dream big


Okay so the April wall paper I made doesn't even have "April" anywhere on it.  Whatever. Enjoy.

I turn 37 tomorrow. I don't like the number 37. Not one bit.  I don't mind getting older, it's just that 37 is such an ugly number.  Not that I feel that strongly about numbers, but thrity-seven? Blah.

But I'm declaring April the month of April, as in me.  I'm gunna lose a few pounds, I just know it.  My head if filled to the brim with creative ideas.  April is the month to execute them.  I'm going to try to tell my children yes more often.  I'm going to stay on top of the laundry.  

I'm dreamin' big girls.

Maybe you are too?

Well, incase time gets away from me Happy Birthday Spark Sister!! And, girlfriend I am turning 44 and that # doesn't click with me, thinking I might jump straight into 45, LOL

I believe in celebrating all month so April for April sounds good to me ;) And by the way you look skinnier already ;)

Hugs from Conroe, TX!

Happy early birthday! Enjoy being 36 for one more day. Some day when we are old but cute grandma's we will look back at 37 and think - spring chicken~

I'm 47, and I hate that number too. There's something about the "seven," I think -- something dull and boring. The beginning of the "late."

I wish you a happy birthday, though, and luck with your birthday resolutions. I think you're pretty great as you are, though, so don't be too hard on yourself!

I am laughing right out loud here, at your humor and your age 37 and your hatred of the number. I just turned 50 but I find it incredibly shocking because I still feel the same as when I was, well, 30 years younger. I'll take 37, though. I liked 33, not that I have a number fetish or anything. I don't.

Happy Birthday, I turn 38 next month so I know how you feel! I think I might just have to dream big too, thanks for the encouragement!

Happy Belated birthday! I had to giggle a little reading your post. I thought I was the only one who hated turning a certain number because there was nothing neat or different about it. Well, I say to hell with the number, it's better than 73! ;) I absolutely love this wallpaper and am happy to say my iMac - all 27! beautiful inches of it - is sportin' this beauty! Thanks for the inspiration and for dreaming big. Love that.
