My Happy Birthday

Yesterday, April 5th, was my 43rd birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better day!  I had my uncle and aunt from GA here with their two grandkids along with my family that live here in Orlando.  We had a big dinner, delicious cake and best of all a lot of laughing!  Hubby made me a confetti cake with pink frosting and my son cut and served it, making sure I got the first piece...how sweet he can be. :)
I was born the night before Easter in 1969.  My mom told me that when she and I were able to leave the hospital, which was about two weeks later due to complications, there were so many flowers blooming everywhere.  
Hope everyone is planning a wonderful Easter weekend!  

A few of my favorite cards. 
The top left card is from my son and the squirrel sings when you pull him out...LOVE it! 
The beautiful wife card is from hubby....gave me tears.
The last one is from Sandie at Chatty Crone...how sweet is she! Thank you Sandie!

I LOVE tulips!  And this little bird bath is going to be a new feeder for my birdies and squirrels.
Coach came out with a new perfume just for summer and this is it.  It smells so clean, fresh and pretty!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
How sweet your husband and son make and serve you your birthday cake! Not many men around that do that anymore.
You my dear are a spring chicken.
I bet when your mom finally brought you home from the hospital, she was happy to see all the spring flowers around her. Women and flowers, it is a huge happy thing...
