…whatever will be will be. Oh, give me a break. I started out the week with a migraine and am ending it with one.
Today Isa-boo-lee (one of Isabella’s many nicknames) is three years old! Boy, time sure does fly, eh? She started out the day as a crankpot and I hope she is cheerier now. No plans as far as I know but that could change.
What shall we talk about today? Hmmm…
How did your family celebrate birthdays when you were a child? Or did they? My situation was a bit different as my birthday is the day after Christmas. My parents always made sure my bd stood apart from the holiday and it made me feel very special – and my siblings a bit jealous.
What is your perfect bd scenario? Once again, being the day after a major holiday, my perfect day is one of rest! Himself always wants to take me out to dinner and doesn’t get that I just want to take it easy. Otherwise, having a tea or brunch with all my girlfriends present would be fantastic! Even though they are very different, whenever I bring them together for a home demonstration and they meet for the first or second time, they get along very well. Cool.
What is your favorite birthday memory? I must have been all of four, maybe? We still lived upstairs from my grandparents and my parents invited some family over. My favorite dessert was chocolate pudding pie and mom made it and I felt like a princess!
Has your bd ever been forgotten? All the time. People are so exhausted from the holidays that they just forget. It is made up for, though, for the times it is remembered. As I get older, it doesn’t affect me that much.
Would you love or hate a surprise party? Love, love, love it! I’ve been trying to get Himself to give me one for the last 12 years (decade bd’s). I even enlisted the help of a couple who gives the best parties ever. Oh, well. One of those bd’s he got tickets to see Phantom of the Opera in NYC, met a few friends (his) and my sister and her hubby for dinner afterward. It was special.
What’s up with you? Hope you have a blessed day, g
