Love our Lurkers!

It's one of my favorite days of the year! It's DH's birthday. (points for those of you who know how old he is turning today....)

But, its also Love our Lurker's Days! This special blogging event takes place once a year, and this is my third time participating. This is the day where we bloggers, who put their heart and souls out here for you to read, hope to lure you out of lurkdom and come and say hi. Maybe tell me a little about you, what you like about reading my blog, or just a quick wave is fine too.

The first time I participated, I had one of the most memorable encounters with DH and a wooden paddle I had eagerly purchased when I first found the ttwd community and was still very naive.  :D You can read about it here.

The first time I participated, I also listed some of the countries my readers are from and I thought I would include that today again. And would definitely love to hear who is from where as I am a traveler at heart.

United States
United Kingdom
Germany
China
Ireland
France
Australia
Russia
Ukraine
Turkey
South Korea
Italy
Poland

I am excited for DH's birthday although he is always a little weird when it comes to his own birthday. Sometimes he wants to make a big deal of it, then changes his mind and wants to have his favorite dinner at home. So we are not sure yet what we are doing today! But whatever it is, I look forward to coming back here, and later, I know DH has a big post planned for tomorrow! Stay tuned! And happy birthday my wonderful husband. Can't wait to start this day out right!

    1. Hi Cali Mom - I'm answering for Julia, as our house has been without power for almost 24 hours now (brrrrr!). I think we're going out for dinner at the Outback, mostly because it'll be warm there. :p Thanks for your nice wishes!

  18. Happy Birthday DH. As the name implies I am from Australia. I visit this blog regularly but am one of the silent readers. Maybe I need a new year resolution (is it only 7 weeks away?) to comment where I lurk

    1. You know, that is so sweet. I always read your blog too, but don't always comment.

      The spanking is yet to come. We went to bed last night with no power on, three blankets on the bed, but woke up in the middle of the night and power was restored.
      But looking forward to tonight. :D

    1. Thank you Pearl. We didn't get to spend the day together. DH wrote me from work, saying he would leave early, and I asked him to please not, because we were all so cold already and I knew he would be miserable and unable to work from home.
