Happy Birthday

I take any reason i can to celebrate-- even if it's my own birthday.

I have never been a woman to dread another birthday. I fully embrace a day that is mine alone! I actually celebrated yesterday---
The girls at work took me to Buffington's downtown and I had a HUGE delicious chili cheese burger with cheese fries. Oh Yeah baby!--- It's been 9 long weeks of dieting and yesterday was the day of celebrating all things cheesey---

Wayne and the girls grilled out for me last night and it was wonderful. The best part-- they got me a day at the spa! I'm so excited!

In celebration of turning 39 here are the 10 things to be thankful for as I hit-

1.I have a whole year left before I'm 40.

2.I can run 8 miles-- more than alot of 39 year old women can do!

3.I'm more financially secure than I was 29-- I live in a smaller house and drive an older car :)

4.My children sleep all night.

5 I no longer have to get a babysitter for a date night.

6.I realize what a gift I have in my husband. We laugh and talk alot more and fight alot less than we did at 29.

7.I have learned to say no to things I don't really want to do to make more time for my family.

8. I am still young enough top 20 songs with my girls, but enjoy the "classics" like REO Speedwagon, John Bon Jovi and Phil Collins.

9.I realize I'll never be skinny-- and I'm OK with that.

10. God is patient and loving and invites me to join Him in His plans.
