And wiser too

Today is my birthday.  My first 29th birthday.  I plan on having many more of these.  I figure when you find something that works, you should stick with it.  My husband is out of town and was worried that I wouldn't do anything for my birthday (he knows me too well).  He needn't have worried.  I went to lunch with my friend Janelle and ate this:

And then, despite it being my last day of work at my temp job, we had some of this:


Then I picked up Eli and drove to Material Girls to pick up Lorelei from her quilting guild meeting.  She made this for me:



And my sister bought me this:



and this:



We came home, ate dinner, and then my wonderful (and talented) friend and neighbor brought over this:



How cute is that?  Needless to say, I now feel like this:



But I do also feel very thankful for such wonderful family and friends.

Happy birthday Jandi! I've been trying out 29 for a couple months now, and the verdict is that it's pretty great. I think you'll like it :-) Glad you had a great birthday!

Happy birthday! I had my "first annual 29th birthday" last year. And just about 3 weeks ago, I had my 30th birthday. I had a rough time with that number, mainly because I didn't do some of the things I thought I would but then I did other things I never thought I would and once I came to terms with it, 30 is not a big deal. But I might decide somewhere down the road to go back to celebrating those 29th birthdays again. But 30's looking pretty good! (I did have a small freak out when filling out my census form because I had to write 30!)

Happy birthday Jandi. 29 was a good year (but so are all the rest). Skip 35 though - it was a bummer.
