WOYWW #219- The Birthday Edition

Happy Wednesday everyone! An especially Happy Wednesday for me & Beloved Hubby- todays our Birthday! Yes, we have the same birthday. How cool is that?
 Actually, a lot of birthdays this month-we have a whole Pride of Leos in our family. I counted them up while I was making cards- 11 close family, and no less than 7 friends!You couldn't fit that much ego in one room, lol. Some special ones this year too- Beloved Hubby is 40, a niece is 21, grandson Mortimer is 13 and a friend is 50.
Which is why my desk contains these:
The  Leo Hall of Fame is: Me & Beloved Hubby,my Eldest son, Ant, his son Mort, My middle sons wife and my Daughter. One of Beloved Hubbys Brothers, and one Sister. His niece, my nephew and my other nephews wife. Dread to think how many more I'd find if I widened the net. I'll blog Beloved Hubbys card tomorrow, and the others over the next week, as they've been handed out. So we will have been to work, and doing the card & pressie swap when we get home, before bed.We're going out for a Birthday meal on Friday night, and the guy who's 50 is having a party on Saturday night, as not only is he 50 this week, his two sons are 18 & 21! So thats my Show & Tell for our Delightful Headmistress Julia, over at The Stamping Ground- come and join the fun of a world wide snoop at the coolest, most inspiring craft desks you will ever find, not to mention the best group of blogging pals anyone could wish to be part of.

Happy Birthdays Shaz, Douglas and assorted friends!! As a fellow Leo, may I say that you are the nicest bunch of people have had chance to meet. No wonder we got on so well when you came for the crop! Have fun at the various celebrations :-)
Hugs, LLJ 60 xx

It IS SO COOL to share your birthdays! (It's my Dad's today, too!) I can't imagine a couple with less Ego between you, you're both incredibly modest. Happy happy birthdays! Your desk looks great, loving the muddle of numbers..

Uniflame said...

You must have been so busy, making all those b-day cards! I notice too that there are a lot of b-days amongst my friends. And mine is on the 25th, which makes me a virgo, barely. Uniflame - 75

Happy, happy birthday to you and your hubby. What fun to have both on the same day. Loved the idea of room full of egos. I conjured up an image that was beyond belief (grin). Happy WOYWW from #1.

Happy birthday to you both. Trust you are having a great day - even if you DID have to go out to work...We have spent the day with our daughter - 39 today, and her father in law - 78 today! Our younger daughter made it to 37 less than two weeks ago, and two friends celebrate their 60something birthdays on 31st!! Popular month!!!
Thanks for visiting.

MaggieC said...

A rather belated Happy Birthday to both of you, and sorry the cards will be a bit late this year. I know you will understand. Sadly, Shaz, I do have to do the post office run this time as it involves a change of ownership and all those extra complications. After typing this I shall be off to Staples to replace this keyboard before I have a total meltdown with it. Sometimes it works and sometimes I have to hit it hard. I did change the batteries too but that made no difference. xx Maggie #very high number this week (cannot remember and too idle tonight to check)

Cazzy said...

Happy Birthday to both of you, how neat! Happy WOYWW too!

I hope you have a brilliant meal, and what a lot of special birthdays!

Shoshi said...

Happy birthday to you both, and to you all, Shaz! How amazing to have the same birthday as your hubby.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. Yes, good lighting is essential! As for the colitis, I hesitate to speak too soon, but I really do think the meds are starting to work already, and the doc said I wouldn't see a difference for 2-4 weeks!

I've been experiencing problems posting comments on blogger so I hope this gets through OK.

Happy belated WOYWW,
