Her birthday was actually yesterday, the 23rd. We spent the day shopping and eating, so I am posting about her birthday today :)
To start her birthday off, she couldn't sleep, so she woke up at 4am..and put in a movie. Please just guess what movie my momma watched. Just guess. Ok, I'll tell you..."Coalminer's Daughter". This is one of my mom's fav movies. It's about the country music legend Loretta Lynn's life. The way she talks in the movie just...idk, i can't stand it! lol. But anywho, she did fall back asleep and when we woke up we got ready for a big day! Mom opened her FABULOUS gifts from me, I love how I wrapped them :)Here's a centerpiece frame I made for her present table :)
Here she is opening up her new Jason Aldean CD from her granddog Chloe! Momma wants to be called "ChaCha" when she has grandkids, so her grandogs call her that now :)
Below is one of my favorite wrapped gifts, its a cookbook :)
Below is a glass drink container mom wnated for when she entertains and has people over! Can't you tell she's a little excited?
Doesn't this dress look familiar? It's the one I bought from the beach earlier this month!
After opening gifts we drove to my grandparents to pick them up and head to Prattville. We left Chloe at their house to play with their dog Becca while we were gone. They are BFF's! We went to eat at Longhorn's Steakhouse. I had the salad and baked potato and momma had the Flo's Filet for the first time. My pawpaw had a filet and my memaw ordered a southwest chicken salad. Here's a pic of my wonderful grandparenst while waiting on our food! Also, they sang "Happy Birthday" to mom and brought some Ice Cream!After eating we went somewhere we have NEVER been before! HOBBY LOBBY!! We have never been and have heard so many people in the blog world talking about it, that we decided to go :) We don't have one cclose to us, so that's why we went to Prattville..to go to Hobby Lobby!
Let me just say, it was pretty awesome! We came home with a few bags of fun and cute home decor :) I was prepared and went to the website and printed out 3 of their 40% off one item coupon(since we live so far and dont get weekly fliers) one for me, momma, and memaw! My memaw left with the most! She bought some wall decor, a pretty platter for her kitchen that says, "Serve the Lord with Gladness". I bought some pink ostrich feathers for my room that were 50%off (so was wall decor, and floral, and ribbons!!), a roll of super cute wire ribbon for the frames i've been making, a pretty tassel with shades of pink for my room, and some other stuff :)
These are the hot pink feathers I got! I added them to some crystal stems and voila! The pic is of me and one of my besties, Hannah at Spring Break last year!
Hobby Lobby had some AWESOME cupcake jars like I have!! Hobby Lobby's were $22.99-$39.99!! I personally wouldnt pay that unless I used the 40% off, but mine is identical and I got mine from TJMAXX for $9.99! (Mine looks llike the one on the far left)
I so wanted this canvas! It is so me! It says, "I live, therefore I shop"!! How perfect!
I LOVE this velvet damask print ribbon! It was so thick and $14.99 and 1/2 off!! I would have bought it if it wasnt so thick, because I had no clue what I would have used it for...it was just pretty :)When we left there, we went to TJMAXX, Nestle Toll House to get a cookie, Starbucks for a white chocolate mocha, and to pick up sweet Chloe :) Overall, I think Momma enjoyed her birthday!
I am making those pillowcases today and will post those later this week and also my first giveaway will be this week!!!
Have a FABULOUS week bloggers!

First we went to the bank, some hometown shops, and the Dollar General because 2-liter DIET COKE WAS ONLY $1.00!!! That's right, we racked up! Diet Coke makes me so happy!
Look how fun these fabrics are! This is only like 1/5 of her selection! Simply Unique has tons of great fabric and notions!
Roll Tide and War Eagle!! (mainly War Eagle!) I love the yellow w/ black bird fabric in the center. Don't you?
Look at the ADORABLE apron!! Doesn't it just make you want to bake a little something sweet?
Simply Unique has everything! Even SOCK MONKEYS!!
I did buy a "Fat Quarter" of fabric for my initial cup pictured above. The fabricI bought today is the blue and green folded square! I LOVE this cup, I always take it to work and love how I can always change it up with cute fabric or scrapbook paper :) I am going later this week to Simply Unique to get some fabric for the pillowcases I will be making :) So excited!
Next on our afternoon outing was Enterprise, Al. We drove a whole 20 minutes just for a CUPCAKE!!! As many of you girls know, I LOVE LOVE LOVE cupcakes! Cupcakes Ya'll is a super cute bakery!!
First, I made some "love" letters and frames! I bought some cute scrapbook paper from Michael's, Mod Podge, frames from Michael's, and foam brushes.Next I traced the letter onto the paper I wanted. I traced on the opposite side so my pen mark didnt show.
After the paper was traced I applied a coat of mod-podge on the wood letter and then layed the paper of it. I smoothed the paper out with an ID card to make any lines or bubbles go away, credit cards work too! I leave a little bit of the paper hang over the edge...just a tiny bit.
I then sanded the edges of the paper with sandpaper and then appled a thin coat of mod-podge and let dry for about 20 minutes :)
Have a FABULOUS week! I will be busy with school and work this week, so I prolly won't post again until the weekend. Stay tuned for my first ever giveaway coming up in a few weeks :)
