Another Day, Another Year Older…and a PKG Update

Another Day, Another Year Older…and a PKG Update

It’s my birthday today, which means shit…I’m even older than I was yesterday.
In any event, I’m determined to ignore the fact that I woke up the morning after I was 20 and am now closer to 40- double poop.
Well who cares…I have three beautiful kids, a husband who I actually kind of really like, this blog that gives me boatloads of happiness and a life I pretty much adore so hooray for 37…it’s the new 27…sort of…whatever…I’m going to rock it…
and when I do, I’ll sooo be wearing a pink balloon skirt while sitting on some kind of fabulous gold chair/stool contraption.
Just sayin.
And if you’re wondering what I’ll be doing to celebrate let me just say that it involves breakfast in bed, prezzies, lots of famjam time and dinner with hubster later…with a little Tulip modelling appointment that’s over an hour away and plumber visit to fix a new stinky water issue, thrown in there just so we can keep it real.
I wouldn’t want you thinking I was lying down, being fed grapes and eating bon bons all day.
After all, the places to relax and eat are limited these days.

Exhibit A:
During the plumber visit….

Exhibit B:
And how it looks as of today…


It will be fabulous though…I know so.

Have a great 7th of July day loves…best day of the year if you ask me- except for the fact that it’s always a zillion muggy degrees here and I keep getting older but I digress…moving on.
Love you all x a billion!!
Mushy kisses and hugs,

    Happy Birthday, Christine!

    I’ll be celebrating with you- it’s my birthday, too, except that I’m a tad older. But, I’m making it rock today, too!

    Have a good one!

    P.S. Good humor and patience will get you through the kitchen re-do. You seem to have both!

    Happy Birthday! I asked my mom not do long ago what her favorite age was (expecting a number from her early twenties) and she said 37! Here’s to hoping you agree… with that kitchen coming your way I suspect so.

    How did this happen, Christine?? Were we not just 12 years old, playing ouija board and sneaking peaks at your parents dirty books in your crawlspace?? I maintain that I am 27 at heart (dang it all, not in body) and will remain so till my dying days. Have the most wonderful of birthdays, my 12 year old tween friend =)

    Happy BDay!

    My house just stopped looking like that, so I know how you feel. Still, its not close to done and every once in awhile I come home to find out once again that you have to break something before you can make it beautiful.
