Today, on a very special 12 of 12, it’s Sappy Chick’s birthday! Join our heroine as she travels around the Upstate and deals with completing her 35th year!
9:30 am, Kitchen: The birthday breakfast… Anyone want an inflatable Shrek boogie board?
9:30 am, Kitchen: Loki looking very introspective this morning.
9:30 am, Foyer: And Domino is just tuckered out from the earlier playtime with Loki.
9:40 am, Kitchen: This is Mom-in-Law’s new kitten, Ozzy. Cinlach found him last Monday at his grandparents’ house. He must be getting the rep as a sucker among all the strays in their neighborhood.
10:40, Dining Room: My mom’s is coming to pick me up for lunch with my grandmother and two aunts — a Mother’s Day tradition. Mom is going to the beach next weekend with the women from her office, so I’ve collected a stack of suggested viewing for them.
2:00 pm-ish, Belk: We’ve had lunch, and now we’re shopping. Apparently, they’ve found a whole case of earrings missing from the ’80s, because these are just…. da-yum.
2:45 pm, Mom’s Car: Mom asks me to look in the glove compartment and hand her the pair of sunglasses that are less dark. So I open the compartment and ask “Which one?” There are five — FIVE! — pairs of sunglasses in here. And that doesn’t count the pair sitting on her nose. So I told her, “That’s it. You’re going in my 12 of 12.”
5:45 pm, Just Outside of Subdivision: We’re on our way to dinner, and I wanted to show you guys these oak trees that these people stripped of all branches. They looked naked for months, and now the little new branches that are sprouting make the trees look like they’re fuzzy.
5:55 pm, O’Charley’s: Here we are for dinner. I had the best dessert — Creme Brulee Cheesecake. It was divine! My brother, his wife, and his stepdaughters joined us, and they gave me a set of four martini glasses (since they know I love my cosmos).
7:40 pm, Golden Park: I’m late to my own birthday party… good grief! We had another bowling party, but we included my friend J from the office since her birthday is Wednesday.
9:35 pm, Bowling Alley: Me and J, the birthday girls. Look at the shine on my forehead! And I should have taken my glasses off.
9:45 pm, Bowling Alley: My step nieces have tuckered out. They’ll get up to bowl at this point but then go lay back down when they’re done.
