Yeah! I think I am the first of your 44 today!
(I bet you get more than 44, but it won't make you older)
Happy Birthday Jen.
I wish you a great day with your family and a fantastic year to come.
I agree...everyone needs to be fussed over on their special day, especially Moms!
happy happy happy day to you!


Happy Birthday!

And I'm not even a lurker - this is my first visit - because I keep seeing your name around. Good luck getting 44 comments.


Happy Birthday! I hope it's a peaceful, exciting, productive, healthy year!


Da-da-da-da-da-da-dum! (boom, boom, boom)
That's just my rendition of the opening of your Beatles song...
Happy Birthday!
I'm lovin' the dippity-do picture, but I have to admit, your current hairstyle is better. :)

The Introvert

Happy Birthday, Controlly McController!

Happy, Happy Bday!!

Monika van Hoeve

Van Harte Gefeliciteerd! Congratulations in Dutch, how is that for a change? Enjoy your day.


Have a wonderful, happy Birthday! I am so glad your family makes it special for you. I love my birthday!
Have a wonderful day.


Grattis paa Foedelsedagen. Congratulations in Swedish (the double vowel and diphtong saves you getting a bunch of squiggleys instead of letters!)
Enjoy your day!


Delurking to wish you a very happy 44th!


Happy Birthday! I twittered about your 44th, hope it helps!


Happy birthday! You know what I say (and I'm OLDER than you so listen up) "I feel exactly the same as I did when I was twenty one; I just have more money and better hair!"


I see that foreign language sentiments are in order, so I'll add
Herzliche Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!

Or, as we have been known to sing:
Happy Birthday to you
Marmalade im Schuh!

...but not those cute new red ones! :)

Smalltown Mom

Happy Birthday!

We sing this at school:

Today, today, today, today
Today is Jenn's birthday!
Today, today, today, today
Today is Jenn's birthday!
It's not the pickle's or the pear's,
It's not the elephant's or the bear's.
Today, today, today, today
Today is Jenn's birthday!


That cake looks yummy! My family always treats me right on my birthday. Happy Birthday to you! Hope you meet your goal.

Happy Birthday - If you use the little keyboard cleaner air cans - you may even get all those candels at once.

Many many more are wished for you.

Janet (FondofSnape) sent me over to wish you a very happy birthday!! Have a wonderful day and weekend too!!



Thanks for your kind words on my Army wife posts, they seem to be everyone's favorites. I have a few more if you're interested!


Happy Birthday, you spring chicken, you! I turn 45 in a couple of months.

Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Jen
Happy birthday to you

good job you can't hear quite how out of tune that was!
I hope they gather and spoil you beyond your wildest dreams.


Happy Birthday. You are only two years older than me. My husband also threw me a surprise 40th birthday party. Both of us are obviously married to a couple of really fabulous guys!

I'm also posting a link to this on my blog to try to direct some traffic over this way.

Here's to one of your best years ever!


Happy Birthday! It's awesome that your family looks out for you on your special day.

Thanks for stopping by. Hey, lay off the laundry for today, eh? :-)


Ha - ppy Birthday, Happy happy birthday, Ha -- ppy Birthday, Happy Birthday HEY!

(That was supposed to be a song. I can hear it in my head, but it doesn't quite translate to the computer keyboard.)

Enjoy. Is that your "purdy" cake? It looks delicious. What cake doesn't?


Happy Birthday! :)

Good thing your birthday wasn't yesterday - Brit Lit test on your birthday wouldn't be so fun.

Happy 44th!

Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great one.


Happy Birthday Again!

Love the baby picture.

Here's to the big 44.

David Poirier

I love your blog.
Oh and Happy Birthday. (belated)

Mary Alice

oh my gosh you're almost to 44....oh wait....I just put you there. Happy Birthday!


HAPPY 44th BIRTHDAY from one of your lurkers!
I see that the comments are up to 44 at the moment, but you always need that extra one (just like bday candles) for good luck, right?
Keep on writing and I'll keep on reading! Love your blog. Hope you have a fantastic day.




Happy Birthday dear Jenn! Your blog always is a joy to read. And it is a pleasure to be your 46th commenter!!!

Grown-Up Girl

Hey "Jenn". Way to call me out! And for the record I was already *planning* on commenting, so you just ruined my good intentions with your catty-ness, way to go! And that bit about me dumping your birthday cheesecake in your lap was soooo unnecessary. In other news, I see you already have your 44+ comments, so I can't help out there... but you should know that regardless of how much you try to compete with me ("How many prescriptions does your pharmacy fill on a Monday? Only 400? OMG, *my* pharmacy fills 8,924,117!!") and call me to brag about your grades and such, you're still the best mom I could have asked for... which is good news since I'm apparently turning into you. You've never had to do anything for me, never had to take me in, never had to treat me exactly as if I was your own daughter, and yet I've never sensed the slightest bit of reticence or regret from you, and it means the world. I love you Mom. I hope your birthday is the best.

Tina Borngrebe

Happy 44th Birthday to the best Sister I have!!!! All my Love! T :) XOXOXOXOXOXO

Music Man

Hooray Birthday! I hope it was full of joyful joy-y joyousness. In light of Grown Up Girl and I being too far away to sing to you personally I have commissioned a lesser known group to sing two versions of the song for you! One of which may or may not have been quoted in your journal entry's title. Happy Birthday "Jenn" O_o :) I hope these songs and birthday wishes find you well :)
