Happy birthday! Hey, 33 is not so bad. :-) But then you do have to face facts that you are "in your 30's." Had myself that realization this summer. Yikes, huh? Hope you had a wonderful day.

Tami said...

Happy Birthday!!!! Wow, what a bunch of great things. I must agree with you on lots of them!

Syna said...

You're so sweet, girl! I'm so glad you're my friend.

What a good writer you are, I really enjoyed getting to know you better just by reading your blog!

Take care, Sweetie, I'll see you tonight!

Jen said...

Hope you had a great birthday! wow so 32 eh? Glad you have at least 32 wonderful things to be happy about. personally I am dreading the fast approaching 30's, but its good to know that I can survive them if you can. My question for you is this...when the heck did I grow up enough to be a soccer mom? Lord help us all if I ever seriously consider a minivan, that will be the official end of Jen.

Jeannie said...

Okay, let me clarify, here, folks. Aaron did take me away for my birthday, but we only went an hour away for one night. The California thing is just something he says when the kids get on our last nerves...

Angele said...

are you a fellow Enya junkie??? or do you mean something else by 'Watermark'?

I'm with you on the hot peanut butter toast but I'll take mine with hot chocolate =)...and the Target popcorn + a frozen coke

Holly said...

You crack me up!!! Happy B-day!!!

Carrie said...

Happy belated b'day! I should remember since you and Jess shared the same day! My big day is next week! 30 augh! I can't believe it! I'm sure I'll survive, but I am really not looking forward to it! Happy day!
