It’s my birthday! If I saw you on the street, I’d never tell you it was my birthday because it’s so “hey, tell me how awesome I am! Aren’t you beyond ecstatic that I was born?” But here, I feel okay about it.

This day is still young and already it’s been a fantastic day. My Mom and Dad sent me a swimsuit I’ve been eyeing for weeks, my sisters sent me a gorgeous gray sweater (I love sweaters; one cannot own too many sweaters) and a headband (this is awesome because I sent both of them a shirt and a headband for their birthdays), and the Tates (my in-laws) sent me a personalized Swiss Army knife (which is perfect because we’ve been working on our first-aid/emergancy prepardness lately), a cookbook, and a big bag of cinnamon chips (hooray!). (How can ANYONE write without parenthases? They are almost as necessary as oxygen).

At work, one of my co-workers, who is a Mary Kay rep, gave me a bottle of perfume and another gave me a little jewelry box. The office bought an ice cream cake and we’re ordering in lunch.

I’ve received some very nice emails from family and friends . . . I know some really nice people. I’ll keep them.

Anyway, Happy Birthday to me!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I’m very much of the opinion that my birthday should be like a national holiday or something, so I’d be really disappointed if you DIDN’T blog about it being your birthday. They’re special days.

    If you were a little bit closer, I’d definitely bake for you.

    The bathing suit and the sweater are both very cute and I’m sure you will look great in both. Enjoy your birthday weekend!
