It was my birthday

This is like the third time I have tried to get this blog written.  I don't know what is up with my fingers or my computer, but I keep erasing myself.  Anyway Good Morning my friends..Yesterday was my birthday..however we knew that Rich (husband) wouldn't be home on the weekend.  That is the life of a railroader.  So he took me out on his days off.  We went to the Outback..my favorite place. Had a good dinner..AND...he gave me these. The earrings are mother of pearl..cause I really like mother of pearl stuff...and the bracelet is amesthyst (spelling is probably not right).  Both are set in silver..they are beautiful.   Then on Friday my youngest daughter and her husband took us out for dinner at a local Mexican place.  Chimichanga..love the beef ones..for me...had a good time.  And then on Saturday..look what arrived in the mail!!!  Two sets!!  They were sent to me by someone..I have to keep who they are a secret..anyway I get to keep them if I just review them on my blog!! So it was like so cool..so look for a review in the next few days...cause I definately want to keep them.  And then I see that I am a winner at https://bellacrochet.blogspot.com.  I won her newest design which are baby booties..but I also got to pick another pattern..I have alot of her patterns, but anyway I picked the teatime set.  I spent my "real" birthday alone..but that was ok as I was playing with the new hooks, watched the Walking Dead..I know I am weird, took Buddy on a walk..had a very nice time with myself.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my blog.  I hope you all have a great week..I may be back with a review of the hooks later in the week...I am still destashing..so the giveaway will be happening !!!! Blessings my friends.

Happy Belated Birthday!! I did miss this post. :o( You had a great not-on-the-day birthday!! I can't wear earrings, allergic to them, but love yours. And the bracelet is beautiful. Best of all is the hooks. I wouldn't mind owning a set of those. I wondered how they would work. Thanks for letting us know. :o)
