Birthday Bash!

Let’s Party!

I'm celebrating this weekend and you're invited!

It’s my birthday this weekend and I wanted to share it with you!  I gathered up some goodies from AAD NOLA 2012, added in a few extra specials.  Oh, come on – it'll be fun.  We'll share our best ever birthday story. OoO *raisinghand*  I have one!

One of my favorite birthdays was ten years ago, my *coughcoughcough* birthday.  Hubs and I spent a wild weekend in HotLanta.  (Mind out of the gutter, it’s not THAT kind of story.)  The NASCAR Boys were racing in Atlanta that weekend.  We had already planned on attending and getting seats in the "chicken bone" section of the track.  (If you have ever been to a NASCAR race you K-N-O-W what I'm talkin' about!)  But my boss (at that time) gave me tickets to the race.  These tickets were primo seats at the start/finish line!  It gets even better...  Just a few weeks earlier, I won tickets to see The Rolling Stones in concert - yep, in Atlanta!  We had a blast!  Partying at the Stones concert on Saturday night, getting in a few hours of shut-eye, and then heading to the track before the crack of dawn.  It was a Grand Birthday Weekend Celebration!

Not only is it my birthday, it’s an Extra Special Celebration because I have been fortunate enough to be a part of this wild, wonderful and wacky world of Bitten By Paranormal Romance for two years now!  I admit I have been somewhat MIA lately, (life doesn’t take NO for an answer), but thankfully Laurie didn’t kick me to the curb.  I have so much fun with the Pack and have met an astonishing number of interesting and colorful people from all walks of life:  I am honored to call these people My Friends.

Thank you, Laurie.

  3. Happy Birthday!!!

    Ya know one of the best birthdays I had was just last year when my dad, hubby, daughter, brother and sister in law threw me a surprise birthday party in my own apartment! They just showed up with a cake, food, presents and the funny thing was my dad's birthday is one week after mine and they wrote his name on the cake too and brought his presents too.

  4. Happy Birthday! I can't really write about my favorite birthday. Let's just do some math instead. Birthday + husband - child = ???!!!

  5. What a great birthday that had to have been! My best birthday was when my dad treated me to a cruise for my 40th birthday. It was fabulous!

  6. My best birthday would have to be about 3 years ago when my parents and brother threw me my first surprise party. They planned it out great and I was totally surprised.

  7. The 1st year that both my kids came in and told me they wanted to make me breakfast :) Also one were it was just me and my hubbie together and we spent the whole day just the 2 of us :) Now that dont happen to much.
    ~Happy Birthday~ Hope you have a great day!

  8. Happy Birthday!!! Oh lawd. I have the worst birthday luck and I swear I had a birthday curse for about 10 years!! *shudder* However, last year was probably one my fav's! Me and a couple of my friends went to Houston and attended a Kim Harrison and Patricia Briggs signing. Afterwords we went a bar type of thing with a live band. It was loads of fun! One of my first ever girls weekend!!

  9. Happy birthday! One memorable one was going out to eat at a favorite restaurant with family and friends.


  10. My favorite birthday was from college. One year, I was surprised by my mom and grandparents! They took my best friend and I out for dinner. I remember wearing my jean jacket because they took a photo of me, holding a snowball (my birthday is the end of April!

  23. My favorite birthday was my 30th birthday. I had just found out I was pregnant with my 4th baby and I was a little depressed. Little did I know that my husband planned this huge surprise party for me. He even flew my father in! I cried like a baby. lol
