Happy Birthday to my daughter

My baby girl is 12 years old today.  Where does the time go. I was going to take her and her friend swimming today at my sister in laws but it is a little cool today. We might go to the animal shelter and pick out a dog. My hubby said why did you promise her a dog for her birthday. I said because we have been wanting an animal since we moved here 21 months ago. We went to a few shelters last year but we didn't see any small dogs. My hubby does not want a big dog. I wouldn't mind because I love big dogs. My daughter would like a Lab or Golden Retreiver.  I think I would get a lot more walking in if I had a dog.  Tomorrow is the day we are really going to celebrate. We are going into Chicago to get our hair done and then out to a Mexican restaurant. My daughter is bringing one of her friends.  They both want to get their eyebrows done. My mother in law is going with us. I can't wait. I haven't had my hair done since Jan. and I need it bad.

I am doing pretty good with my eating. The last 2 days I have been struggling. I am up 1 lb. I had way too much steak the other day and a few to many cookies the last 2 days. I am back on track today.

I just made my reservations to Tennessee. I have been undecided if I wanted to go or not. I mean I wanted to go but was thinking twice about the money. I thought I would be able to get it cheaper this Tuesday but it was the same. I talked with hubby yesterday and he said go, just go. I think he wants the house to himself for 2 weeks. Sometimes you just need a break from one another. My hubby doesn't get vacation until November I think. I am not sure what he will want to do then. My sister lives in a small town called Ashland City. I just love it there. I can't wait until June 24th. Last year was the first year that I didn't spend the 4th of July with her. I would go visit her every year around that time.

Well, it is about that time for me to get dressed. My daughter is still sleeping and I need to jump in the shower and then make her birthday cake.

Again, I want to wish my  girl a . I love you so much.

Happy Birthday Wishes to your baby girl!
A dog from the shelter sounds like a great idea....I like the medium size dogs, because those lil shits just seem to get ill easier.
I know y'all are gonna have a blast with girls day tomorrow....enjoy!
