A Great Birthday

Oh, what a day!

24 years ago today at 2:27 pm, I was born in a Navy Clinic in 29 Palms, CA. This clinic is now where you go to get your ID card.

My plan today was to scan various pictures of the ways we have celebrated in the past. You all would have had a good laugh at some of my hair styles and clothes....but, I never got my scanner today (I was lazy).

It's been a great birthday. It started last week when Tammi called my voicemail and sang Happy Birthday to me. I saved it and even listened to it today. It made me smile big! I must say, Tammis is my favorite "Aunt" even from my real family...and the only one that wished me a happy birthday! :-) (It's ok, I don't claim the others, lol)

Another friend of mine called and sang happy birthday on my voicemail.

Then Bou and her boys called my voicemail and sang happy birthday to me. I had a big smile!

Throughout the week while in Denver (more details later), I spoiled myself at the company's expense. Great meals! Great fun!

I arrived in an Atlanta yesterday and went to have a facial, courtesy of Morrigan. So kind, and what a way to relax after an exhausting trip! I also got to meet Bou and the boys and got 3 beautiful pictures from the boys.

Today was a day to just relax and not worry about ANYTHING! No unpacking, no cleaning, no errands!

I bought myself the memory card I have been needing for my phone. Now I'll have music on the go! :-) I went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Willy Wonka is one of my fav movies). It was to come later.

I picked up my yummy southern meal and some vanilla ice cream to go with Morrigan's yummy brownies.

I came home to eat and my absolutely favorite episode of Extreme Home Makeover was on. Nothing like something warming your heart on your birthday!

The day has been full of phone calls, e-cards, emails and trackbacks wishing me a Happy Birthday. I'm a very lucky person!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! You helped make this a wonderful day!

AND we are 39 away from 10,000!! Thanks to a lot of wonderful blogger friends and family sending readers my way!

Happy Birthday! I would send you a Maid Rite but I am afraid the loose meat wouldn't travel well...
