I love having a birthday, I love getting to enjoy Earth & life longer, but the overall notion of adding a number, watching that digit roll up... bah humbug! I'm in denial. People think I'm crazy. "You're not old!", "Age is just a number.", "Having a birthday is better than the alternative of dying, right???" To that I say.....
DUH! I realize my ridiculous birthday antics of denying the larger number only makes it worse and is quite dramatic. Have you met me?!?! I AM THE EPITOME OF DRAMA! Now, don't get me wrong... I don't create 'drama'. I'm more of a theatrical drama kind of a gal. Anyway, Happy Birthday to me! (yesterday)
As a pre-Birthday present to myself, one of my best friends and I treated ourselves to pedicures.
Quite frankly, pedicures make me squirmy. I have a bit of a 'bubble' when it comes to extended physical contact. I'm exceedingly ticklish (don't use this against me!) and so a pedicure is generally not my idea of a good time. This was only my second one and.... I didn't hate it! :o) It was really nice and I may try to treat myself again sometime.

Then yesterday my daddy woke me up by banging loudly on the door. Scared the snot outta me, as I was sleeping in, as a Birthday Lady should!
Ooooooh! A present... FOR ME! Yes, I am an adult who gets Birthday presents from her parents. I'm spoiled. I am the baby. What of it?
Hot ziggs! It's CANDY! nom nom nom! I do love a good candy fix. I often pester my husband, "Can I have some candy?" I often say to my teaching partner, "let's go get some candy." I get cravings for the sweet stuff. I should be set up for a week or two. ;o)
Lucky me! I also got sweet cards from my parents and in-laws with $$$. Wow! Way to make a girl feel loved. :o)
Husband and I enjoyed a matinee showing of Snow White and the Huntsman. Naturally, I loved it. I really truly did. I'd watch it again. I know Kristen Stewart gets a hard time for her acting and lack of facial emotion but she was perfect in that part. And Charlize Theron, dang! She makes it easy to hate her but she's dang gorgeous while doing it!
After a movie is the perfect time for a PHOTO SHOOT! I wore a cute outfit, of course. ;o)
All in all, it was a Very, Merry, "Un-Birthday" to me!

"How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog--it's here a little while, then it's gone." James 4:14 NLT
I am incredibly blessed far beyond what anyone deserves. I pray that my life glorifies Jesus and brings honor to God, my Heavenly Father. Thank you, Jesus, for more time on this Earth to tell about you. Help me to live in a way that's pleasing to you.
Get your fashion on!
