Na, na, na, na, na - You say it's your birthday!


Okay, so here's the deal...

I have met some amazing people over the past year via this blog and others. However, there is a group of gals that have gone above and beyond the casual relationships ordinarily established on my blog and others. These women are my friends and my prayer warriors. As I sit and write this post, emails are flying fast and furious as we join to lift up another friend in prayer. I will unabashedly say that there's not much I wouldn't do for them, and I love them dearly. One of those women happens to be celebrating a birthday today. For a bit more background on this little posse, you can check out Annie's post here.

Several months ago, I embarked on a ridiculously overambitious project of assigning fictional characters to blogger friends of mine. I really should update that...(But I digress...) Here's what I wrote about Candy:

Candace (Candy) from Steele the Day as Phoebe Bouffet from "Friends"

So it seems that Candy is a bit of a health nut -- kind of a granola girl. (Just like me, only completely different.) The only reason I know that she is older than I am is that she tells me that I remind her of her daughter and, she said she didn't know who Heart was but was down with Sonny and Cher. I gotta tell you, that always throws me when she says stuff like that because she just seems really young at heart (must be the green tea). She's not quite as nutty as Phoebe, but she has her moments!

UPDATE: I wrote that was when I was first getting to know Candy. She's every bit as nutty as Phoebe! She is also hilarious, kind, compassionate and just wonderful all the way around. I hear she also makes some mean Chex mix in obscene quantities.

Happy Birthday Candy! I love ya, gal! Even if your husband still refuses to follow me on the twitter...

Well, Candy MUST be an awesome gal, because she shares a birthday with my own dear lovely mother.

Happy Birthday Candy! and many, many, many, many, many more to follow.

Holy sweetness, Katdish, that's one fabulous birthday cake! Will it be at my door soon? Thanks for the shout-out, friend. Still can't figure out how you guys knew it was my birthday. Wish I'd have cleaned up (in your words) "some sidebar crap" before I had all these visitors today!

Feeling very blessed by your friendship. Shiny, very shiny Love ya right back!

I hope somehow you get to have your cake and eat it too! You could probably pull that one off!
Happy Day to you!

Have a wonderfully whimsical birthday Candy.

Yeah, RonSteele doesn't follow me either. Doesn't stop me from twalking (that's twitter stalking) him though.

Happy birthday Candy :-) You are awesome and I'm blessed by your presence in my life. And also, I can't pass a health food store or watch a healthy cooking show or look at a sweet potato without thinking, "Oooh Candy would be all up in this bid-ness!"

big monkey-butt hugs!!

And kat, I've been reading your blog, I've just been a clacker (that's comment slacker) because these work people have been demanding my time. I still love a ho, so don't think I don't just cuz I haven't said so in a while...

Happy Birthday Candy!

I hope your birthday is better than all the birthdays I've ever had put together!
