It's Coming!

My birthday is coming!  It's on Wednesday.

I would calculate how old I am but I'm not that good with big numbers... 

Seriously, I'm old.  I have t-shirts older than some of you.  :)

Some people celebrate birthdays; some people don't.  I'm in the first group.  A birthday is a nice occasion to enjoy yourself.

Last week, I was surprised to receive a brightly-decorated package from Poppy  The package announces on the outside that it's a birthday gift and says not to open it until Wednesday.  I can't wait!  That was sooo sweet of Poppy.  Visit her blog and see what a lovely woman she is.

Do you like to celebrate your birthday?

BTW, I'm a Scorpio and I fit the profile for that sign completely.


  1. Hi! Well, I like to celebrate my birthday but, on this day, bad thigs happens, almost always...
    I like to get ages because I think we get experience of life.

    Kisses honey!!!

  2. I like to celebrate my birthday a little bit, too. My birthday is November 9th and I'll be celebrating this weekend most likely.

    Like you, I fit the description of a Scorpio exactly.

  3. Happy early Birthday !! I love using my birthday as an excuse to spend more money lol.

  4. yay happy early bday! birthdays are the best! I hope you enjoy yours xx

  5. Aw, that's sweet. Wahey, glad you're not the type of person to keep that to yourself - Happy Birthday for Wednesday, lovely!

    I definitely definitely celebrate my Birthday, oh yes. Time off work at that point and everything! Bring on March... x

  6. I love birthdays so much I have turned March into birthmonth - I've structured it so every day in March is my birthday. I get presents on the main day, and for the rest of the month I make a point of enjoying something great every day because, after all, it is around my birthday. I like other people's birthday just as much. They're a big deal! I'm all up for cake and pressies - I think everyone should have a bit fuss and sugar on their birthday. Happy Birthday for Wednesday. I have a soft spot for Scorpios - every Scorp I've met I've liked and admired.

  7. *Blushes* Well I'm glad you liked the surprise! =]
    I fit the profile of a Saggitarius absolutely perfectly:

    * Fun
    * Optimist
    * Good-natured
    * Sociable
    * Spiritual
    * Impatient
    * Fears responsibility
    * Self-indulgence
    * Fanaticism
    * Peter Pan syndrome
    * Tendency to gamble

    Well, almost perfectly! I don't have peter pan syndrome, nor do I gamble!

  8. I'm with Baxter: we should have a birthday SEASON. I enjoy my birthdays for at least a week.

    Yes, Poppy, you are those qualities. Fun and good-natured, certainly.

    Emma, I am considering your idea of taking the day off work because, in the past when I haven't, something would happen at work to annoy me and then that ruined my whole day. If I don't go in, then I can't get aggravated!

    Emma Kitty, I hadn't thought about using the day as an excuse to spend money but there is a cute dress I've had my eye on... Thanks for the encouragement!

  9. Happy early birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day!

  10. lol ooh I love Poppy. I can't wait to see what it is!!

  11. I have to say, I have the worst luck when it comes to birthdays. I never seem to have a good one, ever. I don't know why, maybe I put too much pressure on it? I'm probably not going to celebrate it anymore, haha.

    Congrats on being one-year-older!

  12. Every birthday is a reason to celebrate - Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate!

  13. Happy birthday!! (today is Wednesday here, so I can say happy birthday :P )

    Thats super cute of poppy!!

    Hope you have a lovely day :)

  14. Thank you, Stel. Sweet of you to remember. I cherish you!
