If you know me well, you know I’m really into birthdays. I love celebrations of every sort, and the chance to make a cake and blow up balloons is one I hate to pass up.
Usually, I get to stand back and celebrate other people. I make a real effort to make sure my friends and family members get a card in the mail if that is all I can do, but when I can be there I want the whole shebang- cake and candles are mandantory. This excitement also extends to my own birthday.
I love my birthday! I think everyone should take their birthday off work and celebrate, no matter how old they are. Everyone should blow out candles and treat themselves to another scoop of ice cream.
Because that is what birthdays are about!
My birthday is coming up soon, on May 9th. Luckily it falls on a Saturday this year so I don’t have to request any time off work. (Although I will probably leave early on Friday…. shh!)
Last year Steve threw me a “Surprise” Birthday Fiesta at my brother’s house- complete with streamers, balloons, a taco bar, and a homemade pinata. It rocked, we had a blast.
For Steve’s last birthday we had won a free hotel stay at the Anniversary Inn in Salt Lake, so we booked a room, but then we moved to Washington… Driving to Utah for a free hotel stay midweek really wasn’t a viable option. We both ended up working and his party consisted of dinner with my family and grandparents and a chocolate cherry cake.
I think we’ll most likely be celebrating my birthday this year with family the night before, as my birthday also happens to be Prom Day, so Lizzy will be needing to share the limelight a bit on Saturday with lots of primping and priming.
So what else? Any suggestions for a poor newlywed couple who wants to have a fun 25th birthday celebration? I need help! I want to party!
