Shameless Self Birthday Promotion

Today is my actual birthday------ and it has been a wonderful birthday week! Big wedding to bride wrangle tomorrow so it will be back to the grind, I am thinking I should celebrate on Sunday to really bid a fond farewell to this wanton week of happy! :) I'm enjoying my last full day with my girls, it has been SO great!!! How could you ever ask for a more wonderful birthday!

Francis has the best idea I think, and this really cracked me up:

"Hi Tina,
I hope you are enjoying your birthday week. I also hope you are picking out a present for yourself. I find when buying myself a present, I always get the perfect thing. Today I celebrated your birthday week by buying yarn at my favorite LYS sale. Thanks for the inspiration.
Francis
Avid knitter"

Is that not true?

So on this, my birthday I challenge ALL blitters to get out there and buy themselves a lovely gift! Shoot the moon baby! Buy something lovely for yourself in my honor with my full encouragement.

SHOP ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whatcha get????????? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm?

This explains the Bearfoot in my mailbox - one skein for your birthday, one for Stacey's!! It all makes sense, now!

Happy Birthday!

yesterday my wee one turned 4. Party tomorrow. Since I was the one doing the birthing, I went to my LYS today and scored a sweater's worth of Araucania Nature wool in red and 4 skeins of Classic Elite Provence ON SALE for 50% off. Life, my dears, is GOOD.

Happy Birthday Tina. I did my shopping on Wednesday as that is my "me" day. My LYS had some Panda Wool that I got to make Me socks, as the last 2 pairs have been for family. And as I had a discount on the whole order coupon I also got a skein of Austermann Step and several pattern sheets. And when I got home Mom's aides stated that she had been a good girl all day and that continued when I took over. So it was a good day all round.

Happy Birthday! I bought your present to me last week in a sweet LYS in Blairsville, Georgia: a sweater's worth of lovely soft green wool blend, several patterns, needles in sizes I KNOW I already own, but I think they are in projects somewhere Then I ordered from the store some wonderful suede bucket style bag bottoms to knit up from the holes around the sides. It was a wonderful birthday and I hope you have many more.

I just couldn't pass this post without commenting. Hope you had a wonderful time. It certainly sounds as though your birthday month was good.
