It's ME birthday!


A very silly photo of me at age 5 in Kindergarten.


Woo-hoo! It's been 35 years since I popped out of my mom and started my life. That sounds weird, huh? Well, I'm in a kinda weird mood and hoping for a great day. The past few days have been a lovely blur already....

*A super Hello Kitty birthday gift from the always-wonderful-Donna...who spoils me to pieces.

*Celebrating Caroline's birthday on Wednesday night with TWO cakes...each more delicious than the other. Is that possible?

*Being surprised by Ian's coworkers with lunch AND more cake yesterday.

*The arrival of a yummy yarn gift (and the most adorable card) from Julie

*My mom setting up a cleaning crew to come and clean my house!!! Yippeeee!

*My sister getting me tickets to the Maroon5 concert in July which, sad to say, is that first concert I've been to in 20 years. Oh, man!

*Several grandmothers sending me money - which may or may not go to buying yarn...(I must try to be practical, right???)

*And, Ian, for the first time in a few years, remembering it was my birthday (in the morning!) and being the first to wish me Happy Birthday.

Whew! And the day has just begun! I have numerous, awesome pictures of gifts and such (and my new FO) to show you, but I guess it will have to wait until the next post.

I'm so excited!

Wow, will your mom adopt me? I could use a cleaning crew at my house.

I'm happy your birthday is starting off so well; I hope it continues that way right up until you go to sleep :)
