  • Not exactly how I wanted to celebrate my Birthday!

    Yes, today is my Birthday- May 21st- I am not looking for any attention or anyone to say Happy Birthday! However I have had many texts from people that I am either related to or just good Friends with....Okay you can wish me a Happy Birthday, and Thank you!

    However today I had planned today to do the trail for the Horse Back riding with my 2 kids. We haven't done this since 2008. So yeah it was overdue. Then afterwards go to Teppan Edo for Lunch....walk around World Showcase, probably get a Henna.... maybe try something later or eat a snack. But Definitely my time in Disney with my kids & Wanda..... and then I had thought I would go back to the resort (Caribbean Beach) and catch whatever movie was being played at the pool. Enjoying the hot tub as well.

    But Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...... that isn't what happened today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Instead I slept in until 6:30am (I get up at 4am for my temp job), watched repeat episodes of ER while eating a scrumptious Chocolate cream cheese muffin for breakfast. At 10am, turned off the tv and was on the computer trying to figure out why my pictures never downloaded on my computer. Then started to work on my Dad's- Father's Day present and all the while texting a friend, a colleague from work, and here & there from my son in CA. Then ate lunch- chicken salad + a Cherry Coke (which I haven't had in a LONG time)

    For the rest of the day, a nap is scheduled lol. After that picking up a cake, that I ordered on Monday (actually 3 little bundt cakes to celebrate my birthday & Ryan's Graduation. Got 3 flavors, because I couldn't decide )- and finally picking up dinner at Olive Garden... at least dinner will be Yum- but not exactly Teppan Edo....

    It is 72 degrees here in eastern part of PA....not 93 in Disney. Thank you for letting me explain my Birthday.... and I still had a nice one!

    Happy birthday!

    And I'm so glad you were still able to enjoy it, even if it wasn't what you'd planned. The one big plus I would say is that I'd rather have those 72 degree temperatures any day, rather than the 93!

    Enjoying some relaxation time on the Transatlantic cruise on the Disney Magic - I'm Cheryl and with my husband Mark, we love visiting Disney and exploring the world...

      However I would still wouldn't mind the 93 degrees here. It should be warmer here by now. Thank you Cheryl!

    Happy Birthday!! Sorry you didn’t get to spend it the way you wanted. Just curious, do you normally bake or buy your own birthday cake? Just wondered cause I refuse to do that myself which explains why I haven’t had a birthday cake since I was 19. Certainly not holding my breath that I get one this year on my 58th either. DH is clueless.🙄 Wishing you a wonderful evening! 😊

      I'm sorry it couldn't be what you had planned, but glad you had great weather and made the most of what life doled out to you. Maybe next year you can have that desired celebration. Sending loads of birthday pixies your way to sprinkle you and make for a great rest of the day.

      Well, I am a baker and I have in the past made my own because there were certain flavors I liked at those birthdays. But this year I decided to buy my birthday cake. I went to "Nothing Bundt Cakes"- and I bought 3 mini ones, because I couldn't decide what flavor I liked. They were only about $4.00 a piece. Duncan Hines, the butter recipe one is a good and moist yellow cake, and I like that too. If you really want a cake for your birthday, then take a stand and make your own!

        I should make or buy my own but that’s even more depressing. I bake DH’s favorite angel food cake every year for his birthday and he doesn’t even bother to buy one for me. I hope you had a wonderful birthday. 😊

        Sometimes you have to do what you WANT! Why is it depressing to make or buy your birthday cake? Its YOUR Birthday, and you shouldn't expect someone to buy you a birthday cake. As you have said that your husband doesn't even bother to get you one. And I hope you make his cake for him and not expecting him to get you one? That's a losing battle right there. Take the reins and make yourself Happy- get your own cake. I did have a wonderful Birthday!

      Happy Birthday! I'm sorry it wasn't what you wanted it to be. My birthday was the same. I hope we can make up for it next year.

      Happy Birthday! Sorry that it wasn't exactly as you planned.
      That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.
