25 days left...

sniff...I wish this could last forever

I must admit though, I used to have a "Pre-Birthday MONTH", a "Birthday MONTH", and a "Post-Birthday MONTH" but Thad put his foot down and made me stop that stuff a couple of years ago. I think he got mad because my "Pre-Birthday MONTH" shadowed his birthday in September...poor thing. (eyes rolling)

He just gets soooo jealous ;)

October is ALL about me. I do not share this month with any other member of my family, can you believe that? Not my parents, not my husband nor my child, not my brothers nor my sisters, not my in-laws...no one. So therefore, October is MINE...for the whole month!

I am so spoiled blanketed in l-o-v-e,

don't you think?

If you have any doubt about it, just look at this gorgeous throw above. I love the black and gold (so elegant) and I love me some fleur de lis!!!!

My sweet sister Penny (the one with the new house) and my  sweet little niece Payton surprised me with this the night of my birthday. Plus, they took me out for dinner where we laughed...and cried...and laughed some more. It did wonders to get together and take the edge off of dealing with Dad. I enjoyed sitting and talking with Payton about her upcoming Homecoming, (did I mention that she made Homecoming Court? yay!) and I secretly enjoyed wondering if Penny was really going to eat ALL of those fajitas she ordered! My big butt ordered a salad while her size 2 butt ordered the whole fajita meal! Yes, we laughed and it was fun and No, she didn't eat it all.  Now, Penny and Payton are probably reading this and laughing again, I hope so! It just makes me realize that we need to do this more often. 

Even though October may not be your birthday month, go out and enjoy a moment with someone special...it really does do the soul some good! Trust me on that one!!!

Thank you for my beautiful blanket (filled with love) and thank you all for sharing in my birthday MONTH excitement!!!

ps...Thad is REALLY jealous of my blanket...what am I going to do with him? After all, he got a chocolate chip birthday cake and I DID NOT!

Well, let me mention that I ate 95% of it. Sorry Thad.

I love that throw also. If you can get by with the birthday month, more power to you. I share my month with my oldest son. He was born the day before I was 24. Every seven years our birthdays are on Thanksgiving day.

Jodie, I loved hearing about your night out with Penny and Payton. I'm sure you all needed that so much. Tell Payton congrats on making homecoming court!!! I love the blanket. Your sister knows you so well, I can tell by her gift.
Thanks for letting us all share your month with you. I'm having a blast.

There is only one thing wrong with your blanket of love...it would look so-o-o much better at my house!
Girlie, it's your b'day month...go for the fajitas...with a margarita! You know what I say...go big or go home! Look at me if you need proof!!!
You have a great family.

How nice of them to surprise you. Such a lovely gift! :)

I'm taking notes for my next B'Day, I clearly have not been "milking it" like I should! I'm so glad you're getting back to your old "fiesty" self. (whoops, did I say old? scratch that!)
Have a wonderful week!

Hi Birthday Girl!

I love your fleur de lis throw, have always loved the design and the rich blue and gold is great.
Glad that you could go out to eat with your Sister and niece and have some fun.
It is important to do something special with family or friends and to have a good time and some laughs.

I can really appreciate a woman who claims a whole month! Go Jodie! In my family, everything happens in June -- anniversary & all birthdays, but mine. I share January with my dad, which is a real privilege!
Enjoy your month!

It looks like your birthday month is going along splendidly! What a lucky girl you are. Your new blanket is very pretty. Maybe you can be a sweetie and share with Thad, make him cuddle under it with you!

I know you LOVE your blanket of love and with the emblem that is sooooooooo YOU! The fleur de lis!!!
You are sooooo loved Jodie, you can't imagine!!!
Penny and Payton knew what you needed and liked! There's something about a blanket wrapped around our shoulders that make us feel loved, secure, sort of like being hugged/embraced... And it couldn't have come to you at a better time...for your special day, and all the days that you may find you need to be surrounded by comfort and love!
Just don't forget you are loved by many and especially me!
Continued happy birthday wishes silly girl!!!
Love and wishes for you,

Hmmm...what's wrong with having a pre-birthday month-even if it does coincide with hubby's birthday month. After all it is always about the girls isn't it? LOL! Sounds like dinner with your sister and niece was a lot of fun!

Birthday Blessings,
