sassy red hat (or black)

You're never too old to have fun, right? Roxy's school is celebrating 100 days of school by dressing like you're 100 years old. She decided to kick up her heels and join the classy ladies in the Red Hat Society for this event. Nothing beats putting a smile on your face at 100 years old and greeting the world with a little sass!

cake, cake and more cake

There is one advantage to having your child's birthday just a few days after your own...cake!!! We have had lots and lots of yummy birthday cake keeping our bodies well sugared over the past week. Then, as if we needed more, I made these last night.

Aren't they cute!! Don't let their cuteness fool you. They are a PAIN to make. Not so much the shaping of them as the decorating. I must confess, they're worth the mess. Just don't try to start making your Cake Pops at 10:00pm. If so, you'll be up til around 1:30(ish)am. So with little sleep I am headed to bed.

Birthday's are fun and I am thankful for each one of them. To my princess Roxanne, I love you! Her and I share January as our birthday month. I'm such a lucky mom. Not very many mom's can enjoy a double birthday date with their daughter. Roxanne, I loved you before I even met you and I love you more each and every day. Happy Birthday, baby girl! XOXOXOX Mama

I am in serious need of some detox of the mind, body and soul. I will be starting The Daniel Fast on February 1st. Care to join me? We are just weeks into the new year. I thought it would be a great time to couple of fresh start with a fresh body and renewed spirit.

It's not every day...

...that you receive one of these from a special someone. Wrapped in it's unique little blue box, this gift is perfect for carrying around little essentials like

your keys, debit card and some spare change. But it's also great for carrying extra special things, like...

A sweet note from your Mom. Thanks, Mama. I love you too!
And, it's not everyday that you get a beautiful birthday card (picked out by your father-n-law, wink, wink) that blows your socks off. Not only were the words beautiful but the card itself was absolutely dazzling. Bright lime green damask print with a sheen of silver. Bubbly pink embellishments and a pretty bright pink ribbon. It's been my favorite so far! Thank you Rick & Lorraine for your kind gift and birthday wishes!
And, it's not everyday that you get 1/2 a dozen bold birthday balloons with long curly strings, fresh glazed doughnuts and cards galore from everyone in the house. Thanks Romeo for an awesome morning birthday surprise! And to my sweet little girls...thank you. Thank you for the awesome drawings of a birthday cake (Roxanne) and a rocket and a puppy dog (Bryar). Birthday cards are always extra special when they have a handmade drawing inside. You little girls are the best and I love you!
Thanks everyone for making my birthday so bright and blessed. And to's only 9:00am! It's gonna be a GOOD birthday day today!!

Once again, I survived the Gift Mart....sheeewwww. Oh, and I shopped in record time, only 6 hours! LOL I think I am starting to get the hang of it. Boy oh boy is spring going to be glorious around the garden center. The gift shop is going to be spilling over with unique gifts of all kinds. There's a sneak peek up there at one of the items that will be added to the gift shop. I've dedicated an entire display to GIRLS!!! Girls birthday's, teen pop, tweens, moms and lots of other girlie fun! I'll be sure to post more picture once our shipments are in and the displays are up.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was perfect, just me and my Romeo! The snow/ice is still lingering in spots but for the most part it is back to normal in the south. School is out today for MLK and the girls and I are taking full advantage of a day of fun. Dirty dishes, piles of laundry, unmade beds...see ya later, we're leaving you behind. So, off we go!
