Hi. I love October. Its finally cooling down, under 100 anyway, and the mornings and nights are so nice. I love Halloween. To me its the official start to kick off the holiday season. I always seem to have so much fun stuff to do in October. So many of my friends and family have birthdays in October. Including me:) It has been alot of fun. My friends and family are awesome. Its been alot of celebrating for a week and a half now. My BFF Johnsie(can we say that when we are over 50?) took my to my favorite Asian restuarant and gave me this beautiful Brighton bracelet. I love it and it is perfect. My Sister and my other BFF Kathy (I have alot of BFF's, thats the good part about being over 50) took me to a ceramic painting studio and I painted this rose cupcake. The cake on the plate in the background was from a previous trip. We had cupcakes from the Cake Cafe. Kathy gave me an adorable kitty tote bag and this adorable Boyds collectable box that has a tiny bear holding a cupcake. Today my other BFF's Mark and Judy took me to eat at Joes Barbque. (If you are in the phoenix/gilbert area; you have to go there!!) But it was kind of a suprise party. Both of my daughters and my son-in-law, grandkids and my other BFF Pat came too. Great dinner, great company and a great hook up with Joanns gift cards:) So, its been an awesome birthday week.
My studio re-do is coming along. Very slowly, but surely. I will have pictures soon, but I did receive the most awesome gift in the mail from one of my blogging BFF's. Francie saw my post about how my theme for my new studio is a french bakery theme and sent me this adorable cake. You can also visit Francie at http://www.thescentedcottage.com/ . I hope you all have a great week and get to spend time with your BFF's.
