Happy Birthday to Mrs. O on her 47th birthday! The First Lady will mark her birthday by participating in a service project to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Stuart Hobson Middle School today (seen above). Yesterday, the First Family attended morning services at Metropolitan AME church, where parishoners sang "Happy Birthday" to the First Lady. 

Update: The President, First Lady and close friends dined at Wolfgang Puck's the Source restaurant for Mrs. O's birthday on Monday night. To read more, click here.

Happy birthday, dear Mrs Michelle Obama ! May this day and all your days be blessed and full of joy for you and your family, I hope there will never be anymore hateful and violence that will make you fear also for your beloved husband and daughters.
Je voudrais parler dans ma langue pour mieux exprimer ce que je ressens en vous voyant chaque jour sensible, intelligente, sérieuse et détendue, si pleine de classe et si joueuse avec la mode, si présente auprès de vos filles, si naturelle aussi : you bring me so much just through the way you are, you wear and you smile.

(And happy birthday to you Kadia, one of the blog posters!)

Again...Happy Birthday First Lady...you live up to your title! A true lady indeed.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FLOTUS MICHELLE. My prayer today is that God will bless you with good health, more wisdom and continue to fill your heart with His abiding love. You are an example as to what a godly wife and mother can be when you are grounded with a committed, moral and discpline childhood that your parents worked hard to provide for you and your brother. I thank God for your mother and father how they raised you with the love of God. These have been the most exciting, uplifting encouraging days for me and my family as we continue to pray for you and your family. Yes, this is a fashion blog, but it's what inside of you that draws me here often. And that is your heart, your love, your spirit....and yes, YOUR HUGS. You are truly a blessed woman and you were groomed and chosen for this time in history long before you can imagine. I thank God for a chosing you and your family. You represent well. Happy Birthday.....Keep the Faith. Stay Focus. LDS

Hey all,

I just saw this and figured you'd enjoy it -- a short video celebrating loving moments between the FLOTUS and POTUS:

http://blackwaterdog.wordpress.com/2011/01/15/did-we-tell-a-spouse-just-how-desperately-we-love-them/

Many pictures are also a wonderful fashion review, but it's the energy and heart between these two remarkable individuals that shines.

And off to dinner--another Obama tradition--with the prez at Wolfgang Puck's The Source.

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20458315,00.html I LOVE this grey sweater! Anyone know where it's from? And how cute is Malia's outfit?

May the Blessings of the Lord shine upon you my dear FLOTUS and your family. As you share your, 47th birthday with this year's MLK holiday, we all take pause. When we remember his dream and we hear his words of peace, justice and equality, we see your face and that of our President Barack Obama.

Monday, January 17, 2011 at 9:17 PM | Registered CommenterMRS-G

Happy First Lady Obama! It's truly a Blessing to share the same birthday Month with you. May all your birthdays continue to be a Blessing!

Woohoo! I'm turning 40 this year and Mrs. O has made me look forward to many long, attractive years.

Love that sweater. Cozy, comfy and stylish.

Malia....stealing the spotlight with her natural style and amazing DNA! And yes, Sasha's a cutie too! (before I get reprimanded... :) )

On a totally frivolous note, I am a "nails" person; so I am totally loving the new darker-than-usual hue Mrs. O is sporting on her nails since the memorial service. Looks like a deep purple or brown.

The link below is the best close up I could find; maybe something to feature, Mrs. T? What do you think?

Thanks
