Wednesday Woo-Hoo: It's My Birthday!

Hey, hey, heeeeeyyyyyy! It's my birthday! And my family didn't forget this year! I'm old. Okay, old-ish. Okay, not really, but it's fun to make like all my problems are because I'm old. I posted this on my personal Facebook page today:

"I'm 43 today. Yup, these danged birthdays are definitely aging me!" I included this updated profile pic:
Flattering, eh? You know how you get up in the morning and look like dog butt? Well, this is Cindy Brown at first blush 5 a.m. It's actually usually much worse than that. Look, here's my pic from when I was 40.
Any of you who think it's easy getting to this every day:
Bite me. It takes work, practice, curling devices, decent clothes, accessories and make-up skills. Then voila! I'm beauteous. No pretenses here. I just know how to work it, given the right tools for success.

Now, on to other Woo-Hoos:


My Everyday Underwear Facebook page hit 100 likes! I'm going for 10,000 before I give anything away, so If you haven't "liked" the page, which does have different content than my blog, please do so at http://www.facebook.com/EverydayUnderwear.


I got another blog award. Well, sort of. It was a blanket award, but I'll take it because I think that Kelly Hashway, author of young adult and middle grade novels such as Touch of Death, would definitely bestow me with this award personally anyway because she knows I'm always being me. She has confirmed that I deserve this award, so I've staked my claim! The proof is in the pictures, people. I am definitely being me. Shield your eyes.

A fact about myself is that there is no way in a barrel of monkeys that I have the time to give you 18 facts about myself and answer 11 questions and pass it on to unlimited people, but I will definitely give a hearty shout-out to Michelle at Motley News and pass this award along to her for keeping it real. Love her!


I'm also giving Kelly Hashway the Don't Do a Damn Thing Award. She works too hard. You know the rules: Accept, Do Nothing, Take a nap, Kelly!


I have lots of things I could complain about this week, but I won't. I have hope that things will slow down for me and I'll have more time to write soon. It seems like all I have time for is my Woo-Hoos! Hang in there... the kids go back to school in two days ;0)

  8. I did not actually have a blast of a birthday, to be truthful. It was mediocre, at best, but regardless, I am thrilled to be alive yet another year. *sigh* I'm so tired (I have teens who aren't old enough to drive yet). I would love to guest blog. My next opportunity to do so would be in October. I'll touch base with you about it soon.

  9. It was okay, to be honest. I'm alive to blog some more and terrorize people with my bed head pics and that's the important part!

  18. Thank you! I like being busy and working hard though. It's fun for me. Still, I accept and I will do nothing tonight. :)


    And yes, you definitely deserve the Thank you for being you award. You are not afraid to be you and I love that. It's so refreshing. :)

    Happy birthday! I hope it's a great one.

  19. I've never said this before, but thank you for doing nothing. You deserve "nothing" and I hope you enjoy it! That totally sounds like a slam, but considering the award, it isn't! Ha ha!

  20. Oh and don't you know I just realized I have a short story to write. Can I do that first and then do nothing? Hmm, maybe I can do nothing tomorrow. Yes. I'll write the story tonight and do nothing tomorrow. It's a plan. :)
