Despite the week’s circumstances, I did NOT forget a very specific and special event.
Yes, I sent him happy birthday wishes on Twitter. Yes, we may have been in the car on the way home from my grandmother’s funeral.
But like I said yesterday, life must go on.
And it was important to me to wish him many happy returns, considering he did the same for me this year.
Funnily enough, this is not the only way I celebrated my favorite New Kid‘s birthday this year. I also got presents, in the form of a belated birthday gift from my aunt. It was apropos that I received it on Donnie’s birthday, because this is what it was:
|That’s right. Those are original New Kids buttons, from the Step by Step tour.
Two Donnie’s and a group shot. ♥LOVE!♥
Now, considering the fact that there is already a Donnie Wahlberg shrine in my bedroom…
|Of COURSE I still have my Donnie Pinata. As if you had to ask.
(And yes, he sits next to a wedding picture. Brian often comments on the irony.)
…I already had the perfect place to keep my new button collection.
Except they’re really meant to be worn, aren’t they?
Too bad they’re not the big mamma-jamma ones. You know, the ones that were a foot across in diameter that would leave bullet-sized holes in your clothes? Yeah…those were awesome.

I apologize for my lack of twitter love lately as I have been preoccupied with real life. Know that I think of you often and wonder how you are faring in your busy day-to-day life. I’ve often dreamed of finally meeting you in person (thanks to Perry Como…wait, did you read that dream sequence blog?) Perhaps if you see how I celebrated the day of your birth, you will make my dream come true in the form of a ticket for the upcoming NKOTB summer cruise, 2012. I’ll bake you some cookies. And I promise not to pinch your butt. Mostly.
All My Love,
