Happy Birthday To Me

I have the most random pictures from my birthday week. I have no idea what happened...

On my actual official birthday, Jen, Robyn and our respective children met for lunch and yummy cupcakes at The Coffee Shop. Then we played "Where's Luker?" Followed up by, "Who Can Get The Most Mud On Yourself." On Wednesday, Jen accompanied me to Buckle where Josh let me fall in love with a pair of new jeans. (He got an iPhone, so it's only fair.) I have pictures of my booty, but it might seem weird to post them. Obviously not so weird to take them in the first place...

Thursday night was dinner with my parents. Here's a self portrait of Kate and me...

... and Kate's shot of my parents.

Friday night was Girls Night. I swear there were people with me. It's not like I just went out to dinner by myself and then bought myself an ice cream cake. Ummm, did anyone take pictures??? It was a great week and I'm again thankful for another year (boy, was it a YEAR!) and for friends who take pictures of my booty, who plan birthday dinners for me even if they can't come, who live far away and still cry with me when Chicago is not close enough to Nellos, who go out of their way to find funny cards because they know I love them, who buy me ice cream cakes, who can't come shopping with me, but tell me to come over afterwards so she can compliment my choices, who call from New York to wish me a happy day and parents who can't possibly be any better at being parents.

We want booty pictures! We want booty pictures!

Glad you had a good birthday week. Love you...and your Buckle-clad booty.

Booty, booty!

CUTE top (pink one!) LOVE IT!

Sorry I didn't buy you a funny card. It was too much pressure. Like ... what if you didn't laugh? Could I live with myself - being the only friend who bought a card that didn't make you laugh??

So ... next time you're in the hood ... dessert is on me!!!

Love you and you really look pretty in that pink shirt. I miss you and I'm thankful that we walked through the last year together and you're a really nice friend. I love you!

I thought that bbost post was from Ben at first and was a little scared. Is that pink shirt one of your new Buckle ones? I love it. But I love you infinitely more and am so thankful you were born!!!

In honor of your birthday dinner I sadly didn't get to attend: Ahem. "Mikele, you are fun, cute, lovely, witty and an all around kick to be around! So glad to know you! And your butt looks really cute in those jeans (I'm just assuming here)."

Here's the funny card I would have brought (I just wanted to say brUNG, hello):

Front cover -- It's your birthday! Well, WHOOP DEE FRICKIN' DO.

Inside -- No, really! I meant that in a good way!!! ;)

So sorry I couldn't come. I hate gallbladders. You are a beautiful, lovely friend. I still have your cards. Love you!
