Happy Birthday To Me

Hey Y'all how are ya today?
I am having a pretty low key day, off work for 3 days helps!
So it is that time of year again :)
I have aged another year! Phew  the last one flew past too quickly.
I love this cake! I found the photo on Bing search.

My Birthday is actually Monday and since I have to work that day I decided to make a weekend of it early.
Tomorrow I think I am gonna take the day to myself and wander some junk shops, eat some place Lee would never and just enjoy myself. Its supposed to he sunny and 60 tomorrow so I think it will be a good day for it.
the Daytona 500 and since Lee got cable installed for the first time in years I can actually see it! WHOO HOO! 
If somehow it has escaped you I am a huge race fan (well racing,football, baseball,etc...)and Jeff Burton has been my driver for years, now that he is semi retired I have to pull for me 2nd favorite Jimmie Johnson!
Lee is a Jeff Gordon fan, so are both my sister in laws and my brother in law. 
So the plan for Sunday is good food and the race. I am a simple gal it will make me happy. Monday is back to work and my 41st year. Next Saturday the family will come over and celebrate with me..
Thank You to each of you for spending another year with me. LOVE YOU!

Cotton pickin Fun Swap!

Hey Y'all! How are ya today? It is snowing again here in the southeastern part of Virginia, I cannot recall a time since I was very little (maybe late 70s) since we have had so much snow. I know all my Northern and West and Mid West friends think that is hysterical, but we don't get this much snow...ever! It'll be gone quick....again so I am gonna love it while I can.
OK So I promised you my other swap!
Oh my gosh have you met Holly at Cotton Pickin Fun?
She is so talented and creative and we have so much in common! I have a new friend for life in her! We love a lot of the same things so when Sandy at 521 Lake Street matched us for her Valentine Swap She could not have picked a better pair! Thanks Sandy :)
We both LOVE everything Vintage and golly did she spoil me.
The Cutest and sweetest tiny handmade felt bear and heart.
In a tiny valentine decorated matchbox!

Hey Yall,
How are you today?
Do you have a favorite month? I have 4 favorite months...February, April, October & December.
I think February is my most favorite, for several reasons.
WINTER! I love it.
 I love the feeling of February, Valentines Day, My niece April, My friends Nathan, Amy, Joy and Julie, My sister Laura, and I all have our Birthday this month.
Joy, Amy and I all share the same birthday, I think that is so neat :)
Joy and I went to JR High and High School together and Amy and I worked together.
They are special ladies.
Speaking of special ladies, I have sent out my February notes, RAK, and Swap packages.
Look at this pile!
