36

Today turned out to be a wonderful surprise. I didn't expect much (with a busy husband and 3 sons and a 2 year old girl, you just can't expect too much) and they really made a nice day of my birthday. I had a few friends that really made it special too. You might be surprised to find out that one of my favorite presents was the Muppet Show seasons 1 and 2 on DVD given to me by my husband and the kids. I love those Muppets and I have wanted these for a long time, but couldn't justify putting them in my virtual basket as I shopped. We went out to breakfast at a cool restaurant called Wild Eggs here in Louisville. I did a little shopping all by myself. Then, tonight a friend came and babysat the kids while we saw "Sherlock Holmes." I loved it.

Melissa (thanks for the birthday wishes) has posted the soldered post cards on her blog right here. Thanks to you for all the kind birthday wishes. I really do read all the comments and appreciate your words. I love when you tell me that you have tried a recipe and it worked or when you show me something that you have crafted. Thanks for always being such dang cool people in this virtual world. It makes life fun when sometimes it can be a bit hard!!!

So, as the day winds down, I have to say 36 is pretty great.

Happy Birthday, honey. I think you should celebrate for at least a week! You are so fortunate to have so many dear friends and a clever husband who took the cue and got you the Muppet Show DVD's. Love, Mom

Traci, I'm really not the WORST friend, it just seems like it at times. HAPPY Belated BIRTHDAY. When we can we go out? I'll talk to Melissa and the gang (do we belong to a gang?). Happy b-day and next year I'm not going to St. Louis so I can be here for it:).

Happy Happy Birthday!

Glad they treated you right!

My husband and I snuck in Sherlock this week too and I so enjoyed it! Just the right mix of camp and wit.
