Happy birthday to MEEE!

Friday is my favorite day of the week anyway... lucky that it's my birthday too! Today I am 29, which makes me the same age as my mother (it's a biological miracle). My mother-in-law gave me the gift of cold, hard cash which translated into a trip to Archiver's. I had a blast. (Actually some of this stuff I bought a few weeks ago when Scrapbook Corner was closing. sob)

I have to say, even I am surprised at how much Basic Grey I bought, considering that my usual amount is none. I don't know why, I just found the colors in those papers really appealing. (Lest you think I am abandoning long-held principles, though, rest assured that I didn't like any of the other BG lines that I saw. Not even the Christmas ones.) Anyway, they were having a sale on Thickers and if there is one thing I love, it's discounted letter stickers in cute fonts and innovative materials. And seeing my new stuff all laid out reminds me that Betsy made a very astute observation (which I was too preoccupied to notice): that Archivers has the exact same countertops as my kitchen.

I also went to the BMV to get my new license. I was in and out in about fifteen minutes, which is crazy. Next up is making my cake - I think I'll put some peppermint extract in the chocolate frosting, because it's my birthday and I can do whatever I want. Nyah.

On a sad note, Betsy figured out today that 'scissors' begins with an S and not a Z. Oh well. There's always a bright side, and today the bright side is that Porter has been going around singing: "On the one day of Christmas, my true love gave to me... A pine tree."

I am totally with you on the new BG - my usual is zero as well!

And a little salt in any wound that you might have - went to the American Crafts warehouse sale yesterday - Thickers were 10 for $10. Do you hate me? :)

Oh and happy birthday, too. Weird - when I woke up, I had the feeling that today was someone's birthday - that someone is you!

Happy Birthday Joni!! Just one more year until 30... Hope your birthday is wonderful. I think it's funny that you make your own birthday cake, too. When my mother-in-law found out that I make my own, she was shocked beyond all belief. "You shouldn't have to make your OWN birthday cake!" But how else would I have what I want?

This holiday season, give the people you care about the one thing they really want -- cold, hard cash. It's a good time to be liquid.

Joni: Happy birthday. Your kids are cool. Your pastries are fulfilling and kinda hot. Your emails are pithy. I'm not sorry you're my sister. Not one bit.
