33rd Birthday

Well, I have to say that I had a wonderful birthday. Thanks to all of my fabulous friends that called, texted, and emailed their birthday wishes!

My birthday consisted of the following:
Lunch at Maggiano's, which is my favorite place to eat. Then, Mike surprised me with a tour at the Big Cat Rescue. It was so great. It was so nice to see the cats and hear the big guys purr!(picture probably Monday) They had yarn in their gift shop!!! I couldn't believe is Camel Wool and the proceeds go to the White Leopard Rescue in Mongolia, so of course, I bought some. My birthday present is a gift certificate to a spa day anytime I want. Isn't that the best?

It was a wonderful birthday! I am truly blessed!

Life & Stash Updates

I finished my first half marathon on Sunday! Did it in 04:05:24!! Very happy but sore!

Bought some new yarn last night at Uncommon Threads. A very yummy green Malabrigo. And some blue/green sock yarns. Have a thing for the greens. Also some redish-purple roving that I fell in love with....even though I do not spin. I think it is ok to buy yarn just to pet...right? Here is the picture with all the yarn still in the bag -- I have already put it into ziplocks!

Mike and I are still trying to figure out what we are doing for our honeymoon this year. Too many decisions and we are trying to be responsible with our savings account. Not too sure these work well together.

Looking forward to Knit Club tonight! Still working on the 2nd DAMN MONKEY!!!
