Annual Birthday Wish List

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 ththirt….THIRTY on August 20. Happy shopping!

This is hilarious. And I love anyone who includes candy on their wishlist. Being thirty is fantastic, I promise. You'll love it.

(Also? Still laughing at "shoe tree at Christmas.")

Yes, we are thankful for the guidance. It helped us last year and I'm sure it will help us again this year.

Maybe since you told people that you like surprise parties, you will get one. One never knows.

Ann Margaret-

I am so excited that you are joining the 30 club! That definitely deserves a special gift. Did you say you wanted a gift card to the Girl Scout Store?

"being transparent" Ha! I love it!

30. THIRTY. Wow. ;-)

I also love surprise parties and have never had one. But, you know, I'd want whoever was bringing me to make me dress nice. I'd kill someone if I ended up there in pjs with no make-up on.
