Yesterday...

From start to finish, yesterday was an amazing day...from my students treating me like I was "queen for a day", my kids making me homemade cards, to my hubby...the sweetest man ever...spoiling me, it will definitely go down as the best birthday ever.

I absolutely love my group of students this year. Luck gave me such a caring, smart, creative group of kids, and yesterday they went all out and planned a little surprise birthday party for me complete with decorations and cupcakes! I felt completely overwhelmed when I opened a gift from them and found a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble and a $50 card to Hobby Lobby! So generous...I decided to go to Hobby Lobby right after work to satisfy my obsessive desire to be creative...had to share what I bought...=)

Love anything that says "FAMILY"...I had been eyeing these blocks for awhile.

Remember the big chalkboard I want to make? I decided to try a small version first, and I love the way it turned out!

When I walked in the door yesterday, this is what was waiting for me...precious...


It was a great day....

Happy 29th Birthday! =)

Ummm...my students got me stuffed animals from the bottom of their closets and little G.I. Joe men so with you getting 2 gift cards makes me a little jealous! Yes, I still have the used stuffed animals and toys. I couldn't help but keep them.

Love the new decorations! Good job little miss crafty! (Oh..yet another reason to be jealous of you!) I know...I have issues.

Happy Birtday!
So very sweet of your students to acknowledge your day and what nice gift cards as well.
Love the new things you got for the house also...cute little chalkboard.
