Friday Confessions


On Wednesday, I was visiting Andrea's blog - My Chihuahua Bites
and she was discussing 
(That's a live link, if you want to click on it and read.)   
She said that she had unrealistic ideas about what her first kiss was supposed to be like...unrealistic ideas about what love was supposed to be like.  Her first kiss was not what "romance novels are made of"  She said that in fact it was, and I quote, "gross".  Andrea considers her first REAL First Kiss to be with her first true love, at night, in the church parking lot.  

You're probably wondering where the confession part comes in.  
Well, I'm about to tell you.

After reading Andrea's posts, it got me to thinking about my first kiss...es.  It kind of took me back and I reminisced for a moment.  I thought to myself,
 "yeah, I remember kissing so-and-so in the church parking lot...
oh, and then there was so-and-so on the church van...
OH yeah, and so-and-so in the church baptistery." 

Holy geez.  What was I thinking?

So, confession #1 is...
I have spent a large amount of my life at church...and I kissed a lot of boys while I was there.

Confession #2 is...
Michael came up to me last week and said "somebody is turning the big double 3eeeeee soon."  I told him that I would not know who that would be, because I am going to be 32.  He just laughed.  He thought I was joking.  I was not.  I was totally serious.  Somewhere, somehow, I lost a whole flippin' year.  Where did 32 go?  I could have sworn I was only 31.  Dang it.

Confession #3...
I think birthdays are definitely something to be celebrated. 
*said in my best Edward Cullen impersonation*
(skip to 0:23 and ignore the German footnotes...concentrate on the vampire)
I'm just not an over-celebrator.  
My husband on the other-hand is in this category.  
He thinks his birthday should be celebrated ALL week.  
It's Michaelpalooza!!!!  
Everybody party!!!!
WOOHOO!!!

I'm just a girl who appreciates one more year 
and a few nice gifts or cards or money is nice 
(money is so nice)...
or Gold Tickets to the Dallas Twilight Convention...
achem...
just an example, 
but I'm not an over-celebrator.

Babe, if you're reading this, 
know that I love you...
and your birthday week!  
Happy Michaelpalooza!

Are you an over-celebrator?
What was your first kiss like?
Gross?
Magical?

Hope you all have a fabulous Friday♥
*muah* ;)

Oh my goodness! You are such a baby. I am 34. I hope we can still be friends : )

Happy Birthweek to your Michael :) Maybe he will get lucky and get gold tickets to your twilight convention. How fun would that be? : )

I remember the first time and it made my stomach turn. Seriously. I was thinking, 'holy cow, I have to share so many of this persons germs. GROSS ME OUT'

I sort of got over it : )

33? Are you kidding? I'm 40! I wouldn't have even known you in high school! :)

I think birthdays are the one time of year you get to celebrate YOU. Everyone should have cake and someone to make a big deal over them. It's important. Over-celebrating is a GOOD thing.

Love you, Jenny. You are such a super girl! :)

I had the same conversation about my age and lost a year...I seriously thought I was 32, but I'm 33. Sigh. My first kiss was awkward, with a boy who soon went to prison...I sure know how to pick 'em. I am an over-celebrator but I seem to be the only one celebrating :( I hope you have a great birthday with lots of Twilight love & gifts.

Lol - I remember my friend and I would write notes back and forth in church on the envelopes for donations- mostly about boys =D I also just got in the "over 30 club" I try to celebrate my B-day as much as possible -trying to get out of chores- and who doesn't like a good party and gifts ;)
Hope you have a Happy Birthday!!

Mom Mayhem says: said...

Or maybe I should say Happy Birthday to your husband :)

Im so not a birthday celebrator for myself. I like to do the kids parties of course and love to celebrate my hubs bday...but my own? Eh

I am not a birthday over-celebrator, but I am a Christmas/Thanksgiving over-celebrator. And I am definitely a Christmas over-decorator. Happy birthday to Michael.

Any first kisses I had with other boys were forgettable and/or gross ('cuz you don't know what the heck is going on in jr high) but I definitely remember my 1st kiss with HH. I was 15. Outside of the gym after school. Sigh.

Hi jenny!

Your blog looks great!! What a fun post. I am having a birthday too and I also wonder where the past year has gone. It went by way too fast. But I would love to be 33 again - lol!

My first kiss was gross!!!

My first kiss was on the dance floor at the high school Howdy dance. Howdy. :)
Only kissed two boys in high school though - and only once with each of them.
How about that?!

MiMi said...

I hope your hubs had a WONDERFUL day on his birthday and I love your new design! :)
