It’s My Birthday…

July 7, 2011

And I’ll post if I want to!

I’ve been planning this post all week.  And consequently have had, “It’s My Party (and I’ll cry if I want to)” stuck in my head all week long.

And by “planning,” I mean I knew what I’d title the post and absolutely nothing else.  I’m really organized 😛

So technically my birthday’s not until Saturday, but who doesn’t like stretching out a holiday that’s all about them?  So let’s start celebrating today, shall we?

Fun Not-so-fun-for-everyone-who-has-to-be-around-me Fact:  I’m notorious for doing whatever the heck I want on my birthday and justifying it with my favorite phrase: “It’s my birthday!”

As in, “you have to drive the entire 6 hours to Santa Fe, it’s my birthday!”

Or “you have to fit me in for a massage, Mom, it’s my birthday!”

Or “you’re paying for lunch today, Sister, it’s my birthday!”

Or maybe even, “I’m not posting any pictures today, it’s my birthday!”

Yeah, I like that one. 

Or better yet, “I’m not posting at all this weekend, it’s my birthday!”

So, with that said, I bid you farewell.  And promise abundant birthday weekend pictures when I return.


Pretend it’s your birthday and fill in the blank: “It’s my birthday and I’ll _______________ if I want to!”

And feel free to leave me some birthday love 🙂 Not that I’m demanding it.  I’m just sayin’… it’s my birthday!

    Happy birthday kiddo! I usually say that youth is wasted on the young – but not in your case. You know how to celebrate life. Have fun and pull out that birthday *wildcard* whenever you want.

    Mine: “It’s my birthday and I’ll be a cranky jerkface brat if I want to!”

    Happy birthday weekend! And darn right you can justify everything with “It’s my birthday.” Looking forward to hearing about your adventures!

    And, “It’s my birthday and I’ll eat cookies for every meal if I want to!”

      Cookies already make an excellent breakfast, why not lunch and dinner too?

    Happy Birthday Lauren!!!!!!!! I hope it’s an amazing one for you. I mean, how could it not since you’re going to be in SANTA FE? I would demand that my mom drive the entire way there too if it was my birthday.

    It’s my birthday and will force people to hike in the mountains with me on my birthday. Or drive me to Santa Fe. One or the other. 🙂

      Santa Fe and hiking? You wouldn’t have to force me to do either of those things!
