My birthday celebrations kicked off a week early with the June birthday luncheon at work. The whole department gets together once a month and celebrates all those with birthdays. For June we went to one of my favorite places, La Carreta. I got my usual, "Flaunta Special" and spent a wonderful two hours chatting with co-workers. Once back at work, we celebrated with cake. Love me some strawberry cake!
After a long week at work and teaching summer dance classes, it was good to have a half day on friday. I enjoyed an afternoon of scrapbooking! Way too many layouts to post here, but i do post all in Studio Calico's member gallery: http://www.studiocalico.com/users/agtsnowflake. Also have a new addition to the scrap room. I like to enjoy my layouts before i file them in their permanent Photo Freedom albums. I hung a basic drapery rod on the wall and using binder rings and page protectors turned sideways, I can display 5 at a time.
Saturday's celebration kicked off with a FORMAL lunch with the family.My mother and sister cooked all morning. On the menu was Crab-topped catfish, butter potatoes, green bean casserole and Jungle Juice. To stay with the healthy theme, instead of a traditional birthday cake, I was given an Edible Arrangement filled with fruit. Best Birthday Cake Ever!
After lunch followed "present time". Even at 30 (wow that was hard to type), I still get all giddy on my birthday. I ended up with all kinds of goodies; money, a double hammock for my back porch and a sewing machine.
My official birthday concluded with a night of scrapping with Izzy. Perfect end to perfect birthday!
