Terese's birthday was last week. Everyone wave at Terese! Yoo Hoo, Terese! Happy Birthday!

I always enjoy buying birthday presents, but this particular shopping trip was especially enjoyable. Because I had a theme. I LOVE theme presents.
I had decided that Terese's workspace was far too......plain. Mundane. Boring. Blah. Aha! I had my theme: items to bling up her desk. So I headed over to one of those big discount stores. I plopped myself onto one of their scooters and began to cruise the store.

I picked up some gold-tone file clips and metallic toned Sharpies. But I thought this gift still needed something to add a little punch. Hmmm.....
I was circling the store in search of that special item that would coordinate the overall effect. When I spotted a necklace somewhat like this, I knew I had my answer. I needed to bling out Terese, too.

Oh, boy! Now I can start
