Fill in the Blank Friday {13}

First off, I have been having some SERIOUS issues with my posts being published but NOT showing up on the Reading List or in Google Reader for hours. So, in case you’re not seeing anything from me regularly, feel free to just click on my link and see if I’ve posted anything new, because chances are, I have. Hopefully this is only temporary!

Now, back to the fun things. Happy Friday! I’m doing my first EVER guest post today over on Mrs... T, Naturally! I’d love it if you headed on over to keep me some company and check out her awesome blog! :)

And, as always, I’m linking up with The Little Things We Do for Fill in the Blank Friday!

1.  My most favorite birthday was     my Barbie-themed birthday party! I don’t think it was on my actual birthday but, let me tell you, it was the place to be that Winter! Well, unless you were a guy. Every girl brought their favorite Barbie with them and everywhere you looked it was something Barbie-related. There was even a Barbie ON the cake. When I was about 4 years old I got the pink Barbie Corvette hot wheels and so my parents used the Corvette to hold all the presents as people walked in. Genius!

2.  My worst birthday was     in 1996. It was a big deal guys, because I was turning double digits. DOUBLE DIGITS! In case you don’t really remember, the Blizzard of ‘96 hit the Mid-Atlantic region one January day and we received the worst of it the night before my birthday. That part was pretty cool. However, my mom had been in Houston and ALL the airports were closed. My mom was unable to make it back for my birthday so I spent the whole first half of the day crying and crying. Two of my friends made me some big plate of goodies to try and cheer me up and we eventually just went out and played in the snow. It was still devastating to this little ten year old at the time, ha.

3.  My favorite birthday memory is      from my 21st birthday. I spent the first half of the day at my parents’ house where I opened amazing gifts and talked about how turning 21 is a big deal. Then, I headed back down to college where my boyfriend at the time had set up clues all around his house leading me from present to present. Then, we headed over to my house where my two roommates had decorated the house all in turquoise (my favorite color!) including a turquoise cake and a room FILLED with turquoise balloons! We went out for dinner and drinks that night. Most people were still out of town on Winter Break but just having a few of my favorite people with me was all I could ask for :)


4.  The best birthday present I've ever received was     being in San Diego with my family on my birthday. Late night In N Out as the clock struck midnight and then spending the day up in Laguna Beach followed by a night of fun at Joe’s Crab Shack. Perfection!

5.  The  best birthday present I've ever given was     a surprise dinner cruise around DC.

6.  Birthdays are     so special! I think sometimes I get more excited for people’s birthdays than they do haha. It really is that person’s special day so even if they are one of those non-birthday-ers who says it’s just any other day, I want to do whatever I can to make them feel special and important because that’s what they are to me!

7.  My favorite age so far has been     a tie between 21 and 22. I feel like I was truly living life to the fullest in those years. I was working hard, having fun, and had a great group of people around me whether I was at school, at home, or traveling the country for work. It was surreal and I’d love to go back to those years :) Those were the years when I felt most alive.

Oh, birthdays are so much fun! These blanks made me happy! What has your favorite age been so far?

Well, that’s it for now. Check back soon because I’m lucky enough to be doing some MORE guest posting these next few days for some lovely ladies and would love for you to go check them out as well! Have a safe and wonderful weekend. Soak up that Summer sun! :)
