A Birthday Surprise

I took a day off from work for my birthday recently. I decided to spend the afternoon with my mom, having lunch, shopping, whatever we felt like doing.

Mom and I went to a great place for lunch called the Butterfly Garden which has a location inside Dolfingers (also one on Bardstown Road). If you get a chance to eat there, the food is really great. As we looked around the store while waiting for our table, I picked up an etched dragonfly glass that was really cool. I was saving my money for Frankfort Avenue shopping so I didn't buy it. Several days later we met my parents for dinner and mom presented me with a beautifully packaged gift, which confused me as she had already given me my birthday gift. Inside the beautiful box was a set of four of the etched dragonfly glasses. I stuck the ribbon inside so you can see the etching more clearly.

What a great surprise! To think my mom went back to get these was so special.
I love these!

Here is a cool Gallapalooza horse we saw when we were shopping on Frankfort Avenue. I love spotting these horses all over town. Someday I'd like to make one myself.

Flowering Tea

My friend and coworker Cathy, gave me this great gift for Christmas. And since I am a little busy these days, it has taken me awhile to play with this great gift. (hangs head)

How cool is this? The tea is compressed into a little ball and it blooms in hot water. There are several different versions included in the set that she gave me. Can't wait to play with the others.

This is so much better than the Sea Monkeys I had as a kid!

The flavor is green jasmine tea. Ahhh!
