Here is a picture of Ben Graupner taken in New York when we are around 19. He has never been a morning person and I think that is why he is giving me the stink eye… maybe he’s the one who taught Princess A the stink eye?!?! Anyway, Happy Birthday Ben!!!

Stay Glamorous,

    Wow, Mr. Birthday Boy looks as though he is really hating life at the moment when that picture was snapped. Maybe he is neither mad at the early morning hours nor the photographer. Maybe he is dissatisfied with his choice of cereal.

    Darlin, it is NEVER a good idea to take a pic of a boy first thing in the morning. Or a girl, just saying. However, damn but he looks young there. Did we all look that young when we were 19???? I don’t believe it for a minute. Hope he has a wonderful day and thanks for sharing sweetie.

      Yes, I know it is not good to take pics in the morning but I like to pick on Ben… and anyway his morning is like 1pm.

      • luvkiss1973 February 7, 2012 at 2:23 PM #

        Is there something wrong with morning being 1pm??? Cause that’s how it works for me sometimes lol. i don’t blame ya i bet you enjoyed picking on him. He just looks like the kind of guy to get picked on lol.

    Pretty much how I look in the morning…at least until I’ve had my coffee. I give him credit though…I probably would have broken the camera if someone tried to do that to me. LOL Definitely Happy Birthday to Ben!!!

    Happy Birthday to Ben!! 🙂 Hope he has a wonderful day.
