Randall always pokes fun at me because when MY birthday rolls around, I “celebrate” for the whole week. Well, why wouldn't I?
I fire back with, “I celebrate it..yes, but that doesn't me YOU have to celebrate it! And I encourage YOU to celebrate YOUR birthday for a whole week, too!”
I celebrate my birthday by doing things that make me happy – all week long. I may watch a movie during the day, treat myself to Starbucks, go out to lunch once or twice (or more)…stuff like that.
Randall's birthday was on Saturday. He left work early on Friday and we all went to the State Fair (which he LOVES). Yesterday, he spent time with his mom, Anna baked him a cake and we gave him presents….then this morning, I told him Happy Birthday to continue the celebration.
Right now, he's cleaning out the garage. Doesn't sound like a very “birthday” thing to do, but he's stoked about having a cleaned up garage! lol!
Part of his present was this wrapped candy bar (coconut, his favorite). I just wrapped a bit of Designer Paper around the candy bar, added a band of Night of Navy embossed cardstock around it, tied some burlap (because it's so IN right now!) and added a tag from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Framelits.
Sooooo….do YOU celebrate YOUR birthday for one day or more? Leave me a comment and let me know!
