Happy Birthday to Mom!


     My mom’s birthday is tomorrow and with all of the planning for the trip to Chicago, I sort of forgot put off buying a gift for her! In my defense, we share the same birthday and I think that I was trying to ignore my birthday and did the job too well.

     What is a girl to do when she lives in the middle of nowhere and doesn’t have enough time to shop online? PAINT!

     Meet Pogo-

     My mom is a Golden Retriever nut and well, I am not that great of a painter. So I went for charming and sort of Snoopy like.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU BOTH! Your painting is the type of gift I love the most and I'm sure your mum will love it as it comes from the heart!

Happy Birthday Girl, and Happy Birthday to Mom too! She will love the painting. My mom and I both have birthdays in October too. We're 5 days apart at the end of the month. Hope you have a great day tomorrow!

Happy birthday to you, and your Mom!
Pogo is awesome; he has a definite charm and I love his jaunty scarf.
You're going to Chicago? Have a great time!
