Today I Turn 32...

11.15.2009

years old. In the picture here I was 12 years old (it was 1990) and I was posing for my mom in my new (to me) basketball uniform (and yes, I realize I look slightly possessed!). I also realize that my uniform really wasn't all that cool but this was Junior High we are talking about so they weren't the coolest of uniforms to begin with (those all went to the girls in high school). And I think it's safe to say that I wasn't all too concerned with "cool" at this stage in my life anyways (due to my lack of hairstyle and would you check out those stylin' hightops, complete with the velcro straps at the ankles!!!!) All I can say is, thank goodness I grew out of this ackward stage! =) Truthfully though, I may have grown out of my physical geeky-dom (some may argue and say only just somewhat!) but I just moved on to even more ackward and strange life stages while on my way to becoming an adult. But it's all been real and crazy and at many, many times, fun...and that's something to be thankful for. Hoping that this 32nd year will be the best yet!

Happy birthday!! This is about the age where I realized that when I was kid, and my mom was in her 30's, she was still learning. I always thought she knew everything, and one day it hit me. She was just trying to figure it all out still herself... not sure why I'm sharing, but there it is.

Happy Birthday!!! And I think I had those same high-tops in about 3 different colors (including pink) -- so I probably out-geeked ya!

Happy Birthday, Friend! I can remember several of your birthdays parties, celebrated in quite a variety of ways ;)
Wish I could be with you to celebrate. I was (for some odd reason) thinking about Bailey's Irish Creme today and that made me think about Nutty Irishman and that made me think of you. Maybe when I come to stay with my parents I could make a road trip up your way and I could 'cheers' you with a late birthday shot.
