Yep, tomorrow (February 1st) is my birthday! I'm celebrating by taking the day off of work and having a delicious dinner with all my favorite foods and my family. Tomorrow's dinner menu: deviled eggs, pot roast, potato glop (an amazing invention of my dad's involving potatoes, cheese, sour cream, and secret ingredients), and yellow cake with chocolate and cream cheese frosting. I can't wait!

I'm still trying to work on becoming a less stressed-out person in hopes that it will help with my headaches. In addition to yoga, acupuncture, and fitball massage, I'm trying to be more spiritual. Here's a quote from one of my favorite authors (Kurt Vonnegut) I am inspired by:

We are what we imagine ourselves to be.

Oh Well
I'm bummed that I didn't win the Great American Craft Off contest )-: But, as the saying goes, I'm "honored to have been nominated." I sure could have gotten lots of cool stuff with that huge Michael's gift card!
