The great birthday cake Jenny made for me!

Yesterday as you all know from my previous post was my birthday. Jenny, my youngest daughter was spending the day with me today! She arrived at 10 a.m. just like she said she would and she presented me with this really cute knitting birthday cake she made for me!! Love you Jen-what a wonderful job you did-I love it!!





We had alot of fun today. We stayed in Charlotte but did we get around. We first went to a store uptown called The Beadlush (great name!). We then proceeded to a bead store called On a String. After we left there we drove just down the road a little bit and we met John for lunch at a place called Fenwick's on Providence Road. John headed on home after lunch to do his thing. Jenny and I continued on our merry way! We went to an antique mall called the Sleepy Poet! What a wonderful place!! So many antiques and vintage style items. We were half way through there when Megan (my oldest daughter) sent us an e-mail that at 3:00 we were suppose to meet her for pedicures! We raced to the other side of Charlotte and went into Union County to the town where Megan lives, which is Indian Trail. The pedicure was heaven-thanks Megan for such a wonderful gift. I had my toenails painted with OPI's Your Villa or Mine! It is a really pretty pearlescent coral color-wonderful for summer! Then Jenny and I left the spa, said goodbye to Megan and drove to my house. I made Jenny 2 pairs or earrings and a bracelet before she had to leave and go home. We had a spectacular day!! Here's 2 pictures of Jenny before we left on our wonderful day!




I love birthdays!! Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
