FRIDAY BIRTHDAY WEAR...

...
Not quite enough candles on my virtual cake, but it was such a lovely day.  Received ALL but ONE of my most important birthday calls (poor thing - he forgot!).  The first call was from my MaMa, and we talked about the day of my birth!  I learn something new every time we have this discussion.  Today I learned my birth weight, and how the mid-wife weighed me - (yes, mid-wife), interesting.  And I thanked my MaMa for birthing me!
WORK WEAR FRIDAY:  Jacket:  Simplicity A1738 -  Made in a pontederoma knit.  An easy Wardrobe Staple believe me!  I need to make another one in a bright color.  Didn't like this jacket when I first made it, but LOVE it now and get so much wear out of it. (Just grab it - throw it on and go.   Skirt:  Colette Mable Patterns - Mable of course - Made in a polka-dot pontederoma knit.  Needed to add red as my pop of color today for a school picture.     
Believe me, I thank God for living to see another brand new year and celebrating yet another birthday. 

TELLER AT THE BANK TODAY:  "Happy Birthday"!
ME:  How did you know?
TELLER:  I'm looking at your information.
ME:  Oh, why thank you!
TELLER:  I hope I look as good as you when I turn that age.
ME:  (Crickets... realizing she actually knew my age) (Big smile, realizing it was indeed a compliment) I hope you do too hun-ty!!!!
