Just another day

I'm at an age where I'm supposed to hate birthdays or at the least, downplay them for fear of "getting old".  No way man!  I LOVE my birthday.  It's my own personal holiday.  I can be a diva.  I get new stuff.  People bring me cake.  I typically take the day off from work. What's not to love?
So here I am, at the ripe old age of 37, 6 months pregnant and wearing my awesome handmade birthday crown:


Yep, my fabulous husband and fabulous daughter made me a fantastic crown to wear for my birthday.  I wore it to work.  I'm wearing it at home.  T also suggested to TJ that my birthday present should be getting my nails done.  I don't know how/where she came up with that, but we were surprised at what a good idea it was.  So I'm now sporting glittery fingernails and bright almost- BMW M3 blue toes.

Birthdays are often about a new gadget for me: iPhone, iPod, camera, whatnot.  In fact Birthday iPod 2006 has been pressed into (underutilized) service as T's sleepytime "rain sounds" machine.  This year we got a new computer for our living room so that T can watch the occasional DVD there.  Plus we can use it as a digital photo frame/slideshow thingy when we're not watching anything and also stream our music through it.  It's supposed to show up today - woo hoo!
Birthday Week also has included a trip to Canlis, most years since 2005.  This year is no different. Hooray!  Today is a Good Day.

What about you - do you celebrate your birthday or try to ignore it?

  1. I -love- birthdays! No ignoring them here. I don't even mind making my own cake. =) (although J has been known to purchase nice cupcakes, too) I love that you wore your crown to work.

    1. Given your love for baking, I bet getting to bake something yummy in peace for your birthday would be pretty awesome :D

      I did get some weird looks at work but it was totally worth it.

    1. Yeah, I feel like life is getting better and better every year too. My 20s were very complicated ;D

  4. I'm with you, birthday's are the best. Mine being around Christmas means it often gets brushed under the carpet by friends. But I make it a day to remember. I almost always hold my own party and have my own appetizers, and cake and everything. Because I like celebrating me and another year of living.

    Happy Birthday BTW!

    1. I love that about you! Yeah, I feel bad for people whose birthdays get ignored around Christmas - so many friends have told me they only get one card, or a combined present, or whatnot, which is a total bummer.

  6. Happy Birthday! I love celebrating, but mine sometimes falls around Mother's Day, this year right on it. Wasn't annoying til I had a kid. Love that you wore your crown to work, awesome! I'm nearing the big 50, and starting to think about how I want to do that up.
