Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, you read that right - today is my birthday!

Other than sports ( not even going into that today)  I had a pretty great day.

Angie drove on the interstate for the first time.  She went 7 miles - 4 exits.  She didn't do that bad.  We went to cracker barrel for breakfast. cracker_barrel

Then Angie and I went for some pampering.  We got pedicures, ( she got a manicure too - but for me no one but Lauren touches my claws)  massages, coffee.  It was fun and relaxing.

I got a really yummy Edible Arrangement which was great.  However, I told Curt at least 6 or 7 times in the last week or so that I REALLY WANTED A BIRTHDAY CAKE!  I mean I just flat out told him!  No subtle hints or anything, which don;t work on men anyhow.  And NO BIRTHDAY cake:(  

Oh well, I guess I'll survive.

I was recently in a swap on Ravelry for Creepy Cute Crochet creatures.  I'm not telling until my partner gets her package what I made for her, but I made another creature for me!  My new mascot to watch hockey games with!

Your Birthday is Purple

You are the independent type. It's hard for people to peg, label, or stereotype you.

You enjoy people and things from all walks of life. You're incredibly open minded.

You tend to be a bit fickle and even moody. You can end up hating what you love and vice versa.

Your preferences and actions can be a bit mysterious at times. It's hard to predict what you'll do.



  1. Hau`oli La Hanau to you my friend. Sounds like you did have a great birthday with or without a cake. Maybe Curt is like me and can't bake LOL Interesting facts. Anyhoo...hope you had a great day. I'll do my HBD on my blog tomorrow morning :)

  2. I am glad it was such a good day, and thank goodness my daughter started baking cakes for a living or I wold never see one either~~~
