House Party Blog Hop ~ Birthday party at my house!!!

When my blog friend Rinda suggested we do a House Party Blog Hop in May, I immediately knew the theme that I would use to decorate my house. You see, May is my birth-month so I went with a birthday theme.
.
Little did I know that the date she would randomly select would actually fall on my birthday. Yes, today [May 1] is my birthday. [insert happy dance here!]

I have never been shy about telling people it's my birthday. I'll tell the grocery store clerk, the patients who come into the office where I work, random people I don't know - "It's my birthday today!!!"

So, come on over to my house and have a glass of champagne and a cupcake!

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!


The photo on my house is the first picture ever taken of me ~ May 1, 1961.


A big thanks to Rinda for organizing this soiree! We signed up, she sent us a house kit, organized the order of the blog hop, and made it a fun day for all of us! Now, head on over to Karen's blog - your next stop on this blog hop - and leave her some love! From there you can continue your journey around the planet, as this House Party Blog Hop includes blog friends from all over the world.
.
If for some reason you should get lost along the way, you can visit Rinda's blog for a complete list (and links) of all the blogs participating.

Love your birthday house! I was born on March 2, 1961! So you're almost exactly two months younger than me! And my son will be turning 15 on May 2! DD's birthday is May 31 and both my parents were born in May, so I agree it's a great birthday month. Hope you're enjoying your get away and get a chance to visit the houses when you return!
Thanks for joining the party,
Rinda

Belated Happy Birthday Deb !
It is my birthday month too, gosh we seem to have a few things in common. Only 11 more days to my birthday, I have a countdown clock on my desktop so I guess I am just the same about letting people know about my birthday :)

Loved your house, and my BD is 5/4, so when I got all of my house comments it was another gift! Loved the cupcake, so cleaver all of it. cindy @ snoutkiss.com
