Birthday have always been a huge thing for me ever since I was little. My parents always made a big deal and I looked forward to planning my birthday party for months. And are you even surprised that at all my birthday parties we did some type of craft? I always thought it was so cool to do a craft project at my parties instead of the usual cake, ice cream, and chatter. I also hated birthday cake so my dad would go out and buy me a chocolate chip coffee cake decorated with my favorite obsession from that year like Snoopy or Kermit.
That's why it's kind of hard for me to be an adult and have a birthday...I feel like some of the excitement is gone. Since my birthday is on a Wednesday, I can't take off work in the middle of the week. So I'm stuck working today, but I'm off Friday so I can have a birthday celebration weekend!(Or cake works too...)
So while I know my birthday isn't what it was when I was 5, I'm going to make the best of it. I have plans for all 3 days to see family & friends and I'm really looking forward to it!
