THE birthday surprise

I think it is fair to assume that EVERYONE IN MY LIFE
knew that I was getting a Mac Book Pro =)
and also fair to assume that many of you contributed to the gift.
Thank you. I love it.
Loki helping and me, thrilled with my new gift!

And I like it even more because I know that so many people were a part of giving it.
I think that makes it even better than if it were just from Christopher.
On that note, don't I just have the greatest husband?!!!!!?
A huge thank you to all our generous family and friends -- I certainly feel loved
We had a wonderful weekend in Minnesota. Hung out in Hastings part of the time and spent some time with my family and dear friends. My mom knows how to put on one great party!
My good friend even drove from central WI with her infant all by herself ... a wonderful surprise.
My brother gave me a self healing mat/ruler/rotary cutter -- that may not mean much of anything to you but I am super excited to use it to cut fabric. (I fail to cut straight lines with a scissors.)

Oh, and Babies, did I mention that there were lots of babies? ... four of them in various size, shapes and development.

so fun!

We rounded out the weekend with a game of Ticket to Ride on my in-laws table Sunday evening,
a trip to Kohl's an McDonald's with Christopher's sister
and a Cheap Charlie's breakfast Monday morning.
I think it is incredibly awesome that we had ten friends for breakfast at a local greasy spoon place
on a Monday morning
(does anyone work a "normal" job? umm ... pretty much no)

So now if you'll excuse me (I'll post a gratitude post later in the week) but right now I'm going to drink my tea and organize my itunes library or play some angry birds, let's be honest.

And in case I didn't say it -- Thank you!
