It’s that time of year again, Birthday time. This time of year I get anxious, what will go wrong this year? Will I be sick, will there be a catastrophe, will there be a death, or will it be a blissfully quiet and uneventful birthday. Yes it says a lot about my previous birthdays but there it is. The 5 days before, the day of, and 5 days after my big day I often wish I could hid under a rock and not come out.

This year my loving and wonderful hubby who hates to see me suffer though this thing called a birthday has decided that he wants me to have great birthday this year. He wants me to actually celebrate it. I was terrified. I’m like do you mean celebrate the day, the week, or the whole month because I don’t think I can handle the much celebrating you know. And he’s all like at least the weekend, we can keep it small, but you’re celebrating. So after some debate I settled on the fact that apparently I was celebrating my birthday this year.

Of course when hubby says at least the weekend I really should have known better. We had decided to go on a mini vacation with some friends and their kids to Orlando to go to Aquatica and my friends tell us they want to take us to Kobe a Japanese Steakhouse that my friends love up there. To my surprise what do I get, yep, my friends had set me up. Their daughter’s birthday is the day before mine so we both had Happy Birthday sung to us Kobe style. I got to wear a hat and everything. My husband swears that he did not know until we walked in and our friend told him, but looks like he’s getting his way. Not only did we have a blast at Aquatica, because there are nine of us we had the hibachi table ourselves and we had a great time. I can honestly say I thought to myself if this is how it going to go, I may be in for a great birthday after all.

Of course it’s now birthday week so my nerves are a wreck. Still I’m optimistic. I’m hosting a CAH party on Friday to kick of the weekend. It will be full of wonderful witches with a wicked sense of humor, so I know it will be great. Saturday plans are currently up in the air since I have the school meet and greet for my baby girl’s school, but I’m hoping to do something with my family after. Maybe something out of the ordinary (will see). Sunday has Yoga by the Bay which I’m hoping to get to, some unplanned time in the middle, and then dinner with the same friends from Orlando (this time without the kiddies) at the Melting Pot, yummy!!! Monday on the big day, hubby and I both took the day off. So after dispersing the kids to school we are planning a day enjoy each other’s company. No plans are solidified and I’m good with that. To end the day with cake once everyone gets home.

There are no looming storms brewing in the Atlantic, I am doing extra dosing myself with Vitamin C starting today, and all home and family issues are currently and pleasantly on the shelf. It’s not an all-out bash or anything, but considering it’s a good start.

So I have succeeded in having two decent birthdays’ in a row. Last year I went the “I'm not really celebrating it” route and it worked. Hubby and I got away for the weekend and kept it simple, so that went very well. This year I tried not to worry about it too much, I took the day off from work and expected to go to two different doctor’s appointments and not do much else. My mom had said she would cook me a birthday dinner with one of my favorite meals so I had that to look forward to.

Instead, my birthday began the day before at work when I was given a small party at work. This is fairly normal for everyone's but usually it small, rushed, and slightly harassing. This year my friend and my boss got together and behind my back and invited my extended departments. Everyone showed up on time and even though I knew they were doing it, I got the best surprise when I saw my cake. My friend and called the bakery and told then I loved, purple and fairies. The lady at the bakery told her she had the perfect cake. I got a Winx Club birthday cake. It was perfect. I don't think they could have picked a better cake. I get to enjoy a cake with fairies and I get to give my daughter the toys from the cake. I had a great time and didn't feel the need to rush back to work, plus when I did try, my boss told me to take it easy, that I was off the next day anyway and it was the end of the day. Awesome.

The next day my three day birthday weekend began with one of my appointments already cancelled and the other one was cancelled by 9 AM. My mom who is currently home gave me a new hair-doo and we dyed my hair. Then we went to lunch at Chipotle’s. She had never been there and ended up loving it. We ran around a little and visited my grandmother then we came back home to hang out for a little until it was time to pick up the kiddy's from school. We picked up my little ones then went to pick up my nephew from daycare, did a quick stop for shoes, since little man's feet grew overnight and he had no shoes that fit. He went to daycare in sandals :). When we got home, both kids cooperated with homework and my mom started on dinner. She made one of my favorites that my grandmother (her mother) used to make, what my grandma called Pollo al la Chinfina. We recently looked up the recipe and they are not the same, but she used to make a fabulous dish. My mom had not been so successful in making my grandmother's recipe, that night she hit it out of the park. It was awesome. Delicious, mouth watering and best of all everyone loved it which meant no family dinner drama.

Saturday started a little on the harassed side, trying to get the kids, my parents, my brother and nephew out the door as they were all heading to Hollywood Beach to visit family and go to the beach. But by 10:30 AM I was alone!!!!! The best birthday gift ever. My kids gone, my hubby at work, the house to myself and nothing to do. I hung out in bed like a slug watching TV until 3 PM when hubby got home. Then it was shower, leftovers from last night’s delicious diner and hot kinky and not so quite sex. This was the second best present of the day, only really possible because of the first, lol. Then it the horde arrived home and everyone was exhausted, so it was a calm, casual, and restful night to.

Sunday the mundane arrived as we had laundry to do and homework to finish, but even then it was a pretty casual day. That night I went with my hubby and some friends to Rok Burger and had a wonderful time. May and I had some drinks, I tried Funky Buddha’s Blueberry Beer, and I had a Dirty Martini that had olives stuffed with blue cheese and were wrapped in bacon. She had the Lychee Martini and Pomegranate Martini. We then ordered the Meatloaf that was spectacular. We talked and laughed and relaxed. It was the perfect way to end my birthday weekend.

It was so nice not to have anything go wrong for my birthday and because I share my birthday month with a very cool and awesome witchy friend I even got to hand out with my witchy friends the weekend before playing CAH & drinking some more . Hopefully this is a starting trend. Would love to actually look forward birthday.
