‘Sup, y’all? Everyone getting ready to head back to work? Me, too. Bleh. But, I put beef stew in my crock pot so I’ll have dinner all ready when I get back to the hotel tonight – Yum! 🙂

And when he asked for the birthday card – requested one just like it! Only with a birthday sentiment!
I asked what colors his daughter liked – he said pink. So, I told him I’d change up the colors – including the card base. And he said – no – he liked the black background and he knew his daughter would, too!
