Happy Monday bloggies! How was everyone's weekend? Great? Good! One week from today and by God's grace, I will be celebrating my 45th birthday! Yes that's right, I'm that old! As is customary in my world, I start celebrating the last week of September and the entire month of October! Too much? Eh, what is too much celebration anyway? Plus, I'm still young (in my mind anyway) and still terribly cute! What more could I ask for? So to start off my birthday week, I thought I'd tell y'all about this one time at band camp... KIDDING! Seriously, I thought I'd share one of my favorite birthday memories. I guess I love the hype leading up to the big day and the celebrating that ensues because as a kid, my mom would always make a big production. Sure, it may have had something to do with the fact that it was also her birthday, ( I was her 21st birthday gift) but nevertheless, a BIG deal! I turned 9, and my dad used to work at a Golf/Resort in Conroe. There was a huge skating rink on the property. I begged my parents to let me have a skating party there. "We can't afford that place, let's just go to the neighborhood skating rink" was my mom's response. My dad on the other hand, set a plan in motion. Since he worked at the restaurant there, he "knew" people. So somehow, some way, my daddy made it so that not only did we get the entire rink to ourselves and our guests for a few hours, but there were clowns, and cake and ice cream, and balloons, lots of balloons on that day. I was a very happy little girl. But I think what makes it even more memorable today, is recalling the look of happiness in my mom and dad's eyes, for being able to make me so happy. It was awesome!
That was mine, what's a favorite of yours?
It's a new week! Make a FABULOUS one! :)
