HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.



 LET'S GO BACK A YEAR ON THIS DAY.
MY 54TH PINK BIRTHDAY BASH 
IN ST. AUGUSTINE, FLA.
A PINK PARTY MONTH THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET, EVER.
MRS MAGPIE WAS THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS.
A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION LIKE NO OTHER.
THE SETTING WAS BREATHTAKING, THE GUESTS WERE SMASHING. 
I BROUGHT THESE LITTLE CHICKS FROM CANADA.
LOOK AT MY PINK WINE GLASS.
I TRULY DID FEEL LIKE A PRINCESS, ACTUALLY MORE LIKE A QUEEN.
DOES THE QUEEN DO THIS? I BET SHE DOES WHEN NOBODY'S LOOKING ;)
MRS. MAGPIE MADE US ALL LOOK LIKE PRETTY PINK FLOWERS. WE EVEN HAD PINK GARDENING GLOVES.
"ARGhh" HE SAID TO MY FRIEND JULIE AND I... UMMM, YOU DON'T LOOK ANYTHING LIKE JOHNNY DEPP MR.
MY VERY SWEET FRIEND JEANNE FROM BACKYARD NEIGHBOUR WAS THERE TO HELP CELEBRATE MY DAY.
TERESA FROM CHERRY CHECKERS WAS ALSO WITH US.
JULIE AND I CALL HER DAISY DUKE.
Miss Bee couldn't make it, so she sent me this Party Animal in her place. Rock it baby! OTHER WONDERFUL GUESTS WERE THERE TOO. I LOVE THEM ALL.

SOME OF THE PRECIOUS GIFTS FROM ALL MY DEAR BLOGGING FRIENDS THAT I MET FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME... CAN YOU IMAGINE? I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES.
I ACTUALLY NEEDED A HUGE PINK RUBBERMAID TO BRING ALL THESE TREASURES HOME WITH ME. THANK GOODNESS FOR RANDY'S BIG BLUE TRUCK HE LET JULIE AND I USE IT FOR OUR TRIP DOWN SOUTH.
THANKS HUN.
TAKE A PEEK AND SEE HOW MUCH LOVE WENT INTO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE GIFTS. 
LOOK AT THIS PINK ROSE PILLOW FROM CC, AND THE POODLE PURSE.
SO MANY TREASURES.
CC SENT ME A FABULOUS PINK COAT THIS YEAR. I'LL POST THAT ONE NEXT WEEK. 


 WHO DOES THINGS LIKE THAT? I'LL TELL YOU WHO... WONDERFUL, GREAT, BEAUTIFUL BLOGGING FRIENDS, THAT'S WHO.

SOMETHING ELSE CAME IN THE MAIL THIS WEEK.
YOU KNOW THE SWEET SPENCER FROM BELLEMERE COTTAGE? SHE MADE ME THIS LITTLE PINK ♡, BECAUSE SHE WANTED ME TO HAVE A PIECE OF HER ♡ IN MY LITTLE PINK COTTAGE.
BLESS YOUR ♡ MISS SPENCER. WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

WELL I JUST CAN'T WAIT TILL NEXT SATURDAY TO SHOW YOU MY LOVELY PINK JACKET FROM MY GIRLFRIEND 
CHECK THIS OUT.HOW DID SHE KNOW AGAIN? 
HOW DID SHE KNOW?

SHE KNOWS.


IT GOES WITH MY NEW PINK PURSE.
THANK YOU CC. I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK, AGAIN A MILLION TIMES OVER.
THANK YOU FOR JOINING TOBY AND I ON THIS BEAUTIFUL SUNNY PINK DAY HERE IN OUR COTTAGE.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR BIRTHDAY WISHES HERE ON MY BLOG AND ON FB.
YOU TRULY ARE THE BEST.

One lady that I know you know is the 
SWEET PINK FRANCIE.
 She is a DOLL.
THANK YOU MISS BEVERLY FOR THIS PERFECT PINK SATURDAY.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Claudie,

I would willingly do it again tomorrow if you want to fly down here. I have the cutest cloth on the table right now, and it's pink (among other colors)! It was a pleasure to do this for you, and I miss you this year. Sigh. Wish you were here.

Have been thinking about what you said, and due to current circumstances, you are probably right. Will talk more later. Just wanted to come by and wish you a very Happy Birthday.

Love you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

And I am sure this birthday will be spectacular for you as well...at least I HOPE SO.
CC sent you that coat???!!! It is gorgorific (new word) Totally YOU!! She is an angel for sure. Can't wait to meet her.

Hey, I tried to call you today, but just chatted with Randy instead, wanted to see "what's cooking". Hope your mom is doing better.
I"LL CALL YOUR TOMORROW!!! It's not exactly a pink coat, but hey, you now I love ya!!!

You know my friend... you Reap what You Sow and the fact of the matter is that you put a lot of love out to your friends, and it shows by how much they love you back. Your enthusiasm for life is one of the best I have ever seen, bar none.

You really deserve mountains and mountains and PINK mountains of love!

Happy Birthday my lovely lovely, very lovely friend.

Cheers

Happy Birthday, Claudie! Loved seeing the recap of the big party last year. That Ms. Magpie does know how to throw a party. You look fantastic. Love the new pink jacket!
I've been scrolling down to catch up on previous posts I've missed. I don't get to visit as often as I'd like. LIFE seems to get in the way.

Jeanne said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwww back. I love your post and reliving your birthday again. I'm glad you are enjoying your birthday today. "You're Beautiful" This song is the perfect Claudie song. A great choice.

Isn't life amazing? Before blogging who would have ever thought that we would meet so many beautiful dear friends on our computers. I cherish our friendship Claudie and I know there are many Bloggers who know you feel the same as me. Life is good, especially if it is pink!!! BEVERLY PINK!!! She really brought so many Bloggers together with a simple idea of celebrating pink! I say go pink forever! The PINK Jacket, Ooh La La CC is a darling person and I am looking forward to meeting her. Deborah's party animal is a perfect gift in her absence. So many loving gifts for a special birthday girl.

Time to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY DEAR FRIEND! Enjoy every minute of your day.

Love you to pieces,
Jeanne xoxoxo
