Look..Look..Look!! I was wonderfully surprised yesterday when we got home after doing some just BEING OUT for my birthday!! See what i found by my front door? Wow!! Delivered flowers!! How often does this happen!! I usually have to have a baby for this to happen!!

I was so excited and bounced out of the car to go retrieve them..Mike was with me and i said did you do that? He just smiled great big!! I took it inside and went to open the card (with Mr. Smiley man still smiling)!! The card said, "Happy Birthday Girlfriend!! I hope you have a fab day...Love you..MELLI!! What a sweet thing to do for me...She lives way up in Maryland and thinks of me..WOW!! I was sure touched!! I looked at Mike and he said, "Well, I had you going for awhile, didn't I!!" AND he did!! Smartie!!

I did have a great day and want to thank all of you that stopped by to wish me a happy birthday and those who mentioned me on their blogs!! How wonderful to have friends!! WOW!! I am really happy!!

Today I had to work this morning at CURVES!! I am just doing this part time when they need me..so today I was needed. I do enjoy it when I don't have to go every day!! Makes it a little more FUN!!

What do you think this is?

This is 5 lbs of ugly, gross FAT!! We have this example at Curves for everyone to see!! Just think this stuff hangs on us..Especially we ladies!! UGH!! Horrible!! Made your day..I know!! smile...I sort of FELL OFF THE WAGON yesterday as far as eating correctly but am back on it today!! Hopefully to stay!! So hard to do!! I have gained weight but kept my inches off...I am building muscle..or at least I like to think that!! SMILE!!

Hope that your weekend will be a grand one!! Mine will!!

Well Halleluia! They sent the RIGHT vase this time! Usually when I order someone something with a real cute vase THAT is what they end up changing! They're pretty! I'm glad you liked them! And DIDN'T have to have a BABY to get them!!! Just a birthday!

Oh! I saw the CUTEST card yesterday - of course it was too late to buy and send it, so I didn't -- but on the front it said AGE is just another number... and inside So is weight - but we hate THAT one too! Needless to say - I thought of you! And ME! And Daisy... and Baba... and just about every friend I have! (though I hear Daisy's LOVIN' her numbers lately!!!) YAY!

Melli is a good friend; those are beautiful. I'd say your hubby owes you some since he took some of the credit.

happy belated to you!!!!
it sure breaks up the winter, to have a february birthday ...

but if someone would have left flowers outside my door - they would have frozen!!!! so glad the weather is warmer where you are at!

Happy Belated Birthday. This is what happens when I'm not on the computer for a week. Sounds like you had a lovely birthday, and what a special treat to receive flowers from Millie.

Yuck...that fat looks bad. Maybe now I will think about this picture the next time I want some chocolate!
Blessings,

Hmmm. I was thinking how lovely the "Lemon Curd" looked until you said what it really is. Bleah...start running in the morning.
