For My Birthday



I found this amazing pink chick rock guitar. I think I must have it. It just may help me play better. Don't you think? I'm pretty sure it will. It will inspire me, at any rate.

I have created a
wishlist on Amazon and have added this to it. Just so all are aware. Oh, and my birthday is April 14th, so you can start saving.

Guess who emailed me on friday? Amanda Pilgrim (now Priano)! Somehow the Bethel rumor mill got it around that I was getting married and she wanted to hear first hand. It amazes me how stuff gets around. Especially seeing as there are very very few Bethel people that I even talk to! And I haven't spoken to Amanda in over 3yrs. Weeeird. Anyway- she lives pretty close to where I used to live in Pittsburgh and is married with twin babies almost a yr old. Makes me feel old!

anne said...

No way! Gosh, that makes me feel old too. HA!

Are you going to the big 25 year bash this year?

Shawn said...

What do you think? ;) If it happens to fall on the weekend I am there for our wedding reception then I MIGHT consider it. But honestly I have no desire to darken those doors. And I certainly wouldn't make a special trip up for it. Amanda mentioned it too though- I guess she and her husband are going. When is it anyway? Are you going?

anne said...

Sometime in June I think so I can't go as I have a ton of events with my kids that month. I'm sure Shelly will give me a hard time over it! I don't think I'd mind going, but I know that I can't. Johnny obviously doesn't want to. And I'm sure most of his classmates won't want to. It's a nice idea, but people are just too far away now. I would do it just for curiousity's sake! Get the low-down on everyone!

Shawn said...

Yeah- nothing wrong with gettin a little Bethel gossip! I'd be very curious to know who actually does go. But I think I'd rather just have a list emailed to me than actually going to find out. lol Besides obviously June is going to be incredibly busy for us also, as the wedding is July 8th. But you think July is going to be a little slower for you- maybe you guys might make it down for it?

anne said...

I actually could. I have an event the 6th, but we could probably come down Friday night. Is it a morning or evening wedding? That will make the difference. I have to teach in the mornings on Sundays this summer.

Shawn said...

It's at 3pm. Reception is from 5-8 or so. You'd have to see how the late the last flights out leave that night. You could just come to the reception for an hour or two. Although it's gonna be quite the party (sans alcohol though sadly) so it might be worth gettin a substitute and stayin late :)

anne said...

I will have to look into that then. Check with the hubby and all. :) Maybe make a long weekend out of the deal!

Shawn said...

Cool! There's plenty to do around here- The Old Mill from Gone with the Wind, Clinton Library, Rivermarket (lots of restaurants and shops), Pinnacle Mountain, Hot Springs, etc. You guys would have fun. Just keep me posted :)

heather said...

sweet guitar! you should definitely get that!

anne said...

I know Heather, isn't it!? Wouldn't I be soo hot! :)

Shawn...what about cool b&bs? Those are my favorite.

BeckyD said...

okay you two...are you just going to have your own little conversation in the comment section? I had heard about the BBCA thing too...from Jen Urso. I know I wasn't there too long, but I might be home in June so I could fill you guys in on what the "good gossip" is! :) I don't know though, Brandon's deployment to the desert is up in the air...he has four possible dates now...April 20th, May 1st, June 1st and June 24th. I guess I'm just going to play it by ear. Our house closes on the 8th of May and then I have to move out of our current apartment by the 1st of June. But I also have to get a UHAUL from NY and bring all my stuff down to SC (plus a few things my parents are getting rid of as they downsize). I'll keep you posted with any info I hear.

BeckyD said...

oh and Anne...yes, I remembered the 14th was your birthday...now I'll try to remember to get the card in the mail! Must be #27 right? Oh and isn't it exciting that you're only 3 years away from 30?!?!?! I had someone tell me when I turned 26 that I was approaching 30! I'm just glad you'll get there before I do...even if it is only by 28 days!

anne said...

Beck...you are going to be crazy busy! But I understand too how it goes. Definitely keep us updated as to any good stuff you hear! We did love it when you were at school with us. Man that seems like so stinking long ago, doesn't it?
30?! You are so mean. I'll turn first before Shelly too. Ugh. At least Andy and Paul have to hit it the year before, but I don't think it's as bad for guys, is it? How about Brandon?
I am so bad with birthdays sometimes. Hmmm...that gives me an idea.

BeckyD said...

Yes, Brandon's hit it already too. His birthday's on the 18th of Feb. And I know...there's no way that Shelly will every beat either one of us to any magic number! Unfortunately she gets the privelege of being the youngest one of all! :) I thought you'd probably hit it before Shawn since his b-day is in May...I just can't remember the exact date so I didn't want to open up the possibility that I might hit it before him! I seem to remember that Shawn and I had a pact...if we were both 30 and unmarried, the two of us would get married and move to Colorado! I'm glad Shawn's holding up his end and getting married now, since I'm already married...I wouldn't want to have left him hanging! :)

anne said...

I remember those pacts. How did you get Shawn? I thought he was mine. Did I have Jeremiah then? That's freaking hysterical...

BeckyD said...

I don't know...you may have had Shawn in high school...we didn't make our pact until we lunched together all the time our freshman year of college! So, maybe our pact overrides yours? I don't know...but at least now we don't have to worry about a possible ensuing cat-fight...we all have wonderful spouses!! (or at least almost spouses!)

anne said...

That may be true. You're lucky then. I would have to get my claws out..."He was mine first!"

Good thing Andy's really hot. And really tall...he definitely has that over Shawn. Like by two feet. Sorry dude...

Shawn said...

ok ladies- as much as I love ya'll fightin over me- if all 3 of us had remained unmarried then we just woulda moved to Utah instead of Colorado ;) Oh- and my b-day is May 23rd. And I do NOT like that I am gettin close to 30!! yuck.
