Happy Birthday to Me (and him)!

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthhhday to meeeee, happy Birthday to me!

If you'd hadn't guessed already today is my birthday! My 31st to be exact. Can't say I am very excited to have aged another year, but I did have a wonderful day! My hubby surprised me with flowers in the morning and a very "heartfelt" card! he usually gets me funny cards so I was a little surprised to get such a mushy card from him until I saw his little note under the mushy quote! Enough said!

That's how it goes from here on out. Once you turn 30, your birthday celebrations are more and more subdued, and people have wished you so many happy birthdays, that they can't think of any more creative ways to tell you how special you are! They just look for it already written in a card! I confess, I did it to him too on his birthday last week! Yes, his birthday was last week, he's just a mere 6 days older than me!

The kids made me some cute cards, daddy took care of dinner and bought us all cupcakes too. He thought he was hilarious putting all 31 candles on top of my cupcake!


When they were all lit my four year old exclaimed, " the fire department is going to come!". Ha! he also asked if I was going to have a pinata! You do know a Pinata is the true sign of an awesome birthday party, right? Sorry no pinata!

Since we went out to dinner for the hubby's b-day last week (and you practically need to take out a second on your home to pay for dinner and a babysitter these days!) I opted to keep it casual today. I'd much rather be in bed early with a new movie anyways!

So since I'm celebrating my second year in my 30's, I'd like to celebrate with you all with a giveaway! The winner will be able to choose one of the vintage charm necklaces shown below! To be entered, just leave a comment with your name, the necklace you'd like, and a way to contact you. The winner will be drawn on Monday April 20th.

OK, off to enjoy the rest of my birthday! See ya!

Happy Birthday (and happy belated birthday to your hubby).
I also noticed the decline in excitement over birthdays after 30.
It's like "woohoooo!!! I'm 29!!" then "whoaaaaaa. I'm 30" and then "yeah whatever, I'm 31 (or 32, or 33)"
At least we can smile knowing that we are officially vintage charms ourselves!

(I am partial to the necklace with the wonderful square bead and tiny wee locket).

You brought me out of exile for this one! I'd have to choose either the first or the last necklace, although they're all wonderful!
Happy belated!!
