Counting My Blessings

So far, turning 34 hasn't turned out to be all that bad.

I've been hit on in a bar (do go out and get a "Bikinitini" -or three- for yourself and see what happens).

My husband bought us a new dryer that works (even when I don't talk dirty to it in order for it to dry our clothes).

I've been carded while buying wine.

I had a fortune in my cookie worth keeping.

We've only been rained out at baseball once.

My car has new tires so now I dont' have to fear for our lives each time I drive somewhere.

I have TWO massages lined up for whenever I need them (oh, I love birthdays)!

I got a fabulous new camera and have taken more than 300 pictures (I'll share some as soon as I figure out how to download them).

I discovered the joys of dried mangoes (which really is a blessing as it will help ween me from my beloved Red Vines).

I've been spoiled by my family and friends, and am so grateful for each and every one of them.

I've seen many good things happen and . . .




now, this!

See what interesting things you can learn if you check your sitemeter once in a while?

Now, which 4 of you actually voted for me? I am dying to know.

I just saw your comment about Katie and her mani/pedi and I tell you, our girls are leading parallel lives! :-)

Now, as for the award, well if getting carded and drinking bikinitinis doesn't already tell you...you are HOTTTT!

I was carded at the supermarket Sat. I couldn;t believe it! I felt great!

What's a "bikinitini" dare I ask?


(I have been carded in the grocery store once, maybe, in the last 3 years-sis, and I'm 4 years your junior. I'm not sure if this makes me happy or sad)

What is a bikinitini? Sounds like something I would like......'cause it ends in "tini" :)
