I guess I just have to embrace it, huh. Every year I try to down play my “special” day. I try not to call attention to myself. I try not to broadcast it to anyone. I’ve even thought about maybe even taking that little bit of info off my FB page. Oh who am I kidding, of course I want people to know… I kinda like the attention! 😛 I just don’t like people making a big deal about it… that’s all. Like surprise parties. Please do not EVER throw me one. I don’t like the idea of walking into a room full of people hiding in the dark and then having them jump out and yell “SURPRISE”! Not my cup of tea. Oh but presents? Yup, love ’em. Send ’em my way. Will gladly accept those. 😉
So… what is acceptable:
- Like I’ve said… presents… gifts… LOVE those. Always.
- Monetary gifts (all you Asian peeps, you know what I’m talkin’ ’bout)
- Taking me out to dinner to celebrate (I love food. Remember that, k?)
- Going on trips. With peeps I love.
- Just a simple call would make my day… or even a text.
And one of my favorite things to get for my birthday are these…
Coupons sent from my favorite stores…
Hey… every dollar off counts!
Okay, okay. So maybe AE didn’t exactly send me a coupon for my birthday. But it is my birthday month. And I get to splurge a little. And I just got excited about it so I decided to share it with ya’ll.
I have more birthday coupons somewhere around here, just can’t find them at the moment. But you get the idea.
This is why I love my birthday. It gives me an excuse to shop for myself. I soooo deserve to be spoiled. 😛
