7. Fallen in love.
8. Participated in 9 ballet recitals, 2 Nutcracker ballets, 12 high school drill team competitions, 2 college drill team competitions, and 4 solo competitions.
9. Laughed so hard that my dairy queen milkshake squirted out my nose.
10. Been a pizza maker, a waitress, a telemarketer, an at home data entry employee, a customer service rep, a money market operator, a student, an accountant, and a wife.

Happy Birthday.
In 1981 I started my first real job in a bank as a drive in teller where I would soon meet my husband.

I am old. Old, old, old.

Happy Happy Birthday!!!

I had my 4th and last baby when I was 28, but that's me not you.

I would like to know where you got the soup? I know we live in the same city. Or was it homemade? Then of course I would need the recipe.

I hope you have quit eating dog food. I bet you haven't.

koopermom said...

Happy Birthday!!! Welcome to the world of 28 year olds.

I have also eaten dog food. Due to another obnoxious older brother.

Aunt of 14 said...

Pooba... I am here by way of Whispering Writer. I read one of your comments you left on her post about the air conditioner... that gave me pause. Well, I burst out laughing first, but then it sunk in. WAIT A MINUTE. You said husband and YOUR balls in one sentence. *raises an eyebrow in curosity*...

Marissa said...

I never thought of having cupcakes for my birthday instead of cake, but that's a good idea! I LOVE cupcakes. Unfortunately I'm in the club with you...I recently had the misfortune of a bird pooping on my head for the 1st time. I'm just glad it didn't end up near my mouth.

And no, I won't be at the reunion. Duty calls for my hubby and we have to move. BLAH :o(

Karin Katherine said...

Glad all your wishes and desires came true Princess.

Happy Birthday!

You've done a lot in your 28 years of life, Poob. I can't wait to see what the next few years will bring.

PS: How freaky weird is it that I was in Ballet for years and years when I was a kid too? We are connected on so many different levels that it is almost spiritual.
