  1. Happy birthday to you! It is a gift to celebrate your day.

    Your list is wonderful. I enjoyed it greatly. Some of it was quite funny, and Prince is one of my absolute favorites, too. In fact, his movie _Purple Rain_ is the soundtrack of my senior year in high school. Needless to say, I’m older than you. 🙂

    Have a very happy and blessed day.

  2. DAMN! I forgot that my original thought was that this reminded me of _Because of Winn-Dixie_ where Opal asks her dad for 10 things about her mom for her birthday.

  3. This was really fun to read. A very good way to get a little glimpse inside of you. I also used to dream about having a girl and would pick out names. Where is your tattoo and why do you wish you wouldn’t have gotten it?

  4. Happy Birthday! It was really fun reading about you!

    I was (am) a huge Prince fan! Went to two of his Purple rain concerts my senior year in college, one of them I had won a backstage pass for, which was so totally awesome that I still cannot believe to this day I was that lucky. ( so yes….giving away my age as well!)

    Peace and joy to you in the coming year

  5. Happy Birthday to you…Happy Birthday to you…Happy Birthday, dear Morocco, Happy Birthday to you!!!!! Now make a wish 🙂

    Ya!! You know what they say about January birthday girls – they are super special 🙂

    I hope you have a good one.

  6. Happy Birthday dear girl!!! I wish you so many, many things for your 31st year! I never realized how much we have in common.


  7. Thanks for all the well wishes!

    Joy, my tattoo is of a tiny butterfly on my hip. I don’t know, but the older I get, the more conservative I become.

    Kelly, I have also been to two Prince concerts. In fact, I came across the stubs yesterday.

    Suzanne, I have read “Because of Winn-Dixie” when Nicholas read it last year, and I remember Opal’s list!

  8. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRIEND!!!! What a fun list! I have a tatoo as well. Mine’s a sun and moon on my ankle. I think I am getting more conservative as well, but I still love my tatoo. 🙂

    Hope you enjoyed your day!!!
