Happy Birthday Random Tuesday!!
Nope, we're not celebrating the birthday of my Random Tuesday posts (although I probably should go try and find out when they were "born" and then I could do one! lol). This Random Tuesday post is based around the fact that this week is my birthday week! Just thought I'd post a few fun birthday-related questions to all of you, and share what I love about birthdays and celebrations myself!
(As always, you know how it works: put your answers in my comments section, mention in your comment that you're posting it on your own blog, or just don't participate at all and enjoy my and others' answers. Ha!) Either way...join in!)
If today was your birthday...
1. What kind of cake would you want to eat?
Well, since it's ALMOST my birthday I'll let you in on my cake secret. My Mom always makes me a cake and I can request whatever kind I want. This week I am requesting Italian Cream Cheese Cake. Her recipe is FANTASTIC and I cannot wait to get a piece of it on Saturday, when we will celebrate at my parents'.
2. How old would you be?
I'm still holding on and will be celebrating my 39th birthday on Friday (No, really, that is how old I'll be. 40's not until next year!). Born in the great year of 1968!!
3. And someone gave you $100 to spend just on yourself (no groceries! nothing for your kids! no exceptions!), what would you buy?
I'd probably go somewhere thrifty (maybe Cato or Goody's) and buy me a few pieces of clothing and some accessories (I'm really bad and rarely buy clothes for me!). If any money was left over, I'd go to Barnes & Noble and buy me a new paperback mystery. If any money was still left over, I'd go to the local scrapbook or hobby store and buy some patterned paper and probably some letter stickers. And if any was left over then (I doubt it!!), I'd go to Starbucks and round the day off with a frappucino!
4. Where would you go to celebrate?
Five or six years ago, we started a tradition that now the girls hold me to every year! We go bowling every birthday, followed a late-night meal at the restaurant of my choice. So, this Friday night (after the high school football game), we will be going bowling! We're looking forward to it!
5. Would you make a wish when you blew out your candles?
I ABSOLUTELY always make a wish when I blow out my candles. But I can't tell what it is or that would ruin it, right? (But I kinda think mine would be two-fold. One would involve Alabama having a great football season this year, and the other would involve my having a spirit of love and service and joy all year long!)
Okay, now, that was FUN!! So join in... and I can't wait to see your answers!!
(By the way: Thanks for letting me get away with not posting or visiting anyone's blogs yesterday. I finished both of my articles--one yesterday and the other just a few minutes ago--and I feel so relieved about that! We are having a great week here! Our Revival at church is ROCKIN!! I have already been so refreshed and pumped up by it, and we are all just anticipating a fun, fun week to come!! And, oh yeah...college football is just 4 days away!!)
