I Turned 50....

with Grace...I think.

I was spoiled at work and at home....  The Birthday lasted throughout the weekend.

The day started with...

My favorite cinnamon rolls.  The rule at my office is that when it's your birthday-- you bring the treats.  I brought cinnamon rolls, only after Don and I sampled them.

The office had pictures of me 29 years earlier.  Yep - Don and Chelsey had sent photos of me at 21 years old. They were on the doors the walls, the desks.

I had balloons surrounding my desk and a bouquet of prunes.

Don took me to Green Bay for shopping.  He took me to Primitive Gatherings for:

It's my new favorite mug--- it's never empty...
and this  baby doll tee ---

Meals cooked for me, birthday cake, tons of cards, emails and phone calls.  I was queen for a weekend.

I've been quilting - just never  sat down long enough to type.

More later ---I have to save something to type about tomorrow.
