Happy Birthday To Me!!




I am having the best birthday week making memories ALL OVER Chicago. You know the only thing that would make this birthday week more awesome? A blog comment extravaganza!! My actual birthday is Wednesday June 12 and I am turning 38 (gulp). Or as I prefer to think of it 29 for the 10th year in a row.

Help me celebrate by sharing something in the comment section. How long you have been reading….. why you love my blog…… how foolish rompers are on grown women….. anything at all. And thanks in advance to the best blog readers around!!


  1. I freaking LOVE having friends that are older than me!! Have a great birthday, friend!

    Happy, happy birthday! Treasure each year and birthday. You are a blessing to so many!

  4. I’m loving following your birthday trip online. Looks like you’re having a wonderful time.

    Happy Birthday to you! So glad you were born!

  5. You know, in my IRL circles I’m one of the youngest. Here on the intertubes I’m one of the oldest. So glad you reminded me of that.

    Rompers on anyone are ridiculous. They may look adorable on children, but the practicality is lacking. HOW are you supposed to go to the bathroom without completely disrobing? If a grown woman is wearing one, it completely precludes her from happy hour or a quick stop at a wine bar because there is no way she’s going to be able to pee at any point in the night. And if she does, you KNOW part of the romper is going to touch the floor. No. Rompers are not acceptable. They were surely dreamed up by men the same as One Size Fits Most pantyhose.

    Happy birthday!

  6. Happy Birthday! Spectacular people were born on this day. And Geminis rule. And rompers are dumb. And wine is superb. This is all the wisdom I have to offer at the moment. :)

    Oh for cry-eye!!!! In my head I had June 10th and my calendar CLEARLY says the 12th!! They say that this chemo brain deal goes away eventually – I can’t wait!!! Have fun celebrating in our former hometown. Love you and Miss you!!

  11. Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! You look like a monkey and you smell like one too!

    Not really, but it was honestly the first thing that came to mind. Oh, and I don’t encourage our son to tell people that they look like a monkey or smell like one either.

    You are lovely and I’m sure you smell lovely too!!

  12. Happy birthday (a day late!)!! I love coming here to see what you’re up to – Diaper Diaries was one of the first blogs I ever read!!

  14. There once was a girl named Jill
    Who loved fashion, but I like her still
    Today’s her birthday
    So it’s time to par-tay
    Though she’s almost over the hill.

    Yup. A birthday limerick for you. :) Happy birthday, friend. I love you!!!

    Happy Birthday Jill! I’m thankful our paths crossed in preschool years (!) ago. :)

    And I TOTALLY mean to getting around to sending you back the necklace that Delaney swiped from your house the last time we were there. (How did that happen? In twenty minutes time???0

  17. Oh, Jill! Happy Birthday to one of my favoritest people ever.

  19. It’s me again. Wishing you happy birthday for at least the 3rd time. Is it creepy yet? I promise this is the last one. :-)

  20. Hey! Happy birthday! I have been reading your blog since like 2007 I think. Is that right from the very beginning? Tell me so. I need to believe I am one of your oldest readers.

    ALSO you are so so so so much prettier than the stock photo lady you picked for this birthday photo. No lie. How’s THAT for a birthday comment?

  21. I hope you have a lovely birthday. :) I have been lurking for a while and now I am commenting. Have a beautiful day!

    Happiest of Birthdays to YOU! Let’s see….have known and admired you since high school, started reading your blog @ The Diaper Diaries before I had my second son, reasons I love your blog include your honesty–your writing ‘voice’–your ‘realness’–and, probably because I think it is so cool to have known you for so long. (silly, I know) Rompers are absolutely ridiculous, wine is my friend, and I believe that 4:00 should be the new 5:00.

    Hope you end your birthday week in a spectacular way!

  23. Stephanie says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for about 2 years. I enjoy your straight talk on lots of things =) Hope your b-day is awesome! The 30’s are great!

    A day late and a dollar short as usual (actually two days). Happy Birthday to one of my favorite bloggers!
