Another year older?

I celebrated my 29th birthday a couple weeks ago. Again. My mom and Allison insist on figuring out my supposed actual age but when I turned 29, I decided I'd had enough of remembering how old I was. It gets tough to keep up with the numbers when it changes every single year! Do you ever just get tired of doing the math?

Julianne wrapped my gift in newsprint that she decorated herself. I loved it!

I saw this when we went to Salvation Army a couple weeks ago. The girls went to the car for my camera and got a picture of it. Snoopy is my favorite anyhow, and this expresses my philosophy perfectly!

Julianne made me a cake like her friend Chelsea made that had me drooling a while back. Under the cake, you get a little glimpse of the table runner Kathy made for me.

My best friend made me a butterfly bracelet. I can't seem to get a good shot of it but, trust me, it's adorable in person.

It was a wonderful birthday. Since I had such a nice day, I think I might just turn 29 again next year.

  1. Oh yes thank you! I'll take a piece of that cake. It looks delicious! And you don't look a day over 28 anyway, why not turn 29 again:>)

  2. Great job on the cake!!!

    I've been owning my real age since I turned 40 but pretty soon I will lose track again and then I don't know what I will do.

    In the hospital they kept referring to me as the 42 year old I think I'll be good to remember I'll turn 43 this year. lol

    So happy that your birthday was wonderful. They should all be like that.

  3. A belated happy b'day Karen. I have been a little busy with the new knees and all but on your next 29th b'day i will try to get a card sent. It's very special, isn't it? Is there a recipe for the cake? Sometime after i am skinny i would like to try it. LAS

  4. Ha! Happy Birthday, Karen!

    I love Snoopy too!

    The cake looks great! I would love to try this cake sometime...maybe Chelsea will make one soon!

  5. Happy Birthday Karen !!! Special day for a special 29 year old !!

  6. happy birthday, karen (a little late!)

    maybe i'll pick an age and stick with it. i can never remember my age which i know sounds ridiculous.

    i love snoopy (joe cool) too! :)
