I'm Home!

Yes, I am finally home! We had a great time in San Diego but I am glad to be back home and ready to tackle everything I left on hold two weeks ago! Of course, I have no pictures for you yet. I can't even find my camera in this mess of luggage.

I used my new Field Bag on the airplane and it tickled me everytime someone stared (and they all stared)! I don't think they were admiring my fine workmanship or even the gorgeous fabric. I believe they all were wondering if I had stowed a small body in there but I didn't care. I was fabulous!

The Big Blue Hat got a workout as well. I am about ten shades darker than when I left. I was so pale that my skin actually had a green tinge to it. I am now healthy looking minus the red skin on my legs. That was from the last day of "I'm leaving tomorrow so I better get one last sunning session". Yep, I was a little too ambitious. I even turned down a shopping trip to get a few more rays. Can you blame me? Here in TX, if you step outside you burst into flames. And don't give me "at least it's a dry heat". Dry, humid, it's still 106!! That's just too hot. So we got outside and cut down the small forest that we call our yard, promptly both got headaches and now we won't be leaving the house the rest of the day for fear that they'll have to come sweep up our ashes on the front sidewalk.

Oh, it was my birthday too! I haven't had anyone make a big deal about my birthday in a while so I decided I was going to this year. I commisioned a fantastic cake to look like one of my favorite Amy Butler fabrics. Pictures to come soon, I promise, as soon as I find that blasted camera! It was GORGEOUS and DELICIOUS and I hate that I left the remainder of it in my Mom's fridge but I hope they EAT IT and don't throw it out! It wasn't cheap but it was worth every penny. My whole family made it over and we swam, had cocktails, ate a lot and they even humored me with the worst rendition of Happy Birthday ever. I don't think they enjoyed it but they did it none the less. The cake had no candles. I was told it would have been a fire hazard. Rude.

My husband surprised me by shipping in a jennjohn handbag. I've blogged about Jenn before. I've been wanting one of her bags for a while so now I have one! It is beautiful, of course. He opted for a bag that did not have Amy Butler but has Carla Miller fabric. It's beautiful! Again, once the camera shows itself, I'll post pictures. A big thanks to Jenn! I'll email you as soon as this headache goes away!

Well, I have a ton of stuff to do but honestly, I think I am going to go freeze my head for a while. I'll post my pictures later so check back soon!

Joy, I didn't even know I was making a bag for you until a couple days before it shipped when your mom inquired about it's ETA...NO Amy Butler fabrics...? I was confused. Glad you LOVE it!! Jenn
