What a great day!

Welcome to our Friday Followers!!  Comments will be returned and so will follows. :)  Don't forget to enter our Barbie giveaway!!

My birthday went really well.  I was a little upset that I really had no one to go out to celebrate my birthday with, but I ended up not being able to complain about how my day went.  

Things changed for me when I got older.  My family really can't afford to buy me presents anymore, so I bought my own cake and went to the mall yesterday and got myself a shirt from the clearance section of Sears.  Of course it's a disappointment, I don't like to sound selfish and bitchy, but I know my mom could have given me a little something.  It hurts and makes me feel like they really don't care about me for all I do for them and all the money I end up spending on groceries for my mom.  -- But I digress --

When I got back from the mall, I sat down to a nice birthday lunch serving myself Panda Express.  (My most favorite type of Chinese food!)  It was absolutely delicious.  I only treat myself to Panda Express every once in a while!!

Since the weather was absolutely gorgeous, we took the kids outside for a while.  The weather was near 70 and all of the kids were outside.  As a mom, I love when my kids go outside! LOL  It usually means a reasonable bedtime from running around with friends and the air!  Taking them outside in the nice weather is definitely a natural tranquelizer, that's for damn sure!

Then we had the most delicious dinner of corned beef and cabbage.  My mom got the recipe from my late grandmother.  It has been my traditional birthday dinner ever since I was a little girl.  For as long as I can remember, we had corned beef, cabbage and a birthday cake... Which is just what we had. 

I decided to get myself a Carvel ice cream cake. :)  I figured, hell, if I'm gonna mess up my diet, I better do it GOOD!!  And I did...  It was delicious.
Even though I wished that I had some friends to go out with yesterday, I ended up having the best birthday with my two most favorite people in the girls. :)

Thank you for all the birthday wishes! Everyone here and on Facebook made me feel like a princess!
