Pre-Birthday Celebration and a Reminder

Today is your last chance to comment if you want to win an apron.

Wednesday was my birthday.

It was a rockin' good time.

But we must do this in two parts.
First, Tuesday, the day before the big day.

I got the hutch.
Oh yes I did.

That man of mine delivered.
It got dropped off Tuesday night,
I knew I would.

Tuesday Holly and I went on an adventure
to find the perfect piece of Red Glass to add to the collection.
Holly's gift to me.

Isn't she a gem?
And we were even still friends
after driving around for TWO HOURS
trying to find the stupid antique mall.
Four kids, whining and screaming, for approximately 1.75 of these two hours.
Her iphone hates me and had me driving all over Mapleton
when the stupid store was right off the freeway

We found, as expected, some prime Red Glass.
And we escaped it all without breaking anything.
This was my fear
since some of the pieces there cost more than my life is worth.

Holly is an amazing finder.
You want something?
Give that girl a mission.
She delivers.
I could walk right by a booth and see nothing
and she would call me back and hold up a whole stack of Cape Cod plates.
Its a gift.

I want to go back.
Just to peruse the merchandise and dream.

It was a lovely pre birthday day.
And I bought lots of red glass.
So did Holly
Who sneakily was getting it on the sly for my gift

from the MIL
(mother in law, that is how she signs her cards, the MIL, I love it.)

And it was even still the day before my birthday!
I am a lucky, lucky girl.
