~my thoughts about life~

Wednesday, March 7, 2012


Today is Wednesday, so I'm linking up with Mamarazzi for We Want to Know!  Join in the fun!

{1} What is your favorite way to celebrate birthdays?
Mine- getting together with a bunch of friends.  Each year for my birthday, my mom and best friend will organize a birthday lunch for me.  Usually, Hubby and I will go out that night.  Cooking on my birthday is strictly forbidden.

The Kids- I like to have parties here at my house.  For milestone birthdays, I like to do something special.  Both of the boys have had surprise parties for their 10th and I'll probably do the same thing for the girls.  (Big Sis hopefully won't realize both her brothers had surprise parties for their tenth.)  Son #1 turns 13 on Friday the 13th this year, so I need to think of something great to do.  I can't believe he's that old already!

{2} Which is more fun to celebrate? Celebrating yours or your loved ones?
Of course the best answer would be to say I enjoy celebrating others' birthdays better.  But that's simply not true.  Call me selfish, but I love celebrating my own birthday.  That doesn't mean I'm happy about the age I'm turning, but I love some personalized spoliling once a year!

{3} What is your dessert of choice for birthday celebrating?
I always make a very special cake for the kids.  Big Sis starts talking about her cake 364 days before her next birthday.  Here are some of the favorites I've made:

{4} Tell us about your best birthday you've ever had.
My 30th was fun.  I thought for sure that Hubby was planning a surprise party for me.  He didn't, but that was OK.  We ate at my favorite restaurant with my parents and brother and sister-in-law.  The following weekend, a bunch of friends and I stayed in a hotel and went shopping all day.  We had dinner somewhere fancy and had a great girls day out. 

{5} Share your favorite birthday song.
I only know one birthday song; are there more?  My family always harmonizes on the last line...it's kind of our thing.  I think everyone in my extended family can actually sing, so it works.

{6} Bonus question: if you could pick any age to be again, how old would you be and why?
That's a really tough question.  There are a couple years I would pick just so I could get a re-do.  One of my favorite years was probably 23 because it was the first year I was a mom.  I kind of really like the age I am now - 29 (for the 7th time).
