Thirty......four!




Ok- so I'm 34 now and there is no way around it. I realize that 34 is actually young in the real world, but in Utah, I may as well request brochures for Shady Oaks assisted living. I wanted to post simply because it was a very sweet birthday filled with love. At 3:45 in the afternoon on the 23rd, I got a call from Shawn! He immediately started to sing Happy Birthday. It was 12:45 am for him and he said he was making sure he was the first to sing to me on my birthday. I love him so. Then I had breakfast delivered to me by DeLana -with a candle to blow out to boot! I was treated to lunch by Angela and in the meantime, Kira delivered the most beautiful flowers and my favorite See's chocolate. My kids were whisked away for a couple of hours while I napped. My mom, Jon, and Josh also called and to top it off, we are having a movie and mojito party with neighborhood ladies tonight. I feel so spoiled. Gros bisous to my sweet family and friends. My birthday rocked! Here is the 34 year old in a self portrait....

Looks like the Manoa girls are representing on your blog this morning. Jill, can you believe how time flies? Crazy. You are a very beautiful 34 with lots and lots to show for your short life so far. Love you!

Happy Belated Birthday, Jill!!
Sorry we dropped the ball and didn't call. We're lame. But you already know that.

And for the record, I don't think of you as a day over 25. (Of course, I don't think of Kevin or Chris as being a day over 14, so perhaps it's time to update my brain).

We love you!!!!

Alright, Jill, we are total losers, I know! I meant to call you and round about 9:30 last night I realize that I didn't do it. I am so sorry, but we do wish you a super happy 9th anniversary of your 25th birthday. I am glad to hear it was a good day!

Happy Birthday, Jill! I'll let you what, let's just all agree to keep it at 29. I liked that year! I'm glad you had a great day. See you soon!

Juli and Melanie-my subtle guilt trip worked! I 'm kidding. You know I love you both! And I have no room to talk by the way. Hey- can we celebrate together in November?

Happy Birthday Jill. I am glad it was a great one. I am relieved you commented on my blog, and added me to your list, now I don't have to blog stalk in secret anymore! Just because Eric buys his underwear at DI does NOT make it OK.

Happy Belated Jill! As for Juli's comment, I don't think of you as over about 15, like when you used to babysit me. How I'd love to go back to those carefree days! Love you! Hau Oli La Hanau!
