Happy Birthday to Me

man am i spoiled. there are so many great things about birthdays. realizing all of the things you want somehow makes me realize all of the things i already have. i am truly blessed.

although my birthday is not until tomorrow. my husband took work off today to spend with me so we celebrated a little early. plus, since it is almost impossible to surprise me with presents for my birthday i got a big present a little early: my sewing table.
this table garrison found on ksl. it needed a little "TLG" (tender loving garrison) as he repaired it, sanded and painted it. this coral table is really a much needed furniture item in our home. i never thought in my wildest dreams that i would be sewing as much as i have been in these past few months but, i truly love it. in fact, when garrison asked me what i wanted to do for my birthday all i asked was for him to take the day off so that he could play "mom" and let me uninterruptedly work on sewing projects.

today, my mom called me and invited us over for lunch. at lunch i knew i was going to get a present but i had no clue that it would be a serger!! my husband and parents went in together a few months ago to get me this beauty. i seriously was speechless when i saw the box partially because of shock, and mostly because my brain went a mile a minute thinking of all the projects i can't wait to do with this thing (and all the projects i wished i would have waited to sew because they would have been so much easier!) i cannot believe it! you know that moment when you realize that you are spoiled because you own something your parents never have.... this was one of those moments.

pardon me, i have already taken more time away from this baby than i wanted in order to write this post. don't hate me if i don't write a post for a few days, it's my birthday and i am going to celebrate it in style. 

obviously... there will be more than enough projects to share on here soon enough! enjoy your week! i know i'm going to.
