What's my question Tuesday



How in the world did I get so lucky? 

How does little me Claudie,

 in little wee Plantagenet, 

make such a 

deep connection with 

 blogging friends?


Look what came in the mail.

Never in a million years did I

EVER think this could 

happen over the internet.

I would't even TOUCH a

 computer till 2001.


Ten short years later, here I am receiving special gifts in the mail,

just because.


My very dear friend Jeanne @ 

sent this to me for my Birthday.


It's the cutest apron. 

SO SO ME.


You see she knows I don't cook, 

so how 'apropos' is this?


She KNOWS I love my fur babies, cuz you know, I have 7.


She KNOWS I'd rather sleep late and have cheesecake.


She knows I LOVE to SHOP.


And she knows I ADORE Xmas.


So here I am Jeanne, yes still in my P.J.'s, with my booties on.

Doesn't the apron look cute? Doesn't it match my little kitchen?

 No make-up, no sleep, bed head...

So what? 

DON'T click on the picture girls. 

  (I know you will, I just know it).


again.


A rose for you, from my heart to yours sweet 

Jeanne, 

from my home to yours.

I love you.

Oh Claudie Sweetie...
I clicked, yes I know, I clicked. I just had to do it. Yep, you are just as beautiful as can be. You look precious sweet one. I love this post.

How wonderful of Jean to send you such a gorgeous apron, and it does look marvelous on you sweet one. I love the critter and the polka dots most of all. Does it get any better than this? Love those slippers as well. I have a little dark pair. Missed out on the pink.

Loved this post. Thank you for the smile sweet friend. I so love to come by for a breath of fresh air. You so make my heart "Happy".

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Claudie, I tried to leave a comment the other day, but for some reason, blogger wouldn't let me. GO figure!

I think that apron is PERFECT for you. I mean PERFECT! It is so cute, and I agree, blog friends are the best.

I'm thinking of you as I get ready for Lindsay and her family who are visiting this weekend from England! Wish you were here with us. It's been kind of wild with the tree mess, but things will settle down. It's just life. LOL!

I have a very funny video I want you to see if you get the chance. I got so tickled when I saw it that I wanted to share it with everyone. It's a hoot. I think I might just go out and do this in a store, and then watch it go viral!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Good morning Claudie, I sure have a great big smile on my face. Thank you so much for the shout out today. I am so glad you loved your apron. When I saw it nearly a year ago I put it away for you. Then when I wanted to send it for your birthday I couldn't find where I stashed it. SO ME!!! It was in my closet. Horrors!!!
Maybe I'll clean my closet. That is a good two days. HA! You look so darn cute in the apron in your the most fun ever, kitchen. Can't wait to see it in person. Can't wait to see YOU and the blogging friends too.

My cousin Marilyn is back. This has been the year of the 'cousins'. I have one week to leave for LA. I need some me time. They are leaving the same day I am. Did I tell you? My darling friend of 52 years is getting married again to her high school sweetheart. I am going to be there!!!

Gotta run it is Bill's breakfast time. He is a spoiled man!
Love you to pieces,
Jeanne

Oh Claudie! I shudder to think of all the pink and fabulosity I have missed since I haven't been around!!

I looked at the photo of you handling the rope for the airboat when Capt Josh had to...well you know, and knew I just had to get back in touch with you! And how perfect when you had just gotten a sweet gift from Jeanne, our mutual buddy!!

You crack me up gal! I did click on the photo...but not to see you without make-up...but to see that incredible kitchen of yours!!!
You are one of those women that are pretty much adorable no matter what!!! UGH! LOL!!

Sending love and hugs to you!
And Happy Birthday wishes! Too bad you're not in Florida again this year!! All the best to you sweetie!

HUGS!!
Becky
