yesterday was my birthday. hurray. my grandma thought I was turning 25. big hurray! if only that was the case. she’s a couple years behind, which is fine by me. ah yes, and happy Memorial Day. my husband brought to my attention that I will always have monday birthdays off from work. anytime it’s on a monday, it’s Memorial Day. even bigger hurray! i can’t believe i never figured that out on my own. haha. but i think it’s well deserved. all those childhood years where I got snubbed because people always had plans for the big weekend when i was trying to have a birthday party. life was so unfair back then. haha (that was for you dad) but now, it’s wonderful and who doesn’t enjoy a long holiday weekend, and a birthday all at the same time? so in celebration of my b-day my dad cooked hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill, mom made a million side dishes as always and she baked one of my favorites, angel food cake topped with strawberries and cool whip for my cake. this is why spring birthdays are the best. good food and family and the beautiful outdoors. birthdays just don’t get any better than that, unless your birthday happens to fall on a holiday! and of course Happy Memorial Day for those who have served, continue to serve and have sacrificed themselves so that we may have the privilege to live a wonderful life here in the States.
