"Wrapping" up my Birthday!

Good Morning!
I only have a few minutes to write because I need to get to the Post Office before it closes to mail Deb's package. I just wanted to tell you that this has been a week long celebration for me. I didn't mention this before but my darling David's birthday was yesterday so between the two of us, we partied all week. Look at all the wonderfulness in this photo!

On Tuesday, at work, we had cupcakes and this surprise....

Now who wouldn't like a topiary made with Hershey's kisses? (Thanks Holly!)
Mimi and Michele took me to lunch on Wednesday to one of my favorite places, Panera, where I had this yumminess! (talk about carb-loading! Do you think I should have hidden the butter at least?)

Mimi treated us to iced shortbread cookies for dessert...
(I forgot about taking a picture until I had already eaten a few bites! Where are pictures of the 3 of us you ask? We were too busy talking and having fun that after we had eaten, I never took my camera out again!)
There were handmade gifts from friends...

Thanks Mimi and Michele!
Handmade cards....

Thanks Bev, Laurie, Elizabeth, Mimi!
A new Boyd's bear from my sweet grandson, Charlie...

(Note: the Allsorts (from Mimi) were photographed after the bag was half eaten..
I had to do some fluffing up for this picture-LOL!)
More gifts and cards.....

Thanks Pam!
David surprised me with a gift certificate from my favorite on-line stamp company, PAPERTREYink...

What a great week! Thank you for sending your comments, your friendship and your blogging love!
I've had a lot of fun this week and I can only conclude that...

I hope the sun is shining where you are (it is surprisingly pleasant in Pittsburgh today!)
Have a great weekend!

I think all birthdays should be celebrated for a week!! Lots of heart warming gifts and cards.
Rain here :(
Can't wait for the awesome gifts to arrive! THANK YOU!!

Yes, a week long birthday celebration is what we all deserve. Your gifts and the time spent with your dear friends is just the icing on the cake. Happy belated birthday!

Definitely a whole lot of wonderfulness! The cupcake card is so cute and I love the things you have the cards hanging on ~ especially the white wire easel holding the birds. Nice idea ~ it looks great!
Thanks for sharing the link to PAPERTREYinc...I've off to check them out.

Happy Birthday to David!
