Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me!
 Can you tell I love my birthday?
 We don't usually do anything super exciting. Just a quiet night at home watching movies and eating pizza {the perfect night}.
 I usually drag it out for at least a few weeks. 
That's just how I roll. 
So I'm 36 now. I know what you're thinking..."She only looks 25!" Well stop, you're embarrassing me. Things have gotten entirely too serious here on the ol' blog so I thought I would give you a giggle.

 Here are some pictures that I think explain a lot about me...

 Clearly, I have always loved a good nap. Who doesn't?

  I have always told Hubby I am a princess, now I have irrefutable proof. 

  This clears up a lot about why I hate clowns.

 This must have been a sign that I was going to have 4 kids. 
Mom, I can't believe you didn't see this one 

 Obviously I loved fashion. Also, I wish I still had those boots.

 Let's just take a moment with this one...Please tell me someone out there has a picture like this, with the creepy silhouette in the back ground. I look like I'm about to take another nap.

  Now because I love you all, I'm ready to give you all a truly good laugh. My instagram friends had plenty of spectacular things to say about this picture.
 I'm not sure if I'm more concerned about the hair or the fact that I wore an outfit straight out of  "Miami Vice" in the 4th grade.
 A red button down shirt and a black blazer? Really?
I remember always loving my perms. Obviously this picture is making me rethink this.
 Hubby says he doesn't think this hairstyle was ever legal. Luckily he didn't see this until after he was already madly in love with me.

Obviously I LOVE to laugh, and I don't mind one bit laughing at myself. Hope you got a giggle. 
 So another year under my belt. God has been so faithful.
 I am excited to see what he has for me and my family this year. 
Also want to give a huge "thank you" to all my friends for your birthday wishes and  happy mail I've been receiving. 
Love you all! 

PS: If you want to send me a personal note about how seeing these pictures changed your life, feel free.

That clown picture might be one of the creepiest things I've ever seen! I can't believe you are sitting so calm & not running for your life! Hahaha!

I've always disliked clowns, too.

Mary said...

you haven't changed a bit.
you rock that poodle hair. :)
love it.

also if cabbage patch kids are predictors of our future children i will have one redhead, twins - a boy and a girl, and a little girl who burps a LOT (did you have that kind?).
i think i also had one more scraggly thing someone gave me from thrift shop or something - she had no clothes and was quite ragged.

i think i'm in for it. ;)

Happy Birthday to my birthday buddy!!! Love all the old school pics, especially the silhouette ones..classic! And, I thought you were the same age as me!

Kelly said...

Happy Birthday Jami. this was great.

Meredith said...

Almost peed my pants b/c the last picture looks just like Will but with a wig on! Oh my word!!! Forget that it's the perm--it seriously looks like he threw on a wig and smiled! LOVE it! Happy Birthday and good laughs to us...thanks girl!

Krista said...

Ha! Love them! I'll be turning 35 soon so I can relate to all of these. I definitely had the ghostly silhouette background picture...Olan Mills I think? And a bad perm? Um yes. Mine was in 6th grade. Good to laugh at yourself :)

Wishing you a most happy birthday Jami!

Laurie J said...

katygirl said...

Omg the clown. Nightmaressssssss

Jessica said...

Thanks for the laughs! Your daughter sure resembles you in the princess pic. I think you had one more Cabbage Patch doll than I did. BUT, did you have a preemie like me? :)

I believe I had that same boy Cabbage Patch. His name was Casey :)

Happy belated birthday!! You DO make 36 look fabulous! These pictures are AWESOME. lol. Especially the "creepy silhouette" one. haha. I don't have one of my own, but I've seen them plenty in other peoples' homes! I was definitely afraid of clowns when I was a little girl, and that clown picture is SCARY. . . My favorite is the last one. You look so cute with your perm!

Stephanie said...

Ha!! How did I miss that pic on instagram?! Love all of these...those silhouette pics always creeped me out too. My favorite is the one of you with the 4 cabbage patch babies. LOVE it... and gorgeous looking 36 year old!
