But it's funny what people will do when they feel sorry for you all piled up in bed with a bad back, or if it's your birthday!
So my friend Kenny that I introduced ya'll to the other day drove all the way out here just to wish me a Happy Birthday!
(And to get the gift that I bought him while I was in Europe. I'm just saying is all.)
Kenny loved what we had done with the place since the last time he was in Crazyville. (Eight years ago...but who is counting?)
I was very excited to see him, so I immediately started taking pictures.
Kenny is the sweetest friend; look at this birthday cake he
He knows how I like my daisies.....Covered in sugar and on top of a cake!:)
After a few minutes of picture taking and talking, we got down to business.
That's right; we started exchanging gifts.
I made Kenny go first. (Since he drove all the way out here and everything.)
You are probably asking yourself,"What is that? A wooden chicken?"
Well, you are exactly right. It is a wooden toy chicken.
(Or as Kenny called it, a Christmas ornament.)
There is a really funny story and reason behind why I would bring him a wooden toy chicken back from Italy, but as you all know, Kenny does not like it when I ramble too long. So unfortunately, I will not be able to tell you that story today. But, if I get enough inquiries concerning the chicken story, then I will do a separate post. That way Kenny won't fall asleep as he reads this one.
(Ya'll have to remember, he is forty.)
Oh, ladies, don't be haters. We can't all have Peanut M&M Pirate key chains.
Then he gave me a
I was tickled to death with everything, then he says, "You haven't even got your real birthday present yet."
I wasn't sure what he meant, then he showed me the bag.
It was a gift bag that appeared to have three bags of plain M&Ms (my favorite candy) in it. I noticed that the M&Ms were all pink, blue, and white (my favorite colors).
But then I looked at them a little closer......
I saw that some of them said, "Happy Birthday!"
Some of them said, "39 years young."
And then Shannon's favorite, "Still Hot!" ;)
But then I noticed a different one.
It didn't have words on it.
It had a picture on it.
So I took a closer look.
It was then that I realized......
It was my picture!
My picture on M&Ms!
Three whole bags of them.
Well, I felt, practically famous.
I never in my wildest dreams would ever think that my face would be on an M&M.
After Kenny left to
Thank you, Kenny, for coming all the way out to Crazyville to
