but it's MY day!

My birthday is on Valentines day. Obviously, this means my boyfriend (and every boyfriend I've ever had) DREADS February. But this year, my birthday lands smack dab in the middle of Mardi Gras, too (I live in New Orleans). In college this was fun and party-time-to-the-max. This year it means that I don't even get my own "here's a card and cake that costs less than $10 total per-office-rules" party. I have to share the Mardi Gras potluck (ew) with the whole office. And they think I should be excited, like they're throwing a Mardi Gras party just for me! Suck.

I can relate but in a different sort of way..my daughter's birthday is the day before mine..now, as an adult, we tend to overlook our days. but it is still nice to get our own cards, our own cake and not to share. I hope your day is fun, and how YOU want it to be...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, this SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14...the day YOU were born!!

yeah, my BD usually falls on Columbus Day so I don't get an office potluck or a theme party or even MAIL - so no cards or good stuff on my doorstep. Whatev~ just make your BD a whole week long like I do and then you can relish it as much as you want.

Yeah. I understand. My birthday was yesterday, which makes my birthday exactly 5 days before Valentine's day. I think my husband would gladly celebrate both if I demanded it. But I don't. So my birthday is always extra special because it's MY day and Valentine's Day is whatever. Still, I hope you get a special day. :)
