Happy Birthday!

to me. Is that weird to tell you that? Am I craving attention? Perhaps. 35 years ago today, my parents were blessed with the cutest little girl they'd ever seen. Yes...I'm talking about me!

So...as part of my birthday celebration, I thought I'd tell you 35 things about myself. Ohhhh...don't you worry. Them's just jokes. I will, however, make this a random revelations post! Here are my absolute top passions in my life (or not in my life). Don't get all sensitive on me--I'm oviously not including my family and friends here.


1. Been there, done that. And I would do it a million more times if I could. Edit: Florence, Italy


2. Yes. I would marry her in a heartbeat. She's spectacular.

3. It's a problem. I'm trying to control it. 43 pairs of argyles and counting.... 4. Every meal. Every day. For the rest of my life.


5. It's a no-brainer. Who DOESN'T love it?

So there you go. You're either freaked out by me now, or you now know we are destined to be best friends!

Kris said...

Now what would Gayle do for Oprah for her birthday? Yes, that's right, she would let Oprah buy her lunch. :)

Happy Birthday Chris! Funny how I always end up being great friends with Libra's! The stars are lined up in your favor..stop by a Taco Bell after work, put on your argyle socks, make sure the dog is locked up, dig into some cake and then The Office! Life is good!

I hope you have a wonderful day...I'll be thinking of you!

Saucy said...

Happy Birthday! I was hoping your list would actually be 35 items long because it was pretty entertaining and also proves how much we have in common (The Office, Taco Bell, argyle socks!)... always wanted to see Florence, it's my dad's favourite city. I sent my son when he turned 16 but I haven't gone yet!

Why don't you post just a few more?

Jill said...

YOU are great! You have become one of my favorite daily blog stops! This post made me feel normal and it's nice to know there are other odd people out there like me! Yay you! Oh, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! :)
