Hello, teacher friends! Yesterday was my birthday and it also happened to land on fall break, so I’ve had four glorious days off work. They.were.so.needed. My husband had the entire week off, so we were actually able to spend some time together. I shut down Design by Christi for the long weekend so I didn’t have any blogs to design, which meant I stepped away from the computer for a bit too. But, now I’m back and getting into going-back-to-work mode. Boo! 😉
Here’s a little recap of my weekend:
|Birthday cake with my favorites- polka dots and bright colors!|
|Trip to a glass blowing factory- bought a blown glass seashell!|
|Surprise! You get to make your own blown glass. What?!|
|Trip to the original Graeter’s ice cream for peanut butter chip- yum!|
|Dinner at my favorite- Bravo! where we had our first date ages ago|
|Shh… birthday wine. I picked the left two based solely on the polka dots.|
|Time to blow out the candles!|
|Ended at the bottom of a dog pile for a girlie movie|
Obviously, it was a nice little break. =) In case you missed them this week, I have a couple odds and ends for you too. First up, my Scotch Expressions Tape giveaway started this week. There’s still time to enter to win your own box of 15 rolls like the ones I used to make this clipboard.
Then a big Educents clip art deal also landed this week. It’s loaded with tons of art, papers, frames, and fonts for your classroom or products.
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend too, friends! How many days ’til Thanksgiving? 😉
So great that you had a wonderful, work free, birthday weekend! Your blog designs are beautiful – I know where I'm going next time I need a blog designed 🙂
Awe, thank you! I enjoy doing them. 🙂
I am somehow starving after reading your post! Happy birthday. 🙂

Happy Birthday! What an extra special treat to have four glorious days off! We do not have a Fall Break (wish we did!). Looks like your birthday was a big celebration! Have a great week!
Love your cake! Sounds like you had a great bday!
Happy birthday!! I don't want to get too cyber creepy, but are you from Cincinnati?! That's where I grew up and I know that the Graeter's market is limited to Cincinnati and a few other places in Ohio. =)
We're outside of Dayton, OH! We made the short trip down to Cincinnati this weekend for the fun though. 🙂
You had an amazing day! Glad you took a break from work to enjoy life!!! Happy birthday 🙂
BTW, I LOVE the blown glass piece you got- WOW!
