A Happy for my Hunny Bunny

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Macadamia

Happy happy birthday to my most amazing hubby! in the cyberworld I call him my hunny bunny, so it just seemed appropriate that he get a happy hunny bunny card for his birthday. yep, y'all know I'm weird like that! grins! I was supposed to be part of a blog hop today, but never heard back from the person in charge after several emails. so y'all get the card anyhow - just have to hop like a bunny on your own! imagine we are in a lovely conga line with that unique song playing in the bg..... hop, hop, hop!!!

The cutey rabbit is from Jellypark. papers are Basic Grey PB&J. bg was embossed with a Tim Holtz woodgrain folder. buttons are vintage and belt loop comes from one of the boys' pair of shorts. other elements are from a Freckled Fawn 'Oh Deer Me' Kit of the Month. these are quite addicting, and always fun to get! different shops from Etsy are included in the kits each month. I've only done several of them, but have enjoyed the variety of goodies. hope to be able to collect more as time goes along. the 'happy' text comes from an alphabet by Deliteful.

Received the news yesterday that I have several tears in my left shoulder tendons. can't for the life of me figure out how that happened, but am in the process of getting appts. with an orhopedic surgeon. Need to get it fixed before I can start radiation treatments. always something to keep life interesting! :) enjoy your weekend!

I AM blog hopping on my own today!! LOL!

Tears (plural!) in your left shoulder? Say it isn't so, Jen!

What the what? Please let us know what the surgeon says! I'm sure you know I've got a ton of advice on that front!

Oh you poor thing! I can't imagine this on top of everything else you're going through.

Hugs to you, my friend! :)

Belated Happy Birthday Wishes to your hubby!! And another thing that you and I have in common, as August 18th is not only also my Hubby's birthday, but mine too! That's three of all who all celebrate a birthday on the very same day!!

Hubby is three years older, but we share the exact birthday and now we know someone else who dies too!!

What a small world!!

Hugs and Happy thoughts....

PS; Sorry to hear about your shoulder and the idea of surgery I'm sure is NOT fun...! Sounds like you are done with Chemo and hope that's a good thing!!
