Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen gifts I received from family/friends at my "surprise" 30th birthday party this past weekend.
1. A pink metal bucket filled with all sorts of things: candle, lotion, body wash, hand soap, champagne glasses, sparkling grape juice, and the book Chicken Soup for the Girlfriend's Soul.
2. Money
3. Wal-Mart gift card
4. Shell gift card (definitely handy considering gas prices are so high!)
5. Purple spaghetti strap silky nightgown
6. Silver & blue cylinder box with bath gift set inside
7. Earrings
8. Creative Memories fancy square maker
9. Creative Memories gift certificate, which I used to buy THIS and pages to go with it.
10. Bluebird Windchimes
11. A round yellow duck pillow (not sure why?! LOL)
12. A couple weeks ago I got several new shirts and a new pair of jeans, which was my gift from Joe.
13. With some of my birthday money, I'm buying THIS and THIS and THIS for myself. Not sure what else yet.

Look at your loot! I thought the nightie would be from Joe-- but I guess not, LOL!

Courtney said...

LOL! The nightie was actually from Joe's parents. LOL Guess they're trying to make sure we keep the spark alive! heehee. Actually, the duck pillow was from them too...I don't get that part though? I wonder if that was supposed to be for the boys? Who knows!

Oh, lovely gifts, I specially like the champagne glasses. Have to wear that purple silky nightgown to use them the first time! I love Bill Cosby too! my TT is up, but you know that already

Karen said...

Wowsiers! Sounds like you made out like a bandit!

I'll have to use this list as an example for my family and friends. *grin*

"Hey guys! Look at all the goodies this gal got for her birthday! Sure would be nice to get this kind of stuff for mmyy birthday..."

Too obvious? lol

Norma said...

I hope there was lots of ice cream and cake. Sounds like a great party. As my eye scanned your list, I skipped part of a sentence and went back--thought you said you got purple spaghetti. Ha. Ha.

Thanks for stopping by my TT.

Denise said...

Very nice giftage! (I wonder if that's even a word.)

Thanks for stopping by my 13!

Lena said...

You spoiled girl! ;)

Great Amazon choices - especially Five For Fighting.

And I STILL laugh at Bill saying the kid looked like a glazed donut - ewwww!

Remember to USE your scrapbooking supplies ;). I know you do. I'm intimidated :|

Kimmy said...

Great birthday gifts. See... 30 isn't so bad ;)

Toby Keith... Jacob loves him. Has all his cds. Bill Cosby Himself... I can seriously quote the entire thing word for word. No joke. I used to watch it over and over (shocker!) when I was a kid. I used to his routine constantly for my friends and sisters.

"Dad is great..." totally doing the look and move with my imaginary fork :p

Mama B said...

Happy Happy Birthday to you!!! It looks like you made out!! #2 is always good!

Kimmy said...

Oh, the autolink code is here!
