16th LID on the 16th....does that...

...................make it my Champagne LID????

What a ride....how many more months do I have to go? You would not believe how many people have said to me....."Well Debz, hopefully you'll have your daughter by your next birthday". That actually sucks to hear that...MY BIRTHDAY IS A FREAKING YEAR AWAY!!!! LOL, I know they mean well. But it doesn't always help especially after looking at what RQ has to say about timelines....I'm still pressing on even though we could be another 20 something months away. One step closer is one step closer right?

Thanks to all of you who wished me a happy birthday here on my blog and as well as on facebook. I know some of you link to here from there so don't be shy leave a comment and say hello. Just simply hit the comment button below this post, write a comment, sign your name and send. Easy as pie.

Below is a pic that my dear husband and daughter put on the power point in church on Sunday morning during announcements! It totally caught me off guard and almost made me cry. They took me out to my favorite Chinese food spot "China Star" and surprised me again with the sweetest birthday cake evah! We were so full afterwards we could hardly budge so we didn't get to try out the Mooncakes yet Krista and Nikki but I'll let you know what I think when I do.

"Happy" 16th! Tomorrow is our local moon festival. I'm skipping the moon cakes and going for the moon pies! =) I'll pass on both for some of that birthday cake, though. YUM!

Happy birthday a little late! Love the cake. My daughter made me a ladybug cake for my birthday back in July. Looks like great minds think alike. Here's to many more.
