You say it's your birthday....

It's my birthday too!!

It's been a good day today. I did have to go to work, but my day started off very nicely with a Happy Birhday mocha from my good friend Alicia. She stopped by before I left for work and also gave me a nice birthday gift. I'll have to do another post regarding part of her gift this morning. I need to take some photos for that.

Work wasn't bad today. I received many well wishes throughout the day. I love getting unexpected emails and calls from friends and family! I was pleasantly surprised to receive many birthday wishes from so many of my friends on Facebook too!

The only weird thing about today is that this is the first birthday since having my kids that they are not here to celebrate with me. In fact no one is here at the moment. Chico had to work late and the boys left yesterday on about a month long road trip with Granny. We're calling it Granny Tour 2008. Rose is on her sabbatical from Intel this summer (her 3rd or 4th), so she's taking the boys with her visiting family in Eastern Oregon and Idaho. Mateo just got back on Monday from a trip to Graceland with Granny too! While they were in Memphis, Jaxon went with Nona & Papa to the beach for 3 days. We only got to see the boys for one night and then they were off again. It's going to be weird without them for so long!

Anyway, back to me! It is my day after all (just kidding). I thought it would be fun to find some old birthday photos, but I didn't have any luck with that. So, I thought I'd at least post a couple photos to show that I really haven't changed much over these 38 years!! :)

I still like Pink!

I still have a lot of hair and on the days I don't straighten it, it's pretty big!

I'm still Sassy!

My belly still looks about like that in a swim suit!

I still have knobby knees! Mateo has my knees, too. I call him Obe Won K-nobby Knees!

Alright, that's enough. Thanks again to everyone for such a wonderful birthday!!
