It was 43 years ago today

Happy Birthday to me
I bought myself this gorgeous vintage towel a few weeks ago with my upcoming b-day in mind.
Happy Birthday to me
I planned on turning it into a calendar tote for myself to carry on my birthday.
Happy Birthday to me
well, today is the day
Happy Birthday to me
No tote for me!
OK, I know this is a shameless attempt to have my birthday acknowledged but so far 3 people in my house have awoken and not remembered :(

Happy Birthday!!!! I like to make my bday a big deal so I know how bummed I would be if someone forgot.

Sarah said...

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Carol, Happy Birthday to you!

(that was me singing to you)

I'm sure you already know, but birthdays are just not the same after having kids. My daughter's birthday is two days before mine. So my birthday is pretty nonexistant. Some years I'm ok with it, some years it just really stinks.

1965, a very good year! I'll be 43 in December. What a great dishtowel!!!!

Celebrate it yourself!!!! If nobody else makes it special don't let it get you down... Whoop it up! You deserve the cake, the ice cream, and AT LEAST one present to yourself.... and your family can have fun by joining in, and hopefully they'll feel guilty a little bit...

I hope it turns into a happy day for you.

Jolene said...

Aww, they did not remember yet? Well, here is wishing you a HAPPY Birthday!!

Stephanie said...

Happy Birthday!! Love the towel, tote or not.

Happy Birthday! Love that towel. Don't worry if it's not a tote yet -- 1965 will always be your special year.

(This makes me want to go searching for my own birth year towel, by the way...)

A very happy birthday to you! I love the linen towel and think it would make for a fabulous sewing project.

debbie said...

It's your own fault you know! You have to start at least a week before giving them all hints! Maybe your kids and the hubby can plead innocent, but not our Mother, she was there! I hope she didn't forget. Anyway, hope you liked my singing message, and I hope it didn't get you all verclempt, I know how you get about singing. Love ya baby sis

sappmama said...

Your shamelessness is paying off! Happy birthday! And many, many more to come. :)
