Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

So, here I am another year older. My birthday was Saturday. 34. The last couple years, I have posted a self taken birthday photo for posterity. This year my husband took the pic and I am making my signature (rather tired looking) face where I am thinking "Man I hate having my picture taken."


I am sporting a new-that-morning 14 dollar Supercuts haircut here. (I did it Ms. G!) And I must say I am thrilled I didn't spend any more. Not that it looks Vogue-ready or anything, but that is how it just dried with just a little dab of styling goop. Seriously, that's huge for me. My hair is naturally super thick, wavy and dry and frizzy on the ends. Usually it dries looking more like Phil Spector than anything I could venture in public with.

I bought my own cake at BJs that morning. I am not a big cake person, but Boston creme sounded pretty good. It was only just okay. I should have bought a pie or just made brownies. Or had a birthday bag of potato chips (Cape Cods please). Cake is almost always disappointing calories for me.

The kids treated me to lots of special drawings and coloring pages that day. And I got to go grocery shopping all by myself. My present is a trip to see Mary Poppins with my mom and sisters and nieces next month. Yay for 34!

Happy Birthday, your hair looks fab! I so know how you feel with thick, mind of its own hair - mine is thick and curly and is, well, bonkers!

Happy Birthday! your hair looks great. I don't like traditional birthday cakes either but it is nice to celebrate with cake and my daughter always enjoys it even if I don't :-) Glad you have a fun birthday trip to look forward to. I find it funny that someone who so loves taking pictures of people should hate having her own photo taken so much, it is so very clear in your face in the photo too!

Happy Birthday! First off, I didn't know you had red hair. Second, your hair sounds exactly like mine. I have to blow it straight and smooth(ish) every morning or I look like a nut. What did they do different? I might need that info.
I'm not big into cake either. I always request an ice cream cake.
