A Birthday Story...Pink, Of Course

There are a few traditions in this family when it comes to Birthdays.
We spend them together and not necessarily with a bunch of people.
We decorate!!! Boy, do we decorate.

Usually the night before so they wake up to a house full of decorations.

We usually have a theme. We ALWAYS have cake;)

Breakfast in bed...or at least lounging on the sofa!

One of my all-time favorites...strawberries on toast...with a side of good n plentys;) And a cute puppy helps too!

The celebration lasts all day...and sometimes all week...or month;)

We always have lots of presents to open. Not that we overspend...we just
Wrap everything separately so there is lots to open.

Guess what? This week it was my turn to be the Birthday Girl.
In addition to a pre-Birthday dinner and a week full of festivities,
I awoke to an amazing Birthday celebration last Monday.

There was ribbon, cherubs, tutus, flowers...a perfect blend of PINK, shabby and very chic.

My girls did good, let me tell you! My husband was out of town so it was up to them...and they made my day sooooo special!

They went shopping the week before...and what shoppers!
A necklace and charm bracelet from Brighton, beautiful belt and gift card from White house/Black Market, Body butter from Victoria Secret, Starbucks card, cute stuffed turtle (family memory), a tai chi DVD for me (doctor 's order) and more goodies too, from them and others:)

They made me a special card...little notes tucked in a pretty pink box, nestled among a bunch of tiny messages just for me. I loved it!,,

I am SOOOO blessed! Thank you for a wonderful day girlfriends!
And I hope all of you liked my pink treats!
Happy Pink Saturday and thank you to Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for graciously hosting all of us pinkies again!
