1. It’s better than the alternative.

2. My hubby treats me like a princess every day, but on my birthday, he treats me even more special.

5. I love celebrating other people’s birthdays. Especially those close to me.

6. I love surprises.

7. It’s better than the alternative (I know I said it already, but it bears repeating).

8. I love birthday cake.

9. I really do love and appreciate all the Facebook birthday wishes.

10. I love that there is one day a year that everyone has that IS their special day.

    What a great list. Indeed, celebrating a birthday is better than not, in my books. As cheesy as it is, I like the facebook wishes too.

  6. I do agree with you. I think it’s great that everyone has their special day. And homemade cards are the best.

    A great list though if someone at a restaurant sings to me #1 and #7 don’t seem like such a bad alternative to me.

  8. Courtney says:

    I love that I get Carvel Cake! 🙂
