Stacy made this blanket for Connie for her birthday. The three of us and Catherine went to Detroit last November. The fabric for this blanket was purchased there. It suited Connie's ducky LID countdown.
You can tell we're bloggers because of all the camera flash. All five of us were literally taking photos of each other at the same time. This is Sam and Robin but you can see Connie and me in the reflection. Well, you can see my camera flash and my arm. What a bunch of dorks we are....
Since Connie and I were celebrating our birthdays, Stacy brought us a cake. Isn't this cute? I think that's Jadyn and Mia depicted there in the frosting. We actually ended up with three chocolate cakes! I think we may have a bit of a problem with chocolate.
I got a few birthday gifts as well. This is from Connie. Cute candle thingy that is now living in the computer room.
A bib from Stacy for my daughter. I love the comment on it. It certainly fits cuz if Mia is anything like her Momma she'll be a smart ass, too. She made this gorgeous hat for Mia. I'm so not creative with things like this that I actually said "This is called knitting, right?" Uh yeah... genius!
A beautious scented candle from Sam. I love candles. I'm always burning them so my house smells purdy.
We had a fabulous time gabbing, trading stories, looking at Sam's China photos, and gorging on all the delish food and drink. We learned that in China they serve a lot of the meat dishes with the head of the animal still attached. This seemed to disgust Connie. In fact, she insisted that nothing with a head was going into her mouth. But we knew better....wink wink, Candy! Of course now she won't be able to travel carry-on-only since she'll need a suitcase full of Power Bars to keep her from starving over there.
Sam and Robin drove back home late that night. Stacy hung out until about 3am. Then Connie and I stayed up talking about them until 5am. Just kidding girls! It was a blast and I can't wait to hang out with all of you cool people again soon. To check out some more pics of the fun click here , here and here.
