Birthday Cake Not Birthday Candles

My girlfriends and I love to celebrate just about everything, and we especially make an effort to be together for our birthdays.

birthday-cake-not-birthday-candles-thoughtful-gift-ideaElise brought a box of four individually packaged cakes made from the Original YaHoo Baking Co.  Of course, you can make your own or purchase from a local bakery.

Janiece had fun trying to choose either the Bourbon Pecan, Chocolate Espresso, Rum Crunch or Chocolate Chip Amaretto Liquor Cakes.

They were delicious and the perfect size. Besides, who needs the calories of a regular size cake?

Prior to Elise lighting the four candles, she said:

“This is a birthday cake but not birthday candles.”

Then she said:

Custom Throw Pillows Add Personal Touch

I love how throw pillows can make a creative statement on a sofa, chair or bed.

They’re almost like “pillow art” because they come in so many unique designs, colors and textures!

Look, life can be stressful and sometimes I just need to escape reality for a while… by watching some Netflix.

I like to close the door to my bedroom, lay on my bed, and binge watch a little.

It’s so nice to ask a family member what they want for Christmas, and they know exactly what they want!

apple-airpods-bluetooth-wireless-earbuds-earphones-thoughtful-gift-ideaMy son, Braden, is THE IT TECH GUY in our family. Since he also works in IT, he is always experiencing or researching the newest technology.

Thoughtful Techie Gift

His “wish list” was one item–Apple AirPods Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds. 

On the job, Braden likes to listen to music while working on tech stuff (that’s as technical as I can get), and he must be available at all times to take incoming calls.

With a tap of the AirPods, he can switch from listening to music to answering his iPhone. AMAZING! 

AirPods deliver five hours of listening time on one charge, and it has a charging case that holds additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. Continue Reading

iFLY Indoor Skydiving

I’ve always wanted to skydive but jumping out of an airplane just didn’t make a lot of sense the older I became.

Ifly-indoor-skydiving-thoughtful-gift-ideaMy sister-in-law gave me a gift certificate to iFLY so I could fulfill my dream closer to the ground!

Indoor Skydiving

iFLY is indoor skydiving that simulates true free fall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel.

Their motto of “It’s where the dream of flight becomes a reality” really happened for me!

At age 65 I’m no spring chicken (a phrase my mother-in-law would say) but there have been lots of elderly people who have been brave enough to skydive.

I hoped the wind tunnel would help me decide if I was just satisfied doing a simulation or if I needed to do the real thing. Continue Reading

Guardian Bells Good Luck Charms

I never really believed in a rabbit’s foot for good luck. Think about it… losing a foot wasn’t very good luck for the rabbit.

guardian-bell-hearts-thoughtful-gift-ideasOn the other hand, I always liked the saying, “Find a penny pick it up, for all day long you’ll have good luck.”

After reading about the legend of the tiny Guardian Bell’s good luck charm, I wanted one for myself. Plus, it has such a sweet ring!

Legend has it that the use of bells as a channel for positive energy dates back to antiquity.

Across cultures, continents and religions, bells have been rung to banish evil spirits.
