I wanted to take a minute and thank you all for your comments, phone calls, emails and text messages for my birthday yesterday! Age 45 was wonderful. 46 is going to be even more awesome.

Today is my blogiversary! Can you believe that I have been blogging for 4 years? I would have thought that I would have run out of words long ago!! I guess getting my stories and words out there just made room for MORE words and MORE stories.

I thank each and every one of you that has been around for the ride. You have been kind to me when I have cried and life has been tough. You have rejoiced with me in the purchase of my house and the addition of Molly and Gingerbean to the family. You have kicked me in the butt and told me to get over myself when I was having a pity party. You have been there good and the bad and I appreciate it so very very much.

I want to meet each and every one of you!! You are such a big part of my life and I adore you all.

So today...we PARTY! There is a buffet over there on the right....help yourself and keep coming back! I have stocked the fridge with tea, diet coke and Sonic Ice. There is cheesecake, chips and hot sauce, burritos from Rainmakers, nachos from Mi Mexico, chicken fried steak and gravy, sugar cookies and just what ever you desire! Feel free to add to the buffet! Kick off your shoes and pull up a chair and lets just chit chat!

And did I mention that there was a door prize? Just leave me a comment and you are entered to win. This is the prize....
Because that is my wish for you today.....I wish for you joy.

....whose heart is so happy.


  1. Hope your blogversary is as happy as your birthday, which I hope is twice as happy as your wildest dreams!
    You always put a smile on my face!

  2. ...And Happy Blogiversary!

    I brought hot artichoke dip with wheat crackers (You know, the good ones that are on the sweet side). Also some warm brie with toasted, sugared almonds and raspberry jam in the middle, surrounded by pastry. Oh, and some mulled wine for the season. (I'm longin' for the holidays, and now you've made one).

    We wanna meet you too!! A big in person party. That would be fun.

    Happy Blogiversary! I'm so very happy I found you!!
    I adore you too.

  4. Hey Mom Gator, I am glad that you had a happy birthday. Did you and Ginger bean bet wild and crazy? I bet so. So, anywho I am glad it is you blogversary. I love you bunches!!!

  5. Happy Blogiversary! Mmm, the buffet sounds great, especially since we're back from being gone for a week and the cupboards are bare. PG has my mouth a-watering for that artichoke dip & the baked brie!

    Hope you had a happy birthday, too. You're just 5 months ahead of me on 46, so I'm glad to hear that it will be better than 45.

    We wanna meet you, too. Like PG said, a big party would be fun!

  6. Wow! Four years blogging. Happy Blogiversary. :)

  7. Happy Blogaversary...Bother the new facebook which seems intent on helping me to miss my friends' birthdays - delighted yours was sooo good.
    Have a wonderful year, both on and off the blog

  8. Happy blogversary! Four years is a long time to do anything. I noticed you did not have any FlipSides (cheddar, of course) so I brought them to the party. I don't really need anything else. If you are looking for me, I'll be bingeing on them in the corner. :-)

  9. Happy Bday and Blogversary. You rock girlfriend!

    Peace and love,

  10. Happy birthday, and happy blogiversary! I brought some Texas Torte! Let's go get our mani-pedi tonight!

  11. Happy blogiversary! I love my crazy Texas girlfriend! We will meet in person one day - deal?

  12. OMG, Happy Anniversary!

    Bad blog friend also says Happy Birthday late, but I brought chocolate covered strawberries. Yea. Everyone needs a party!

    Happy Birthday!!
    Happy Anniversary!!

    I brought some Texas Caviar to share & some Fritos to dip with!!

  14. Happly blogversary!!! What fun - 4years. Wow. I am trying to find a way to print my blog. I feel like I documented so much of my life ... kinda like a diary. Looking forward to 4 more years of bits and odd pieces ...

    Your royal subject, Adrienne ;-)

  15. Aargh! I missed your birthday, so happy birthday a day late! Many wishes for a wonderful year for you, sweetie!

    Also, a happy bloggin' birthday. I am so glad you tossed your hat in the ring and kept this going. You are a sweet encouragement and you make me smile!

    Yeah for Sonic Ice!!!!

  16. Pretty pretty! (and so is the door prize) I have noticed there were no clowns anywhere. That was my special gift to you... no clowns. But your birthday is over now, so...

  17. Sweet Jesus on a Spring!

    I cannot freakin' believe you are 46. Forty-friggin-six. Wow. That's just...woah. I thought you were like 41 or something. And now Ester tells me she's 45. And Rose is like, I dunno, 50 or something. When did y'all get to be so OLD???

    ~runs away before you try to kick my butt with your orthopedic shoes~

    P.S. I brought prunes to the party. Evidently, you'll need them.

  18. Happy Birthday MINDY! 45? That makes me older than you! Sorry I missed your B-day, I've been all wrapped up in myself. Have you received your AARP card in the mail? No? Perhaps you need a new pair of orthopedic, or as we used to call them, army boots! What? No, I don't want a slap upside my head! I was just kidding!
    ~Love You!

  19. this looks like it is going to be great.please be patient with me. Your blog is beautiful. Thanks love Lydia

  20. I think you are DA BOMB. Truly. Did you see your Facebook video card I left you??? I hope???

    I have fresh apples and some cider. That's for the kiddies. You and me can split a bunch of hard cider... yummers.

    And since I'm a day late posting here, I guess I'll just split it with you since everyone else has gone home...



  21. Happy Belated Birthday and Blogiversary~

  22. Big in person party, I'm there for it!

  23. Awwww, man, I missed your blogaverary AND your birthday. I hope both were so very wonderful for you! You are such a sweetie-pie!
