Here's The Birthday Girl!

Happy birthday, Mom! Believe it or not, that's Mom on her first birthday. Doesn't she look like a boy? Ouch! Mom just smacked me on my butt for calling her a boy. Okay Mom, you look like a really cute boy. How's that?

For those of you who weren't following my blog at this time last year, you can read last year's post here. You'll learn a lot about Mom - probably more than you ever wanted to know. But there are still a few fun facts about Mom that I'm sure she won't mind if I share with you.

The Chicago blizzard of 1979 started on Mom's birthday. 16.5 inches of snow fell that day and by the time the blizzard was over there was over two feet of snow on the ground. Schools were closed for an entire week (the blizzard started on Saturday) and as Mom likes to remind me, this was the only time in her entire school history that school was closed due to snow.

Mom refuses to fly on her birthday. It's true. She so super superstitious about this that she has to work her vacations around the date. Why you ask, does Mom have this silly rule? She doesn't want her entrance and exit dates to be the same! How silly is that?

Dad proposed to Mom on her 30th birthday. He threw a surprise birthday party for her, invited 50 of her closest family and friends, then got down on one knee and proposed in front of everyone. Such pressure! Lucky for Dad, Mom said yes.

Mom is going to spend most of her birthday with me. She says she doesn't want anything for her birthday but I don't believe her. I bought her something special that I think she's going to love, but I can't tell you what it is because I haven't given it to her yet. Tonight, Dad is taking Mom and a bunch of friends out to celebrate at a Mexican restaurant. I hope Mom drinks a lot of margaritas so we can sleep in late tomorrow.

YAYY! Happy Birthday to your sweet momma!

I loved reading those stories about her past birthdays. Sounds like it's a very special day, for a very special lady!!!!

Be EXTRA good today, Stubby, ok?!


Stubby said...

Hi Pearly Poo! You don't think my momma is strange now do you? I do! She's a little off, to put it mildly, but I love her just the same.

I am being EXTRA good today, not that I'm not always extra good. Mom is happy today and that makes me happy.

Stubby xoxo

Happy Birthday to the Momma!

Stubby said...

Hi Stacy/Brutus/Miley! Thanks for stopping by. Please raise your paw if you think Mom looks like a boy in that picture. See, I'm not the only one that thinks so.

Stubby said...

Hi Pugsley & Lola! Mom says thanks for the pug hugs and kisses. One can never have too many of those, right?

Stubby said...

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! Mom has been celebrating all day long. I don't know what she's been doing but she hasn't been home very much today. And tonight Dad's taking her out to dinner. Sheesh! How about some Stubby time?

Stubby xoxo

Stubby said...

Hi dw! I haven't frosted the cake yet because Dad knows I'm going to make a total mess out of it. Maybe I should just let him handle the frosting, huh?

Mom is going to love this cake because it doesn't contain any calories. What a great gift, don't you think?

Hi Sequoia & Tuni! Mom says thanks for the birthday wishes. She has been treating herself to lots of goodies today.

We hope mom had a FABULOUS birthday!!! Did you follow the recipe for the cake that I sent you???

If you play your cards right and treat mom like a queen...there might be some Popeye's chicken in your future!

Happy Birthday to your Mom!!

Hope she had a good time drinking those margaritas. Mom says she love margaritas but usually she skips the margaritas and just goes straight for the tequila!!

Pugs & Kisses,

Happy Birthday to your mommy!! :)

I hope she had a great day and you guys treated her extra nice. :)

Stubby said...

Hey Salinger! I followed the recipe and the cake came out perfect. Mom loved it and I can't thank you enough.

I did treat Mom like a queen all day yesterday. She gave me lots of kisses and even mentioned something about Popeye's. You're a genius!

Stubby said...

Hi Yoda & Brutus! Your mom is hardcore! Straight tequila? Nothing good can come from that!

Mom told me that everyone was drinking margaritas last night. Mom had to try them all and she didn't feel that great afterwards. That will teach her to go to party without me!

Hi Lex! Mom had a great birthday and we did treat her right. She doesn't usually want to do anything for her birthday, so having a little party was so out of character. I think she might have liked it a little too much!

Happy Birthday. Loved visiting your site.

Stubby said...

Hi Debbie! Thanks for visiting my bloggie. I'm going to go check out yours tonight.

Mom had a great birthday but she spent today recovering. Maybe she had too much fun.

Stubby said...

Hi Riley & Star! I'm so glad you liked reading my posts about my mom. She is so lucky to be married to my dad, isn't she?

Mom got books for her birthday and she loves them. I don't get it because I don't read but whatever floats her boat.

Stubby xoxo
