A Celebrity's Birthday

In my family, birthdays are a big deal. 80th birthdays are an even bigger deal. On New Year's Eve this year, my Mamaw will be 80 years old! Since we won't all be together for it, we celebrated over Thanksgiving.

We started out by going to Ruth's Chris. Once you eat their steak, you can never eat steak anywhere else...it never compares to theirs!

Then came the moment I've been waiting for! The gifts! I've mentioned in the past month or so that I was working on a big project and now I can finally show it off! First, I made a slideshow of pictures from Mamaw's life. But the best gift was the People Magazine. Mamaw LOVES People, she gets it every week as soon as it hits the stands. Mamaw also looks like a celebrity (read: gorgeous) and people have always told her that. So we decided to combine those interests and give her a gift she'll never forget!

Mamaw had the best reaction that I could have hoped for. I have the sweetest pictures of her crying, but she may kill me if I post those :) 

Now for the magazine. I couldn't have made this without My Memories Suite that I won in a giveaway a few months ago. (They have no idea I'm writing about them...I just want y'all to know how great it is!) Most of the articles in here were inspired from real articles in People. My favorites are Chic at all Ages, their Love Story (written by Pawpaw!), and Who Wore it Best :)

Okay here's the rest!

Happy Birthday Mamaw! We love you SO MUCH!

That present is amazing! So thoughtful and sweet. She looks great for 80. I'd have easily said late 60's wow!!!!

Hope all is well. I'm having a Christmas give away if you're interested :)

That is seriously the greatest present! I couldn't imagine her not loving it. You are right - she looks fabulous. My favorite is the "who wore it better" page - so smart! I love that she went up again Marilyn (and won, of course!)

P.S. I got your Christmas card in the mail yesterday. LOVE!!!!!

Ooo that is so cute! My grandmother was the same way with TV Guide. I wish she was still here so I could do something like that for her.

Ruth said... Best Blogger Tips

What a fun idea. I wish we had known about something like that when my grandmother turned 80 almost 3 years ago. Will have to work on remembering that for when the other turns 80 next year.

Air Jordan 12 Retro Red And Black, On Tuesday, a video clip of the conversation between Roberts and Mills circulated widely on social media posts suggesting it revealed the virus was a hoax and that the media was in on it. "The same media that tells you the world needs to be shut down but behind the scenes, they really don't believe what they tell you," one post stated. Roberts also stressed that both he and Mills are treating the virus seriously, and do not believe in conspiracy theories around the virus.

In Montreal's shrinking Chabanel garment district where businesses increasingly struggle to stay afloat, an unlikely fashion player has emerged. Fast growing Ssense (pronouced "essence"), which stocks hundreds of luxury brands ranging from the established Alexander McQueen to up and coming Vetements, is headed not by a fashion professional but a computer engineer. Rami Atallah, its chief executive officer, caters to a global clientele by selling goods mostly online (he has one store in Old Montreal), while many tony rivals have been slow to embrace e commerce. {tag: Yeezy V2 White Size 11}
