Today is my official Birthday. I must say that I'm one lucky gal. My husband spoils me rotten. I have a wonderful husband and every year he really goes out of his way to make me feel so special. He really puts a lot of thought and effort into my Birthday. I love you Pookie Bear!
I've had a Birthday weekend full of surprises. My hubby surprised me with a new phone. I use to have a Blackberry but now I'm in love with my new iphone. I can see why all my friends told me to get one. I've been playing with it all weekend.
I opened a box full of books that I've had added to my favorites under Amazon.com. He must have looked up my Amazon account. I was shocked when I opened the box to about a half a dozen books I've been lusting after.
Here's a fantastic cookbook. This was a complete surprise. My husband had it sent over from New Orleans. After Katrina people were afraid that the city's heritage was lost forever. As everyone knows cooking is a big part of the Big Easy life. Many people don't think of this but family recipes were lost with the homes. However, the Times-Picayune (newspaper) put together family recipes and created this awesome cookbook so New Orleanians. A very special book.
My husband had an entire gift bag full of past issues of Garden & Gun plus a new subscription. Also a subscription to Southern Lady and Tea Time. He knows me so well.
Again, I was surprised when I opened up this little package. It had the entire box set of the Wonder Years. I adore the Wonder Years. Who didn't want Kevin and Winnie to get together. That was a great show. Is anyone else a huge fan?
My husband also surprised me with the entire set of the 80's hit show Hart to Hart. There's a little more to it. My real name is Jennifer and when I was younger everyone told me I was a mini Jennifer Hart. They said I looked like her, dressed like her, acted like her, etc. It's been a big joke ever since I could remember. Only season 1 and 2 are available in the states. I now have the entire show from start to finish. My husband had to order it out of the country. I'm excited to start watching it.
Tonight my husband and I are having dinner at Cheesecakes and then off to the movies. Then this next weekend we'll be leaving for New Orleans for a week. My husband has a conference but we are combining work with Birthday festivities with friends. I'm really excited to see everyone and shop at some of my favorite stores.
