I can't believe that I'm 37 today! Well, if you want to get exact about it - I was born October 8th, 1972 at 6:13pm, so I have a little time left to feel young, lol. My mom said that I interrupted my doctor's dinner, demanding to be born. She was mowing the yard. Don't ask me why she was mowing the lawn at 9 months, she refuses to answer me. Though, when I was pregnant with my son, I was scrubbing the bathroom floor w/ a toothbrush the night before I went in to have the labor induced. It must run in the family, lol.
It's a bit of a reflection day for me. I was born in my favorite month during my favorite season. No complaints here. The 80s were and will always be my favorite time to grow up in. I think I have a memory that goes with every song released in the 80s, lol. One of my favorite scenes from a movie is in Sixteen Candles when Molly Ringwald gets her man at the end. There's cake, a kiss, and a great song playing. I know that's how I'll feel tonight when hubby serves my cake (gluten free for health reasons) and leans in for the kiss :)
One of my favorite birthdays ever was when I turned 7. I had 18 girls and 1 boy - George - I had such a crush on him! The theme was Wonder Woman and I made him kiss me in front of all my friends or I wouldn't let him have cake. I'd have to say not much has changed since then ;)
This time around hubby is taking me to my favorite gluten free pizza place, to see the movie Whip It (I so can't wait for that), and then back home for the cake, ice cream, and gifts! I've asked for Borders giftcards. There are a ton of books that I'm itching to buy! I dropped enough hints the last few months, lol.
But as much as I like to receive gifts - I enjoy giving them out too. Leave a post and you're entered to win a copy of one of my Resplendence titles: Their Lady Liberty, Breakfast at Tiffany's or Immortally Theirs - it will be winner's choice.
