45 and still Alive ;)

Guess what day it is.....Its my birthday :)
My 45th Birthday to be exact :)
Actually it is not only my birthday, but one of my best friends birthday as well, she is the same age as me.
Here is a photo of my friend Kelly (happy birthday Kelly) and I...oh ya and my brother Calum stealing my thunder, lol.
I think we were in grade 5 or 6 here.
If your wondering, I'm the one on the right, haven't changed a bit have I, lol.

 The girls asked what I wanted for my birthday and for the life of me, I could not come up with a darn thing.
So I asked them to make me Blueberry cheese cake.
This is so good and light, I don't think it has any calories to it, lol.
Kristy and Heather made this for me today.
Those are blueberries that Hubby and I picked last year :)

Funny Story:
My Heather is a perfectionist. She also has a certain way she likes to do things....yes she has my personality :)
As Kristy was putting in the sugar, she didn't fill the measuring cup level, so she just added a bit more by guessing.
Heather couldn't believe she did this. Then she looks as me and say "I can't work with her!"
I laughed so hard.
I have to tell you, they did great. I even grabbed a second piece.

Onto My Day:
After bringing Kristy to work I went by my friend Debbie's work to finally bring her, her very be-lated birthday gift.
I gave her my Spring Mini Album.
Did a bit of running around.
Came home and did some book work. We have been to the cottage so much I was falling a bit behind on my book work. I hate when that happens.
We went (the whole family) to Montana's for my birthday dinner. Very loud, forgot it was kids day on Tuesdays.
Came home and opened my gifts.
Oh is that what your waiting to hear about ;)
My daughters bought me 3 of the OPI nail polishs to do french manicures. Also a special brush to get it just perfect.
Hubby bought me a gift card to Michael's Craft store for a unbelievable amount. But you know I will still be using my coupons, teehee.
My SIL bought me different sized envelopes, chipboard characters, 2 sets of Recollections stamps "Baby" and "Fairy Princess", a tape refill for my ATG and a wonderful smelling candle.
Yes I was spoiled yet again this year :)

Thank you for all the birthday wishes you have sent me on yesterday's post and on my Facebook page :)
 I hope you all had a very creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)
