Happy (Belated) Birthday to me!

It's official.  I'm 30!  I've never been one of those girls who wallow in self pity over something as silly as a number.  Actually,  I am enjoying being 30-  for the brief 4 days that have eclipsed since bidding adieu to 29, anyway.  So, I thought today's post should be a list of things I am enjoying right now.  It's going to be a great year, and I need to start it off right by appreciating all of the amazing things that I've been blessed with!

1.  I'm really enjoying my husband and these little fur mongers:

They make my life so much better, just by being a part of it.

2.  Loving being told that I'm "normal"!  All of my lab results are in, and everything is great- no chromosome issues or communicable diseases.  There's the small matter of a new hypothyroidism diagnosis, but I'm staying positive here, right?  I'm ridiculously thankful to finally have all of my results in!

3.  The Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin:  Thanks to a fabulous co-worker for getting me addicted.  I now have a series of long books to read on my Kindle while endlessly sitting in waiting rooms.

4.  These fabulous quilt squares-  I've got 10 more to whip out, and the real fun of laying out and pattern-playing begins!

5.  I'm super excited about spending the weekend in Dallas with Paul and celebrating our birthdays together.  A little Kings of Leon concert, a great dinner, an FC Dallas Soccer game and a lot of lounging relaxing and doing absolutely nothing.

See?  I told you there was a lot for me to be thankful and excited about!


  1. Happy Birthday Mary Margaret!
    Hop you have a great time sharing your celebrations with your loved ones!
    Love your patchwork - so pretty.
    How envious I am - to only be 30!!!! I hit 51 this year - now that isnt so good!!!

  2. Happy Birthday to one of the most amazing people I know :)

  3. There's absolutely nothing wrong with 51, Gill. It sure beats the alternative! Thanks for the birthday wishes, too!
