Sixteen [plus 10] Candles!

Summer Birthdays. So not fun in Elementary school because I never got to have a bday party in the classroom. The teacher would always let the birthday kid walk in the front of the line. But miss Jula? NEVER. Get to the back of the line missy!


Even tougher in Highschool.. I used to be so jealous of my friends having their bdays in the spring, when I had to wait until the middle of the summer. They got to get their license before me, then got to buy ciggies before me (which they never did, and neither did i- but the fact that they COULD..)
Well now I do appreciate being a few months younger, but I will miss a few things.

  • signing birthday cards to friends "From your 25 yr old friend, Julie!"
  • referring to myself as Gus' "young 25 yr old wife"

  • Checking the 20-25 yrs old box.


What I WON'T miss is renewing the license. 5 more years til I have to deal with that crap again.

The hubs surprised me with the best.present.ever. He gave me this pretty Blue Topaz ring after dinner on Saturday night! What girl doesn't love her some jewelry? And bless his heart he knew I didn't want a Ruby even though its my birthstone (figured the blue stone will somehow make my hand look more tan? Yep that sounds correct)...

WARNING: moving week = no manicured fingers. I feel completely naked.Plus I get to have a nice dinner with the family tonite after work, before the chaos of moving kicks in. I'll be packing up the computer so unfortunately, the JQ Lounge will be a little scattered this week(no worries though- the Verizon Fios guy is coming to our house on August 1st). Plus my MACBOOK CHARGER arrived! woo hooo $45 saved by ordering a non Mac cord.

i remember when JulieQ had birthday "month" not just one day. I used to try so hard to make your birth-day special and find the friends who were not gone for the summer. We used to have great parties up in Harvard, that is what I remember the most...Hope this day is as special as all the other birthdays.
love mom
See you and the gang for dinner later gator...
