It's not that I forgot about his birthday. Of course I didn't forget--I sent a gift and I called him at work and
I called him again during the evening. Maybe it just slipped my mind to have a special post about it. Maybe it just slipped my mind to post at all yesterday. Yep, yesterday was my dad's birthday. My handsome, smart, funny, understanding, realistic, disciplined, even-tempered, kind daddy turned 56 yesterday. I always know his age because he is 30 years older than I will be when I have my birthday. Get it? Well, not only did I get 1/2 of my amazingly good looks from him, I also got 1/2 (if not more) of my dorkiness from him. He's the good kind of dorky, alright! Sometimes I'll say something really, really dorky and gasp at the fact that something so dorky came out of my mouth. It is then that I think, that was totally something my dad would have said. The good kind of dorky runs in the family. Anyway, Happy Birthday, Dad. I can't wait to see you and Mom this weekend when you stop by on your "flight" down the Florida.
In other news, there is a sale at Ann Taylor Loft going on right now. Yesterday I had a meeting at our retirement community in Richmond (I work at a non-profit and do fund raising for our 4 communities and that is all I am going to say about that...). Coincidentally, a mall isn't too far away. Dangerous! I checked out the sale and ended up with this cute shirt for only $25. I'm hoping that I can wear it under my cute vest. It's sheer, but I think my vest will cover the appropriate (or shall I say inappropriate) areas. If it doesn't, I'll just wear it with a camisole underneath.
I probably, most likely, definitely won't look as good as this chick in it, but what do you think?
For the record, I plan on going back to Ann Taylor Loft when I have more than a 30 minute break to look around. Maybe Mom will want to go this weekend (wink).
