Happy Birthday & Anniversary

Edit: So I got Kevin's computer working, yay!

So yeah I'm 25 today... so old, haha not really. I can't believe it. This weekend was pretty uneventful Kevin left this morning to go to Conneticut for business stuff, so yesterday was filled with packing. Today consisted of some video games, studying for the GRE (ack I really hate vocabulary), writing, and most of all stressing. The Faygo did help it a bit. So here are some cute and not so cute pictures of me to celebrate a quarter of a century.

Me and my grandma (who I look like)
My sisters and Grandma Peggy
The three Knapp nose generations, me, my mom, and grandma
Aw Freckles our Dalmation!
How cute was I?
When I thought I was a cool highschooler
ALSO, yesterday was the 5 year anniversary of Kevin and my first date. It was a total disaster but ended up being really fun and a great story. He took me to an independent movie theater to watch a docementary (so artsy haha), well we got there and the theater was closed as in shut down. But their were people in there so we knocked. They were Christian mimes practicing scenes from the bible for a show they were putting on. So then we drove around in his astro van, through scary east side of Detroit. Ended up in Greek town and had an awful meal. No offense but Greek food and me don't get along. Then ended the night at my condo where he proceeded to give me a kiss goodnight but tripped over the shoes in the entry and feel into me. Yep. Our second date was even funnier when he was trying to make fun of Creed and ended up falling on his face. It was the examples of how our relationship would end up being. Very silly and odd.

One of our first times out, I fell in a snow drift and puked out his car... hahah

yay! so many milestones! happy birthday! 25 is super young, let me assure you :) and congrats on 5 years with your man. my first date with my husband was a disaster, and we've now been married almost 9 years so that should tell you that sometimes first impressions aren't the best! anyway, have a great night!!

Aw. Are you the baby in the family then? My mom has red hair too.

As for the first date in an Astro van, my first date with my silver fox was in one of those and we ended up hauling his adult son home after an adventure in which he mixed too many different alcohols. 14 years later we are still together. :)

I love old family photos. These are great. And your recent ones with Kevin are good, too.

Happy Birthday Lauren!!! I loved seeing those photos... I feel like I truly know you now. Haha maybe that was a bit extreme, but it's still nice to get a peek into someone's history :)

happy quarter-century-anniversary!!! it's funny that your first date with kevin was on your birthday--both of my "major" relationships started right around my birthday, too! what's that about?

hope your celebratory festivities went a little more smoothly this time around :)

happy birthday! You can now rent a car and have cheaper insurance!
I met my husband on Friday the 13th a day before my birthday, must be good luck! haha

Thanks for the welcome. I'm still trying to figure out the whole html thing and get a banner of some sort but that's part of the process I guess lol.
