Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday, Cuteheads! Not the blog's birthday, my actual birthday! Thirty two years ago today, the world became a little more fabulous.

Never in a million years (OK, never in 32 years) would I have thought that I'd be where I am today. Even just five years ago, I wouldn't have guessed it. And I wouldn't change anything for the world.

Here I am as a little girl, cute curls and all!

As you can see, I was quite the looker... even as a baby! Check out my hot two-piece suit!
And now, many years (and many bikinis) later, here I am today...

The family.
I am the mother of two healthy and adorable (and furry) boys. I have met tons of amazing people and am proud to be part of such a great animal-loving community. I've started some amazing projects I'm so proud of. I have more shoes than I care to admit, I live where many people vacation and have so much more to look forward to and aspire to!

This hangs in my office and I friggin' love it!
Thanks to all of you for being my friends! Thanks for all the support, love, compassion and for making every day brighter for me. I look forward to reading your comments here and your messages on the Facebook page and on Twitter all the time. It's like having one, big, awesome extended family.

So thanks for coming by to celebrate! Now on to the party! Pimp is pouring, so just let him know what you'd like to drink. Open bar! ;)

My specialties are niptinis and meowgaritas, but you can have anything you like!

  18. Happy Birthday, Dorian. I don't know you personally, but I feel as though I do and I sooooo appreciate the Cute to make my day start off great!  I wish the whole world was required to see your post each morning - It would help them to remember the  important things in life.  You should be very proud of what you are doing - one day at a time

    Have a wonderful, wonderful day!  And please keep the Cutes coming.  I would be lost without them.

    I'll have a Moo-tini please.  Perhaps Pimp can talk to his brother to figure how to make that! :-)
