Wow...is it my birthday...again?...already???
My birthday is today, February 23rd, and on the 23rd of each month, I share a little something random about myself. So here 'goes!
35) I have been using the same key chain – the logo for The University of Alabama – since I was a senior in high school.
I was invited to a meeting of the local alumni association, where I won it as a door prize, and I have used it ever since. Last year, I thought I lost my keys (which were later found on my aunt’s mantle…in Alabama…after we were home from our holiday visit). I was upset over the expected expense of having to replace my car key…but more so over losing my key chain. I’m happy to report it is safely back in my possession…and hopefully will be for at least another 18 years.
36) One of my favorite birthday confections of my youth was a giant chocolate chip cookie (made in a pizza pan).
I bought a pizza pan specifically for the occasion a couple of years ago, and made one for myself. It was SO good. But…I have hesitated to make it again, as Hubby doesn’t care much for it, I don’t want to give the girls too much of it…and I surely don’t need 7/8 of a chocolate chip cookie pizza!
Happy birthday to me! And I may not be making myself a giant chocolate chip cookie, but I think I'm going to treat the girls and me to some donuts this morning. My last group of work buddies usually got donuts from a locally-owned donut shop when someone had a birthday. (I'm a Krispy Kreme girl at heart, but - alas - we don't have one of those in town.) I haven't had donuts from there in over THREE YEARS! I think some blueberry cake donuts will hit the spot...and I think the girls might kinda like them, too. :)
And over the next couple of days, I'm really looking forward to getting together with a few friends, and a nice dinner out with Hubby and the girls. Wish us luck at their first "tablecloth" restaurant!!!
