Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I am officially old enough to retire and get the Double Nickle discount at Uno's!  A banner birthday.  It was another of those bittersweet moments.  Last birthday I will be celebrating with a room full of little munchkins.  They sang to me several times today.  Once it was spontaneous on their part...I stepped out of the room and when I came back in they sang.  Awwww.  Sweet.  They told me Happy Birthday almost every time they passed by me.  It was a fun day...not very healthy, but fun.   Seriously, I ate about 1/4 of a homemade pecan pie...several homemade cookies...a muffin....and an ice cream bar!  The tights I had on today needed a more descriptive name than "tights".  ouch

Tasted even better than it looks with the cool candles!

My sweet husband surprised me at lunch with birhday muffins and he even remembered the candle!  I had perfect little surprises all over the house this morning and when I got home.  He's a pro!

See the guy trying to blow out my "candles"?  It took forever to get this photo and all I am thinking is, "Yikes.  We sent one home wiht strep today and this guy is blowing (with a fine mist) all over me!   I'm sure we will all be fine...

So, it was a wonderful birthday and I still have Zumba to look forward to...or maybe dread...after all those yummies today!


  1. YAY!! I got a look at that cute face of yours. And your ace husband - maybe I should get my husband to take some lessons from him. Umm. That's not a maybe. Happy Birthday, one old girl to another. I loved all these shots. And I know you're going to miss the classroom - but as my mother once said to me, "You'll get used to it."

    Many hugs!

  2. Thanks so much! My little husband did a superior job of celebrating my birthday with me. I usually know that God is on my side in a decision if I have peace...I have not one bit of angst about retirement...I'm already getting used to it! Even though I will miss few little things...
