Happy Birthday Liz!!

It is now 8:30am, and at this exact moment 27 years ago, a little bundle of joy with a mop of hair exited her mother's birth canal. That mop hasn't stopped growing. "Happy Birth Moment Liz!"-Dwight Schrute

First things first...a healthy breakfast in bed. This french toast has no sugar/fat/calories/guilt.


27 things I love about Liz:

1. I love how she loves to stick her tongue out which she blames on a so-called "tongue thrust" she has...google it, there's no such thing.


2. I love that she can shred on a wakeboard and has a wicked cool scar by her eye to prove it.

3. That being said, I love how on the tube she screams like Willy Wonka at the end of his creepy song in the tunnel.

4. I love how she can even make overpriced nasty French water look good.

5. I love how she rolls up in the comforter like a Taco Bell chalupa to sleep.


6. I love how she'll buy a bag of marshmallows for "a new recipe she's trying" and eat the whole bag by lunch.
7. I love her bubbly toes. Jack Johnson makes so much more sense now.

8. I love her pregoliciuos bod.


9. I love how genuine and sincere she is, like when she started crying after signing her first autograph. I was yelling at the police officer after I signed my first autograph.


10. I love how she has to sleep with the fan on for some white noise, but she still puts in ear plugs.


11. I love when we went to Chadder's (Utah's "In-n-Out burger knockoff, pending litigation) she bit a fry, looked at me in shock and said, "These fries taste like potatoes."


12. I love when we drove home last night from the Real Salt Lake vs. David Beckham game and a car full of poser gangsters drove by and stared at her, she threw her arms up and said, "WHAT!?!"


13. I love how I can get her to laugh hysterically in 4.3 seconds by simply quoting Ricky Bobby lines..."I wrecked the car, got mauled by a cougar, and my Crystal Gale shirt is ruined."

14. I love how she never gets sick of Office re-runs.

15. I love how she is so close to her mom and sisters.

17. I love how much fun she has with my family.

18. I love how she makes sure we go to her dad's gravesite every year and say a prayer.

19. I love how she tries to set-up a candid shot of me. "Okay, now pretend you're laughing." More like candon't.

20. I love how amazingly creative she is. She took a pair of scissors, some ribbon, and an old fishing hook and made a Toyota Prius that ran on water.

21. I love how much she loves her Savior and how she teaches Avery about Jesus.

22. I love when we drive by a nice car that I notice, she says, "Get some!"

23. I love how she thinks it's a "drastic change" when she chopps off 2 inches of her flowing mane.

24. I love how she brings me a glass of water when I'm mowing the weeds, uh lawn.

25. I love how she cries at the end of EVERY Extreme Home Makeover show.

26. I love how she makes me audition for American Idol in front of her during commercials.

27. I love that I'm already at #27 and I could keep going for hours.

Happy Birthday Lizzy!!! Let's open some presents!

Heather K said...

Elizabeth, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog :) The movie was good (you'd probably really like it, being pregnant), not quite as many laughs as I thought it would have, but still a good flick. My girl's night out was great, though. Cute pedi, yummy Wallabedarned drinks and steak at the Outback, and kids-free time with my "BFF". Can't beat that! Have a great week!

AngMomof3 said...

Wow. That was super great. He's a keeper, for sure (not that you were considering trading him in...)
