Saturday-ay? was a wonderful day. Truthfully. Aside from the minor attacks from the neighborhood dogs, cake attacks from the siblings, or the blind dodgeball game my little brother and our cousins decided to play……OR flat out being called an OGRE in the middle of the mall today! That was probably the highlight.
So, this will definitely make you pee your pants with laughter…adult-dipers in place….check! Ok you ready for the story?
I met my friends Katherine (Special K) and Catherine…..which is confusing on its own accord! (the really bad thing is that I am by birth right a Catherine too! ThankgoodnessIgobyyyyysomethingelse!) at the mall today. I was finding them a million and one things to try on–they all looked fabulous! So needless to say I was enjoying playing Barbie’s and getting them new clothes. Well as you can imagine yelling “K/Catherine, how’s it going?” over in the changing room direction would be not so smart. I did that about a billion times!! I really don’t know what my deal was!
So then we walk into this accessory store and I am looking at rings. Then this little almost 4-year-old girl walks up and we start to converse. Mind you, I was half asleep when I got dressed this morning…but I was wearing a neon green shirt and a grey zip up. I also was holding my bright green puffy jacket. Our conversation literally moves from “wow, that ring is beautiful!”, “oh I do like that one, but this gold swirly one is pretty neat too…WHOA YOU LOOK LIKE AN OGRE! I quickly proclaim….”AN OGRE????? What constitutes ME looking like and OGRE?” She then states, I am wearing all green. I gave her the “I am offended” look and she goes, “NOOOOOooooooo! You look like princess Fiona!” OH Great…at least now I am Princess status! As I was walking out she blew me a big kiss and it made things all better!
Well I must say I had such a wonderful birthday weekend. I went shopping with my girls. What could be better?? All of Sunday was really low-key.
Went to church and family breakfast. I then had my cousins help me clean up my house from the party we had the night before….next SUNDAY NAP! Oh that was totally my favorite! Next, my mom asked me what I wanted to do for dinner because it was my day. That was really sweet of her to ask. 🙂 I love my mom. Well I briefly told her lets just make all the left overs up and let’s have a feast! No fuss just company and good food.
I was trying to get a group of girls together to get some wine…nothing worked out and everyone was so busy. I must say I really didn’t get all that disappointed! Well I invited my friend Laugh-a-lot out and the two of us ended up at the most random of spots! We laughed, chatted about all of the idiot boys in our lives who will never realize how wonderful we really are….and ease dropped on the table behind us talking about onsies….”They have a onsie for that!” It was such a random and beautiful day!
It was an amazing transition to a Quarter of a Century! YAY!
I realized that I am above all blessed with such great people in my life. I love my girl friends for all that they are and what they give me as far as perspective and hope goes. Truly, to all the men who think I’m going to give you the time of day when you treated me like I was no greater than a speck of dust: Skip You!
LOVE YOU GIRLS!

Happy Bithday, Catherine. Glad you had such a nice day. Girlfriends, moms, are the best! Love the picture. Hope you got to do a little skipping on your birthday. Skipping is a great way to improve one’s mood. I’m a January birthday too.
Happy Happy to you…..
When is your day of birth my beautiful friend?? OH and I must agree with you that skipping makes life so much better! 🙂 Thanks for your encouragement and support! Btwn you, Techy, and ET, I am so blessed with my little blog family! xoxo
I want to skip now. My birthday is not in January, I feel left out.
Next time with the girlfriends, play this one…remember that guy you went out with who was so (geeky/weird/annoying) etc. You get points if you can remember the story of the boy and the one who dated him can’t remember his name. Works best when there was only one date with memorable comments he made.
Techy-When is your b-day…I will make you an “Honorary January B-day!” I will not leave you out 😉
You better believe I will play that game! Let you know how many points I get! You’re the best Techy!
