Happy Birthday SAS

Today my sister is another year older. We had a scare this week...she ended up in hospital and was told she had meningitis. They did some testing and fortunately it was viral meningitis (bacterial meningitis is the deadly form). While we waited for the test results I was absolutely terrified and immediately started making deals with god for my sister's health. This frightening incident definitely made me look at what I take for granted and put things in perspective.

Little sis, Sometimes life can be a greater gift than a new LV bag! Here are a few presents to celebrate another healthy year. xx

Camo Tote, L.L.Bean ...comes with a trip to Star Monograms.
You can never take the country out of the girl.

"Quatrefoil drops" in tortoise, Meg Carter

3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp...no Birthday is complete without candy.

Growing up SAS and I would always try the latest candy...well not much as changed. Whenever we see a new candy we grab it. I have recently been disappointed by Pretzel M&Ms, 3 Musketeers Mint, and Dark Chocolate Covered Peeps (redeemed when microwaved) but when I tasted the new 3 Musketeers candy all my sampling had paid off! The "crisp" is the equivalent of chocolate Astronaut Ice Cream one of my sisters all time favorites. I called SAS otherwise known as the "candy connoisseur" to let her know of my new discovery. She tried the Truffle Crisp and was also blown away. Let me know what you think.

A girl after my own heart. I have loved astronaut ice cream since the first time I had it in grade school. A nearby store carries it and they laugh at me when I make my monthly trip to pick up my stash. I hope your sister has a fantastic birthday! And so glad she's feeling better.

I think the Take 5 ruined Pretzel M&Ms for me!

Wow--so glad the scare ended up being viral, not bacterial. What great gifts and happy happy birthday to your sister! Hope you have a great weekend celebrating with her and she's feeling better soon. :)

Happy birthday to your sister! She's a very fortunate girl - my mom contracted bacterial meningitis this summer and we almost lost her. It caused two strokes, but she's making her way back and we're so happy for that. Certainly makes you count your blessings!

Happy Birthday to your sis! Meningitis is très scary so very relieved that all is well. And, now that the camo cat's outta the tote bag, I can post about it over at my place...XXOO
