My Birthday...

My birthday this year was a good one ;)
(Of course, I've never really had a bad one!)
My mom took me out to my 'favorite of all favorites'
restaurant... as my sisters call it, "Red Lawnspur"!



YUM! I got my favorite dish of lobster, scallops, and shrimp!
And mom thought it would be funny to get me a 'lawnspur' bib...




I only wore it for the photo, of course!
Afterwards, we went shopping.
I couldn't resist buying one of these

little 'chick heads' that I found
with the money I got from my gramma...



Also, at church, the assistant pastor
and his wife gave me a very cute purse.
It was very sweet and thoughtful!
Then we came home

and everyone gathered around to sing 'Happy Birthday'.



I made my cake and I think it's really good.
It's a double layer mocha chocolate cheesecake!
And since I can't eat ice cream,
I got multi-flavored sherbert!
And then I received my gifts.
It was a Jane Austin piano book! And lots of Sweettarts. ;)
I've really enjoyed playing the pieces...
and eating the pieces ;) lol

Today I received a gift from my uncle, aunt, and cousins...




My dear aunt made it for me.
They knew that I needed a real guitar strap,
since I used a rope untill now!

I really like the color of it as well!
Also, attached were some really nice picks!




It's actually much more comfortable to play with a real strap!

Today I cleaned my room from the 'vacation mess'
and did a few lessons in Calculus.
I should be done with it by next week.
I hope you all have a great week!



"Watch ye therefore: for ye know not
when the master of the house cometh, at even,
or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch."
Mark 13:35-37

Hi!

That is so funny that your sisters call Red Lobster, Red Lawnspur. My little brother calls it Red Lomster. He has never been able to say Lobster right!

I hope you really enjoy your Jane Austen Piano book. I got one for my birthday last year, and adore the music I can play.

Ally,
I just LOVE that guitar string!!!!! It's SOOOOO cute!!! I don't normally use a guitar strap when I play 'cause I don't normally stand up. I just sing with the guitar sometimes at home. Thanks for the SWEET comment!

X's & Os's,
BrittanyRose
