It's my birthday too, yeah.

All my life I wanted to know someone who shared my birthday. There were always people one day after or the week before, but I never met anyone who was also born on May 28th. Then I got married. Dear gracious, would you believe I share my birthday with my father in law? Me neither. I try to block it from my mind as much as possible. But every year, there it is.

My hubby says the reason we don't get along is because of that shared birthday, we are just too much alike. I say our not getting along boils down to this: his father believes the whole world revolves around him.

Now where was I? Oh yeah, back to MY blog about ME and MY birthday! If ya'll remember I got a beautiful new camera back a few weeks ago, on Mother's Day. I thought I'd share some pictures I took with my new present out on "the farm" celebratin' the birthdays.

We call FIL Grandpa on the farm. He has about 5 acres, some of which have lovely fruit trees. And this weekend the citrus trees were getting lucky. Butterflies and bees were pollinating all over the place.
The only saving grace of having to head out there almost every Memorial Day (sometimes a girl just has a headache) is the peaches.

Look at them, all fuzzy and ripe, in bunches like grapes, there are so many of them. And know what? That is absolutely the only time to pick them. By the first of June they will be over ripe and falling off the trees. We brought home 2 bags, one of which went into a cobbler, happy birthday to me!

They are without a doubt the most delicious peaches I have ever had in my life. And so juicy you can not bite into them without juice running all down your chin.

Just look at these pictures taken 4 years ago of Brooke. I have equally as juicy pictures of Breanna the same day, but somehow it's not as cute of the messy 5 year old as it is of the "BABY". Yes that purplish juice all over her shirt is from the peach. See the look in her eye? That is her peach and I better only be taking a picture, cause she ain't sharin' it!So the point? I am older than dirt... um 38 years old today. And guess what I'm doing to celebrate? Getting my oil changed. Not even kidding! Such is the life of a mom!

Oh before you start feeling sorry for little ol' me, I suppose I should tell ya that I spent a large part of Sat. gettin my hair did, plus, Monday I got some alone time. And in addition to my camera I got some spiffy new brown and pink Reef flip flops, and $100 to spend at Kohls. But best of all my lovely SIL and hubby came over for the weekend and watched our girls while hubby and I went on a birthday date. We had yummy sushi and saw Iron Man. What more could a girl ask for than raw fish and Robert Downey Jr?

Happy Birthday!

She enjoys a peach just the way my Social Butterfly does--thoroughly!

I've known six people that share my bday and my husband has 4 ON OUR STREET--1 includes the same year. Freaky, huh?

Happy happy joy joy!

Hope the oil change includes some eye candy as a little present.

By the way, it is also the birthday of Ian Fleming & John Fogerty. But I know it's really only yours. :)

(I LOVE PEACHES. Now I am craving them something FIERCE, in fact I would say damn you but since it's your b-day, I won't)

Ah, just saw on The View that your favorite cast member, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, also shares your birthday. Another lovely person to celebrate with! Hope you are having a great one!

Happy Happy Birthday. I turned 28 again on the 20th :).

My father and I have birthdays just 3 days apart....both Taurus, butt heads like crazy and super stubborn. Probably some of the reasons we haven't spoken since 1998.

Happy Birthday lady! Your hair looks great! Sounds like you had a good weekend, you even got a date!! Hope your evening is quiet and restful!!! HA!!!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes!
I too saw it's Elizabeth Hasselbeck's birthday, couldn't be Joy's or Whoopi's could it? My hubby shares a birthday with the very perky Rachel Ray and hates her. So naturally he found it funny I share Hasselbeck's birthday. We are now referring to her as my Rachel Ray! HA!

Happy birthday to my favorite family stalker! You are so gosh dang old. And I'm one year older than you. So that makes me one year older than gosh dang old. I like you.

sooo,what camera did you get? Nice pics.

Awww I missed your birthday! I was anti computer as much as possible yesterday. Hope you had a great one.

Those peaches look fantastic. When I was a kid we'd always pick up a bushel on the way home from North Carolina on our summer vacations. My favorite part was when we'd stop for lunch or something and the car would get hot while we were in the restaurant. We'd go back out and open the car door and it would smell like warm peach pie in there. Delicious!
