Well that was interesting...

I had a birthday shout hooray...

I am now officially over 40 but still fabulous I must say (I decided this is my year for not expecting warm fuzzies or validation from others, but giving it to myself) far more fabulous than last year, but only because I've learned some new, life changing things from my Savior this year and through Him we can all feel fabulous. It's true. Really. You should try it.

So I figure if I continue to learn and grow I'll remain fabulous (no plastic surgery required) throughout my 40's, 50's, 60's (well fabulous sixties doesn't have quite the same ring to it does it, so we'll say...um...super or spectacular or splendorific (you get the idea) sixties and seventies. We'll figure out the eighties and nineties later. There's time).

My birthday was a bit interesting this year to say the least. Lets recap shall we...

1) My husband was out of town :(

2) The restaurant I wanted to take the kids to (I decided if I couldn't be with my husband I'd make a fun night out with my kids, remember personal validation and warm fuzzies) was closed due to a gas leak :(

3) I accidentally told someone that I didn't like the gift they got for me (this is an awkward somewhat HILARIOUS but terrible story that I may or may not share... but most likely not) :}

4) Jamie and Waylon tried to surprise me by nearly giving me a dead child for my birthday (this story I will share but later) :o

but on the brighter side...

5) It was also the first day of school and I am now officially an empty nester during school hours mom. :)
and

6) My sister-in-law made me a really yummy cake (that I ate. In my bed. 'round midnight. Cuz my hubby was gone) :D

Fabulous.

I think you need to share the story of telling someone you didn't like the gift they got you. Sounds like something I would do...I am so absent minded these days! Hope your birthday was an ok day anyways! Glad you found humor in it all...thats the best quality!
Happy Late Birthday!

Happy Birthday!!! You are SO fabulous. I am curious about the awkward hilarious embarassing gift situation, but I understand if you don't want to blog about it. (That might get you in trouble even more!) :)

Best wishes that the coming year will not have too many of those "interesting" days! I am anxiously awaiting the stories... Oh, and I wished you a happy birthday on facebook but I don't know if you ever check facebook anymore so just wanted to know I was thinking of you.

I thought about you on your birthday, but didn't make it to the computer. So glad you didn't get a dead child for your birthday! Can't wait to hear the story... Anyway, you deserve the best; hope it was happy in spite of all the snags!

Any day that ends with cake in bed at midnight can't be all bad. ;)
