My 27th Birthday, In Review

Wednesday was my 27th birthday! As usual, I was pretty well spoiled - except for the fact that I had to work and had a crrrrrrrazy day running around all over and back and forth between the hospitals. But it did end on a sweet note with dinner at a fancy steakhouse with the girls from work and an ice cream cake waiting on my seat of the car when Pat picked me up from the station. Yum!

I was also spoiled with gifts from my family. My mom sent my birthday package in the mail and I picked it up from the post office last Sunday. Inside, there were four gifts from my parents: one for each day until my birthday! There was also a gift from my younger brother and his girlfriend. Yesterday, I picked up another package at the post office - this time from my older brother and sister-in-law. Not to mention the cards from my gramma and aunts. So sweet!

Anyway, here's a small selection of the gifts I unwrapped this week.
Silver bird measuring spoons and owl candle holder from John and Emilie.

A beautiful watch from Pat - who even surprised me by having it ready for my birthday morning - and which I opened seconds after:
A beautiful watch from mom! You should have seen poor Pat's face! I felt so bad (even though I warned him about my list and told him to run his gift by my mom). I debated over them for a few days and finally decided to keep both. I think they're different enough to both get lots of wear.

Pewter bunny and Willow Tree figurine (Surrounded by Love) from mom (the one orange flowers). The one with the blue flowers (Forget-me-not) is from Matt and Terri-Anne. A perfect match and lovely additions to my Willow Tree collection - I almost have all the flower ones now!

Mini honey pot from Matt and Terri-Anne.

How lucky am I? And that's only about half of it! I love my birthday!

Love those little measuring spoons!! Just too cute! Be sure to store them somewhere where they can be displayed too - just too cute to hide in a drawer.
