Happy Birthday Jamie!!



Today is my bestie's birthday! Let's all take a moment and sing please!
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday beautiful Jamie....
Happy Birthday to you!!!!!
I know I talk about her a lot on here but just to give you a little background info. Jamie and I met in 2003...whoa...when I moved back to DFW for school and got a job at a local breakfast joint called The Snooty Pig. I dont know if I have ever told her this but I totally thought she was going to be a bitch. I know...I know. She was a student at TCU and from everything I had heard (isnt that terrible) THOSE girls were awful. I kept my guard up for approximately 5 minutes until I realized she was 100% awesome and we were so freaking alike it was scary! Snooty Pig was a fun job. We had some good times and some good laughs and ate a lot of supposed low fat muffins!

When it was time for us to spread our wings and leave Snooty Pig, I was TERRIFIED we were going to loose touch. We didnt live close. We didnt go to the same school. I just prayed we could keep our friendship going. Many a morning phone call, a lunch date, and a google chat conversation later...we are still going strong and today...in honor of her day...I would like to give you 27 reasons as to why she is so great!
1. She is hilarious.
2. She loves loves LOVES dogs.
 3. She is smart (she is now Dr. Jamie! Like for reals!)
4. She is a ridiculously good listener, especially when I need to vent.
5. She understands my craziness.
6. She is extremely generous in every aspect of her life.
7. She loves...I mean LOVES the shit out of our kid.
8. She is forgiving.
9. She always knows how to make me feel better about a situation.
10. You would never believe some of the stuff that comes out of her mouth.
11. She is an avid crock pot user.
12. Did I mention that she LOVES dogs?
13. She is always up for giving me advice.
14. Despite being gorgeous and skinny...she isnt afraid of cheese.
15. She always has a way of making me feel good about myself.
16. Did I mention she LOVES our kid?
17. Even though it was years and years ago, we can still get to talking about our Snooty Pig days and crack ourselves up! (And yes...if you happen to be a regular anywhere...they talk about you)
18. She is a devoted wife.
19. She is never afraid to try something new.
20. She has AMAZING hair. (I know...superficial...but it really is beautiful)
21. She isnt afraid of discovering new things about her.
22. She threw me the most awesome baby shower EVER.
23. She didnt judge me when I threw up on the way home from dinner and then fell asleep at like 8:30PM the night of my bachlorette party.
24. She writes the most AMAZING blog ever! http://www.avantgardeparenting.com/
25. There is never a lull in our conversations.
26. All of the women in her wedding were red heads.
27. She just gets me. In a way that sometimes I feel like no one else does.
Jamie...I hope you have an amazing day. I love you more than you know and I look forward to our days of growing old and sitting on a porch (we may have to go find one somewhere...hope the owners dont mind) and laughing and chatting about all that we have gone through together. Thank you for being you and thank you for loving me and my family.
Happy Birthday Jamie!
