TODAY is my 50th birthday……

The cake above was one of my 2 VERY SPECIAL birthday cakes made by my VERY SPECIAL nurse friends who know me VERY well.

I DID NOT want the traditional Happy 50th Birthday Cake and asked them to put their baking skills to great use for me.

They came through.

Why the LEGO cake?

Ever since Nic was young, I would pick up random Legos he left behind and hold on to them.

I soon found myself with QUITE a collection.

Last year I started putting them in the vent in my car and they made me SMILE

My friend Winnie, who I drive home when we work together said they would make a cute cake………..THEY DID

THANK YOU Winnie!!!

This next cake was made with LOVE by my good friend Kristin who made a similar cake for a bridal shower.

I told her how much I loved it and well kinda asked if she would make me one for my 50th!!! 🙂

It is surrounded by Kit Kats…whats NOT to LOVE!!

It was YUMMY!!!!!

THANK YOU Kristin!!!

It has been the BEST Birthday YET!!!!!

Here I am gearing up for 2 busy nights of work……

The book cover doesn’t really do me justice……..

LOTS of empty seats for my TICKET 🙂

I dragged my friend Shannon to the EARLY movie last Sunday………..

The first showing of any movie at Century Theaters is $6.50.

We were there BRIGHT and EARLY for the 10:15 showing.

It was EVEN too EARLY for popcorn.

She was cracking up at me…….

Early bird Specials are FUN, exciting and if you can run faster than a senior citizen rule my world!!!

After the movie we went to an EARLY bird salad and then on for some RETAIL therapy……

EVERYWHERE we went at the great mall , there was a gift with purchase

and

we MUST have looked like we needed it,

because YES, we bought them, shared them , laughed at them……

We were QUITE the pair, BUT I had SOOOOO MUCH fun!!!! xoxoxoxo Shan

No thank you we have our 25 gifts with purchase for TODAY!!!!!

Now we start August getting Mr. Drew ready for the big bright world of college……..more shopping for me……….Helloooo Shannon????

Can we get a free gift with sheets????

I LOVE cards!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hallmark JUST came out with a line of cards made for giving to your children………

I had so many that were PERFECT for what I wanted to say to MY boys…….

IN the rush of busy days, I cannot ALWAYS tell them how much they mean to me…….

I am getting better and we TALK all the time, but a card slipped under their pillowcase at night confirms how special they are to me.

I LOVE MY BOYS!!!!

OUR new MOTTO……..

A trip Downtown to the Westin Saint Francis , no less, to meet up with 100 fascinating, fun bloggers. It was an easy to get to know group and information sharing was free-flowing. I felt a little  overwhelmed with my lack of twitter knowledge for the first few seconds, but caught on or asked my neighbor.

This was Bloggy Boot Camp and I was inspired. NO hard exercise involved, just round table chats with great women. I actually think I sat TOO much as I really enjoyed my walk back to Bart.   Now to process all the great ideas……

Thank you SITS girls for sponsoring….Tiffany you ROCK!!!!
