The big 5-0!

The big day is finally here!  Today I turn 50 years old!  I have already had two days of celebration so I am in full happy mode.  Fifty seems to be a great age.  I appreciate the wisdom that comes with each new decade.  Much of it comes with learning stuff the hard way though.  It has a been an extraordinary life so far and I look forward to all that is ahead!

On Thursday I received birthday flowers from an old friend.  They are so pretty!
Yesterday I met up with my mom for birthday lunch.  We had Famous Dave's barbecue, which was awesome!  She had a mountain of presents for me, all of which were gorgeous!  Afterward we went and did a little shopping at HomeGoods, which is one of the best stores ever!  I bought these two treasures:



You all know, I love me some vintage.  I fell in love with this box.  It is actually quite large.  I have no idea what I am going to do with it, but I had to have it.  

The other thing I fell in love with was this large pasta serving type dish.  The photo is a bit deceiving because it is HUGE!  It is 14 inches in diameter.  I thought that it is very unique and lovely.  I plan on getting a bowl stand and standing it upright in my kitchen as decor.  Again, I just fell in love with it.

So now I am off for more birthday fun!  Enjoy your Saturday!
