Happy Girl(s)

I just returned home after a weekend at my family's for my birthday. I pretty much knew what I was receiving for my birthday (new mirror from crate and barrel, handmade ceramic plates, $$ for our new house). I had a sneaking suspicion I was also going to get a new growth necklace from artmind's lovely shop, and of course I was right!

I am now the proud owner of the olive AND dark turquoise necklaces! Lucky Me!!! On top of that Mitsy (creative mind behind artmind) also sent me a necklace for my birthday from her! She is just about the coolest/nicest person I've met on Etsy :)

Pardon the yarn in the photo. Since we are moving I've packed up the lightbox, and I had to improvise to take a picture of the necklace. She made it in green, which is my favorite color. I've already told her a million times, but thanks Mitsy! Your necklace was the highlight (and biggest surprise) of my birthday!
Besides my awesome felt necklace collection, we had the most delicious lemon raspberry cake:

We played some mini golf, hit up the driving range (not the highlight of the trip for me), and went for a long walk in the woods to play in the waterfalls. The puppies had a lot of fun too, and today is definitely a recovering day from all the fun and festivities.

Even though my birthday is not until the 14th, my birthday weekend with the family was a lot of fun! I didn't even mind the rain that came on and off through out the 5days that we were up there. All in all my (early) 24th birthday has been a ton of fun!

I'm as happy as all these girls :)

Haha, now I remember the color of the happy girls! I think they matched the giftwrapping! ;)
I'm so pleased that you like the felted all around necklace too, Stephanie. You have become as much fan of my work as I am of yours I think! :)
And the virtual piece of cake I had this weekend looked exactly like the photo - thanks for showing! :)
Happy happy birthday!!!
