I've been Faced!

You know, there are a lot of things to love about Facebook.

You can catch up with old friends, stay connected to everyone a little better, show off your family, enjoy others' pics, chat "live" while hanging out on the computer.

You can even be a better friend who actually "remembers" everyone's birthday and wishes them well thanks to Facebook's little friendly reminders on the sidebar.

Unless you are someone like me who neglects Facebook for days and misses those reminders. Or adds friends, but then neglects to send them a message or write on their wall for a long time. Or gets on Facebook and sees that someone's birthday is coming up, then gets easily distracted and forgets to come back and wish them well.

And then there is the guilt!

The guilt when so many sweet people take just a minute to wish you well on your birthday. Dear friends, blog friends, friends I haven't talked to in yeeears!

Dang the guilt!

It was so fun to read all the happy wishes and I am so grateful.

I vow to do better when it comes to "facing" other people!

As for my special day, it was pretty low key. Which was just fine with me this year.

Cards, calls, and cake were the only things on the agenda. Along with yummy home grilled steaks, baked potatoes, and salad.

You know I gotta save my energy for growing a little baby.

And for planning my birthday for next year!

It was a good day!

Happy (belated) birthday! I didn't realize our birthdays were so close together... Mine's on the 15th. :)

Happy belated Birthday! If I were on Facebook, i'd have tried to wish you well on your actual day!

Happy Birthday via your blog as well. I facebooked a b-day greeting a day early just in case I didn't have access to the computer the day of your actual birthday.
Hey, I love all the new sidebar stuff you've got going on. I've been thinking of doing something similar, but I never get around to doing it.

Apparently, I'm NOT a good facebook friend! For some reason I don't always look at that side of the screen - I often pop on then off. So, I missed it, and didn't say it there. So I'll say it here...HAPPY BIRTHDAY STACEY!
