About Me

I am a crazy woman, funny and carefree but type A and anal all at the same time. I have two daughters and a Father who's a King...what more do I need?! My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

Birthday Ramblings

Ok ladies, tell me what you think. I'll be 33 tomorrow and tonight is Friday night, so my munchkins and I are gonna do something together tonight and then we're doing some extended family going-out-to-dinner-stuff tomorrow night. I've been told (by some who acted like they were joking but I'm not sure) about how sad that is; "poor Jen is single so she has to go out with her kids." I disagree! My kids are so much fun now it's like they're my girlfriends; they're old enough to enjoy shopping, they're good in restaurants, and they make me laugh. Is that so bad?! Second, I've been told (by the same people) that I tend to be intimidating to men, I'm "too confident" blah blah blah and that's perhaps why I don't have a date for my birthday. What?! I'm supposed to pretend to be needy so some guy with low self esteen can muster up the courage to ask me out, all so I can feel "good about myself" that I have a date for my birthday?! I'd rather hang out with my kids.

Wow! You have some good friends sharing some lots of advice! OR full of opinions one. he...he... I don't think it's sad. B-days are a family deal anyway! I spend every b-day with my kids. And if a guy isn't attracted to your confident and strong personality then he's not the one for you anyway!!

And let's be honest, you've had offers...just none of them meet your criteria. You have high standards and there's nothing wrong with that. Happy Birthday!!

Great attitude, great wisdom, and great boundaries for you and your girls!! I would rather you hang out with your kids too! Such a good example you are setting for them and for women all over the world. I am so proud of you!! I always tell everyone that I talk to about you that you are truly a unique and amazing woman.

I hope you had a wonderful and blessed birthday! And I think it is great that you share it with your girls. I have always had dinner with my children on their birthdays and my birthdays and I would like to keep that tradition going!

While I am here and since it is too late to call and since you are the party planner: Do you know anyone who does cakes that can take a picture and put it on a cake? Ya know what I mean, like make the pic a part of the icing. Not sure how they do that, but I have seen a cake like that and I just wondered if you knew anyone because I need a cake like that.

thanks guys! i did have fun: my mom, sis and bro, and the 3 little ones went to olive garden for a 2 1/2 hour eating extravaganza! plus i got giftcards, a check, a chick-flick complete with new teddy bear (aw), a new copier/scanner for my computer, 2 cakes, and roses from assorted family members and girlfriends:) and it all started with my hannah singing happy birthday at 7:45 am, while i was still asleep, from our hallway. with all that, who needs a boyfriend?!

Tammy,
There are special printers with edible ink that they use to make those cake photo thingies, and they're really expensive, so not many private residences have them. I know that bakeries do, though, and I wonder if they might charge you a little bit to print out the photo for you, and you can just slap it on your own cake?
