Happy Birthday to Me

December 1, 2008

I’m sure my lack of posting today has you thinking, “gee, Emily must be doing something terribly cosmopolitan and festive – surely she’s swanking it up City-style!” 

Of course you’re sorrily mistaken if that is what you’re thinking.

Driving eleven hours from Arizona to home, arriving here at 7:00 a.m., and having the day off of work made for a perfect storm of an excuse to do nothing today.  I even told Rachel not to come up for dinner as planned.  Well that was 100% selflessness on my part – she’s officially in Retal Hell and I’m sure she needs to rest her weary bones, right? 😀

Friday shall be the swankety swank citified dinner, cocktails, and dancing – so I’m holding the party spirit until then.


Here’s me 30 years ago, looking like a badass in my Cookie Monster slippers.



  1. happy bday miss em!

  2. The world better watch out Friday night cuz we’re gonna paaaaaaaartaaaay! Happy Happy Birthday! I love you bunches Cousin Em! *HUGS* 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. Happy Birthday Emily!

  4. Emily and Chinook…what a wonderful Birthday photo! I am sure your party on Friday will be another one for the books!

  5. AH! I want to pinch your little cheeks (and you know how I feel about children and cheeks!)! You’ve been a bad ass from day one my friend.

    Happy Happy (belated) Birthday! I wish SO MUCH that I could fly down for this weekend’s festivities, because I know you will have such a fabulous time!

  6. Oh, happy happy happy happy birthday! I’m a day late, but still earlier than the Friday festivities, right?

    I wish you all the best for the coming year.
