Some people would prefer that people not know that it’s their birthday.

I am not one of those people.

My birthday is tomorrow! And I’m going to be the big 3-5.

Wow. Time sure flies when you’re having fun!

I’m always happy when my birthday comes around. The weather’s getting warmer, the summer festivities are on their way…and I have enjoyed yet another year on this earth! Despite its challenges, I’m very, very grateful to be here. Especially since I have so many wonderful friends and family members that I love so dearly. For example, I happen to be married to the most wonderful man in the world. Aren’t I just the lucky one?

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I know that I’m extremely blessed to have all the great friends and family that I do (you all know who you are!).

I could mention all of your names right here, but then I would be afraid I’d forget someone’s name. Oh, the horror!

Instead, I will just tell you about one more person: my sister Sheri. I’ve mentioned Sheri before on my blog, and I just want to reiterate that she and I have one of those special “sister relationships.” We know each other so well, and even if we don’t talk often, we always have and always will share that special connection that sisters often share. And again she showed how well she knows me by sending me the most thoughtful, clever birthday gift—check it out!

Isn’t this the coolest gift ever? I love it! And I love my sister.

And I love my birthday! I’m not ashamed to admit it.

Happy Birthday Carla Jeanie Beanie! Oh, how I remember well the day that you were born. Another joyous! You were so cute with your bald little head. You're still so cute, though you did eventually grow some hair. And in case some of you were wondering...our wonderful parents let us name you. Our brother, Steve suggested it. He knew a bank teller named Carla, and he liked the name. So, Carla it was...named after some bank teller chick, whom we never met. (laughing!) And she grew to be Miss Healthypants...named for...(what else) eating salads. And now you know the rest of the story.
(Hey, I would buy apparel, etc. with the Miss Healthypants logo!!! Great gift Sheri!)
Have fun!
Love ya!

Happy Birthday to you.

Miss Healthypants said...

Aww, thanks y'all! You all make me feel so special! *smiles*

Murry, I can't believe you remember the day I was born--I certainly don't! *grin* And I'm glad I grew some hair--but does it have to be on my chin, too? *hee hee* Love you, seester! :)

And Diane, what a great idea! Boskey, you would really sell MHP merchandise on your site? *smiles* We already have one customer in Murry! That rocks!! *grin*

Sheki said...

Let's do it! I'll be more than happy to get some MHP gear going!! :) I'd wear a "I Loves Me Some Salad!" T-shirt!
Love you, Birthday Girl!

I can see the whole world eating salads because of MHP!!!!!!! If we all ate salad we would have PEACE on Earth! Think of how great it would be for our environment! Seriously, MHP is gonna change the world!! YAY!!!
I am actually inspired to eat more salads!

I did the 3-5 a couple years ago. I've been joking that I can't deny my mid 30s since. Still, you are just a day older than you were yesterday. Hope you have loads of fun!


Jason Boskey said...

If your sister gets me the logo, Miss Healthypants would get a section on the Boskey Radio West shop. I'll even send a MHP thong to your beloved!

Oh, and I haven't found that thing I promised you yet. :(

Buck said...

I've never gotten this many comments before.

You suck.

Happy Birthday anyway. You know I love you. Even though you suck.

Lorraine said...

Dude, sorry I'm late to the party but happy frakkin' birthday. Love you like my luggage!

sageweb said...

Happy Birthday...even though it is late...hope you had a good one.

Miss Healthypants said...

Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes and for getting me all excited about possibly selling some MHP merchandise! *smiles*

rosemary said...

Miss Healthypants said...

Thanks, Rosemary! :)

Why isn't that head of lettuce the logo for this website?

Miss Healthypants said...

Boskey, I have no idea how to do that, even if I wanted to. But I'm sure that logo is trademarked, right?

Iwanski and I were thinking we could create our own--perhaps a head of lettuce with pants? *grin*

Jason Boskey said...

If it's trademarked, then you're wearing unlicensed, illegal clothing!!!! Take it off now!!!

Like Spongebob, only lettuce?

Miss Healthypants said...

Yes, Boskey--like Spongebob, only lettuce. *smiles*
