Happy Birthday to me on BLACK FRIDAY!

Hey All!

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday Dear Leah, Happy Birthday to me (last part in four part harmony!).   Yes, I know I am singing to myself while typing but who could wish me a better Happy Birthday than the very person who has lived these thirty someish years? ME!  So here I am at 4:00 a.m. singing to myself (yes I need therapy, are you offering?)

My birthday is in all actuality on November the 26th (BLACK FRIDAY) and I am going to be shopping till I'm dropping, so I am celebrating a little early.  I love having my birthday on and around THANKSGIVING.  This season of thankfulness is a treasure to me...I know Christmas and the shopping has been crowding in (but do you blame the retailers in this sluggish economy?) on our pure, undefiled Thanksgiving, but just because that happens doesn't mean that I am any less thankful or blessed.  I am what I choose to be (choose you this day whom you will serve:  as for me and my house we will serve the Lord) and thank you Lord for my birthday and how it falls around Thanksgiving each year.  It is a great opportunity that I have to be around my whole family, and yes it is just one day so we can all get along great.  I get to kill two birds with one stone! 

Rare footage of my blogging skills in action!

I even bought myself some presents.  I had a buy 2 get 2 free deal at Yankee Candles, so here is what I chose:

Festival of Light..matched my kitchen (Cinnamon smell)

Pomegranate Apple Cider and Hot Buttered Rum (they are both great)

Vanilla Cookie...I want the house to smell like I am cooking
I know I didn't buy any Christmas flavors, but I can't get into the pine and tree smells...I am sorry, they just make me gag just sniffing them a few seconds.  I was going to get the Christmas Cupcake, but the Vanilla Cookie smelled stronger, so I went for the Cookies!  These are the first Yankee Candles I have ever bought, they make my house smell like Martha Stewart and Paul Deen's house all rolled up together in a sweet little glass jar, ya'll.  Sorry, I was in my Paula Deen groove.

So Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday!!! For some reason, I can't see your blog on my home computer, only your collage at the top...weird. Anyway, hope you had a great birthday. By the way, I love the blogging outfit you had on, where did you get it, it's cute?? Anyway, we are now another year older, I still can't believe it... Love the candles, I bet they smell wonderful.
