Birthday Haul!

Hubby asked me a few days ago what I wanted for my birthday.  I replied that I only wanted to spend time with him.  When I woke up this morning, he greeted me with a mug of coffee and a birthday surprise: he took the day off work to spend with me!  Best. Present. Ever.

But then he also surprised me with lunch at one of my fave Mexican restaurants, a trip to Yarns Unlimited, where he bought me (2) skeins of Shibui Sock yarn in Midnight colorway, Starbucks, where he treated me to a Pumpkin Spice Latte with some down time, chatting with one another, and finally to the book store.  Then he sent me off to buy fabric at JoAnn's while he took our DS to get his hair cut.

JoAnn's was having a Moonlight Madness Sale and I got 6 fat quarters for $0.99/each!  I also picked up some Lion Brand Yarn Sock Ease on sale, Buy 1, get 1 50% off, in Red Hots & Toffee colorways.  And I nabbed some pinking shears!  I have a JoAnn app on my Android phone, which I'd loaded with a 10% off coupon, good for 10% my total craft purchase, regular and sale items!  Needless to say, I got a lot for very little!

It was such a fun birthday!  The best part was spending the entire day with my hubby, just me & him!  



  1. That sounds like a wonderful birthday! I want to know what your favorite Mexican restaurant is and I'll have to check out that yarn store some time. I frequently travel to that part of the state for work.

  2. Sounds like a very good day. Oh, we are FINALLY getting a Joann's here; I'm stoked!!

  3. Aww what a sweet birthday. I'm glad you had a good time, and secretly can't wait to see what that shibui turns out to be.

  4. Awwww what a sweet husband you have, what more can a girl ask for on her birthday other than to be with the one she loves and crafty things! Perfect!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday. Sounds wonderful!
