So, I said long ago that I'd update this blog with photos of GIFTS for yours truly... so here are a couple of things that I received for my late December birthday - they definitely made my day and they were all given to me by ladies whose names start with "K"!
From Kelle (and Bailey - not a K name), I got this beautiful butter dish (posing as a jewelry holder) and a beautiful brooch:
These girls also left me the BEST birthday message - Bailey yelling, "I LOVE YOU, JESS – I LOVE YOU JESS!!!" made my whole YEAR!
Kailen (my goddaughter) sent (via her mother, my cousin Kelly) this awesome card:
Next, from Kate I received this beautiful print of my beloved MICHIGAN(!):
Sonia Kashuk - who knew!?!
Finally, from my friend Katie, I received exactly what I asked for. I donation to The Water Project:
It was a great birthday! My sister and brother also gave money to The Water Project and my mom bought me an electric toothbrush (which I TOTALLY wanted!), my other sister and the same brother got me Kanye West and Taylor Swift's new CDs (I made them fight over a Beyoncé CD), and my friends Joel and Melissa got me so much Alice and Wonderland dishware that I can't wait to eat all day! JUST KIDDING!!!
I hope everyone is surviving under all of this ice and snow! Keep warm!
