My Birthday

Damn. I feel the love!!

I haven't had suck a stellar birthday in.....I can't even remember how long. Although my birthday wasn't until Sunday, we started celebrating on Friday the 13th. The ladies from work took me out to lunch, gave me a $50 Ulta gift card and the funniest pickle card I'd ever seen. We laughed for about two hours straight. I love those ladies.

Then I came home and figured Jason had something up his sleeve. He'd organized a few folks to come over to celebrate. You know how I like a stiff drink and some company. Chad, Christy, Cory, Scott and a new friend Julie, all came to hang out. We ate pizza, drank, played drinking games, laughed, and finally danced. From 6 pm to well after midnight. I'm not that young anymore. I got a pretty cool Harley headband from the Meyer's. And my honey.....he really came through. He bought me a pretty new wedding band. It's beautiful. :)

Saturday, well I was a bit...tired...from the festivities the previous night. So we took it easy. Jason and had a great date night at the Melting Pot. The food was fantastic and the company was even better. :)

Sunday, church time, shopping, light lunch and dinner with my parents. My mom always makes me a good spaghetti dinner and chocolate cake for my bday. I also got more presents from Sally (a bottle of Crown) and a $50 spot from my mom and dad. Great day.

Not to mention I received several cards in the mail from folks. IN THE MAIL. How sweet is that? I love snail mail.

I'm feeling very blessed and thankful for all the friends and family I have. Happy birthday to me.

Bike Week

I'm excited. Thrilled. Beyond!

We are going to Bike Week in Panama City again this year. I'm THRILLED cause we are going with our good friends (Cory & Scott and Chad & Christy). I'm BEYOND cause I'll get to pull my fancy ass trailer down and roll on my stylin' ass bike.

Live to ride.....ride to live. That's me bitches!

Jason and I had several fights this summer about chickens. He wanted them and I didn't. Standard Jason Burden hobby request but this one veto'd by the wife. Not just a NO but a HELL NO.

So imagine my surprise when I turned on the news this evening and the opening story was about a proposed bill to approve chickens in regular neighborhoods in metro. Really? I have learned to grasp my southern roots however, chickens in city yards? Opening story on the news? Am I the only one that sees a problem with this? I wouldn't want to look over the fence and see chickens in my neighbor's yard (cause you know they won't be in mine).

Here's my push for no chickens!

January 2

We were off work today. Olivia had a playdate & Tyler slept so Abbe and I snuck off for a little time together. Target, manicure and habatchi for lunch. So yummy! Then, we had an appointment with American Home Design to price out a screened patio. Get this --- for a 18x20 screened porch its 50k. I almost died........looks like well stick to the bug spray lol. Jason and I had a spat about the whole experience but that's nothing new I guess.

So all in all a great day! Really dread going to work tomorrow. Getting out of the routine sucks.

Hope you have a happy Tuesday!

Out with the old.....

2012. Can you believe it? Time goes by so fast. Yesterday, I spent a little time cleaning out my closet. Clothes, shoes, bags -- too much junk. Lately I've been feeling the same about some people in my personal life too. Junk. People that are out for themselves, those that bring drama to my life. In 2012 they have to go. It will be a bit painful but all for the better. Same with family. Very tired of a select group of folks that stir the pot all the time. I recently was challenged by some bullshit but was able to take the high road and not start WW3.

This is not a negative start to 2012 but rather a very positive one!! Bring it!
