I hung out with Amber yesterday and she could NOT wait any longer to give me my birthday gifts. I was like... next week is good.... but no, she couldn't wait LOL! And now that I HAVE the gifts, I'm glad, because I LOVE THEM! I seriously can't tell you how freaking thoughtful she is with the things she got me.
I need to train Amber. She's skinny and doesn't understand THE RULES of taking photos of chubby people. LOL... she took most photos from below me, making my chin look awful. I did train her at the end lol. BUT I will say, my body looks small and I am happy about that. These are the BEAUTIFULLY wrapped gifts (Papyrus wrapping paper!!) she gave me... and I did not dress to match them on purpose, I swear. PS I like purple.
As you can see, I was pretty excited.
Look, I mean just LOOK at this gorgeous wrapping paper:
It's just lovely. I did eventually tear myself away from staring at them and actually tear them open.
My first gift was a cute little bento box! With bunnies on it!
Another gift was a cute little floral cosmetics case. I don't have a photo of it. But it fits my hard drive and cord!!!!! Yep, I'm on of those girls.
The other gifts were all HANDMADE, beautiful, amazing gifts. My thoughtful friend snooped around my Ravelry account and picked out things from my favorites so she would know I would like them. HOW SWEET is that?!
Fingerless mitts in a lovely silk-wool blend and shades of purples and greys.
The next one - two awesome potholders/trivets:
Aren't they pretty?!?!?!! Oh I just love them.
Last but not least this AMAZING herringbone scarf. It's super thick for very cold winter days (or days when I sleep at Amber's hosue! LOL)
I just love these gifts. I can't believe she made all this for me. I think I need to start planning ahead for her birthday in November!!!!!!!!!!
Ian says he has something he wants to get for me in Estes Park, so we are going up Saturday. I can't wait! I like surprises!!! And tomorrow night is birthday dinner with his family, and Saturday with my family. STEAK!!!!!! By the way.... I like steak now. And in case you didn't notice, I like purple. And birthdays. Mainly mine.
