Toot CHRISTY’s Horn Tuesday {Birthday Edition}


It’s Tuesday and usually that means I’d come on here and toot my own horn. Pat myself on the back for how awesome I am…

But not today…because today is our Christy’s birthday, and I want to toot HER horn. Yes, that sounds wrong, but whatever.

So, here’s what we’re going to do…in the comments, give Christy some love. Your favorite memory of her, what she means to you, or just say ‘Happy Birthday!’

I’ll go first…

Christy is one of my best friends. We’ve only been in the same place in real life twice, but we email back and forth almost daily and I love that I can totally overshare with her…and she dishes it right back! My most favorite memory of Christy is running our first half marathon together. I honestly don’t know if I could have made it through the entire race alone. But we did it…together. I will never, ever forget that day. Or introducing her to vodka Red Bulls afterwards!

She makes a positive impact on my life daily and I am truly, truly blessed to have her in my life.


Love you Christy, hope your birthday is the happiest!

Now…the rest of you…GO!

    Happy Birthday Christy! How do I just pick one memory? I do have the fortune to see Christy often, we only live a few hours apart- I am so lucky! I love your coffee-drinking, sassy-girl talkin’, whoop my ass into shape, laughin’ ways! I love how my Sam drew a picture of YOUR house on his first day of school and how my youngest shares a birthday with you. BTW, in his birthday video interview, when I asked little dude who loves him, he shouted out YOUR name!!!! Hilarious. Happy Birthday girl- love you!

      Girl, we’ve known each other longer than I care to remember ;) We’ve made it through children, moves, hard times, more children, and a couple more children! I credit my sanity (or what’s left of it) to you! Love you bunches!!

    I love, love, love this girl! We make such a good team! I have so many favorite memories with her, but I think my most favorite lately is when she was at my house last month and we were watching sappy chick flicks -hello, The Notebook- and Christy, my daughter, and I all had the ugly cry going on. ;)

      You’re my best skank, and I’ll love you forever!!!

    Awww, Heather! I love you so much, and consider you one of my BFFs. I will always remember that day in San Diego, crossing the start and finish line together, and getting sloppy with gigantic hamburgers afterwards. And thank you for the Red Bull and vodka – it was life changing.

    Happy Birthday Christy! I love you gurl! I remember the first time we met in California, AMAZING! I have looked to you for inspiration and now am doing the unthinkable – running a marathon. And honestly, I credit some of my motivation to do so to you and the Shrinking Jeans community!

      Renee, thanks so much for your words! They mean so much to me, and all of us here. I am so glad we had the chance to meet and get to know each other! Keep running girl! Every time I see your updates and your pictures post run, I smile and give you a little fist pump :) xoxo

    Happy Birthday Christy!!! My favorite memory is actually meeting you in person in Chicago last winter. I loved that it didn’t feel the least bit weird and we just picked up like we had known each other all our lives. You are amazing, awesome and totally my inspiration. I love you, Christy. Thank you so much for just being you.
