Don't eat the pink icing!

So i've been meaning to post here but i've been down right distracted. you see for christmas i got my DH an Xbox 360. (i'm a totally awesome wife i know!) You can see the surprise on his face as he opens it. He didn't think he'd be getting one for a while. SO to the reason i'm distracted. we got the game Viva Pinata HOLY COW that game is addicting. i can sit down and then 5 hours later i realize i need to stop playing to feed the kids and take care of the house. Yes i'm a slacker. so i've had to restrict my gaming for the time being until i can "control" my "urge" to play non stop.
So last friday was my b-day. WHOO HOO. well not really as you get older they just aren't that much fun, Or are they? Thursday, when i came home from work, i got a surprise from my Sister, Jess. SHE ROCKS! just look at what she got me. She knew i was wanting to spin some on my drop spindle but i didn't want to buy any roaving until i really learned so i didn't mess it up. I know, how am i supposed to learn if i don't practice? well she sent me a book called Hich Whorling and some roaving 5 different colors and she said that it was good roaving for learning. I was so pumped to get such an awesome present. I didn't think i was going to be getting anything b/c my husband said i needed to go and GET my present.. UGH! so i went out and didn't look for myself. But I used my gift card to get an awesome purse that was 50% off. you can't beat that! and then i went home all sad and depressed that i wouldn't have a great birthday from my husband and kids.
So when i got up on friday i found a cake (the eating kind) and a card from my Dh. saying "forget about the past you can't change it and forget about your present b/c this is it" yeah i know i was a little upset but i didn't want to ruin anything so i said thanks for the cake and the card. Then he pulled out a small wrapped present. So i ripped off the wraping and found an Ipod Shuffel! I was sooo happy. and i should've known better like my DH would forget to get me something or make me get it for myself. He's really good at getting presents but he does like to trick me. so i've been loving this little thing. and Little is right is's about the size of a postage stamp just a little longer. I've put all my music on it and i still have half the memory to use up. it's awesome. Go DH you ROCK! Also on my IT list this past week is my dear friend Kelly! She's the best she sent me a wonderful cake all made out of flowers! it's soo pretty the pix i took today so it's looking a little haggard b/c i can't get the girls to stop touching it. so all in all i had a wonderful b-day and the pain of turning a year older wasn't felt that much. LOL Thank you so much friends and family I feel so loved! Now i must go i've got a date with Clark Kent, you sexy thang.

PS sorry about the spelling i can't get blogger to spell check i'll go over it myself but sorry if i missed a lot!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! What a great present! I got one a couple of years ago for my birthday and I use it all of the time! Of course, mine is now the old style so I'm starting to covet the new one---or dare I say it, a NANO!

Enjoy the roving, too. I can't wait to see what kind of yarn you make.
