Saturday Updates!

Happy Saturday!
This has been a super fun and busy week. Thursday was my birthday and I have to say my husband spoiled me completely.
I would love to share the gifts that I recieved--they really are something.

I recieved this beautiful boquet of flowers---they are just soooo pink:) This was from my sister and her family.

Look at this cake--it is an ice cream cake--my dear sweet husband walked through the door with this--->
Then he had these presents for me. I have to tell you a little story--when he came home the day before, I had my new crockpot out that my grandma had bought me and I was using it---he said--OH NO!!! He had bought the same crockpot ---so he told me to take it back and get something else--so I took the crock pot back and used the money to buy some pretty Under things--so those gifts are not pictured--but he did get me a beautiful crockpot along with these gifts too--I just already had that crockpot:)
..a deep fryer--we used this last night and it fries beautifully. Kevin knows I am not a fan of frying so he thought this would take care of the greasy mess--and it does:) I don't think it has made it healthier but that is okay.
...a new knife set---with TWO sets of scissors.
..a big cutting board--I like how it looks on my island
..a food processor--I was playing with this yesterday--oh it is so much fun--I had a small one, but never got around to getting a bigger one. I love this one. I am going to need some recipes or hints and tips about this one.
...My husband also took all of us out to dinner---I got to pick the restaurant--I picked this nice family restaurant---- I also received this Pajama Gram in the mail, from my inlaws--the pajamas are so cute--it comes with a sachet and this beautiful box. I received money from my Father and Grandmother--which is always nice.

This was a really wonderful birthday and I can't believe all the nice things I received, I truly was not expecting all this ---I am so very thankful. Did I mention, I am know officially 38---yay!!!!

Do you all remember a couple days back I said I was going to stay home and do a big clean?? Well, it did not happen--I did something else--I took my kids to the beach--YES, I FOUGHT the crowds and went to the beach--it was glorious. I remember before children I spent countless hours and days at the beach---then I took them to Baskin Robbins and got them ice cream. So, now today is Saturday and I am so behind on my chores----I am going to do a super big clean today which consists of scrubbing, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, dusting, laundry--and so on. Wish me luck ...LOL--I will of course be taking breaks and visiting all of you wonderful ladies---what is going on with your Saturday? I so wish it would rain--I miss the Thunderstorms in Georgia------is it raining anywhere? I did a search once and looked up where it rains the most in the 48 contiguous states and told Kevin , we have to move there...LOL--It was Mobile anyone there? Does it rain a lot there? Anyway, I think I have chatted enough----Happy Saturday!!

Happy Birthday!!!! What lovely gifts. I have been wanting a fryer for some time. Chicken is such a mess, otherwise! I fry pickles, too when we have a bbq. yum yum! Hubby says they use to much oil. What do you think? Have fun using all your new things!!! :-)

Happy Belated Birthday! You were spoiled! And deservedly so! Have fun with all of the new kitchen goodies! (I'm laughing, thinking, "He really likes her cooking and wants her to keep it up!)

Happy belated birthday! I didn't know you used to live in GA! North GA has been in such a severe drought for over a year and we haven't been hearing too many thunderstorms lately. We did have a couple last week..Praise the Lord! But, we need SO much more.

Enjoy all your new kitchen gadgets!!! :)

What lovely gifts! Your family is very thoughtful. It rains a lot in West Virginia all year around. We just moved to Colorado and boy is it dry here. We did have a nice rain yesterday, though. I miss rain and clouds, too. I actually look forward to them now, whereas in WV it rained so much that I dreaded those days. Hope you get some rain soon.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY.. my you are a young thing (compared to me LOL)

I love your gifts. When I was married to my ex-hub I would love those kinds of gifts. People , friends and family thought it was weird, but thats what I wanted. Im sure you are going to have so much fun using your kitchen gadgets.

It rains a good amount here in spring and fall. Not so much this summer, although we just had two full days of rain and thunderstorms. Was so needed and so nice!

Happy belated birthday Julieann!
Enjoy these very happy days. You'll have to let me know how that deep fryer works for you. DH bought me one in May, and I've only tried it once. Tried making onion rings, and the batter stuck terribly to the basket. Cleaning nightmare!! I'm sure there's a better way, but I've gone back to the oil in a pan on the stove. Any suggestions would be appreciated! (I feel the same way you do about frying.)
Sending you a cyberhug and lots of abiding friendship love,
