Special Day

Tomorrow is a very special day. What? You don't have the holiday marked off on your calendars? What is wrong with you people? Tomorrow is my birthday! So tomorrow I am getting my hair done and going out to dinner with the crazies that make up my family. Since I won't be blogging tomorrow, we have to celebrate today. What to do ... what to do.... Well, some people got the memo and sent presents. (I do accept belated gifts so don't despair.) I have two awards which I haven't posted up yet. I know I've been a very bad blog award recipient. But since tomorrow's my birthday, you can't get mad!!!

This happy award is from MamaO.
The usual rules for this award are to say 10 things which make me happy. Now being pregnant and hormonal (that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.) this is my list. This is not a ranked list since it is subject to change at anytime.

1. Mexican food (especially Margaritas, *sigh*)
2. Italian food
3. Puerto Rican food
4. Hot Sandwiches
5. Steaks
6. Seafood
7. Chinese food
8. Cheesecake
9. White chocolate
10. Potato chips

Now this award is from Stephanie @ The Blue Zoo.
Now I'm supposed to tell you some things you don't know about me yet. Now, that all depends on how faithfully you have been reading my blog, doesn't it? It's almost like a test. Anyway, to take the pressure off me because it's my birthday, I stole some questions from

Mama M @ Five Crooked Halos.

How much time do you spend on the computer a day?
Well it all depends on the day, doesn't it? During the week I usually manage to carve out a full two hours for myself between dropping off the four year old and having to pick him up again. On the weekends, I rarely manage to get on the computer at all.

Will you pay for your children's college or raise them to pay their own way?
Hmph. I had to pay my own way and I'm still paying. Not fun. I would like to say that I will pay for everything but I will most likely encourage them to get scholarships and apply to state schools which will only cost me an arm or so. (as opposed to both arms and legs)

Have you ever been in a car accident?
I am not one of those people who have never gotten into an accident. The worst was a head on collision with a tractor trailer. It wasn't my fault. I slid on a sheet of ice and the truck was in my way.

What is you favorite book?
This is a tough one. I can easily read five books or so a week. This makes it hard to choose only one. I do have favorite authors whom I always pick up when I see a new one but I read across genres so there are more than one of those as well.
Dick Francis - mysteries and horse racing that take place in Britain
Nora Roberts - Ranges from contemporary romantic fiction to ghosts, vampires and witches
Mary Balogh - Historical romantic fiction
Catherine Anderson - Contemporary western romances
Elizabeth Peters - Historical mysteries about archaeology

Do you make your bed everyday?
Only when I can't trick my husband into doing it first.

Now that we've become closer friends, I'm sure you are feeling guilty for not getting me a present. It's okay, I also accept cash.


MiMi said...

Yep, I feel guilty.
It's the thought that counts, though right?
So I'm getting you a virtual margarita. It's from this mexican restaurant in my town that has GINORMOUS margaritas. Bottom's up!
Have a wonderful day!

Being that I've only just started following this blog I'm a bit suspicious.. I'm wondering if you tell your readers it's your birthday every month or so to trick the new followers into saying happy birthday to you.

But I'll say it anyway.

Happy birthday. And congrats on the awards.

You won't get another happy birthday off me next month if you do try that stunt.

Make sure your hubs makes the bed for you on your birthday too!

Congrats on the awards and happy belated birthday! The wife's birthday was over the weekend so you were in good company.

mama-face said...

I love that your favorite things are food!! Ah. pregnancy. The only time we are free to eat whatever whenever we want.

My parents wouldn't fork out a dime for college and it just plain wore me out trying to work and pay. Now I overcompensate by paying for almost everything for my children. They WILL have a college education. Phew. Glad I got that off my chest.

Love to know more about you.

I'm Looking to buy [url=][b]TV Stands[/b][/url] or TV [url=][b]Wall Units[/b][/url] For a house I'mclosing on.
Can anyonegive me a good recommendation of where is the topdeal on these? I live in Jersey and I heard that the big thing about these [url=][b]tv stands[/b][/url] is the cost of shipping and installation.
