What I Did...

Actually it's what we did for my birthday. My husband and son were so excited about getting me up to open presents that I did not even have time to change out of my Winnie the Pooh Pjs.

Thank goodness, they gave me time to wash and dry my hair. They bought me a new Bible. My old one is exactly 20 years old. I had gotten it on my 18th birthday. Yep, do the math..My other big present was a Kitchenaid Mixer. Yippie!!! I had asked for one of those a a couple of years ago. I had given up on it, since I never got it.

For lunch, we went to Atlanta to The Old Spaghetti Factory. All I can say is,"Yummo!" I had the Chicken Parmigiana,(this is the best, that I have ever eaten) my husband had the Chicken Fettuccine, Monkey had the Spaghetti and giant Meatballs. For a light dessert, they brought out the complimentary 3 flavored ice cream.

From Atlanta, we drove up to Braselton, to the Mayfield Dairy and got an ice cream cone. Yeah, I know, we had just had ice cream. But hey, it was my birthday!

Then we went up to Commerce, to the Tanger Outlet Mall. There is not much there, that I like to go to, but I love to go to the $5 Christian Bookstore. I bought 4 books. I can't wait to read them. I just had a "brain bubble" and I can't remember the names of the books. I guess, that is a sign of the old age, creeping in.

We went to the Lodge store. My husband bought a 5 piece cast iron kit, that I have wanted for awhile. The kit included 2 frying pans, 10 inch Dutch oven,lid and griddle.

I ran in the Dress Barn and found 2 really cute outfits. The only draw back, I was being watched and followed by a sales lady. When I turned around, she was right on my heels. I asked her if I could help her. She said,"No." Then I tried to be nice...I asked her why was she following me. Her answer (with a shocked look on her face) ," Oh, I'm not. I'm just... I'm ..Do you need help?" I laughed, I told her never mind, I'll go to the store at Discover Mills.

I'm glad I went. I found 2 different outfits, that I just loved. These were included in my birthday loot.

I just realized, that I have not downloaded my pictures from yesterday. So I'll add them tomorrow.

I am truly blessed! I have the most wonderful husband and son. They really spoil me rotten.

  2. Happy Belated Birthday!!! When you came to Commerce, you were only about 20 minutes from me!!!! However, Carissa and I have been down with the flu, so I'm sure you wouldn't have wanted to be around us. We like the Christian bookstore too. :)
