Put on your PARTY hats!


YUP! its party time! tomorrows my birthday!


Unlike some people who like to stop having them and try to play them down.. I'm alll about them!


I like to live it up for my birthday..
in fact, the older i get,
the longer I think I should celebrate..
I should have the whole month of October..
the month of Vivian.

I have a friend who has all of Feb as her month..

I think my family should spoil me rotten all month long..
every single day..
you know, bring my presents, take me out to eat, bake me cupcakes,
bring me presents and brownies,
feed me ice cream,
give me money and send my shopping...

bring me presents...
do all my housework,
clean out my car..

and I think I should be given the whole month off from work..

and..
I think I should get to spend at least a couple weeks at the ocean..
or the lake in a cozy cottage,

full of all the most perfect craft supplies
and inspirational magazines
and presents!
Yeah.. thats how it should be.

HA!

I dont think my family quite has all that in mind though!

Thats ok though..


I'm just happy to have a birthday..

and look at all my little buddies...

all around my house
that have their hats on and

are ready to party with me!!

so.. happy 49th to me!
I plan on having a great birthday weekend!
I hope you have a great weekend too!
eat some cake for me..
I cant.. I'm on weight watchers!!
I am going to have a little bit of apple crisp though!
(dang! I'm freaken freez'n here!)
happy friday and goodnight!

A totally happy October everyday birthday! I thought I was bad stretching mine for a few days,,, I like your idea better! Darn, mine falls in September with only 2 days to celebrate, but you have a whole month!
Everyone's comment was deleted just to help me keep track of the items going out. The post "He Always Loved Me" which you also commented on I have saved. That is a hard one to read. A new beginning I say with this new birthday! E

I believe in long birthdays too. If your family doesn't go along with it, doesn't mean you can't treat yourself special for the month!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Viv!!!

i love all of your little party goers...they are all SO cute!!!

you have to have one piece of Birthday Cake!!! apple crisp, although yummy...just does NOT say "it's my birthday"...do it!!!

Persuaded said...

Well... personally... I think your ideas for your birthday sound completely reasonable. A birthday month? Yup. Sounds fine to me!

Unfortunately for me, my birthday is in December, and I think someone else's birthday kinda takes precedence over lil ole me;)

Happy Birthday girle!!♥

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, VIV! I hope you DO celebrate ALL through October! I SO agree! Most holidays - while AWESOME - belong to EVERYONE. But a person's BIRTHDAY is JUST FOR THEM! It should be special, wonderful, and SHOW the celebrant how much he or she is loved & valued! I don't think ANYONE outgrows that desire to be celebrated! I'm releasing the balloons over here! Have a wonderful FIRST day of your month-long birthday!
