Fifty is Nifty!

My celebration actually started yesterday. When I got home last night, DH sent me to the sofa in front of a roaring fire and brought me a glass of wine and 2 dozen roses - yellow, my favorite. Then he served me dinner while I watched "The Bachelor." Yes, I confess, I watch it. Then I watched CherB'S awesome tutorial about her reflection card and followed along with my Gypsy. How awesome is technology?!?!

I started today with a great cup of coffee and a bagel with my favorite olive and cream cheese spread, FREE from my favorite NY bagel place - and his are "real" NY bagels 'cuz he's from there. He is turning 50 in 4 weeks, so we have a special connection....LOL!

The staff at work is taking me to lunch today, and DH is taking me to my favorite Spanish restaurant for dinner, where the owners are friends and they know it's my birthday, so I'm suspicious that they have something up their sleeves. I'd be happy with just a pitcher of their fabulous sangria!

I'm proudly wearing my LARGE black "50 - Over the Hill" button that my dear mother sent me, along with an application to AARP...LOL! But, I'm a "glass half full" kind of girl, so I think I might have to get out the Cricut and change the button to read "over the HUMP." After all, life is good these days. I have the best DH in the world and he's been taking me on awesome trips now that the kids are grown. I'm very proud of my kids, I have a job that I love (having any job these days is a good thing), and my DH pretty much lets me buy what I want for crafting. How lucky can a girl get? It's a good day to turn 50!

Glad you had a happy birthday! You deserve all the good karma you get! Saw your voting for PHotoshop tutorials and I am so interested! I would like to convert photoshop brushes to cut files to be used in my SCAL 2. I keep looking at the new Basic Grey digital items and thinking if only I could cut them.
