Birthday to me! August 30th was my "29th" Birthday (again.) Don't I wish ~ Actually I turned 37. Yikes, I can remember a time when that would have sounded old!! Where have the years gone?? Even though priorities have changed and such, I don't feel any different than when I was 20. Or even 30. I do have to say this was one of the most memorable birthdays ever!

Clint sent me a 'flower cake' which was just beautiful! The florist even delivered it in a cake box. Very original arrangement and different indeed! Saturday night I went out with my Mom's group for dinner. Lots of laughs and fun!! Sunday ~ the big day ~ Clint cooked breakfast for me. He had taken the girls shopping to pick out gifts. They blew up a zillion balloons it seemed and filled large gift bags to the tops with them. From the kids I got a garden rake, cutting board mats, and Hawaiian punch! Clint got me a much needed new video camera. (Hello Disney World!)

Several weeks ago I received an invitation to "anniversary" party. It just "happened" to be on my birthday. Of course, we arrived and as I walk in I hear "Surprise! Happy Birthday." And the "anniversary party" became a birthday party. A party for me. I won't lie ~ it wasn't a total surprise. I knew. I was suspicious from the start, but I wasn't entirely sure until earlier in the week. I even let on to Clint that I suspected something. I just didn't know who would be there or what exactly was planned. Clint and his accomplices had been plotting for over a month! It was really great to share the day with so many friends. I have to say this was one of the most memorable, special birthdays ever. A great day all around.


  1. Belated happy birthday to you!

    You should put up a photo of that flower cake, I'm wondering what that looks like.

  2. Happy belated birthday! I'm glad your birthday turned out relly good.
