Photo Friday: hey girl

I was greeted with these signs at my desk this morning :)



For my "birthday lunch" they suggested going to some garage sales. Ummmm, yes please! 

We each got some great stuff, but even better than great stuff was being mistaken as the MOM of my co-worker. For reals!! Some guy thought that Kaitlin, my 24ish-year-old co-worker was my daughter. I mean, I suppose I could've had a kid when I was 7 YEARS OLD, but really? Really? You mistake me for her mom? The first thing you assume is that we are mother/daughter? Not sisters!?! Not friends? Not co-workers? Not cousins? Mother/daughter!!!?  

Wow. Happy birthday to me. 

Ryan, get me those chocolates!

    1. I'd like to blame it on him being old but he was in his 50s. WOuld've been nice if he at least told me how young I look for having a 24-year-old!!

  3. When I was 40 I had to have a hysterectomy. One of my best friends was there at the hospital helping me one day, and the nurse asked if she was my MOM!! She had a fit! I thought it was a riot!! I sent her a Mother's Day card that year!!! I am so mean!
    That guy probably didn't have his glasses on!!!
    Happy Belated Birthday!!!

  4. Oh yeah...the day I turned 30, I was at Target trying on sandals. Two 18-year olds walked by me and said "hey, my MOM has those exact sandals!" I'm still not over it!

    Found your blog on Not just a housewife...and I love it. :) Another yard saler, yeah!!!
