I had a wonderful birthday on October 1! My family really did a wonderful job of gifting me with lovely presents. I was worried that the day would be a bust when I started getting sick the day before. I was running a low grade fever a few times during the festivities but enjoyed the low key celebration that my family provided for me while I was not in a super healthy state. Mark worked from home in the morning and I slept late. We went as a family to Macaroni Grill for an early lunch. The food was perfect. I had my own creation of capellini, pesto, garlic,sun dried tomatoes and asparagus. It was delicious.
Madeline gave me one of our favorite movies of all time If a Man Answers with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin. It is a precious Mother/Daughter film. The clothes are fabulous! Maddy also gave me a custom card that she handmade just for the occasion, with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin on the front.
Harrison in his practical, thoughtful way, gifted me with a PINK eyelash curler with its own Pink floral bag. I love all things pink and when they are practical, it makes them even better! A few years ago he got me a heated eyelash curler which was wonderful, but it eventually broke from use. This one is so deluxe and feels great when you use it. I have the curliest eyelashes on the planet!
Mark outdid himself with the Kate Spade trench coat!!! I love it and Madeline has already claimed it when I die. I can’t wait for a cooler day so I can wear this beautiful coat. It is silk, so it is lightweight for Texas weather. I think that 60 degrees would be cool enough for me to wear it out shopping or on a date with my sweetie. I hope you don’t get tired of seeing me in this jacket because it is going to be my favorite for a long time. I thought I could even wear it as a bathrobe!
I also received gifts of money from my mother and dad and my mother in law. I used the cash to fuel my Kate Spade addiction and purchased a dress and skirt to add to my wardrobe. Overall it was a lovely, lovely day!
