Birthday Shout-Out: Janet, Bea and Katlynn Ann!

Hello. Hey, Bloggy Friends!

There are some special birthdays to today, that I know will inspire us all to celebrate!

First off - Congratulations to Casey, who just welcomed the newest addition to his family. Katlynn Ann was born yesterday in East Tennessee. This is Casey's second niece. She helps complete a perfect balance of two nieces and two nephews. He'll take a trip to visit them on Memorial Day. Congratulations, Gurl!

Also celebrating a big birthday today is legendary actress, and gay icon, Bea Arthur. Most of us know Ms. Arthur from her hilarious days on one of my favorite TV series, The Golden Girls. She was born on this day on in 1926. She officially marks the oldest member of my birthday shout-out series, at 85 years old. She's only a few years older than John McCain!

Janet Jackson is also celebrating a birthday today. Ms. Jackson (if you're nasty) was born in Gary, IN in 1966. Her latest album, Discipline, is a smash. It's jam-packed with up tempo dance numbers, like the track "Feedback." Like the Britney and Madonna albums - it's a sure pleaser.

Join me in wishing a happy birthday to each of these lovely ladies. Thank you for the laughs, for the music and for the blessings I know you will bring to this world in the future.

Have a great day, Bloggy Friends. We are leaving tonight for a short roadtrip to Kentucky! It is finally time for us to pick up the newest addition to our family - Galileo. We are so excited. Stay tuned!!

Love you all,

Thanks for the nod to Katlynn (her middle name is actually Ann, it's a tribute to my mom who's middle name was Diane).

I cant wait to hear all about Gailileo.
