Soooooooooo, Sheila and I have a friend who has been lately ... ummm ... slightly ... well, impossible.

Suzanne's DH recently landed a big new job with a huge increase in his pay. And Suzanne doesn't let us forget it. Between braggin' on her husband's new Mercedes, or her new BMW, or her son's new private school, she's showin' off all kinds of new designer clothes, handbags, and jewelry. It's fun for awhile, but it's gettin' old ... fast.

Anyway, her son, Toby, and Sheila's Reid-the-Wild-Child, are buds. And, since Toby's birthday is coming up, Sheila needed to shop for his gift. 'Course, I got dragged along for all the fun.

After looking at a thousand games, trucks, trains, and craft kits, Sheila announced that she couldn't find a thing for Toby.

"Ummmm, maybe a video or something educational?" I suggested.

"No, that's not it," Sheila replied.

We continued wandering aimlessly through the aisles until something finally caught her eye: a laser gun with flashing lights and 15 different high-pitched sounds.

"This is perfect," she said, beaming. "Suzanne will hate it."

Uh, oh, she's crossed the line now ... stand by for "Revenge of the Birthday Gifts!"

Thanks for sharing part of your very busy day with me ... have a great weekend!

This is wonderful Deb, looks good enough to eat. I wanted to say I loved all of you cards using Theresa's newest set. You really rocked. I knew when Theresa told me that she had picked you that you would do a wonderful job. I look forward to seeing what else you do with it. Have a fantastic weekend.

Love that yummiful stack of cupcakes!

My respect for Sheila continues to grow. For my daughter's fifth birthday I passed out cute little whistles as party favors. One of the stupidest things I've ever done. I don't think those parents ever forgave me. LOL
