Birthday 44 - MDSM106

So, my birthday was yesterday! As I am an identical twin... my sister, Debbie shares this special day with me.  I miss those special years of celebrating that day together.

And YES! The title is correct - I am 44! I am forever reminded of that Ickey Woods TV commercial -- where he's in the deli and they call number 44.... and he shouts "whoo number 44, that's me!"  <---Well, that's me! lol!

My husband brought me tulips and we tried a new bakery (Nothing Bundt Cakes). Wow! They were delicious.  We had the Carrot Cake and the White Chocolate Raspberry -- both had cream cheese frosting. YUM!

I used the sketch found on the MDS Monday Blog.  Thanks Beth! You may view the sketch challenge here:

Oh Wait, here's the sketch:

I realize after I created it that I chose spring-like colors.  For those that remember... the previous MDS Monday Challenge and sketch called for a spring page...and I didn't follow that.  Well... I must have felt guilty...so here's my spring page Anita! LOL!
