Happy Birthday Mandy! So here's a question for you: If you like the smell of tires, do you enjoy eating pizza at Costco right by the tire section? You get to smell those tire fumes while eating your pizza! Only curious because I complain about it everytime I'm ething there. Hope you have a fun night with your family!

Ashley said...

What fun to read! Thanks for sharing. And I hope you had a great birthday! It was great fun reading those things about you. I'm with Jill...I don't think I could think of that many things! Way to go! Happy Birthday!!!!

Matilda said...

Happy Birthday!!

Great list! Although...I think you cheated a little... ;)

I hate dirty hands. So I wash my hands alot, and then they are dry, which I hate too. I hate when I can SEE the dryness, more than feel it!

Oh, and I think you're amaing too!! :)

dana said...

I knoq I am late on this (cause of the move) but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!
iSN'T so exciting to be 30 (kinda feels alot like 29 to me) I hope you day was great and I loved your list.

Jeni said...

Happy Birthday! That was really fun to read, several of them could be for me too! I don't know if I could do that, I would have to think really hard. I forgot you had to go back to work after you had the boys. Wow! You are amazing, and I hope you are around more than just 30 more years! :-)

I usually don't like reading those, I usually get kinda bored--but I couldn't wait to read them all! That was so interesting! I learned a lot about you! You are so cute! I think it is so cute that Tyler was your first and only boyfriend! Tyler had glasses at an early age too--talk about meant to be! I am dumb, I know! :) That was really fun though! Oh and I have a few solutions for you: move to FL and you won't have dry hands, talk Jeni into moving there and you will be by her :), Holden will become an excellent swimmer and surfer! And you can conquer your fear of water! Ok, I just want us all to move there! :)
