birthday wishes

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

The three major boys in my life all celebrate their birthdays in a 7-8 day period (depending on leap year). I've mentioned my two sons, but have yet to post some pictures of their birthday parties (coming- I promise, grandmas!).

Today is Jon's birthday. We were talking last night and he mentioned something that was bothering him about his body (I won't mention what- partly because I wouldn't want to embarrass him and mostly because I don't really remember) and I responded with "well, it must be because you're in your early thirties now". This is the 13th year we have celebrated his birthday together. It will be fun in (...let me count here...) 2015 when we have celebrated more birthdays together than apart.

He's already bought himself some birthday presents-- a turntable, some new records and a "squatty" IPod (last gen. nano). He's not one for surprises (in fact, he detests surprises)- so this is pretty much how it usually goes with him. I am planning on making him a pecan pie tonight to celebrate.

I love him. He's my best friend. He continues to be the coolest person I know and attempts to keep me up-to-speed with what's cool in music, media, movies, etc. even though I kind of lag behind a lot. He is a hard-worker, super-smart, a talented writer, an awesome daddy, and a sincere, loyal friend (those of you who are lucky enough to be one of his close friends know this for sure).

Loves.

i second the loves. but jon, you know that the latest twitter pic said free TANS, right? just so you aren't embarrassed when you go in for your free VANS and they direct you to a little room and leave you there with tanning bed glasses and lotion samples (not like I would know).

I was just remembering that the first time we all really became acquainted was at a b-day shin-dig at your house. We had so much fun together from that point forward didn't we? We sure miss you guys and hope Jon and other have happy, happy b-days!

I'm told that Jon also smells bad. I haven't gotten close enough to verify.

oh, and in response: my "problem" is that as I age I just keep getting better looking--you know, like Ben Button. I'm worried that it might alienate my friends.

The smell? Well, that's a side effect to the "always looking good" problem If I don't shower, I still look good (but smell bad). It's a curse.

Free tans!
