Last year, I planned to have a big Girl’s Night Party for my 29th birthday. I was going to call it 29 and Holding, rent a banquet room, and invite all the females in my family and my girlfriends.
It didn’t happen. I can’t remember now what prevented it – if it was too much money, or I ran out of time, or whatever.
My preference for birthdays is surprise parties. I, myself, have thrown several surprise parties for friends and families. I love it! But, of course, they say opposites attract, which means my friends/family are the kind of people who don’t throw surprise parties, at least not for me.
And I’m okay with that.
I’m a romantic at heart, which means (my opposite) Brett is about as romantic as a shoe tree at Christmas.
I love going out - attending parties, plays, movies and just being in a crowd. Which means…(my opposite) dearest friends enjoy staying home, making popcorn, and watching a video with an intimate group of friends.
And, that’s of course WHY I love them – for being who they are – and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
With that obligatory niceness out of the way… here, MY FRIENDS, is what you’ve been waiting for – my Annual Birthday Wish List!
I’ll be turning th…thirt….THIRTY on August 20. Happy shopping!
