when we lived in oregon, we'd celebrate birthdays for a week straight. here . . . it's been different. a struggle.
last year, the man-friend took me away for a camping trip and a brewery tour. it was awesome and SO COOL. a nice family trip (we took the pup too). but it's also nice to be celebrated by your friends. i'm not trying to be miss birthday diva . . . but i'm having a tough time.
maybe i just need some cool (cheap) ideas for my birthday party that will be accessable and fun for all?
i was thinking a circus theme
or maybe a white trash theme?
or just dancing and drinks (but some of my friends have kids and i wanted something they could come to, too) . . .
a picnick? what if the weather sucks?
i just got home from a birthday party for my friend who just turned 30. her husband sent her to beach and to get a pedicure and she came home and the house had been cleaned, sushi and pizza had been made, drinks were ready, an ipod playlist made and friends invited. cirque du soleil was on the tv screen in the background.
THEN PONIES came!!! and people took pony rides! and THEN a barber shop quartet came and sang to the birthday girl!!!
