Christmas for my birthday... ;)

I love going to the Christmas Tree Shops when I go south of the border. Not because I love Christmas, but because of all the great deals that shop offers! I love to bake, cook and decorate so that place is a dream!! And so cheap too! :) So, for my birthday, Ben patiently went through the store with me and listened to my excited screams that I wanted this, this and that...!!! What a guy!! :)


Here are some of the stuff I bought to myself for my birthday: a birthday cake pan
A little cake stand - so I had to bake some muffins!! ;)
A beautiful plate that says Home Sweet Home Muffin pan for Spring
And this I bought somewhere else - a giant cupcake pan to bake a cake - can't wait to try it!!
It has been a great birthday - today I took it easy, baked some muffins, made a soup and just enjoyed my day! My dad called me from Australia (where he is on vacation) this morning to wish me "bonne fête" - merci papa!! Je vous aime!! xoxo

I just had to comment on your Burlington trip. We lived in Vermont for many years just outside of Burlington. You should go in the summer when all the stree cart vendors are out on Church Street selling their wares and all the cafes and restaurants have their outdoor dining open. It's a wonderful city and I miss it immensely!
