#77 Follow Up On Birthday Milestones

Thought I would give you a short update on my 50th Birthday!! And an update on our little miracle boy, who just turned 1!! (our meaning my best friends little sweetie, I just claim him, while I wait for grandkids, lol)

As you may know I turned 50 a couple of weeks ago and made an online celebration of it with the help of some of my favourite shops. (check previous post for all the details and the winners names are now posted) I thought I would give you some of the party highlights, and pictures.

My daughter went all out and with the help of my husband and 2 sons and some great friends gave me a perfect celebration!! Starting with the theme of the party....quilting... perfection!!!

The table was decorated, in my favourite colour purple, with FQs, tulle bobbins, buttons, and a measuring tape....along with fabric roses.

Circles hung on the wall covered with scrapbook paper that looked like fabric.

...and because of my food intolerances, a fabulous fabric cake, Amanda spent hours making. The 50 was a pair of party (sun)glasses, glad she snapped the arms off and used them on the cake, lol!!
 I still have it sitting in my kitchen. Eventually I will take it apart and make something with all the FQ but not yet, all that hard work needs to be admired just a bit longer.

Dinner was fantastic forgot to take any pictures... we did have dessert, and it was so amazing looking I grabbed a picture of cranberry crisp....oh so yummy (can you tell I like dessert, lol)

From 50 to 1, another Milestone

As some of you who follow my blog will know, my friend Kellie had a little miracle, just over a year ago now. You can read the previous posts here and here, if you are new to my blog and want to catch up.
Well it is hard to believe that a year has passed already!! But it has and Caleb just celebrated his first birthday (6 days after my 50th!!) (had so hoped he would be born on my birthday!!) He is the happiest baby I have ever known and those eyes and eyelashes...... so in are a few of the pictures I took when we went to celebrate...he had his own little cake and he was liking it....a lot, lol

I know this one is a bit blurry, but it was too cute to not use!!

I'll get back to you on What I've been Up To!!

Thanks again everyone for making my birthday so much fun!!


  1. What a celebration! A great way to start the next 50 years. Congratulations. Caleb is so cute. Those eyes and eyelashes are heart stoppers. He is going to have to be very diligent to keep the girls (and moms) at bay.

  2. The table setting is awesome and your daughter made an amazing cake, I can see why it would be hard to 'cut in to'.

    And yes, what a Ham...

  3. Super table settings, great cake, and Caleb, this is wonderful to see him healthy and happy,

  4. Great pics and glad you had an awesome party!

  5. looks like you and your little friend had wonderful birthday's

  6. i am so happy you have terrific family and friends to surround you on your special day, and even little Caleb's birthday so close to yours to be able to celebrate it together. Happy Birthday again....
