On Wednesday, my sister Diann took me out to lunch at Mickey Finn's and then we went out to see a fun movie 27 Dresses. Her themed gifts to me were a huge hit: everything related to the game of Scrabble with crossword clues. Clever, clever, clever!
Five cousins gathered with us on Friday night at Lou Malnati's. (Well, only three of them are "blood" cousins, but the more the merrier!) On Saturday, 7 of us went to the Art Institute in Chicago. L to R: Wes, Timi, Andrew, Picasso Strummer, Duane, Diann and Ryan.
John drove out to our hometown from Chicago to surprise me for my birthday today. Earlier in the week he had arranged for flowers and a card to be delivered here! It's what every Mom hopes for someday, and this year it happened for me!
My last visitor of the week, Anne, came in with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a sweet little raspberry cake, a magazine and just look at her with her freshly shorn haircut! (She donated her locks to Wigs for Kids.) With her radiant smile and happy disposition she lights up a room!
A busy week, to be sure, but one that brought a whole lotta love my way...thanks, everybody! I love you!
