Just passing along the good news...





Tomorrow morning- between 4 am and 10:30 am (or until pastries run out) Starbuck's is offering free pastries with the purchase of a beverage. Sounds like a nice way to jumpstart the day, if you ask me! Although I guarantee you I won't be headed to my nearest Starbuck's anytime before 7 am. =)
In bigger news...
Happy Birthday to my MOM!!
Feel free to leave her a birthday wish here today. She's turning the big 6-0, but you didn't all hear it from me! In honor of her being the youngest 60 year old person I know, and also for the fact that I wouldn't be here and you wouldn't read this blog if it weren't for her, I'd like for 60 of you to leave her a birthday wish in the comments. She claims she's my biggest fan and she is an avid reader of this blog even though she won't turn on a computer herself. =) I happen to find that endearing, Mom. Among a million other things I love about you. Like your zucchini bread recipe- which I made today while I was thinking of you.
I wish you a whole lot of love, Joy and happiness in your life.
From me and all the Nitty.Gritty. Family.... Happy Birthday today!
We love you so much!

Happy Birthday (probably a bit late) to Jody's mom!!! LOVE to read her postings and tell you "Mom" that you did a great job in raising her!! We were born/raised in MN but live in WI now so have some (sort of) things in common!
Blessings to you!

Happy Birthday to Jody's mom. I'm sure you can take some credit for what an inspiring person Jody is. And she can look forward to looking amazing in 20plus years like you do now. Blessings. Have a wonderful day.

Happy Birthday.... and wow you look great for 60!!!!! HOW INSPIRING!

Karey said...

60 is only a number to be ignored unless that is your weight. Hope she is feeling great about having a birthday and not worrying about the number.
Happy Belated Birthday to Jody's mom!
Saying a prayer for health and happiness. As a mom who doesn't live in the same state as one child, I know just being together is a blessing. Hope you are able to be together sometime soon.

Dear Jody's Mom,
I think of you nearly daily when I see the little handprints on our big-screen...Jody will fill you in on the rest of the story, but I want you to know that Jody is one of my most favorite people EVER.

Thank you for giving her life, and giving me such a sweet gift too. : )

Happy Happy Birthday!
