Happy birthday to you! Are you going to tell us how old you are? My fav birthday memory was when I was 22...I had to work that night at the restaurant so my friends arranged for a clown to come in with balloons to serenade my with during my shift...so funny especially in front of all my customers who I was serving! Then we had prezzies after work and way too many alcoholic beverages at a local dance club...yeesh! I couldn't behave like that now even if I wanted to! Cheers Alli...from another Alli!

Happy Birthday to a fellow aries. I am not big on parties, so I guess my favorite was a few years back when I was home alone because everyone else had to go to work. I had all my new pressies, stamps given to me before they left for work and a dvd and I spent the day doing whatever I wanted, playing with my stamps, watching movie etc. When the kids and dh came home we went out for dinner.

Patsy Turner said...

HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY!!!! I just found out about your blog, love what I see; Hope you have a blessed day, and MANY MORE!!!!

Alex said...

I think it would have to be when my husband and I think he was probably my fiance at the time, turned up at my work, which was when I worked at the County Council - he turned up at the main reception in a suit holding a silk rose and I had a telephone call to the bureau asking if I would go to their main desk. I turned up and there he was and he had turned up to take me to lunch bless him. I have quite a few when we were going out not so many since we had the kids, boo hoo!!! he he

Happy Birthday to you! My favorite birthday memory would have had to be when I turned 25 and found out that after trying to get pregnant for a few years, I was going to finally be a Mommy! I got the test results back on my birthday and it was the best present I could have asked for with the exception of the following March having my beautiful son placed in my arms.

Happy Birthday! I just celebrated mine the other day. Nothing spectacular just lunch with my DD and dinner out with DH. I guess my favorite one was when I turned 40. My husband and kids sent me flowers with black balloons and a bottle of prune juice attached. My DD wrote a poem about me and attached a picture of me in a bikini (younger me) and sent it to family and friends.....

Happy Birthday and how nice to share the goods on your blessed day.

My memory? I actually remember my 5th birthday party. We had just moved to a new house, friends from the old house came, there weren't enough chairs so I was relegated to my baby sister's high chair and took a lot of teasing about it from my friends. But the table was filled with friends, a lot of noise, great cake.

My mom always made me a lemon chiffon cake from a mix...Betty Crocker. But then the company stopped making that flavor. When I questioned them online, they actually gave me a recipe. How kind was that. So on my birthdays now, I can make my own favorite cake.

Kristine said...

My fav memorie would have to be the year my now husband proposed to me on my birthday. Have a happy birthday.

Cheryl said...

My favorite birthday memory is from my youth when my Nana always made me a birthday cake with 7 minute icing that she would tint a pale shade of pink or blue or green. Every year I had a cake like that and it wasn't from a box. They raised chickens so they had lots of eggs so she would save the whites to make her angel food. She has been gone 20 years now and how I would love to have a taste of her angel food cake. She is making it for the angels now.
Thanks for the memories.

Sandra L-M said...

Happy Birthday! I think my favorite was turning 15, in my culture you get a real big party. It was also stressful but the goods certainly were more than the bad. Sandra

Julie said...

Happy Birthday!! My favorite birthday memory was when I turned 30 my family and friends all threw me a surprise birthday party. It was just before I got married and my DH drove us to the party at a friends house. The only hitch was, we were the first ones to arrive! So the surprise wasn't really :) It was still fun! Hope you have a great day!

Bettina said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day! My favorite birthday was when my husband and kids (then 4 and 5 1/2) brought me breakfast in bed - coffee and chocolate biscote mmmm.... Then I got to open presents the kids picked out - Hubby went to KMart and let the kids pick things out. I got a purple feather duster from my daughter and a candle with flowers from my son. Don't you know I had to do some cleaning that afternoon?!?! I still love that feather duster. It's the little unexpected things in life that come from the heart I find to be the most prescious. Have a great burthday : >

Alli,
Happy Birthday to you!
The b-day I remember best was when I was about 11. I was having a party at my house. The night before, my Mom decided to "trim" my hair. It looked so bad, she had to rush me in to the beauty parlor in the morning to fix the haircut. Made it back home on time to have the party. Funny memory now, but at the time it wasn't so funny!

Cheryl K said...

Happy Birthday!!!

My favorite birthday? I'm not big on parties, so I guess back when I was a kid and my uncle came home from Germany and we had to pick him up at the airport and he remembered my birthday! I still have the bracelet in my jewelry box.

scfranson said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite memory was a birthday cake I asked for when I was about 15 with a lion on it. It was so cute.

Rose Ann said...

Happy Birthday one day early!! Thanks for the candy opportunity. My favorite birthday memory was the first one I shared with my husband not too long after we started dating. He got me pearl earrings...and I still have them (that was 17½ years ago).

Tracy.H said...

Happy Birthday!! Awesome candy...those Primas are gorgeous!

I would say that the best bday for me was when hubby and I went to Disneyworld. I spent my 29th bday having breakfast with Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger! Never forget it!!

Susan said...

My "fondest" birthday memory is my surprise 40th party when my best friend from Houston was here the week before and her husband kept telling me "see you next weekend" and she'd say "no we won't!" over and over again - but being oblivious I didn't pick up on it! It was still a surprise!! And Happy Birthday!!!

Julie K said...

Happy Birthday!!!!

My favorite birthday memory was my first year after my divorce - my son was three and was very upset that I wasn't having a birthday party. He insisted on going to the store to buy a birthday cake for me and wanted to buy flowers too. I gave him the money so "he" could buy them for me. He went to the flower display and instead of picking one bouquet - he picked up the entire bucket of flowers!!! After we got home and had cake and put the (one bouquet) of flowers in water he went and got his favorite teddy bear for me as his gift. It was so sweet and I still tear up thinking about it.

Gerrie said...

Happy Birthday. My favourite birthday memory was when my children made breakfast in bed for me a couple of years ago.

Robin Stewart said...

So are you going to let us all know how OLD you are? My favorite birthday was when I was in grade 10 and my friends planned a surprise party for me - 1 week before my actually birthday. I went out to dinner with a friend and was ready to go home, we opend the door to my house and SUPRISE! there were ALL my frinds. I was just so wowed by all the effort they went to.

I hope your day is packed full of enjoyment, happy early birthday.

Janet B said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a terrific day!
My fav birthday memory is when my son, who was about 10 at the time, made me a card that listed some of the things he loved about me. Made me cry reading it. What a thoughtful boy. Just love him and his brother to death.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Kevin & Amy said...

Happy Birthday tomorrow Alli! My fav. birthday memory is when I turned 8 - my mom brought out my cake with candles and everything at my party with school friends and it said "Happy 7th Birthday, Amy". Now, you have to understand, that is TOTALLY my mom to be scatterbrained like that. I still like to remind her about it:)

~Amy H.

Renée said...

Happy Birthday! My fav birthday memory ... it has to be last year. My hubby took me out to dinner and then once we got home, he waited in the car (or so I thought) to take our sitter home. I walked in the door to a flash in my face! He'd organized a surprise birthday party! It was the most fun I'd ever had.

ipkstampshappy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! - Wow a favorite birthday memory, at my age (51) it's hard to remember at all. LOL
Actually I think one of my favorite birthday memories would have to be when I turned 40. My family had this HUGE sign put in our front lawn with a big buzzard that said, "Look who's 40" and a bunch of black balloons. All day long people would honk as they drove by. It was hilarious & a good fun ribbing was had by all 3 of my brothers and hubby. Ida

~Lana B.~ said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!
My fav was probably my 14th b-day. My sister purposely got married that day so no one would remember MY birthday (we didnt get along back then...but we do now thankfully). My aunt realized what my sis had done to me so she took me home to her house after the wedding. She had a whole weekend planned JUST for me!!!! I still love her to pieces!!!

Happy Birthday!

My favorite birthday memory is when I turned 25. My husband, who I was dating at the time, threw me a surprise party. He had it catered and invited all of our friends. I had no idea that he was doing it!

Kelly A. Battles said...

I really have two faves:
When I turned 25, I was living in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, as a missionary. It was amazing because a small group from my home church (in FL) was visiting me. It was just so special since it was the first time to be so far away from "home."
The other is when I turned 30. My friends are AWESOME -- they threw me a surprise birthday scavenger hunt. It was so cool and took me all over town (St. Augustine) with my hubby to find clues. The end was a party with all my friends and all of my favorite foods. (I MISS THEM -- as I just moved to VA last fall.)

Lilian said...

happy early birthday!! =)

my favorite b-day memory was when my husband threw a beach bbq for me last year. all our close friends were there to celebrate with us, and he cooked everything from scratch!!

Anonymous said...

Happy almost Birthday! I love my birthday even if it means getting older. I am 30 and still do a countdown every year. My favorite memory is the Surprise Sweet 16 Party my mom threw for me and I had no idea. My sister would even hand out invitations (little princess ones how cute) in front of me at school and I paid no attention!

lisa - stampylisa on SCS said...

My fave bday memory, was in 1997 when I was planning my older half bro's surprise 40th bday party, at the clubhouse at my condo complex, and decorating and getting everything all ready, when they sent me for an errand and I came back and all my friends were there too, it was a combined surprise for us both, mine is aug 19 and I had turned 30 and his was the 6th, so it was right in between. we had a blast. It was funny afterwards tho, since I decorated for my own party!!

Nancy said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Hmmmm, favourite birthday memory.... all of my memories growing up seem to be the same. I have a summer birthday so I would have a party in June before school let out and then a family thing on my actual birthday. I was the smart one in the family... I knew that if we went out for dinner a bunch of people who can't sing would sing me happy birthday and make a spectacle in the restaurant... so I always chose to stay home for BBQ steak... and my cake was always a chocolate cake with chocolate icing and pink writing!

And since it was summer and my parents worked full time, who was there to stop me the day after my birthday when I had cake and ice cream for breakfast??!!

jodene said...

Happy birthday!I have three favorite birthday,s,they are not my own but when each of my children turned one.They were special days to see each enjoy their first birthday,s.Of course each were covered in chocolate cake by the end of the day.My kids are now 8,6,and 4,but I beleive I will never forget the years they turned one

Shannon said...

My favorite birthday memory was just my last birthday - I turned 30. I insisted I was going to Mexico for my bday in November. My now fiance proposed to me in Puerto Vallarta on my 30th birthday - diamonds make 30 easy!

Nancy said...

Happy Blessed Birthday! I hope you have a very special day to remember.
My favorite b-day was my 34th. It was spent on my honeymoon in Hawaii. It was very special indeed. Thanks for asking.
Smiles,
Nancy Grant

Debi said...

Happy Birthday!! I think one of my favorite birthday memories was my 16th birthday. I had moved to a new school just the year before and really didn't have alot of friends there. My mother contacted some of my friends from the old neighborhood and invited them to my SURPRISE party!! I was SOOOO surprised and excited to see my old friends!!

BlogHore said...

Well, my 40th, which was JUST over a year ago, sigh, was pretty amazing. A total surprise, great food, great friends AND a karaoke machine! LOL! It was a blast. My 16th was pretty cool too.

Tammy said...

One of my best birthday memories was being proposed to at a restaurant on my birthday. I did not expect, but wondered why he kept reaching his hand down. Apparently, the ring was down in his sock.

bethtrue said...

Wow -happy birthday!! Hope its a good one!!

My most memorable was my 40th bd (just last Nov). - my husband planned out a whole surprise birthday party for me on the afternoon of my birthday, at one of our favorite local restaurants. It was great! I still can't believe he coordinated the whole thing all by himself!!

Beth (mommy to a busy 3 1/2 year old)

Happy Birthday Allison!

My fav b-day ever was when I turned 13 - my parents rented the local pool and I had as many girls as I wanted. Then we all went back to my house for scary movies, cake, snacks, and a sleepover - I don't recall sleeping much that night!

Thanks for sharing your b-day with us. Have a great day - you deserve it!

Amy said...

Happy Birthday!!!

I can't think of any favorite birthday memories. My birthday is right after Christmas which usually puts a damper on things. There is usually lots of family still around, though, which is nice.

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday! I'd have to say the one that I remember is my 26th. We moved into our first home that day. We have been working for months remodeling it and were so thrilled to finally move in. Thanks for the chance at great goodies

Julie Lacey said...

My favorite birthday was when I turned 5 years old. I remember because my mother went out of her way to have a Strawberry Shortcake look-a-like come and all my friends and family were there. I felt like a princess for the day!!

Regina Davis said...

My favorite birthday memory would be my 25th birthday. Unknown to me at the time, it would be the last birthday that I spent with my Mom before she lost her battle to breast cancer. It was very special indeed.

Happy Birthday Alli!

Nadine said...

Happy birthday!

I guess my favorite memory (although at the time I thought I'd die of embarassment) was when my whole family (about 16 of us) went out to a restaurant and they had hired a gorilla to come and surprise me. I was just so embarassed because some of the cute guys from school were there. lol Now that I look back on it it's hilarious.

Terri Earley said...

Happy Birthday to you! My favorite memory is my 22nd birthday because I got my very own puppy. She is now 6 years old and we are both loving life!

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Well Happy, Happy Birthday to you Alli!! You look fab-u-lous!! Hmm...memory?? Well I would have to say my favourite birthday memory was when I turned 30 (not so long ago) and my husband surprised me with an evening out and tickets to a Bryan Adams concert!! BA is my all-time fave and his concert was amazing!! It was a wonderful birthday and my honey really made it memorable!! *gush*

Karen said...

Happy Birthday! Our birthdays were very family oriented, no big parties. My favorite memories are when my mom would let us decide on what cake for her to make and what we wanted her to fix us for dinner that night.

Anonymous said...

Hi Alli, Happy Birthday!! My favorite memory of my birthday would have to be mom making my cakes for me. Always chocolate, what else!! There was always money in it! It was so much fun to look for the coins as we ate. Seems strange to think about doing it now, everyone would worry about choking!!! Denise bennett

Anonymous said...

Happy Birthday to you! My fav birthday yet so far would have to be my 17th birthday. I don't know why really it just always sticks out in mind. My best friend had a birthday party for me at her house and it was just great :) Thanks!

I hope you have a good one!

Michelle said...

My fav birthday...well there has been many but I guess it's just year after year spending it with my family and seeing what creative cards and birthday cakes my kids & hubby comes up with...PS I also celebrate my 34th birthday tomorrow April 3rd!

Happy Birthday!

Karen H said...

My favorite birthdays were as a child when my grandma would bake me a special chocolate cake with no icing.
I hope your birthday is wonderful.

MsFit said...

Hey there! Happy Be-earlied birthday, my dear friend. I used to HATE my birthday (for reasons you already know)but since my kids have been around? LOVE it.. the joy in their eyes when they give me stuff.. and well, getting stuff.. I love my birthday now. :)

Nadine Papove said...

Happy Birthday. I have had a lot of great birthdays, but i guess one that particularly comes to mind would be my 40th, when my brother had a huge party with all my family & friends. It was very touching. All the best Nadine

Sara's stampin cards said...

Happy Birthday Alli!
I'd have to say my 5th birthday. It was the real she-bang. A full party with decorations, my mom making her special birthday cake, games, prizes and lots of friends and family. It was right before we moved and birthdays since then have been a little more "low-key".

Cindy Keery said...

Happy Birthday Alli!

hmmm my favorite birthday memory was celebrating my birthday as a little girl with my Grandpa and my Mom. Our birthdays are close together so we often had a big family dinner to celebrate.

Leslie Brown said...

Happy Birthday! Today is my son's birthday, too. My favorite birthday memory is receiving a telephone in my room, at age 13. Of course, I had to share the same line with the rest of the family, but it was a princess phone and mine! Thanks for sharing!

Angel W. said...

Happy B-Day! I have a bad memory, but my 13th birthday stands out as I had friends over and we went to a costume party (my b-day is close to Halloween). I still have the Trivial Pursuit game I got for my b-day that year. :-)

Goinalways said...

Hi Alli,

Happy Birthday!! My favorite birthday was when I was 12 yrs old. My Dad was not real big on birthdays and the present stuff (probably due to lack of funds)but he bought me a portable record player and a Monkee album to go with it. My girlfriend stayed overnight and we had a blast playing and singing with the Monkees.....

Dale Anne said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Allison!
Hope YOUR day is the BESTEST ever!!!

Angie Juda said...

Happy Birthday!!
What's my favorite birthday memory? It would have to be my 40th birthday. My husband surprised me & flew my aunt from Georgia to Kansas to see me. I was standing in my kitchen talking to a couple friends and my husband walks in the house in the middle of the day pulling a suitcase behind him, silly me thought he was lacking creativity and he was storing my present in there, I even had little frown on my face. Then behind the suitcase my aunt steps around and shocks me. I instantly started crying...could not believe she was here. All my family says that I can never say another mean word about my husband, for him to call her, basically a stranger and set it up....amazing!! I love them both!!

Selina said...

Happy Birthday! I think my birthday memory would probably be the year I turned 18. I never had birthday parties with friends, it was always our extended family prior to that, and that year I had my youth group come over. It was hilarious having them raid the games and want to play Twister!

Mara said...

Happy Birthday!
I dont think I just have 1 fav birthday memory. My mom would always do wonderful things for me.
One of them she drove us to a place thats 1 hour away. That had fun and games.

Linda Shaw said...

Happy Birthday, dear Alli, Happy Birthday to you:) My favorite birthdays were those as a young child when my grandparents were still alive. I remember standing in the window with paper napkin on my head that my mother had made into a hat, waiting for my grandma & grandpa to arrive. They always brought me TOYS while all the other relatives would give clothes:)

Julia Stainton said...

HI Alli! Great blog candy! And I just love your blog! My fave birthday memory is wayyyy back when my husband and I were dating. He lived two hours away so to see him, go out for dinner and get a wonderful gift is one of my favoritie birthday memories.

Sharon in NE said...

Happy Birthday! Today's my 25th wedding anniversary. (Just saw my dh...he didn't mention anything...but that's okay...when he realizes it, I'll get myself something REAL nice...wink wink...

Best birthday memories? DH hasn't been any better at that, so I'll have to say probably when I was 10 and had my girlfriends over for a slumber party. I think living another year IS celebration enough. HAPPY birthday!

Scrappyant said...

Happy Birthday!

I have to say my favorite memory of a birthday was at work. My birthday had fallin on a Monday. I was already upset because it was Monday...back at work. When I walked in no one said anything. The morning went by and still no
"Happy Birthday". I just assumed that everyone forgot. Oh well. I went out for lunch and cheered myself up with some shopping. When I came back to the office... my desk area had been decorated with balloons and streamers. A cake was waiting for me at my desk. The really got me. It was the best surprise I got at work.

Steph said...

My favorite birthday memory is of my friend's birthda. We threw her a surprise party for her 19th and it was a lot of fun. I'll tell no more stories about it though. :)

dd2njoy said...

Happy Birthday to you...hope it's an unforgetable one for you!!!
My fav b'day memory was for my sister's b'day,she doesn't like to be the center of attaraction so her daughter and (I helped a bit) threw her a family only surprise party while she was in the house.
Her grandson asked her to come check something on the computer and while he was keeping her busy,we decorated,got the cake out and when she came out YELLED SURPRISE!!!! It was great to see the look on her face,after all it was her 50th Birhday!!!
Great blog candy!!!

Jan Scholl said...

My birthday is a week before Christmas, so we never did anything much with it growing up-I was two months early, so who plans on having a close to Christmas baby anyways? I do remeber have tea and scones with my gramma tho. SHe woud put lots of milk in my tea and some sugar too. And read my tea leaves for me after. I do the same for my nephew who loves sharing tea with his crazy auntie.

We stayed at The Royal York...ate lots,shopped, relaxed...slept and I felt so pampered and relaxed when I came home to my family.

Dawn Mercedes said...

Happy birthday!!!!!!! (ChaChaCha!)

One of my favorite birthday memories is when I was quite young. We lived on Lake Erie and there was a small secluded beach area down the street from us. That day my Dad took me down to the beach. The rest of my sisters had to stay home. We had a few hours of playing in the water and in the sand. My dad got this big long stick and wrote "I love Dawn" in very large letters in the sand. Wow...what a great memory!

Candisue said...

Happy Birthday! My sister's is tomorrow April 4 and mine is Sat April 7. The one that sticks out the most is when my husband and I had to go to a farrier (person who shods horses) clinic in WI and it was my birthday. BTW- We make horseshoes and farrier tools. One "older" gentleman that was there told me that he lost his knife under some shelves. While I (Being a nice person) dug around on my hands in knees in a dirt covered floor looked for it, He was off doing something else. After about 5 mins, I just about had it. I stood up, turned around and said "Don! Are you sure you dropped it?" Only to find the entire clinic (20+ mostly strangers) standing there, a birthday cake (Lit candles) and they all sang to me. I was as red as the shirt I was wearing. He still gets a kick out of this story every year when we see him at conventions!

Deanna said...

Happy birthday Alli. One of my b-day memory was when I was 20. My friends and I went to the Canary for my b-day dinner and a guy (much older and I don't know him) came over and says "Happy Birthday" to me and it was his birthday also.

Kathy aka stampkat said...

My favorite birthday memory has to be when I turned 11! 10 Speed bikes were fairly new to the general population (not just to racers) and I had been begging for a 10 speed for months. Earlier in the day, my mom had taken me to a hair salon called, "Isadore" which was very fashionable at the time, where I got a Dorothy Hamel haircut! She made my favorite dinner--homemade spaghetti and meatballs and then my friends came over for cake and ice cream and a sleep over. Even though it had been a great day, I remembered thinking I was a little dispappointed that I hadn't gotten a bike. A few minutes later, my dad said, "lets go outside and do sparklers"--my b-day is near the 4th of July. When we went out, there was my brand new 10 speed--a Bicentenial version from Huffy!! It was the one I had been begging for--white bike with red, blue and gold accents and an eagle on the seat! I know I am dating myself and I have had lots of great birthdays since but that is my favorite memory. Alli, here's hoping you had a wonderful day!

Erica said...

Happy Birthday! My favortie birthday nmemory was when I turned 30, my mom came for a surprise and surprised I was. We spent an awesome week together. May you have many more :)

rohla said...

My favorite BD memory would have to be hanging out at the local {establishments} with friends for my 30th birthday--no big hoopla, just spending a milestone bd with good friends was special!

Amy

rohla said...

So sorry, I forgot/{frogot} to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! My son's bd is on 4/5, what a great week for a bd, huh?!

Amy (again)!

Andrea M. said...

♫Happy Birthday to you♫ You look fab u lu♪
kay i'll stop singing, the wishes are there. I've been reading your blog for the last week, and am loving all your creativity. It's great inspiration.
My most memorable bday is the 18th...not for the obvious reason of being legal in the bar, but for what happened on my first "official" visit. I had a bottle of beer, and a friend tapped the top with a Cheers, and i quickly lifted the bottle to my lips, to stop it from foaming over. I ended up at the ER getting 46 stitches in my upper/lower lips. the top of the bottle was missing! I can laugh now, and am thankful that i now have a beautiful set of FULL lips to apply lipstick to, that i didn't have before.
Have a great BDAY!

Happy Birthday!! Our birthdays are soooo close - mine is on April 6th.
My favorite would have to be the party that my husband had for me on my 50th. What a great time sharing with family and friends.
