Happy Birthday, Pier One, Tulips

Happy Birthday to the best Sister-in-Law a girl could have!  Hope you have an amazing 30th birthday! 

I know yall will have a blast celebrating in Miami this weekend!

Cheers to this being your best year yet, Mama Duck!

Yesterday at lunch, I stopped by Pier One to see if they had fake limes.  BTW, try finding fake limes - so hard.  Everyone has green apples but not limes!  Ha!  I've found five at a lil shop in Virginia, but need a few more.  Supposively Crate and Barrel will have them in a week or two.

ANYWAY, I saw these adorable coasters and for $3.50 each, a set of four is a great lil hostess gift.  Super fun for a porch too.

On my way home, I stopped at Trader Joe's to pick up a couple things and had been lusting over the tulips.  I decided, hey what the heck, I'm going to pick some up today as a treat for the weekend. 

Wellllllll Kevin evidently had the same idea.  I got home and had these waiting on me with some ceviche he made and a bottle of wine with a cute note.  He always knows when to do the right things....it hadn't been the best day.

But I had also gotten tulips and the funny thing was that I wanted the pink ones that he had gotten but the two packages left of them didn't look the best so I went with red.  So now we have lots of tulips to enjoy! 
It's seriously almost a joke at this point about flowers.  I rarely buy them but whenever I do, he has bought them that same day.  It's like we just know haha. 

It's been mid to upper 60's all week in Charlotte and suppose to be 75 here today.  Needless to say, I'll be working from the Avenue pool deck! ;)

We are going down to Kevin's home town tonight to have a late birthday celebration with his parents.  Tomorrow we are working at the boat show for his Allstate business.  Dinner with two other couples is on tap tomorrow night along with the Chairman of the Board concert with some other friends.  Looking forward to a great and busy weekend. 

Do yall have fun plans?

Those coasters are so very cute! And the tulips are lovely. I picked up a potted batch of tulips on monday and put them on the kitchen table. Spring is on the way!

I told Brad you invited us to COB and he laughed. My in-laws are obsessed with them but it's totally not our thing ;)

Love tulips! I saw them at T. Joe's today, and they are just beautiful.

PS - Have you checked craft stores for faux limes? Pretty sure Michaels or Hobby Lobby might have them? Check in the wreath-making area!
