    Cool 50 yrs > 50 days > 50 gifts

    Yesterday I turned 50 .... and 50 days ago my DH started giving me a gift every morning.
    So ...for 50 days, I received a gift every day!!!!
    It was actually quite nice to be spoiled like this!!
    He kept it up for the full 50 days ...and I am quite impressed with his choices ...!
    I have everything I could possibly want, and don't need anything, so usually .... I ask for nice soaps and bubble bath etcetera, as gifts ... so ......
    Most of the gifts were my usual request, but for some of the days he bought sewing notions .... I can just imagine him standing in the quilt shop trying to figure out what I would like ...!
    I think he made some wonderful choices ....just love the two rulers in the back and the pink cutting mat on the right!!
    And my DIL baked me a sewing machine cake!!!

    I just read this to my husband and he said, "I have to write that guy a letter and tell him to quit screwing it up for the rest of us." LOL!

    You must be a great wife. Men don't just act like this without the right environment. Happy Birthday to a sew sweet gal! By regardless of that ... What a great guy.

    Happy Birthday. I agree with all that you have a great hubby and I bet you deserve it. Sorry about the pictures I tried to post something and could not get the pictures to load either :-(. Wonder if anyone has a suggestion.

    How sweet! I don't remember my 50th and it hasn't been that long ago. You will always remember yours that's for sure.
