31 Flavors, 31 Years

The number 31 is only famous for Baskin Robin’s 31 flavors.  Well today, I turned 31 and I did get an Oreo Cookie ice cream cake from Baskin Robins, so I guess the number works. 

I was born July 23, 1977, to Danny Ray and Deborah Jane Garrison in the Owensboro-Daviess County Mercy Hospital at 4:44 AM.  I spent the first seven days of my life in the NICU because I was a premie.  I weighed 4 lbs at birth.  2 lbs was my hair.  I literally had hair in my eyes when I was born.  They gave me a snip in the hospital for my baby picture.  They said I looked like the Incredible Hulk. 

Here were my B-Day highlights. 

  • Got up and Jennifer made blueberry muffins for breakfast.  Yum!!
  • Rode bikes outside with Isaac.
  • Got “limited basic cable” from Joe, the cable guy.  We now have 23 channels.  The most we have had in over two years.
  • Took a nice nap on the couch.
  • Drove to E-town (Elizabethtown for those not from KY) for my birthday dinner and shopping spree.
  • Ate at Chic-Fil-a, my absolute favorite fastfood restaurant.  Two Chic-Fil-A sandwiches and some waffle fries.  Tasty.
  • Got some new glasses with some trendy frames.  Trying to look hip as a new prof.
  • Spent two gifts cards at HOME DEPOT.  Tools and house stuff.  Now as homeowners, it is very fun to shop for Do-It-Yourself projects.
  • Got some St. Arbucks.  Cafe Mocha for me.
  • Got a new cellphone number since our NKY number was long distance.
  • On the way home, my son sang me “Happy Birthday” several times and I loved every minute of it.

All in all, a great 31st birthday.

  1. I absolutely love reading your blog. It makes me smile each time. Glad to know your b-day was swell. I’m a little jealous about the Chic-fil-A meal. Hug Jennifer for me and post a pic with the new glasses. You are already missed.
