I had planned on doing a Mani Monday post today but since I’ve been sick I wasn’t really motivated to paint my nails. However, as today is my birthday I thought I’d do the birthday tag instead!
1.) When is your birthday?
Today (November 6th)
2.) How old are you turning? (Or if your birthday recently passed, how old did you turn?)
I turn 28 today!
3.) What was you’re favourite present that you’ve ever received?
To be honest – nothing really sticks out in my mind. I’m sure I’ve received lots of great presents over the years though. Nothing really beats a nice night out for dinner with my husband though 😊
4.) Are you/did you have a party this year? if so what are you doing?
I was supposed to have a party this past Saturday but I had to postpone because I’m currently sick. But in a couple of weeks it is back on! I’m just having a small get together at my house and we are all going to wear onesies 😂 Did I say I was turning 12 or 28?
5.) How do you usually celebrate your birthday?
I usually go for dinner with my husband, have some kind of family dinner around my birthday (or later because my sister’s birthday is a few weeks after mine so sometimes we combine it) and I usually have a get together with friends.
6.) What was the most memorable birthday that you had?
I spent my 25th birthday on my honeymoon in Saint Lucia, that was pretty special and memorable!
7.) If you had an unlimited amount of money what would you do for your birthday?
Take all of my friends on a weeklong getaway!
8.) What’s your birthday wish list?
A few items from Sephora, comfortable boots for my upcoming trip to Paris and clothes.
9.) If u only had one birthday left, what would u do for your birthday?
Go somewhere exotic!
10.) Show a picture from your birthday, preferably an embarrassing one
Not really embarrassing but here’s a photo from my tropical themed birthday party in 2012!
11.) Do you have any birthday traditions?
Usually just my birthday dinners. Oh, and spending the day saying “after all, it’s my birthday” every time I ask someone (generally my husband) to do something, haha. I can thank my dad for that gem.
12.) What’s your favourite part about your birthday?
Spending time with my friends and family!
13.) Whats one thing that changed a lot since your last birthday?
I’ve spent a lot of the past year soul searching and trying to become a stronger person, so I think I’ve changed a lot myself in that way.
14.) Have you ever been thrown a surprise party or have you ever thrown one for someone?
I threw a surprise graduation party for my husband when he finished university. I’ve also hosted a surprise party for a friend as well. Both were huge successes!
I’m definitely looking forward to a fun and exciting year ahead. I think 28 will be a great year!
