So Shabby Pink Happy for Another Year

Well, I am blessed to have had another birthday! I am always grateful for each and every year I live. My mother died rather young and I just don't take birthdays for granted.

I always want shrimp for special days. So, we made some shrimp and shrimp and shrimp kabobs and survived grilling in this awful Texas heat wave.

My family and I have reached that point where we ask, "What can I get them?" so we have resorted to food! My sister sent me all these goodies from Whole Foods Grocery in Georgia.

AHH! My favorite! My husband made me a yellow cake with chocolate icing. He was kind and didn't put candles on it.

Now that July 4th and my birthday are over, it's time to go back to work! It is so hot here in Texas though, that I just don't want to get out in the garage to paint. It was 103 degrees at 6:30 pm tonight. I will be glad when this high pressure system moves away from the state of Texas!
I often paint standing at the kitchen counter during these summer days! This does slow me down a bit, I must say but it beats the alternative.
My husband built this nice solid wood box for me when I was making soap. It was supposed to be a soap mold but I never used it. It is now a great holder for wash clothes or personal items on your romantic vanity.

Hope you stop by our website, So Shabby Pink. We have some great new things coming.....
Thanks for stopping by,

Happy belated B-Day! This meal looks delicious, especially that chocolate cake. If it isn't chocolate why bother in my book!
