Mondays are for gif tributes. (Right? Right.)

There is so much to tell you people! I'm in the last stages of revising my book before I ship it off to the publisher in two weeks. And tomorrow I have a big announcement I'm super excited to share with you.

My friend Kaili is getting married in less than a month and just bought a house this past week and somehow saw fit to create me a gif tribute for my birthday in the midst of Not Much Going On.

This thing she made in her spare time is so amazing that I couldn't bear not to share it with you. It will change your life. Right now. Get ready. Are you ready?


By the way, here are some terms you should know for better understanding:

  • Yoobs = The small group bible study I used to lead. Full of amazing ladies I still love very much. Kaili is one of them.
  • Googlers = People who work at Google. We know a lot of them around here
  • Clipper Card = Prepaid card used for public transportation in SF
  • Dadurday = When Chris takes our boys out on Saturday and I write quietly

Without further ado, My Birthday Gif Tribute, From Kaili!!!!!!


Me on a Tuesday morning commute, realizing Thankful Tuesday is bAAAACK:

That horribly stressful second when your Clipper card does the "REJECTED" beep instead of the "PAID" beep and you think you might get in trouble or have to get off the bus:

How I feel when I get to send friends links to relevant MM posts and I get to slip in there that I know you:

When my friends in other states and posting glorious summer pictures being out on the water and getting tanned:

Then once I DO go to those other states in the summer and can't handle the humidity or get burned by a seatbelt and my thigh sticks to the seat:

When I now leave the super-casual Haight and go out in the northern neighborhoods with girlfriends:

Realizing tonight is a date night with your boo:
