Guess Who's Having A Birthday and who LOVES pink??

Well, I have been VERY busy and I snuck over to
Eileen's blog (Umma's World) and swiped a few wonderful pictures to honor her on her special day today.  Just love this one of she and Ray in the park with Jayden....

Guess which one is Eileen?  Actually...none, BUT this is what we ALL need to do today (let me know which body muscles are still attached when you finish)...

This cute little boy and girl just reminded me of Ray and Eileen and what they probably had to do for their pre-marriage classes...

This is SOOOO Eileen, full of love for those grandbabies,...

Here's the male miniature version (aka Jayden) of Eileen....

And here's the cute little female miniature of Eileen (aka Mia)...

This is one of my many favorites because of the sheer joy on their faces...

And since Eileen has some lovely Irish in her (and I do too!), Irish her the most happy of birthdays...

Did anyone know how famous Eileen is and how irresistible?.....

Seems like Ray is quite the man too....

Gotta give Eileen some pink today as she does (or at least she used to) love it so much.  It's a mini pink kitchen...

Should we all pool our resources ( I am low on resources but I have three candy bars) and get her this car?....

And wouldn't she love having this in her front yard?....

Even though this is pretty much a hot pink, I think Eileen could carry it off!!....

And does she have pink luggage???...this is yet another gift idea for those of you who are stumped and yet loaded with money...

What house could be complete without this pink tree??....

We all need to beg Ray to paint thier house this lovely pink color and surprise Eileen ('s not too late Ray if you stay up all night and get 20 or 30 family members to help you!!)....

Found this lovely and holy cake with pink icing but they misspelled Eileen (hard to find good help nowadays)...

How perfect is this and Eileen reflects His

 love in her kind ways...

This is a great day to send more and more good wishes her way...

Aaah, yet another project for Ray (such a nice guy) where he can surprise Eileen and shock himself, all in one fell swoop...

It bears repeating, Happy, happy Birthday...

This is a REALLY pink cake with a heart for someone who is a sweetheart...

With all this pink there is bound to be something pink Eileen will like here...

How about pink flamingos?  This painting might be a little pricy but I'm sure we could find her some plastic ones for her front and back yard and maybe even inside the house!!...

Eileen dearly loves coffee, so here's a cup that even I might be able to handle...

Some more vintage pink for Eileen...

And VOILA... a pink sunrise for her too...

Finally, some pink birthday balloons...

To cover her kitchen burners we have some pretty pink flowered burner covers...

And this was the perfect flower to send her for her birthday....

Finally for the fine person and good friend and empathetic person that she is to me and to so many, I want to say....

Something to bring a smile to the birthday girl's face and yours too (hopefully)...

On my birthday I got a really funny card from a friend. It joked about how our bodies might be getting older, but our minds were still "tarp as shacks." I wanted to thank the friend who sent the card, but I couldn't. She forgot to sign it.

  13. Re. your comments not showing up this morning 1/19/10...STRANGE things are happening! Some comments come to me via my email. Then one day I discovered on my blog "dashboard" that comments had accumulated waiting to be moderated. I have NO idea how they got there. I normally didn't check there...but now I do. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this and knows why???

  14. What a great tribute to her. You always do everything with a splash!

    This is my bi-monthly drop in to say hi moment! :o)

  15. Hello Marcy....
    Just wanted to introduce myself: Jackie
    I live down South...and miss you like crazy.
    I've been 'tic'...and am still under the weather...but will be up and 'kickin' soon.
    Wanted to check in and say hello...and let you know that I'm thinking of you. I hope that all is well with you and your family.
    I would love to hear about your dog...the one you adopted. Many warm smiles to you, my friend. Miss you bunches.

  16. Oh, I enjoyed looking at all these beautiful pictures again! I was going to copy and paste them but then I thought I can come visit here anytime I want!

    Listen, hurry up and post again! I'm going to be taking a blogging break for the month of February (lots of de-cluttering to do, am in the midst of a MESS now and have to stop as I'm having a Birthday party for Jayden here next weekend, but then I have to get back to it! I'm really going to purge, I should post things on my blog to see if anyone wants me to send them anything before I donate and/or trash them!), and Ray & I might take a trip.
    So give us one more post please before I take my leave!

    Love to you!, E


Comments are blessings too...
