Happy Birthday to Me!

Hey, it's my special day! And in honor of my special day, I hope everyone out there has a special day, also! Let's make it a day full of lucky pennies and good clearance prices and book deals.

So it's a big birthday for me, and anytime we hit milestone moments in our lives, it's worthwhile to take a step back and acknowledge the things that make us happy. In the spirit of that, I leave you with my "Happy Birthday to Me" video. I'm hoping someone besides just my mom and my dad and my Aunt Helen enjoys it!



Hope everyone is having a great week!

Those were great to see--love your Smurf collection and your discipline--that you definitely have as you have accomplished so much and stay organized in a way that most of us would kill for.
