FUN Friday

Belated. This is what happens when I start posts early...I forget to check the post options and actually give them a date. Oops!

WARNING: Strong language. But it's so worth it.

I wish I had the courage to do something fun and crazy like this. When I was in high school maybe, but not now.

The original Footloose music video

We celebrated another year of my life tonight. As I got toward the end of my 20s, birthdays depressed me. Now, I love them. Love. Because I have lost friends way too young. Every year is a gift and I've learned to be thankful for them. I spent the evening in the company of the best of friends. Lily thought the party was for her. She was hilarious with her enthusiastic greeting of the guests at the door. But they were here for ME! I am very blessed. You wouldn't believe how far these wonderful will drive to celebrate with me. Special, special people. And we had delicious food. Three words, my friends - Red velvet cheesecake. Oh yum. So yum!

Off to bed, then a hike in the morning and Sunday football. Weekends don't get any better than this.

Did I mention the red velvet cheesecake?

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!


  1. Oh, Jennie, you find the best videos. 'And here's some footage of congress./ Yes, I see that.' Excellent broadcasting, just really good stuff there.

    And Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a good day, and are having a good weekend.

  2. Happy Birthday!!! So glad you had a lovely night with friends. Seriously, it must have been soaked in magic--with a full moon like that shining on you all. :) Hope your next year is just as magical.

    LOVE the news clip. And LOVE Footloose! Such great videos to make our Sunday mornings rock!

  3. thanks for that middle video, I don't know who that guy was but he was great and he made me smile this Sunday morning. Thanks!

  4. Belated happy birthday!!! You are still really young. Just enjoy those birthdays.

  5. Happy Belated Birthday!!!

    I loved the Footloose video! I wish I could have been there with my headphones in joining him!!!

  6. Happy early birthday! (Not till the 22nd, right?) I will wish you happy birthday again on the actual day. :)

    Okay, so here's the deal. If you and I are ever in a Target together, we will dance like the YouTube guy. Because life is short, and did you see his face? PURE JOY. And the world needs more of that, I think. :)

  7. Okay, just watched the second video and BALLED. Like Jennifer Hiller said--that guy's face is pure joy. Want it. Need it. Gonna go get me some of it. :) Thank you for posting it!

  8. Those were all awesome! Man, do I love dancing!!
