As predicted, yesterday was my BBE (Best Birthday Ever).
Fiona, my AyePhone, started hootin' & hollar'n first thing in the morning and didn't stop all day. Texts, emails, phone calls and Facebook messages came in from friends and family from all over the world. I was genuinely surprised and touched that so many people took the time to wish me a happy birthday. I am truly blessed to have such wonderful people in my life and I fell like a big sappity-sap because even as I'm writing this, my eyes are a little watery. It's been a while since my birthday's been a big deal and I'm still basking in the glow of love from my amazing peeps.
The thoughtful messages, flowers and cards would have been more than enough, but I was also showered with presents. Shiny, beautiful, sparkly presents.
|I've had my eye on this set for quite some time...and Pepi gave it to me!|
|Marc wasn't sure which "shiny necklace set" I had my eye on...so The Pickle gave me this one too, just to be sure.|
|Amazing beautiful driftwood-inspired necklace from my HeteroLifePartner|
|I can't seem to turn this one...but it's a HUGE dragonfly ring! Marc knows me well (and my nails look FAB from the spa yesterday!! - Thanks Mum!)|
|Totally out of left-field, my AMAZING in-laws sent me this beautiful Tiffany's necklace. One heart for Marc & 2 for the boys. It was my first experience opening a little blue box and it was awesome. I'm currently wearing it!|
|My Mum bought me this patent leather oversized clutch from La Galleries LaFayette. Nothing is chic-er than a bag from France, especially one that actually says "chic" on it.|
|This is a "souper" spoon and it's awesome. Another wicked present from my HeteroLifePartner.|
|Marc and I have bacon every Sunday. My HLP thought that it was a very appropriate wallet. It's just hilarious, but thankfully isn't scented.|
So as you can see, I'm a spoiled little princess whose costume jewelry collection now rivals Elizabeth Taylor's. If I were to wear everything at once, I'm fairly certain that I'd be visible from space.
Today'll be much lower-key and then YAY Christmas tomorrow!!
Happy holidays everyone!!!
