BirthWeek Day #1

In our family (the Joe and Jen Boucher family) it is not enough to celebrate the birthday. We need to celebrate the birthweek. I think that this tradition started because once November rolls around ... I am FAR to excited to wait until the 9th to see what surprises are coming my way. Today (11/3) starts my birthweek. (Joe wants me to point out that normally it is the Jen half of the "Joe and Jen Boucher family that usually gets this treatment. I'll work harder on carrying on the tradition for him ... )

Joe kicked if to last night with a bang! He told me that he needed to go somewhere last night. As I was paying the bills (fun) Joe came home and brought me out to the garage. There stood two BEAUTIFUL LARGE book shelves PERFECT for holding all of my stamping supplies!! I was SO excited!! I needed to prepare for club -- and that was a more time sensitive activity than rearranging my "office" aka "stamp room." BUT my room was slightly cluttered anyway and if I were to organize it -- I'd just have to redo it once my shelves were in place. SO we decided to bring the bookcases downstairs.

After no success trying to bring it down the stairs we resorted to going through the window. Finally it was in the basement! Joe and I quickly transferred things from one shelf to the other, did a bit of rearranging and this is what we got! It is the double shelf on the left. The shelf on the right I already had. There is a second shelf that I need to figure out what to do with still. Our room is pretty small downstairs.

Thanks JOEY for the best PRE-Birthweek gift EVER! The best news is -- he got it for FREE! I love it :)

Clarification: I do believe that it is only the Jen part of the Joe & Jen family that has ever gotten to celebrate their birthday week. Regardless, it's been fun.

I'm glad you're enjoying it again this year.

Don't forget to mention that, this year, you insisted on celebrating your birthday month, as well :)
