~It's my birf-day!~

Once Kevin and I were going through a Burger King drive-through, and the gal taking our money had dollar bills pinned to her uniform. Kevin asked her why she had the money pinned to her, and she said,

"It's my birf-day!"...all pleased and happy with herself.


It's my birf-day!

I turned 31 today. Thirty was a good year, and I'm excited to see what the Lord will do in my 31st year! I haven't gone about town with dollar bills pinned to my shirt though! (LOL)

My sweet, darling, handsome, awesome, wonderful, superb husband got me the gift of all gifts: a laptop! I can't wait to be blogging from Starbucks, or for goodness sakes, the couch! =)

I've had a good day so far! Shopping, shopping, shopping! Here are my yarn goodies:

The deep red yarn is for a cabled scarf/hat set. The blue yarn in the front is another skein for my afghan, and the white yarn is mohair, for my scarf. I'm going to give it another go in the yarn that the pattern calls for. I totally love the yarn shop that I went to. They encouraged me to sit down and do my gauge swatch so I could tell what size needles to buy. How awesome is that? And I'm really glad I did too, it took me three different needle sizes before I got the right gauge!

The only downer to my day has been the panicky feeling I get whenever I think of my sewing machine. I dropped it off for maintenance and it is going to take about two weeks for me to get it back. The very next store I went to was my new favorite fabric store. I looked at fabric, I agonized over patterns, and then I walked out of the store. I couldn't bear to buy fabric and not have a way to sew it up! I'll be so happy to get my machine back! Oh, and my scissors too! They were long overdue to be sharpened.

***I'll be back later on to announce the bloggy giveaway contest! Stay tuned!***

~Have a nice day!~

Happy bd & have a good one. I have to use my moms Win XP laptop alot cuz my 486 laptop is sooo slow & my WIn 98 computer needs a larger hardrive & more ram memory so the browser crashes alot. My mom had her sewing machine like yours fixed awhile back. It was problems with the bobbin. God Bless...

Happy belated birthday, Tammy! I am sorry I did not visit and give you birthday wishes sooner!

A laptop is an amazing gift. I am so happy that your husband gave you one!

Btw...In my area we have St. Louis Bread Co. (known elsewhere as Panera Bread Co.) and they have free wireless internet and awesome pastries! My husband is a student and his small group meets there every week to do their group projects because of the good food and free internet. (Unfortunately, Starbucks in my area charges for internet. I am jealous if you get it for free!)
