My Special Birthday! Pink Saturday
Welcome to Pink Saturday!
You may remember last week I wrote about how excited I was that it was my birthday and my family was planning a special day for me! Today I want to tell you all about it!
It started out with a really relaxing morning. My kids and husband hung out with me in the living room and played video games (something they hardly ever get to do anymore!) while I visited other pink bloggers for Pink Saturday. After lunch, my husband took the five older kids out shopping while I put the babies to bed and took a nap myself! When they got home, the party began!
Jamie started up the grill and served BBQ cheeseburgers, chips and sweet tea. Mmmm!!
After we were finished, everyone worked together to clean up while I went and got myself fixed up. When I came out, they had my table all set up with presents!!
There was music,
There was even cake!!
One of my favorite gifts was this beautiful tea set from my husband!
He started my collection on our first Christmas together in 1998! Here's everything set up pretty for a little evening snack!
I even made some cookies!
I love the gorgeous rose design. It's called "Rose Bouque" and is part of the Gracie Bone China collection.
My mom also sent a special package with two embroidered tea towels. I love them! Here is one, a beautiful and sunny yellow, displayed with the set of vintage Pyrex bowls she gave me this past summer.
This one is a pretty pink and brown (my favorite color combination of the moment!) and has a lovely saying about mothers:
Thank you to my loving husband and sweet children and mom who made this such a special day!
Grab a snack and relax with some other Pink Saturday bloggers today! Have wonderful Saturday!
