The candles are blown out.

Thank you to those who wished me a happy birthday. 37. Wow.

Today we had a 'dual' family celebration for both my birthday and allison's, which is on the 18th. It ended up being all about her - she got the cake, the song, the candles, but who needs a birthday party at age 37? She's 4 and she had a great family birthday party. (I didn't get a card from the hubby nor my kids though. I'm bummed out about that. My friends were great though. Lots of texts and cards came in the mail, so that all made me happy!)

I saw the movie "funny people" tonight. Long movie, but good. I liked it. It didn't have a clear storyline all the way through, until I saw the end which pulled it all together. What I thought the movie was about was not what it was really about. Good movie though, so I'll thumbs-up it.

The red sox lost again today - that's 10 years of losses on my birthday. How do I know this? Ben Affleck and myself share the same birthday, including year. And Baseball Tonight on ESPN kept talking about the fact the sox haven't won on Ben's birthday for 10 years. Weird. Not weird they haven't won - they're the sox for goodness sake. You aren't a true red sox fan unless you are used to losing. All. The. Time. Well, when it counts. (I can't believe we actually have 'fair weather fans' now. Incredible!) But weird espn were all about reporting the aspect of wins/losses on Ben Affleck's birthday. Why his birthday? There is a sox fan born everyday of the year, yet we hear all about Ben's curse of August 15th.

Happy Birthday Nancy! I FB happy birthday'ed you. Aww and happy birthday to lil miss Allie too. :)

August is SUCH a popular month for birthdays!!! Every year I get invited to more birthday celebrations (Mostly for the kids but adults as well) than I can possibly attend, so I try and 'rotate.' My birthday month seems to be very popular as well, November - I know a ton of people born on my actual birthday as well, and in fact, I believe your hubby shares the same date as me, if my blog reading memory serves me correctly.

Sucks about the Sox and your birthday... but hey at least that last Sox/Yanks series of last week didn't fall on your birthday, that would have been a double ouch! :) Sorry, couldn't resist - it was quite a weekend out here at home!! OK, OK I'll stop now... maybe I'm just trying to secretly lure schnarky Nancy back out ;)

Well happy birthday once again and hope this year is a great one!

Happy belated birthday!

Suzy said...

Glad you had a good birthday, minus the Sox loosing.

Elana Kahn said...

Ooooh Happy Birthday!! So we have to get the Red Sox a win next year for your b-day. Maybe you should come to Boston to cheer them on?? ;-)

Sarah R said...

Happy birthday! :)

I am a Brewers fan, and we all know they have had a terrible losing streak. They won the last 2 games, so hopefully they can win today to sweep it. As long as you're not a Yankees fan, you're cool in my husband's book.

Sara said...

I didn't realize it was your birthday! I'm sorry I missed it!

Happy Birthday Nancy!

jenn said...

Happy birthday to Miss Allie too! I don't mind not having a party, but the no card thing would really bug me too. Then again- I didn't even get a card for my very first ever mother's day. what- me, bitter? never!

Coming from someone who lives with the countries biggest choke artists -in every sport!- I feel ya! (although I was raised in ny- so I can't say that I'm a philly sports fan period!)

Robin said...

HB Nancy! Hope you had a good day, minus the sox losing.

That is weird about Ben Afleck's birthday. Is he a huge fan or something? It makes you wonder how they would make the connection.

Kelly said...

Happy Birthday!!! Your hubby is a shit for not getting you anything...he needs his butt kicked! That's just wrong. Go out and buy yourself somthing fabulous and expensive and tell him you bought it ~from him~ since he dropped the ball. I did this to Lance several years ago and he's never forgotten a birthday or holiday since!!! ;)

Lisa said...

Sorry I missed your birthday Nancy. Happy belated birthday!

Sucks that the kids forgot to make you a card. Hopefully your husband has done something special for you since he forgot to get you a card.

I hope your birthday is the start of a new leaf turning over for you. I hope this year brings lots of love (which I am sure it will) and happiness.

Happy Birthday!!

We saw Funny People too yesterday. It was very long but I do like how the story line came all together at the end.

Happy Belated Birthday! I'm sorry that you didn't get a card from your dh/kids

Allison shares a birthday with my nephew! And his mother, my sister! August 18 is clearly a good day to give birth.

Sorry the fam let you down on your birthday. I try to not celebrate mine, but no one will abide by my wishes. Fortunately, my mom and sister took over the birthday torture, and my husband forgot all about making me go out to dinner.

Happy Birthday!

Poltzie said...

maybe it's your curse too J/K! Happy Birthday Nancy!!

Happy Birthday !!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! :)

Happy birthday to you and to Allie! Sounds like a great celebration!

Have a great Sunday!
*HUGS*

Happy 37th!

Yeah, I'm not sure what to do for the old 37 this year. It falls on Cailin's 7 month birthday so maybe we'll celebrate that despite how silly it sounds.

Ahhh yes. I can relate to the baseball part. We are a Cubs family so we can relate to long running days of NOT winning. Maybe THIS will be the year they win the world series since we introduced a new Cubby fan to the world with Cailin. Uhhhhh. One can dream right?

Lavender Luz said...

Happy day-after birthday.

Wish I could give you a RedSox win, all wrapped up in a bow.

And STOP with the wow after the 37. You don't get to do that until it's 137.

Kirsten said...

Today I am a loser because I am late...Happy belated Birthday!!!!

May it be the best one yet with many wonderful things to come :)

katie said...

Omg I missed this. For the first time since we met I missed it! And Allies too! I'm just going to put on my self centered hat of shame now. I'm so out of the loop these days. =/

Anyways hun I do wish you the best of birthdays and I swear I better look half as kick ass as you at 37. Honestly.

Julie said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

We have the same birthday. That is so awesome.

emilythehopeless said...

sorry, i suck.. happy birthday! :)

KimboSue said...

Guess I suck as much as hubby....Happy Belated anyway.

Dr. Grumbles said...

Cool, we not only kids with close birthdays, but our birthdays are also close. Mine is today. I am 34.

Happy belated birthday!

No big celebrations for me, either. On birthdays like this, just another day at work, I am all about treating myself to whatever the flip I want when I get out.

Tara said...

Well happy birthday to you!

Emily at Wishwaithopepray had her baby on your day, too!

Birdee said...

Happy belated birthday, you know I was thinking about you, just couldnt get on to say so.

JamieD said...

Happy Birthday, Nancy!

Whenever I watch ESPN with Hubby, I am alway surprised at the stats they throw out. I mean, who knows all that stuff? Who ~wants~ to know? Even with the internet, I am always surprised.

Peeveme said...

Call me crazy but a love Ben. Glad you are having fun. Sorry your DH didn't come through. What the hell was he thinking?

Thanks for you advise about induction. I am leaning toward breaking of the waters before Pitcone...but they seem to like to start the Pit then break waters once contrx have started. So we'll see how I feel and how good I am at negotiating with the big white coats.

Io said...

Well happy birthday except for the whole Sox losing thing...

Louise said...

Happy belated Birthday !

Kaci said...

Happy Belated Birthday to you & little Miss Allison! :)
