My Birthday

Thank you all for the birthday wishes!  I had a pretty good day.  I spent the first part of the day being lazy and hanging out with Elora, then went over to a friend's house in the afternoon to start teaching her and her daughters how to crochet.  The oldest girl had already learned a bit, and taught some of it to her sister, so I my job was a lot easier than anticipated.  I had only to correct a bit of technique for one, and set the other to practicing her chain.  My friend had never learned, but she was a natural.  I left her to practice chaining as well.  We only spent an hour on crocheting, and then my friend and got to just sit and shoot the breeze for a while.   I'm going back this Monday to give them another lesson, and for another chance to chat.

Brandon was able to get back from Poland late that afternoon, and though he called me to let me know he was almost home, he still made it there before I did.  I was excited that he was home, but he didn't wish me a happy birthday when I talked to him on the phone, or when I got home, and I was disappointed that he'd forgotten.  But then I found a card with my name on it sitting at my computer, and I knew that he hadn't forgotten.  It was both terribly sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny.  I wanted to share it, and he told me I could.  This is the front of the card:

And this is the inside:

 I am going to keep that card forever.  Between the Kindle he got me for Christmas, the printer/scanner he got me for Valentine's day (still on its way), and the camera he got for my birthday (shipped out yesterday, yay!), he is on quite the roll.  He's going to have me spoiled, if he's not careful.  And then the card.  Holy cow, I love that man.  :)

Don't forget, if you haven't already entered for my surprise giveaway, you still have time!  You just need to leave me a comment on this post to enter.  You have until this Saturday, and I will announce the winner on Sunday.


  1. Well, I can see why ya love him. Glad he made it for your b day!

  2. AWW- glad it was a good bday and that he did remember after all :)

  3. He's a keeper...definitely a keeper! Love you...all 3.

  4. Nice one Brandon! Happy Birthday Adrienne!

  5. That is a ridiculously awesome card. I might make Tony read it, so that he understands why I now have higher expectations, and knowing our men I will probably get some smartass comment about it (until my birthday, when I get an awesome card too).

    Glad you had an awesome birthday! Can't wait to see some pics from that new camera coming your way!
