A long 2 weeks!

Hi everyone!

Sorry have not been on, but seems like ran out of time.  For the first week I was working the last 4 days, which means had to do a thorough cleaning of my kitchen and bathroom, top to bottom, because our building has a Pharaoh Ant problem and the exterminators were coming on Oct 7 & 8 to bait the whole building.

Than to top it all off I went to the doctors on Thursday (the second day of work) and found out I had a lung infection.  So found out I felt like crap because I was sick.  Really thought that it was stress from the ants (they are not normal and really small plus you can not spray them or they make new nests)  everywhere I went in my apartment was looking for them and killing the ones I saw, I really hate ants!  On a happy note have not seen an ant for just over a day!

Last day of work was Saturday and spent Sunday catching up with my sleep and shows(new season started).

Than Monday was my birthday! (yep the exterminators where starting on my birthday lol).  It was a good day though.  My boyfriend surprised me with a cake, fudge and a big bouquet of flowers plus money for a gift.  Than he took me to bingo and the casino and out for dinner!

I did not take pictures of the flowers when I got them, but waited until the opened a bit more.  The bouquet was big enough for two vases and three little ones (2 for the bathroom) and my wall vase.  Here are some of the pictures.

 These next two are the same vase, aren't they beautiful?

 This is the second big vase.
I really love flowers!
  These next 2 are the bathroom ones, I took a picture of each where the belong 
and than another for each for a better view.


 
 This is the third little vase, I put in my computer room where the cats could not get it. :)
    And last but not least my wall vase.
(I got it at the dollar store for $2!- I bought 4 of them ;))
I also got some beautiful pet bed cases from my sister (will post pictures tomorrow of them) wait till you see them!  My sister is very talented!  Plus she gave me some gift cards to indulge myself with my games on Facebook. ;)  Plus a birthday card with a picture of me and her when we were little.
Plus one of my neighbors, a very nice woman, gave me a pkg of cupcakes and a gift card for the mall.
These cupcakes were fantastic!
And with the gift card I bought these (I add a few dollars from the money my boyfriend gave me to buy the dog, Chow Chow-Gwen- on the left)
 

 The one on the right is a Hyena (I named it Doreen after the lady who gave her to me.)

This next one I bought with my boyfriends money, her name is Bella.

 With these 3 animals I now have over 64 Webkins.

I started collecting them when my brother-in-law gave me a Webkins Christmas Hamster for Christmas in 2010.  Joined Webkins in Jan 2011, and now they are on Facebook as well!

Webkins have some neat games on their site, Great for children to learn things including how to use a PC.
Some of my favorite games are Cash Cow and Home Before Dark.

The Miniature Dachshund is part of their Signature Collection, some of the best stuffed animals I have ever seen!  Will post the ones I have one day and I know you will agree.

I have other presents coming too, one was ordered on line - and she will not tell me what it is and the other I will not get until the weekend. ;)

My phone gave me a birthday present too!
I have a Samsung Galaxy S3.
A voucher for a movie.
 I bought World War Z for my phone, but can watch on my TV as well!

There is one more thing but will not tell you until I get it, something I ordered with the rest of the money my hubby gave me.

Well I have to go.
Hopefully tomorrow will be able to visit a few more blogs!

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!

    1. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours too!

      It seems I have a few more things to go through yet (See my next post).

      Yes I have very nice friends and family, they know what I like. I know those cupcakes were really good too! But sweet! She got them from Target. They melt right in your mouth.

      As for the stuffed animals, I have always had a weakness for them, just collect Webkins and the McMaster Children's Hospital ones they sell in December at my bank for charity.
