Birthdays...

So I have yet another random blog. I get so jealous of all you people with super cute blogs and themed entries and neat templates! Creative writing was never one of my strong suits. However, today is my birthday and since my husband is downstairs cleaning up the birthday mess, woot woot, I get some blogging time. So this is the first birthday that I actually feel older. All of those things I remember Moms telling me would happen, are starting to happen. In fact, I looked in the mirror yesterday and swore my Moms butt and thighs were staring back at me! It's not like I'm freaked out about getting older, it's just such a strange feeling to be on the other side of the fence. I remember being little and thinking about adults as, "old" or "mature" or in other words, "no fun". I remember when my "fun" aunt got married I was totally devastated because I thought that meant she was "grown up" and wouldn't be any fun anymore. And here I am, married, and a Mom myself. So, in light of my recollection that I am now the old, mature, no fun grown up I didn't want to become, here are a few fun thoughts about me.
  • I really dislike washing dishes. I put EVERYTHING in the dishwasher. Even if it says not to. And all those things that say "top rack only" oh yeah, I put them on the bottom.
  • I say seriously all the time. Seriously.
  • I sometimes think I was meant to be a ballerina. Seriously, (ha, there I go again) I have naturally curved arches and pointed toes that dancers work for years to get and long arms. If I was 15lbs lighter and my dang mother had put me in a ballet class when I was 3, I might be famous.
  • I sometimes fantasize about being famous.
  • I won state in a speech and debate tournament my junior year for Radio Commentary.
  • I am pretty sure I got skipped on the whole "natural ability" thing. I don't think I have a special ability to do anything naturally. I don't know that I've ever made an all natural meal, I didn't have a natural birth, and I naturally suck at anything that involves making things from nature.
  • I am a carb-addict. I eat a piece of plain bread for a snack all the time.
  • I love musicals and one of my lifelong dreams is to have everyone burst out in song and dance in a random place like a mall or restaurant just like on My Best Friends Wedding.
Well, there you have it. More random thoughts from Jen. We had a fun barbecue with some friends to celebrate and our awesome neighbors came over for the first time for my b-day bash. Good food, good company, what more could a girl ask for!?!

Jen, Happy late Birthday. What a great post. You could have been a ballerina for sure, you are so skinny. I'm glad you guys had fun, we wanted to come but Jessica and I were feeling a little sick so we choose not to share it.

JEN!!! I to dream about being famous... But then I think about all of the Poparazzi, and then the law suits I would get in for punching them all in the right eye, and then I realized, I just want to have tons of money. Without the lawsuits, I don't want to punch anyone in the eye. Unless its a poperazzi.. nevermind this is going nowhere!

You are definitely not old because that would mean I am old, and I refuse to be old! I think this post definitely counts as creative writing! And, I would love for everyone at the Valley River Center Mall to break into song one morning while we are there walking- maybe just maybe!

JEN!!! What the heck?!! Happy Birthday!! I should have remembered that your b-day was in June. I'm losing my mind! I loved this post! Just when I think I know someone pretty well, I learn another cool thing about them. So fun....And I hate to break it to you, but you only get older and more boring from here on out. Before you know it, you'll be just like me...So enjoy these young years...We can't wait to see you on the fourth! I'll let you know when Brian and I figure out for sure what our plans are, but plan on coming over!
