What a Great Birthday!!!

Wow, I can't believe another year has passed me by! My birthday was last Wednesday and we celebrated by going to watch the taping of The Price Is Right once again. It was a fun day spent with Kristi, Andy, Robyn, Becky and Joyce. We met up in the morning at Mom's house and took off for LA. We parked our car at The Grove and headed over to Chipolte for some lunch before heading into the studio. On our way out of the parking structure we found this cute little cupcake store called "Wonderland Bakery". We all looked around at all of the cute stuff that they had in there and I found some really cute ceramic items that I thought about getting to display in my garden kitchen window. We also found some yummy looking cupcakes, so we checked to see how late they were going to be open and decided to come back by on our way home...

While we were waiting to go in to the show, Andy went into the gift shop and bought me a Dancing With The Stars sweatshirt! It was very sweet of him since he knows that I just love that show and it is very comfy and warm!

So after the taping of the show we all went to Wood Ranch for a yummy birthday dinner.

Then we headed out to the cupcake store... only to find out that while we were at The Price is Right, Wonderland Bakery was in the middle of a dispute with the property management company and they were no longer at this location! Can you believe that??? In the few hours that were were gone they had moved out, blackened the windows and had a security guard stationed in front of the store. We were all disappointed that we weren't going to have a cupcake for dessert and I wasn't going to get any of their cute ceramic items... Oh well.....

On Friday night Barry, Andy, Kristi, Rich, Sarah, Mom and I went to Hibachi Steak house for dinner. Mom gave me a gift card for Amazon, which will be perfect to help keep my kindle full of good reading... Kristi, Rich and Sarah gave me a mouse for the new laptop computer that Barry ordered for me and is due to arrive any day now!!! Yeah, I can't wait.

Well, Kristi had another surprise for me also... She had gone to the Wonderland Bakery website and ordered these for me... What a surprise and I can't wait until they arrive.

This was one of the best birthday's I have had in a very long time... I guess it is ok to get older. Thanks everyone for helping to make it a special birthday!

Another Sassy Reveal

Cherie had another great sketch for us this month at Sassy Lil' Sketches. I hope that you will stop by and check out all the cards this month and join in. We have two great sponsors again this month. Our paper sponsor is Tidbitz in Time and our digital sponsor is CoCoDinGo.

This is the card I made using We R Memories Keeper's White Out Collection. Pia issued a card challenge to us over at the Sassy Lil' Sketches Forum to use only scraps on cards. This was my first card this year and it was made with my scraps.

This is the last month of the current term on Sassy Lil' Sketches and it is the last time I will be revealing on the 14th. Starting next month they will have a card sketch blog with reveals on the 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th. My reveal dates will be on the 7th and 21st. Be sure to watch for all of the great sketches by Cherie.
