Yesterday and today were two very important days....

Dad's birthday was on the 26th...we had the best family party, mexican theme complete w/festive decor, margaritas, delicious cuisine, pinning the tail on the donkey and even a pinata!

Here's Dad opening presents, surrounded by the Z's...

Mikey takes his turn with the pinata..... And then all the "kids" dove in after the candy (yes, that's Jeff!).

The top 3 things I love about my dad are:

  • He's the most generous person I know (he takes us all on trips all the time)
  • He always wants to know everything about me and my life
  • He never missed a game or a concert! :)

Too bad he won't ever read this so he'll never know all these nice things that I've said about him. :( Love you Dad!

And now for birthday #2: Today is Jill's birthday!! It's sad to not be able to celebrate w/her but she'll be here this weekend and I can't wait to see her!!

This is Jill and Caroline this past November...aren't they pretty? My beautiful blonde bombshells!

Top 3 moments with Jill:
  • Florida the first time--the beach, the diet coke, the Tiger Beat, the concert (sigh)
  • Greyhound trip to NYC--hello kitty cd player, no sleep, the press conference, seeing our boys again.....what an amazing weekend! wait--that was actually a Tuesday! :)
  • Our walk last Sept when I was in DC--good scenery, good exercise and great conversation!
  • ok there's one more--the Italian restaurant in Georgetown right after you volunteered at Earth day. hahahaha

Happy Birthday Jill! I love you!

Lastly, but not leastly, today is also Lori's birthday! Here she is in all her birthday glory!! You might recognize her from some of my business trip postings--we are on the same team so we work closely all the time. I'm so lucky to have such awesome coworkers! Lori is always happy, kind and fun & easy to talk to! Hope your b-day was awesome Lola! ;)

I'm so sorry you missed the party. It would have been so much more fun to have you, Jill and Caroline doing a BSB number together!! Can you imagine?!?!

Happy Birthday Bishop, I mean, you are old, but look great!

Happy Birthday to Jill from her fan club! (yes, you have a fan club, just ask Shannon, she thinks we are weird) Have a great birthday!
