The best gifts are free

I did it!

I’m officially 40

I’ve been 40 for 6 weeks or so and I’ve been thinking about my birthday.

I was spoiled

I booked the day off

Had breakfast at a restaurant all by myself


Spent the day at the spa.

I was massaged, wrapped, creamed and got all 20 of my nails painted pretty.

My boss dropped my favorite salad for me at the spa and she made sure I had a celebration drink.


After it all, I have to admit that the best part of my day was when Emily gave me my birthday gift.

In the car, during our commute to school that morning Emily took her Justin Bieber CD out of the radio and replaced him with my Bon Jovi CD

When I asked her what she was doing she simply said : “Happy Birthday mom”


She picked Wanted Dead or Alive and did her best to sing along.

It’s been 6 weeks, my CD is still there.


Best gift ever!!!

  1. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog centered on the same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would enjoy your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot
    me an email.

  2. LOL, now that’s awesome!! I was in the car once and getting frustrated with traffic, and the fact that nothing good was on the radio and I was just letting the external world influence me too much – and Mr T reached over and turned on the Meatloaf CD.
    You’re right, that’s pretty much the biggest expression of love there is!
