I rarely think about my actual age. Not that I don’t FEEL it some days, (!) but today is my birthday and I’m thinking about the “number”. I’m also reflecting a bit ~
A tornado hit the area of Oklahoma City where my folks lived the day I was born. It actually did some pretty major damage to our house and they brought me home from the hospital to live in a kitchenette motel for a few weeks while repairs were made. Welcome to this world, Paula ~ I’m sure it was very stressful for my parents….but for me, well….I don’t recall a thing ! 🙂 (But love the stories!)
I have been celebrating my birthday all week long with different family members. Today, I will have lunch with my mom and dad and hubby. So HaPpY BiRtHdAy to me! I’m not gonna ignore it, because I appreciate each and every year that I meet! So birthdays? I say, bring em on!
I truly appreciate you guys so much. Thanks for reading and sharing, “Stuff I Tell My Sister”. If you don’t mind, I’d like to ask for TWO favors today.
1. Share “Stuff I Tell My Sister” with a friend or two today. Maybe they could like us on Facebook! (www.facebook.com/sisterstuff) 😉
2. Be good to yourself and kind to others. ♥ You deserve it and so do they ~
I hope each of you have a super great April 27th! And if ya have the chance ~ eat a cupcake for me!
I’m giving you a few photos “sneaks” from our week so far. Things will get back to semi-normal next week and maybe something good will pop into my head to share! 😉
At the Missouri Travel Center ~ he made me laugh ~
The dock view below our room ~
Our red-headed entertainment ~ (our oldest son) (http://www.youtube.com/user/mjblaxton/featured ~ to take a listen ♪ ♫ ♪)
Magic by our youngest….lol! (If you see him, ask him about the tingtong ball trick!)
I love to set the camera timer and then RUNNNN to jump in the pic. It worked this time ~
Happy Day All! ♥♥♥
As always, love the pics. Hope your special day is as special as you deserve and welcome back!
Thank you, Christi ~ A super great day!
Have a Happy Birthday!!! I love your attitude about birthdays, it just like mine – Birthdays are better than the alternative. I love the pictures too.
Exactly, Shannon!! And thanks so much ~ Hope your weekend is the best! ♥
LOVE, love, love the family pic….so hard to get everyone together (though Shelby was missing, darn it). Loved the photo of the waterfall – how peaceful; who needs to go to Maui for a waterfall? But how about you girls with jackets on but wearing your flip flops? Ha, you’re tougher than me. HaPPy BirTHday Miss Paula, thanks for sharing your day with the rest of us!
Thanks, Darla ~ we had lots of fun…but it did turn off cold that day! We were in real shoes the next day! lol
Happy birthday. My sister is my best friend too.
Thank you, Naomi! And that is awesome ♥ Have a great weekend!

Happy, happy birthday Paula!! Keep celebrating – at least for a MONTH:) Did you buy yourself anything special this year?
Thanks Jeannette! Hubby bought me a new lens for my camera! yay! And I did buy an antique cross necklace…..silver and oynx, on our trip. Lots of goodies & cards from fam & friends….I will take your advice and continue the celebration! lol! ♥
Loved your pictures!! Happy Happy Birthday to a very special friend!! I love birthdays as well and thankful for each one I have!! Hope this day continues to be great!! Enjoy your lunch with your Mom and Dad and Hubby!! Can’t get more special than that!! Love ya Paula!! 🙂 😀
Thanks, Ms. Dottie! Couldn’t ask for a better week ~ Much love ♥
Paula…Happy Birthday! I’m sure you have heard this question before: “If you didn’t know how old you are, how old would you be?” Do you have a “bucket list”? I’m sure your Mom made all your favorite foods for your Birthday lunch today. You are blessed to have so many people who want to celebrate your birth…and you deserve all the love they give you. Where was that beautiful waterfall? I enjoyed all your photos. No cupcakes in my kitchen, but I do have strawberries and shortcake….would that be a good substitute for me to eat in your honor?
I do have a bucket list “of sorts”, Delores ~ Starting a blog was on that list! And what a great question! That answer varies with the day! lol! The waterfall was in Dogwood Canyon in Lampe, MO. They had so many of them!!! Oh please…strawberries & shortcake?! YUMMMM! You are a dear, thanks for the wishes! ♥
I’m assuming you’re 29 again. I’m catching up with you now 🙂 Happy Birthday Mom, and though I didn’t have a cupcake, I had a beer for you tonight. That will have to do.
Hmmm…I don’t drink beer, Chi…but if it was a “cheers” to me…that works just fine ~ Oh…I gave up the 29…jumped to 49! lol! love you ♥
Thank you for the follow. I am so glad to have discovered your blog, and look forward to following yours!
Thanks to you, too! I appreciate finds like yours! ♥

You’re NOT 29?!?!? When I turned 29 (the first time) you sent me a card that said, “Welcome to the Forever 29 Club”…if you’re not, then that means I am…ummm…oh noooooooooooo…say it ain’t so….
toooooo funny….ok…we can be 29 if you want…..but it may involve some surgeries and a LOT of $…for me, that is! 🙂
