Well, Happy Birthday to US! Welcome back to another installment of we’re getting older, and it makes us feel better when we announce it to thousands of people. Sarah aka Thrifty Decor Chick has become one of my dearest and closest friends, so it’s no surprise that we share the same birthday. We also tend to share the same thoughts and feelings, but that might be for another blog post.
Speaking of sharing, if she were truly my best friend, she would come paint my bedroom this same color…
and she would build this fireplace for me (drool).
Truth be told, she would probably do both. She’s just that wonderful. So while we contemplate getting another year old, and my husband rushes out to find me a birthday present (why shop early?), we’ve got our annual quiz for you! Social media has probably hinted some of these to you, so I’ll bet you’ll do better on these than you think. If it makes you feel better, my mom missed three of mine last year. My mom. 🙂
So here’s the deal. Take the quiz here, then head to Sarah’s to take the other half of the quiz. Once you find out your score, leave it in the comments on her blog. That will count as your entry. One lucky winner will receive $100 gift card to Target! Yahoo! It’s our birthday, and you’re receiving the gift! We’re good people. Good luck!

Oh, Chris. When we all wished you happy birthday last year, none of us dreamed what your year would hold in store. My friend, I hope that you’ll never face another challenge as difficult as the one you’ve faced this past year. But I hope that all the good that came of it will linger and linger. I hope the support you’ve received, the love you’ve given and been given, the appreciation you’ve felt for life and love and friendship will tarry with you for all your days. Here’s a birthday toast to you–may this next year of your life be the best ever!
Here’s a little Robert Browning for your special day:
Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life, for which the first was made:
Our times are in His hand
Who saith “A whole I planned,
Youth shows but half; trust God: see all, nor be afraid!”
Bless you today and every day, sweet lady.
I got 40% on your quiz and 60% on Sarah’s. Have a great birthday girlies!

7 out of 10! Sarah, you don’t play an instrument and your husband is band director/composer?? Didn’t know that! Or, that you auditioned for Wof F. Chris, I would guess that you would always have matches of your herringbone socks, but I was WRONG. 🙂 Happy birthday!!!
I always do terribly on these quizzes each year, and I know you BOTH pretty darn well! Happy Birthday beautiful friend and cheers to good health and many rich blessings this next year!
