It's Monday! 22!

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22! ;)
Last week I celebrated turning 22! After the 21st birthday it seems like it is all downhill skiing. There's nothing special after that.... except when I get to 50 I guess..... :( I did have a fun time celebrating with my family though and we had an Oreo cake that I made. :)
They also gave me some awesome presents! A fun nursing mug, a crochet book, the book Far From the Madding Crowd and a Celtic Woman CD and DVD. They know me so well. :)
Also, my 5th Blogiversary is Monday January 11th so be sure to check out that post and read about the giveaway HERE.

    1. Thank you! I love Clannad too! I used to listen to a lot of celtic music on Pandora so I would hear a lot of different celtic bands. Now I have obtained more of the music so I don't listen there quite as much.

  6. It's not all downhill after 22! You are VERY young. And some of your best years are still to come. I loved my 30s. You've read some great books. I love Lois Lowry.

  7. Oh no, I missed your birthday. :-/ For some reason, I thought it was in the early teens, but just checked last year's and see you posted on the 10th, so, oops! I was also going to do the Taylor Swift reference. :^) Have a Blink 182 reference for next year, and Tim McGraw for 30... hehe.

    I was going to do something different for a change, and maybe "surprise" you (just that I knew b'day was coming)... I already haven't sent a sarcastic New Years resolutions thing. ;-)

    BTW, I'm usually really good with remembering birthdays, although I didn't send any last year, for the same reasons I've been MIA. :-/

    Happy belated Birthday, Lois!!! God bless and TTYL.

    P.S. I just read the nursing mug! :-O

    1. Well I'm kind of careful to not let on to the exact date of my birthday... I think.
      Thank you! :)

    1. Haha! Well I read an article about her stories the other night and I think I can appreciate them a little bit more now.

  9. Oh, I think there are still some special birthdays to come - like all of them! :) 30 was a tough one for me, it's hard to wrap your mind around the fact that you actually are (in the eyes of the world anyway) a real "grown up", yikes!
