    My most memorable birthday would have to be when I was a kid... maybe 8 years old. My Dad took me to his place of work (he was in the air force at the time). I remember the doll I had just been given as a present - it was a Yes/No Doll... with strategically placed buttons, you could make her nod or shake her head. Loved that doll, but love going with my Dad to his work way more!!! Whenever officers saluted as we walked by, I would salute back too!

    My birthday is November 5. :o)

    Thanks again, Jeanie!! <3

  14. Happy birthday!! My birthday is June 6, and my most memorable birthday was actually my 1st grade birthday. Maybe I'm idealizing it in my head, but my Dad showed up to pick me up from school, with a milkshake in the car for me, and we both went out to lunch. He'd never picked me up or gone out with just me, and it was amazing. I'm still a Daddy's girl :)

  15. Happy Birthday!!

    My most memorable birthday is either when I turned 7 or 8. It was the first party that I had that wasnt shared with my baby sister, whose birthday is only 4 days after mines. It was a skating party, and my WHOLE family showed up. I had a really cool cake and they shouted my name out over the intercom. I just felt really special that day... My birthday is May 4th!

    Most Memorable Birthday – Well this B’day was the most memorable for the wrong reason. During one of my b’day no one remembered it. Not a friend called me or wished me. Even worse was, one of my best friend’s sister’s b’day is also on the same day but she failed to call me. It was the saddest b’day!!!!
    Birth date – 17th Feb

    My birthday is April 3rd- and my favourite birthday memory is definitely my 21st, as I had a massive Pimps and Ho's themed party, and spent weeks planning my amazing outfit.....but my corset broke at about 9pm! So I had to wear a HUGE man's t-shirt from the barman to save my dignity (which was totally stinking) but I had such a laugh with all my friends and whenever I look at pictures of that night and my ridiculous ensemble it makes me smile!



    GFC; TrailerHood CHic

    My most memorable is a toss up between my 21st and 30th. I was drunk and blacked out for most of both....but for my 21st, my mom had to have my bouncer friend pick me up out of the bathroom and carry me out to the car. The bouncers never let me live that down. LoL My birthday is November 15th!

  66. uhh I suppose my GFC name is Rose lol My birthday is November 11th. My moms birthday is the day after I guess I was a present? :) Anywho, my most memorable birthday must have been when I turned 8. My mom bought tshirts, puffy paints, make up (oh lord all the make up) and allowed me to invite friends over. It was the bestest birthday ever! Making shirts..playing dress up..and the next morning, she was making US pancakes. She's a trooper, and a fantastic mom!

    Love ya Jeanie, I really do hope you have a lovely day! <3

  67. Happy birthday!

    Since I am old, my most memorable birthday is the most recent, 'cause that's all I can remember ;-) Last birthday (49yo, ugh) I showed up to work and there were balloons everywhere and the stage was decorated (I teach dance aerobics). And when it was time for class to start, my students spontaneously broke into a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday"

    Thank you for all you do with your blog. Reading it is one of the highlights of my day!

  77. My GFC is Erika

    Last year was one of my most memorable, yes it was only last year so of course I remember it, but it was special because now that I have lived out of my home town for 5+ yrs, usually I wind up having to travel to NY to see friends and family around my birthday, but last year my boyfriend threw me a party and 3 of my best friends drove up here as a surprise to be there for the party, I had no idea they were coming cause they had RSVPd "No" cause they wanted me to think they weren't :)

    My Birthday is September 30 :D


  78. My GFC name is Nails by ScarsLikeLace (Amber Hess on Facebook).

    My most memorable birthday, which is on October 11th, was when I turned 21, but not for the reason everyone would think. It was my first birthday being married. I DIDN'T get drunk, only had 1 drink, but it was fun because all of my closest friends showed up.

    My memorable birthday was 2 years ago when my fiancé made me a surprise birthday party, where were all of our friends, I had a really good time. XoXo

    My most memorable birthday was waaaaaay back when I was four. I lived out in the middle of nowhere, so my friends were all people who lived close. My best friend was the boy who lived a couple of miles away and we spent EVERY DAY together. He wasn't able to make it to my party, so he told his mom he wanted to go shopping for me and he picked out, all by himself, a little white teddy bear that had a red sweater that said "I <3 You" on it. It was SO sweet. I had that bear until it got ruined in a flood. :(
    My birthday is on Oct. 7

    most memorable bday for me was when my husband made a giant plant globe out of newspaper and filled it full of presents and hung it from the celling fan so when i came in i pretty much was floored at this giant plant birthday thing full of goodies just for me. 9/17 .

    nice giveaway! very exciting since this is one i don't have : )

    Okay, haha I wrote you a long book about my favorite birthday and figured I'd better shorten it up, might drive you crazy!
    I had a really good friend who flew me up to Boston for the weekend when I turned 29. It was SO much fun, and she even took me for a day to visit Salem, which I adored. It was a blast!
    I hope you're having a wonderful day. :) Thanks for the lovely giveaway!

    GFC: donnamccrudden

    My birthday is 6/11/76. :) I turned 35 this year and my husband made sure that I got everything I wanted this year. I didn't ask for much, just a trip to my salon and nail polish! He went to my stylist and set up an appointment for me and got an Ulta gift card. It made turning 35 a little less of a punch in the gut. :)

  86. GFC: Kari

    My most memorable birthday was every single one I got to spend with my father. He had a tradition as we got older to get us "mistake" cakes for our birthdays. Like, instead of saying "Happy Birthday, Kari" it would say "Bon Voyage, Carmelita". He would joke that the store messed it up so he got it for a discount and we would laugh and laugh. I miss my daddy, every day, but this memory always makes me smile. My birthday is May 10th.

    Happy birthday, sweetheart!

    My most memorable birthday- when I was about 14 my mother asked my best friend and her mom if they'd like to go to Chicago with us so we could shop in the "big city" LOL. We stayed at a "posh" hotel, had room service, and then we walked around until our feet felt like they were going to fall off. Funny though, but I can't remember if i bought a thing! :)

    *My favorite birthday memory was this year, 2011. It was my 20th birthday and my mom got me a barbie cake! One of those big ones where the barbie is in the middle. It was so pretty and pink, brought me back to my childhood for a while! She didn't think we would be able to finish all the cake, but luckily enough, more of family and friends showed up than expected!

  91. GFC- Holly

    When I was 5 or 6 (forget which), I got a special birthday cake from my Aunt Suzie. It was a My Little Pony cake and it came complete with a pony on it. This was one of the old school velvet ponies. She was light green with a red mane and tail and her name was Skippity-Do. I loved that cake and still have a pic of me with it! Happy birthday Jeanie, I hope those puppies are treating you well!
    My birthday is January 25th!

  92. GFC ; Toyomi .
    Septermber17th ; My most memorable birthday moment was this year actually. I went out to eat with all my closest friend as 17 years old . IT was different because we all sort of felt like adults. I got the presents and just got to spend time with the people I love .

  93. Happy b'day! Let's see - this is your 18th b'day again right???? Or would you prefer to be 24 forever? Your choice because it's YOUR DAY.

    My b'day is Oct 31st - yeah - Halloween!

    My most memorable b'day was when I turned 22. I had no invites to go out and was just going to play the marter well and pass out candy to kids for Halloween. I had some kids come. Then a knock and it was a guy I had this major secrete crush on. He brought something to drink or some food. About 15 mins later 2 more folks knocked and dropped by with some food/beverage as well. It was a good 1.75 hrs before there were maybe 15 really good friends there and my neighbor brought a Huge cake enough to feed 40 that he (the gourmet chef) made. Then it dawned on me. My house mate had spread the word and had friends come over at staggered arrival times. I had no idea it was a surprise party for me for quite some time! My house being only a block up from the beach in So. CA then, was often an impromptu gathering place. I had the best music collection, a real house with real furniture (vs the floor only like most my age). Everyone was ready to play along until I 'got it' that it was a surprise party at my own house for me!!! It was a brilliant night and an equally brilliant idea of how to stage a party and not have me realize it was anything out of the normal until that 'normal' # gathering was exceeding coincidence of about 6 or 7 folks showing up at my house any other night.

    Happy, happy birthday! Hope you've been enjoying my day. One of my most memorable birthdays was a few years ago when hubby surprised me with a party where he invited all of our friends and I got a kindle. One of the best gifts ever.

  96. Yay! Happy Birthday! I just turned 18 -13 days ago! September birthdays rock! I guess my favorite birthday was when I had all my friends at my house and we all played in the fields. The other girls were sooo fascinated cause we live on a farm and they were from the city. I felt bad though cause one girl had her new shoes on and my parents got in trouble with her mom.
    hope its a good one! :)
