Birthday Loot!

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

So my birthday was last week. (Great big 33, if you must know. The 30's are starting to seem a little...real) Of course that means I have to dish about what I got!

My big gift was a new bike. My old one was more of a mountain bike and it was heavy and clunky and just not very pretty. We have discovered that I like to ride on paved roads (less hard on the tush!), so I really needed something different. My husband surprised me with a beauty!

My sister got me a very pretty fairy wind chime.

My mom got me an Adele cd and she also supplied me with the books. I've already spread them out around the house, so I'm probably forgetting something.
My books
Down in the Garden by Anne Geddes
The Frogs and Toads All Sang by Arnold Lobel
Juniper Berry by M. P. Kozlowsky
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
I'll Be Watching You by Charles de Lint
That ribbon in the center is a very pretty bookmark my grandmother got for me.

My mom also had my uncle make me a couple of things. He's been doing a lot of wood working recently and we think he's getting good at it!

She got me this cute little rocker (in my favorite shade of blue) that can be used as a bird feeder:

And an adorable bird house, called The Love Shack.

So many pretties! I'm shamelessly spoiled!
