One Year Older - and it's Okay!

Hey... bear with me and read to the end... if you really want a great deal on scrap supplies it will be worth it lol.
Hey all I thought I'd do a quick post about.... ME lol. It was my 38th birthday this last Friday, the 12th and so this is gonna be about yours truely. The journaling on this layout reads:

I must admit that I was less than thrilled with the idea of turning another year older this year. I am now closer to 40 than 30 and starting to feel old. But I must admit that my birthday ended up being pretty sweet. I had a luncheon with girlfriends on Friday and received many nice gifts. One thoughtful friend even remembered my favorite treat, mini eggs. That night I went with Clayne to see the Emma Smith movie which was very good. Saturday, April 12, I spent the day being lazy, surfing the net& went to lunch with my sister, Chelsea. Clayne got us pizza for dinner so I didn’t have to cook & even remembered that I wanted a banana cream pie from Babe’s Bakery. I finally decided to spend my birthday money on some photo actions for my new digi-scrap hobby. 38 isn’t bad!

And rather than coming up with 38 random facts about me I decided to use the number 12 for the 12th of April.

1. I hated chocolate until I went to college... should have stayed that way lol.

2. I was sent to the principal's office in kindergarten for kicking the kids under the table.

3. I was on the drill team in High School and our lovely school colors were orange and black.

4. I got married when I was 19 and so have been married for almost 2 decades - my that sounds old lol.

5. I hate onions and peppers.

6. I am double jointed.

7. I love to sing karaoke style.

8. I don't go much for bling - wear a $12 Avon ring instead of my wedding ring.

9. I wear contacts - but wish I could have eye surgery and not wear them anymore.

10. The thick frosting is the best part of a cake.

11. I have almost filled 320 gigs of hard drive space with digi scrap downloads and my layouts since November!

12. My favorite season is Spring... so let's have it already!!

I had thought about this post for a few days and now when I went to type out my facts I couldn't remember most of them but oh well... there are twelve just the same. Hope you learned something new about me.
About that movie I saw with Clayne for my birthday. You can click here to go and see a trailer for it. I had been wanting to see it ever since I saw the trailer.
What is a birthday with out a gift? I decided that this year a few gifts were in order for myself. Those who know me will attest to the fact that I have a huge stock pile of paper scrapbook supplies. This fact weighs me down big time in the clutter department and so I am giving myself the gift of letting go. I will be spending the next month organizing these supplies so that I will be ready to host a HUGE open house on the 17th of May where thrifty paper crafters will be able to save big time. Put it on your calendars now and tell everyone you know who would be interested. Now I am putting this on my blog so that I will be committed to carry through because this will be a lot of work for me and I know that I really won't enjoy getting it all together but I do know that once the 17th of May has come and gone I will be so HAPPY.
Another gift I am going to give myself is to get my handwriting made into a font. And I am gonna have Allie Hoopes do it. She has got lots of great fonts that I love including my friend, Wendy Sue. (If you haven't been there go pick up some cute free fonts.) I have been wanting to get my own font for a while and now that I have posted it - yep... I feel committed. I am gonna do it this week. The cost is very minimal and I think it will be fun to include my own writing on some of my digi layouts.
Well thanks for hanging in there on this post and let me ramble on about myself. It was kind of fun - but I won't make it a habit.

I love all the fun facts. It's always fun to get to know people better.

Ya, birthdays should be for children only.......... the only thing that makes them worth it (past 30) is the few gifts & indulgences we can justify! Sounds like you had a good one though!
