birthday presents

I am happy to have something to share for Kelli's Show & Tell. Be sure to check out her place for all of this week's participants.
Today, I'm going to show off my favorite birthday presents.

Don and I bought each other this beautiful blender. Our old one was... well, old, and it didn't blend ice very well. I'm loving this one.

I love this Brighton bracelet. One of my dear friends gave it to me. I've been wearing it every day since I received it. Thank you, Lori.

My other dear friend, Susie, gave me this beautiful jacket. It's an olive green and you can't tell, but the buttons have a little rhinestone-ish piece embedded - so it has some pizzazz.

Who doesn't love gift cards =] Here are two to two of my favorite places - JC Penney and Claim Jumper. Thanks mom and dad.

And my secret sister from church gave me these frog slippers. If you've been reading my blog, you know I love the F.R.O.G.s. Thank you... whoever you are, my lovely secret sister.

I'm in love with your slippers! :) And the blender is to die for! I still have a stinky $10 blender from Target... I can't complain. I just got a mixer... must... stay... focused... on ... the .... positive.... :)

nannykim said...

What fun!! Now I wonder if those froggy slippers are comfy?

Those froggy slippers are a hoot! Also, I noticed you had "Michael Clayton" down as a movie you had seen. Was it good? I woud like to see it. I am going to see "Rendition" tonight. I'm excited!

Mary said...

You received many beautiful gifts. Love the frog slippers. They look so warm and cozy.

Have a wonderful day.


Lori said...

OH I love all your gifts. Thanks for showing us.
I like your new blender. You know what I just requested a blender for Christmas. Ours is old, old.
Love your olive green jacket it is so pretty. Your bracelet is very pretty too.
Love, love the froggie slippers. I love to wear slippers around the house...seems my feet are always cold.
Blessings for a wonderful weekend dear friend.
I posted my Show and Tell too. Come see
Gift cards are always nice too...that way you can go and pick out what you like.

Great idea. I love the slippers. We have a FROG car seat cover and a FROG lunchbag from an aunt who is "into" the FROG phrase. (fully rely on God, correct?)

I love gift cards - go mom and dad!

Short Stop said...

I am here to readily admit that I am completely jealous of your new blender. Ours does not do well at all, and I am all about my husband's peanut butter milkshakes. Maybe I'll just hop over and borrow yours sometime! :)

Love all of your b-day gifts. That jacket will be so cute with your favorite shoes!!! :)

Momma Roar said...

The frog slippers are too cute - I bought a pair of puppy dog slippers before having Elle - I was having her c-section and knew I'd be in the hospital for a few days and I needed something classy, HA!

I really like that bracelet too, its beautiful!

Cindy said...

When I got a new blender for a gift, it was an exciting day! Enjoy.

PEA said...

It's funny you should show that blender and mention that your old one wasn't crushing ice very well...that's exactly what's happening with my old blender and I'm on the lookout for a new one! Will have to check out the one you have:-) I've just had a birthday as well and gift cards are usually my favourite gifts to receive! lol Love the froggy slippers! hehe xo

Lynne said...

Great birthday gifts. Those froggy slippers are adorable.

~Just A Thought Ginger said...

You look like one blessed woman! What fun gifts. I love the slippers! I need a new pair right now and those are just too fun!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

jennifer said...

Incredible blender!

What a neat birthday cache. It is obvious that you are loved:)

Thanks for the neat show and tell!

Lori said...

Diana, In answer to your question on my blog: Derek didn't use that set. He just picked up on reading and was reading to us in preschool.
Megan is struggling so we wanted to get something extra to help her out at home here. We're all about spending time with our kids and helping them learn.

Quinne said...

Hi Diana :) What a FUN show and tell! Your gifts are wonderful, and I hope that your day was lovely! Blessings, Q

Miss Eagle said...

A gifted girl!

Blessings and bliss

MightyMom said...

wonderful gifts!
