wow. thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday – nothing better than waking up to a flood of lovely messages on your birthday!! i need to figure out how to have those come in…on just a monday…for no reason. until then, i’ll take ‘em on my birthday!
we saw santaland diaries on friday with friends (i told you – my bday becomes a week long event!) after almost breaking a case of the highly coveted great lakes brewing co. christmas ale – long story – just know that stuff is like gold around here! i highly recommend seeing santaland – it’s our 2nd time and it’s just such a funny, entertaining story.
yesterday for my actual birthday day, hubby took me out to a yummy brunch and then out to the movies to see black swan. in one word? WOW. ok, i need a few more words. run, run, run to see this movie! essentially it’s about a ballet dancer possibly unraveling – it’s dark, creepy and, yet, the dancing and cinematography are beautiful.
i had to share with you the gift my hubby got me. it’s the best kind…handmade. the kind that made me tear up because of the thought that went in to it and how beautiful it is. he framed a succession of photos he took of our dog burnsey shaking – yeah, he gets bonus points for his gift this year!
and…we finally got it together and now have a fully decorated, gorgeous tree! (if not the biggest tree ever - i swear it seemed smaller at the tree lot!!)
hope you all had a wonderful weekend! only 5 days until christmas…
