  1. Happy Birthday, to you!!!
    What is your all time fav present?
    Mine would be not necessarily a present but when I chose to go eat at Chuckie Cheese for my 30th birthday so I could watch my kids having FUN! It was one of my most special birthday memories, ever!

    1. Love it! My husband chose something like that this year too. He ususally goes golfing with the guys (a treat, he doesn't get out golfing much anymore), but this year he chose to go mini-golfing with the family instead. Memories - so great!

  2. Happy Birthday to you! My favorite present was back in the 80's when I got to go to Europe with my high school choir for a combo graduation and birthday present. It was amazing. Enjoy!

  3. Happy Birthday! I'm so excited for all of the giveaways this week. Thank you for letting me be part of your celebrations.

    I think my best birthday present ever was a large signed print of a drawing done by Kurt Vonnegut (my favorite author). I had been lusting over it for a while, but I never said anything to my hubby about it, so I was shocked when he bought it for me :)

    1. Wow! What a thoughtful husband! That is so cool! Isn't it nice when they can surprise us? My husband is great picking out gifts for me. He puts a lot of thought into them, and he always finds something that is just perfect!

      Thank YOU for being part of this fun week!!

  7. My favorite birthday present I received was my 30th birthday. It was a dolphin cake which I collect frogs and dolphins. I also received a bag full of goodies like eye cream, wrinkle cream, Hershey's kisses, a card, a pumice stone and a loufa and many other things. It was a bag to tell me I'm not getting any younger but all of the things I would need as I get older. It was a cute bag full of things supposed to be many gag gifts but I loved them all because it came from my honey and very rarely does he ever pick out presents for me without others help.
