My hubby Brad does. Every year on my birthday. Without fail. This year he was kind of sick, but I still received a beautiful pink confetti cake. Full of love and perfectly baked.
So...I'm 41 now or Tina version 4.1. I don't feel much different except I don't sleep like a baby like I did at 37 or even 38. The reason I GIVE my age is because people are so weird about age. As if it's something to be embarrassed about.."Oh, yeah..I'm sorry I'm over 40 now...at one point I was younger.." it's just dumb. When I was in my 20's I thought that 40 was OLD. Now that I'm in my 40's I find that I feel just fine. I think that overall I get lighter and happier as I age. Stupid things that are of no consequence generally don't bother me as much. If anything, I'm just smarter and more selective about how I spend my time and who I spend it with. We were supposed to be in Tucson this weekend visiting a good friend & her family. Everyone here is sick (I'm not anymore, but I did have a migraine that I thought was going to kill me.) and I guess Melissa's baby is sick AND it's only 26 degrees and snowing in Tucson. It just wasn't meant to be.
I had a great early dinner/late lunch with Brad on my bday at..oddly enough PF Changs. Not sure why, it just sounded good. I'm weird about making plans on my bday as I then feel stuck and find that I usually don't want to do what has been planned. I'm a bit weird like that. So I thought we were going to hit antique shops and at the last minute I thought "Let's take a weird left and go to Changs!" It as fun. I had an apple beer that was gluten free and quite yummy. We perused Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma afterward. I bought some very pretty mica shades for our lamps in the bedroom. They make me happy everyday. THAT is a good purchase. I felt loved and my head had stopped hurting, so it was a good day.
Found this pic today and I think I may have posted it months ago, but here's a reshare!! Me and my little sister Dawn in the late 70's. I loved these Santa Dolls!
And for ONCE I actually used my "FREE BDAY DRINK" coupon from Caribou!
Good Things, People. Good Things.
Happy Weekend. Rock this Saturday with all you've got!
