Happy Birthday Vodka Mom

The Spin Cycle this week is all about birthdays and anniversaries.

This morning I read over at Vodka Mom's that she will be turning 50 this week.

Vodka Mom is beloved by multitudes and deservedly so.

She is an awesome kindergarten teacher who shares stories from her classroom with her readers.

She is a generous blogger with a big heart. When I emailed her last year and asked if if I could steal her idea of a blog post where she was a fly on the kindergarten wall- just changing the parameters to my own class - she encouraged me with gusto.

And let's face it. She is hilarious and she makes me laugh, often when I am hanging by a thread.

My spin on birthdays is to encourage everyone to drink a martini and toast to Vodka's 50th.

Like a big blogger block party.

Happy 50th Vodka Mom!! It's not so bad on this side of 50; so nice of you to join us.
For more spins on birthdays and anniversaries, head on over to Sprite's Keeper's.

Happy Birthday. . . Vodka Mom!

I couldn't think of a nicer toast. But someone will have to bring the chilled vodka over here, as I'm now back in the alcohol free village. Unless you count the hooch the locals made and which killed my bathroom wallah.

Pastor Sharon said...

I left a treat for you at my place. Stop in an pick it up when you are done grading papers!

Happy 50th Vodka Mom!

I don't think I like Martinis. Wine will have to do.

Great tribute Pseudo! And I love martinis so 'clink, clink'!

Already told VM HBirthday on her blog, but I guess it bears repeating, although I refuse to sing like Beth!

Happy Birthday VM!

Sprite's Keeper said...

Now THAT I will drink to! Having met Vodka, (I KNOW!!!) she is absolutely the sweetest person you can imagine, and it will always be five o'clock for her on my site. What a lovely tribute, you're linked!

Happy birthday to VM. I'll have to pass on the martini, but I will have some cake in her honor instead.

Jan said...

Have I ever mentioned what a sweetheart you are?

Happy Birthday, VodkaMom. I shall raise a virtual (and perhaps actual) martini to you this evening.

Casey said...

Aww, what a nice tribute from a good friend! Happy birthday, VM!

Amy said...

How nice of you. I hope she had a wonderful Birthday.

Captain Dumbass said...

Very nice of you. I had an awesome time guest posting with her last weekend. She's fantastic.

Doesn't vodka get better with age???

Mama Badger said...

Perfect timing. I should be able to drink by then! And what a good way to get back into the swing of things. Great tribute.

You'd never know she's 50. You all look great for your age (expecially on a blog!)

Vodka Mom said...

you are such an incredible person. YOU are the one we should all be toasting.

Yet I thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This community has lifted me more than they (and you) will ever know.

Again, i thank you. Now where's my damn drink???
