Birthday Paint Party Friday


 Last week Beardo and Cupcake went to Mumford and Sons
 and this happened...it's a  three minute happy story!!
Worth the watch 

 Beardo /betterbrother is a singer songwriter, 
  his instagram photo was used in the video
along with his following words, which cupcake responded to.

  betterbrother Boyfriends all around the park sighed in frustration as this banner floated around the sky above the park right before Mumford and Sons setting a new standard in their girlfriends eyes..... I apologized to my wife... we had a chuckle. Go get him, Natalie Helm!      
pepperpf no apologies needed! babe we could buy nice shoes with that money! ;-) betterbrother And that's why i married you! :)    


 Last Wednesday the goddesses took me out for an early Birthday dinner!!
 Dream goddess made me this beautiful cake that was even yummier than it looked!!
Photo credited to Gypsy Goddess
  
This is six days before I turned 57.
 It's fun to have a photo commemorating my age.
With my fat staving off the wrinkles....phew....
Actually I softened the light with a photo process
fooled yah!

Then I  painted this digital with imaginary pink hair.  
I'd probably have pink hair if I was thirty years younger,
 working in a non conventional job!


  I'd have to try these colors too, cuz I'm fun like that!!

                  On Tuesday, my actual  Birthday, Cupcake made me Cupcakes.
                                  In my imagination they looked and tasted like this!


 In actuality they were delectable chocolate cupcakes
stuffed with reeses peanut butter cups,
topped with crumbled peanut butter cups on the icing!!
I was treated like a goddess, but to be honest I am 
treated like one most days!!
There were many fun surprises that day, flowers left on my step,
some loose, some in a planter, a cool pink pedestal dish, 
a britto spoon holder and a lipstick!
I LOVED IT ALL!!!
 A week ago I started cleaning out drawers in my en-suite bathroom
and hadn't quite finished.  I've been fighting a head cold. 
The evening before my birthday Cupcake cleaned
  my large bathroom from top to bottom. Silly as this seems to
some, It was a total surprise and more than thrilling for me! 
I love a clean house but find it difficult with my bad hip. 
 
If only I could wear heels, best I can do is wedgies!!
Now to put on my party shoes cuz I have way more celebratin to do!!
What is something that may seem silly that you would love
 your family to do for you on a special occasion?

This is my contribution for Paint Party Friday!

Sherrie, such a fabulous post with all sorts of wonderful photos. First, that was some proposal, wasn't it, in front of all those people. One would have to be sure the answer was "yes" to do that!

Happy belated birthday! Cupcakes, hm-m. I love them myself. My son always wanted an iced angel food cake. I used to buy the cake at the grocery store and throw on some chocolate icing. Voila! Birthday cake! (I hope your cold has gone by now.) The cleaning of the bathroom was one powerful BD gift! Oh, to receive a housecleaning, that would be heaven.

Love your post.

Happy Birthday Sherrie, my little one turned 2 yesterday and I turned 38 on the 18th, so we are all quite close with our Birthdays. I love those party shoes, oh such fun and character here as always! It's all those thoughtful gestures and actions that count, your daughter must be very special to you, it's the little things that really count! Best wishes your way! xx

Linda said...

Happy, happy birthday dear Sherrie!!! Every time I visit I know I need to take my time to ingest all the fun and color here-so depending on the time of day , it's either with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine!Cheers! Love your photo- and the pink hair-too fun. Fantastic art as usual.

Happy birthday. Such a fabulous post, I loved looking at all the photos and video and you can't go past cupcakes. I would be on cloud nine if someone cleaned my bathroom.

Wonderful post and I loved all the photos and the nice range of subjects. I like the cupcake pictures best. I think I'd like my kids to come over and clean any part of the house. What a great birthday present! Here's to 57 more!

minnemie said...

Only you could wear pink hair and look totally natural and GORGEOUS! Happy birthday:-)

Lorraine said...

happy birthday what a great post with all those vibrant colours happy ppf

Nic McLean said...

Happy birthday!! You definitely don't look 57 even if you did 'soften the light' on the photo!! I love the photo-shopped images with the wild coloured hair! I do love to hear about wild romantic gestures and wonderfully inventive ways of proposing and I guess nowadays every one gets it filmed for posterity (or You Tube!)

Dawn said...

Awh watched the vid. lovely CUPCAKES! Dxx

judie said...

Happy, happy post all around. Happy Birthday Ms. Gigglygirl! :)

I smirked when I read your comment about wanting pink hair. I've been wanting to pierce one of my ears with a diamond stud, because I think they look very artsy. However, my two daughters said I would look as if I was trying to look young, and a close friend whom I work with said I was much to classy for something like that. LOL! I love the Andy Warhol and Pop Art images that you created for this post. By the way, your daughter is as pretty as her mother. Happy Birthday, my friend!

Ginny said...

Happy Birthday. This was such a happy post. I loved it from top to bottom.

PS Your picture was beautiful.

Janet said...

Your birthday celebrations sound great. And your new photo is beautiful...in all colors. I'm glad you had lots of love and goodies from everyone. You deserve it all!

Rita Juse-Cirkse said...

Joni Nickrent said...

Oh, how fun...loving all the bright, bold and beautiful pops of color! Happy PPF and Happy Bday too!

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

Aww, happy birthday to you! It looks like it was filled with love and fun. I love your digital versions of yourself. I'd have blue hair, if it didn't mean bleaching out my hair to get it to stick... Cute cupcake images too!

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you felt completely loved by everyone around you. It sounds like they did a great job of treating you like a queen! The video is absolutely precious. What a great way to start a life together. Your artwork and writing, as always, blows me away...such creativity and joy. Happy PPF, my friend! - janice

Nicola said...

What a brilliant post and happy birthday to you gorgeous lady! Love the pics and the art is so fun! :)

Lynn Cohen said...

So let me get this straight, the lucky young lady in the video is NOT your kid, not is the guy who proposed to her? But your kids were there? Yes, it's a cool proposal. I hope the marriage lasts. LOL I love your liking good shoes and a clean bathroom as gifts a plenty. Fun, cool, art!
I hope you find a time to have pink hair NOW. I saw and tried some hair "chalk" (washed right out) and had some green hair for a day last trip to visit my kids in Portland. Was with my 20 yr old gran daughter while she shopped, I "painted/chalked my hair"! Too fun. Happy birthday! You look stunning! If, when the wrinkles come just see it as progess in a life well lived. That's my excuse!
