Birthday Weekend Fun

Look!!! My "Bust" family has expanded..."brother" has joined us. I found him Thursday after my 4 hours at HQ. There were other monthly sales in the near by town and that is where I found him. They are now one Happy Family :) Below are the deals we got at an estate sale...2nd day...1/2 off. It was a "collector's" estate and the people running the sale were in the mood to get the house all empty out. Hubby bought A LOT of coke stuff!!! I paid only $40.00 for ALL of these pieces of furniture!!!
More treasures...we went to estate sales on Friday and Saturday. 6 sales in those 2 days and some of the items were 1/2 off...It was very fun. There are more goodies...but I wanted to show you other things..

These gifts below are from Pearl...that sweet friend sent me these for my Birthday!!! They came on Friday!!!

Here are some of the treasures...beautiful blue table cloth, note pads, sweet little bottle, blue flower frame, rose pin, chocolate bars...Already Gone ( I don't waste any time with my Chocolate treats!!)and a few more gifts. PEARL... You ROCK and THANK YOU SO MUCH for making my BIRTHDAY very SPECIAL.... :)

Below is ANOTHER SURPRISE birthday treasures from Twyla!! I am so BLESSED with these friendships from blogging. Twyla...You ROCK and THANK YOU for making my BIRTHDAY very SPECIAL.. :) She sent me this pretty hat topiary and Stampers' idea book...and you will also see the Awesome little .....

ATC card and TAG that are from our little swap. Very sweet puppies. Just Love them. We are having so much fun making these little cards and tags and then swapping them. So much talent also in blogland!!!

This is the swap tag that Pearl made. Too cute and how cleaver with a "Bingo" theme!!!
Saturday after the estate sales we went to the flea market/antique show that is held at the fair grounds. It's very large with MANY dealers. Hubby bought my birthday gift there...I'll show you later this week. It's just fun to walk around and see all the stuff and compare prices. Some, WAY to High...
Today hubby took me out for Brunch and we were disappointed with the food...for dinner we had pizza with the "kids", Kailee and my Mom. It was a cloudy day with drizzle most of the day.
My Son, who had his own construction company is now working full time for someone. He gave me the "best" gift for my birthday...a note and this is what he wrote:
Happy Birthday !
To the best mother i could EVER have.
Thank you for always loving & helping me. I hope
that I have not disappointed you.
Your Son
Wipe your tears :) who needs gift when your Son give you a note from his heart like this. God is Good :) and I Love my Son :) He feels bad because he couldn't buy me a gift....little does he know this note is Priceless and worth more than gold....
Thank you for ALL of your Birthday Wishes for me!!! It was a Great Birthday!!!
I hope you all had a great weekend :)
~ Deb ~ :)
P.S. No cake or flowers...and that is okay. Hubby is the Best...I am truly Blessed!!! After all I'm still at home and not "working" and that is what I really be home and be the wife, mother and friend that God wants me to be.
Update: Please notice my new banner...Pearl at Pearl's Sentimental Journey makes them at a great price....check with her. She has LOTS of talent and she is a sweet heart:) Thank you Pearl:) Just love it!!!

Happy Birthday! I don't believe you can hear that too much! This was a great post and not just because I was in it:) You have a wonderful family and I loved the story of your son's gift. You can't ask for more than that. I can't believe you found another bust! I never see them anywhere, but if I do, I'll definitely think of you! Have a wonderful week! Twyla

Happy Birthday Friend! It sounds like you had one busy birthday weekend!

Yep, I'm wiping the tears now! I'm like you, don't need or want gifts...just a card from the heart means the world to me. I'm so glad your son made your day so special.

Happy belated birthday Deb! I'm sorry I missed it. Is it actually on the 19th? My and hubby's anniversary was on the 19th :0)
It sounds like you had a fantastic day and for that I'm glad.

Angie said...

What a beautiful note your son wrote you...that is truly the best gift a mom can ever get. I was crying my eyes out at that...I am sorry I missed your b-day. Our weather is crazy here and I have had to stay offline most of the time because of lightning! Yikes! But, it sounds like you got pampered and I am so deserve it! Happy Belated Birthday! Love, Angie

Judy said...

I'm so glad you had a such a wonderful birthday. I loved your note from your son. My son and I went to dinner several years ago on his birthday and he insisted on paying. Of course I threw a fit and said it was my treat because i was his birthday. He smiled and said that if it wasn't for me he wouldn't be here and thanked me for being his Mom! Talk about tears and of course I shut up and let him pay. Aren't kids special?

Deb - I missed your birthday! I'm so sorry!!!! I hope it was happy. Sounds like it was wonderful. Love the note from your son. I agree - something like that is worth so much more than anything money could buy. You are truly blessed.

So, this is how long you've had this new banner. I'm sorry I am so behind. My MIL has been sick and in the hospital since 4/15 and I have not be "regular" with my blogging since then. I'm really sorry I missed your special day. You always are so sweet to everyone and I want you to know that you are a treasure! God bless you throughout this coming year.
