Celebrating the 18th Anniversary of my 21st Birthday

Last week I celebrated my ~gulps~ 39th birthday but more accurately it is the 18th anniversary of my 21st birthday. **smiles** Yes ahhh much better! Normally I am not a big birthday person. I do not tell people when it is my birthday because it embarrasses me if people are wishing me happy birthday. (Yes I know SILLY, I was dropped on my head as a baby) I have decided to blog about this birthday for several reasons.

My first reason is the birthday lion sitting on my desk in the picture below. One of my fantastic blogging buddies sent me that lion for my birthday. He figured out when my birthday was by doing some math with the birthday calculator I posted on July 3rd. Honestly I did not think that far in advance to think someone would be able to figure out my birthday, but moreso I never thought anyone would even care about me that much to figure out my birthday by the calculator. Is that the most thoughtful thing you have ever experienced. I could not believe that someone thought I was special enough to figure out my birthday, it totally floored me. I was so humbled by this act of kindness. I received a wonderful card and that beautiful lion the day before my actual birthday. The lion is so soft and cuddly. Everytime I look at Leo (my birthday lion) sitting on my desk it makes me smile so big. I truly feel cherished!!!! So I wanted to say thank you very much for the birthday lion and for making me feel special. Here is a picture of my office, my desk and my awesome lion!!!!

My second reason is the hysterical cake my sister in law made for me. Here is a picture of it:

Is this the funniest thing ever??? It looks like a litter box with little turds in it. I laughed so hard when they brought this out with candles in it. It really looks like a litter box too. The turds are tootsie rolls that you put in the microwave for 30 seconds then twist the ends. The litter is crushed cookies. I have never seen anything like this so I wanted to share it with my wonderful friends!

My husband bought me a Nintendo DS. I am so excited about this game system thingy. Now I will have something to do during football practice. hehe... It is pretty cool!!! Well if the kids will let me touch it. GRINZZ~
I have the following games:

I am ready to go now lets get playing!!!

I am hoping tomorrow will be the day I can visit some blogs. I am so out of touch with my wonderful and awesome friends. Please know I am thinking of all of you and missing you immensely!
