Yes , ladies & gentlemen, it is my BIG 31st  Birthday today!  I know they're not supposed to count any more after 30, but I still love celebrating!  I love celebrating everything I have been blessed with over the past 31 years!  I love celebrating my next 31+ years!

This year, my birthday has fallen on Houston's beloved "Go Texan Day".  For those of you who ain't from around here, Go Texan Day marks the kick off the the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo festivities.

I love everything related to the rodeo...seeing trail-riders going down the interstate, the world famous bbq cook-off, the parade, and of course, the Rodeo!  At work, we're celebrating by wearing jeans (yes, this is a rarity around here) and having a chili cook off during lunch.  Wish me luck on my chili recipe!  Maybe I'll take home the blue ribbon!

Greg and I are spending the weekend at the casino in Louisiana.  So, please send some birthday luck our way!  Hopefully, we'll hit it big on a black jack table!  I'm more looking forward to a spa day.  I'm in much need of a massage!  For my birthday, Greg got me this beautiful camera bag!  I have been eyeing it since we bought the DSLR, so he surprised me with it for my birthday.  I've actually had it for about a month now :-)  


My parents sent me some birthday money, so I'm using it to buy a CND Shellac UV Light.  I know...sounds weird, but I've been paying monthly to get the shellac put on my nails and once I priced the curing light, I figured it would easily pay for itself.  My sister got one for Christmas so I tried hers out first to make sure I was capable of an at-home shellac mani/ pedi.  Can't wait for it to be delivered next week!



Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!  I know I'll be enjoying mine!!
