Happy Birthday to Me!

10 Apr

Then (a wee version of me)

 

Now (the full-sized version)

Last year I turned 30. That was hard for me. I was depressed for months and I never could put my finger on why that was. Something about being 30 I guess.

Tomorrow I am turning 31 and I couldn’t care less about how old I am going to be. Yes, I will no longer be 30, but ratherĀ  “in my thirties” and I’m fine with that. In fact, I’m SO fine with it, that I’m telling all of you how old I am AND I’m celebrating! For my birthday, Lizze and I decided that anything in our Etsy shop will ship for just 31 cents. Anything. Anywhere at all in the U.S. From a small coffee cozy, all the way up to a huge quilt. That sounds like a great idea to me!

The kids and I are going to hang out and it will be just like any other day except that I’ll get really awesome handmade cards with stick figures drawn on them that say “I love you mommy” – the absolute best gift I could receive. I have 3 little girls and they are going to attempt to bake me a birthday cakeĀ  (ssssssh!!! It’s supposed to be a surprise!).

Celebrate my birthday with me. Stop by the shop tomorrow, April 10th, and anything that your little heart desires will ship anywhere in the United States for 31 cents! Here’s a link to take you there: http://thewanderingstars.etsy.com

I’m looking forward to sharing my birthday with everyone. I hope you stop by and say hi!

Birthdays!

30 Jun

Lizze had her birthday on Monday. I won’t tell how old she is because a lady never reveals her age. We spent the day on the waterfront in Seattle. We had a wonderful seafood lunch at Anthony’s. The sun was shining and we sat outside on the deck. They serve a key lime martini so you know we had to try one. It was very tasty, but super sweet.
After our wonderful lunch, we stopped at an Irish pub to have another drink before heading down to the market to get tickets for the Toadies concert at the end of July.
My daughter is also having a birthday soon. She’s going to be 9 next week. Her name is Alice, and Alice complains very frequently that I never make her anything. She has spent the last few days in Yakima with her grandparents so while she has been gone, I’ve been working on a birthday quilt. It’s nearly done. I only have about half of the binding left to hand stitch down. I hope she loves it. After I started working on it, she said that she hates pink. Either she will be very happy with it, or you will see it listed for sale in our shop next week.
