The older I get the less hoopla there is with each birthday. (I think this is standard and I'm totally ok with that) This year was kinda different though. For the ease of everyone's schedules, Keith and I decided to combine our birthdays and have one small party w the fam on May 5. Him celebrating late while I celebrated early.
Sounds good, right?
Just get the obligatory cake out of the way.
However, what's funny is that by doing it like this it has actually stretched our birthdays out.
For the past several weeks people have randomly handed me gifts.
And I like it.
I like it a lot.
Because a good portion of those gifts have been PYREX! Note all the stars!
The people in my life are so good too me!
The bottom, blue and white round casserole dish is actually a Glasbake piece that I gifted to myself. I love that Pyrex makes solid color pieces but Fire King and Glasbake sure have some awesome patterns.
Speaking of patterns, UNawesome is Old Orchard and Forest Fancies by Pyrex. Yuck! I really hate those two. There is nothing as disappointing as looking at a stack of dishes at the thrift store, seeing the cinderella bowl shape, pulling the bowl from the heap and realizing it is the nasty, speckled mushrooms. Rage.
Glasbake did mushes much better, in my humble opinion....

I wrote him a note.
He got a kick out of it.
