Thank you, babe, for such a fun & yummy birthday! Now, we need to work it all off. There was cake, tarts, croissants, chips & salsa, a margarita, and coffees!!! YIKES! There was also handholding and walking, laughing, and fun. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hear there may be a little more gluttony this weekend.

I had such a sweet day! ?

  1. OH MY! I got on to link my thank you notes, saw my picture, and was like, what is that there for (it was before I began reading) and I WON! How exciting. So I’ll add to my thankful list this week – my lovely gifts!!! Thank you so much! What a nice way to begin the weekend! I was telling my daughter how cool this idea was of yours to have the guessing game. It breaks up the other giveaways everyone else does. Loved the idea!!

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ BTW I adore that picture of you! I’m so glad you enjoyed the giveaway and WON!! Great guessing, Michelle!!

  2. Oooh you had me at the candy corn! That has got to be one of my favorite candies, and I don’t even like candy. And you are all pumpkin’d out, perfect for the season ๐Ÿ™‚ Reminds me, I should make some pumpkin pie soon!

  3. Congrats to Michelle, what a fun giveaway contest idea! You are so generous, Dean =) And I want to say happy belated birthday, I’m glad it was sweet for you! I love reading your thank you notes (and every post, really lol!) Your pictures rock, too. Can’t wait to catch up. xo

  4. Maybe I came close with the candy corn guess! Maybe!
    I love that Google made you look even more special to your kids.
    Also, where’s your husband’s mustache??

    1. Sort of ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe next time ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I’m sure the mustache will make a comeback next month. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. That sounds like a yummy birthday celebration! I think on your birthday you are entitled to eat whatever you feel like ๐Ÿ™‚ (On my birthday I had some crazy caramel/vanilla pudding/banana pancake concoction and my first PSL of the season!)
    Congrats to Michelle. I think it’s awesome that you had a virtual candy corn guessing contest. I haven’t done something like that in years!

    1. When I was writing out all the gluttony that took place I thought… I’m The Very Hungry Caterpillar!!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Oh my gawsh your crazy caramel/vanilla pudding/banana pancake concoction sounds amazeballs!!!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the guessing jar, I should do it for spring… jelly beans or winter… peppermint discs? ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Look at that Google page for you! Haha love it! I’m glad that you had a great birthday!
    I love pumpkin everything also, that is one of the best perks of Fall am I right? I just had my first pumpkin spice latte this past weekend and it was delicious. I forgot how much I loved them! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Google stalks me hard, so the least they can do is give me some b-day love. ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought it was awesome that they did that. ๐Ÿ™‚
      PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN!! Lately, I have been ordering Americanos with a pump of pumpkin in it. ๐Ÿ™‚
