John's Birthday Party Recap

John's big 30th birthday party this past Saturday was a lot of fun. There was a lot of prep involved, in fact I took a half day on Friday to get ready (and to pick up my bridesmaid dress for Julie's wedding).

On Thursday night Julie came over and helped me make popcorn balls (I'll post the recipe later, they were yummy and SUPER easy to make!)


Friday night John and I worked on our ticket booth guy


I also started work on John's presents. I decided to do 30 gifts for 30, about half were made up of a coupon book I made for him.


All of the coupons were clean. There wasn't anything naughty in there.


Then I filled this trash can (he's been wanting a new container for the dog food for awhile) with all the things I got him.


It's the coupon book, 2 beers that he likes, some Hawaiian coffee and a coffee grinder, 2 Spurs tickets, the dog food container and a scoop, Reese's peanut butter cups, and 3 lotto tickets. There was also a T-Shirt, but I gave it to him early so he could wear it to the party. I'll give you a cookie if you were someone not at the party and can identify what the T-shirt design is from.

John's brother and his family were the first to arrive. Matt helped get the bounce house set up. That thing was HEAVY! Thanks Matt and thank Greg for helping put it up and take it down.


While this wasn't on the party agenda, Matt and the girls had fun with it!


The girls could not WAIT to get into the bounce house though


The kids at the party bounced for 2 hours straight! I have NO IDEA how they managed it!


Then it got late and the kids had to start getting home. We decided it was time for the pinata! After the kids all had a round we let John go at it since it was his birthday.


You DO NOT want to get in the way of kids and pinata toys and candy!


Then it was time for cake and presents!


30 candles can put off a LOT of heat!


I think this is John's favorite coupon


Throughout the night we had some dress up going on





We also played a few games of Twister


and pin the tale on the Donkey



We also made it into the bounce house


Only it was really hard work bouncing


We weren't very good at it and after about 30 minutes tops were were all exhausted.


Not sure how those kids did it for 2 hours!

At the end of the night Karl entertained us with a little song and dance that John joined in on.


The party was great fun and to end this post, here's a fun picture of the birthday boy.

Happy Birthday to My Husband

Here's to the Big 3-0!

While I joke with him that he's so old now he does stuff like fall asleep at weddings,

He's really a steal the camera and take silly pictures

Light saber playing

Frodo costume wearing

Guy that proposes to his girlfriend on his birthday type of person

and that's why I love him. Happy Birthday babe!

Bits and Pieces

This was the post I had originally planned on writing until John dropped the "You've had 2 1/2 glasses of wine and only have a few more days for you to be with a 29 year old" gem on me.

Yes, my husband reads my blog. Sometimes I'm bothered by it. He says if he didn't read it he would have no clue what's going on with me. I tell him I'd tell him things if he'd ever give me the chance to get a word in now and then. (Not really) My complaint is that sometimes I need to vent on here and feel like I can't because his sister reads it, I've heard his mother reads it, my friends' mothers read it, my brothers read it, my parents sometimes read it and then he reads it. His response was, "Well call Julie and talk to her about it!" While I'm sure all the people listed above know that not every marriage is perfect bliss I'm sure his sister and my brothers don't want to hear about our sex life while his mom would be doing a little dance because if we're having sex that means we're practicing for her future grandbabies. Then if there was some sort of problem, my friend's mothers would be calling my friends who would be calling me and saying, "so my mom just read such and such on your blog and wanted to make sure that everything was ok" and next thing I know the Mormons would have somehow discovered my blog and I would have the Missionaries on my door ready to do some marriage counseling and the Relief Society ladies bearing casseroles and this would all be because I wrote on my blog that I wouldn't have sex with John because I had only had TWO glasses of wine and not THREE and how DARE he not follow the new ABCD rule that I just learned.

My husband does know that I write funny things that he says or does on here. In fact that video down below? He said, "let me see it" and since I had just posted it and wanted to see it on the blog I went to pull it up and he said, "Ugh. I have to go to the BLOG to see it?" Duuude. Sorry I didn't just drop it onto your computer through our network! It's so much work to hit favorites and then The Adventures of Faith. Geez.

There are a few things that are a little off limits on here. Like, John gets mad when I talk about his "junk" even though all of our friends already know about it just like I know about all of their guy's "junk." I guess talking about it to a bunch of internet people is a little much.

I've suggested to John that he write a little something on here every now and then and he gets all weirded out that people will think he's stupid and I'm all DUDE! Did you not see the post I just did with your little dance? They already know! I think that he thinks if he writes something bad about me I might kill him. And he would be right. Although if you want to hear from the man himself I bet he would be tickled pink if you left a comment telling him so. You all know he reads this here thing so he'll see them. I'll even take a picture of him being all tickled pink.

To continue on the John topic, his birthday party was a lot of fun. A recap of the celebration is to come. We had a birthday dinner tonight with his mom and step-dad and we're not sure what we're doing tomorrow night since he has a union meeting he has to go to. They finally settled their contract, but need to vote on it so it's just a teensy bit important. Especially since with the new contract all the temporary full times are made permanent which was our major concern.

On Wednesday night we're going to the Season Opener of the Spurs. Go Spurs Go! They play the Hornets so it'll be a great game.

I got my dress in for Julie's wedding. It's a tad bit big in the boobage area (which is like a first for me). I'm going to chalk it up to the 6.2 pounds that I have lost thank you very much. I must have lost 3 in one boob and 3 in the other because it certainly did not come off my ass.

I haven't been to the gym in 3 weeks. 3 weeks! I think the most I may have missed was a week. 1 week since I joined in February. That's pretty hardcore if I do say so myself. I need to get back, but it's just been crazy around here lately.

I finally updated the On My Nightstand tab up there. I did that so I could be better and think I have only gotten worse. Oh well.

My Fantasy Football team is SUCKING. I've been bumped down to number 4 in my league. UGH! I finally got all my injured guys back and what do they do? They SUCK! Bunch of freaking losers. I need to start playing the crappy teams in my league again so I can feel better about myself.

My favorite ice cream place called me last week to let me know they have my favorite flavor of ice cream in. It's vanilla fudge maraschino and it is A-MAZ-ING. And yes, I put myself down on the Must Call When Favorite Flavor of Ice Cream is in Stock. I've been on that list for 6 months. I didn't want to go home before turning right back around and meeting John's parents for dinner so I went and had some. Then John and I went to pick up a couple of pints of it after dinner. It's sad when the teenage kid behind the counter looks and you and says, "Weren't you here a couple of hours ago?" Way to let my secret out kid!

For your amusement I leave you with another Conversation with John and for his sake it's one that makes me look bad:
**our neighbor is the guy 3 doors down that has been kicked out of the house and now hangs out in the garage - with the door open - drinking beer and yelling at whatever is on the television**

Me: How dare someone else on our street have a party the same day that we're having a party.
John: Yeah and it's got to be drunk guy next door. Look. They even parked in his yard.
Me: I hate that that guy is our neighbor.
John: You would hate anyone that was our neighbor. If Mother Teresa was our neighbor you'd hate her.
Me: Well yeah, there'd be homeless people everywhere. I rather have the drunk guy than the homeless people. Freaking Mother Teresa bringing all these homeless people into the neighborhood.

Conversations with John

I had a couple other posts in mind, but decided that John's given me some good material that I need to share. In fact, John has mentioned once, "sometimes I like to say funny things so that I can make the blog."

John: You want to do anything tonight?
Me: Nah.
John: I might go play my new video game if that's alright with you.
Me: Yeah, that's fine. I can move all my stuff into the bedroom instead of the living room.
**walk to living room to retrieve glass of wine and cell phone**
John: You've had a glass of wine?
Me: Yeah. I've actually had 2. **goes to refill glass**
**A few minutes later John walks into room**
Me: Hi
John: **sits on bed** I just wanted to come in and say hi.
Me: Ok
John: so whatcha doing?
Me: Ummm...watching shows and downloading pictures...
John: That's cool. **rubs my back**
Me: thought since I had 2 glasses of wine you could come in here and get lucky?
John: **keeps rubbing back** Is that what you think?
Me: Well, we had already parted ways for the night and the only thing that's changed is you finding out I've had 2 glasses of wine so, I'm just calling it as I see it.
John: You're not horny?
Me: No. Besides, it's not like it's your actual birthday yet.
John: Well you know, you've only got a few more days to sleep with a 29 year old...

Weight Loss

Last Saturday was the end of the first month on Weight Watchers. It was only the 3rd meeting I had been to though. My first week I lost 4.3 pounds! Go me! I missed the next week, but at my 3rd meeting I lost another pound for a total of 5.3 pounds!

It actually hasn't been too difficult. I've been eating out less which has been a BIG help. Yes I miss gossiping with my two coworkers, but I've gotten some great reading done and end up gossiping with the coworkers that slum it in the breakroom instead.

I admit that I have been HORRIBLE at tracking. Horrible. As in I've probably only tracked a few days in the past month. I'm lucky that I lost those 5.3 pounds because tracking is important with WW. I've been doing the whole counting in my head thing, but know that I'm not tracking everything that I put in my mouth. So my goal for next month is another 5 pounds and to track me.

I also dug up this picture from a wedding I attended in January.

It's me at probably my heaviest. I'm not the type to go and stick "fat" pictures of myself on the fridge or anything like that. I'm not even the type of person that thinks, "Oh, I'm so fat." Do I have my "fat" days? You bet! Don't we all? This picture though, it's one of the first times I saw a picture of myself and said, I look fat. So I'm not doing WW because, OMG I'm so fat!, I'm doing it because I want to be healthier, I want to shop my closet again, and I better lose this weight now than when my thyroid really decides to go absolutely screwy on me.

The Bachelorette Party

Saturday was Julie's last fling before the ring! I got up early and started doing all the running around in order to get ready for the party. This included picking up our giant 15 passenger van.


That is the creepiest smile ever on my face. I think it was part fear, part I want to smile because I don't want to show the fear of driving this monster on the highway, part oh crap, I have no makeup on and someone is taking my picture, and the final part was smile, but don't take your eyes off the road.

Survived the drive home and then it was time for penis cookies!


Next thing I know people were showing up, devouring all the food (which we somehow didn't seem to make a dent in)


and then it was time for the passion party.


Let's just say it was very interesting, hilarious, and there were lots of things to make you smile


Then it was time to break the penis pinata!


That sucker was hard (hehe)


and we ended up beating it on the ground.

Then we all piled into the van and took off to Pat O's! Here's the group of us that went out:


We got our drinks and headed to the piano lounge where lots of penis fun occurred:


The bride and her bridesmaids!

We had to get our bachelorette on stage.


They sang her the Pussy Cat song and as people gave her more money, the song got dirtier. Here's a video of the beginning and therefore "cleanest" part:

There was a sleeping man at our table.


Lesson 1: Do not fall asleep at a bar. Lesson 2: Do not fall asleep in a piano bar because the singers will make fun of you. Lesson 3: Do not fall asleep in a piano bar near a group of bachelorettes. You WILL get molested in your sleep by a giant penis.


Then the cops will come and take you away, but not until they let the bachelorettes molest you some more with their giant penis.

After this we headed upstairs for some dancing. Of course the first song is the one for that dance that I still don't do.


Then it was Julie running around to that catchy Miley Cyrus song, Party in the USA.


Next thing I knew I was doing the shopping cart in a circle of people with some dude.



We shut the bar down and decided to go to a strip club. It didn't exactly work out, but we did end up in a Whataburger where I was humped and then picked up by some drunk military guy. This required our gigantic driver Matt to come in and rescue me. (Thanks Matt!)

Then it was home where we met up with the guys. I quickly passed out on the living room floor until I decided I'd had enough and ran to worship the porcelain god. Yeah. It was not pretty. I haven't gotten sick since my work Christmas party 3 years ago (we're a bunch of winos). Before that it was probably sometime in college. I felt like absolute shit all day on Sunday. I spent a lot of time sitting on the kitchen and living room floors because I couldn't make the round trip from the kitchen to my bedroom. No amount of Whataburger, left over Chinese food, water and aspirin made me feel better. I sucks being old! You just can't hang like you used to and when you try, the next day isn't pretty. Remember when you could drink all day, pop two aspirin, sleep until 2 and be just fine? Not anymore. Plus in some cruel joke, your old body doesn't allow you to sleep in like you used to either.
