Gifts being bestowed upon the Queen

Happy birthday to me! I'm right smack dab in the middle of the gift bestowing festivities. Last week was the wedding anniversary, birthday today and then Mother's Day on Sunday.

Here's what I'm getting for one of my gifts. I know cuz I bought it. I saw this Vera Wang handbag at Kohl's a week and a half ago, it was on sale for $35 and liked it. I went to Kohl's yesterday to see if it was still on sale. It wasn't. It was on clearance! Woo-hoo! And I had a 15% off coupon, plus a store credit (After Christmas, I returned something that I received as a gift that wasn't my style - the person who gifted it to me doesn't read my blog). So my $79 handbag cost $3.86 out of pocket.

Love my new handbag - its so huge. You know I love storage. It's what I call a "big mother purse". A few years ago, when I when I visited my niece at the University of Vermont, my sister and I were commenting that we could easily be mistaken for co-eds ourselves (given our youthful looks) but our "big mother purses" were giving us away.

The day is just getting better and better - my boyfriend David Cassidy sent me a special email. I didn't think he would remember, but he did. I can't tell you what it says, it's personal.
