I put my hair in pig tails to prove I was still a child inside.
First time getting my hair cut in BC ~ "Rose" was wonderful and I think she gave me a nice cut. I told her the problem areas others with her expertise had encountered on my mane. We used my DQ Birthday coupons for blizzards.
My eldest, wearing my circa 1984 A & W hat, the shirt we found at SMAC ~ In DQ of course!
We like to be ourselves and express our individuality!
Forever Frugal ~ we asked for the empty mini blizzard cup so she could share the cheaper-by-size-medium Cookie Dough with her "bestest buddy"
After her digestive enyzmes, this gal was ready to dig in!
Sadly, this was the best picture of me with my new hair do and eating a beloved treat...ha ha
And of course my children thought that was funny ~ or that I am worth laughing at! ha ha
My gifts...some much needed new Oven Mitts from a sweet sis/bro in law (they even have grippers on them), the last cook book for my series "Icebergs & Beluga's" and Dymond Lake seasoning from a sweet Mom in law, the crockpot from my Mom and myself (don't ask what happened to the other one from a different birthday...ha ha)
Now why is it that we women tend to get kitchen related presents? Well, it is practical, and I do use them lots and it is annoying and dangerous to burn yourself without proper oven mitts. It was a nice haul and I am happy to use my new things.
My inlaws did some work for these people at their Northern lodge past Churchill, MB Canada. They have great recipes that always turn out and recipes for "weird" things, like moose, elk, deer, grouse, etc. too!
A sticky gooey mess, that I did NOT have to clean up afterwards ~ a good belated birthday to me!
