Some Birthday Ramblings and Giveaway Winner!

I'm not sure I mentioned once last week that our family has been sick. Maybe I thought, "Oh, it'll just be a couple days and we'll all be back to normal".  I wish!  Feel free to scroll down if you don't wish to hear my brief ranting. :-(

As I've recently learned, even some people closest to me didn't know I am practically blind (at least in my opinion). I wear Night and Day contacts (AMAZING!!!), but last week's projects left some dust in my eyes which has left me with a possible scratch on my eye. I'm resorting to my glasses and no eye make-up, and honestly, just don't feel like myself. Not to mention the hacking chest cough and congestion that just won't.go.away, leaving me tired and unable breath let alone workout. Enough about me - my kiddos actaully endured a couple days of fevers, and my super hubby somehow managed to be the only one of us who didn't get this cold. Even after getting his flu shot last week - at least someone was left to take care of us. ;-)

By the way, my hubby is pretty amazing and really knows me best. If you follow via twitter, you know that my wonderful husband got me this for my birthday last week.

I was SHOCKED to say the least.
Personally, I was just happy that we had a great offer
on our house, he got me a yummy coffee,
and a date night at my fave restaurant Conto's.

It's a new compressor btw. I took a picture of the old one,
but deleted it. It's so ugly and old! lol
This one has one 16-gauge nail gun,
one 18-gauge nail gun,
and a STAPLER! Yeah...no more hammer tacker!

So, now I am recovering from sickness last night's birthday party,
and totally planning to enjoy the little bit of extra
DQ Ice Cream Cake my mom brought for the party.
Oh how I love that stuff...I really need to kick this cold
so I can workout!!!

--- ANYWAY ---
