It’s My Gift In A Box

Redskin48-016Good morning! Today is my birthday, and it started off with a gift from my husband, sans chimp-hands.

I got my first birthday greeting at the crack of dawn.

Redskin48-019The mailman had scads of birthday cards for me (crossing my fingers there’s no glitter; I hate hate hate glitter!)

Redskin48-014My girls are coming over to fix me up, Sandra Dee style.

Redskin48-018A fabulous party is planned for the noon hour.

Redskin48-024Toasts will be made in my honor.

Redskin48-020In fact, the entire state will raise their hats to me.

Redskin48-021And when the sun goes down, the hub and I may throw caution to the wind and share a bottle of unpasteurized milk.

Redskin48-015We know how to party.

  1. It’s really your Birthday? Well Happy Birthday. I hope you get a bunch of cards,none with glitter and all of your presents are things you want. And surely you can celebrate with something better than milk. Well Happy Birthday.

    1. Yes, ’tis! Thanks. My coffee has already been better than milk. Riesling is chilling. I had a dark chocolate lemon black pepper bar last night, and it was oddly delicious. I have plans to change out of pajama bottoms at some point and maybe do laundry. Whoo-hoo!

  2. Hendle said it best–the world would be so much less interesting without you, Kerbey 🙂 Though from the looks of your photos, you’re doing quite well today. Woke up to that early a.m. calling looking a bit frumpy and then you cleaned up pretty good. Positively stunning by the time the p.m. dairy break rolled around.
