52 Weeks: More Birthday Pictures (8 out of 52)

52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU, hosted by Forever in Blue Jeans, to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. We are always the ones behind the camera, this is YOUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. We are glad you are joining this challenge. More importantly your family will really enjoy having you in the picture. Thanks for playing along! Oh, you can just jump in now with 1 of 52, you’re not getting off that easy! Now go take a picture!

Yesterday I posted some pictures from my grandmother’s 70th birthday party last week. These are two more pictures from the party that I managed to sneak into.

Today is our last day on the road to “Dream State.” We should be pulling into town tonight and moving into our new apartment tomorrow morning. This post was scheduled a week in advance so I’ll still be missing in action and missing you bloggy friends like crazy! Have a great day!

Aloha Friday: What’s My Age Again?

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Last night I was doing my WiiFit fitness test and it was all, “You have a WiiFit age of 28, that’s just 2 years older than your actual age! Blah blah blah…” and I was like, “Huh, I must have entered my birthday into this wrong, because it should be 3 years…” Except I was wrong. Because I’m 26, not 25. Now, to be fair, I just turned 26 in December, so it hasn’t been that long, but I don’t mean, “I forgot I just had a birthday,” I mean that I felt with conviction that I was 25 and turning 26 THIS December. I was sure of it. I had to do the math to convince myself.

So like any smart momma, I called my husband and regaled him with this story, ending it with, “So you should pick up a birthday cake on your way home, because we clearly need to celebrate.” And then he came home without the cake and I was all, “Where’s my birthday cake?” and he was like, “I thought you were kidding.” And I was like, “You clearly don’t know me very well.” Then after dinner he ran out to the car to get his gloves from the car and I’m thinking, “Seriously? Your gloves? Can’t they stay in the car? I want to open up Wii Rockband now…” But then he came back WITH the birthday cake which he clearly had bought but then either forgot somehow or very cleverly left outside just so he could surprise me even though it had been my idea and the cake was really good, like way nicer than I was thinking when I asked him to buy me a cake at the last minute. So he clearly knows me VERY well and is the most awesome husband in the universe and that’s the end of my story.

So my Aloha Friday question(s) for this week (because when I grow up I want to be just like Jenni Jiggety or Daily Mish Mash) are:

  1. Have you ever forgotten how old you were? For like more than 5 minutes? (Because I’ve been carrying this fantasy of being a year younger since at least my birthday and it’s possible I thought I was 24 before that… how long has this been going on?)
  2. Do you think this can be blamed on my pregnant brain OR is it a sign I’m getting olllllld OR [insert your own excuse for my forgetfulness here].
  3. What is the sweetest thing your husband (or boyfriend – or previous boyfriend or husband if you are currently single) has done for you?
  4. Do you like surprises? Do you like planning them? What’s the best surprise you’ve given or gotten?

Aloha Friday: Cake & Ice Cream

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blogland anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer.

Today is my husband’s birthday (::waves:: Happy Birthday Sweetie!) so I thought for today’s Aloha Friday we could all share some cyber birthday cake and ice cream and celebrate his big day together! But since this is cyber space and not my kitchen of limited possibilities, I want to make sure everyone gets their favorite kind of cake and ice cream – ever – nothing but the best for all my bloggy friends (and you know, the dh who will be getting chocolate fudge cake with cream cheese frosting AND my homemade chocolate chip cookies – aka jackpot). So what I want to know is…

What’s your favorite kind of cake AND ice cream?

Wikipedia + Meme = Family Fun Birthday Extravaganza

My husband so enjoyed my Wikipedia Meme about the day I was born that he looked up his own info and boy were there some neat things that happened on his birthday (November 21)! I was so impressed, I decided to repost the whole meme using all three of our family birthdays, so we can always have these great little tidbits at our disposal – might make for some interesting home made birthday cards! (i.e. “Happy Birthday Husband – and also, Happy World Television Day!”)

So let’s see what great things happened on each of our respective days of birth, shall we? This time I’m not going to limit by number, simply show the most interesting things from each date:
