Thanks Mom!

In the below post, my mom commented asking whether I'd received a special package yet. I didn't think so and then went to bed for the night. But about five minutes later as I was starting to drift off to sleep, I sat straight up and remembered that I'd heard a delivery truck earlier in the afternoon.

Okay... I confess... I'd been napping and didn't answer the door.

So I went and checked the porch. Sure enough.
This is what I found!
Unfortunately, I dropped my camera a few days ago and killed it. So you have to rely on the stock photo. But it came beautifully packaged in a fancy red box. I almost didn't want to open it, it was so pretty. But, of course, I did.

It's perfect. Because my mom gave it to me... her oldest daughter. And I'll wear it for my daughter. Kinda full circle.

My first birthday present for my 36th year.
Thanks Mom! I absolutely love it!

I'm so glad you found it before your birthday...I wanted it to be the first thing you got. And I wsnted you to know that even though I am on the road ALL THE TIME and have very little off time I didn't forget.

And the full circle idea was exactly what I was thinking when I saw it. Love ya...Happy Birthday...but did you have to tell that you're 36, now I really feel antique!!!

Happy Birthday Krista!!! All special people are born in February!! (Mine's in 11 days, ya know!) The necklace is perfect. What a great gift. Your mom did good. BTW...I'm also excited BB is on again...what about those hook ups last night? Ryan is a litle upset he's not paired with Jen...hope their relationship can take it. I'm rooting for them since they are our little Ohio couple. And, Survivor is always a "must see" TV. Have you watched Paradise Hotel yet? It's a reality show that was on 5 years ago and it's back again on Monday nights. It's been on for 2 weeks already. I watch Celebrity Re-hab, too. I tell ya...I'm such a reality TV junkie but I do miss Grey's Anatomy and Two and a Half Men. Have a wonderful day!!

I rarely ever wear jewelry (I hate it), but guess what necklace I'm wearing today? Yep -- you guessed it. The Tongginator said, when she noticed, "Momma, you're wearing jewelry. I love your pretty necklace." Here's praying your daughter will love your necklace just as much. :) Happy Birthday!
