my ultimate birthday

So my husband wanted to know what I wanted to do to celebrate my BIG birthday this week (i had warned him it better be good- cause it was a big one). Sadly, I am too practical and cheap and usually settle for a $6 tex mex and make myself a cake. So last night i was dreaming of my ultimate birthday and all it would entail. As you can see from my list it would be quite the extravaganza...

food- on demand
sonic fresh limeades, and onion rings
wrights dairy- napoleons and chocolate eclairs and radio bars
cheng-du- beef with pea pods and spicy orange chicken
moes- homewrecker burrito with the everything
dinner at The Blue Point
a great room service breakfast

potential locations-
hotel (anywhere where someone else cleans up)
hawaii -okay i guess i'll settle for any tropical location
morocco - my favorite foreign destination

potential activities-
a great art museum
a few hours of uninterrupted painting
sitting in the sun and reading a book cover to cover
sitting in a hot tub
a shopping spree
party with favorite family and friends

necessary luxuries-
sleeping in
watching a movie in bed
a new outfit I look fabulous in
a full uninterrupted night's sleep
no whining/crying

sounds good huh??

I think I will be settling for a new dining room rug made from FLOR carpet tiles, dinner at a local spot, and probably a cake decorated with plastic toys by my 5 year old

so go on, dream your ultimate birthday...wishes are what birthdays are about

Sounds WONDERFUL!!! I hope you get everything you wish for and that your house doesn't burn down from the flames off your b-day cake.

I always tell my dh that I want to come home to a clean house that I didn't clean, a dinner I didn't make, finished laundry I didn't do, and bathed and sleeping kids that I didn't bathe or put to bed.

Happy Birthday to you!

Funny how as moms a cake covering in icing and plastic toys is the most beautiful cake in the world when our own kid makes it, huh?

For my big 3-0 next year? I want to go to a B&B so I can be served breakfast in bed and not have to clean it up, cook it, do the dishes or make the beds!

Maybe if I start planting the ideas now it'll happen in 8 months!

I hope you get your dining room rug. You've only wanted it for, like, 2 or 3 years! You're much better at delaying gratification than I am.

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you at least get a few of your birthday wishes. My birthdays are never what I anticipate, so I am trying not to have any wants for the day. A couple of years ago I thought my husband would take me out to dinner, or at least MAKE me dinner for my birthday. Well at around 6:00p.m. I decided I better make something if I wanted to eat anything, so we ended up having mac n' cheese. It is just better for me not to expect anything so I am not disappointed!
