Do people read their own blogs?

I'm curious to see how long it will take Joanne to realize that I've hijacked her blog in order to tell the DOC that today is her birthday...

The 2011 mother-of-the-year didn't have a great start this morning.
I (Fred) got locked out of my car at 6:30 in the morning while 45 minutes away from home and trying to get her the best cake in the world (as a surprise).
I got the cake but I also got home at 9:15 (instead of 7:15 so I could get the kids ready and she could sleep in - I always take the day off work on her birthday).

Her day should get better after a 4-hour spa treatment and with the arrival of her mom this afternoon.

Happy birthday to the best mom in the world!

Lucky husband


  1. feliz aniversário Joanne! I feel so fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to get to know you and your wonderful family! Many blessings being sent your way from Ohio today and everyday!

  2. This is very sweet of Fred . . . . my husband will hear of this and be shameful of his own lack of brillance.

    A spa day?!?!?!?!?!?!

    And, I want a photo of the cake that took away your free morning. ;)
