Thursday Thirteen # 14

Graphic courtesy of Emily
Thirteen things about Karen on August 24th!
  1. It's my Birthday! It's my Birthday! It's my Birthday! Hey, y'all, did you hear, it's my BIRTHDAY??!!
  2. I love this graphic of the purse! It's so totally a purse that I would own! Maybe. For. My BIRTHDAY!
  3. I love birthdays! Not just my own, although, you already know that. But I love other's birthdays too. They are the BEST reason for a party! Speaking of parties...
  4. I LOVE Parties!!! I have in my mind of what I want my big birthday next year to look like. It probably won't be anything like it, but I have already warned Jeremy that I want a huge party. Got it girls?
  5. I was born 8 days after Elvis died. Sad, huh? My mom said she was laying on the couch waiting for me to come when she heard the news. She kept the newspaper from that day which had a tribute to him.
  6. I was named Karen since that was the only name my dad liked during the nine months. My middle name is a combination of my grandparents.
  7. I am going to work today, even though I think it should be a rule that you don't have to work on your birthday. However, I am taking Friday off.
  8. I remember my 8th birthday party like it was yesterday. I had a spend the night party and some of the girls from my neighborhood came, as well as some of the girls from school.
  9. I also remember my 16th birthday party! It was completely an all about me party and just about everyone I knew showed up for that party! It was incredible.
  10. I celebrated my 24th birthday at Turner Field. My grandfather got inducted to the Braves Hall of Fame on that day! Awesome, huh?
  11. Jeremy and I celebrated our birthdays a few years ago at the rotating restaurant in Atlanta, known as the Sundial.
  12. So, in honor of my birthday, are you going to sign and leave a comment for me? Isn't that selfish? Yep, but who cares, because...
  13. IT's MY BIRTHDAY! IT's MY BIRTHDAY! IT's MY BIRTHDAY! IT's MY BIRTHDAY!

Wow, Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day, and a great weekend. We have "the birthday rules" around our house - if your birthday falls on a Thursday-Monday, you get all weekend to celebrate :)

That's very cool about your grandfather being inducted into the Hall of Fame; we're Braves fans around here!
