Birthday

Today is my birthday.

A few days ago I picked out of the closet somethings I've won this past year. I set them out on Daddy's day off and said, "Here are my presents, wrap them." I'm not the kind of wife the expects my husband to buy me expensive things. He's not that kind of husband with me either. I have to say he's done well, remember he knows how to design and make high end jewelry you can find here.

The crazy thing is, is I don't remember exactly what I got. I won a $50 GC to Novica from My Baby's Green. Novica wrapped the earrings up. I don't remember exactly what they looked like. I know they are pearl cluster earrings and look something like this:

Pearls are my alternative birthstone. Alexandrite is pretty darn expensive!

I grew up thinking that the 21st was always the first day of summer. Yesterday I learned that it depends on the sun, whatever that means. The 20th can be the first day of summer as well. Happy first day of summer to everyone out there.

I'm also between a Gemini and Cancer. My husband says I carry more Cancer traits. I don't really follow that stuff though.

On my Sing, Sing a Song Saturday I'm going to post the most popular songs of June 21, 1976. 

I also got a shirt from there. That to I don't remember. I looked at it when it came to me and packed it back up. I looked a lot of their shirts, so it could of been any one of them. I just remember that I liked it a lot. It reminded me of something that my Step Grandma from the Philippines would have picked out. Only this is the right size. She used to get us stuff that was the wrong size all the time.

I want to say it was this shirt, but I could totally be wrong. Surprise to me!

Then I won almost a year ago a GC from what blog, I have no clue a lunchboxes.com GC. I picked out this:

Are you a gift stasher like I am? LOL

We're eating dinner at my parents (Grandma and Grandpa Spiehs's) house tonight. Emerson's 1 year birthday party is this weekend. Then next weekend we're celebrating Father's Day and my birthday at a lake or park. My Dad likes the outdoors and I didn't want anyone dealing with the mess and hassle of cooking and cleaning. Everyone is bringing their own picnic food, subway or Panera Bread. Panera sounds good to me!

I made a Chocolate Moose Pie for work. We bring our own birthday treats. I had an extra bought pie crust left over from Father's Day. I wanted to bring something easy.

I have to say at work I want to hang myself today (not literally)! My one and only summer school student forgot her portfolio; she left it at her parent's house. Go figure, the class is called Portfolio Development. There's a reason why she didn't pass the class the first time. Then I just found out that I'm supposed to talk to a bunch of high school teachers tomorrow. All the things I knew I was to talk about, except for one topic. It's supposed to last an hour! EKKK! Luckily it's over something I'm very familiar with. I didn't even know the order in which we were supposed to talk about what things. I had to ask. That will take over my entire afternoon.

Today I do want

Yum! Happy belated birthday! I bet your co-workers loved that your brought a chocolate mousse (I need recipe) for your birthday.

I am a gift stasher for sure! I save a lot of things that I get that I either don't want, need right then or that I got a great deal on and then when I need a gift I just go in the closet that they are all housed in and "shop" for the receiver. Sometimes that receiver is me :)
