Seeing Double

I woke up this morning to a surprise waiting for me on my counter.  My husband said he could NOT resist.   My husband hasn't brought me a stuff animal in years.  I sure do treasure this one!

I think Bentley is a little confused!

I love me some Birthday Presents!

Well, I finally feel myself again.  I hate being sick!

I wanted to share my birthday presents.  A girl has to enjoy her presents!!

 Rose from A Hint of Home sent me this picture holder.  It goes into your computer USB and lights up.  I have never seen anything like it...

 She also sent me these star battery tea lights.  I had remarked how cute they were on her blog.

 My dear Aunt Barb who just celebrated her 83rd birthday sent me this recipe book from her Senior group!
I love it!!

Lynn from Shabby Story sent me this adorable card and piece of framed is so pretty!!

At Flemings...they always give you a dessert and a signed card for your birthday...

The flamingo and card is from Candy at Sweet Meanderings.  She knows I fell in love with the beach in Juno beach....

The CK signs are a gift from Katherine at Yellow Rose Arbor.  They are so glittery....What a special surprise!

and my bracelet from my is Tri-color gold....

I think I was spoiled!!!  Thank you all!!

Itsy Bitsy....

spider Hoarder COLLECTOR!

I wanted to share some "personal friends" as my hubby calls them.  You know, stuff that you keep for whatever reason......
I think they are unique and will make me a millionaire someday!!!!!  Yah, right!

Anyways....I know where they are, I like them, and I am keeping them...just to make a disclaimer to some unnamed male person that lives here, and it isn't Bentley!!

 Can you guess what company these were from.  My mom LOVED their products!

 The Fuller Brush company.  Now, I am going to do a Shelia...and say...wasn't it clever of me to put the Fuller brush letter openers on a brush?!!?!

 If you have been to this place you will know instantly where these are from.
Zenders in Frankenmuth comes in the dish of ice cream mixed with orange sherbet.
Yeah, like you would part with them??  I don't think so either!

 Now I ask you?  How many of you kept some of the "olden" coffee spoons from McDonalds.  You know they can't use them anymore right...and you know why...right??

 This was a pencil my daddy used.  He got it from a building supply store...probably in the 40's.

see...the little ladder moves up and down...too cute!

You have any little treasures that someday are going to be worth a fortune??  or at least a good tug at the heart?  I KNOW you DO!!

Ah Choo!

I am down for the count.  Sunday this cold took over my body.  I would post a picture of Kleenex...but I don't want to get arrested by the photo police!

I had chemo yesterday.  I find humor in that.  The chemo helps to kill cancer cells, but it doesn't touch a cold cell!!

So hello all, hope you have a great week, and I gotta go now...I need to blow my nose!!

My husband and son took me out for dinner at a favorite restaurant of mine...Flemings Steak House.  Here are some pics....

 My hubby's appetizer....I won't eat this...carpachio...and he didn't eat the bread.  He has lost 110 pounds so far on low-carb.

 My appetizer....brie in a puff pastry....oh my goodness gracious....

 Spicey shrimp.

 All three of us had the special...Filet and stuffed shrimp.  I cannot move!  But I enjoyed almost all of it.  Hubs wouldn't let the last bit of steak go to waste!

 My son and I....

My hubby and me.  See the bracelet....that was a gift from my husband.  It is tri color gold.

A Birthday kiss!

It was a wonderful meal and a great evening.  

I want to thank everyone for their birthday wishes.  I could not believe all of you here and on was a true blessing!

I wish you all could come and

celebrate with me!

Today is my birthday!  I don't mind tooting my own horn....cuz I never thought I would see this birthday!  But I am so glad and thankful to God for another year of getting older.

I thought I would share some pictures.  Go with me down a little memory lane....

I was the only child....

I love this picture.  There is no picture that better describes me...just ask my friends.

I remember the day my Senior pictures came in....I was so happy, I just went home!

This is a picture of me right before my diagnosis.  I have always liked this picture!

So, please enjoy a piece of cake with me....don't worry about gifts...I have many already...but todays gift is another Happy Birthday to Me!!

Why are you sad Ceekay?

Because one of my favorite stores has changed, and I do not like it.

Can you guess?

JCP.  I tried to go with an open mind.  But first of all everything at our store was "different".  Different places.  No sales.  And they said 40% off....well, maybe...but I don't pay those prices.  I only buy if I believe it is a good deal.  I didn't see anything.

I did get a blouse...a sheer one, there was no under tank included.  It was 18.00 and I had a birthday 15.00 off.  But really, I could have lived without it.  If I didn't have the coupon...I wouldn't have bought it.

So, boo.

Happy Day AFTER Valentine's Day!

Remember 2 years ago and my hubby bought me 4 tires for my birthday and Valentine's Day?  He said, " Nothing says Lovin' like a new set of 4!"

Yesterday I got a beautiful card for Valentine's Day.

Today, my hubby went grocery shopping.  He always does that!  Anyways, when I got up this was on the counter!

When I gave him a kiss and thanked him....he said, tell the bloggers..."nothing says lovin' like Valentine's candy 50% off!"

Gotta Love Him!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

with Love to my Blogging Friends!

Will you get a Love Note?  a box of Chocolates?  something sparkly?

Or maybe you will make your love their favorite dinner or dessert!

I have always enjoyed Valentine's Day....I remember the fancy shoebox with a cut in the lid for all my friends to put in a little card.  We were really loved if there was a sucker attached to that card.  From those early days, I knew this day was going to be a favorite of mine!

This beautiful rose was on my rose bush this morning.....a gift of Love from Nature!
Enjoy Valentine's Day with those you Love!  For me, that will be with my hubby, just here at home....but that also will include the other man in my life!!!  my Bentley Boy!

A Voice, Silenced, Too Early.....

I am not a star follower.  I loved the Monkees growing up...I would cross the street to meet Kevin Bacon, and I would be thrilled to have dinner with Anne Burrell. 

But I find it so sad about Whitney Houston.  Even though we don't know the details of her death, we know that she has had a difficult time in her life.  I just think that this is just another proof that fame, money, celebrity....doesn't make a person happy and secure.

I have often sang some of Whitney's songs.  But no one could sing them like she did.  God gave her a beautiful voice....that is now silenced....and so early.

I just have been thinking today, our Lord's day....

This one life will pass, but
Only what's done for Christ will last.
