~~Today Is My Birthday~~

Good morning everyone. Let's is my ....... Birthday and it is a big one!!! Some call it the * Red, White and Blue Birthday*......
I'm turning 65 today! Time is just flying by and birthday's are coming faster and faster. I've been very blessed to have always had a wonderful life, a loving family and great friends and for this I'm truly thankful.

Do you see the birthday postcards??? You can click on any of the pictures for a better look see.
I always set these out when we have a birthday celebration.....the rose one is my favorite.......
Look at the date it was's my birthday, no silly, not the year:). I always look at the postcards at streets fairs (just ask Carl)...I've looked at hundreds of post cards...and to find one with my birthday on it is pretty amazing.

Tonight we are going to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner and then home for turtle pie and presents.... I actually started celebrating Saturday night, my dear friends Mr. and Mrs. I'm A Little Teapot took us to a wonderful Mexican restaurant for a delicious birthday dinner.....yummy. We ate like little piggies but still had room for ice cream. Remember I told you this was a big number birthday.......look at this stitchie and scissors from Michelle...too funny, I love it!!!! They also showered me with some beautiful Brighton bling. Wow, just too much.....a happy evening with good friends.

I'm looking forward to tonights celebration and whatever lies ahead. Have a wonderful day....hugs, from"The Birthday Girl"......Linda

p.s Did you notice the post time? I used the pre-posting option...this is the actual time I was born...I thought it would be fun to post on my birth time.....Me:)

Belated happy birthday, Linda! Yes, it is a big one - you can now get the senior fare on airlines. I really like the idea of collecting postcards with your birth date on them. I will have to look for some.

Swampgirl said...

Happy Birthday! It must be true what I've heard about 60 being the new 40, because you look and act like 45! Your fun outlook on life always makes your blog a happy place to visit!
