Happy Birthday To Me...Cotton N Candy and Pretty stuff too.

Well...i dont really see any cause to celebrate getting OLDER so i have re-named today....it is now Happy Present Receiving Day. Oh thats sooo much better.
And in sadness of me turning YIKES, 35 !! i decided to be a big poser and lovo and try and get an updated pic of myself. Yes its all very lovey dovey but who cares, i feel old and frumpy and i wanted a nice photo !
So this is me standing under the Birthday streamers (left over from Dads birthday on sunday) in my front room.

NOW....imagine my surprise this morning when i get an email from Lori telling me to pop by her blog..... Awww she did a special and awesomely sweet Birthday post for me. She is just too gorgeous and i love her bunches and bunches. Im sure she knows that and i am so honoured and glad to be her friend :)
ANYHOO my mum, sis and my 4 nieces came over for lunch and we always giggle like idiots when we are together, which i just love.
Here are some of my prezzies for the day.My family all know just what i like.

Oh and lets not forget the SHANNON NOLL CD. YEAH BABY!!!!!
Lori look at that wrapping paper, little kitty cats with pink Tiara's TOOOO SWEET (my GORGEOUS cushion from my sneaky and gorgeous mum and stepdad was wrapped in it).

I feel spoilt and loved and i thank all of you who left Birthday comments and emailed me too. This is my first bloggin' birthday and i am totally warm and fuzzy inside now :)

Now...could this not have been timed any better????
My COTTON N CANDY SWAP from non other than Miss Dolly @ From My Cherry Heart arrived this morning. YIPPEEEEEE Candy for breakfast!
Where do i start with all the goodies....i feel soooo spoilt. Dolly even included a special lil' parcel for Sam. He was so wrapt!
Heres some piccies for you all to OOH and AHH over.

My Gorgy-Pie parcel arrived complete with a Cherry on top in true Dolly style.

Ohhh i wonder whats wrapped up in all that pretty pink paper and hankies??????

Ah Haa. lots of pretties and lots of yummies too....oooh where do i start??Check out those paper gloves that Dolly made!! Beautiful or what! AND real true American COTTON CANDY, oh i am sooo eating all of that!

Sam started right away eating some of his special Candy from Dolly.

Thankyou so much Dolly i love it all. You are so clever and you know me so well. I am over the moon with my prezzies. LUV YOU BUNCHES.

Ok thats it from me today. I am off to eat more CANDY yumm yumm and chill out with my boys.

Shannon, I think those photos of Matthew and Brendan are the reason you made that sexy new picture aren't they??? O.K. I'm going bonkers, all your presents are GORGOUS!!! Tell me about the cuppie plates and the 3 little pots!!! Darn I'm getting mad, Mum's package isn't there yet???I wonder if it's cause of the box size? Let me know if it hasn't arrived by Thursday cause that will be 14 days!!!! Oh am curious to what happened with your birthday grump, you know what I mean. Remember I had the same on mine!Sam looked so precious today too! Well enjoy your goodies and try to have fun! All my love, Lori
