Blogiversary 6.0

Can you believe I completely forgot to celebrate my blogiversary? I correlates along with my own birthday... and I'll tell you what. I never forget to celebrate that one!

So in celebration of blogging for 6 years, I'm running a little contest. I'm going to gift the random winner my newest ebook: Woobie Pattern Collection Series 2. You have until midnight September 25th to reply to this thread. All you have to do is tell me how you celebrate a birthday in style!

I'm pretty simple. I like to eat out, go to the show and possible hang with my knitting friends for the day. This past weekend I did all those. I even made cheese cake. Not just any cheese cake, but New York Style with cherries. Oh, it's so good and there is so much of it that it last all weekend.

Friday was my birthday and if my day-job wasn't on super-killer-stress-toxic-level-breakdown-mode then I would have taken the day off. After work we headed to Asian Harbor in Homewood. They serve all the classics but we wanted to partake in sushi. With tummies filled we had our son drive out to the grandparents house to drop Miss Mac for the weekend. The boy is getting better at driving, but still so much more to learn.

Saturday then was filled with fiber and friends. What a blast we had. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Thank you ladies for making my day special! We headed out to Morris IL where there is a yarn store called Le Mouton Rouge, which basically means Red Sheep. Just the most adorable shop. Owner is fantastic and the selection is extensive.

We then had a lovely lunch at Letty Mae's Tea Room... people, there was strawberry soup. Oh Yeah Baby! After that I came home and crashed. I love getting nap attached;)

So how do you like to spend you special day?

I'm so glad you had such a great day. I love the woobies, and have knitted the bunny three times.

I normally just celebrate my birthday at home with family and a cake my kids make for me. If I had to plan an extra special day, I'd have cheescake with cherries and ice cream. Then I'd grab a couple of friends and my daughters and head over to the yarn store to do some shopping!

Hey Kris! Happy Blogiversary!!! I hope my family celebrates my birthday with a fruit pie this year! I'd be happy with just pie... or ... an Atomic cake? LOL!
Hugs, Bethany

Cake is always involved, and usually lunch - often at Fresh Starts . Quite often a massage at the club, too!

This is an at home celebration with home made cards by my four kids and something grilled for dinner by my husband as this is his only culinary skill!!

I normally celebrate but asking for a drama free day, calm and quiet, nothing but movies all day, all my choice of course, and that's about it, but it's fun for me :-)
