turning 31...

today was my birthday... 31... went to church & spent the rest of the day at home. i'm sitting here sipping some coffee that my mom brought me for my b-day... the girls let me take a few pics of them, and torrey took this one of me today.

my dh left a nice happy birthday message for me on his blog... so that was a nice little "gift" this morning. missing him a lot today... i've missed his last few calls on the webcam, and that always makes me a little sad. but a day spent with my girls is always a good day! :)

journaling:
i woke up this morning to the sound of little girl laughter & singing. happy birthday to you you live in a zoo... and the best compliment of the day, from torrey... “mom, you look pretty good for your age you look young even though you’re not.”

supplies:
patterned paper: skin deep by erica hite, scrapgirls.com; journaling prompt brushes: katie pertiet, designerdigitals.com; "31" brush: hollow'd out alpha by kate teague, twopeasinabucket.com; notebook paper: deena rutter, pclayers.com; font: garamond (journaling), harrington (bracket)

I know this is a bit late but Happy Birthday! Welcome to the official Thirty-somethings! I joined that club this year also. Remember when thirty-something was just a night time drama? Not that it matters since you look B-E-A-Utiful!

Happy Birthday, my scrappy friend! I'll be joining the thirty-something ranks in March. Geez...time has really flown for me. Your LO is lovely as always :)

I'm sorry to hear you're missing your hubby. Deployments are so hard :( Anytime you need some retail therapy, you just give me a jingle! We'll have to go to *your* LSS. Leslie tells me it's awesome!

Later-gator!!

FYI...I can't comment on your other BLOG...so I'll just come here and post for both, eh?

blah, blah, blah...so you're 31...next year you'll be 32...see a pattern?

As for the pics on the other site....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pics of the girls in their jammies, and writing to Santa...how wonderful to believe. (And I loved the "sister pose" story....too cute!)

I also wanted to ask where the wonderful, hand painted, Leslie Hall original ornaments were? Not even in the background shot? Sheesh!

See ya around the boards, girlie!
