It's a Great Day!

You may have heard me say this on the blog before, but I love birthdays! Even my own!

I decided to do a little Google search and see who else shared my birthday. I cannot believe the list of talented people born on October 21st!

Here is a list of ten:


Samuel Francis Smith, Clergyman and hymnist, wrote "My Country Tis of Thee"


Alfred Nobel, Swedish inventor and founder of the Nobel Prize


Dizzy Gillespie, American musician


Celia Cruz, Cuban singer; Considered the "Queen of Salsa"


Whitey Ford, Major League Baseball player


Judy Sheindlin, American judge and television host 


Benjamin Netanyahu, 9th Prime Minister of Israel


Rich Mullins, Christian musician


Carrie Fisher, American actress and writer


Darcie, Blogger and Friend

(Go on over and wish Darcie a happy day!)

In the spirit of birthdays and gift giving I need to give out an award that I have been holding onto for far too long.

Sweet Janel, over at Dandyliondayz awarded me with this:  

Janel, I love reading your blog and hope that someday we might meet face to face!

I can't remember how many people I am supposed to pass this off to, so I will go with three. I am passing this award onto meh of Biding My Time, because I think it will make her laugh, and we often do that together.

I also give this award to Blue Skies and Mama in High Heels. Because they are fun, homeschoolin' moms and I love to read their blogs!

If you happen to share a birthday with me today, Happy Birthday!  If not, I'm passing out cupcakes, Chocolate or Vanilla? 

Have a fantastic day!

Vanilla for me, please! Happy, happy birthday Kellie! I hope your day is filled with many sweet things--including cupcakes!

Oh man...I wanted to be the first to wish you a happy birthday and you beat me to the punch. I blame it on the east coast time advantage! Anyway, I hope you have a the happiest of birthdays too!

Michele said...

Happy, Happy Birthday Kellie!!! Girl, I hope you celebrate your birthday all week. I do mine!!! I love birthdays too! I hope your birthday is wonderful and that you get all your heart desires!

What an incredibly sweet person you are to be thinking of others and giving away things on your birthday!!! Thank you so much for my first bloggy award! I am so excited. I almost feel like I need to make a speech and take a bow:) Thanks also for thinking of me as a fun, homeschoolin' mom.

I think I may go and make either some cookies or brownies so that I can celebrate your birthday here in GA!!!

Kellie...Happy Birthday! What a great day - and I think October is the perfect birthday month because it is during the best season. Enjoy your day and do something to spoil yourself a little.

Chocolate, please! :)

Happiest Birthday my sweet friend, Kellie!

I hope your day is extra special!! And remember, Jesus thinks we're as special as we feel on our birthdays--everyday! He's so good!

I'll take one of each cupcake and then any leftovers, as well, okay?? It's been a ROUGH weekend/week around here...sugar helps.. :)

Happy, Happy, Birthday Kellie! Hope it was a great one! I'm heading over to wish Darcie the same right now! (How funny that two of my favorite bloggers share the same birthday!) :)

Happy Birthday dear blogging friend! Hope it was happy!

Blue Skies said...

Shame on me!! I thought about your birthday on Sunday. I thought about it again several times on Monday. And then completely forgot until this morning, a day AFTER your birthday. Please accept my belated but completely heartfelt wish for you to have a completely God-filled year!!! Love ya friend!!!!

happy, happy birthday to you and your mom :D

What fabulous photo's of birthday cakes on your last two posts! Makes me very much want to go bake something, like a coconut pound cake type thing! I made it the other day, thought of you, tried to figure out how to mail it to you, gave up and bought you a card. (: But know I was thinking of you. Hope your day was wonderful and I will call you later.

Oh, peedaddle. It's October 21st somewhere, still. Isn't it? Happy day after your birthday! I'm 364 days early! That's it!

HAPPY belated Birthday Kellie!!! It is never really belated; I too think it takes a good week to celebrate our birthdays properly. I also LOVE mine (er, ours-and Darcie's)! Thanks for the Birthday wish on HisGirlsBlog!

Your pot pie is the most beautiful pie I have EVER seen! I see that you love the seasons and colors too, as do I. And how fun that your mom's b'day is right next to yours! God is SO good, isn't He! I thank Him for granting us another year of. life! Bless Him - and bless YOU! HisGirlsMom aka Moomis

Happy belated birthday, Kellie! Hope it was a great day!!

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Thank you Kellie for your kind words! And I will have chocolate for sure!

I always say our birthdays should be celebrated for a week! Why not?

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Oh, how cool is it that your moms birthday is the day before yours? Did I read that right? You were her best birthday present ever!

Rae said...

I missed this post!! Happy, happy belated birthday!! What a great group of people to share a birthday with! I do hope you had some very yummy cupcakes like the ones pictured in this post!!!

jen said...

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!

But happy birthday!

Please tell me that I get a free pass, since I was busy celebrating with my daughter who was also born on October 21!?
