38 Candles



Yes, it's my special day!  And, I couldn't be happier...



I celebrate for 2-3 weeks, but tonight I will have a
special dinner with my boys. Each year just gets
better and better...and better.  Seriously.  I LOVE
that I'll have 38 candles on my cake.


Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Lolli





And, since it's all about me, I thought I would
answer some random questions, per the internet...


Plus share my favorite photo from the week...

(Oh, how this gal LOVES a cold, refreshing Coke...in a can, with a straw.)







Or, maybe 2 photos...






It is all about ME, right???

Happy birthday Dina! I LOVE the Coke sign shot. The sun rays filtering through the trees and the sun flare are just perfect. Not to mention, I'm a huge fan of Coke! :)
Thanks so much for joining Alicia and I for our Crazy Days of Summer again this week. I can't wait to see what you'll do with next week's theme: yellow.

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday from one Coca Cola fan to another.

That seems to be a popular drink in this week's Crazy Days of Summer Challenge.

Love the Coke photo and how the light falls on it. The man up above must drink it too :)

Happy birthday girl. Love your attitude, as that is my age as well. And that quote in your first shot is perfect. Thanks for linkin up to our crazy days of summer. Love that vintage looking coke sign.

Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud said...

I'm such an idiot. I told you that next week's Crazy Days of Summer photo challenge theme is yellow, but it's really WATER. Please excuse my mistake. Obviously, I need more sleep. ;)

Hope you're having a great weekend!
