Say it. Outloud. Say it. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEMANDA!

Dear Demanda, 

I know today is a very special day. It's Tuesday! the night 90210 is on!  the premiere of Jackson's new webseries! YOUR 30TH BIRTHDAY!!!! 

That's how happy I am! 

I know we've been friends for a long time. 'How long is a long time'? A while. Before we met you were a teeny tiny Manda baby.

I always wondered why our cat tries to grab our hands while we're holding spoons.
Now I know where she gets it! 

Although a lot has changed, some things have not. Like you still fall asleep after drinking a bottle, probably go to the bathroom the same amount, and drool sometimes. When we met, were were awesome Jr. High kids. How awesome? THIS AWESOME!

Jr High Manda

 I'd post a picture of myself from Jr. High but sadly there aren't any online... that I know of. Thankfully. I'm sure that will change when my 30th Birthday hits. Anyway, you were pretty much the exact same person when we were 12 that you are now. Fun, energetic, 5'3", etc. Now you're a little more mature and a whole lot better dressed. But still the same amazing friend.  I can't believe we celebrated our 13th Birthdays together and now we're celebrating 30. Yikes! Throughout our friendship, we've only been in 3 fights. One about Doritos, one about Barnes and Noble and one about car keys. All equally important. We've been through laughable roadtrips, even more laughable guy stories, moments that make us think that if we told anyone about it, they would NEVER believe us, laughter, love, heartbreak, silliness, moves all around Cali, and much much more. THAT is true friendship. I seriously couldn't ask for a better heterosexual life partner to have spend the last 18 years with. Holy shit, if our friendship was a person it would be a legal adult!

Thank you for being amazing. I hope your Birthday is all that you hoped for and more. And I hope that your 30's are even more of a spectacular adventure than your 20's were... although we both know that is VERY hard to beat.  I love you and am so unbelievably grateful to have you in my life. Now go rock your dirty thirties!!!



PS- A few other people wanted to wish you a Happy 30th Birthday too.

From Rikki:

"For your Birthday, I will loan you Bolton. And your present is on the way!" (that's saying a lot!!!! She must really love you.)

From Chloe Cougar:

Happy Birthday Hunni! Hope you have the most fantabulous day and that (almost all) your wishes come true. By that, I mean that you wouldn't want ALL of them to come true, all at the same time, cuz then you'd have nothing to look forward to. So yeah, have a good one, and tell us ALL about it when you've survived the hangover!

Happy 30th Birthday Amanda!! I am so glad I was able to see you twice this year and I had soooo much fun in Napa with you (Chandon specifically, of course, LOL).
I hope you have a phenomenal day and you get to celebrate you and all your awesomeness.
I love you and I hope all your birthday wishes come true.
A toast to you!!

Love, Sharon/dangrdafne

Happy Birthday Miss Demanda! I hope your 30th is fun-filled and that the next decade is as good as the last. 30 was scary for me... until I got there. Then it was easy peasy... and from here, the numbers mean nothing! I know you said you didn't want this photo to ever see the light of day, but let's face it, it's too good to pass up. It was awesome meeting you in August and I can't wait to see you again in Hawaii, fingers and toes crossed. Until then, big squeezy cuddles, bewb nuzzles and arse gropes. Have a champagne cocktail for me sweetie.

 There you have it. The votes are in. People love you!  Hope you have a phenomenal Birthday. Don't let there be ANYTHING borderline about it. See you for drinks tonight and you better have these on since they were in your Mustache Party Pack that I bought you.

I know this isn't you... but I don't have a picture of you wearing them yet.

                 Love you bunches...

..because, how could I not??


Dangrdafne said...

I seriously have tears in my eyes -some from the pure laughter I got out of these wishes but mostly from all the love and friendship that pours out from each of them.

What a gorgeous post Jaymes! You are a phenomenal friend.

Happy Birthday Amanda!!

I love you all!!

Anonymous said...

Nevermind the Borderline. You guys are both Phenomenal.

I love that your friendship is old enough to be legal... it could drink in NZ it's so old. That's awesome.

I can't wait to see you both again. And I also NEEEED a pic of Amanda in those mustache glasses. Brilliant.

That's so great that Jaymes loves you as much as your new friends! Have fun in the 30's! The 40's are awesome too. I know I'm having a blast!

Happy 30th Birthday!!!

Chloe Cougar said...

I hope that by the time you're reading these comments you're three sheets to the wind (= extremely drunk) and unable to assimilate all of the lurve that's been directed your way today.
You know what? Your partner-in-crime, Jaymes, is awesome - just as awesome as you - and she's got majorly mighty cojones for pulling this off without you knowing (tell me you didn't know, please!).
Anyhoo, I sincerely hope you've had a whole series of wonderful birthday celebrations, and believe me when I tell you - IT ONLY GETS BETTER!!!

Happy 30th birthday again, Amanda. I'd say you already got the best gift...18 years ago.

Thanks for the invite to participate, Jamie. You rocked putting this together. Your love and sense of humor are shining brightly.

Great job on the cards, videos, and sentiments, too, kidz.

I love being a part of this group!


My After Car said...

Amanda, I feel so incredibly blessed and lucky to have you as a friend. Just thinking about you makes me smile and I hope that you have an incredible birthday! Love you girl!

Renesmo says: Dear Auntie Amanda, I can't wait to meet you! Thank you for being such a wonderful friend to Mommy.

Also? You're old. I will maintain that position (twss!) for the next 11 months... at which time I will also become old. :) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo!

Z Any Mouse said...

Happy Birthday, Amanda! All that Kellan deliciousness, lucky you!!

VitaminR said...

Happy Dirty Thirty!!!!! I am lame and uncrafty but I am here to wish you all the best. Just remember 'Dirty Thirty' is way better than 'Sporty Forty'. I am going to go cry in my soup now....I am old....you are young. xo

Great post Jayme and all that participated.

Happy birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!

TongueTwied said...

Amanda, Hope you have a terrific day!

So much wonderfulness here AND so much Kellan! You are blessed and lucky!

Welcome to your thirties! Happy Birthday!

(Loved reading everyone's cards. You threw a great party Jaymes!)

LoriAnnTwiFan said...

I am overwhelmed with the awesomeness in this post! It leaves me feeling pretty uncrafty like VitaminR because I just dont have those skills...yet. Anybody wanna tutor me? lol

I am happy to have met you in Forks and wish we could have spent a little more time together. So many people and such limited time! The thirties are so much better than the twenties, in my opinion, so WELCOME! I hope you had a fantabulous day, and we hope you have lots of great pics that will never see the light of the web. hehehe.

Rikki_DD said...

There are a few rules for keeping Bolton for the weekend.

1. Don't untie him no matter what he says. He keeps trying to escape and that isn't good.

2. If you tickle him in just the right spot under his balls, he'll shout "Now back to the good part"

3. The ballgag is a must because he's been trying to shout for help. Can't let that happen!

All joking aside (maybe...) happy birthday! 4 days isn't enough to spend time with your awesome self! I'm jealous of Jamie for getting you all the time. Hell, I'm jealous of you for getting Jamie all the time too!

Twi-Lin said...

Amanda - Happy Birthday again! My life is bless to have you as a friend! XOXO

Jamie - What a great post! I am also blessed to have you as a friend!

You two bring joy to me and others!

Love you!

MrsKassieCullen said...

Happy birthday Amanda! You're gonna rock the dirty thirty!!

Great post Jamie :)

Musing Bella said...


OMG, I love everyone's cards and videos. Jamie, you rawk for putting this all together - thanks for letting us all participate!!

Can't wait to see Amanda in those mustache glasses - love the middle school pic with the blown-out curled bangs, I rocked those back when, too. ;)

My w/v is "poles," which seems apropo for your dirty thirty, bb. Poledancing with the mustache glasses!!!!

Dearest Demanda,

After reading this post 3 things are clear:
1. You are loved greatly by tons of h00rs and your awesome.
2. I dont have nearly enough Kellan porn, cuz dayum!
3. I think there are enough shots of Kellan's 6 pack to count as candles and you should do your absolute h00r best to blow him as a thsnk you.

I love you girlie! Dont be upset about being in your 30's you r gonna love em... cuz the orgasms are better, seriously. ;)
