Last month, I purchased a pattern to knit a Panda for my daughter, Sarah. She loves Pandas and since I can rarely find her one at the store that she likes, I decided to make one myself. It took a little time as I have never knitted a toy before and I wasn't sure what the endeavor would take to complete. As I knitted each part, the Panda began to take shape and Sarah would be excited because she knew her Panda would soon be hers to play with. I spent all day yesterday and at 8:30 PM, Plum, the name Sarah chose for her, was finished.

Yes, it's my Birthday. This year's celebration actually began yesterday with Jason and the kids presenting me with cards and a Celtic Carnation necklace that Jason ordered special from Ireland. I love it so much!!
We had a Pizza Night followed by the Chocolate Strawberry Cake that Jason baked for me. Everything about yesterday was amazing!!
This morning I woke up and decided that Today was mine to do what I wanted. I decided to get a tattoo. I nearly got one on my 18th Birthday years ago, but the only Tattoo Shop in a 50 mile radius had to close early (before I got there) due to a family emergency. I took it as a sign that maybe a tattoo was a bad idea and I never went back. Until today...
I went by my Mom's house to drop of Sarah so my friend April and I could have lunch followed by my tattooing. My mom gave me a nice card that played the song "My Girl", a bouquet of flowers and a Celtic Cross Necklace. It is so beautiful and I really love it! When I got to April's she gave me a nice butterfly figurine that lights up and changes colors. Very nice. We then went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch, then it was time to go the Tattoo place. I got butterflies in my stomach, which was so profound considering that I got a butterfly tattoo. I was nervous, but once it started I was fine and since there was very little pain, I really had fun. April, the Tattoo Artist and I talked and laughed the 30 minutes that the tattoo took to apply. When I finally saw it, I was so happy that it turned out so well. As you can see, it's wonderful!!
Now I am back home and I'm making dinner. I'm going to relax and watch 24 tonight. An excellent Birthday indeed!!
