Let the Wild Rumpus Start.

I am officially 29!

Welcome to my Fancy Birthday Party. 

I hope you have a great day, and do something fun.  Then let me know what you did.

I am going to start the day with a pedicure.
Maybe end the day with some Cheesecake Factory.
 There will probably be dancing around the house with the kids, and a little dressing up.

I LOVE BIRTHDAYS! 


If you would like to send pictures of your adventures, e-mail me
benily05 {at} gmail {dot} com
Please. 
This is my version of begging.

I would like to do a  party post...you know, since this is my birthday party.

HAVE A FABULOUS DAY!!!


Oh, I have to tell you about two bright moments from Tuesday.

1.  The Border guy (CBP) told me I had beautiful eyes. (Flirty, yes.  Awkward, definitely.)
2.  The ticket taker at Sea World (who was definitely over 60) told Jack to wait for his sister.

I love compliments.  Especially at my age.

Look at you and your gorgeous self!!!

Happy Birthday to you, my dear friend!

Oh, and obviously the Border guy has:

1.) Eyes, and

2.) At least half a brain.

Shocking, actually. Maybe if that particular guy was there at the border more often when you passed through, your border-crossing life wouldn't SUCK so badly! If only the rest of them had eyes and half a brain...

Happy Birthday Emily! I hope you have a wonderful day, but stop calling 29 old. You're making us 30-year-olds feel ancient. :-)

Anne said...

Oh good! I thought I had missed it. I plan on putting on my party shoes this evening and having a little celebration in your honor. (And maybe in my honor too, if Brian ever gets his official handshake.)

Happy birthday!!

Happy Birthday Emily!! I hope your day is fabulous! I would take some pictures of what I did today, but going to the OBGYN for my fun check up, is probably not something you want to post on your birthday post :) LOL!!! Anyway, I miss you tons, I can't believe we only have 1 year left in our twenties, I want us to be care-free college girls again chasing after boys :) love you!

!!!Happy Happy Birthday!!! We've been very busy this week, but we had a very rare treat for your birthday... HAM! (Thank you embassy coop!) Ham with mac-n-cheese out of a box (the family's favorite).
And what are you fussing about 'at your age?' ... I hit 43 this year and do not feel old yet (my knees may argue, but they've had a bad attitude ever since we left the Army). I'll tell you what, since I have a head start, when I find out when old actually begins, I'll let you know. Don't hold your breath though!

LOL about the last 2 comments...

Yesterday, your Birthday (Happy Birthday by the way) a neighbor of ours invited our fam-damily over for a chili dinner. We were already pretty hungry, and disappointed when it wasn't prepared the night before as was planned. So we ate pretty late and then all these other people started showing up with alcohol. This was sure turning out to be a fancy party! We were so uncomfortable so we took the kids down in their basement to play.

Hows that for a fancy dancy party!?

I want to know more about that cake/cupcake in front of you!?

oh you make me laugh! Happy Birthday! We had a dress up party in your honor... I will email you pics soon. 4 year olds are really skilled at dressing up, just FYI. ;) I wish you were going to be at the mission reunion so I could talk to you in person! I haven't been to one in 3 years... should be fun. Hope your bday week celebrations are fabulous.
loves!

Happy birthday! And just so you know, 29 is the then 22 ( well that's what i keep telling myself) sister! Have a great day!

Jessica said...

I'm happy you got those compliments. On my birthday the pedicurist told my mom that she thought she was my sister! Does that mean she looks that young or I look that much older? Or does it just mean that Asian pedicurists will stop at nothing to get a good tip?

The Teeples Times said...

Happy 29th!! You are so young!! I too think you have beautiful eyes, and I'm not even trying to hit on you like the border patrol guy! I hope your wild rumpus was just that....wild and rumpus - y! For your birthday, I went to the post office - man, it is exciting around here! I hope you do make it to the beach this week, and I will try not to be jealous as we are sitting here in rain, rain, rain. Miss New Jersey yet? I didn't think so! Happy Birthday again youngin!

Sara said...

Cheesecake factory sounds divine! Simply divine. As are the compliments. I turned 30 this year and holy cow the insecurities just started rolling in regarding my appearance. It's like I'm in middle school all over again. Enjoy one more year before 30 hits!! Your boys are adorable! Beautiful family.

Daniela Swider said...

I am finding this out very late but I did want to say Happy Belated Birthday, Emily! You look terrific in those pictures - not a day older than 21! Hope you had a magical day!!!

Brooke said...
