My favorite birthday memory was when it was just my husband and I. He got us a hotel room in our city but we celebrated on our own and had a quiet night in. Then we hit the beach the next day.

I can't think of just one birthday memory. I think mine would be a collective memory from my childhood parties of always getting a cookie cake. I love me some cookie cake!

I can't decide between the white, blue or light green! They are all beautiful!

I have a few favorites. One was a few yrs ago. My sisters and my parents and I went downtown to have tea. It was at the Drake Hotel. It was wonderful. I was full. But then we went back to my parent's place and I later met up with my husband. Then he took me out to dinner at an Italian place that we both like. OK too much food but it was great to be able to spend it with my family. I also received a beautiful bracelet from my husband that year.

I have to say my favorite birthday memory is when I had a Samantha (American Girl) birthday party for my 10th birthday. My grandmother made me a dress that looked like Samantha's and we had peppermint ice cream and petit fours. So fun!

Lauren said...

Happy birthday! I love those purple ones!

My favorite birthday memory was a few years ago. The husband treated me to a spa day and then that night we had dinner at my favorite resturant. It was quiet and relaxing and I had a great day!

My favorite birthday memory was doing yoga at sunrise when I turned 25 (was not easy ) and knowing that not only do I have the entire day ahead of me, I also have my entire life ahead of me.

Tina said...

It's my 28th birthday today too!!!! No, seriously?! How cool is that? Happy Birthday! Isn't 28 fabulous?

My favorite birthday memory is when turned 13 and my parents rented a limo for me to take my friends around town in. I don't think we really did anything but it was a lot of fun! :)

I would choose the teal colored ones, definitely! So cute!

I think my favorite birthday memory would have to be for my 30th. My mom and dad set it up so I got a gift, card, greeting, any sort of acknowledgement from a friend/relative for the 30 days leading up to my 30th birthday. On day 23, I had 23 balloons tied to my car. On day 18, I had 18 travel-sized tissues delivered from a friend since I will be crying about turning 30. It was a really great way to celebrate!

My favorite birthday memory is when I was in middle school and my mom took a group of girls and I to a hotel in Dallas (about an hour away) and we got to shop at the Galleria and then stay at the hotel! That was a big deal for a middle schooler!

Happy Birthday Ms Sweet Tea!
A few years ago when I hit the magical number five oh, hubs had a surprise birthday party. All the attendants wore pink somewhere on their person that night. Including the guys :)
Ah, such a fun night!

BroncoMom said...

Jen said...

My favorite birthday memory happened just this past year. I was sitting around a table with my two beautiful kiddies, who were digging into my cake, my hubby and the rest of my family and I thought, "You know what...it just doesn't get any better than this." Plus I was turning 31 which means that birthdays are just a crap shoot from here on out anyway. Hahaha! Happy Birthday Sweetie! I think I have celebrated all 4 years with you. We have been friends for a long time :-)

Jen said...

And of course I follow :-)

Jen said...

I would choose the turquoise. I wear lots of black and that would make them really pop.

A and E's Momma said...

Happy birthday lady!!

A and E's Momma said...

I totally would love to show off the salmon colored ones. Love them!!

A and E's Momma said...

Hmmmmm...Favorite birthday moment?
I'd have to say it was when the hubs threw me a surprise party and had my closest family come down from PA and NJ to VA to celebrate. I had no idea he had it all in the works. It meant the most because it wasn't long after we moved away and he knew how homesick I was. It was the best present I could have asked for.

Taylor said...

I follow :)

Taylor said...

I would choose the mint!

Happy birthday to you! My fave birthday memories are all surrounding trick or treating (since my bday is on Halloween). I also remember a super cute haunted house cake that my mom had made for me. It was covered in candy ghosts and pumpkins. Super cute!

Mrs. Jansson said...

I am a loyal follower to your blog. (You know that though.)

Mrs. Jansson said...

I looked at the earrings - super cute! All the colors were really pretty but I think my favorite was the salmon color. They'll look great with my spring/summer outfits. Thanks for putting on this givewaway!

First off - happy birthday gorgeous!!!! I hope you have the best day ever!! Secondly, enter me. I am an old follower. My favorite birthday memory is dancing on top of the bar at my 21st birthday. My favorite color is the white ones, GORGEOUS!!!!

Becca said...

What a fabulous giveaway! Hope you have an equally fabulous birthday!

My fave birthday memory isn't really a birthday memory, I suppose. My husband proposed in the days leading up to my 24th, so I was REALLY the center of attention when my birthday occurred a few days later! It was awesome!

Becca said...

Also I've been a long time follower/lurker!

Becca said...

If I win it's going to be a tough choice between the salmon color and the blue color! They're both so cute!

Megan said...

Happy Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you have a great day! My favorite birthday memory was my 21st -- yes I actually remember it, ha!

Megan said...

I'm a follower and would love the goldstone color if I wear - perfect color for FSU gameday!
