Yesterday was My Birthday

"The moon was full and bright the night she turned 45...."

Doesn't that sound the start to a great novel?

I had a fabulous birthday. Today I will revisit Tim's facebook page and tally up how many birthday wishes he received in December (is that even possible?) to make sure I received more. Which I am sure I did, but which he doubts.

To celebrate, here's my list of 45 things that do not annoy me, and that, in fact, bring me joy. And I am not including the obvious, like having a happy marriage, healthy children, yada yada yada. These are just random things that I love.

In no particular order...

A full moon

Food Carts

Diet Coke

Crawfish boils


Dresses with semi twirly skirts

Tall boots

I like how you say "fresh" babies. Cause rotten babies are bad. :)

Mrs. G. said...

Happy Birthday, Shana! I wish NYU was in Portland.
