So Yesterday was my 36th Birthday!
I had such a wonderful day. It started off with my boy's serving me breakfast in bed, along with flowers and handmade cards.
Then I went out shopping with my wonderful Mother in Law.
We went to my favorite store. . .The Goodwill!
My good friend called me while I was out shopping, and she was laughing that the Goodwill is where I wanted to go for my Birthday. :)
But look at what I found...
It's a big white enamel pot that has a built in strainer. This is going to be so great to cook pasta and veggies in. I can't wait to use it. Isn't it so neat?
I know, I'm funny and get excited over every day things.
Then in the evening my husband made me the most delicious dinner ever.
We watched the Birthday video he made me a couple years back, and then just for fun we watched the video I made him for his big 40th birthday. It was so fun to see our lives back to back and where they meet up. I just love him, he's the best hubby ever!
And then we ate chocolate cake!
OK. So my mother in law came to dinner too and brought presents!!
Which I already knew all about because I picked them all out myself :)
We go shopping together a lot, and have way too much fun.
So I picked these dishes out at Big Lots of all places, and love them. They feel very nautical to me.
Then I fell in love with these hand towels at Home Goods.
I want to bring in some yellow accents to my kitchen.
And then she gave me Two Rugs to choose from (which I also picked out)
They are from Big Lots too.
I liked them both, but wanted to see which one looked better in my living room.
She had them wrapped SO cute with big yellow bows and yellow Daisy's.
Yes, I know she likes to spoil me :)
So Here is the first Rug:
It is actually made of denim!
I think it looks good, It matches the throw pillows perfectly, but I may want to re-paint the fireplace... which is a really easy fix.
It may be a little too small for the space.
And here is the Second rug:
It is actually an indoor/outdoor rug so it should hold up well.
I like that it is bigger, and I like how it has more tan in it, so it is not too overwhelming of a pattern.
However, I think either way I will need to re-paint the fireplace in a color that will flow better. But like I mentioned before it took only a small sample of paint and about 10 minutes.... so no big deal.
The boy's liked this one better.
But I want to know which one you all like best
Thanks for your help!
Also, I just wanted to say thank you to all of my family and friends who helped make my birthday so special. I'm very blessed to have such wonderful people in my life, including all of you, my wonderful readers.
Thanks for stopping by,
P.S. My Hubby also gave me a gift card to Ikea..... I'm so lucky! I'll be back to share my wish list with you all another time.
