It's Robyn's Birthday!!!

I haven't heard from her yet, so this is what I'm thinking about having delivered from 1-800-flowers.com. It just screams Robyn! If you want to see a better photo, go to the website. That's as big as it's gonna get here baby! It's from all of us, so if you see something you like better, please let me know. I'm flexible. (Good Lord, don't let Inner Voices know that!)
And this is the card. I looked at so many, but this one wouldn't let me leave without it! Is it perfect, or what?
It has that waxy surface that doesn't let ink dry, so I waited a long long time. I actually painted the hearts because crayons didn't work!
And yup...leave it to beaver to make a spelling mistake. If the card has to be sent, this is what the envelope looks like!
Later friends,
XO
***UPDATE (1:30PM)***
WELL YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS BUT I WENT TO ELK GROVE! THAT'S A LONG TRIP (OVER 60 MILES). I DIDN'T WANT THE FLOWER CAKE TO SIT ON HER FRONT PORCH (I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HER), SO INSTEAD RUSHED HOME FROM THE PARK, PICKED A HUGE BOUQUET OF ROSES AND LEFT IT, ALONG WITH THE CARD ON HER FRONT PORCH. LET'S HOPE SHE STUMBLES ON THEM! I TOOK LOTS OF PHOTOS AND HAVE MORE TO TELL YOU, BUT I'M SO, SO, SO FAR BEHIND NOW, I'VE GOTTA BOGGIE! TALK TO YOU ALL LATER. LET'S HOPE THE BIRTHDAY GIRL SHOWS UP!
LOVE TO ALL XO

Suzanne said...

That's my crew!!!!! Couldn't ask for better!!!!

Suzanne said...

Can't find the birthday girl. I've gotta call in my order pretty quickly here, but if she isn't home, I don't want to and have the cake sit in the sun all day. Not a good thing. So, I'm going to wait to hear from her. Is that okay with the Peeps!?

Isn't this a terrific place? Every time I come here my uppper body starts dancin' while I type! I don't know why, it just does. I love it here. And Mark, don't start drinkin' yet honey...the party's just startin' and we need you to man the barbie (good lord, I know I.V. can do something with that). We should have a big crowd today and please make sure Helen and Jo stop by to wish the Little Birthday Girl a wonderful year.

I can hardly wait to celebrate everyone's birthday here. It's too much fun. It sort of kicks the blues right the heck outta ya!!! I'm lovin' it!

So, with no further adieu, in the words of the old gospel singer, Kylie...

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ROBYN,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU."

Now, if she were only here!

XO

P.S. For those of you who don't know, Cecile could use you over on her blog. Have a beautiful day everyone.

Happy Birthday Dear Robyn!

Happy Birthday Dear Robyn!

we are all waiting for you to show up...

Suzanne said...

Exhausted. *Drags butt out to the dance floor, looks around, sits down on sofa.* "Bindi honey, could you make me a double latte with an espresso chaser? Thanks, I'll make tea for you later." *Wonders to self where Robyn is and thinks about the tree in her front yard. It's dying. It has a chance with a bit more love, otherwise it's dying." "Hey Robyn, you're damn tree's dyin'. Don't make me come over there girl." Oh that's right, I was just there. Okay, "Don't make me come back girl!" Give that thing a bit more love. ;) I want photos to prove it.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, that latte hit the spot. I'm off!

Cecile said...

I bet if you check your profile, the Onion is back on top again, Suze. I think that when you put a new post up the last one you posted on becomes the first blog on your profile. It is just an educated guess. It is something I have noticed. It may even change for each comment you write too. Not sure. Let's party people. Lemon drop shots for everyone.

Suzanne said...

Oh shut up. I was wrong, wrong, wrong. I was gaspin' at the wind! Yup, you right! You right girlie! Okay, Bindi, how do you change this crap? This is going to drive me absolutely crazy. It's the simple stuff that makes me nutty. Complicated stuff...easy. Simple stuff...hard. That's the rule. Right?

Honey, how about a swig of something. I'm not a drinker, but I'm willing to try. Wanna play some poker? Let's go to the Vegas Room and shake our money maker. Leah thinks that works.

Happy Birthday Robyn
You are very special
And you deserve the best
I wish you a wonderful life
Filled with love and happiness!!!

Ok, Mark, I am ready for shrimp on the barbie, it's been a long day...plus a nice cold beverage would be real nice...

*wandering room to room looking for the "Birthday Girl", spots Suze lounging on sofa*..."Hey Suze, want to go play the slots?"

Off to the Vegas room for some action...a few lemon drops...and whatever else that may come along...

"Robyn, where are yoouuuuu.....?"

The Queen said...

Happy Birthday Robyn!
Isn't it just grand that so many people stopped by...just to wish you a wonderful day!
Pamper yourself...do something special to celebrate you.
Love to you,
Shara

Suzanne said...

Yup, do something special. And why don't you tell us about it honey! We're all waitin' with our little cone birthday hats and noise makers. We've been here a long, long time. :)

ShutterSpy said...

Happy birthday Robyn! :-D

Sorry, I haven't got a photo of a cake for you ;-)

Robyn said...

Here I am ! *waving frantically* Here I am !

Whew! My head is all a buzz, well it probably had something with the shots of patron (a lot of parton) and some chaser beers. Damn! I really don't drink that much but with the way I was feeling and then plain just having fun! A small group of us got to together and went a played darts! What a hoot! And loud music...hey, wait! *stunned starts looking around* I was HERE! I was RIGHT HERE! It was really quite fun!

Ok...on the real! You are the best! You all made my day! Suze! I love you with all my heart...you made me so very happy with your very kind act! I love the way the bouquet smells and looks! The colors are stunning and I am thrilled to have something from your 'secret garden'! And the card I will always cherish! That is a keeper! And yes...we know it is dying the...the tree that is! We have called smud to get someone to come with a another tree and we will that a shot! My mom is coming over to help with that one...she is also the green thumb!

Leah! Thank you so very much for the cupcake! It was perfect...and with my favorite color candle too! I wrote on your post (the one with the cupcake), but I figured I should write up here too!

I can't thank you all enough for all the lovely words and kindness you all have showered on me! I in that time of my life, where I am rethinking and replanning things. And it really helps knowing that I have friends like you beside me!
I love ya all! And wish I could hug each of you! So here is the big smooch Mark was looking for *SSMMOOCCHH*
LOL!
Love ya and sending lots of hugs,
Robyn

Suzanne said...

I LOVE YOU HONEY!!! The pleasure was all mine.

Rob still can't believe I didn't knock!!! Neither can I.

Oh well...next time.

XO

Joyful Jo said...

Dear Robyn,
a very belated happy birthday from
the aussie family. Hope you had a really great birthday,
love and best wishes from
Jo, Mark and Helen. xoxo

Suzanne said...

Well, it's about time young lady!!! Honey, wanna have a drink. We serve fine coffee and tea if you like and Suze makes the best scones, cupcakes, mini-cakes, tea sandwiches, etc.. You'll never want to leave. It a place we call perfection. No rules. We make them as we go along. Welcome. Sit a while and enjoy the view of the dance floor, then enter if you wish. It's a very magical place!

There is nothing like making your own Chai at home, but for those who would like to have the convenience of having a chai blend that tastes like real chai; meaning good amount of fresh spices and good organic assam tea, please visit Yogic Chai's website at http://www.yogicchai.com

Last time I checked, you were able to request a free sample

Enjoy!
