Happy Birthday to me!!
As you can well tell I am happy on my birthday. Things started off great -- went to a friend's church garage sale, and spent some money on quilting stash. Someone cleaned out their stash, mostly fabric. I spent $10 for the lot of stash... and guess what I found??? A pair of pinking shears!!! I have wanted a pair so badly now and I wouldn't ever ask for them becuz I know they are a bit pricey... well I got a pair!!
Then off to the gym for my water aerobics class -- and when I scanned in, the staff said Happy birthday. I was like what?? how did you know? Well they have a program that notifies the staff of a birthday when the member scans in -- GREAT!! I was hoping that no one would know at the gym... well they found out. And while we are exercising, the instructor gets everyone to sing -- sigh!! I love them all dearly but UGH!! LOL
Then I get home to find none other than ...PUMPKINS!!! large medium and small ones!! I asked my family for pumpkins this year for my b-day. I have this odd fascination with pumpkins... and even love to fondle them at the grocery store. They are so big and round, and I rub them like a Buddha belly. I cannot help it. Well Donald got me 2 lg., 2 med., and 4 little happy jacks. My in-laws brought by 2 large one. They are adorning my porch steps, and I plan on taking some pictures to share with you.
Then I get a call for a job interview!! I got cleaned up and dressed nicely... and the interview was great. The manager told me that he would call me on Sunday to let me know when to be there, that's ok. Well, he called before we got home and said I have the job!!! I will be working at Michaels!! How cool will that be?? It's temporary seasonal help but it can become permanent. Fingers crossed. Also, associates' discount is 25% off -- but there's one week for appreciation and it'll be 50% off -- there goes my paycheck!! LOL
Donald and Justin take me out to dinner at my favorite place called Genghis Grill -- omg it's soooo good! And for dessert we go to Marble Slab for yummy ice cream!! So much for going to the gym!!! HA!
All in all-- It was a WONDERFUL birthday and I haven't had one of those in a long time!!
Special notice to Alice-- I hope that you don't think that I was upset with the coins -- FAR from it. Just hacked with the banks here... who know it would be so hard to get it exchanged. My bank said we don't deal with foreign currency.. I was like 'you're a bank.. it's money?!?!' LOL No worries, I might just even hang on to it for Justin to collect. Smiles!
