Birthday’s, Hair, & Handbags

In PAJNSTL Land we celebrate birthdays a bit differently than other households. My B-day is on the 15th of this month, however I start celebrating on the 1st. Each day leading up to my actual b-day, the hubby gives/does something special for me. Let’s take last year… I got everything from cards & books to a new bedroom set. Soooo… With that said…

DAY 1…I woke up to a Smiley Face B-day card, (for my Boondocks fans… He wrote “cuz b*tchez luv smiley faces”)I LMAO!!!! And he also fixed me a pancake and egg breakfast. Not bad for Day 1. lol

I did my S.I.L’s hair yesterday.

Annnndddd I made my very 1st handbag!!!! whoo-hooo!!!!! I found this pattern on DIYnetwork. It took me about 5hrs from start to finish. The yarn is called Tangerine, found it in Wally World’s Clearance(a.k.a Clarence)bin.

sidenote… when I’m in the stores with the hubby instead of telling ERR’BODY I’m cheap and going look at the clearance racks… I say to hubby (Oh! I see CLARENCE over in the corner, lemme go say hi) crazy huh? LOL SO! :P)

The buttons are just 2 regular ole Navy buttons. I like blue and orange together. I’m thinking of going buy some really pretty retro patterned material to line the inside, I think it will really make it chichi-foofoo. And all ladies love chichi-foofoo!

    See…there you go making clutches now…you could probably have a garage sale with just the items you have made in the past 30 days. And I am not telling you happy birthday until the 15th *sticks out tongue*

    Clarence is my ace too!

    I been thinking about cutting my hair off for the past few weeks (only cause Im slighly stressed) For some reason when the hair gets cut so does the stress, However, YOU DONT LIVE IN CALI. Im depressed. lol

    I also celebrate my Birthday the WHOLE month of March but my birthday is at the end of the month. Every weekend there is a party, get together, lunc/ dinner dates or some form of celebeation till the big day. I love it! Hope you are enjoying your special treatment.

    And I agree. Bitches love smilies. 🙂

    You are doing the birthday thing right! I also celebrate mine for an entire month. Happy Birthday btw. Love the orange on the clutch.

    I forgot what kk1 actually means. I know it’s a variation of another stitch. When I remember I’ll let you know just for gp.
