Lookie, Lookie!

I went to my oncologist today and my husband and I planned on stopping at Brighton on the way home. If you want to know about the oncologist, go to my other blog....My Journey with Teal.

Anyways, as Karen at Some Day are Diamonds knows....I wanted one thing for my birthday. It was a little thing at Brighton...so we went there, picked it out, and then my hubby told me to go bye bye....I knew he probably wanted to get me a little surprise, so I obediantly left!

Out he comes with these....I haven't opened them yet. I would like to wait until Thursday, but since he won't be here that day, I probably won't wait. But you will have to!!

BTW, and this is so wierd I know, but I had to use the little girls room while I was there...and ladies, if you ever go to an official Brighton store, do yourself a favor and ask to use the restroom...it is ADORABLE!

I'm so sorry to hear the 'not so good' news; oh, but please have faith and keep praying. I so admire your wonderful attitude. I can't imagine myself being so upbeat in the same situation, but understand that the attitude is half the battle. I do know you are hurting inside, but that husband of yours seems to be the best and reason enough to go on. Enjoy your presents - I can't wait to see what is inside!!! Still praying for you, Sally

We share the same birthday! It's ironic b/c I knew I wanted a Pandora bracelet for my b-day (use to do the add a bead thing), but the 1st store I saw the beads @ had them on a Brighton watch. That made the choice tougher. Have a happy b-day! May we forever stay young. I know there is good stuff in your bags! Hope all went well @ the dr.

Linda said...

I love Brighton too. I can hardly wait to see your gifts. Have a great Thursday and Happy Birthday a little early...hugs, Linda

Tardevil said...

My b-day is the 18th too! I actually got the Pandora bracelet, but when that gets filled up, I want the Brighton watch and will most likely get more Pandora beads for it...my new favorite thing. It's just that they add up in $$, so it will take a while to collect them. I didn't need a new watch yet, so I hated to get the watch until I NEED one! :) Happy b-day early!

Karen Valentine said...

Happy Birthday! I am sorry your news wasn't good yet. It will be next time when they use the new treatment... I admire your sparkle! I can't wait to see what your presents are! Your hubby is a "keeper"!

Happy Birthday Ceekay! I am a complete Brighton lover too. Can't wait to see what you got.

Susan said...

I love surprises.

Have a wonderful birthday!
Many wishes!

I love Brighton, too, Ceekay. However, I don't own any! I think my husband just doesn't pick up on clues anymore without a lot of major hinting. Even then, it doesn't always work.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday...I'm looking forward to seeing your treasures! L, Dana

Tardevil said...

Happy, happy birthday Ceekay! Here's to our celebrating another great year! Can't wait to see what's in your bags!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Did you open your gifts yet?

Have a wonderful day!


Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Ceekay, you'll never guess what the bases for my top hats were...an oatmeal container & a french fried onion container! They're made of cardboard so they can be sawed off (w/ a steak knife) to whatever size you want. I decoupaged them w/ paper first & then glued them to a round circle of 2-layered card stock. Then decorate!

I hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Dear Ceekay,

I too adore Brighton. Can't wait to see what you receive. Above all my wish for you is that you enjoy the day and will have a happy and HEALTHY year.

I'm praying.

Myrna said...

Popping in to wish you a Happy Birthday Ceekay!

Kathy said...
