Yesterday was my best friend's birthday. I was so honored that what she wanted to do on her actual day was just come over with her son and hang out with us. Eileen is such a great best friend. She almost became my sister- in- law (engaged to my husbands brother) but that didn't work out. It is okay. Her and her son will always be family to us.
I got some chocolate wine for the occasion and it was delicious. I am afraid I am hooked.
Chantel made a "sign" in the driveway before Eileen came to welcome her.
Janae came over and brought Eileen these gorgeous orange roses. Eileen's favorite color.
She had a weird request for her birthday "cake". She wanted me to make my double layer pumpkin pie. You can find the recipe here. Everybody loves this pie so I wasn't too surprised she chose that.
I have known Eileen for something like 10 years. We met at a scrapbooking store. We were both attracted to each others scrapbooking abilities. I knew immediately I wanted to make friends with her. I feed off her creative abilities. She is the most creative person I know. She is the kind of friend who is always there. When Gage had to have double hip surgery, she was at the hospital everyday bringing me my favorite foods, and supplies to work on projects when I was bored. That is the kind of friend she is. She volunteers feeding the homeless and taking pet food to seniors who need food for their pets. She is the kind of person everybody wants in a best friend!

She has a son, Griffin, who is right at the same age as my 3 youngest. He is the light of her life.
On another note..I am so enjoying my new ruffled table runner. Isn't it fun when something you make makes you happy? Also, I wasn't liking the cheap plastic eggs on my bunny. Janae suggested putting tulle on them to make them look prettier and tone down the bright colors.. She was so right! I think they look great now.
Thanks for visiting!
