Calling all Beyonce Stans… If you are of the male persuasion with grand aspirations of wooing the Queen of Pop(tarts) away from her man, he has thrown down the gauntlet and now the ball is in your court.
Having celebrated her 29th birthday this weekend, Bey was gifted with (hold on to your platinum, waist-length weaves ladies)…an island!!!! Shelling out a cool $20 Million, The Jigga Man added a picturesque 12.5 acre island just off The Florida Keys to his wife’s portfolio.
I swear, it’s like a calculated game of 21st Century Monopoly between these two; I can’t wait to see how she plans to upgrade him on his birthday. What do you want to wager that she’ll probably buy him the Eastern-most part of The Moon with a Lunar Condo to boot?
Happy 49th Birthday to President Barack Obama….
Here’s hoping that you enjoy this day of your birth (which I wholeheartedly believe, occurred in the beautiful state of Hawaii; as did mine incidentally…Fanny Pack Fact #278),
May you celebrate with laughter, love, friends, family and funtabulousness (see: The 2010 Sarah Palin Fictionary, 2nd Edition for exact definition)!

On this date, some three decades ago on the tropical island of Oahu, yours truly sprang forth full of life, exuberance and two lungs full of hot air. Not a lot has changed since those many years ago, huh?
My outspoken bravado notwithstanding, please excuse me for the remainder of this day, while I forgo the customary Fanny Pack blog post to instead celebrate another wonderful year of being blessed with life, family, friends and OF COURSE the gift of wordsmithery (yes, that’s right…and no, don’t bother looking it up, it’s got my trademark).
So, in honor of this special day, let’s all take a commemorative picture walk through a few of my “life and times” moments. The way I see it, today marks another fabulous year, another fabulous outlook on life. I’m alive and well when many people weren’t granted the opportunity to continue this walk. The fragility of life has never been lost on me, and being given another day to try to “get it right” keeps me humbled and grateful.
With this in mind, I will always celebrate my special day with all the extra-ness I can muster…and what could possibly be more EXTRA than a Yo Gabba Gabba birthday serenade from the Ting Tings (you can thank my two-year old for my addiction to this show)?
*Woooo Hooo* Happy Born-Day To Me! *Throws Confetti*
