Another Birthday in the bag...


My favorite birthday memories:


My 7th - I was in first grade... my mom got me all dressed up and my dad took me out to a restaurant, just me and him, complete with a corsage. We ate and talked like "grown-ups".


Sweet 16 - my boyfriend's parents threw me a sweet sixteen party, complete with pizza, silly games (like tie balloons to your feet and try to pop everyone else's) and cake. This was where I was cordially introduced to Strawberry Schnappes, and where I acquired my first true hangover. I remember walking across the bottom mantle of the fireplace as his dad walked in from work and asked him where my feet were because I couldn't find them...

My 18th - rousing party at my place, lotsa friends from high school, byob but NO drugs... mom got a migraine, had to take her to the hospital, my brother's best friend got his head stuck between the spindles of the rocking chair (we have a pic somewhere) and we had to break it to get him back out....

My 21st - in between kids (thank God) dancing at the Ohio Theater, my first introduction to Long Island Iced Tea courtesy of my little brother's friend Brad (I SHOULDA married that boy) who was kind enough to make sure I got home alright, tried to get me in bed, and was a gentleman when I said I didn't think it was a good idea 'coz I was drunk and he was my brother's friend. He'd been in "luv" with me for years~more stories on that later~and was still cool with me after that... chalk one up to stupidity...

My 27th - my best friend Shay snuck over to my house and put great big signs in the yard to have people honk when they went by... she was cool.

My 30th - Just Capt Crazy and me, a quiet night at my place, the only card he ever signed "love" and a beautiful sculpture that I still have...


This one(my 107th) - my brother's kids decorated the kitchen with balloons and streamers, and my mom had my cousin make a "Scooby Doo" birthday cake... I have the coolest family...

My 18th. C-rats & water, half-way through boot camp.

My 31st, sitting in the desert, waiting for the first Gulf war to start. ;)

Had a lot of fun ones, but the hard ones I remember the most.

Hope you had a great day!
