Birthday Girl

Today I am officially a quarter-century old. Yes, I'm still a "baby" as my office mates like to politely remind me. But, I do feel like I'm a good 5-10 years older than I really am.

My DH has a present for me that he will give me tonight. He says he thinks he spent too much money on it and I have racked my brain but can't think of what it could be. Guess I'll have to be patient. We are going out to eat here, which has fantastic service and a great view of the lake. It should be a great time. And he was fabulous enough to order me a cake from here, so I am in for a real treat. My thighs won't thank me later but my taste buds will. A girl has to indulge herself once in a while, right?

I know it is my birthday and I can cry if I want to, but I have every reason to smile right now. I'm trying to push the fear out of my mind and enjoy the day. Stress-free. After all, it goes without saying that I already have the best present I could ever dream of.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! It turns out that we are only a day apart (mine's tomorrow). What a great evening you have planned with the husband, and you can celebrate not only your special day, but also the wonderful thing that you have created together. :)

Happy Birthday! We share one but I have 4 on you. Hope 25 is the best yet! Looks like it's starting out like it. Congrats on the BFP, too. great news right before the big 2-5. Hope the extra kick of progesterone helps to ease your mind. I have to take it to.

Happy Birthday to a fellow Sagittarius!

I am struggling with the fear and worry thing too...

Let's just make a pact right now - you and me - WE ARE SO DONE WITH WORRYING!

Let's just enjoy every day of this miracle.

Melissa said...

Happy Birthday! Clyde's is a great restaurant ~ I love their seafood especially.

If I had to guess what your birthday present is... I'd probably say jewelry! I can't wait to hear your update tomorrow.

Anyway, Happy 25th! This is going to be a *great* year for you!
