I have been waiting for this day my whole life. As of yeterday, I am now 42!!!
My birthday weekend started off great. I was carded to buy wine at Wegman's grocery store! (They now have a policy that they must card 100%, even if you look like you are 99 years old. But who cares? I got carded at the end of my forty-first year!)
You may know that I LOVE the REDSKINS. Wasn't that nice of them to win this week just for my birthday??? When I was little, my favorite players were Charlie Taylor, Sonny Jurgensen, and Billy Kilmer. Sonny wore #9, Billy wore #17, and Charlie wore...can you guess????...#42! I also remember when I had to memorize my multiplication tables, 6x7 was easy for me to remember.
So yesterday dh asked me what will I look forward to now that I am finally 42. Silly guy. Art Monk is my ALL TIME favorite Redskin. He was #81. I can look forward to being 81 :)
I actually made these cards last Friday. I pulled out my corregated paper that I purchased at Mike's a decade ago. Do they still sell it? Not that I want any! I have a drawer full. I have not used it in years, until this year. I used some on my Father's Day cards, then as this cupcake. See, it pays off to hoard sometimes :) Now I have used every bit of this Basic Grey dp too. Life is good...
I'll share my birthday cards from friends tomorrow.
