Happy Birthday to Me lol

Since it was on a Saturday Hubby went and got me breakfast, then we went to the West Side market and picked up steaks for dinner. MMMM very Yummy.

Hubby got me this really cool candle from 
He said he had to go into the Christmas Stash since my real present didn't arrive yet.
He wanted me to have something to open.

 See that Gold Circle? It's a ring...
Yeah you read right- a RING
How awesome is that????

The website said there is a ring valued from $10-$5,000 in there

 and it will take 10-15 hours to get to it


At this point it was loose enough to grab out with tweezers

Wrapped in Gold

in a small baggie


It burns for 100+ hours (I think the web site says 140 hours)
Mine is still going strong- it's apple. It has a light sent, not overpowering 
and is burning even for the most part.
It is a soy base candle and unlike other Soy candles I have had-
this one actually burns clean! No black soot.

***Disclaimer: Diamond Candles did not pay me to review their candle, but if they want to send me one for free for reviewing it I wouldn't object  =-)***

 At work :
The Friday before Arleen made me Brownies 
and I shared with everyone, they were very good
On the Monday after:
Linda got me a cookie =)

 Nancy made me cupcakes

 I had a surprise in the mail later in the week from Corrine =)

TaDa!! A beautiful scarf!!
It is made from Vanna yarn and it is VERY soft =)

LOVE it!

Here I am with the scarf in action before work
I am not a good selfie picture taker....

We went to Mom's the weekend after my birthday for dinner.
I wanted to wait until we had Q....
See him? He's in a food coma....
We had a delicious dinner of fried chicken, corn, 
green beans, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and rolls

I tucked him in LOL

DQ Ice Cream Cake!!! MMM

This was the original birthday gift-it hadn't arrived in time. It came a few weeks later. 
A Charm Bracelet! =) 
It is very fun and you can change out the beads.

The side the arrow is pointing to are the beads that came with the bracelet =) 
Hubby had me pick the beads. 
After the fact I realized I should have had a theme or something...
to make it cohesive.
Not an OCD nightmare haha
 Maybe he will pick a bead out for my fun new bracelet for Christmas =)
