Hey, hey, it's my birthday....

Speaking of birthdays.....wait, what? We weren't speaking of birthdays? Well, it's my blog, so we are now.

Happy first day of April and welcome to the month-long celebration of my birth. The way I see it, your birthday is the perfect excuse to get away with bad behavior live it up, so why limit yourself to just one day?

Let's say I just happen to find myself wandering through the mall when I come upon a pair of fabulous purple heels. But I am unemployed, so I should save my moolah and keep moving, right? Unless...it happens to be my birthday, then I could buy them as a birthday gift to myself, right? But this only works on a single day each year. Hence, the birthday month. Instead of a single day, I get 30 whole days to use the birthday excuse. Genius!

Note: The birthday month excuse also works well for indulging in cake (Well, it is my birthday!), getting out of cleaning the house (But, honey, it's my birthday!) and other impulsive behaviors for which you need an excuse (What can I say, it's my birthday!).

A few of the items on my birthday wish list. Oh, don't pretend like you don't have one too!


1. A subscription to Netflix. I am totally obsessed with Netflix lately. It's only $8.99 a month for unlimited rentals. Um, hello?! You can't rent two movies at Blockbuster for that price. This will happen, I'm just giving Nate the opportunity to call it a birthday gift.



2. I've been stalking this dress from Victoria's Secret since last spring, but it absolutely refuses to go on sale. I don't need it, so I can't bring myself to spend $75 on it. But that's kind of what birthdays are for, right? I feel a birthday month excuse coming on....

3. A month of Bootcamp. Because trying on my bathing suits the other day was a rude awakening. Enough said.

4. A giraffe print purse. Love it. Sigh.



5. A Tempur-Pedic Pillow. My sister has one and I am insanely jealous every time I see it. I would just steal it, but she will know immediately that it was me. Wonder if the birthday excuse would get me out of that one?

For 30 days that is a short list. I'd keep going if I were you...

Happy Birthday month! You definitely have to take advantage of the full 30 days that its encompasses!

Happy birthday month. I do the same thing for mine. And I always have a birthday list though no one usually asks me for it anymore.

Katie said...

I totally missed this post yesterday but I have to say Happy Birthday month! I, too, celebrate a birthday month and I think it's the most wonderful idea!

I hope you get everything on your list! (I have one of those too!)

Jennifer said...

Tax day? What a wonderful day for celebrating...I'll be 26 on the 26th!

Thanks for the compliments on the layout. I have been working on it for over a month and I'm so proud of it :) but I still think it needs a few tweaks and some fun stuff on the side bars! Its a work in progress!
