Another birthday whizzes by.....oh, did I forget to tell you? My birthday was Tuesday, March 4th! Yep, another birthday, I kept it secret. Well, secret in 'blogland'....but, not to family. Family treated me with lots of wonderful surprises! Not only did we celebrate with a deliciously wonderful birthday dinner at the Olive Garden, but sweet mother and sister treated me to a deliciously wonderful lunch as well! I'm truely spoiled. Dear sweet mother gave me a gift certificate to my favorite place...Home Depot! She knows me well. With spring fast approaching, she knows I want new plants and flowers. She also treated me to not one, but two beautiful new sweaters. Dear sweet sister gave me a gorgeous orchid and an ever so scrumptious gift certificate for a swedish massage at the local day spa! But, the big surprise was by sweet hubby and sweet daughter. They conspired together and surprised me with this...

Yep, that's right. An 80GB IPOD! I'm thrilled, I'm delighted....I'm in heaven. I have spent the last three days copying CD's. In addition to hubby and daughter conspiring...they included my dear, sweet sister-in-law. She bestowed upon me an ITune music certificate! I'm now proud to say that I have over 6.6 days of music on my wonderfully delightful new toy and I have only used about 5 GB! I will never, never be without music again. I was also able to download Oprah's first podcast for the book 'The New Earth'. It's wonderful! Now I can download each and every Monday night podcast for each of the ten courses she is sharing.

I promptly ran to my local Targe' boutique and purchased a handsome leather cover for it! PINK, of course!


Happy Birthday to me! By the way...should I mention it's #56! Gezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, that just sounds old!

Happy Happy Birthday to you Alice. We hare a two i-pod home and let me tell you, they are the most wonderful devices next to sliced bread. : ) You will so love your new i-pod. The Olive Garden is one of my very favorite places...I love their soups, salads and bread sticks. I could make a meal of just that. So happy belated birthday to you..I hope your year is filled with health, happiness and success.

Happy Birthday, Alice,
You are celebrating your "Birthday Week", right? In our family, I always push for a week long celebration, not just one day. I am glad that your day was so special.

Happy Birthday! So glad you had a great time. Age means nothing, you will think 56 is a babe when you are 80! Just enjoy life:>)

Happy Birthday! You should have told us sooner, you tricky girl! iPOD hint-if you have little ones, download their favorite cartoons and whip it out next time you are out to dinner-it gives you an extra 20 minutes to eat in peace!
