29

I’m a year wiser today.   I told my husband all I want today is good Mexican Food and some free time to work on random projects:

I’ve never worried about getting older or the aging process….but I also figured a little insurance doesn’t hurt either right?

I’ll let you know if all my new wrinkles magically disappear tonight.  :)

In other news my friend Kim is giving away an amazing kit for the Skipping Squares Quilt paired with Anna Marie Horner’s Little Folks Viole.  Its really really pretty.  You can enter the giveaway here

She is also selling kits in her shop…and lets you pick your own fabric. 

Pin It!

Happy Birthday! Mexican sounds great.

Wishing you a wonderful birthday and many happy returns of the day!

Linda said...

Age is all relative. When I was 29 I thought that was old. Now that I'm 61 I realize just how young 29 was! Amazingly, I still feel as young inside as I did at 29. My 82 year old mother says the same thing - she doesn't feel any different inside than she did as a girl. Enjoy your youth! (Mmmm - Mexican food is my favorite!)

Ricki said...

Happy birthday! Today is my birthday too, only it's my 31st...I wish it was 29! :)

Jill said...

Happy Birthday you young thing! Enjoy it - Mexican food and sewing sounds like a perfect Birthday to me :)

sebbie said...

29 sounds young to me too, I'm 43 and wish I had been creating lovely things like you at your age. I hope you have a lovely day.

Happy Birthday, Allison! You're such a young pup; you don't even need moisturizer yet. If you have an Uncle Julio's Hacienda near you, I highly recommend it for your Mexican dinner.

Enjoy your birthday!
