Ketchup With Us #25

Man, have I been hit by a lot of birthdays lately! As you might know, ODNT just celebrated her 2nd birthday. (Naturally, I forgot and wrote about it a week later.) Oh, and my friend, Derek? 40! And his wife, Ashley? Also, 40! (Yes, I just outed you two on national blogavision!) Who else? Who else? Oh, yeah. And Ketchup!!! Did you guys know that KetchupWithUs turns one today? Yes, that’s right. Mel and I have been making asses out of ourselves wearing full-body ketchup costumes in public for no pay for a whole year now! My mom is so proud. It’s a banner day here at ODNT!

I only wish we had more birthdays to celebrate around here. It’s too bad. Because it really feels like we need just one more, doesn’t it? Just one more birthday would make the place feel festive. I might even decorate. Or bake a cake. (I know, right? Me? Baking?) Oh, well. Guess we’ll just have to settle for celebrating ODNT, Derek, Ashley and Ketchup.

Oh, wait!!! Have I mentioned yet that TODAY IS MEL’S BIRTHDAY?!!? No, I don’t think I did. (wink) Just to mess with her. Out of playful spite. (To the birthday girl. You guys probably shouldn’t be reading this part.) You know I love you, my friend. And I can’t wait for the next time we get together. I’ve been practicing my Bitchy-Resting-DuckMouth.


Hey, you guys! Go tell Mel Happy Birthday! Or Tweet, Facebook, Instagram and Pin her. And read her blog! It’s way better than mine … plus you might actually learn something while you’re there.

Now … onto to KetchupWithUs #25 …

June 10, 1977 – My parents took me to see Donny & Marie Osmond the day before my birthday. It’s all I wanted. I was so little. I wore a pretty, purple dress. And I truly believed I’d get to meet them that night. 


Of course, I did make that little girl’s dreams come true a few decades later.


For a QUICK EXPLANATION of this link-up, click here. In short, Mel and I will post a picture or video with a prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. And, with each prompt, we’ll feature a linker from the previous KWU. Which reminds me …

  1. Happy birthday to my Mel! Love you gals!

  2. Well, my dear, I can’t wait to see that face when we meet again. 🙂 Thank you so much for baking me 12 cakes and putting them in separate plastic packages, then decorating a box. You are a wonderful “Hostess.” (See what I did there?)

    Love you and thanks for all your support! Xo You’re top notch.

  3. Happy first Ketchup Birthday you guys! One full year of saucy humor! I’m fashionably late for the linkup again. Michele, the Osmonds were my first concert! I don’t remember how old I was, but I wore my purple Donny socks. Pretty cool that you got to meet them!

  4. Happy birthdays all around! Where’s the cake?
