It's my party and I'll juice if I want to....

Hi all.
I had a birthday this week.  Woo-hoo!
In my family, birthdays usually last about a week with random celebrations here and there as small gifts trickle in and remind you how much you're loved.

My actual birthday morning started off with a visit from my best friend.  She knocked on the door at 7:30 am with homemade muffins and fruit!  How well does she know me?!?!  We all dug in and managed to save some for papa who was still snoozing.

Then we got out my package that had been delivered a few days earlier from my mom and dad...

That's right!  I got one of these bad boys.  I am thrilled.  Don't get me wrong, I loved my little centrifugal juicer (see it in the background?), but it was time to move up in the juicing world and I am looking forward to making lots of healthy food/snacks and treats with this Champion Juicer.  It does so much more than juice carrots people!!

So what did we do with it?  We trimmed our easter baskets we started last weekend and made fresh wheatgrass juice for all. 

Oh it was yummy and the girls always love juicing what they've grown themselves.

F insisted on a picture of the wheatgrass "poop".

A few days earlier my Mother in law threw me a wonderful dinner party.  Complete with chocolate covered strawberries made by my Sister in law, Katie.  Yum.

This is an Asiatic Lily that my other Sister in law, Elizabeth gave me.  It's quite beautiful and a perfect decoration for Spring.

My Daddy always send me flowers, this was the bouquet this year.  The girls enjoy snipping some off and setting them around the house.

My Mom also sent me....


I love gnomes.

This has been a regular game in the house since we got it last week. 

Savage (our toy poodle) covets the balls though, so it makes for an interesting game.

Look, it's like they know the ball is coming for them!!

A friend of mine has a beautiful succulent garden and shared this little guy with me...

I'm not what it's called, but it hangs over the out she said.  I want to get an iron hanging pot thingy and out it in there out in my garden.

Last, but not least, my sweet husband (who was a bit busy with a deadline) on my birthday, will be taking me to 118 for dinner this weekend.  Oh yeah.  I'll have 1 of everything.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Thank you to all my family and friends for making this a special birthday.
