Birthday Gift

Sometimes the best gifts come from the flea market. We celebrated my 28th birthday last night with my family and my parents got me this cake stand:

I have always wanted one of these. I'm talking like since I first saw them in probably junior high. I love this color green and I love cake stands. Love this!!

On another note, I have a CSNstores review coming up. I've searched their 200+ stores (hey, someone had to do it!) :) and have come up with something to help me in our guest bathroom.
I can't wait for you to see it! It involves new lighting! Also, I'll be using some birthday money to buy some fabric for a shower curtain. Hopefully I can get the ball rolling in this room. :) I'm excited to get it finished! I'm going to a party tonight that will be soooo fun. It is a gender reveal party for one of my best friends! I can't wait to share all those details with you too!! Have a wonderful rest of the week!

I hope you had a great birthday...I'm new to your blog. Popped over from Katie's. That cake stand is darling. I got one for my wedding that has a lid, and it doubles as a punch bowl...I love that thing.

Happy birthday! 28! My grandmother used to give me a dollar for every year. Too bad that seemed to stop a while ago. I'll be 35 this month--I could do some serious thrifting on 35 dollars!

Love the cake stand! And those cookies on it!!

Happy Birthday to you! The cake stand is beautiful. I've never seen one that color. You will have to place some delicious cakes on it regularly.
