My dh James and I celebrated my birthday today. James is off on Tuesdays, so I took off today also. Now on yesterday he gave me a beautiful digital frame and a rolling cart to hold all my "stuff".
Today we started the day by going to my favorite restaurant, Luigi's. MMM! The food was so good. Here is a pic of James and I at Luigi's.
Next we went to my favorite LNS, MaryAnn's Needleworks. I went to buy some thread for another one of my stitching for a cure ornaments. I picked out two colors of Wildflowers and MaryAnn gave them to me free for my birthday. Isn't she cool? I have included a pic of her next to her shop.
McGregor is a little town outside of where I live. Luigi's and MaryAnn's are located there. They have the most beautiful murals on their buildings. It is a very old town that has wonderful small shops all over.
We then went to several different stores and such. The final stop was at the Arboretum. I looked and looked for the roadrunners they have there, but alas they must have been in hiding. But I did get a pic of this beautiful daffodil that is blooming there. The weather was wonderful. Mid 70's.
And then, I found that my heart diamond floss holder was featured in the About.com cross stitch photo album. Here is the site:
All in all, a fantastic day.
