  1. Happy Birthday to You! Back a few years ago I got upset on my birthday because no one seemed to make it special and then I decided that it was up to me to make MY birthday special. So I think it is very neat that YOU celebrated YOU on this post. I hope you have a great birthday tomorrow and many more to come.

  2. Happy, happy! Happy birthday! (off-key sing-song with lots of clapping to cover up the off-key singing part)

    Thank goodness for tall gals like you to get things from the top shelf for me! My, what a lovely belt buckle, LOL.

    Great post and great list. Have a terrific weekend!

  3. Happy birthday! You are 6 ft tall? Wow! I'm 5'10, my youngest (she is 11)and is already 5'9 and hoping to be taller than 6' and play basketball for Baylor University one day. I had 80's hair too, but never parachute pants, they would have taken the focus away from my big hair! Ha! You crack me up. Have a blessed day in the Lord. He outdid Himself when He made you!

  4. Happy Birthday!!!! Happy happy happy birthday!!!! You are such an interesting person, and I loved this post! Your sense of humor, authenticity and "sparky"ness are endearing qualities

    #46, 47 & 84 almost ruined my keyboard with spewed coffee.

    BTW, on my blog you asked me some questions, and I answered them over there in the comments section since I couldn't find an email addy for you...thank you for being such a fun, meaningful and faithful commenter.

    I would tell you to have fun this weekend, but I have a feeling you'll do that all on your own!

  5. Happy Birthday! Hope you have a wonderful day.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

  6. Happy Birthday!! Hope you have an awesome day.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog and for praying for my friend.

  7. Happy Birthday! It is my granddaughter's 14th birthday today, too!

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! What a fun post. I enjoyed that alot! We should celebrate our own birthdays. Good for you! I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.

  9. Love to hear more about #80, and was #84 ala Veggie Tales?

    Great list...I know they are tough... I did one too, you'll have to stop by my blog and read it. (Its under Me and Mine on the left hand column)

    Have a great weekend and blessings to you!

  10. Happy Birthday my bestest friend! :) I hope you had a good time. Of course we enjoyed having you guys over (as always) and laughing till we hurt over you smacking my hubby's hat, LOL. I hope you liked dinner, even though it was "not quite" what you ordered, but close. :)
    Have another slice of pie! :)
    I love you,

  11. Ok, you have toooooo much time on your hands!!!!

    Happy belated birthday!

  12. Thanks for sending me to this. I laughed all the way through it. I loved so much of it..."the great wall of China"...hilarious, I would be the one asking you to get me things off the top shelf at Walmart, I too tried to cut my family's hair...not again, I unfortunately have pee'd my pants (didn't mention that...wonder why?),I share your weight loss dreams and lack of true commitment...chocolate anyone?, and maybe one day we can both move to TX and be near Kristi!
    By the way, it took me several edits to actually get to 100...it is much harder than I thought.

  13. I just saw this from your handy Linked Within widget and I had missed it! Shocking! I think I was in MT at that time last year.

    So a much belated Happy Birthday for last summer - now you can feel complete - LOL!
