39


Well, it's official. Today I am the new face of 39. I think this will be my best year yet.

I used to hate having my birthday so close to Christmas but I suddenly realized this morning that I no longer do. There you go Mom. I forgive you. Sorry it took me so long. I always was a late bloomer.

I asked Sweet Hubby not to get me any gifts this year. Between Silver Bella, shiny new staplers and my Japanese masking tape addiction I've done enough damage in the last 2 months. Of course he was smart enough to know that I didn't really mean it.

We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel and we're getting ready to head out to see Fantastic Mr. Fox followed by studio time for me & dinner grilling and cupcake baking for Sweet Hubby.

This has already been a blessed day that has nothing to do with the gifts I've opened (more on those to come...) but has everything to do with the gifts of love I've received.

I hope your day is blessed as well.

  32. Hi Jen :)

    I just use one big bag of ruffles or lays. You can use the whole thing or a little less, depending on how crunchy you want them. Let me know how they turn out :)

    Merry Christmas!
