Happy Birthday to me!
Yep, today is my birthday and I want this……….
(if you can’t tell, I borrowed this picture from FreedsBakery.com)
If I was anywhere near Las Vegas and Freeds Bakery, I’m thinking I’d eat this cake! :0)
I would also like this for my birthday, but it’s not gonna happen…..WAY too much money for us to spend! It’s a Canon 18 megapixel EOS Rebel and it’s about $750.00+…told ya it’s not gonna happen! lol
What I WILL get for my birthday is probably breakfast fixed by my hubby, a homemade card from my sons and lots of hugs and kisses. I think that’s better than either of the above mentioned items, don’t you? :0)
Yep, today is my birthday so I thought I’d take a second and share a b-day memory with you!
One birthday in particular stands out to me…it’s when I was 8 years old.
My mom and dad built me a house for my birthday. Yep, you read that right…I got a house. They built me a little playhouse in our back yard and named it the Pine Knot Cabin. I wish I had a picture of it, but I don’t. I can tell you about it though. :0)
It had kitchen cabinets with a sink, a sliding glass window made from plexi-glass and a partition that divided the kitchen from the living room. It was furnished with furniture that my grandpa made for me……an adorable little couch and a table and chairs. My mom helped decorate it by putting up decorative plates on the walls and helping me arrange all my stuff just right.
I spent MANY hours in that little house….it was a perfect little place to get away. (from whatever an 8 year old needs to get away from! lol)
I’ve had a LOT of birthday since then, but that one will always stand out….I mean hey, I got a house.
What birthday memories do you all have…please share!
Love you all so much
