Happy Birthday TO ME!


Just for kicks here's a picture of me on my 21st birthday. It seems like it was just yesterday. And 34 seemed ages away....yet here it is. I sure was skinny, but at the time I thought I was so fat. There's a story behind the red dress. I wanted a knock out red dress to wear for my birthday. Red is my fav color but I didn't own a single red piece of clothing. A few days before a friend and I had gone to the mall in search of THE dress. By some miracle, this is what we found. A cherry red 100% silk tank dress on clearance for $15! There was one left --- in my size. I wasn't sure about it when I tried it on, but my friend talked me into it telling me it would be fine once I had my make up on, hair done, and the right shoes on. I guess she was right. I was WAY over dressed for the sports bar we were at. I went out by myself that night. When I walked in, one of my friends yelled as loud as she could "WOAH MEL!" Everyone turned to look to see who she was talking about. All of the 10 people (?) or so that were in the bar at 9:00. LOL!! The guy I was dating had just told me it wasn't working out and he wanted to be just friends. I was so crazy for him. He drove me insane! And he met me there to hang out and celebrate. I think that was part of the motivation to find THE dress! LOL! If I remember correctly, I went out the next night as well with a different group of friends. Ah, those were some fun times. I did get lots of use from that $15 red dress. I wore it to countless parties, Christmas parties, clubs.... I think it was almost falling apart when I finally tossed it!!!
