Hubby's Birthday Gift~~for Me

Monday, September 02, 2013

emoticon Happy Birthday to Me emoticon
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had just got enough coffee into me this morning when my wee sister called...enough coffee to not be grumpy when she insisted on serenading me all the way through Happy Birthday before chatting! emoticon

I was in the shower when hubby's cuz called from Ontario....she chatted with hubby whilst I dried off because I told him to say that I was going slow so as NOT to fall again! emoticon
When I took the phone she also serenaded me with the full verse of Happy Birthday~ before she would chat with me.

After lunch a knock came at our door...I opened it and there stood my friend Debbie...singing a full verse of Happy Birthday~~ emoticon

Later in the afternoon...Number one son called via Skype and chatted for a good half hour (and NO he did not sing to me emoticon )

In the meantime...I had Facebook birthday wishes from my friends and family....I even had wishes from my 50-50-50 team....and over here on Sparks on the RV'ers more wishes...along with Spark Goodies with wishes~~

Just before I started this Blog my number 2 son and his wife called wishing my Happy Birthday....So I have been blessed with family and friends on my Special Birthday~~

When I first got up this morning....hubby waited till this * grumpy* face had some coffee in her emoticon then he gave me hugs & kisses and wished me Happy Birthday giving me a birthday bag.
Besides the nice cards ( yup 2 a tradition we have ) Inside the bag I found this a squealed with delight!

YUP~~ MY very own tool bag! All in mauve and grey....even all the tools!

I fell in love~~with the tool bag of course!

Hubby says...Dig in the bag....there is something else in there....I was chuckling when I found this~~

emoticon About 2 weeks *house* ( MY ) screwdriver was no where to be found! I wanted to do something and when I went to get it where it should have been it was not there~~
I asked hubby....
Oh Yea he says...I borrowed it ...
Where is it? I ask
Hmmmm....I am not sure he says....
We searched high and growling that it was MY screwdriver and he was NOT suppose to touch it because he had his own all over the work space in the basement and out in his shed....
We could not find it anywhere.... emoticon

Thus my present from hubby....

The padlock....said hubby was for me to lock it so he could not get in to *lose* anything from my tool bag..... emoticon

Tonight we went out to supper at a favourite restaurant of ours. The food is always good and our favourite waitress was working....
Here we are ready to go out....

I DO love my hubby as much as my new tool bag.... emoticon

I had liver/onions/bacon with veggies.....( hubby hates liver so I often get it if we eat out because I love it and do not cook it at home )

Hubby says....go ahead....
Order dessert....It's your Birthday.....( he had a plan in )

I ordered a cherry cheesecake....
Our waitress came out...singing.... YUP.....the whole verse of Happy Birthday to me....with one candle lit and stuck on the top of the whipped cream....

emoticon emoticon first thing that happened with that dessert was I shaved off all that whipped cream ( I hate it )....
Hubby says....give it over here with my chocolate cake~~ emoticon

Second thing....I could not eat the cherries....wayyyyy too sweet for me....

Third....I ate about 3 bites of the remainder of the cheesecake and could not finish it....( I am not nor have I ever got fat on sweets... emoticon downfall is carbs & fats )

So....hubby says.... emoticon guessed it....
Pass it here....I will finish it here for you..... emoticon

So it has been a emoticon day.....and I even had Goggle wishing me Happy Birthday every time I entered my internet explorer.....

Now~~who could ask for more eh?

    emoticon Sounds like a great Birthday!
Love the little blue tool kit.

My Mom used to make Liver, onions and bacon~and my husband and her would enjoy it. I am NOT a fan, and never make it! Think I'll surprise him one of these nights have it for dinner.

Best wishes to you & your husband, for a Happy Healthy Autumn!

  emoticon You reminded me of my Mom, when she went out to eat she usually ordered liver and onions. She was a good cook but she didn't think she did a good job cooking liver and onions.
