on a birthday request...

squishy baby face.

1. It's time for my second annual birthday delurk post! So, those of you who are out there and haven't yet posted a comment? Now is your chance! This is your moment of glory! Tell me something about yourself. What is your middle name? What is your most recent obsession? Would you like to come over for some wine and taquitos? Do you think I should take Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an additional husband? (Okay, so, maybe that last one is about me, but the jury is still out and I'm just wondering.)

2. Regular commenters/readers, feel free to leave your thoughts, too - oh, and you're also invited to the wine and taquito shenanigans. Obviously.

3. Check out Nicole's post to see the video I made about our Gap party this past weekend. It is good times. It took me a bajillion hours to make, but it was totally worth it. ("SIZE FOUR.")

So, what are you waiting for? Squishy baby face gets what squishy baby face wants. Amen.

  1. "SIZE FOUR!!" Nicole's a hoot...as you are too, I'm sure. :) Love the vid.

    I don't know whether I've delurked here before or not...I can't remember. But I was *so* going to comment anyway...so there.

    Happy 25th!

  2. My middle name is Anne, I love wine and taquito's, I am Canadian and thus can't come over for any but you are very kind to extend the invite!

    Happy Birthday!

  3. You have the CUTEST squishy baby face ever! Happy Birthday, MY lovely wishcake!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oh my god, I want eat your baby face!!!!

    Wait, that didn't come out right. I just meant that your squishy baby face is the most adorable baby face EVER.

    But seriously, I hope you have a fantastic day, Kerri. You are such a sweetheart & I am so glad that I've gotten the chance to know you better.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  5. WINE AND TAQUITOS!!!! I will have virtual wine and taquitos with you.

    (Not a lurker, middle name is Marie, current obsession is Alexander Skarsgard who I think I should take as a second husband, and yes you should totally take Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a second husband)

    Happy Birthday!!! Have a wonderful one!

    ReplyDelete
  6. well...just for your birthday, I suppose I'll comment. (I've thrown up a comment maybe once or twice over the course of a year or so that I've been reading, so I think I still count as a lurker.)

    My middle name's Fawn (first is Shelby)...college freshman who leaves for school today! Obsession wise? I'm a new convert to Ben Folds and macbooks, and am obsessed with both. And if you take Joseph as a second husband, you'll have to share him with me!

    Happy happy happy happy happy birthday, my dear :]

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm pretty sure I've commented at least once before, but either way -have a very happy birthday! Keep smiling!

  8. Totally adorable squishy baby face.
    Congrats on being a size four! that ought to make a woman feel awesome =)

    Well I'm a regular commenter but I would love to come over for wine and taquitos and to discuss the possibilities of Jason Gordon Levitt.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Happy Birthday! :)
    I've commented once before, but I thought I would re-delurk.
    My middle name is Lynn. Most recenty I am obsessed with Pandora radio and spending hours perusing Etsy (usually at the same time). If you weren't 3000 miles away, we would be eating Taquitos RIGHT NOW.
    Also, you are delightful and I hope you have had a wonderful quarter-century thus far!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'll bring the guac to the taquito party. And a sombrero. Must have one of those.

    Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Happy Birthday!!! Middle name is Marie, current obsession is SLEEP!, and I'd love to come over for wine and taquitos! Have fun today!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. My middle name is also Marie. My most recent obsession is the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack, so yes, I totally think you should take JGL as an additional hubby. Wine and taquitos sounds like bliss, I'm totally in... even if I am from Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Also, have a happy, happy birthday golden birthday girl!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My middle name is Edith and I am currently obsessed with Shakira's She Wolf song. I secretly howl "ah-OOOOOO" in my head at least fifty times a day. (Try it - I highly recommend it.) I too love wine and also your blog because you seem like such a kind, happy soul. Plus you make me smile.

    Happy quarter century!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hmm I think I've posted once before, but anyway.

    My middle name is Suzanne. :)

    I just recently turned 24 and that was quite frightening so I can't imagine how I will feel when I turn 25.

    I totally crushed on JGL back when 3rd rock from the sun was on... the good old days. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Happy Birthday friend! I hope you have a simply lovely day!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Not quite sure if I've delurked...I might have made a random comment here and there.

    Middle name is Marjorie. Current obsessions are thinking/fantasizing about a home of my own, English gardens, various podcasts, and tea. If I was around I would love love love to come over for taquitos and wine...but alas I am far far away.

    ReplyDelete
  18. HAPPY 25th BIRTHDAY!!! YAY!!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful day!!

    I wish I could join the wine and taquitos shenanigans but unfortunately living so far away puts a damper on that! HAHA! ;-)

    I have a request for you! I'm going to e-mail you about it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi! I told you on Twitter already, but Happy Birthday again!

    I may or may not have commented earlier, but I'm pretty sure I haven't yet, since I just found your blog like 3 days ago! My middle name is Marie, after my Grandma. My most recent obsession is 20SB, because again, I just found it 3 days ago (through YOUR blog btw), and instantly became addicted. I have no idea what taquitos are, but based on what I've read, I think I'd love to come over for some! And I say go for it with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I'm sure he'd marry you in a hot second!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Lurker here! 24 and married. In my alternate reality, we are BFF and you just invited me over for wine and taquitos. Is that ok?

    ReplyDelete
  21. yes, i would love to come over for dinner for food and drinks.
    yes, i am kind of delurking. but i think i have commented before...
    can't quite remember.
    i'm semi new.
    i started reading you after y'all went to vegas.
    a bunch of my fav writers went to vegas, and i was insanely jealous and wanted to meet everyone, so i basically added everyone who went to vegas on my blogroll and thats how i found you...

    (wait, you did go to vegas right? if not, then i just found you through those peoples blogs, but i'm pretty sure you went to vegas)
    and now... i just love reading you!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm a regular reader but not commenter. I found you through Just A Titch. Anyway Happy Birthday!!! My middle name is Renee (after my mom) and I definitely think Joseph Gordon-Levitt is more than worthy of second husband status!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. happy birthday! i've been reading your blog for awhile now. i think i somehow stumbled across it after purchasing a cute felt pouch from your etsy shop, which is stocked with the most adorable things by the way!

    kim

    ps- joseph gordon-levitt!! i used to buy bop and teen beat just so i could paste his pictures on my walls. hehe!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Kerri! I have been reading for a while and I lurve your blog! :)

    Oh, and your baby squishy face.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have already delurked, but I shall do it again; it is your birthday after all.

    Middle name: Michal

    Most recent obsession(s): Grey nail polish, pasta salad, and Pandora (which, dammit, has a 40 hour-per-month maximum.)

    Wine and taquitos: Umm, yes please. (However, someone in my office just heated up some food that smells like Chinese food. I doubt it is Chinese food, as it's not even 10am, but it smells like it. Yum.)

    J G-L: Hmm, the jury's still out on him (for me at least.) I'll get back to you once I finally see 500 Days of Summer.

    Happy birfday!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy birthday! If I promise to make you chocolate-dipped brownie bites, will you come visit me in Philadelphia? Because I'm pretty sure I can make that happen.

    Also, your party was roughly ten million times more glamorous than mine, which now seems insanely lame in comparison. Thank goodness my friends didn't go to yours first!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi! I totally enjoy reading your blog and following your tweets, its sort of creepy how lots of times you are currently obsessed with the same things as me (dexter, weeds, wine, taquitos, ikea) haha. My middle name is Anne, and I love wine and I make some delicious chicken taquitos - once you try them its hard to go back to Jose Ole!

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!! You are hilarious and I always smile when I see your post come up on my reader. =)

    ReplyDelete
  28. hi hon! happy birthday. i loved being 25 and i hope you do too!!

    oh and ummm, my middle is "Taquitos & Wine".

    Let's try to Book Club soon!

    ReplyDelete
  29. hey beautiful! happy birthday! my middle name is elizabeth, i love a nice glass of wine with my bagel bites and i have more craft supplies than i know what to do with. oh, and in case you have forgotten... i live in NEW JERSEY which is REALLY REALLY REALLY far from CALIFORNIA and is really inconvenient when it comes to things like drinking wine together and discussing JGL. Also? I MISS YOU.

    The video of you and Nic had me cracking up. I'm so happy that your party was awesome and dinner at the ivy!? so jealous.

    happy birthday (again).

    xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  30. Happy Happy Birthday to youuuu! I hope you have a wonderful day!

    My middle name is Marie and my current obsessions are Crocheting, Cupcakes, & Chai Tea! Wine & Taquitos? I'm there with the chips & salsa!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Delurking! I think I stumbled upon your blog from the 20sb awards, and have been a fan ever since.

    My middle name is Debra (my mom's name), my current obsession is Jimmy Stewart (foxy!), and I'm on the east coast so I'll have to decline the invite but I am now intensely craving taquitos if that counts for anything.

    Also, I thoroughly approve of anything Joseph Gordon-Levitt is involved, including possible polygamy.

    Happy Birthday :]

    ReplyDelete
  32. Delurking as you wish! I've left comments here and there before, but it's been awhile...eeps! My middle name is Joanne, after my mother. Current obsession? Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1, I know he's fiction but he'd be my additional hubby if I had a first one! Could I bring my own non-alcoholic wine and vege meat taquitos along?!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Happy Birthday SIZE TWO!

    i absolutely adore you, your squishy baby face, and the squishy baby faces of your future children.

    .. you know, said in a way less creepy than that sounds kind of way =)

    OX.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lovin' the squishy face - too stinkin' cute!!

    Here's a confusing one... my middle name is Ashley :) {I go by my middle name, not my first}

    Can I come over for taquitos? yummm i haven't had those in forever!

    Anyway, Happy Happy Happy Birthday Kerri!!!

    Hope you have a truly awesome day to match your truly awesome personality and that Jay spoils you rotten :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Happy Birthday!

    I think I've commented at least once or twice maybe. But my middle name is Lynn and my current obsession is the home my husband and I are in the process of building.

    Hope you have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Happy birthday! Wine and taquitos sound like the best celebration combo that I can imagine, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a pretty sweet candidate for second-husband status.

    I'm in NorCal (which, fine, is an annoying abbreviation, but it's the best I can think of)-- if I start driving now, we could have a taquito-filled late lunch!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Happy Birthday!

    I'm usual a lurker myself but may have commented a time or two. My middle name is Lynn and my current obsession is anything that has to do with volkswagens.

    ReplyDelete
  38. hahah that is adorable! happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm Kimberly. I'm 27 and a newlywed (married 5 months) who happens to be 2 and a half months pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Happy birthday! Yes, I would like to come over for taquitos!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hi! My name is Laura and I don't think I've commented here yet, though I could be mistaken. I found you a couple of weeks ago via Just A Titch. My middle name is Shannon and I'm recently obsessed with the notion that you can use plain ol' talc or baby powder as a cheap substitute for dry shampoo and it works like a charm. This makes me very happy and probably increases my laziness levels threefold.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Happy birthday!! I want in on the wine and taquito's. =) Enjoy your day and hope this year is one of the best yet!

    ReplyDelete
  43. happy birthday!!!!
    ive commented before but not often, though i read your blog all of the time. i know we have a lot of similar friends on our blogrolls!
    my middle name is brooke! that's a little tidbit and even tells you where the brookem came from.
    im obsessed with running as of late, as well as gerard butler ALL OF THE TIME, and, french manicures and purple pedicures.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Happy Birthday!!!

    That is the cutest baby face ever!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My attempt to DeLuRk! Middle name is Beth - I'm 23 - have a little boy who is 14 months - and I think a lot of you... just by reading your blog. I thoroughly enjoy. Thank You!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My middle name is Leigh.

    Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  47. happy birthday! i recently found you via miss zoot. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. My middle name is Ann. I love sushi, birthday cake (ahem), finding spelling mistakes in public places, high heels, tennis, horses, and finding things on sale. I do enjoy wine and I like the idea of taquitos--unfortunately I am a taquito virgin--horrors!

    I hope you have a lovely birthday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. first of all, Happy Birthday!! and your baby picture is HELLA cute.

    I would love some wine & taquitos, thank you!

    My middle name is Leigh (pronounced Lee) and I'm only 21 but sometimes I feel like I'm 30 already!

    Have a fantastic day!

    ReplyDelete
  50. My middle name is "I don't have a middle name" or as written on our marriage certificate "NONE". No, seriously both of it is true. Middle names just weren't popular in Germany back in the 80s.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. My name's Melissa. My middle name is my mother's maiden name. My most recent obsession is your blog (seriously!). I am an avid consumer of both wine AND taquitos. I vote "nay" on the Joseph Gordon-Levitt issue because you already have a cool husband and I'd like a shot at Joey.

    Also, happy, happy birthday! I hope you get your wish[cake][s]!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The happiest of birthdays to you and your beautiful self.

    I, too, am a ridiculous fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and whole heartedly agree with you including him in your life... albeit, it will most likely be as just a friend because, sadly, he's already been promised to me...

    I know. Tough break.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I saw that picture and totally thought "Argh Matey!"
    Since I live in Spokane now, I think that wine and taquitos idea might be plausible and extremely tempting.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Re-delurking here too! I've posted once or twice :)

    Names Sarah. Middle names Beth. I live in OC too and am a Nanny! :). I agree that you should take Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a 2nd Hubby, but can ya share?? LOL Hehe.

    Love your blog..can't remember where I stumbled upon you from, but glad I did!

    Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't think I've commented before, but what a wonderful day to start! Happy 25th Birthday! I hope you have a blessed day! I turned 25 earlier this year - it's not so bad. :)

    My middle name is Lee; I absolutely LOVE wine and taquitos; and my current obsession would be home decor. I got married in May, and we'll be starting our first household together. He's in the military, and we'll be moving to Charleston, SC, next month. I'm excited to buy furniture and decorate our first place. :)

    Again, Happy Birthday, and I adore your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Happy! Day of Cake, babe. Here's to 25 being your best year yet!

    ReplyDelete
  57. That photo rocks!

    I'm not sure if I've commented before, but it's always a good time to wish a happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm not a lurker by any means, but I'm still jumping in to say Happy Birthday to little squishy babyface!

    Also, my middle name is Devin (hence the D in AshleyD), in case you really wanted to know. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm so totally lurking (but haven't been for very long). I actually found out about you from Ev'Yan in a random tweet, liked what I saw, bookmarked, and stayed. I'm totally picking up what you're laying down.

    But I must insist - taquitos are only good if they're not from QuickTrip. Just sayin'.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Who was the cutest baby ever? You, for sure! Happy birthday, lady!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Um for sure to the wine and taquitos. I laughed hysterically earlier today at the video Nicole posted. Annnnd I wish you were my friends. The end.

    Oh, and happy birthday. :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Happy Birthday!!
    Obviously, I have commented before, but I am commenting again. Duh.

    And I love taquitos, but I am just turning 20 in October, so I will have to pass on the wine... But I will bring some grape juice! I know, very fancy stuff.

    Current obsessions: cooking, decorating my moms house/ my college apartment, and creating things for my Etsy shop.

    =D

    ReplyDelete
  63. Aww, happy birthday! I'm pretty sure I've commented before, but I can't remember. Anywhoosit- my middle name is Michele (with one L!), and after seeing JGL in 500 Days I'm pretty sure I want him as my husband, too!

    Hope you enjoy your birthday and drink as many glasses of wine as your heart desires!

    ReplyDelete
  64. OH SHOOOOOT, girrrrrrl! it's your GOLDEN bday!!! you only get one in your whole life (& mine was the BEST bday i've had yet!) hope yours in too!

    p.s. i'm so down to have taquitos witchoo :) i'm bummed i missed the gap party! so stoked i was even considered to be invited though ;)

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  65. Not delurking, but my middle name is....did you guess yet?

    lol It's Roma, hence the blog name =)

    Happy delurking day!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hahaha, you're so cute as a baby!!

    Happy Birthday!! I have been reading for a few weeks and I think I have commented a few times :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Happy Birthday!!!

    Hope your day is filled with great food, company and beer!! :)

    Many more...

    ReplyDelete
  68. Happy birthday :) Count me as the seventh commenter with the middle name Marie!
    All the best! Eri

    ReplyDelete
  69. I've commented before but here goes.. My middle name is Sholeh (It's Persian) and I like taquitos but not wine so much. My current obsession is snow cones.. I could eat one every single day if I had the $$ and the waistline :P

    ReplyDelete
  70. Denise is my middle name. I love Taquitos! I love wine too but I've been craving really bad for a slurpee. Crazy I know! I'm allllll the way over on the east coast so no visits anytime soon. So sad. Hope you have an Awesome Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  71. In case you didn't know, my middle name is Minuet. And I'm sorry, but I think there are more worth candidates for you entrance into bigamy. Just saying..... e.g. Robert Pattinson?
    Happy happy birfday to you. I hope it is lovely, and in honor of Kerri-Day, I am wearing the scarf you sent me around my hips. :) And I can't say if I'm a wine fan yet (still underage till 7 weeks from today) but taquitos sound lovely, if I happen to be in Cali anytime soon.... :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. happy birthday wishcake! hope your big day is fabulous just like you. oh btw you still haven't followed me on twitter --> http://twitter.com/emilykcorcoran

    cheers to birthdays!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Taquitos and wine? Yum.

    And I wasn't a huge fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt until 500 Days of Summer, but yes he would make an excellent extra husband. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  74. Here I am delurking. I love your photos, love how you write, and my middle name is Rae.

    ReplyDelete
  75. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm not a lurker but I thought I'd say HI anyway. :) Happy 25 love!

    ReplyDelete
  76. umm that picture is precious! love it! hope you're having a most fabulous birthday kerri :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I was super psyched when I turned 25. To me, that's the age where people start to take you seriously as a REAL grown up. You're no longer a young 20-something right out of college. Strangers stop envisioning you doing kegstands when you mention that you went out for cocktails with friends. Bartenders stop using a calculator to make sure you're over 21. And finally, if you get pregnant, people won't think you're from Arkansas.

    For me, that was a few years ago, and things get better and better each year!

    Happy Birthday!


    PS- I've never commented, but my blog has a link to yours. It's fairly new.

  79. I love wine and taquitos but really the wine, but I am in DC and that makes me far away, and I have multiple obsessions, most currently cupcakes, and I think you are super brave for posting what you do about body image and such because God only knows I hide most of those posts deep deep down. Anyways, I will now return to lurking and cease my rambling. Mostly.

    Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Happy Birthday!

    I'm not a lurker, but I want to talk about how obsessed I am with Zac Efron anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Middle name: Elizabeth

    Most recent obsession(s): Being all domestic, making cakes and slices, throwing dinner parties.

    Wine and taquitos: Absolutely, if only I didn't live so far away! NZ is a bit too far of a commute for wine!

    J G-L: Go for it girl!.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Happy birthday! I'll have TWO glasses of wine tonight in your honor :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Seriously, what I would give right now to be inhaling wine and taquitos with you. Because I don't just drink/eat those things, I freaking INHALE them. YUM.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Happy Birthday! And I love dropping by your blog occasionally to read your funny/insightful/honest posts. You're great.

    ReplyDelete
  85. omg that is the cutest picture!

    and I totally want wine and taquitos. mmmm......

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yes to the wine, no to the taquitos! But I suppose that with enough wine, I could be convinced to eat one or two of them.

    My middle name is Elizabeth, along with millions of other girls born between the years of 1983 and 1985. I love my boring parents.

    Happy 25th! Hope it's been great :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. that photo of you is adorable! Have a wonderful birthday and I can't think a more perfect birthday present than all these wonderful comments- you are so loved!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hi, I live in Northern British Columbia, Canada (near Alaska). I'm a lurker and hardly ever post comments anywhere so consider this a birthday present. Thanks for the blog, I love your writing style and the fun posts mixed with deep questioning posts. Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Happy Birthday! I'm officially delurking -- I found you via Caffeinated Me, Andrea's blog (she's awesome), I don't have a middle name, I would love wine and taquitos (ever had black bean, corn and avocado taquitos? Amazing!), my most recent obsessions are the public library, 500 Days of Summer, Kings of Leon and salty-sweet-spicy oyster crackers (recipe at my blog!) and YES, you should totally take on Joseph Gordon Levitt as an additional husband (and watch the movie The Lookout because he's great in it!

    Happy birthday! Hope you have a fabulous one!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. My middle name is May, but it used to be Marie.

    I adore wine and taquitos, and I wish I had some right now!

    Hope you are having the most wonderful 25th birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm such a terrible lurker on just about any blogs I visit, even the really lovely, special ones like this one! But I suppose for your birthday (and mine, which is tomorrow!), I can shed my unfounded shame and proclaim myself an admirer of you and your blog (and of that SUPER adorable picture, oh, my gosh!). Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I always need an excuse to delurk!

    My middle name is Erika, after the guy who introduced my parents (aww), I am totally drinking a glass of box wine AS I TYPE, and I live in San Diego so I could totally have taquitos with you.

    I hope your birthday is fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Yesterday was my birthday--I should have made this same request, but I'm SURE I wouldn't have a hunerd people comment. Good for you. I have no idea how I found you, but yes, I do lurk. Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Hey girl, found you via KylaRoma - she suggested your blog to me and I am glad she did!

    To answer your questions...

    What is your middle name? Rochelle.

    What is your most recent obsession? White Russians and Julie Powell.

    Would you like to come over for some wine and taquitos? Is the sky BLUE??!

    Do you think I should take Joseph Gordon-Levitt as an additional husband? Sure, why not! I have a husband too - let's all make additions! (lol)

    If you get a minute, stop by my blog and let me know what you think!

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  95. *sigh* Love that Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I think he's probably one of the only consistent crushes I've had since I saw him on Angels in the Outfield back in my childhood days. Ha. Take him as a husband, if you must, but you must allow me to come visit! ;) (I was always 100% sure we'd be bff)

  96. happy birthday! hope you had a wonderful day!

  98. Happy Birthday! I'm addicted to flour tortilla chicken and cheese taquitos-I can't even have a box in my house or I'll eat the whole thing in a weekend ;-) I hope you had a great day!

  99. I've commented before, but I did want to wish you a happy birthday. To a girl, who, if we lived on the same coast, I'd swear we were twins because of all the ways we think alike...and for all the ways we don't.

    Hope your birthday is as fantastic as you are!

  100. My middle name is Elizabeth, and.. did you say wine and taquitos? I'm totally there.

    Happy happy birthday!! I hope you had/have a wonderful day, because you deserve it.

    Oh wait, I commented on your last entry....

  102. Holycrap a billion comments. HOLY CRAP KERRI.

    Does mine even matter? Just kidding. I thought I'd let you know that my middle name is Dawn.

    And, let's do those taquitos.

    And, that video is pretty much amazing.

  104. Happy Birthday! My middle name is Charlynn. Because my mom loved "Lynn" names, but didn't want me or my sister to have them as first names, because she didn't want them shortened into nicknames. She managed to give us first names that can't be shortened very easily. She also made up the spellings.

    And I'm sorry to tell you that I do not like wine, but I do like taquitos. So thank you for your kind invitation. Maybe I'll stop by in two weeks when my family drives down to California.

  105. That video you made was great!

    I will be over tomorrow for wine and taquitos. :)

  106. A big 'Happy Birthday To You' from an Australian fan :) I have followed your blog religiously since Christmas and I adore it! BUT, oddly, I have never commented before- but seeing as you made it your special birthday request, how could I not oblige?!
    Middle name: Shannan. with an "a". weirdly.
    Most recent obssession: watching Gossip Girl on DVD... I've never been into it before, but after being re-gifted a friend's box set, I AM HOOKED!!!
    Wine and taquito's: YES PLEASE
    Joseph Gordon-Levitt: YES PLEASE :P Have you seen 'GI Joe'? It's an AWFUL movie, but the scenes showing JGL as a spunky young soldier are hawwwwwwwwt :)

    Love always and always, Olivia
    xoxo

  108. Alright, I'll de-lurk for your birthday! I love your blog, my middle name is Angelique, and my most recent obsession is teaching myself photography. I have to say, that wine and taquitos sounds like an interesting mix, but I'm up for anything involving wine!

    Anyhoo, I hope you have a great birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  109. As my gift to you I am finally done lurking. I have been reading your blog since the spring and love it. The posts are so honest, and the outfits are great too! I would love to come over for wine and taquitos, but sadly I live a little far away. Happy Birthday all the way from Alaska!

  110. Delurking here! My middle name's Irene (first is Magdelyn aka Maggie), my current obsession is finding peacock themed things on etsy for my wedding, and I would love to share wine and taquitos with you.

  116. My middle name is Rhiannon (like the song), I live in Australia though so popping over for wine and taquitos might be a bit of a stretch. Maybe next time I'm in the states, we can go to Disneyland together?
    My current obsession is postcrossing. I'm addicted. It's bad.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAYYY!

  138. Well, I just found your blog through 20sb today, so i'm not really a lurker, BUT my middle name is LeAnne. I have never had taquitos, so don't know how i'd feel about having them with wine, but i'm up for new things. i am currently obsessed with a puppy. i have wanted a bernese mountain dog for about 7 years, and I Finally found someone near where I am that has puppies. So I am going to buy one in October when they can leave their litter. and if you want him, you might as well take him. a good husband would allow you that 2nd husband. personally, i'd rather have a wife to take care of my house for me. :)

  139. I love your blog to pieces and do feel a little stalker like reading but not often commenting!

  148. Happy Birthday!!

    My middle name is Jane, I'm Australian and I am currently completely and utterly obsessed with my new leather jacket that my parents just brought me back from London.

    You should totally take on JGL, although only in his current state, it's a vast improvement from his '10 Things' days...and even though I'm currently on the other side of the world, I would totally pop over if given the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Happy belated birthday, lady!

    I'm not necessarily a lurker, but my middle name is Maund. It's my mother's maiden name, and I adore it.

    How does 25 feel?

    ReplyDelete
  150. I hope you had a lovely birthday.

    I am a long time lurker and I have to admit your blog is one of my favourites. When one of your posts pops up in my reader I get pretty happy.

    A little something about myself, I am Canadian, I will read anything (especially comic books), and I love the colour purple. Oh and kitten! ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  151. I am a little late to the party and I apologize, but Happy Birthday! Thanks for continuing to be an inspiration :)

  152. hiya hiya!

    Oops, I'm quite late but I still wanted to pop over (hee sounds so british!) and say HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kerri!

    Your birthday sounds like it was just lovely (who doesn't like brunch and balloons and drinks?! yay!) and I'm so glad you had a great day! Hurrah! Happy 25th!

    Let's have that wine and taquitos party! I'll bring some budlight w/ lime.

    XOXO

  154. Happy belated! I just wanted to say Lovely Bones is my FAVE book! I read it when I was 18 in like a week when I was working at a law firm as a receptionist. Once done I gave it away or something which was a dumb mistake. But, I have her two other books that I just love too, but haven't gotten around to picking up Lovely Bones again. Any who- just something we have in common!

    ReplyDelete
  155. I know I am late and have never met you-however my friend Lisa mentioned you in her post-so Happy BeLated Birthday.
