Wedding Countdown

Wedding Countdown Ticker

Thursday, October 9, 2008


Tuesday was my birthday... I turned 35. I heard from many friends that 35 would be a killer, one of looking at your life and bemoaning what you have yet to accomplish. I am happy to say that I have had very little of that. Yes, I am not where I thought I would be when I was 16 but it is ok... I would love to be married with kids but I have time yet and I have a great job and a few priceless friends that I would not change for the world.

Enough about that. The birthday was wonderful. My mother, father, and I spent the morning at the kitchen table with dogs running around while we read wonderful books. When Dad went off to take a nap, my mother and I went shopping. With Dad having surgery, birthday shopping was not in the cards. She felt guilty, I was ok with it. So off we went... I decided that I wanted a watch and we found a beautiful citizen with a couple of diamonds around the edge. When we got home, we found that my sisters and my youngest brother had arrived. The middle brother was on the way. Dinner was the usual raucaus fun affair with lots of laughs and good food. Helen made chocolate chip pumpkin shaped cakes that were delicous and they gave me a bag full of fun- the final 3 books in the Twighlight series, the latest book in the Inkheart series, and a book about Peter Pan by Dave Barry/ Ridley Pearson plus a fun picture of a frog taking a bulldog's picture...

Happy Birthday!
Although they're a cool story, just be aware that the Barry/Pearson books have a lot of mistakes from J.M. Barrie's original story.
If you're interested in capturing a little more of your youth, check out the new Peter Pan novel that's different from the's based on Barrie's own idea for more. Click on my name to see.

Happy Birthday. You may not be where you pictured, but the picture to me LOOKS great. Surrounded by family, you are healthy, happy and have a lot to live for. You are blessed!
I wish for you a fabulous year to come!!!
BTW I would love to see the pic of the bulldog/frog picture. Sounds cute.

Hello you!

Happy Birthday! I'm so sorry I'm late with the wishes, but I wish you many, many more amazing birthdays.

I'm 34. Don't worry, NO ONE is ever where they thought they'd be at 16. I actually NEVER saw myself being married...and wished that by 35 I'd be off on some great archeological dig in some distant land! Ha!

I've missed PPoP....give her kisses for me and from her fur-cousins. :-)

Sooooooooo happy to see your comment! How are your SISTAS?! How about your brother? I hope all went well with his surgery. I was blog surfing and read about it.

Oh, I changed the name of my blog again. Sorry! Promise, it's the last time! :-)

Hey, did you ever figure out if you'd like to come out here for a vacation!? Let me know! Can you bring PPoP?
