Happy Birthday to Melanie & JanMary and Gift for You!

Today is our daughter's 26th - (cough!) Yes, twenty-sixth Birthday. Where HAS the time gone? She's off celebrating somewhere's today with her voicemail box full - can't even leave her a message! Luckily we were able to celebrate early together this last weekend.


Wishing you a FAB-O day wherever it finds you Sweet Daughter! We love you more than any blog post could ever say! (ps empty your voicemail!)

Its also (ALMOST missed it) my friend JanMary's Birthday too and she's celebrated in FINE style in Ireland! Click HERE to read about her severe pampering! Happy Birthday, dear friend and when I FINALLY do get sending parcels off to my blog friends (which I hope to do one by one, as I can) I will be sure to wish you a belated birthday THERE too!

Now, since I baked up this delicious cake I thought I'd better make an element which would help us take care of the other end of the spectrum - so be sure to check out today's FREE gift after my little "plug" for my dear friends Kim and Saxon.

KIM has some WONDERFUL CU products emerging from her creative mind and on sale NOW - be quick now and head over to her blog as she is also giving a FREE gift of some CU Paper Cuts flowers! Get it HERE!

And Saxon (who I am catching up with after a long absence, has some very timely "Back to School" products launching and has included some BB QP's created by Kat available as a FREE gift to you as well! Clickin' HERE will take you there!

Finally, here's a small little gift for you. Very simple, high quality black and white images for you! They could easily be used as overlays, you might change the colors etc! You'll find ways I've not even imagined, I bet. I'd love to see HOW you use them! I chose the gym theme because both Melanie and I have been hitting the gym and encouraging one another! I've lost 2lb to date. Its HARD.

JanMary also has been thinking workout-wise and has been trying a program with the Wii and I believe will start spinning classes again in fall when her children are back in school.

I've started to use weights for the first time in my life. I don't want anaconda arms or anything but would like to tone up as well as lose. My goal is 20lb by Christmas. Think I'll do it? It helps having a handsome husband who comes along with me!
