Happy Birthday To ME

On my way to Cabo San Lucas…sing along, It’s My Party And I’ll Drink-Lots-Of-Cerveza If I Want To, Drink-Lots-Of-Cerveza If I Want To, Drink-Lots-Of-Cerveza If I Want To, You Would Drink-Lots-Of-Cerveza Too If It Happened To YOOUUUUUUUUUUUU.

Do you know what would be the best birthday present ever? To see a BILLION TRILLION comments when I turn on my computer once I arrive in Mexico.

Then, I’ll show my family and pretend I’m a blogebrity. I’m self-serving like that.

Annnnd then, I’ll show my husband and say something along the lines of “Dude, will you look at these comments?! I’m a blogebrity! This could be my full-time job! I could stay at home with Wito and give him the love he needs!”

Annnnd then, he’ll tell me to keep dreaming.


C’MON…it’s MY BIRTHDAY and I have sore nipples!! Puh-lease?!

    I had this on my calendar. I am blaming it on my six week old babe. That is all I can say. Please have a dozen cervezas for me in Cabo. Then have a sweet tart vodka drink. You are a blogebrity in my world, sister. We discussed you at a family dinner the other night. Because there were three around the table that read religiously.

    Happy Birthday!

    I must admit, I’m a wee bit jealous. You’re going to Mexico AND you have a baby who SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT. Honestly? I don’t know which option sounds better at this point.

    Anyways, here’s hoping you have an amazing time. Take lots of pictures! I loved the ones you posted of Santa Fe. You know, a million billion years ago before you had Anders.

    Also, look! I typed a whole comment! I have gotten a break from the Asher the Boob Wrangler! So toast me with a gigantic margarita in Mexico.

    se las cantamos así…

    and thank you for sharing the slideshow of your weddings pics. my fiance and I are planning a very small wedding next year and it’s so rare to see any pictures proving that it’s been done before. your wedding looked like a beautiful, memorable day. Just what I hope for!

    Oh I love, love the gentle manipulation of the husbands. Drop enough hints and you will wear down his resistance. Basically, he’ll just want you to shut the f**k up about it and give in out of fear of insanity.
    Enjoy your vacation – Beans has regressed and for the past few days is feeding every TWO HOURS. Me so tired. What is going on? Maybe this is his silent protest before he sleeps through the night? One can dream.
