MY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Thanks everyone for the sweet Christmas wishes! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Today is my birthday!

To celebrate, I thought I would show you Jennifer Fabulous Through the Years. Hahahaha!


I was a chubby baby. I'm now chubby again. I have come full circle.



Even at three years old, I loved to talk on the phone. I haven't changed a bit.



I've had that cabbage patch doll since before I was born. Even at seven, I never let her out of my sight.



In the years leading up to middle school, I got more awkward. I want to jump in this photo and warn myself.



Middle school was a living hell for me. All of the sudden, I was an unnattractive dork who got locked in the girls' locker room by the cheerleaders.



In high school, it was payback time. The same girls who made fun of me in middle school wanted to be my friend. The boys who had called me names asked me out. (I'm not kidding, it was like a 1998 teen movie). It gave me great pleasure to tell them hell no.



In college, I spent two years dressed like a beatnik and the other two years dressed like a hippie. I miss those days.



...and Jennifer Fabulous, today!! Yay!

Now I'm off to go be lazy and eat pink champagne cake until I'm obese! (I'll be bitching about the inevitable weight gain in the near future, I promise). But for now, I just don't give a damn! XOXO!

Happy Birthday Jen!!!

I love all the pictures you've chosen! The one where you're talking on the phone is so adorable. And the one where you have braces reminds me of myself in middle school! I was a total dork too! :D

Anyway, enjoy your champagne and have a great day! <3

Happy Birthday! I hope you had a good one! My husband has a holiday birthday so I hope that you got plenty of presents despite your birth being so close to Christmas. I know how he feels about that :)

I don't know if you ever saw the series I did on my blog about my childhood, but if you have a second and would like to see that you were a much more beautiful child than some others (i.e. me) you should check it out.

I loved this through the ages post. You were sooooo cute as a child. I just want to pinch your cheeks. Your awkward years are much less awkward than mine!

Imogen said...

Happy birthday. I love you. I really enjoyed this post. One of my favourite things to do is to look at old pictures and yours are amazing. You were such a sweet, attractive and beautiful girl and it's not surprising you have become so fabulous now. I must say that I had a similar experience in middle school and a lot of what you have written about that time is what I felt too.
