blow out your candles


I had the blessing of celebrating my birthday this last weekend and I received some very nice gifts from Don and the rest of my family (thanks to all of you in California, too).

So my question today is:

If your birthday was coming up, what would you ask for from your husband or family?

A really good question that I am being asked all the time now. My birthday is about 6 weeks away and my husband has already started to ask what I want. I am thinking about asking for a weekend/night away with him. He can arrange for the kids to be watched.

Happy belated birthday to you!

Well, since my birthday is coming up (this weekend), I did ask for a book. The one that is in the Fireproof movie. That's about it. I'm simple. The best gift is gathering with friends and family and having a good time together.

Mine's not til spring. If money is still really tight then, I'll just ask for something like a picnic with all of us at the park, or a movie night at home, maybe queen for the day so everyone can do what I would normally do and I can just relax.

Geez, maybe I'll just ask for that anyhow, no matter what the money situtation is! LOL

Birthday is in May....hmmmm I would ask for a trip w/o the kids for a couple of nights!!!

Looks like there are quite a few of us with birthdays coming up soon.

Actually, mine is what I would ask my friends and family NOT to do. I turn 50 this year. I DO NOT want a big fan fare made about it. So...I guess I would ask of my friends and family to let me celebrate it quietly and unnoticed by everyone but a few select people.

if we had the money I'd ask for a new camera...but we don't or I'd already have it.

I'm thrilled to get time alone together.

So, what did you ask for? And did you get it?

A new washer/dryer and an elliptical machine.

I want to have my blog printed out at one of those printing services and bound in a cool cover!

I think I'd ask for a week away with my girlfriends. Not that I wouldn't want to spend time with my wonderful husband...but a week with just the girls would be excellent!!
