I've had some good ones through the years, I remember my 13th I had a ice skating/ice cream party, that was fun. My 16th, my good friends threw me a party in a barn one of the gifts I got was a pair of fingerless gloves...hey don't laugh! They were all the rage! My 18th I was away at college and my college room mate and new friends gave me a huge surprise party when I came back from studying at the library. My 21st I don't remember, not because I was drunk or anything because I've never been much of a partier, I just don't think it was a big deal. My 24th was nice; my ex-husband and son took me to a very special restaurant and when we came home our friends were there to surprise me. Every birthday I've had with my husband now has been great he has always been thoughtful, he may not have a huge blowout party but he gives me very thoughtful gifts.
Not to say all my birthdays have been great, I remember a birthday when I didn't get the roller skates I wanted SO bad! I cried *remember I'm a drama queen* and cried, and cried, and cried until my mother finally took me to get the roller skates. I'm sure she wanted to wrap them around my neck! I remember a birthday where like "Sixteen Candles" everyone forgot! Didn't even get a card! But those birthdays were few and far between.
I really have been blessed with a good life, great friends and family and because of that I decided I'd like to give someone a birthday present. I've put together a little package of some vintage fabric, lace, ribbon, a cameo pin, buttons (vintage and not so), a vintage card and a Home Planner Book by the editors of Victoria. Just leave me a comment or tell me your favorite or funny birthday memory and I will put you in the drawing for the birthday gift.
Thank you again for all the wonderful Birthday wishes.
