The cat in the (birthday) hat ... AND a birthday GIVE AWAY !!!!
Yesterday (Nov. 14th) was my birthday ! It was also Daisy's birthday (Daisy is my little stray kitty -- she showed up on the construction site of our house about 3 years ago -- the carpenters started feeding her and she decided to move in! Anyhow, since she's a stray and I didn't know when her real birthday is, I decided to share mine with her.) So, we started the celebration with our birthday treats -- a little cake, a little Fancy Feast kitty food. Then, of course, there has to be a birthday crown/hat. (I don't think Daisy's much of a hat person...... but Evan didn't mind modeling the little pink birthday crown .... actually, when he's playing a computer game, he's pretty oblivious to his surroundings, so I don't think he even knew I put that crown on him !)
Anyway, as one of my sister's friends insists ..... there always has to be ACTIVITIES and PRIZES for birthdays!! (Daisy likes to combine her activities and prizes --- her activity is playing with her new kitty toys -- her "prizes"). My birthday ACTIVITY was popping in to my friend Kelly's quilt shop,The Quiltery and picking out some fun PRIZES for me and........ for YOU !!! (YES !! In honor of Daisy's and my birthday, I'm having a GIVE AWAY !!!!) I also went shopping at a few other stores to fill up the goody bags --- I pretty much went along saying "one for me, one for you, one for me, one for you....... There's a Gooseberry Patch cookbook "More Gifts for Giving", some fat quarters of beautiful fabric, a pack of colored pencils , a Godiva milk chocolate bar (hang on a second while I wipe up my drool), and I just had to include that Santa Pez !!!! (don't you just love Pez in a cool Pez dispenser?!? What a HOOT!!) Soooooo......Here's how you can all participate in my "Birthday Activities and Prizes "celebration ----- your "Activity" is to leave a comment --- and Daisy will do a random drawing on Tuesday Nov. 20th (in the evening) -- and the lucky winner will get the "Prizes" !!!!
OK -- now I'm going to go tear into that Godiva bar (mine, not yours !!!) Don't forget to leave a comment!! GOOD LUCK !!!
(P.S. oh, by the way .... just because it was my birthday it doesn't mean I'm getting older --- I'm still just 29 ........ again !!!!!)
