Happy Birthday to me………..Happy Birthday to me!

Did you know that today is my birthday?

Of course you did.

I’ve only mentioned it like 73 times on my blog.

In honor of my birthday I took a trip to Rodeo Drive for a fancy schmancy hair cut.

I rubbed shoulders with the likes of Jose Eber and Dr. Robert Rey.

Ok, OK.  I didn’t really rub shoulders with Jose Eber.  I just chatted with him for a bit.  And.  I almost rubbed shoulders with Dr. Rey.  Almost.  We gave our valet tickets to the valet lady at the same time.

My New Do

See my fancy new hair cut?

All it cost me was 4 hours out of my day (I had to drive into LA) and THREE times the price I normally pay for a hair cut.

But.  It was worth it.  I think.

Now I’ll always remember the haircut I got when I turned THIRTY-FIVE.


P.S.  You know that this post was an April Fool’s joke, right?

P.S.S.  My dad just told me that it’s snowing where I was born.  The thick heavy kind.  Just like 35 years ago when I was born.  In a truck.  On the side of the road.

    Happy Birthday! Hope you like your do! Kinda hard to see it though, from that pic! Is it a different cut, or just the same one done by a better stylist? Does your old stylist read you? You may not be able to go back. 😉

    I’m still in AZ, but going home to the snow today. 🙁

    My BFF said she wants to meet you when you come into town. She says Laurie does dinner w/ blogging peeps, and she’s gonna tag along– so I showed her your blog/photo. If you can, hook up with them!

    Happy Birthday old lady!

    THE HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS TO YOU! WAIT…. YOU PULLIN OUR LEG???? IS IT REALLY YOUR BIRTHDAY? ARE YOU REALLY 35 & NOT MAYBE 25??? Hmmmmm I dunno bout you!!! Are you pullin’ a April Fool’s Joke on us maybe??? Love the haircut! You go girl, and how do you stay so skinny??? You make me sick! –April Fools– just kiddin! It’s my Uncle Kenny’s birthday today too! Thanks for stopping at our blogs (NightOwlMama & mine). If you look at my button that doll was my mom’s too. Years ago my dad gave my Mom a heart valentine candy box & that doll came on it. I’m guessing back in the 1950’s. Cool, huh? And if you look really close you’ll see my Mom on the left of my button & my dad on the right. I thought it was an appropriate pic! Have a wonderful birthday my friend! I hope it’s the best ever.

    Happy Birthday- 35 is young, very young and a great age. If I could go back in time I would definitely not choose 35, but only because 25 was even better for me,

    But still, 35 wasn’t bad.
