On Saturday, I woke up bright and early because I was so excited! I spent the day working on projects around the house and trying to take a nap to get ready for the evening (which I wasn't ever able to do). On Saturday night, I was invited to Ginny's house with my friends Magnolia and Daisy, along with the husbands and the kids, for a barbeque. The weather was cold and drizzly, but the guys made the burgers on the grill and they were delicious as usual!
A few weeks before, I had decided I wanted to make bracelets for Ginny, Magnolia and Daisy. Just call these Grown Up Friendship Bracelets!
In the early evening, I went off to the party where I had a blast. The kids - Miss I, Mr. O, and Baby M - were their usual, adorable selves. They were very excited about the whole thing! Ginny made a delicious dinner - as she always does! - that included the burgers cooked by the guys, homemade sweet potato fries, and salad with strawberries and goat cheese, which is my very favorite. Miss I selected a cake for me and even had my name written on it! I wish I'd thought to take any photos, but we were having way too much fun. Maybe next year! My lovely friends also brought gifts for me, which was so very sweet of them!
Magnolia and her husband, Larch, brought this cute set of red bowls and some delicious smelling hand soap. I didn't realize until I unwrapped them that each of the bowls was a little bit different!
And even though Ginny and her family had done something super nice for me already by hosting the party, they also gave me a present. I'm so spoiled!
here. Yay! Now they're part of my collection.
