It's my Birthday!

This is me 31 years ago...


and this is me now...

WOW, 32 smackaroos!

It seems just like yesterday... well it was yesterday that I was thinking about how I was going to be 32 years old, and now I am. Hmmm...feels the same, and that's a good thing, right?

What a lovely morning it was. I awoke to the smell of hot pancakes. Yum! Marie prepared an awesome meal of pancakes and pineapple chunks, what a sweet child of mine. After breakfast it was present time. I always am amazed at the creativity of these girls of mine. I love the homemade gifts from them, it warms my heart.


Check out the legs on my picture, if that is how my legs look in real life, I need to get moving before the Fighter Ball (Yes!!!, we are going this year!) or our beach holiday.

I got an email early this morning from my favorite person, it made my heart do a flip flop. I knew I wasn't going to be able to hear his voice on this day, but the email is the next best thing, especially since I know he had to get up super early his time before things were at a standstill on the ship.

We treated ourselves to a milkshake this afternoon from Chik-fil-a. Man I need to stay away from there, but they are soo good. Come May I have to be very disciplined if I am going to look halfway decent for the prom, I mean Ball.

On the menu for dinner tonight is my all time, hands down, favorite food since I was a itty bitty girl, spaghetti with meat sauce. Oh the smell, if computers had smell-o-vision your face would be planted against your screen, trust me I make a mean meat sauce. How's that for a visual. Start off with a side salad, made by Chef Madison and garlic bread by Chef Mikayla and call it a day! (pictures for that tomorrow-I am too tired now to load them). No-bake cheesecake is for desert, but that will have to wait until later, because tonight we are going to our first community small group at church. I am nervous, but we are going!


Okay, if you have read this far and you have come here from Face Book, thanks so much for all the Birthday wishes! Oh, and come back more often and see what's going on in our neck of the woods.


How blessed I am to be the Momma of these sweet girls.
Chat later!
