Happy Birthday to Me!!

Photo: My 30th Birthday Blowout (2006)

I am shameless in the love of my own birthday, but I see it like it's my own personal holiday. Growing up in a giant family makes you value the one day a year when it's all about you.

Photo: My 3rd Birthday (1979) -- and looking remarkably like my niece, Leah, does right now

Tonight Hubby is taking me to my favorite GF Italian restaurant, where I will be partaking of the free dessert that they offered me in the form of birthday coupon.

Photo: My 5th Birthday (1981) -- when my mother made me the Raggedy Ann doll with matching outfit for me, and I still have it

Happy Birthday! And you do look a lot like Leah in that photo, weird because you aren't her mother but not because you are her aunt (her real aunt not a 'fauntie').

Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Birthday Ali! Love, Love the matching raggedy ann doll. Ok, so when did your mother have time to do that with all of those other children too. Very cool Ali's Mom!

Enjoy Biaggi's! We haven't tried that yet. What do you get for dessert there?

Before I even read the caption, I was like Hi, Eah!!

Leah always has secretly been your kid.

Dave said I was mean for the way I wrapped your present. I didn't make enough effort. But he doesn't understand the need for me to sleep all day and wake up at the last minute and still be late for your party even though I just threw the present in a recycled baby gift bag.

P.S. The Sugar cookies turned out LOVELY :)
