Today, I'm 32!

Yay! Its my Birthday today, and I have decided that it doesn't bother me being 32. Now according to some of my co-workers, 35 is one that they all seemed to dread!

So far today the staff here at work have managed to make me feel special today! Its almost lunchtime, and I've received gorgeous roses (will share a pic tonight), quite a number of cards, many birthday wishes and hugs, the latest issue of The World of Cross Stitch, and a yummy slice of coffee cake! The leftovers were sacrificed to the staff room... that way I only have one slice!



Todd told me last night to be ready for 6:30, that he has a reservation for dinner. He wouldn't tell me where...

So today its a very low points breakfast and lunch for me! Hopefully I can stay on point today!

In honor of my 1001st post and my 32nd b-day I'm going to have a draw for a stitched "something" made by me! So leave me a comment and I'll enter your name in my draw!

EDITED TO ADD :

Well I have to say this has definately been one of my better birthdays! When I picked up the mail I had two birthday parcels and a card!




Vicki Made me this beautiful little pillow.



Kathy Made me this gorgeous un-stuffed pillow (cheaper to send it that way) and a few extra goodies.


Todd was a good boy and did take me out for dinner! We went to a little place in a stone house called Cabatto's. Yummy and I sooo killed my points! LOL Actually the dinner came out okay, it was the chocolate mousse that did me in!

Oh Dani I am rolling on the floor with laughter here. Wait until you are looking at the big six oh and then you will start to worry.
Just remember Age is a frame of mind and you dont get to old to play - you get old because you dont play.

Have a wonderful birthday and I would be honoured if I were chosen for a stitched gift.

Happy Birthday!!! I am curious as to where you are going for dinner. Make sure you save lots of points - don't forget you have 35 additional points to use. I have rejoined WW and managed a loss of 1 1/2 lbs. this week. Judie from Brighton

Well, my goodness. Happy birthday stitcher girl. 32, a mere babe. the big 55 was hard for me, that made being 60 a breeze. You have a lot of stitching ahead of you. I'd love to have one of your stitched pieces.

GailR said...

Happy Birthday Dani. I think my worst birthday was my 7th - I had chickenpox - so no party and no halloween (4 days later).

Enjoy your day and your dinner.

Hi Dani I've been reading your blog for sometime and bit the bullet and finally thought to post! I am also a tkd stitching fool! I'm one belt away from my black and hope to reach at least my 2nd degree! Love it love it...don't worry about 32, it's when you reach 39 like myself you'll be kicking and screaming! LOL Can you hear me from Michigan??? email me sometime! Happy Birthday!

Margie May said...

Hi Dani-Glad you have had a great birthday. Oh to be your age - especially when half a century is behind me and guess what? - I still have to remember to count points and watch what I eat. Chocolate mouse on your birthday really isn't a crime

Catch you soon - Marg Downunder

Hi Dani,

Happy Birthday!!! Hope that it's a wonderful one, and you get spoiled rotten!!!

Ah....I remember turning 32...it was two weeks after my wedding and we were in England on our honeymoon. That will be 18 years ago in May. Sigh! Where does the time go?? If it's any consolation Dani, you're just a young thing compared to me.

You got some lovely gifts from Vicki and Kathy. That blue peacock pillow from Kathy is Gorgeous!!! Makes having a birthday worth while after all, doesn't it?

And congratulations on sticking to Weight Watchers and loosing 6 lbs...so far. Good for you.

And a 1000 post blog anniversary on top of everything else!! Wow. I can't conceive of such a thing.
This has certainly been a great week for you.

Your models look lovely and I can't wait to see them in the magazine too.

Once again, very best wishes Dani!!

Cheers!

Judy - posting from work .... on break of course

Karin said...

Happy belated Birthday to you!! 32 is a fantastic age....10 years more and it is me LOL 42 now and I can tell you enjoy your thirties!! They are the best! You are still young but have more wisdom than in your twenties, you are not that worried anymore about what others think of you! Fantastic time!

Enjoy! :-)

Happy belated!!! It sounds like a fabulous day (well, except for the work thing, LOL!) Those peacocks are to die for!!!

Lillie said...

OMG! how did I missed this!
Happy belated birthday Dani, many happy happy returns of the day.

Jo said...

Happy Belated Birthday Dani. I can't believe you counted points on your b'day - that's very dedicated. Me, I'd just have a blow out (which explains why I am an unsuccessful dieter!!)

I turned 32 last December, and had a great time (and got lots ot stitchy gifts too). I've got to the stage where I have to work out how old I am when someone asks rather than it always being at the front of my mind... I guess that means I don't care anymore???

Your gifts are lovely, especially the two pillows (I'd love to know which design the Peacock pillow is - it's just my style).

Have fun being 32 - I know I am :)

Christine said...

I realize I am a tad late, but happy birthday! Glad to hear you had a great day!
