Happy Birthday, Happy Born day, Happy Earth Strong TO ME!

Sorry Dee I had to cut you out :) 
Instead of just telling you guys how awesome and wise I am on this my 37th birthday (You know it's true), I thought I'd share some of my birthday traditions, saying and must do/haves on this day a.k.a "The day an angel graced the earth! "

Favorite quote: 
When asked what gift he wanted for his birthday, the yogi replied:  "I wish no gifts, only presence."  ~Author Unknown

Birthday Breakfast: 
Tea and Pain au chocolate. 

Favorite response to how old I actually am: 
You need to stop lying and show me some i.d. (what can I say good black don't crack, sorry my vanilla hued folks). 

Must Do:

  • Get eyebrows done by Anastasia (costly yes, but damn it it's my BIRTHDAY)
  • Listen to my birthday mix which includes only Bill Withers, Beres Hammond and Robert Nesta Marley! Nothing but the best for me! 
  • Speak to my husband at midnight. He always sings me a song, today it was "I want to spend the night" 
  • Take a picture of the newspaper headline. This will make it easier for CJ to give me the Cosby-eque birthday party at 60. 
Must haves: 
  • Phone call from my mom asking me how it feels to be (insert age). nothing makes me giggle like that silly conversation. 
  • Calls from both of my sisters and my homies Dee and GG. Always the funniest, always the best! 
  • In the last 5 years a dance with CJ. He loves it, though he often ends up break dancing . Go figure. 
So that's it. I'm 37 and I feel awesome. I am at a place in my life where there aren't many things I want for or need. I have a family that loves and supports me. A husband and child that adore me as I do them and friends that make the worst day better.
