Today has been quite a day! Bo, Mason & I got up this morning about 5:30, got dressed and drove to Dalhart for our big garage sale. It was scheduled to start at 9:00 am, but got going about 8:15. We were trying to get tables and stuff all set up when we got bombarded with folks. Jenny was there to help and we really had a successful sale. We made about $600 and got rid of alot of stuff.

After the garage sale, we made our way back to Amarillo. When we got here Bo said he wanted to go out to eat, so I said OK. He took a shower, but I really didn't want to because I would have to do my hair and such. I just wanted to go eat just the way I was because I was tired and didn't want to take time to get ready. He said he wanted to go to a really nice restaurant, so I finally said I would go shower and change then. Bo needed to take the trailer attached to his truck by the storage building first so we did that, and on the way to the restaurant Cody called and said he really needed to borrow a tool from Bo, so Bo said ok and we had to go back by the house to get it. When we got home, there was some really loud music coming from our house, so we went to check it out. We opened the door, and BOY, WAS I SURPRISED!! The house was full of people! There were balloons, food,and a Happy Birthday sign. It was all for me! I was so shocked I was speechless for a few seconds. Bo had cooked it all up for my 50th birthday, which is Tuesday. I must say it was a wonderful surprise. Cody, Jenny & Corbin were here and Mason & Whitney and LuAnn & Richard, and my two friends, Shannon & Peggy, and of course, Bo. Whitney, Jenny & LuAnn had brought food, Bo had ordered prime rib and we had a lovely dinner and a really good cake to top it off. I enjoyed it so much and think my husband is just wonderful for doing it for me. I got some really nice cards, a very pretty necklace from Cody, and a beautiful diamond bracelet from Bo. It was great. I loved it and love my husband for being so thoughtful and my family for helping.



I feel blessed! Thank you Lord.
