My 5th Birthday Party
When I was little, my parents always made a big deal about my birthday. I had parties where I invited all the kids in my class, we played classic party games, and I had a fancy homemade birthday cake.
My daughter was born a few days after my birthday, so for a long time her birthday overshadowed mine–and I didn’t mind. We were still celebrating, and there was still cake!

Now that my daughter is on her own, I have my birthday to myself again, but I need some ideas of how to celebrate.
The year before that, I made up my own birthday “triathlon” and celebrated by running, cycling, and ice skating–and then getting cupcakes.
Today I plan to start my day with a run, have lunch with friends, and have dinner at home with my family. It’s not much of a birthday hullabaloo, but I’m sure there will be cake. 🙂
I’ll also have to fit a Starbucks run into my schedule.
Did birthday rewards always expire in a day
or is that part of the new rewards program?
Today’s Wednesday Word is hullabaloo!
How do you celebrate your birthday?
P.S. Please do me a birthday favor and read one of the featured posts below about the birthday I skipped.
