Another Anniversary of My 29th Birthday.

Just celebrated yet another anniversary of my 29th birthday.  That was the year I stopped saying my age out loud, the year we added the question mark candles onto my birthday cake, the year I really started to hate birthdays and getting older.

But year after year, they keep coming around.  My father tries to tell me it's a good thing I am around to celebrate another year.  And I know he's right. 

The boys, however, love to celebrate my day.  They picked out a birthday cake for me, surprised me with flowers and played "Happy Birthday" for me on the piano.  Friends and family emailed and called to wish me a nice day as well.  I have to admit, it was a good day.

Wine made it even better.   

In honor of my birthday, my husband chose this week's "Cheap Wine with a Pretty Label".

Cupcake is a very nice Merlot bottled by Cupcake Vineyards.  It falls under my $10.00 maximum by one cent at $9.99.  I love the label--pretty and girly and swirly.  I love the website as well, fresh and clean.  But most of all, I love their tagline: "Live Deliciously".  And I think that's the way I am going to enter this next year of my life--by living deliciously.  

I'll let you know how that works out.



  1. Happy Birthday! And listen to your father. He knows what he's saying. One more thing. When you hit your mid-40's, proudly proclaim how old you are. Take my word for it. It's not that bad. :)

  2. Happy birthday!! Mine was last weekend, and it was my first 29th :) The funny thing is that how I would tell people, because next year will be my 29th as well!

  3. Happy Birthday!!!
    That wine is so cute.
    Girl, I have been celebrating the anniversary of my 29th bday for awhile now, I am right there with ya! hahaha.

  4. Happy birthday...Your wine bottle looks good. Being a wine lover, I enjoyed going through your blog. keep it up the good work. Cheers :) Beth
