Thank You

Y'all are too sweet.  I almost didn't blog about my birthday because I didn't want to make you think I was begging for well wishes.  But I am so glad that I did because your sweet words just made my dark day brighter.  If there is only one day a year when I am certifiable, it's my birthday.  But this year I did a pretty good job of keeping the blues at bay.

I slept in a bit, much to Sadie's dismay.  Then I took the day off and went out and about.  I got a second pair of jeans with the coupon I blogged about two days ago.  For a whopping $8 after the coupon and I LOVE them!  I am between sizes right now so they are on the big side.  But the next size down was snug.  And since I am not actively doing a darn thing to reduce my poundage (just being honest with y'all), I figured I should go for comfort.  They are perfect!  This is a great week for free coupon deals, which give me a strange and unexplainable high.  So I planned to make today the day when I went around snagging those deals and a few other little somethings along the way.  As lame as that sounds, I actually had a ball.  It was a cold but super sunny day, which goes a long way to put me in a better mood.  And I never listen to the radio mid-day so I have no idea if this is always true or if it was just yesterday, but the music is so much more fun at noon than at 8 AM or PM.  I have no shame when it comes to singing like a fool in the car.  Oh and I went to the grand opening of our brand new Hobby Lobby!  I am so excited to finally have this southern gem this far north.  I ended my day going to dinner with a close girlfriend- fish tacos and flan at my favorite local Mexican hole in the wall.  And came home to a lovable puppy, a zillion sweet notes on Facebook and Glee.  All in all, it was a pretty good birthday.  Very few tears shed.  A major improvement for me.  Growing up is hard to do at any age but amazing friends who love me really make my life so cheerful!

So thank you so much for being such awesome friends!  Y'all rock!

I just went to that Hobby Lobby yesterday. I spent 2 hours there and could have used about 3 more. WOW! 50% off just about everything I bought. It was great!
