Happy Birthday To Me!

This has been a really fun and exciting week for me.  Yesterday was my birthday and I found this box sitting on the kitchen island.

Look what my sweet hubby bought me.
(Insert jumping up and down and screaming)
I was totally surprised!
 I had casually mentioned a while back all the neat stuff that the Silhouette would do.
  I never imagined he would remember this  (or that he was even really listening).
Don’t get me wrong, Steve is a good listener,  it’s just that I talk a lot…really a lot.
  He can’t possibly retain all the garbage info I am constantly throwing at him.
I also got my favorite Chocolate cake, the sweetest card and dinner
reservations for Saturday.
I came home yesterday from spending time with my friend Lynn of the blog The Vintage Nest
and found Steve had vacuumed and  mopped all the hardwood floors!  Our home has hardwood
 floors on the entire first level and it is quite a job to clean all these floors. He knows how much
I hate this chore and he decided to help out.
Definitely a keeper!
I just had to show you what a good job he did.
I also won this adorable tote bag from Peggy at  According To Braswell.  I just received the bag
and it looks like a vintage grain sack.  I love it and  thank you so much Peggy.
As if all of this isn’t enough .
This week I also received a gift I won from my dear friend Penny @ The Comforts Of Home.
See the cute enamel plaque that says Antiquities, Rue Carroll?  This was custom made for me by
Ramsign.  It looks just like the plaques you see all over Europe.
Thank you so much, Penny.
This tiered stand I have in our guestroom was a gift this week from Homegoods.
I entered a design contest held by Homegoods several months ago.  My room did not
win but out of the blue I received a gift card thanking me for my support.
It has been a wonderful and exciting week.  Thank you to my husband,  kids,  family and
friends for all your love and support.

  3. Sherry, I'm just sitting here all excited for you and your wonderful week as I read your post. I bought a Cricut at Thanksgiving and its still sitting in the box. I'm actually finally taking a class tomorrow night on how to work the dang thing. I can't wait to see what wonderful creations you will show us once you have your Silhouette up and running. Congrats on your other treasures and your clean floors too.

  4. Hi Sherry and a BIG Happy Birthday to you!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 You are just full of good news today. Your husband is very nice indeed and you can tell him we bloggers think so. Oh I would love to meet up with you and Lynn for some fun together.

    Congrats on your wins and gifts, etc.

  5. Hi Birthday Girl!
    You are on a roll with gifts and wins!!! You deserve it all on your birthday.
    I am still trying to grasp the 'husband mopped all of the hardwoods' part of your surprise day!
    I hope your day and Sat. night out is delightful.

  6. Happy Belated Birthday. Can you send Steve over to help me out, I have a long list. Well, maybe when it's my birthday. What a wonderful surprise to get the Silhouette. I've been thinking about adding one of those to my "want" list. Enjoy!

  7. Sheryy,
    Okay…I'm the first to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! You got some great gifts…sounds like he is a keeper…wonder how I can get Mr.CC to clean all our wood floors for me today:) That bag you won is so awesome…love the look of it!


  8. Happy happy (belated) birthday Sherry! Can I borrow your husband? LOL….mine tries to help out by loading and unloading the dishwasher but then I can't find where he's put anything. And he only puts about 3 things in the dishwasher but he tries!

    Hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend…

  9. Happy (belated) Birthday wishes Sherry! Your husband certainly is a keeper – how sweet and loving, and what a great gift :o)
    You've certainly been lucky winning those lovely prizes too. Hope your week continues to be great!
    My very best wishes

  10. Happy BIrthday Sherry!!
    Love your new goodies.. especially the silhoutte.. (I'm sure I just spelled that wrong) but that's because I only have a Cricut Cutter.

    Have you ever noticed how similar our kitchens look?

  11. Happy Birthday Sherry!!

  12. Hi Sherry! Happy Birthday!! What a wonderful husband you have. Lots of love went into those efforts. You have a husband that pays attention–
    a rare gift among men. Hope you celebrate all week long!

  13. Awwww what a sweet hubby! Clean floors AND the perfect gift?! He certainly has your number *winks* And you had a wonderful week for extra gifts as well! Love the grain sack bag! Hope you have a wonderful dinner out! Vanna

  14. Well, first off, Happy Birthday!!!!! Secondly, Congratulations – not only for receiving such a great bday gift from your hubby, but for training him to pay attention ;). I hope you have tons of fun with your new toy!


  15. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY SHERRY!!! Yesterday was my birthday too! It sounds like we both had a wonderful day! You really have some wonderful new prizes and Steve sounds like the best one of all! xoxo

  16. Please tell me that you are dead tired of your husband and looking for a new home for him….doya suppose my hubby would mind if he moved in?;>)

    Happy Happy birthday! I'd say that you are well-loved! I'd say the biggest testimony to that is the hardwood floor caper. God bless a man that will do THAT! Hugs- Diana

  17. Yeah, you suck. (spoken from someone who is COMPLETELY JEALOUS) 🙂

    Happy Birthday! What a great gift, and yay for hubby listening and helping out. Hope it was a wonderful day! And I just saw that you're at exactly 1000 followers, go you!

  18. Oh, Happy Happy Birthday Sherry! What a fun week you have had with all of those wonderful gifts and treasures…including that treasure of a husband it sounds like you have! 🙂
    Thanks so much for linking up to Inspiration Friday!

  19. Happy Birthday Sherry! I'm with the rest of the group, the floors alone would have been a fabulous gift!! Enjoy all of your treasures.

  20. Happy Belated Birthday Sherry! I would say you have had a wonderful birthday week so far. What great gifts you have received.

    Enjoy your day,

  21. Happy belated birthday Sherry – mine is today and I've had a great week too! I got to go to Canton yesterday – check out the pics I took at LaurieAnna's!

  22. Happy birthday. What a great gift to give yourself. I have been on the fence about this little lovely. I am a Mac user and until recently the Silhouette has not been Mac friendly. I will be stalking you now for a bit asking you questions about it like ease of set up, what to buy to go with it, what you intend to do with it, etc. I will give you a week or so to play first but I will be back…. 🙂
    Cheers to another year,
    Pam @ BeColorful

  24. Happy belated birthday Sherry! Love your gifts from your husband. Especially the cleaning of the hard wood floors! We have them in our kitchen/dining and know the work that goes into cleaning them. How amazing your husband is to do that for you. The tote is just lovely too!

  25. Oh my so many wonderful treasures but more importantly I am so happy you had such a wonderful day. May it also be a beautiful year!
