Happy Birthday to ME!

Not normally one to toot my own horn, I am taking this time to tell myself Happy Birthday!  hehehee...  It has been such a great day so far. 


My in-laws are visiting and brought me such a wonderful present-- blue cornflower CorningWare (an 8x8 square baker and an oblong tray with carrying rack)-- very lovely!  We went out for lunch and they have volunteered to watch the kiddos while dh and I go out tonight.   I am definitely a lucky-ducky today!


I have NO idea what we are going to do...maybe a movie (but there's usually nothing good to see), maybe a little shopping (although we've been spending too much money on our little house remodeling), maybe just some good ice cream and conversation... Oh and some coffee for me since my dear friend Suzanne got me a Starbucks gift card with waaay too much money on it (you just wait until it's YOUR birthday...I'll get you back!).   It really doesn't matter what we do, so long as we're together...and uninterrupted conversation is a welcome change from the usual noise that accompanies dinner at our house (although I'm sure I'll miss that noise one day!).


Thanks so much to those who have already sent their b-day wishes!  And in case any of you were wondering, I am not turning one today (unlike what my profile may say) but am in fact turning 31. :-)  I'm a weirdo that really likes getting older!  Seriously.  I think it just gets better and better!!!


And while I have y'all on the line, please pray for my sister Coco as she is possibly in labor right now... It's a very good day for little Emily to be born!  Plus, she'll have a fabuloso birthstone!


Hope y'all have a great night!  Don't wait up for me, okay?

Glad you got a date night out with your hubby. That's how I'd like to spend

my birthday. I'll be 31 in July. Seems like this year flew by. I was so happy to join the 30 and over club! Now I'm a certified adult! :) And I'm like only gets better with each year.

Again... and thanks for your words of encouragement on my blog... I'd love to hear the dress issue story sometime (my curiousity has me wondering which side of the issue you're on...)

As for letting go of this friendship, it's the last thing I want to do, but I have been wondering for a while when it would come to this... that may be where this is heading, I don't know, maybe the Lord is doing a work in me, I have been feeling a sense of needing to really pull in the reigns and define the standards I feel the Lord is leading me to hold (especially with my children) and not to keep moving the markers... and this relationship has tempted me to compromise more than once in the past, so maybe it's not so good for me...

Well, happy birthday anyway, enjoy your time with your hubby,

thanks again for your input,

I missed your birthday. Happy Be-lated birthday Marsha! I haven't been on to read much lately but wanted to let you know that I am praying for Coco. Yes, I understand how she must feel. I hope her little blessing arrives healthy, safe and soon.
