Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

37 and Counting!

It's my Birthday, I can cry if I want to:) Booo Whoo!! Naaay, not doing that...yet...saving it for the big 40!

I'm celebrating today! Notice the new "du" above. That's the singing birthday card sister P gave me for my birthday. Inside it said, "Remember: what happens at the dessert cart stays at the dessert cart. Indulge a little on your birthday." Oh so true for me. When we go out to eat, dessert is the first menu I look at:) So this card is my new motto! I've been looking for a new "du" for the blog and this was it. I wanted a style that was me. And this is so it! Family, friends and sweets! Can't get any better than that! It sang the song, "Awww Sugar, Aww Honey, Honey...." Love it!! Thanks Sister P!

I've had a long weekend. Yes, my work observes Columbus Day!! Hubby, son #2, BT, KT and HT met us for dinner at Abuelos on Sat. night. Loved it!! Had a great time! Icing on the cake.....snickers blizzard at DQ!! OMG!!! Good!! Fun, Food and Shopping!! KT gave me a book "Wednesday Letters" complete with a box of kleenex. She knows me all too well! Love you girl!!

Nothing could compare to what yesterday was. We have a new song. Goes like this...sing with me...."1 thousand hick-o-ry nuts on the ground, 1 thousand hick-o-ry nuts, pick one up, dump in bucket, 999 hick-o-ry nuts....."

I have been known to hug a tree or three, but I'm seeing 4 hickory trees going down;-)

Today I have received phone calls, e-mails and text messages wishing me a Happy Birthday! Thanks ya'll..I love you so much!!!

Guess what Hubby got for my birthday.....a yard sweeper:) I've dreamt of one for so long! And my dream came true:)

I love 37!!!!!

Happy Birthday Carrie. I knew we had lots in common. You have to know I think that if I were diagnosed with diabetes it would be a potential life sentence. I love sweets!!! And crying at books, movies, commercials?? We must be sisters....

Happy Birthday my dear friend!

What do you mean you'd be crying if it were forty? You'll be giving me a box of kleenex in December!

Lot's of love and best wishes on this your special day!!!

Speaking of The Wednesday Letters, I work with Jason and thought you’d like knowing he has a new contest on his web site where you can win a free trip-for-two to his hometown in VA, the Shenandoah Valley. All you have to do is mail him a Christmas card! All the details are here:
