I am 50 years old today!


Well I have just turned half a century old today! My Dad called and just said, "you're half way there". Then he said Happy Birthday of course. He is too funny! I asked him how he knew I was going to be atleast 100 years old some day and he said he just knows. I've heard from everyone in my family already and it is only 10:40 a.m. Megan called first, then my Mom and Dad, then my younger sister, then Jenny and last but not least my middle sister! My nieces all yelled Happy Birthday to me when my younger sister called-they are a scream!! Tonight Megan, Ken, John and I are going to an Italian Restaurant called Mama's for dinner. I can't wait to order the Chicken Francaise-it is so yummy! Their steamed veggies are awesome too! Should be a fun time. Jenny and Kevin couldn't make it-they will be missed. I told all the guys at work to give me a nice, quiet day and they have so far. In a little while we'll be going to lunch. It is so nice to be pampered! Oh I forgot John made me breakfast too this morning-he's a sweetie! I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
