Happy Birthday To Me! Some fun things about me. :)

I celebrated my Birthday last Saturday. Let's say I am over 40. :)

I love Birthdays. I am not one of those people who says, "oh don't worry about it" or "let's not do anything". I love to celebrate Birthdays! It doesn't have to be a huge party, but there does HAVE TO be CAKE.

I especially love CAKE.

CAKE, CAKE, AND MORE CAKE. I like gooooood cakes. Good frosting. I just savor it all week. Not the cheap frosting that some grocery store cakes have that sticks to the roof of your mouth like grease. I mean real, sweet, good frosting.

Having a piece of cake with coffee and being grateful for another year of life.

My sister-in-law visited on Saturday and she brought a cake that my mother-in-law sent from Mobile from Cakes By Judy. My favorite!! So yummy!

Yes, I really can talk this much about CAKE!

Birthdays are that one day to celebrate YOU! It's nice to have one day to say, it's fun to be ME!

Anyway, I am so thankful for my Birthday. I am thankful for another year to enjoy with my family. My husband. My kids. My friends. My job.

I don't talk too much about my job here on the blog, but I want to say that I love my job. It brings me so much joy. I have worked for the Disney Co. for 22 years. 22 years! Wow, that has flown by! I am a singer, comedian, dancer, actor, host, storyteller and more. I laugh with my friends everyday! How fun is that?

So here are just a few pics of what I do, some past, some present:

    Well I don't really like cake but I LOVE cake batter, (just powder and water) can't even have it in the house because I will eat it.
