Birthday Week Begins

February 1, 2010

Much to my husband’s chagrin, I insist on celebrating my birthday for an entire week every year. The first couple of times he thought it was cute, but when I reminded him of it this year he said, “You’re still doing that??” Yes, yes I am. And it started yesterday. The boy’s not stupid though; he presented me with these first thing this morning:


Pretty flowers make me happy.

So the basics of birthday week are that I get to indulge in whatever I want all week long without feeling guilty, and I get to choose whatever activities I want for the week and David must comply. Genius, right? I know I’ll probably gain about ten pounds, but it’s so worth it. My actual birthday is on Friday, and there will be a wild party at my parents’ house. A wild party that will end by 9 p.m. and involves only my family and zero alcohol, but wild nonetheless.

Happy Monday, and happy birthday week to me. :)

    I love birthday weeks! We did that growing up and now it is something we do in our house. Adam has grown to love it and I’m sure the kids will as well.

    When our birthdays fall during the week my husband and I have a “birthday Saturday” (because clearly you need at least an entire day for fun and adventure on your birthday) but a birthday week? How have I never thought of that before? Hope you have a great one :)

    LONG LIVE BIRTHDAY WEEK!! (Make sure you watch all the GG birthday episodes. Also, get Mr. Forbes to scoop you a big bowl of Blue Bell ice cream. Those are two of my favorites on birthday week, whenever they are possible).

    Also, “much to my husband’s chagrin”?!?! David, David, David. I shake my head at thee.

    From Sara:

    Aw birthday weeks! That sounds like fun! I don’t think I’ve ever done that before really. It’s kind of difficult to do that with my man, considering his birthday is only five days before mine. So instead, we just focus on him on his day, me on mine, and do a birthday weekend together (or weekdays).

    Have an amazing birthday week :)
