  5. Birthdays are great. Have a good one.

    My birthday tradition is to always go shopping and out to lunch with my sisters, my sister in laws, my mom and nieces. It's a great girls day.

    My friend threw me a surprise party for my 18th birthday. I should have seen it coming because her mom threw them for her and her older sister, but it took my by surprise anyway!

  9. Happy Birthday! You're so sweet. Probably my favorite birthday memory is the birth of my daughter three days after my birthday and the day before her dads. She's our birthday present baby! (and our only girl.) Hope you have a fabulous birthday.

  10. I have a memory but it's not a birthday one. It's one from this place in Portugal. See, I was camping with some friends for church and I was tricked. Badly. I've never been able to recover. To this day I'm afraid of being alone outside in the dark. Good times, good times. ;)

  11. Happy Birthday! It couldn't happen to a nicer person.

    One of the unexpected fun things I did for my last birthday... my husband took me to a park and we took pictures of Boise. I don't stop and look at how beautiful the world around me is often enough. At the end of the day, I had a new view of the world I see. It was so much fun.

  12. Happy birthday, Jenni - you really know how to throw a party!

    My favorite birthday memory was two years ago when I turned *gasp* 40. It was a traumatizing age for me. My husband surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas to see Barry Manilow (yes, I am a proud Fanilow) in concert. I cried through the whole thing. Man, I love my husband! :-)

  13. Happy Birthday! Congrats on your book deal too! What a gift.

    My favorite birthday memory is actually pretty awful but life's challenges are always funnier later right? It was my eight birthday and I had my first sleepover party my mom nick-named it "The Birthday Party From Hell." One girl, while playing makeup with us, used so much eyeliner that she looked like a football player. When we laughed she hid under my bed for ages, another girl decided to walk home in the rain at midnight and everyone else ended up giving each other the silent treatment. It was a mess but I learned who my true friend was(the one who stuck by me the whole time). And 17 years later, I still love that friend to death!

  14. Favorite birthday memory? How about the time I had an official teen party? Looking back, it was pretty boring, but it meant a lot to me that my friends came - good food and good company, that's what I like.
    Happy Birthday! :)

  15. Happy Birthday.

    My most memorable birthday was when My brother, sister and I turned 13. It was the first time we each got our own cake. We had a dance in our covered patio with all of our friends. We had a cake for the guests. So the great part was when a family member wanted a piece of our own cake we got to choose to share or not. When the're are 5 kids in the family it's a special occasion to have something all for yourself.

  27. Okay- so I know I'm late...but...just wanted to say Happy Birthday!

    My favorite birthday memory is from my 21st birthday. My birthday is in Aug., so I never was able to celebrate in school. When I went away to school, we used to decorate each others dorm rooms on birthdays. My friends knew that I was bummed because my room would never be decorated and I would never get to celebrate my birthday with them. So, on my 21st, my friends drove to my parents house while I was at work and decorate my room for my birthday. I started crying. It was awesome.

  31. I'm reading Northanger Abby right now, and I have to say, it's not really doing it for me. Not at all in the same league as P and P. But I'm looking forward to your book! It sounds way more interesting.

    Happy Birthday!

    Jenni, I just wanted to post that my favorite birthday memory was your 18th. The Holy Grail scavenger hunt. We cheated and used the reverse directory in the phone book and ended up at the Bates instead of the Frost's(?). "We have been sent by King Arthur (aka your mom)in search of the Holy Grail." Br. Bates: "ummmmm" (crickets chirping in the background). Us: "Just give us the dixie cup!" I think he had a red Solo cup and asked if that would do. Knowing we had won, we sped of to your house for your mom to ask where we got the cup and laughed at us. Runner up is the same night when your, then boyfriend (now galant husband), did a tuck and roll to get the cup from the "Siren". Hilarious!!!! I still tell people about it. Although, the Siren thing, you had to be there or at least know the people.

  38. Happy birthday! (2 days late.) But I hope you're STILL celebrating :-)

  39. Happy Birthday! :) (A little too late). So I thought I could share one of my birthday memories. So my friend's birthday is the 23rd of January and last year (2009), me and my other friend were making this scrapbook for her. It took a lot of effort and when her birthday arrived, it still wasn't done. So a couple of weeks went by (my friend and I didn't have a lot time to work on the book at the moment, we were really busy) and suddenly months went by. And she was like: "Guys, when do I get my gift?" and all we could say was: "Oh, we're so sorry, but we've been really busy! You'll get it! Promise!"
    So at the 23rd of January 2010 she finally got her gift! 12 months late. But final point: She said it was worth waiting for :) (It turned out really great).
    Have a great day ! :)

  42. I just had one more hilarious birthday memory. It was RC's birthday. You and I went to Walmart and bought a TON of chocolate and posterboard to make him a huge card with the candy as part of our message. We were halfway to your green gremlin when we remembered that he was allergic to chocolate. We kept all of that and went and bought non-chocolate. Then, as we were making his card, ate ALL of the chocolate. Neither of us felt well. I didn't eat chocolate for about six months after that. Good grief!!! We were hilarious. I wish there had been secret cameras taping us so we could laugh even harder now.
