In My Birthday Suit…

By January 27th, 202174 Comments

In My Birthday Suit...

Today is my 30th + (-2) birthday… sigh.

I cleared my schedule, got last night’s Modern Family cued up…. trying to wait ’til noon to have a glass of wine.

What should I do today?!
Edited To Add:

One thing I have done today was take a page out of Leandra’s book and send out ‘thank yous’ to those who have influenced my life, no matter how big or small. For the past 2 hours, I’ve done just that, and it was quite the emotional experience.

So thank you, curly dolls, for reading, commenting, submitting, sharing, teaching… supporting. Thank you for allowing me to provide this service and for letting me (selfishly) occasionally use it as a place to rant. When I created CN, I had no idea what it would evolve into. The positivity, love, and support you show one another is truly inspiring. I’m just the mere steward of all this curly goodness πŸ™‚

In the words of Leandra, “If you ever want to experience a natural high, practice gratitude. Find reasons to celebrate life. You’ve only got this one (that you know of).”

Let the Church Say…

    Happy Born Day Nikki! You are so blessed with a wonderful husband, a beautiful daughter, family and friends, and strangers that love you. Just think, if you weren't born 30+(-2) years ago, a lot of ladies wouldn't be blessed with your wisdom and great knowledge of napptural hair. So, you are not only a blessing to others but others are blessed to have you. Today is a day of reflection. Smile and do what your heart desires. Nothing more, nothing less. (~_~) <3

  • Unknown says:

    Happy Birthday Nikki! You should definitely try to hit the spa or revel in a simple freedom like seeing a nice movie with the hubster and dinner is definitely in order, with a big fat cake!

    Since you already have Modern Family lined up, alongside the wine, do your hair however you've always wanted to do it, put on your summer dress, dance with Baby G and keep a smile on your face πŸ™‚

    Peace & Blessings, wishing you many more to come πŸ™‚

    Happy Birthday, Nikki! Today's my birthday too! As far as what you should do, whatever you darn well please. I firmly believe that birthdays are like private holidays. I'll spend my b-day evening at a baseball game (my tradition) with several ice cold beers and Italian sausages!

    Have a fantastic day!

    Seriously though, give hubs a great big hug and tell him how blessed you are to have him in your life.

    Call Moms and wish her happy birthday also!

    Spend the afternoon with a bestie.

    Smile (send love) to everyone you meet today.

    Acknowledge The Creator's handiwork in all the beauty you see in nature today. Stop and smell the flowers.

    Happy B'day from a 30+(+19) year old! ^-^
