29 is officially postponed

I love these two little stinkers.
But they are both pretty sick. So this year my birthday is officially postponed. We voted unanimously to postpone Valentines day as well. I am drained. It has been a long week. There is no end in sight to this rotten cold. Such is life as a parent, I know.
But just because I am postponing does not mean you have to postpone my birthday...
For example - my mom and dad made me a yummy early birthday dinner today.
What can you do you ask. Well, maybe you can leave a comment. Maybe I can get to 29 comments for my 29th birthday. I have my doubts. Come on, prove me wrong!
Everyone always does that post on their blog. Asking all those blog lurkers and stalkers to out themselves. We all lurk! I know I am quite guilty of it.
But I have been too scared to do that post. Scared that no one will actually comment. I have run into a few people who tell me they look at my blog all the time. I had no idea. But it was so nice to know that someone else was looking. I will admit I was flattered and quite happy about it! So I think I finally have the courage to do it. I am asking everyone who looks at my little blog to let me know you are out there. And if you still aren't up to leaving a comment email me. I just want to know you are out there!
Okay, this is me doing it. This is me hitting publish post. In just a minute... Okay for real this time... Don't let me down fellow bloggers!

you already know I look at your blog - happy birthday! We've been sick with that same disgusting, never-leave-ever cold that you guys have had. It's horrible. We're STILL coughing. (this is not meant to discourage you, just to let you know you aren't alone in the sickness department!) Things will look up soon!

Selina said...

Yes, the kids are still in bed and I am lurking away!! But you already know I check out your blog on a regular basis - all those great tutorials and your cute kids...so have a Happy Birthday, and a Happy Postponed Birthday too :)

Kristin Ross said...

Suz said...

You know how much I love your guts and your talent, but I am going to be in this group of lurkers to comment anyway. I am excited to finally be crafting, thanks to you, your talent, and your help!

D. said...

Happy Birthday, hope the end is near for the sicknesses!!

Renee said...

Happy birthday. I stop by every once and a while, but don't think I've ever commented. My nephew was born on my 29th birthday. I gladly gave him the day and figure I never need to get another year older again. Make sense? Good luck with your comments!

rebecca said...

Happy Birthday!!! I hope ya'll are feeling better soon. :)

Brianne said...

Okay, so I am a blog stalker, but who isn't, right? I seriously can't believe how talented you are. Happy Birthday!!!

Melissa said...

Happy birthday!

I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago, but never commented. I admire the fact that you have 2 little ones AND still have the time to create and get things done! Hope you get the chance to celebrate your birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WHIT! We have been sick here too and it stinks, I cough and sneeze so hard that I have peed my pants like 50 times....I guess that comes with age and kids right, hopefully I am not the only 30yr old with bladder problems out there....hope you have a good day anyways.
By the way I always always read your blog and I have to admit I am green with envy about all the talent you posses.

Christal said...
