A Busy Day!

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown

Today is a little jam-packed. First off, and most importantly, it's my DD's ELEVENTH birthday. Sadly we will not be celebrating much today because we also have my niece's wedding right smack in the middle of the day.

Still, DD will get whatever she wants for breakfast, she has a cake, and she'll have gifts to open this morning. I love to buy her little things and wrap them all individually, because small presents drive her crazy. :::cue evil laughter:::

Monday we're planning on having a real celebration, with lunch out and a movie in (we'll get the DVD of her choice and have popcorn and soda) and we'll go pick up her "big" gift -- a pogo stick.

Sometimes DD wishes she was allowed all the "stuff" her friends have: iPods, cell phones, gaming systems, etc., but I really love that she's still being allowed to be a kid -- playing simple games that require her imagination -- like I had to because, yanno our version of the Wii was Pong.

For those of you too young to remember Pong, here's a video showing you how it worked:

And, yes, I had a friend who had it for her TV and we played for HOURS at a time, lol.

In any case, I need to stop now and go bake applesauce coffee cake for breakfast.

Have a great day!


You Are a Tank Top

You are a lively, energetic person. You are often on the move, and it's important for you to dress comfortably.

It's likely that you are quite healthy and fit. How else would you look good in a tank top?

You are fashionable and stylish. When you wear a tank top, you make sure that it's chic and not trashy.

You are bold and courageous. You don't mind showing a little skin every now and then!

HAHAHAHAHA.... uh, no.

Happy Birthday to DD! I hope she enjoys her day and I bet she'll have a wonderful time on Monday.

You Are a Long Sleeved Shirt

You are a modest person. You don't think too highly of yourself, and you're definitely not a show off.

You tend to be discreet in all aspects of your life. You value privacy.

You are a solid person. You are very dependable, and you enjoy having others depend on you.

You are thoughtful and actually very deep. You reject superficiality of every sort.

This is accurate.
