I was so spoiled on my birthday

My birthday was simply the BEST this year.  I came home to find this absolutely gorgeous flower arrangment from my momma......they smell just as beautiful as they look

And then my fabulous, sexy, amazing husband made me THE BEST pork BBQ I have EVER eaten. He spent all day looking online and in cookbooks for a recipe for the type of sauce that I like. It has to be the southern spicy/tangy style!!!!  It was simply divine......better than any I have ever gotten down south!

And of course you cant have BBQ without coleslaw.....thats a crime!!! So he made me homestyle coleslaw...FROM SCRATCH! Lordy I love this man!

And to top it all off was the perfect ending. A chocolate cake with peanut butter icing. Pure Divinity!

But wait it gets better. My husband knows that I am an absolute book freak! I read at least 3 books a week. Now before you ask how I have time with 3 kids and all the sewing I do.....if you're a book lover like me, you will ALWAYS find the time!  He also knows that I have such a hard time getting out to my local paperback trade store to get any books with the little one and all the other stuff I have to do and forget the library.....I just paid a 42$ bill for overdue books! So what did this wonderful man do you might ask.........

HE BOUGHT ME AN ELECTRONIC READER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This little baby is so amazing. You can go online and download ANY book you want in like 5 minutes! ALL IN YOUR HOME! AAAHHHH, I am sooo in love. I put 3 on here when I got it and I have already read through the first and now I'm on the second.  What a smart thing I did in marrying him!

Happy New Year Christina and Happy Birthday!
I love pulled pork BBQ sandwiches southerns style as well and yes honey, it would surely be a crime to eat them without coleslaw. What a sweet hubby you have. Would he mind sharing the recipes he used?
That electronic reader thingie looks really cool. Is it a kindle?
