Let the birthday week begin!

I’m a firm believer in stretching a birthday celebration out over the course of the week. And the way I see it, my birthday week celebration officially started yesterday afternoon….with the new roof.

Hey, I don’t care if it’s because of the hail storm last month. If the new roof is installed the week of my birthday, I count it as a birthday gift to me.

So, this is what my insurance agent gave me. She also mails me a card with a coupon for a free ice cream cone at Sonic each year.


My MIL left this morning for a long weekend in California, so last night we had dinner with her, and she had my birthday gifts for me to open early. She saw these re-usable shopping bags and decided they make the perfect wrapping for my birthday.

These babies from Shoe Dazzle should be arriving today!

And this morning, I may or may not have treated myself by ordering this cute brush set from Sephora. (I always go through Ebates and earn 8% cash back.)

So there you have it — the celebration has begun. Birthday cupcakes for everyone!
