29 Years.

On this day, 29 years ago, my poor, dear mother was pushing an IV stand around a military hospital in Germany.  She definitely had a rough night.

So, my birthday, thus far:

Slept late.

Ate another pumpkin bagel.

Walked the dogs.

Renewed my car tag.

Rode the pony - COULD NOT STOP GRINNING.  Fantastic trot work, great little jump session, canter in the meadow and a nice, monster-sized, back-swishing walk.

Met husband for lunch.  The food took so long that he had to leave before it arrived.

Home to relax.

Husband surprised me with tickets to see Muse in February.

Photoshoot with a professional, JAB, for breast cancer awareness.  Yes - this means what you think it means.

Now, home to relax until the hubs gets off work.  Then it's Jazz'd and drinks at Jen's.

Photos, in no particular order:
