Celebrating in Style

Friday, June 08, 2012

Well the big day has arrived... I'm forever 39. Started the big day off on the right foot. I ran to the office this morning, I've been wanting to do it forever and I finally had the opportunity to. Perfect time for me to try out my birthday gift the DH got me. A Garmin Forerunner 410 - this is the coolest gadget ever, I'm hoping it will help improve my running - it's high tech going to take me a while to figure out how to make that watch work to it's potential so I can work up to mine.

DH let me order the watch from Amazon, but he slipped out to the store last night for a surprise. He awoke me this morning with a lovely card, and he bought me this new awesome cup for my smoothies and to take with me on vacation, what a thoughtful gift and quite a surprise too.

My DD came by the office to deliver some balloons, and she bought me some of those big mamma jamma windchimes I've been wanting forever. She is such a ray of sunshine. We enjoyed a healty lunch at Cracker Barrel with lots of veggies and only ONE biscuit for me. Woo Hoo.

One the way back from lunch, this dude backed into my car - well Happy Birthday to me, lol. Whatcha gone do? Just laugh it off, it could have been so much worse, but thankful that it wasnt. That big black line, is a deep gash in my car, oh well - the guy was nice and apologetic, and I've already filed a claim, no harm done, just aggravation now to get it fixed.

Looking forward to a nice dinner with some ole friends. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. But one last thing.......

I've been saving this one all week....

It's last call at this party, so....

let's live it up.....

everybody out of your seats and.....

wobble with me....

    Great birthday, love your Garmin, something I've thought about as well. Can't wait to hear how it's working out for you. Glad you had a great day, aside from the fender bender!

    And a Happy B'day to you. Guess what????? I bought my wife the very same Garmin. Did you know that it's also a heart rate monitor? Best of luck with it.

    OMGosh - of all things to happen - A FENDER BENDER... But I know you won't let that get you down. It's just a thang.
    How sweet of the DH and DD. You have a great loving family.
    Cracker Barrell. I WISH. We don't have one within a 100 mile radius of where I live. Sheesh I really do live in the boonies...Ha Ha Ha. Maybe - just maybe - When I do finally get to come down to Virginia Beach for a visit you can take me to one. The SH was saying just the other day how beautiful he heard it was and we should go visit you... Hee Hee.

    I WANT YOUR CUP!!!! Did he get it at Bed, Bath & Beyond? Very nice. (It's the little things...) Score on the Garmin, too! Very, very nice!! Sucks on the car though, but you're right, it can be fixed. No sense in getting all worked up. You are blessed to have such a wonderful family. You Lucky Girl!!!

    Enjoy the rest of your day. How can you not? Wobble on!!!
