I don’t usually post on the weekend, since it seems like internet closes, but I’m making an exception today! It’s Jana’s birthday this weekend too (over at Boobies, Babies, & A Blog), so this week’s Saturday Six is all about Birthdays! Without further ado, here is my very first Saturday 6:
1. Do you still celebrate your birthday?
Of course I do! Who doesn’t celebrate their birthday? However, since I have to share the day with Alivia now, the spotlight is mostly on her. I have to admit though, Shawn does his best to make it special for me too.
2. What’s your favorite kind of cake?
Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate!
3. Craziest thing you’ve ever done on your birthday?
At first I couldn’t think of anything, but then I was like, duh. Seven years ago (tomorrow) I had a baby on my birthday! That’s pretty crazy, considering there are 364 other days in the year that she could have been born!
This is the day she came home from the hospital. I can’t post a picture of myself, because it would break your computer screen…I had preeclampsia and apparently the 10 pounds I gained in the last week of my pregnancy all went to my face! Oh, and yes, the time stamp on the picture is wrong. It should say 2003, not 2004. I blame my husband.
4. What’s your sign?
5. Best present you’ve ever gotten on your special day?
As a good mother, I should probably say my daughter, right? Besides that…I don’t know if this is the “best” present, but one of my favorite presents is the Movado watch Shawn got me for my 29th birthday. It was a total surprise, and he actually picked it out by himself!
6. Worst gift?
This is easy. The first year Shawn and I were dating he gave me a set of 4 Winnie the Pooh coffee mugs for my birthday. At that time I didn’t even drink coffee, so let’s just say I was not at all impressed. In his defense he did also get me a Pottery Barn mantle clock that I wanted, but it was a little difficult to get past the coffee mugs.
I hope you’re all having good weekend! Oh, and good news! I survived the slumber party!
