HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!

Today's my Birthday and my husband has made it an entire weekend affair. He truly went out of his way to make it special. Yesterday morning I woke up to an entire table of gifts. He bought me all sorts of great things and I could see that he truly put thought into each gift. Y'all I got so much that I can't even put that many pictures up on the posting. Then he took me to brunch at a tea house (really girly) and we had blackberry tea, chicken & blueberry salad on croissants, and fruit. We went for a lovely drive and stopped in at Pie in the Sky (great desserts) and had pie & ice cream. I had Key lime...yum! This afternoon he took me to a Cajun restaurant for Crawfish Etouffee. And we went antiquing. All and all it was the perfect Birthday. I feel so spoiled.

Here's some of my favorite gifts:

Two New Orleans Cook Books I've had my eye on...




Williams&Sonoma Dessert Cook Book. I've been trying to master a great dessert recipe for my dinner parties.


Wow, my favorite magazines. He got Southern Lady's Gardening and Summer Entertaining magazines for me (special editions). He also got me a subscription for Louisiana Cooking and New Orleans Homes (two more fabulous magazines). He did good!


Look at this adorable pendant. It says, "Love ya LA." It's totally cute and I love it. Even though we live in Texas our heart will always belong to New Orleans.

And I got two books I've been really wanting by Southern Lady.


Those are just a few things I got. I also got a ton of make up from my favorite line, beautiful Ann Taylor skirt, 3 Ann Taylor purses, CD of 70's love hits, my favorite brand of journals (use them to write down products, shops, and boutiques I come across). Thanks Pookie for making my Birthday special. I love you!!!

Happy Birthday, Gigi!!! I'm so glad you've had a wonderful day. Oh my goodness, you got so many great gifts. I never knew about the magazine Louisiana Cooking. That would be a great gift for my mom. Ummmm...Crawfish Etouffee is one of my favorite dishes! Happy Birthday, my friend.
