Happy Birthday to Me...and Gifts for YOU!

Yes, it's that time of year again....when you miss being a kid and getting the great parties LOL. As an adult, birthdays kinda get tucked to the side in between laundry and work....and as a wife/mother, we usually end up either baking or buying our own cake--We have to! That's like the best part of the whole day--no guilt birthday cake one day a year LOL.

What's your favorite part of a birthday?

Leave your answer and, even though it's my birthday today, I'll give away the presents today. I'll randomly be picking names and giving away the following:

~One copy of my release, The Apple of His Eye

~One copy of my release, The Theory of Love

~One copy of my children's ebook, The Troll in the Chicken Coop

~Two FUN-STUFFED envelopes full of, well, Fun stuff LOL

~One 'To Imagine is Everything' notebook and a pen

AND

~One 'LOVE' bracelet.

Again, simply tell me your favorite part of a birthday! This is a TWO day party so feel free to invite your friends over--the more the merrier!

  4. Stacy, what a sweet thing to do! My favorite part about having a birthday is being thankful for the past year (and not having to relive it ;)) AND ice cream! (Well, cake too, but ice cream!)

    Hope your birthday's a fabulous and memorable one, and may the coming year bring you lots of fulfilled dreams and new joys and hopes!

  5. Happy birthday, Stacy! My favorite part about having a birthday is simply feeling special for a whole day. Like you said, as mothers and wives, we usually take care of everyone else and get very little ourselves, so it's nice to indulge in others doing for us, if only for one day.

  7. I avoid birthdays and holidays but birthdays are good for one thing for me: it gives me an opportunity to look back on the past year and see how far I've come (or missed) in terms of personal growth, emotional and spiritual, and how I've measured up in learning to take time for myself such as in doing my interests (writing and now PSP).

  8. Thanks everyone for coming to my party!

    Awww, that's sweet, Lynda!

    LOL Lindsay!

    Lora! Great to hear from you!

    flchen1 and Frost, very good views indeed. If we don't grow and change in some ways, then what do we have to show for the year we were blessed with.

    Deirdre, yep mothers kinda get the short end of the stick in one way, but so much more in other ways.

    Sarah! Hi! Yep, that's true. We were always taught to put others first so it's nice to have a day just about us for a little bit.

  9. Happy Birthday, Stacy! Last year the best part of my birthday was that my kids brought me breakfast in bed and I didn't even have to ask them or remind them it was my birthday. The best part of my birthday is that I can read all day and no one will say a thing about it. No complaining because mom reads to much.

  11. My favorite part of a birthday is having people make me feel special. Let's face it, in today's hectic world, feeling special isn't a luxury we get anymore. We're supposed to be selfless and put others first. That's what I love about birthdays. For one day out of my life, I have the right to feel it should be all about me. :)

    Here's hoping you have a special day, and it's all about you!

  12. My favorite part of a birthday is visiting with my family. Coming from a large family where most of them are traveling its hard to have a 'family' day. Birthdays are those days.

    Happy Birthday to you, hope its as wonderful as you're wishing.

  13. Rebekah and Angie--oh yes! When someone else waits on us for a change, that is like the best gift!

    Very true, Emma! Princess for a day, my friend told me just this morning LOL

  14. Patricia--birthdays are good for that. We're headed over to my sister's tonight to celebrate with the family

  15. I survived being hit my a car when I was 16.

    I survived oral cancer in my mid twenties.

    I survived a little bitty heart attack at the beginning of this year.

    My favorite thing about Birthdays? That's I'm still having them!

  21. Happy Birthday, Stacey. The best part of a birthday day is when your family and friends remember and wish you happy birthday without being reminded.

  22. Happy Birthday, Stacy!

    My favorite part of a birthday is definitely eating a sinful slice of cake and not feeling one bit guilty. Or if my husband takes me out to dinner... Then again, last year, he was out on travel so I spent my b-day alone. When we did go out to a Hibachi restaurant a few days later, the kids sobbed because they thought the chef was going to set them or me on fire. :/

  23. Another September b-day. Woot (mine was earlier).

    Best part of birthdays? It's not about being another year or seeing another year, it's not about presents, but it's about being with loved ones and friends, to know that you are special in their lives that they want to spend your special day with you.

    My birthdays are always great when I spend it with my family and friends. My friends made my last one rock.

  25. Hey, Happy Birthday, Stacy. My favorite part is having all of my family together. As we continue to blossom, it gets harder and harder to corral them all. But, on Mom/Grandma's birthday, they all make a special effort....and I'm worth it!! lol

    Have fun at your party!

  30. How sweet from you to give presents on your birthday. I hope you got some nice ones yourself. i love when friends and relatives get together on my birthday. The gifts aren't the important part, but to be together.

  31. My fav part of my birthday was waking up and finding a birthday card sitting on my computer from my daughter. Now, that's all I wish that I could get. I miss that.

  34. Morning everyone! Went to my sister's house for dinner last night and then up early for work this morning so I hadn't had a chance to get back---thank you all for the well wishes!

    CJ--I'm so glad you're still having them too!

  35. Am I too late?

    As an author of erotic romance, I guess my favorite part of birthdays is the spanking...

    LOL, just kidding. My favorite part is getting pampered by my dh. He makes me breakfast, takes me out to dinner, gives me a backrub...basically he just does whatever I want. It's heaven!
