New Year and Birthday!

So my birthday was Monday, the 31st. The plan for the day was to go see my mom after my own dr appointment. It did not go as planned. At the drs office my blood pressure was very high so I was sent to the birth place for monitoring and lab work. I was there for about two hours and everything was fine. I decided to treat myself to a chicken wrap at chik fil a and then headed over to Joann fabrics to check out the sale.

Since we got our new couch, I can no longer use an end table or the table light I had on it. I've been searching for a good deal on a floor model and I found it at Joann's. Since it was my birthday, I decided to treat myself to this $300 ott lite on sale for $99! Plus, I also got myself this super cute sewing box to keep in the living room to store my current project. With the arrival of the couch and soon to be baby all my stitching stuff now resides in a corner of our bedroom, nicely stored and sorted.

My wonderful husband treated me a prenatal massage at a lovely day spa, plus gave me some other delightful and thoughtful gifts that I LOVE!

After a birthday dinner at a local restaurant, we watched crazy people on tv at Times Square and I started a new stitching project. Barnwood Buttons by Rosewood Manor. I am using 32 ct fabric from Picture This Plus called Mystic. It's a lovely dark blue that will really show off the light colored thread and pretty buttons.

My mother is doing well even though she is still in the hospital. We are hoping she finally comes home today and again, I am very thankful for all the prayers and well wishes I have received for her on my blog.
