Rob's Birthday Wishes?

This was made for me by my beloved Trixie
a birthday or two ago.
It still remains one of my all time favorite 'gifts'.
Who wouldn't want Robert Pattinson
wishing them a Happy Birthday?

I love it.
I still love it.
I still love Trixie.
I still love Robert Pattinson.

Not so much.
Once you're past 21
they kinda lose their significance.
And once you're a Mom
Birthdays are all about your kids.
That's just the way it is.

I decided to just post some
of my favorite WALKING pics of Robert.
I have SO many to choose from
(Yes, you would be amazed)
so it wasn't easy to pick just a few
but since it is my birthday...
I thought this would be a fine way to celebrate.

Just being fucking amazing.
As always.

This one kinda started it all for me...
Still one of my all time faves.

Until this one showed up...

Strut. Sunglasses. Suit. Smile.

But then THIS one showed up...

(Although after a night of celebration, I'm well on my way)

And there are so many more...
So many.
I will just post some of my favorites...
and shut up.
And let you enjoy the majesty of 
Robert Pattinson

And what would my birthday be without 
including the adorable Tom Sturridge?

This one is probably my favorite of Tom and Rob.
So cute.
Just like them.

That's it for me.
I gotta do birthday stuff...

Thank you for all of the wonderful 
Birthday wishes.
It means more to me than I could possibly express...
and I'm pretty good at expressing myself.

So a couple of final birthday thoughts.
1. Robert. Walking.
NOBODY does it better.

2.  You all need to go see this...
Smitty is the sweetest.


Thank you again, Dear Smitty.
I <3 You.

3. A final serious thought...
I wish people would stop making this stuff
so damn personal.
Everyday something else is going on
that shocks and stuns me.
I've said it before and I will say it again
(and probably again and again)
I don't understand why people
feel the need to try and hurt people
and to take it real life.
I just don't fucking get it.
It's just Rob and Kristen.
It's not that serious.
At least it shouldn't be.

This post is brought to you by the letters *H* and *L*

H for 
All the Happy Birthday wishes.
Thank You.

L for Love
I love you.
You know I do.

I wish there was more love...
and less bullshit drama.
But I can only control my own actions.

Thanks again to everyone
who were so kind to send me birthday wishes.
Every one made me smile.
Thank You.

Bye for now

DK and All,
We need to pick a time to meet back, with drinks in hand, to toast our dear Rose!

deb said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY my DEAR ROSE have a good one. DEB

Melinda said...

Happy Birthday Rose!!! I have seen what a wonderful friend you are so I'm 110% sure that spills into what a wonderful wife and mother you are.

*While our voices may be different, our tones varying, and our volumes waiver—we’re all singing the same song.

So thank you Rose for giving us a place to "sing"!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day! Gotta get back to baking for a party tonight.

*I didn't come up with this so I want to give credit where credit is due. CC who created the KSIBTU blog wrote that in her post Friday. Thought is was fitting for my comment today.

Freddie said...

Hi Rose,

I just wanted to wish you all the very best for your birthday. I hope you have a great day with family and friends. Know that you have many people who think the world of you.

All the best.

I hope everyone else in Roseland has a great day.

cutiestar said...

And of course the staple song for all birthdays. Have a happy one!

Happy Birthday Rose!! And thanks!
LOVE is something that we must believe in...
"Love is in the air, everywhere I look around
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I’m being foolish, don't know if I’m beingwise
But is something that I must believe in"

May the celebration of your birthday be unforgettable!
I'll be toasting you later.

I've already commented, but one can never say too much about good things. Kudos on Rose's birthday blog.

Yes, let's toast Rose, what's a good time for you?

Wow, that Youtube video of Tom Sturridge is incredible! Appreciate the link.

Let the party on Roseland begin....

RTP_KJS_Lover said...

Hi Rose, I rarely comment, but I always, always read whenever you post. This is one of my favorite blogs, please don't ever stop.

I wish you a marvelous, peaceful, loving, full of fun birthday! You deserve it! How old is NanaRose now? LOL! :-)

With all due sincerity, you are the sanity in this insane fandom.

Happy Birthday! I wish Rob (and Kristen) would walk into you house today. That's my wish for you.

<3<3<3 Lots of TWIRLS in your honor!!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..Good Evening to you and any Roselanders out there. We are watching Air Force One with Harrison Ford on TNT..had a very substandard dining experience this evening. The highlight of the day seems to be watching the movie and washing clothes..

DreamerKind said...

Hmmm, sounds like a productive, but unsatisfying Saturday night. No worries, something wonderful will happen and make up for it.

I'm making a Manhattan, and that says it all for my Saturday.

Lissa said...

Happy Birthday Rose!!! Hope you're enjoying this day that is dedicated to celebrating YOU......we need someone to do a manip picture of you between Rob AND TOM..... =)
Love your blog ALWAYS and forever. Have a wonderful evening Rose and everyone in Roseland.

*I*Believe* said...

Evening All~

DK~ raise your Manhattan and I am raising my Blue Moon to Rose! Here is wishing Rose health, happiness, a wonderful birthday and a wonderful year!


Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..That sounds good..Nothing else exciting to report here...ho hum...b o r i n g....(yawn) I asked for red wine at the restaurant and they were out so I settled for white..thats ok BUT I had my mind set on their house red..then a lady HAD to put her hand IN one of the containers at the salad bar...needless to say, being the nurse germophobe that I am, I reported it to the manager and could not enjoy any aspect of the experience.
Have a Manhattan for me too, whats in it? I would like it, no doubt.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

IB..Ive never had Blue Moon...I'll show my ignorance..is it beer???

DreamerKind said...

It's pretty strong, like a drink from the olden, golden days. I put in bourbon, dry vermouth, water and two lemon twists. Lots of ice, too. If you like dry & strong, it is divine IMO.

Salad bars? When dishing up food from them you must look the other way or it will make you squirm.

Blue Moon is a beer usually served with a fresh orange wedge and I am most fond of it, as you would think.

DreamerKind said...

Cheers to Rose!

Didn't see you were asking IB, sorry.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..I looked it up...2 oz rye whiskey....1/2 oz dry vermouth...2-3 angostura bitters...a cherry..heh.

*I*Believe* said...

Yes, Super, it is a beer. It is a Belgian Style wheat ale with coriander and orange...it is yummy!

Manhattans are too strong for me. My gradmother used to drink them and she live to 93:)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK...whew..that does look STRONG..2 or 3 of those and the walls will start to move! heh

IB and DK..The Blue Moon sounds intruguing..I like the idea of the orange..I will make sure I have one...soon!

I had an elderly patient one day that drank scotch every Saturday night and he was in his 90's and still sharp as a tack..I think the Key is tweeking your body with a "little" on a regular basis as opposed to "alot" which will kill you eventually or you will be so sick with cirrhosis of the liver you might wish to die...lol

(A Serenade for Rose)

This Is My Song

Engelbert Humperdink:

Why is my heart so light
Why are the stars so bright
Why is the sky so blue
Since the hour I met you

Flowers are smiling bright
Smiling for our delight
Smiling so tenderly
For the world, you and me

I know why my world is smiling
Smiling so tenderly
It is the same old story
Through all eternity

Love, this is my song
Here is a song, a serenade to love
The world cannot be wrong
If in this world, there is you

I care not what the world may be saying
Without our love, there is no day
So love, this is my song
Here is a song, a serenade to you

I care not what the world may be saying
Without your love, there is no day
So love, this is my song
Here is my song, a serenade to you

Thank you/behold789

(Song written by Charlie Chaplin for his last film "The Countess from Hong Kong")

Groovie said...

Hello DK, IB, Super & anyone else that's here I may have missed! Hope u are all having a nice evening.

Jumping in, "Blue Moon" is a good beer, they also have some flavored beer depending on the season. In the fall they make "harvest moon" which has a dash of pumpkin taste to it, its really good!
There is also a beer called "Leinenkugel" and they have flavors as well, I have their "harvest wheat" right now and it has an orange/citrus flavor to it. Probably similar to sticking an orange slice in a bottle of Blue Moon.

DreamerKind said...

I don't do the cherries anymore, too sweet for me! Mine is a dry Man as I call it, tee hee.

Don't usually have more than 2 Mans, if I want to walk and talk, but it is the kind of a drink that you nurse for about an hour or so, each. Pure pleasure in a glass.

*I*Believe* said...

Super~Blue Moons are very strong. Two of them an I am feeling very good! Anymore and I regret it in the AM.

A new drink some of my friends are drinking is like a creamsicle. It is whip cream flavored vodka and orange soda. Sounds weird but they say its great. I haven't tried one yet.

DreamerKind said...

Hullo, how is your Saturday? I love Leine beers, especially the seasonals and they are big here in Illinois for aren't they from Wisconsin, our neighbor?

Don't think I want to be in my 90's! Guess it isn't my choice though but I heart the scotch, too.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

HI GROOVIE....I love pumpkin..I will look for that in the fall...I just learned in December that we should look at the "date born" on the beer and NOT drink it if over like 3 months...I guess it does NOT improve with age..like me for example!

DreamerKind said...

Are you talking about those flavored whipped creams in a can? I saw them at the liquor store and did have a taste sometime ago, and oo, la, la, delicious.

My daw said they are not meant for drinks but for love play, what a dumbhead I am, never thought of that. For $10 bucks a can, sounds like a good, affordable choice for either activity. :)

DreamerKind said...

Oh, you do to improve with age...

I like you ever so much more, every day I know you longer, than I did only a month ago!

Rhonda said...


I see you ladies are having a drink or two, Hehehe :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..I agree...we SHOULDNT have more than 2 MEN in one evening!

*I*Believe* said...

Love play?!?! LOL!

No, the vodka is in a bottle not a whip cream can. They make different flavored vodka like cotton candy, strawberry and whop cream flavor.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

RHONDA..Hey there! We should use some of that whipped cream when the 2 MEN come to visit!

*I*Believe* said...

*whipped not whop

Hi Rhonda! What are you drinking tonight?

Groovie said...

Yes, u must try the harvest moon!
At first I was like "pumpkin flavored beer? Uh..no!" But its really good!

That's interesting about the date on beer, I never knew that! I wonder what mine in the fridge right now says? I should check!

Rhonda said...

Alcohol, men, whipped cream...sounds like quite the party, Lol :)

*I*Believe* said...

I'm lost! Where did the 2 men come from?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..I want to be in my 90's IF I can have my Botox, put one foot in front of the other, AND remember where I put the 2 Men AND the whipped cream...strawberry flavored sounds good!

word verif...focki (Im not making that up)!

Rhonda said...

Hi IB-

No good drinks for me tonight. I'm working in the morning.
You girls will just have to drink extra for me :)

lady quinzy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You deserve a happy one really. You,ve been doing all things right & just by being yourself is absolutely right! Be as STRONG AS YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN!

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~will tomorrow be a long work day for you?

Penny Lane said...

Hi ladies,

Are we talking about alcohol?

I like dark dark beer but I always have to ask my son which one it is. I think it's Stout, tastes like coffee

Rhonda said...

IB- yes, 12 hrs :)

I like Rolling Rock

*I*Believe* said...

Hey Penny!

Penny Lane said...

Hi Believe,

You know what tomorrow is? Got to get me some religion.

Rhonda said...

Hi Penny!

*I*Believe* said...

PL~We've been on a roll. We have been 2 weeks in a row...will push everyone to get there tomorrow:)

Rhonda~Sounds like a long day. Will you be on your feet the whole time?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PL..I was thinking about you today!!! I have been missing you. I have found as I get OLDER, my taste buds are liking stronger foods and drinks...so the stout would probably agree with me!

RHONDA..Did you get the house clean? what is Rolling Rock???

Rhonda said...

IB- I hope not..but probably :)
I signed up to work extra so you never know what unit you will be on until you get there.

We will see..

*I*Believe* said...

Super~Rolling Rock is a beer too!

We usually drink RR in the summer.

Penny Lane said...


Stout is great. There's a brewery not too far from here and they have this sampler you can order. I don't like beer normally, but the stouts have a coffee flavor and are kind of creamy.

Rhonda said...

Hi Super- It's beer and I did get the house cleaned :)

I'm trying to decide why it was necessary for me to buy 5 boxes of Thin mints from the Girl Scouts :)

Rhonda said...

Penny- I think I would like the coffee flavor

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~Try to take it easy tomorrow.

We also have a brewery close by. They have this awesome cherry wheat beer that is to die for:)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PL..If it tastes like coffee, count me IN..I drink my coffee black and STRONG..

RHONDA..Have a good day at work tomorrow

GROOVIE,DK and IB..Its been FUN..I will look for that creamy orangesicle vodka!

My eyelids are getting sleepy so I will check you guys out later.

Good Night.

Rhonda said...

Thanks ladies, G'night :)

DreamerKind said...


I'm going to be on the phone for a while.

I'll re-join you later.

*I*Believe* said...

Nite Super!

Rhonda~I am a GS leader so you buying the cookies was a good thing. Did you know you can freeze a few of your boxes and then you can eat them later :)

*I*Believe* said...

Well gang, guess the party is breaking up. Talk to you all soon:)

You Are My Lucky Star

Frances Langford-1936:

You are my lucky star
I saw you from afar

Two lovely eyes at me
They where gleaming

I was starstruck

You're all my lucky charm
I'm lucky in your arms

You've opened Heaven's portal
Here on earth for this poor mortal

You are my lucky, lucky star...

Thank you/cherieg1959

Morning Roseland!

My kitty and two puppies(full grown labs) got me up early(just like a work day, their internal clocks at work)and can't get back to sleep.

Rose, hope you survived the celebrating with minimal hangover issues.

Dk, mean't to mention yesterday, I enjoyed the concert you put on for Rose.

Gonna get back to reading while it's quiet. (ah, such tranquility, I love it)

Just want to say..Thanks you-Roseland has been like a second home for me-a place where i can express myself..

2 cups cooked chicken, cut up
1 can sliced water chestnuts
1 cup chopped celery
1 tbsp chopped onion
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cooked rice
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste


1 cup bread crumbs or crushed cornflakes
1 stick butter

350/30 min

Years ago it would take quite a bit longer to prepare but now I buy a roasted chicken from the deli and I buy frozen rice that can be heated in the microwave if I dont happen to have any leftover rice in the fridge. Its crunchy and the lemon juice and the cornflake topping make this really exceptional

*I*Believe* said...

Good Morning!!!

Rose~Hope you enjoyed all of your celebrating!

Super~My, my you are a busy beaver toady, already posting a recipe.

Rhonda~Don't work too hard:)

We had another four inches of snow last night so we are still adding to the igloo. Yes, this is really the Great White North. Since Smitty was able to post that lovely tribute to Rose, I will TRY to take a picture of the snow and post it for my avi. I can't promise anything but I will try.

Wishing Roseland a wonderful day!!!
