Happy Birthday to Me!

Yep, today is my birthday.  :-)  I refuse to acknowledge that I've aged...but I still enjoy my birthday.  My parents always get me the best gifts.

I asked for this:



But got this:



Fair trade, right?!?!  With the (impending) purchase of my house, I guess this year is about the "practical" gift.  Honestly, LOVE coffee - this is an AMAZING gift.

I got a few other house-centric gifts too - some towels, new pots and pans, and cute pink kitchen gadgets. :-)

  6. Happy Birthday! There are lots of people with July birthdays...or at least with the blogs I read and lots of people I know IRL!

  7. Happy happy birthday to you!! I don't really see how the gift you wanted related to the gift you got, but you're right--it's practical. I love owning a home and you will too. :)
