Happy Birthday Laura!

002Today I dedicate my blog to my best friend and wonderful fiancé Laura. Today is her birthday so I wanted to write this post about her.  I talk about her a lot on Twitter and people have come to know her by name, and a few, by actually getting to meet her.  But today, I wanted to let you in a little more on my personal life and talk to you about how much she means to me.  At the end I am going to ask for your help with something.

Why this is funny…

You have to understand some of the underlying humor with me doing this. Laura wants nothing to do with blogging or social media. She has successfully deleted her Facebook account twice.  It’s not that she doesn’t understand it.  It’s just not for her, right now.  Of course, she doesn’t mind that I’m out making my career in this field.  But that is where you really get to understand how awesome she really is.

Why I am doing this…

Laura is the best friend and fiancé any guy could ask for.  She supports me more than I could ever ask for or expect.  Whether it’s traveling last minute 10,000 miles away for 10 days or relocating to another state for a new opportunity.  No problem.  If I need to stay up all night and do work? That’s ok.  Bring my laptop on vacation?  She understands. She actually encourages me to do work because she knows I love what I do and she knows that my only end goal is to make a better life for us and our future family.

The fact that she supports my crazy work habits aren’t the only reason why she is awesome. There are a million other reasons why.

Laura is super smart (graduated with above a 3.9 GPA), beautiful, caring and understanding.  I am very lucky that she is my future wife.  I love her more than words can explain.  She is the best part of my day.

For those that don’t know, I lost both of my parents due to medical issues, 5 months apart from one another, during my senior year of high school.  Holidays and certain anniversaries suck because of this.  Sometimes I get sad because I miss them.   Laura has been the rock in my life to support me through the hard times that come along with that kind of loss.  Her family has also opened their arms wide and treat me like their son.  It’s more than I could ever ask for.  For it I will be forever grateful.

This post is one way for me to thank her for all that she does for me and us. It’s my way to wish her a very Happy Birthday!

So, without further ado…

Thank you Laura for being an amazing part of my life.  I love you and there isn’t anyone else that I could imagine marrying.  I look forward to continuing all of the fun that we have together.  During those times that there’s a little rain, I’m sorry.  Here’s to you beautiful!  I hope that you have a wonderful day and that this makes you smile!

Happy Birthday Laura!  I love you!

Where all of you come in…

So, at the beginning of this post I said that I needed everyone’s help with something…

Every year Laura hates her birthday because it falls on the day AFTER one of the biggest party days of the year.  That sucks.  She turned 21 the day AFTER New Years.  Our friends are always still hung over and/or tired the day after. No one ever wants to do anything and it usually ends up making her sad.  Add to that, this year she has a wicked head cold and has to work open to close at her restaurant (a 10-14hr day).

Where do you come in? My goal today is to get as many people as possible to wish her a Happy Birthday in the comments below.  Do you think we think we can get 25 people to wish her Happy Birthday? 50? 100 or more? I don’t know but I want to experiment.  It is rare that I ask for you to share out my posts so please help me out with this one.

Thanks for your help!  Happy New Year to all of you! :)

    Laura,

    Well, we dont go back many years.
    And I just met your man via Twitter.
    But the reason we are so tight, it that the big man, Mr. Brogan, is my pal, and if you are hanging with Justin, and Justin hangs with Mr. Brogan, then that makes us friends-in-law-via-twitter-via-Jeff Pulver, where I actually met Mr. Brogan. So all this to say is that there is nothing like family. And speaking of family, Passover is coming up in the Spring and so I just needed to know if we are doing Seder at your house, Justin’s house or mine. We have plenty of time, but since I live in Texas and ya’all are in Mass., and the economy has gone south, we should really start thinking about airfares and all. Oh- the wedding. I know this is a bit much, but I was asked to give Justin away. I know this is something your Dad is supposed to do for you, but hey, we’re family, this is social media, and we’re all so totally different, so I am sure you are OK with this- right.

    OMG- the wedding…. is Chris playing guitar there? We have not addressed this matter, but I am sure it can be resolved.

    Children? Well, I got two of my own, and I think you guys should really hop to it (so to speak) after you are married. I mean, after all, it’s not my business to tell you what to do and how to rush into these things, but since we are family and all, well—- I am not getting much younger and I want to see grandchildren.

    Well, that does it for now. Many happy returns and of course, looking forward to seeing you and Justin here, there and everywhere.

    Your (new) Pal,

    Alan Weinkrantz

    I’ve only just “met” Justin recently, but from this blog post, it sounds like you each are very special people who deserve each other in the most wonderful way.

    My birthday wish for you is that all your birthday wishes come true!

    For what it’s worth, my boyfriend’s birthday is Christmas Eve, and he also is not big on social media, so you’re in good company!

    Happy Birthday to Laura. And a note to Justin: my Significant Other *also* wants nothing to do with Twitter, Facebook, etc. She doesn’t even have an internet connection or a TV at her place! And no landline either — just a cell phone. So, given how uber-connected how I am, this serves as a sort of balance in our relationship.

    Best wishes for a happy new year to both of you and a wonderful 2009 birthday for Laura. Many more, and you two more than most are in for a very special year!

    HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAY WISHES LAURA!

    What a wonderful post which is such a beautiful present in itself. But I wanted you to know that I completely understand… I’m a January 2 baby as well and it’s probably the worst day of the year to be born. No one wants to party any more as they are all partied out. The restaurants are all closed because they need a break… *sigh* Such is our lot in life!

    I hope you are enjoying your day nevertheless. I know I’ve had a wonderful day!

    Happy birthday, Laura. This is what it’s all about. I don’t know you, but feel like I get a “glimpse” of you from this blog post. Good luck with your upcoming wedding plans. You and Justin are MFEO (made for each other). :)

    From what I know of Jason and how he offers all-round support and great thoughts to people he knows, it’s now obvious that he can do that because of who you are as well. It’s clear you are both like-minded and special people, and here’s to a wonderfully happy life together.

    PS – I’d have to question the “deleting Facebook account successfully twice” – doesn’t this mean the first one wasn’t quite so successful? ;-)

    Laura,
    May your day filled with sunshine
    Try to sit back and unwind
    Your photo with smile oh so bright
    Bet you are Justin’s guiding light
    If you are not here today
    So many people in your life will pray
    For that loving they’re wishing
    For that feeling they’re missing
    They will tell you it’s true
    Without you they’ll be blue
    So give yourself a smile
    Go and play for a while
    The world is better because of you
    Best of all soon one becomes two
    If loving you is a crime,
    Justin probably can’t wait to do his time
    I know this poem is cheesy,
    but it comes so easy
    When I read his post,
    of how you are his most.
    Happy Birthday!

    Happy, Happy Birthday.

    I’m not sure if the picture will show up here, so I’m taking a risk.
    Birthdays are good days for taking risks, but it’s not my birthday so I’m hoping you’ll forgive me, or at least laugh at me, if it doesn’t work. Hell, you can laugh at me if it does work.

    FYI, my birthday is Nov. 17. If you remember that come Nov. 17, 2010, I will be very impressed.

    Anyway, happiest of birthdays to you, Laura. May you have many happy returns of the day — and stop hanging out with so many drunks. ;)

One word, Twitter. Twitter and other social media platforms allows me to connect with individuals from all over the globe. We can answer or ask questions for other people, we can give encouragement, and we can even wish someone a happy birthday. Twitter has been great to me as I can connect with like minded people. I hope that you do not give up on social media as it can be very beneficial to our lives. Maybe this blog post from your boyfriend might just change your mind about Facebook and Twitter.

    Okay, I’m not trying Seesmic anymore. Just got home from the hospital, realized I needed to send along birthday wishes, am all wound up in my cranky pants and I’m not fighting with video that shuts my browser down.

    But then again, Laura, you know all about my cranky pants, right? (Ixnay on the ideosvay from egasvay … he’ll never know! … Wait … picturing one last time … ahhh … okay, done. He’ll never know.)

    Perhaps the most depressing thing about your birthday is that you’re not knocking ‘em back with me, but then again. That can be arranged. But just in case you don’t want to get any of the Fallsman on ya for this birthday, here’s the next best thing.

    In a mixing glass (or if you have it, a sterling silver snifter) and over ice, put two parts sugar water (boiled but cooled) and one to one and a half parts Maker’s Mark. Get a mint spring and cut it about 1/2 inch from the rim. Stir lightly with the mint sprig. Serve to friends, telling them to leave the sprig slightly to the side of their nose while sipping, that way they get the full julep effect when tasting.

    Now pour yourself a glass of Maker’s straight and call them all sissies.

    Happy Birthday.
