Happy Birthday

Tomorrow is my birthday!

You!
How many birthdays have you celebrated so far? 38
When's your next one coming up? It's tomorrow!!
If you could get anything, realistically speaking, what would you ask for? (It's my birthday, why be realistic?) Jewelry
If you could ask for something magic or like superpowers, which kind? I wish I could fly.
Who do you want to be with during your birthdays? Family. This wish came true...my parents are here!!!
How do you plan to celebrate your upcoming birthday? We are going to a band competition at MK's school, then out to dinner, and at some point this weekend, a movie. I rarely get to go to movies in the theater, so this is a big deal, because I love to go to movies.

Happy Birthday!
What was the best birthday present you've ever received? There are so many...hard to name just one. But I would have to say getting the Mustang painted for my 16th (story below.) The Big Man also gave me a leather skirt when we were in college, and that was a pretty good one too.
What was the best birthday you've ever had? Hands down, my 16th.
Why was it so great? We had tons of people at my house, and it was just a blast! My mom was scraping candy corn off the basement floor, but people helped her clean up, so she didn't seem to mind.
What is your fave birthday activity, even if you haven't done it (yet)? Going out to dinner.
Who would you love to come to your birthday to celebrate with you? Since my parents are already here, I would say my brother and his family and Shannon and her family.
Blowin' out the candles
What did your family do to celebrate your birth? My dad tried to call our family, but no one was home, so he called the operator, because he had to tell someone. I suspect my mom rested.
What happened for your 7th birthday? I had a party and got the Bionic Woman action figure!!!
What happened for your 12th birthday? Since my birthday is close to Halloween, I had a costume party. I dressed like a nun.
What happened for your sweet 16th? My mom checked me out of school early to get my driver's license, and I had a party. My dad bought a 1967 Mustang when I was in 3rd grade or so, and it pretty much moved from our garage to our driveway for years. When I was about to turn 16, I asked my dad if he could get it running. He did. It had been green and pretty rusty, but during the party, he brought it home and had gotten it painted candy apple red. It was beautiful and is such a great memory! I loved that car. I still miss it.
What happened for your 21st birthday? I worked that night, but my mom had roses delivered to me at work.
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you!
Would you be okay with dying on your birthday? One of my grandmothers did, and the other was buried on her birthday, so it's a likelihood, and that's just as good a day as any. Hopefully not this one, though.
