Happy Birthday Mommy!

by Meghann on September 2, 2009

Today my beautiful mother turns 45!

I know, I know my Mom is a youngin! Her and my Dad were married when she was barely 18 and then she had my twin brother and I when she was 20. In fact by the time she was my age she already had 4 kids! Crazy!!

Fun Facts About My Mom:

  • She is obsessed with Facebook and uses it to keep track of her 4 kids
  • While raising the four of us my Mom managed to attend Nursing School at night to become a RN. I remember attending her graduation!
  • She has an identical twin sister!
  • Every year she goes to the Dominican Republic on Medical Mission Trips.
  • She graduated from the same High School I did in 1982.
  • She lived in Huntsville, Alabama until she was 15.
  • She had braces the same time I did back in the late 90s
  • We share the same middle name

Happy Birthday Mom!!! I hope its a good one! πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday to my Aunt Liz too!!

Can you tell them apart? Personally I think they’re fraternal, but what ever. πŸ™‚

My parents just happen to be going to Key West this weekend as well to celebrate my Mom’s birthday, so I will wait until then to wish her Happy Birthday in person. πŸ™‚

This morning I woke up and ran 5 miles at a comfortable 9:30 pace. Tomorrow I plan to work on my speed with a nice tempo run. I’ve never actually attempted a tempo run before so I am interested to see how I handle it. πŸ™‚

After my run I had a nice cold bowl of Muesli waiting in the fridge.

  • 1/2 container Strawberry Chobani
  • Soy Milk

  • Raisins

  • Kiwi
  • Blueberries
  • Flax

I love how thick and creamy the muesli gets over night. Its really a pleasure to eat.

DUDE. your mom graduated high school two years before i was born. that seriously freaks me out.

my mom was born in 1945!!!!!!!!!

5 Meghann September 2, 2009 at 9:00 am

She only graduated High School 3 years before I was born. I was definitely not ready to be married with kids at that time!

6 Courtney September 2, 2009 at 9:00 am

Good luck with your tempo run! The muesli looked delish…I need to try that soon!

Happy Birthday Meghann’s Mom!! So cool that she goes to the DR for mission trips, I went on a 10 day mission trip there 5 years ago and the country stole my heart! I even “adopted” a child over there that I pay for his education and some other misc expenses.

Happy Birthday to your mom! What a youngin’ she is.

My mom had me a bit later in life, although not as late as my grand mother had her…. my grandmother waited till she was 40 to have my mom…. and that was in the 40’s!

happy bday to your mama! the keys sounds like an awesome way to celebrate a bday!

10 Casey @ DoubleScooped September 2, 2009 at 9:08 am

That is SO weird I’m going to the keys this weekend also. We’re staying in Islamorada, though.

Do you know about the secret pizza place on the way to Key West??

Happy b-day to your mom.

SUCH a beautiful tribute. Wishing your mom many more years of happiness!! πŸ™‚

Happy Birthday to your mom (and Aunt Liz too)! Here I thought my mom was the only young one! She’s only a year younger than yours, and her birthday is this month as well.

Today is actually my grandma’s birthday, so there’s a fun fact.

18 Casey @ DoubleScooped September 2, 2009 at 9:21 am

It’s called the “No Name Pub” and it’s located in Big Pine Key. They say its “secret” because it’s somewhat difficult to find but I’m sure they’re listed online somewhere :).

It’s really yummy pizza, drinks, and other random stuff. Plus, the decor – while not elegant, is pretty fun and laid back – a true KEYS restaurant lol.

Happy Birthday to your Mommy πŸ™‚

I did a tempo run this morning! Good luck on yours.

20 Nicole September 2, 2009 at 9:32 am

Happy Birthday to your Mom!!

21 Casey @ DoubleScooped September 2, 2009 at 9:34 am

It does have a website! http://www.nonamepub.com/

It’s worth checking out. πŸ™‚

22 Haleigh September 2, 2009 at 9:35 am

Happy B-day to yo Mama, and have fun w/the tempo run! If you’re looking to get a PR – you MUST do speedwork. It really is the key to increasing your speed (and VO2 max) – both tempo runs and interval runs are great and also give you some variation too!

26 MelissaNibbles September 2, 2009 at 9:48 am

Happy Birthday to your Momma!

27 Stephanie September 2, 2009 at 9:51 am

40 Julie September 2, 2009 at 11:21 am

Great breakfast combo too!

41 Anne Marie@ Her New Weigh September 2, 2009 at 11:25 am

42 Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) September 2, 2009 at 11:25 am

My mom had 4 kids by the time she was my age too! She’s turning 47 this year. (I’m a year older than you)

That’s so cool that your mom is a twin and you are a twin.

43 Quinn September 2, 2009 at 11:42 am

That is so cool that both you and your mom are twins! There must be somethin’ in your gene pool! Happy Birthday to Her!

44 Melissa September 2, 2009 at 11:43 am

Happy birthday to your mommy! πŸ™‚ I was laughing as I read this because my mom is 45, she was 18 when she was married, 20 when she had me, and is a 1982 HS graduate too! Hahahaha.

45 Courtney September 2, 2009 at 11:51 am

Happy Birthday to your mum! She’s cute! πŸ˜€

I didn’t know you had your nose pierced! How could I have missed that?

46 Meghann September 2, 2009 at 11:54 am

I had it pierced in college and then some after that. I took it out last summer when I started applying to jobs in orlando πŸ™‚

47 Derek September 2, 2009 at 3:54 pm

I miss the nose ring πŸ˜‰

48 Derek September 2, 2009 at 3:55 pm

oops, nose piercing…

49 Sammie September 2, 2009 at 11:56 am

Happy Birthday Meghann’s Mom!!!

50 Jenny September 2, 2009 at 12:03 pm

happy birthday to your gorgeous mother! Forget 45, I hope I look that good when I’m 25!

51 Julie September 2, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Happy birthday to your mom and aunt!! She’s so young, it must’ve been cool to have a young mom! It probably still is! And kudos to her for going to nursing school while having 4 kids. That couldn’t have been easy.

And, I think your mom is a triplet. Your sister Kelly is the spitting image of her.

52 emielli September 2, 2009 at 12:32 pm

Happy birthday to your mom and your aunt! It must be a great birthday to be able to take a trip for it!

53 Breanne CLough September 2, 2009 at 12:44 pm
