We’re of the mindset that birthdays are to be celebrated so we celebrate them to the fullest. My birthday was the last day of May and Hannah and I turned it into a week of fun together and also shared with family and friends. Yay! I was completely spoiled and blessed by everyone who wanted to celebrate!
Our first party was an annual birthday party with Auntie Deb whose birthday is the week before mine. Unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of Deb but did capture one of Hannah enjoying the delicious peanut butter and chocolate ice cream cake she made. Yummo!
The last Tuesday of each month Polar Bear and I enjoy a marathon Skype conversation. Our calls normally end up lasting somewhere between 4 and 5 hours and go into the wee hours of the morning! We met one another a few times but it’s been a while since we’ve been together in person so now we visit via Skype. It’s such fun and I treasure our friendship! Since her birthday was the week before mine we enjoyed a cyber party, each having bought ourselves a celebratory cupcake. Fun! Miss you Polar Bear!!
The next night we cashed in a free birthday dinner coupon received from Boston Pizza and celebrated together.
The day of my birthday was a Thursday so it was a piano teaching night for me. My parents watched Hannah a little later than normal and this allowed me to go see, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’ with a friend and then out for peanut butter ‘n chocolate ice cream. Mmmm! The movie was GREAT and we laughed ourselves silly. Highly recommended it! Thank you friend!!
Friday night Hannah and I cashed in another coupon I was sent in the mail and we went to The Marble Slab for celebratory ice cream. Heh….birthday celebrations just seem to be tied in with yummy treats!
Our final celebration was with Mom and Dad. We went to a local Chinese buffet that we all enjoy and had a wonderful time together. It was a great way to finish up a week of birthday celebrations!
To all who sent birthday wishes and celebrated with me. Thank you!! Hannah now reminds me that her birthday is next!
