Say it ain't so... Mama Hooker turns the BIG FIVE-OH!!!!


Dearest Mama Hooker,
I love you to the moon and back.
{One of these days Mom, to da moon-total inside joke moving along}
You are not just my Mother, you are one of my very best friends.
We have been through so much together, some good times, and some bad.
{Ya... like that one time I wrecked your new car into not one, but two fence posts, on a dairy farm because I freaked out and hit the gas instead of the brakes}
I couldn't imagine going through life with any other Mom than you =)
You have ALWAYS been my number one fan.
You have kissed my boo boo's, wiped my tears, made me laugh until I peed my pants, and made me so mad I felt like I could spit fire.
You have provided for me even if it meant you had nothing.
It was just you and I for a long time against the world.
You are, and always have been, my safe place.
I know with you I can let down my walls and be myself.
Your proud of me.
You support me.
Most importantly you have shown me an unconditional love like no other.
 
I love that we can have fun together.
That we can drink together...  CHEERS!
That we can do absolutely nothing at all and it can still be fun.
You are one of the sweetest people I know.
You wear your heart on your sleeve and everyday I aspire to be more like that.
You are smart and don't look a day over 25 {which is younger than I am right now by the way}.
Thanks for sacrificing meals, clothes, even a new hair do for the things that I wanted in life.
You are a wonderful Mama and an excellent Gigi.
 
Kevin, the girls, and myself are lucky to have you!
 
So blessed that we are able to celebrate 50 years of a beautiful soul today!!!
Can't wait to throw some down in honor of you tonight!!!
 
Cheers to somebody who can rock silver eye shadow like nobody's business, dances with her fingers pointed to the sky and makes it look cute, and resembles my sister instead of my Mom!

 
PS Just for shits and giggles and probably a very hard smack in the head for your viewing pleasure I give you my Mother in all of her glory!!!
HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY MAMA!!!!
Side note:  She was describing a ginormous bug that had been flying around our heads all day.  Ya had to be there but it's still hilarious!

  2. Happy Birthday to your Mama! This post was so sweet and it is great that you two have such a close bond. By the way, I also mistook the gas for the break when I was 16 and ran straight into the garage door. Good times.
