Special birthday present

I received a really special birthday present from my parents this year. Okay, I did kind of have it on my Amazon list, so I kinda picked it out myself, but they bought it for me and I am so happy with it. Thanks Mom & Dad!

And no, it is not my fondue pot, although they did buy me that as well. :)

It is a really cool necklace that has all 3 of my kids names on it. Now that my family is "complete" (ie, I won't be having any more babies), I really wanted something symbolic of all three of the children.

And while I find most "mother's" jewelry kind of ... well, not really something I'd want to wear very much, I think this is so cool and hip and I just ... are you getting the drift that I really, really like it???

Anyhow, here it is. Pardon the not-so-clear picture. I am one of those bloggers who doesn't have a $500 camera that takes perfectly zoomed and lighted photos. I am accepting donations if it bothers you too much. :)

It came from Lisa Leonard designs. She's online so check out her really great stuff! And no, I'm not making any money by plugging her, I just think her jewelry is really cool!

Thanks again Mom & Dad for the necklace!

I love it! I will be hinting around for one for myself. My B-day and Mothers day are both in May!

Thanks for sharing your fondue enjoyments and your gift of the unique necklace. That's something special, I'm sure you will enjoy as you wear it. Also, the fondue, we tried at a church fundraiser meal we attended. We liked the food, but it's a slow process. We like to eat a bit faster, maybe it's better for dessert, or a quick snack. :-) Glad you enjoy the unique experience.
