For a Special Girl

Can you believe another week has gone by?  It's Monday and I'm off to go workout.  Grunt!  My poor body just doesn't want to do what it used to...  I used to make fun of my DH when he would get up and make that sound (if you are over 40, you probably know what I'm talking about!).  Well, to my horror, I found myself making that same noise last week.  Eeeeeek! Ha ha!!

My dinner at Olive Garden on Saturday was delish!  I saved some calories by having a 'low cal' dish, Apricot Chicken.  It really was very tasty.  You know that I was going for the full calorie version of Black Tie Mousse Cake though.  I almost didn't share it... I gave my DH a bite - hee hee!  It was soooo yummy!!!  I felt loved and appreciated as we celebrated an early Mother's Day, so all is well : )

Your card is absolutely too darn cute! I LOVE that you draped the charm from her hands! Very clever idea! Beautiful colors and the embellishments you've added are the perfect touch!

Absolutely beautiful and attaching chain with the card is very unique idea. Great colors combination you created in it. Those three flowers is my favorite and marvelous combination with leaves.
