H54F - Sweet Surprise

I was a complete space cadet and forgot to take pictures of this week's highlights. How could I do that?! It started with a great first birthday for my niece, Hadleigh. Hopefully I will get some pictures and share them, but am completely disappointed in myself for not taking a single one of my own! Worst Aunt ever! Other than that I guess this week was pretty low key. Nothing super fun happened, but sometimes those are the best. I would go to work and come home, make dinner, and catch up on our TV shows. It really doesn't get much better than that!

I did however, have a few other fun high five's I thought I'd share!
  1. This was such a surprise and definitely the highlight of my week! My sister and mom pitched in and got me an embroidery machine! I have been lusting over them, but never thought that I would get one anytime soon, much less now! I was dropping mad hints to Christopher for my birthday but now it looks like he's off the hook! Can't wait to start embroidering anything and everything I can get my hands on!
  2. Christopher got a new desk chair and Milo now thinks his old one is his. How can I say no to that face?!
  3. This was my Thirsty Thursday. I can't say no to a bottle of Loosen.
  4. As you all saw yesterday, I made this terrific pom pom necklace! Make one for yourself with my tutorial!
  5. Like I said, I was a bit of a space cadet this week so when I was stranded 20 miles from home by my work because I had no gas OR my credit card to get gas, Christopher had to come out to me to give me the card I forgot at home. So to make a bad situation bearable, we went to dinner at Il Fornaio. We had some gift cards to use, so it beat sitting in traffic!
I hope everyone had a GREAT week and are ready for a spring-like weekend. We are finally getting some good weather just in time for Easter!

Now I have no idea where it is :( I'm going to have to make another one. I love your red with the gold chain - it's gorgeous.
