Expressions of Love for my Birthday

Thanks to all those who sent me a birthday greeting via email, Facebook, or a blog comment! I really appreciated all the greetings and it made my day special!

I did have a nice birthday with many expressions of love from my family and friends. That's what I've selected to share with you today:

1. Mum Mum (my MIL) took me to Cracker Barrel for lunch on Thursday. We tried to get some pictures of us together, but I think the waitress was photographically challenged! After we ate, we looked around the gift shop, and Mum Mum bought me a swirly fall skirt and shirt and this "apple pie" potpourri thingie that you warm in the oven, so you can fill your home with the tantalizing scents of apples and cinnamon.

2. On Saturday, Alan and the children cleaned the house and caught up the laundry while I was at the swim meet. So, I came home to a Clean House! :)

3. Alan took me out to dinner Saturday night. We went to Longhorn, where I ordered the Parmesan Chicken breast with a baked sweet potato and steamed veggies. YUMMO!

4. Tiffany made me my favorite cake -- Apple Chip Cake! I will have to post the recipe!

5. Tiffany got up early Sunday morning to leave little notes all over my room and bathroom. She also made me a special breakfast -- a scrumptious omelette with cheddar cheese, chopped ham, tomatoes, onion and bell pepper. It was soo good!

6. Alan and Tiffany made Sunday dinner. Then the children worked together to clean up the dishes. I was banned from the kitchen! :)

7. The children gave me many little handmade cards and some Dollar Tree gifts! ;)

8. Alan's gift was a new crockpot! I am so excited because it is much larger than the one I have now and is oval instead of round, holding 7 quarts.

9. Big T called from college to wish me a happy birthday. He was excited about the new BIG crock pot, and is hoping I will try it out this weekend when he comes home for a visit! :)

10. My friend, Martha, is taking me out to lunch today and already brought me a birthday gift last Friday. :)

I feel very blessed by all of these expressions of love from my family and friends!!!

Edit: I had a lovely lunch with my friend, Martha today! We went to Chili's, where I ordered the same menu item that I ate on my birthday last year -- Quesadilla Explosion! It was soooo good! We sat outside, so we could enjoy the cooler temperatures! Martha had on a new shirt and looked so pretty, and I really should have taken a picture -- but we just had so much fun talking that I forgot to!!! Thank you, Martha!! :)

You are blessed! You have a beautiful and wonderful family who honors you! I am happy for you. But I know they are that way because you invest your life in them (or is it on them - sometimes I still have a hard time with prepositions). Anyway, God bless you. Hopefully, one day I can celebrate your birthday with you and we can reminisce together. Much love,
