Happy Birthday to Me!!!

I'm turning 31 today :)  And I'm uber-excited about the whole thing :)  I was actually giddy with anticipation starting about 9pm last night.  I went to the mail box and checked the mail....anticipating birthday cards.  Alas...there were none in sight but I did have a package.  My giveaway goodies from Rue had finally arrived.  I won the Self Care cards in a giveaway she held a few months back...and after some waiting and a pretty long delay (all due to someone breaking into my mailbox and scratching my name off the card in it)....I finally got the cards.  As well as some unexpected treats.....a braid of sweet grass and some uber-yummy absinthe lip balm.  Happy Birthday to me!!!  Thanks so much Rue...you rock!!!!

Aren't they pretty???

My morning was awesome.....quiet time w/ my computer and coffee.  Much love from friends on my Facebook wall, a few text messages and calls from two of my best friends.  Last night was positively awesome though.....I, in a painkiller induced haze, decided to clean my desk (which took 2 hours) and bake some pumpkin bread to enjoy w/ this mornings coffee.  K (the wonderful human she is) had some last night when it was done.  She broke off one of the corners, stuck a toothpick in it, put flame to that little stick of wood and sang me "Happy Birthday".  For two chicks on a budget....I applaud her inventive thinking :)  Thanks K....it was an awesome B-day cake :) 

Today will consist of lounging....I will have to do some laundry at some point.  And then here in a few hours it's off to a friends house for a spaghetti dinner (to celebrate mine and another's birthdays) and watching the kiddos play on a slip and slide.  It will be an aweome day :)

I hope you all have an awesome Saturday!!!!

Happy Birthday! Glad you got your 'cake' (I love pumpkin!) and have had a good day. Lounging is the best thing to do on a day just for you!

Hugs!
