Happy Birthday

Well, unlike everyone else I have been looking forward to my 30th Birthday forever! It came at just the perfect time.....the Friday before Spring Break. My daughter and husband made sure that I had awesome gifts and breakfast in bed. Then my friends at school bought me lunch and my kids were so loving on this special day. I can't count the pictures they drew for me. I also have the best home room mom. She secretly got together and put balloons in my room and had the kids make a great shirt for me. They each drew a picture and signed their names. Then she transferred them onto a T-Shirt. How Thoughtful!!! Then that night my husband surprised me with dinner at the Melting Pot! I had never been there and soooooo loved it! We ended the evening by sitting by the fire at the Riverwalk. I love that everyone made this day so special. Then that next day my parents took care of me by taking me to my favorite place to eat unhealthy food! It's a place where I grew up and they have the best Hot Hamburgers.

Well, I'm not sure if you know but our family just moved and so many people have been wanting to come see the house. So, what other way to do that than to throw a party !!!! We invited some friends and had homemade ice cream and cupcakes!!! YUM!

This ice cream was so great! We made a gallon and a half. Then we had toppings to choose from. You know I just wanted to be like Cherry Berry! And yes it was a success!

My new favorite frosting! They actually come out looking decent! Watch out Cake Boss!

I am so excited to be seeing all of the blessings in my life. Now that I'm 30 I am an adult!!! These are going to be some of the best years of my life!!! It just keeps getting better and better!

One of my happiest moments...A SALE!

Well, it's been awhile since I have blogged. Well, Life has been great just super busy. But this deal has to be shared! I got several Hobby Lobby gift cards for my birthday and Valentine's so Necia and I went looking today. I had in mind a few things that I needed. If you don't know we just moved so all I can think about is decor!!! So, after walking down every and I'm not kidding every aisle. I noticed that one part of the store was having a HUGE clearance. I was so excited that I found 2of the projects that I had been looking for and an extra bonus!

So, first I have been looking for a huge frame to hang above my couch and then place different frames..candle holders..plaques..and so much more inside it. Well, I found in the clearance aisle a huge mirror that was broken. Well, to my luck, I don't need the mirror so the frame was perfect. It was only 59.99. It was really big so I decided to go home and get my hubby for help.

So trip #2 to Hobby Lobby
We walked in and to my surprise the mirror was reduced to 29.99. I know it was unbelievable. Then of course I had to look a little more because I was saving so much money. And yes!!!! I found more!

I had been wanting a really elaborate frame to make into a chalk board for my menu board in the kitchen. And yes....I found one 90% off!

And right behind the frame was candle holders and pottery that was also 90% off. So, of course for 2.50 each I could not resist!!! So, here are my Fabulous Find for under $55.00
