Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my birthday! What am I doing to celebrate? Going to see Britney Spears LIVE IN CONCERT!! (I hope she says or does something really crazy so I can blog about it here!) Since it's my birthday, and my blog, I get to indulge myself by sharing a few random facts about me.

1. I was NOT a cute baby. I had a mohawk. And really fat cheeks. Don't believe me? Scroll down for photographic proof!

2. I weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce at birth. Wow.

3. I am 32 years old, but still feel 18, and often act 11.

4. My mom still cooks me a spaghetti dinner every year for my birthday. Perhaps part of why I still feel 18 and act 11.

5. I am giving away music from Britney Spears and New Kids on the Block! Click here to enter!

6. I have more than one tattoo.

7. I bite my nails.

8. I am terrified of spiders.

9. Pink is my favorite color.

10. I can't wink. Or whistle.

11. When I grow up I really want to be a librarian. Or florist. Or portrait photographer.

12. The smell of cooked broccoli makes me nauseous.

13. I collect Gone With The Wind Memorabilia.

14. I have a MAJOR crush on Ben Affleck.

15. I get motion sickness in the car or on a boat.

16. My second toe is longer than my big toe.

17. My shoe size is 7.5

18. I'm a bad dancer.

19. But I'm a really good speller.

20. I once went 20,000 miles without an oil change.



Be sure to check out the Birthday song dedicated to me by my real-life friend Rhiann of Through the Garden Gates!

Happy belated birthday!! Here's to the long second toe, spider fearing, non whistling, over 9 pound babies born in '77!!
(You can include me in that list of people, just a little later in the year)

Grand Pooba said...

Well your babies are much cuter then you were. That's all I'm saying bout that.

Britney Spears? That is so funny to me! Didn't she flash her cha cha one time in her concert? Maybe you'll get the same show, if you're lucky!

I'm so with you about acting like an 11 year old, well I sometimes act like a 7 year old too.

My husband gets after me all the time because I forget to get my oil changed. That's his job isn't it?

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

Happy Birthday! I can't wink or whistle either. Or roll my tongue. I'm a terrible speller though. :)

Grand Pooba said...

How rude, i didn't even wish you happy bday.

Happy Birthday!

(I've got you entered in the contest! Good luck!)

Susie said...

Rachel said...

Oh come on now... that baby picture is adorable! And you make cute kids too!

You'd have really hated my years of ballet... that "morton toe" really hurts when you're dancing on your tippy-toes I've heard. But super common, so you're popular! :)

Happiest Birthday!

Christina said...

Happy (belated) birthday! My hubby always says that if your second toe is longer than your big toe then you're athletic. :)
