Yesterday was my Birthday & Blog Changes

Yes - yesterday was my birthday :) It was a wonderful day. Woke up to 3 sales in my Etsy shop, and by the end of the day I had 36! What happened? Well it seems that some of my friends on Etsy decided to hold a "reverse" b-day party for me. Instead of sending my gifts - they purchased items from my shop. Crazy!! I was speechless.

Hubby did remember at breakfast to say "Happy Birthday". That's not bad - breakfast is at 5:15am! Of course he had been mentioning my birthday every day during the week - I think it was more to remind himself not to forget, like he did last year :)

Had to send the boys each a text with "Happy Birthday to Me" on it. But they are boys. This is what Luke sent me back in an email:

Isn't he just a funny boy! lol

Blog changes:
I'm going to post on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays now. It's just getting to hard to keep up with everything. I'm hoping that this way I can comment on other blogs the days I'm not blogging :) Wouldn't that be a nice change? I'm getting so bad at commenting!

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!!


  1. What a fabulous gesture from your friends to have a "reverse Birthday party" for you! 36 sales!!! That's awesome!!! Congratulations

    I'm glad to hear the hubby didn't forget this year!
    I do blog only on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays, and after my hiatus from blogging, I still find it the best way to keep it up without being overwhelmed.

  3. Happy Birthday. Wasn't that a nice present?


  4. Happy birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day. Your friends sound awesome - what a great idea to have a reverse gift! That must have been a satisfying day. :)

  5. Audrey - happy belated birthday. For some reason birthdays' aren't as important to boys (and men) unless it is their birthday of course.

  6. Happy belated birthday Audrey. What a cool idea that was with the reverse birthday party. I bet that was a neat surprise. Too funny about your sons text. Sounds like something my son would do.

  7. Happy Birthday to you and my do you ever have nice friends on Etsy. That is quite a lot of sales. Sounds like you had quite a wonderful day.

  8. Happy Birthday! It was my daughters bday, too! Hope to see you around, have fun doing some blog hoppin'!

  9. I hope you had a wonderful day, birthday girl! I think it's sweet that your etsy friends gave you so many sales. For me, that many sales in a day would be one of the best birthday presents I could get- how exciting!

  10. Happy Belated b day Audrey!

    I am glad that you are scaling down on the blogging posts, I do M-W-F and I love it!

    See you in blog land soon!
