42nd Birthday with Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #211!

Yesterday was my birthday! I turned 42. I figured that since I gave you Amanda's age when it was her birthday on Tuesday that I should do the same. We had such a busy day that I couldn't post my weekend blog hop on Friday like I usually do. It is called "Make My Saturday Sweet," so, in a since, it's still on time!

It was a day of being spoiled and it started with a yummy breakfast and birthday cards and presents. It was also a day filled with other responsibilities, including Amanda not being well and staying home from school. I also began wearing a moon boot for the first time, which the doctor says I will have to wear for about 6 months. The ligament in my foot and my Achilles tendon have not been healing, so this will hopefully do the trick!

Birthday Cards

This birthday card from my mother-in-law says, "I didn't
have time to bake you a cake so you'll have to make it
yourself... You can thank me later!"

This card was from Amanda

She turned 9 on Tuesday and got a new game, Cluedo.
She took a new character from there when she wrote
this card: Happy Birthday Mom! I hope you have a
wonderful day. Dr. Orchid gave you a little present
for you. I hope you enjoy your present. XXOO
(Check out Amanda's Birthday here!)

This is one of my orchids and the orchid food
is the present from Dr. Orchid (aka Amanda).

This was my birthday present from Robbie,
but the box was empty! Why?

He surprised me with waffles for breakfast!

Another gift from Robbie that I still need to try:
Cape Velvet Cream - Original Cream Liqueur
(You can tell that I have a sweet tooth!)

Me, sporting the moon boot
for the first time
