Blow out a Candle~


This Sunday....I turn 37! 37!!!!!!! I remember when my mom turned 37...man, she was old!

This is the first birthday that I have received "old" cards ...you know the ones that say things like~

"Your idea of happy hour is a NAP"

or

"When you wake up in the morning...you do look like your driver's license picture"

or

"Your idea of a night out is sitting on the patio"

or

"People think you have become more patient but in reality you just don't care anymore"


So instead of getting all "sappy" and "philosophical" ...I am going to enjoy turning 37...probaly blow out a candle or two..open homemade cards from my children { I know they have been up to something b/c they were cutting and pasting behind closed doors}...maybe relax and read a good book but I am going to try to "welcome" this new number and not "fight" it and wish myself a little ole' happy birthday...

Betsy said...

Is it just me or is 37 not old at all? You are still in your thirties....you are still "finding yourself" (according to Oprah). Your not even middle age. Don't let yourself feel old. That is very young.

I hope you have a fantastic birthday!

Hey, I think a nap is a great way to have a happy hour! ;)

Happy Birthday - I don't even think 37 is even old.

OK...37 is NOT old! When you're motoring about in a retirement home, then you might be OLD! LOL! So, savor your youth for as long as you can and have a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope it's the best ever!

Happy early Birthday!! I think you should definitely welcome it and embrace it...what else is there to do? It's funny that you say you remember your mom turning 37, b/c that's the same thought that crossed my mind when I turned 31...I specifically remembered my mom's 31st birthday. So weird.

Well, I'll leave you with a few cliches...

Age is JUST a number.
We're only as old as we feel.
30's are the new 20's!

Hope you have a fabulous birthday!

Liz said...

Hey Sandy Toes!!!!
Did you have any new wrinkles when you looked in the mirror this morning? When I come to visit Tuesday, we will count are wrinkles...the most wrinkles win, ha ha ha!!!

Hope your having a GREAT B-day!

Your bestest friend who is only 34!!!! Lindy

Angela said...

Happy birthday!!! I think I stopped counting at 29. LOL! How did we get so old so fast?? Happy Happy Birthday to you. Wish I could see you!

southern queen bee said...

Happy late birthday. I think the older you get the faster they go by. When I made 30 that was harder for me than 40. At 40 I was too busy to realize it was my birthday.
Hope your day was special...

Happy birthday!
