Amy Poehler celebrates her birthday today (September 16), and regardless of her past characters on Saturday Night Live and whatever roles she takes in the future, she’ll always be Leslie Knope to us.
The lead on NBC’s Parks & Recreation might just be one of the noblest characters in television history and has given us so many animated moments we just can’t keep count. That considering, in honor of Poehler’s birthday, we give you these six Leslie Knope GIFs for life’s everyday moments. Enjoy!
When talking about the Super Bowl or the day Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back
The feeling when you realize you woke up late for work after going out of your way to try and wake up early for a change
When people are jazzed for Halloween, but you just can’t wait until Christmas
When you LOVE fall but have to deal with the aforementioned Christmas enthusiast too soon
After a long week when you soak in the bathtub with your favorite adult beverage
When it comes to your ride or die crew
Happy birthday, Amy! We love you AND we like you!
