mud pie, and being surrounded by loved ones have in common? Well that would be a birthday! MINE! I was serenaded twice on the phone (too cute) and got to go shopping with my dd (always time well spent).
And I didn't even have to cook my own birthday dinner, even though my poor husband is suffering from a sinus infection.
He brought home dinner from one of our favorite restaurants and we got to sit outside to enjoy this beautiful weather!
And I even had time to dye some new ribbon that will soon be in my etsy shop.
It was a great day all around......hope yours was wonderful too!
