Wordless Wednesday: Birthday

My husband turns 40 this week. In honor of his birthday, I pulled this photo out of the scrapbook. This is from the surprise party I threw him on his 18th birthday. Yes, 22 years ago. In my parents' basement.

Here he is hamming it up right after recovering from the surprise.

Happy Birthday Dave!

  1. Happy Birthday! I bet he hasn't changed a bit ;)

  2. Indeed. Happy Birthday!

    I love old photos. Brings back so much memories.

    Happy WW!

  3. Wow. Your husband is hot. Happy Birthday Dave! =D

  4. Happy birthday to your hubby! Love the feathered hair! Were you high school sweethearts?

  5. Happy Birthday to Dave!

  6. What a fun photo. And happy birthday to Dave!

  7. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes for Dave. I'll pass them along to him.

    @Angela -- He really hasn't changed much at all. Maybe 20 pounds heavier. Oh, and he shaves his head, too.

    @Cathy -- I love old photos, too. I guess that's why I have VOLUMES of old photo albums laying around.

    @fragileheart -- That's it. Feed his ego!

    @Jody -- Yes, we started dating in high school. Went to college together, too. I think he used more hair product than I did back then. I was a minimalist girl even in the 80s. No one has commented on it, but that's 17-year-old me standing behind him.

    @Daisy -- Thanks. I'll pass it on.

    @Caroline -- Thanks!

  8. I knew that was you and was going to say cute jean skirt!

    aw, a sweet photo and memories! :-) Happy Birthday to Dave!

  10. @Haley: haha I thought it might be but also thought maybe you weren't pointing it out for a reason. You two look so good together. Seriously though. HOT hubby. hahaha Ok I'll stop.

  11. @Jody -- Thanks, but I think I had raided my sister's closet that day (with permission, of course!). I'm pretty sure that shirt was hers.

    @starbursidereus -- Thanks! And I'll pass on the birthday wishes.

    @fragileheart -- LOL. I wasn't deliberately avoiding mentioning it. I was trying to give you guys something to comments on. :) And thanks!

    Happy Birthday, Dave...even if it's a late birthday greeting! I hope you are still a ham, BTW. Good for the soul.

    Haley, that one freaked me out this morning! Has it been that long ago? That picture brings back a whole lotta memories. Remember the pretzel fight we had down there once? they vex a person....

  15. @Vhiel -- Happy Wordless Wednesday to you too.

    @Mama Grizzly -- Yes. I did get him that day.

    @Monique -- I'll pass along the birthday wishes.

    @Karina -- You were at that party! I have photographic proof of you hanging some of the lovely streamers in the photo. And I do remember cleaning up that pretzel fight, can't remember what party it was, though. Probably in junior high. I'll pass on the birthday greeting to Dave. :)

  16. How fun is that! You're fortunate to be able to continue celebrating together.
    Happy Birthday Dave!!

  17. @MamaFlo -- I like that sentiment, that we're still able to celebrate together. And I'll pass along the birthday wishes.
