BirthWEEKs are WAY better than BirthDAYS!!

I mention to Melissa that I am feeling so very fortunate to be celebrating my birthday all week this year! I haven't even hit my actual day yet - it's tomorrow, the first day of Spring; Woo Hoo! - and have received several wonderful surprises. I mentioned the special treats Debbie sent me late last week (Debbie, I am using the stitch markers on my shorty cardigan; hopefully, I'll get it finished in time for Orlando!)

My co-workers gave me a very cute little notepad and pen set today AND a to-die-for chocolate mini cake (oops, ate it before I could take a photo! It was chocolate, after all!) It looks blue and green but it's really purple and green - one of my favorite color combos. We don't really recognize birthdays in our office (small office comprised of mostly (dull) men) so this was a very sweet surprise for me.



But best of all was a Birthday Blowout Box from Allison! She pampered me with all kinds of awesome goodies including two skeins of THE softest alpaca yarn. She and I share a love of purple and the yarn is exactly the perfect shade. It might be hard to see but there is the cutest little spreader, perfect for dips and spreads! Can't wait for the next book club to try it out. The other goodies (not all are pictured) all reflect things that she thought would be perfect for me - and she was SOOOO right. Even the card is perfect!


But check out the following.... Aren't these a hoot??!!! Not sure if you can tell but the gloves are hot pink and have a very cute gingham ruffle at the top. I've never been too fond of cleaning but how can you not want to put these bad boys on and clean the toilet or something??!!! I am going to HAVE to put on an "I Love Lucy" style frilly apron first to complete the picture.

Friends are awesome. Love you guys!
