It's my birthday and I can cry if I want to, but I won't! I don't know why but I absolutely love my birthday I always have the best day and feel so loved and lucky to be alive another year, I don't fear getting older and it's probably the one day a year I become one of those annoyingly peppy people that I usually can't stand to be around! First thing this morning my parents called and sang happy birthday which is always a great start then the first e-mail I opened was from a friend telling me I was the one who inspired her to start running! That is just the beginning, I can't even start to mention all the wonderful wishes I've gotten on FB and my hubs texting me and I have a friend taking me out to dinner and salsa dancing tonight. Can I be any luckier?!?!!! I'm all about spoiling myself on my birthday too so after work today will be my day off from the gym (I switched it out with tomorrow) and I am going to buy myself some new running shoes to start the training season off right next month and maybe a new exercise outfit even though I don't need one (I can't go into Sports Authority and not buy more than 1 thing that's why I'm normally not allowed in there) and go use the Express gift card I had earned.
Famous people born on this day the only one that caught my attention was Eddie Sutherland because it's really close to my maiden name Sutherlin so I wonder if there was any relation... He was an actor in the Chaplin era.
The skiing teddy bear my husband gave me for my birthday 2 years ago shortly after we had just started dating, named Sam Adams :-)
