The happiest of birthday and anniversary wishes to Mr Sweet and you!

When I was growing up, most of the Bills (Billys then)were obnoxious little boys. Imagine my surprise when I met a Bill who swept me off my feet! We have our own Billy who is a sweet young man if I say so myself (and I just did, didn't I?)

I am raising my coffee mug to toast all the wonderful Bills I hear about in blogland, all the good marriages and families, and especially the two of you today.

Susan said...

Happy birthday to your sweet hubby and Happy Anniversary to you both.
Best wishes for many, many more of lovely celebrations.
Hugs, Susan

Happy Birthday to the good lookin' guy with the sweet wife. I think he got his B-Day present a few days earlier in the form of a gorgeous great grand daughter!

WELL HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL...and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you both. I hope this coming year will be the happiest yet! And I just have to say got married the same year I was born hehehe. Ok sorry..I just wanted to feel young for a moment.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions along the way. The most important thing about the nest is a non stick pan and not to cold. Don't forget to add a 2-3 Tbls. butter or shortening, if you melt the chips in the micro. I actually put my first batch in the freezer for a couple minutes (to set)and when I went to lift them out of the pan they were I had to place them in the oven for a few seconds than they popped right

The cupcakes were really easy too.
As you get to know me, you'll find I only do easy...;O

Sweet wishes,

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Happy Birthday Mr. Sweet. And Happy Anniversary too!
