Birthday Month

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

So January is my second favorite month (December is my first) because it is my birthday month.
Really I think October is very close because of The Godfather's and Addison's birthday and Halloween but it's January right now so it's my favorite this month.  Ask me again in October.  So I usually make JT freak out about if he should throw me a party and where should it be and who he should invite.  He also is confused about what to get me.  I am not high maintenance I swear.  But his year I'm not going to fret the little stuff.  I just want a nice relaxing birthday.  I usually want to celebrate the whole month but I am so laid back this year.  I can tell Addison is so confused.  He started a countdown on his bulletin board.  Every morning he wakes up and says how many day until my birthday and I just say, "Oh cool".

Have I gotten too old for birthdays?  I don't think so but I do think I have gotten to old for a big display about it.  I have planned to take a girls weekend to Washington DC the weekend before my birthday and then just spend time with family on my birthday.  But I'm looking back at past birthdays and realized they have gotten tame.  We used to do a big dinner at some fancy restaurant, that was THE restaurant at the time and then go to a club.  So Addison was not there and it was adults only.  But know I'm noticing the last 2 years have been more family orientated.  Two years ago we all went to Korean Barbq.  Everyone was there; my family, Wally's family (my second family), friends.  There were about were 7 kids there so it was definitely all about family.





















Last year, we all went ice skating at Piedmont Park and then went to Flip Burger for dinner.  You can check out my blog post about it here.  We had a a blast!









My 2008 birthday party was a great dinner at a great restaurant with friends and then out to the club.  I remember I got the flu so we had to postpone it until I got better.  But not so much about family, Addison wasn't there.  But it was the restaurant Uncle Malik worked out so he go to be our server and we got the VIP treatment.













I just remembered  I wore a tiara at my 2006 birthday party.  Yes, I used to be that girl.  Hey, I'm still a princess but I don't need to wear a crown to remind everyone.   :)



So I will let you all know how this birthday celebration turns out.  I think it might be a mixture of both.  :)


Oh, I just realized how wonderful it is to have a blog.  I have been blogging for almost a year now.  It's interesting to go back and see what I wrote about in the beginning and what I write about now.  I don't think anything has really changed.  The pictures have gotten better but I still talk about food and paper.  It's like having a diary without all the personal, mommy daddy issues, and  voices in my head stuff.  Actually in my personal diary I talk about food and paper so there's really no difference.  Wait...I actually looked at it.  It's all lot about architecture and decorating.  Weird!!!  I guess I have dream house on the brain when I write.

Well, talk to everyone soon.
