My Birthday April 12, 2010

So, I had a birthday a few weeks ago. Boy am I behind with my blog. I celebrated three times. Once on Easter with my family, once with my good friend from high school, and once with my immediate family. Now don't I feel special? Yes, I am blessed.

Thanking God for another year of life and lessons in His training camp. This year has been interesting and you've seen most of it through my blog. One lesson I've learned...Be as compassionate as you can possibly be. I lose sight of this sometimes.

So here's my birthday in the only pictures I have.

This would be my cup of cocoa at Mitzel's where I met my friend for breakfast.

Here we are with our meal. We meet here every year to celebrate both of our birthdays. We stay about 2 hours every time because we only see each other about twice a year. We met in 10th grade and we've been friends ever since.

The week after my birthday my immediate family took me to lunch at The Olive Garden. I don't eat these peppers, but I did taste it.

Here's my favorite salad. And of course the breadsticks are awesome.

This was my meal. It was steak and noodles and cheese. I can't remember the name of it now, but it was good and brought most of it home. Since I ate so much salad and breadsticks I was almost full by the time my food came. I think they plan it that way. Next time I'm starting with dessert and bringing home the meal.

Here we all are in the lobby. Never mind the bathroom sign (oops!)


  1. Oh fun for you!! Happy happy to you! I celebrated this past week too! Me and my fam went to Red Robin the night of my bday and in a few weeks we will all go out again with my parents to celebrate my bday and my youngest's bday! Hope you enjoyed all of your celebrations!

  2. Well, Happy Late Birthday. It looks like it was very special. Being friends with someone for that long is just awesome. Good for you. I love OG Yum to those peppers in the salad.

  3. Looks yummy! Sure beats McDonald's! It's always nice to go for a birthday because then you don't feel so guilty about spending the money, lol!

  4. It looks like you had a great birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday! Well...I'm a few days late. But it's always nice to be celebrated. Looks like you had a great day. Olive Garden is always yummy!

    Yes, you are blessed.

  8. and ... decided I needed to celebrate too.

    I wanted to thank you for being a part of my first year of blogging! What a wonderful year it has been. I'm throwing a little party and as an honored guest, I would love for you to stop by and share a highlight of your year with all of us.

    Cactus Happy,


    WOW....what a great birthday you had, made especially nice by your family and to be able to spend it with your best girlfriend, just topped it off!


  10. Hello Nannette,

    I love your comment about compassion. That is a wonderful goal…to be compassionate.
