37 Years

I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal. Will Ferrell and I share the same birthday.

And my grandaddy Alvin too. We share the same birthday. And like 6 people in my home church.

So, maybe I'm not really a big deal.

Anywho, this year, Mike asked what I wanted for my birthday and although there is a Dooney and Bourke purse I'm dying to have, I opted for an experience we could both enjoy and something we'd been talking about doing for a while.

A couple's portrait.

No, not really. I wanted him to take me to the Inn at Fearrington in Pittsboro, NC for a night.

The couple's portrait in our room was a bonus. (More on the Inn at Fearrington in another post)

We have very few pictures together since I'm always the one behind the camera and he refuses to learn how to use the darn thing, so I managed to use the self-timer for like the second time ever and capture some shots of us right before dinner Saturday night.

So unlike that adorable purse with the great hardware and style that would go with almost everything in my closet, that will soil and stain, rip and grow old, I have these images, that will remain forever. 

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Thanks for the patience you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
