10,000 Thank You's

A super huge heartfelt Thank You to everyone that took the time to stop by and wish me a happy birthday. I can't begin to express how much it has meant to me and just how wonderful this birthday month has been. I feel such a depth of gratitude ... it's likely going to take me 100 years to come close to repaying the joy that I have been given. I promise to give it my best effort ... who knows, if I try hard enough maybe I can do it in 50. :)

UberSpouse and I had a date tonight, so critter-child was with gran till about an hour ago. I couldn't keep her up to draw the names for the party favors, so ... I assigned everyone that left a comment on "It's My Party" with a number (starting at the top - I didn't include myself):

Then I went to http://www.random.org/ and set it up for 4 random numbers between 1 and 14 ... drumroll, please ... and the winners are:

Congratulations Marlou B., e.beck, Donna and Cindy. I'll be sure to leave a comment in your latest post asking for you to email me your addess.

Thanks again to everyone for helping make this the BEST birthday EVER

Two more birthday highlights to mention:
First, S&D had an extra special gift for me today ... may I introduce Chili:



She's the first "plushie" S has ever made (D did help, but from what he's told me, she gets all the credit for designing it and shares a lot in the execution). They stuffed it with coffee beans, so it smells really good.
AND
The mom-in-laws final pressie arrived for me today ... it was from my ESTY wish list.

This is Bubo:

Bubo was created by Janell M. Berryman of Pumpkinseeds Originals ... I simply adore Bubo! If you like what you see, check out her ETSY store (last I checked two other lumpy's - Peep & Howie - were still available)


It's way past my bedtime and it's a school night and I need some beauty sleep, so I'm off.
Ciao! ~M~

I'm so late getting here but a belated Happy Birthday. It seems as if you had a terrific celebration and lots of goodies. Bubo is so cute! And I love the plushie fish stuffed with coffee beans. I'm sure that smells delicious!

Congrats to all the winners, too.

The plushy is very cool - and the fact that is smells like coffee just makes it even better!

I adore owls...do you think we might be twins or soul-sisters or something? We have so much in common...

This is great! I thought some how the sale was related but was unsure. AND I didn't want to blow a surprise. So I was quiet :) Glad he ended up with you. And thank you for the sweet post. OH and of course, happy belated birthday!!!
