It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

No it’s not Christmas, it’s my birthday. That’s right, I’m celebrating the eighth anniversary of my 30th birthday and I must say I’m feeling pretty good.

For those of you who used to visit me at Wifey’s House you might remember my goal of fitting into a bikini on my birthday. Well, I’m pleased to say that I’m rocking a tankini with ease and that’s about all the “ini” I need right now. I do still feel a bikini in my future and I’m sure I’ll get there – one day – during my 38th year.

In the meantime, I’ll spare you the bathing suit pics but will share this one …



Yup, that’s me on the left – about thirty-something years ago – with my favorite sister (yes, she's my only sister, but if she wasn't she'd still be my favorite), Nicole.

I know … I must be getting old; my children were amazed we had cameras back then.

Winks & Smiles,

Aw, you and your sister were adorable little girls. And you, Dear Wife, are a beautiful woman. Looking at your profile picture, it's hard for me to imagine that your body isn't already in bikinitastic shape already--I mean, you are GORGEOUS and look very fit.

Regardless, I know we women can be a bit hard on ourselves so good luck with getting the shape you feel necessary to rock a sexy bikini on the beach this summer. :-)

Hugs ~ Sandy

I personally believe that the Bikini Body is all about confidence....girl you know you have been at the beach where someone is wearing a bikini and "SHOULD NOT" be wearing one....so, you can go with my theory on your Birthday...There is ALWAYS someone who looks better and someone who looks worse....Get that confidence to not the Tankini and ROCK the Bikini!!!!! =)

Love you and your sisters hair!!! Adorable. Don't you wonder how our moms did all that awesome stuff back then?

Now in the pics i've see of your daughter, you looked just like her as a little girl. What cute girls you were and what beauties you have become. Happy Birthday

Now let's see, if you've turned 30 eight times, that makes you something like 240???? Did they really have cameras back then???
