Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my birthday. I'm officially 29. Again. My big boys were out of school yesterday. Which was good because I got to spend the day with them, but bad because I got to spend the day with them. Ifyouknowwhatimean. We had a nice day together and my hubby took me to lunch at Tucanos. The kids LOVED it! They kept saying, "We need to eat here all the time!"

My sweet friend, Carrie, surprised me with some super special gifts. I can't wait to show them all to you!

First, She made me a treat and delivered it in this box. Isn't it darling!!??!! I couldn't wait to tear that scalloped circle chipboard off there so I could put it on something. (I didn't think she'd let me keep her cupcake box!)

Here's what was inside:

Oh. My. Word! Can you even stand the cuteness? The yumminess? They're lemon cupcakes and she even decorated the top!!  Eeeeeeeeeeeee! I LOVE lemon!


Lemon curd! I could bathe in lemon curd. I love it that much. These were divine. And every time I forget how yummy they were, I have another one. Just to remind myself. *snort*

These delicious little yummies were accompanied by this:

Isn't that the cutest little gift set EVER!!  Here, let me show you some close-ups.

I LOVE the flower she put on this box. And she used all of my favorite things - satin ribbon, and pink paper, and the sweet pea felt flowers (on the cupcake box), and the little gathered edging around the top of the gift box! It's just too much!

Here's a closeup of the card:

SUPER cute! And she used shimmer paint on the frosting and the candle flames! I KNOW!

And in the box? Let me show you:

The cutest little felt flower brooch! She made it using the Stampin' Up! Circle die. It's so adorable!

My husband also made me a yummy cake. I'll be back to show you some pictures of that a little later! My diet took a bit of a hit, but my heart was full of love. Thanks so much for your kindness, Carrie! Oh, and thanks too for the pictures (she said I could borrow these from her blog!)

Happy Birthday Britiney! Any chance Carrie would share her recipe? My husband is a lemon lover, and although I prefer chocolate I must say those cupcakes look yummy even to me!

Well Happy Birthday Britiney and you have the best friend ever! Can I borrow her in April for my birthday? Those cupcakes look scrumptious... I can ALMOST taste one just by looking. Adorable card and gift set too- she is a very talented and dear friend, I can tell!
