Confession: I LOVE birthdays.
Not just mine, but anybody’s really. I love gifts-buying and getting. I love cake and ice cream(if it’s good cake and ice cream). I love hearing people who don’t usually sing sing “Happy Birthday” at the top of their lungs. I love the fact that every person gets a day to celebrate all on their own(unless you’re a multiple, I guess…but that’s different…multiples have some kind of bond so they don’t mind sharing birthdays, right??).
So…on to the point: MY birthday. I turn 29 today! Yay for me! I know people say at some point birthdays become not a big deal, or that you don’t want them to come or whatever. I hope I’m never like that. I want to always love my birthday, or as I like to refer to it: Queen Bridget Day. Seriously, that’s how I have it written in my calendar.
Several folks have asked me what I want for my birthday. And while I love to get stuff, I saw a great idea at The Spohrs Are Multiplying that she stole from her friend Casey. Since most of you are not able to sing “Happy Birthday” to me in person or make me or cake or at least buy me some cake from my favorite cake place in the world, The Boll Weevil, I thought it would be fun to have a “comment cake”. That’s right! All you have to do to make me happy is leave me one little comment. But this isn’t all about me, you know? I also want to hear something exciting about you-something nobody else knows, some great deal you got at TJMaxx, some big event in your life, or something just down-right funny. Hurry up, stop reading and start writing!
