Happy Birthday To Me

Annie was crying last night when I put her to bed because she hadn't made me a birthday card yet. I told her it was ok and I'd love her to make me one the next day. At 6:30 this morning I heard banging around in the kitchen and Annie was coloring as fast as she could to come up with a birthday card for me. She came running in to me to wish me a Happy Birthday. Nothing beats being covered by kisses first thing in the morning. What a great way to start my birthday.
I've felt especially grateful for the friendships I've been blessed with in my life. I've moved so many places and have made wonderful friends along the way. Some have been my friend since I was 13. Thank you to all my dear friends and family who have made my day a happy one. I feel loved. Here are a couple pictures from my girls retreat in Alabama. Amy made a to die for cake and I'm wishing she was here to make me another one. It seriously is the best chocolate cake in the world. Life is good at 33.

Meta, Me, Amy, Sara, and Kim

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a good one. Nothings better than homemade birthday cards. She is too cute.
Looks like you had fun in Alabama.

Okay, that picture made me cry! I was just about to send you a Happy Birthday email, but I checked your blog first. I wish I was there to make you a cake (or you were here to make me one). No cake for me this year, I think.

You've had an amazing 33 years, my friend. I hope to know you at least 33 more.

Love,
Amy

Happy birthday, my friend! I wish I had remembered so I could have called! I am glad it was a good day! You are a rocking hot mama at 33 and I am glad that we got to know each other 4 years ago. I hope you get to come visit again and I'll make you a cake too! :)

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great one. You still look young enough to be making out in the back seat of a volvo :)

Ok, I'm crying because I didn't make you a card, or for goodness gracious, even an e-card for your birthday. But, I hope you know that I love you and wish you all the best for this year and many more to come.

If we were together for your birthday we'd have to make sticky squares, caramel popcorn, your chicken pot pie, your chicken parmesean (or any of your recipes, o-wise-woman who taught me to make a roux and cook with bullion!), and wash it down with a big ol' diet coke. Play a game of pinochle and talk about going to the gym. Ahhhhh...the good ol' days.

Happy Birthday! love you!!!

Heidi, I am so sorry this is so belated! I hope you had a very happy birthday. I love the pictures of all of you. Hope you are having a good day today. You look beautiful, by the way!
