Michelle Obama Birthday: FLOTUS Turns 48! (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

While celebrities and high-profile politicos get lots of perks, they are still just regular, normal people. That means they laugh, they cry... and they age.

Michelle Obama turns 48 today -- happy birthday, FLOTUS! While she's had a year full of speeches, travel and red carpet dresses, she's had plenty of down-to-earth moments too: walking the dog, watching a game of basketball and, yes, that famous trip to Target.

In honor of the first lady's big day, we've rounded up some of Michelle's sweetest "regular" moments of the year. (And don't forget to revisit this amazing little moment from her 45th birthday, which is still our fave.)

FLOTUS -- she's just like us!
