32 Birthday Wishes Part 1

So it'll be my birthday on Sunday. Usually I don't go around telling people when my birthday is, because that's just weird, plus also embarrassing. But this year is different. This year I'll be turning 32. Yeah, yeah... I know, I'm a baby. I wanted to do something different this year. Something I've never done before. So instead of making one birthday wish on 32 candles... I'm going to make 32 Birthday Wishes on one blog! LOL! A little bit each day.

So starting today:

Wish #1:
I wish that ALL My writing friends will become agented and will see their work published soon! (I mean it! There you go, wish sprinkles are floating down on you all right now!)

Wish #2:
I wish that all of my class in the Burghley school will get A's this year. (I really don't think this wish is necessary, because they are AWESOME writers!!!! Seriously! BUT I wish it just in case!)

Wish #3:
I wish my sister's wedding in Canada will be everything she's ever hoped it could be! And I hope she doesn't run this time. Yikes! Because he seems like an amazing guy... and I promised I'd have to take her out if she did... lol, and that's just so messy.

Wish #4:
I wish a certain FABULOUS editor (who will remain nameless) will love whatever rewrites she has me do for Pride & Popularity when we finally get to talk at the end of this month. And then, I hope she buys the whole Austen Series! Eeeh! Because, I love, love, love this editor... and I've been excited about maybe working with her since she very first read P&P last year! And since I'm wishing anyway, I might as well wish big, right?

Wish #5:
I wish our minivan would get out of the shop SOON. As much as I enjoy our clown car, I would love to be able to take a drive with the whole family again. And I miss, miss, miss, our van. It's been too long. No woman, trapped in a house with 6 kids, should have to go without a car since Thanksgiving, it's just cruel. (FYI: Don't bring a US car to the UK and expect not to have to wait for parts.. LOL!)

Wish #6:
I wish I don't have another miscarriage this year. The five in the last 15 months were enough, thanks. (We won't forget you Ethan! You will come to this family, promise. Know why? All my wishes come true... every one. They always have. So hang in there baby, we love you! And no matter what anyone says, 6 babies are NOT enough! LOL!)


  1. Another blogger in the 'young enough to be my daughter'group! Now that is guaranteed to make ME feel old - you're alright at the magic 32 stage though!

  2. I hope all your wishes come true! My birthday is on Friday! 39 for me! One more year till I'm officially "OLD"! :)

  15. And we can wish you happy birthday each day as it goes along! I love this idea.
    Your wishes are wonderful and so heartfelt. I will wish for you about the miscarriage as well. My heart goes out to you. I only had one, but it was enough.

  16. Ahem, I think some of your wishes were entirely too selfish. I think you needed to give more of your wishes away to us. I mean, I know it's your birthday and all, but come on, how dare you make wishes for yourself when there are so many of our dreams that haven't come true. Don't hold out on the next round. (lol, happy birthday, love ya)

  17. Renee--Number one will come true! I'll make sure it does! Thanks for the hugs!

    Candi--LOL! I'll send Emmalee over tonight (sigh Chase) Thanks for the wishes!

    Morgan--Thank you! Yes! Especially the one about Ethan!

  18. Debbie--Aww! LOL! I hope I still like the idea once I get to the end! LOL! Thanks.

    Kasie--Lol! You know me, always selfish..! So where's Joshua again? Do you have more for me to read yet??? I'm a very demanding person, woman! Give it to me! LOL!

  19. Jenni - I love this idea, I'm excited to hear about more wishes and I hope all of them come true!!

  20. really aren't that much older than I am! A majority of my close friends are older than you!! LOL! No wonder we had our struggles in the beginning! (But that's water under the bridge...)I'm so glad you're birthday gives so many reasons to have wishes! ;) Loves...

  21. Sweet! Now put some greedy ones on your list for the birthday girl!! :)

  22. Jenn--Thanks! Yay! LOL! I'm glad ya'll are excited because it's just dawned on me 32 wishes is a lot!

    Kimberly--LOLOL! OMGosh! I have been laughing for like ten minutes straight! You are such a brat! LOL! Whew! That cracked me up! LOL! Hello? Didn't you figure that out when my sister came to stay in Portugal with us and she was your age!?! LOLOL! I love it!

    Angie--GREEDY? LOL! I totally thought they WERE!! Between you and Kasie i'm shaking my head in bafflement...! LOL! Seriously. Ok gonna try harder in my next post! LOL! ????
