a Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer to replace one I lost and also since Burt's Bees is my favorite for personal care items, a new hot pad since all my old ones were totally gross and tossed out before we moved,
a soap from Pre de Provence, 2 Toblerone, a package of Sixlets, another small chocolate, and a sample of Camille Beckman's hand cream from The Foo Foo Shoppe one of our favorite stores here in Downtown Bethlehem.
wonderful Olive Oil soap from Asquith and Somerset, a small book that mom snuck into my bag at the last moment after I said I thought is was "cute", "A Thousand and One Household Hints", and a small salad plate which I completely adore~it reads "Les Olives de Provence" around the edge and that is exactly what it will be used for~olives!
Nothing special at the thrift stores~disappointing but really I could have just gone home with what I already had.
When I returned home the kids and Marty were waiting for me with a "party". Marty had gone shopping with our oldest daughter and bought several of my favorite snack-type things which they had set out nicely. They even bought me a cake! The girls decorated with streamers and they all had a hand in a Birthday sign.
Last, but not least, there was a package from my mother-in-law with Sweet Pea scented Bath and Body Works things~mmm.
I think I got more for my birthday this year than I get any year at Christmas!
I also got to talk to dad on the phone (he had sent a card and birthday money) and that pretty much topped off a great day :)
