Twenty-Nine

As of today, I’m officially in my last year of my twenties! Year 28 was great – we bought our first house, made a great group of friends, had another successful year of business, and celebrated our first wedding anniversary! It was a year of settling into our new life in Virginia and our marriage. There were a few growing pains along the way, but it was generally a joy-filled year, which I’m incredibly grateful for. I’m hopeful that 29 will be a continuation of the good stuff!

I’m going to enjoy the day off of work (mostly) and give myself a little time to rest and recharge. Mike has some things planned for today — all I know is that I should be ready to leave the house later this morning. I’m looking forward to spending the day with him!

In the spirit of celebrating, I want to give away a few of my favorite things to one of you!

To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post telling me your name, your favorite birthday memory and your email address. Winner will be randomly chosen later this week and contacted via the email address that is left in the comment.

Thanks for celebrating another birthday with me!

  1. Happy Birthday Lauren!

    My favorite birthday memory was when I was 9. My Grandmother gave me a huge basket full of Lisa Frank pens, notepads and goodies. Besides my engagement ring, this is still probably my favorite present I have ever received!

    I hope you have a great day!

    Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday memory is playing the penny game. My mom would hide pennies all around the outside of the house, and for every penny we found we would get to cash it in for a piece of candy. It was my favorite birthday party game! Ashten.may (at) gmail.com

    My favorite birthday memory was celebrating my 29th birthday with my 4 day old daughter! I was slightly concerned that I'd be in labor on my birthday, thank goodness she came a little early. πŸ™‚

    My favorite birthday memory has to be from my one of my HS birthdays. I went to a VERY small school and one of my best friends was the daughter of the science teacher (her brother & I actually share a birthday!). I arrived to school & opened my locker to find a singing card rigged to the door so that it would play when I opened my locker. My locked was also stuffed – jam packed – with balloons! As if that wasn't enough, she convinced her dad to ask the office to do a fire drill and had the whole student body sing happy birthday to her brother and I. Such a sweet memory!

    Thanks for sharing some of your favorite things on your birthday!

    My favorite birthday was when I turned 17. Two of my friends and my boyfriend at the time all took the day off from school (our parents must have approved this but I can't even remember?) and spent the day doing my favorite things! We went swimming at a hotel pool, had lunch at my favorite restaurant, then made our way through the fence maze at a local college to have cake in the middle! It was 20 years ago but still one of my favorite birthdays!

    Happy birthday! I think my favorite birthday memory was actually more of a half-birthday memory. My birthday is in June so in elementary school, I always got to bring treats at another time. One year, I was scheduled for December and my Grandma baked a huge platter of gingerbread people for my class. She's an incredible baker and I've always just adored her so that was a special treat and something I'll never forget.

    My favorite birthday was spent on a mission trip to the Ukraine. It was our last day and our host family went out of their way to make me feel special. They even served chocolate cake for breakfast. We flew to Poland and stayed over in Warsaw that night. Had a wonderful dinner outside in the Old Town Market Place. And while visiting some of the shops I found a little wooden music box that plays Happy Birthday.

    My favorite birthday memory was my 16th birthday. My school traveled to DC for the inauguration, and that day we toured the Air and Space Museum, and out of nowhere my history teacher started singing Happy Birthday at the top of his lungs, and everyone around starting singing it as well!

  19. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

    I can't choose just one favorite memory, so I'll share 2. πŸ˜‰ My favorite childhood memory was my 8th birthday. I wanted a pink Barbie Jeep for the longest time, and I FINALLY got it. The best part was my Grandmother squeezing into it and driving it into the party. I was SO excited and SO surprised.

    My second favorite was last year. My birthday falls exactly 2 weeks after Christmas and 1 week after New Year's Day, so usually by the time it rolls around, I'm ready for the social activities to simmer. Knowing this, last year, my boyfriend arranged for my 3 best friends and their husbands to meet us for a quiet dinner. We ate Mexican, drank margaritas, ate cupcakes and laughed till we cried. And I was home and in pjs by 10pm. It was perfect!

    I hope you have the best birthday!

    It's hard to pick my favorite, because I LOVE birthdays and I've had many good ones. Turning 6 in Disney World and having the Fairy Godmother sing Happy Birthday to me was a highlight. As was my mom surprising me with a trip to Texas to visit friends for my 21st birthday. I'm pretty lucky with birthdays.

    My favorite birthday memory is from my childhood. My parents surprised me with a Disney Vacation. I had no idea until we were boarding the plane and the best flight attendant announced β€œthis plane is Disney bound!” My parents had a whole story about picking my cousin up from the airport and said we had to go get my cousin off of the airplane. I was a gullible child! 20 years later and it still ranks at the top of my list of surprised moments!

    Hi Lauren! Happy Birthday! I hope you have a great day celebrating!

    One of my favorite birthday memory was when I turned 24. My husband planned a really fun and special day. In the afternoon, we went to a baseball game at the college we both graduated from. I was having the best day, the weather was perfect and my hubby had really planned out such a nice day. Suddenly a bird pooped on my head. Normally, this would be the end of the world for me, but I was in such a great mood and having so much fun that I laughed it off, cleaned up, and continued to enjoy the day. I loved that even though something not so fun happened, we were having such a perfect day that it didn't matter. I know that's such a silly story, but I love that my hubby planned such a good birthday for me and that even though something small went wrong, it didn't matter.

    I hope you have a super fun day and that a bird doesn't poop on you! lol πŸ™‚

  35. Happy Birthday Lauren! Hope you're enjoying your day!

    One of my favorite birthdays was recently when I turned 40. I wanted to do something special to commemorate a 'big' birthday. I made a list of 40 things I wanted to experience in my 40th year. I put a lot of thought into the list and some things were smaller, but others were a bit bigger and pushed me out of my normal. It was an awesome year of trying new things! On my birthday, my closest girlfriends and I went ziplining. I am a timid person, so this really pushed me! But, it was sooo fun! I love the experience that my girlfriends and I had together. It was Fall in MN, so the Fall colors were amazing! We were all so proud of ourselves. Awesome feeling to overcome something that scares you, especially when surrounded by your girls!

  39. One of my favorite birthday memories took place a on a trip with my father. He always wanted to go on a cruise to Alaska. He asked me to go with him. My mother was unable to go at that time as one sister had just had a child and another sister had just adopted a child so she wanted to be there for them. So he asked me to go with him. My birthday was right in the middle of the trip. It was a beautiful place to visit and see part of the country that I probably never would have been able. The best part was being able to spend it with my father who passed late last year. It is a memory I will treasure.

    Wishing you all the best for many more birthdays to come.

  40. I turned 29 back in May, and it's a crazy thing to be at the end of your 20's!

    My favorite birthday memory was when my parents decided to throw me a surprise party for my 18th birthday. They had been acting weird all day, and it's hard to remember now everything that had aggravated me at the time, but I ended up getting so frustrated with them because they left me alone at the house on my birthday. I was meeting with a friend later that evening, but had wanted to spend some time with them. When I met up with my friend at our favorite coffee shop, I realized they had all been in on the surprise and I was greeted with everyone I loved in my favorite place! I immediately understood why my parents had been busy all day, and apologized for getting upset! haha

    I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    Happy Birthday, Lauren! Love following you : )

    My favorite birthday memories are those from my teenage years. Sleepovers with my best friends — eating my favorite foods, renting movies, and staying up way too late talking.

    Looking forward to hearing how Mike spoils you today. Enjoy celebrating!

    My favorite birthday memory was a surprise sweet 16 birthday party. I had just moved to a new town and my parents went all out and invited friends from my old school as well as the new friends I had made. It was a great day. Lots of other great memories since then too as I’m now 48 but that one really stands out.

  75. Happy birthday, Lauren! I also turned 29 this year!

    My name is Molly Martin. Growing up, my mom loved celebrating our birthdays. Think homemade cookie cakes, streamers on the ceiling, celebratory words on our bathroom mirror and a birthday flag on the front door of our home. When I turned 25, it was my first birthday after her passing and my first birthday married with my husband. I woke up to find that my husband had "recreated" her decorations for me, it was so special!

    I hope your birthday was filled with lots of celebration and love from family and friends.

    Cheers,
    Molly Martin

    My favorite birthday memory is a few years ago when one of my girlfriends was living in Sarasota, FL. Me and my bff flew down to see her and stay with her for a few days and we were able to celebrate all of our summer birthdays that trip! I tried sushi for the first time accompanied by yummy martinis πŸ™‚

  79. Happy birthday to you! My favorite birthday memory is a throwback to age 5 (I'm 33 now). My parents, brother, and I spent a week every summer in Myrtle Beach, SC, and a few times our trip overlapped with my birthday. I remember waking up in the oceanfront condo and looking out the window to see a giant "happy birthday" message that my dad wrote in the sand. My dad has never been one to share his emotions openly but that message was his very sweet way of showing me how much he loves me. Plus I got an ice cream sundae that night πŸ™‚

    My favorite birthday memory was my 16th. Not only did my mom take me to the DMV to get my driver's permit right after school (where I passed the test!), but my high school boyfriend at the time sent flowers to me at school which just made me feel like such a queen. One of my girlfriends STILL talks about that day – over 20 years later! LOL!

    Happy birthday! 29 was a great year for me (I'm now 42), and I hope it is for you, too! Growing up in rural Indiana, planning and executing a party for my January birthday was always a challenge for my parents. Too often, a snow or ice storm would pop up and party plans would quickly fall apart. My 5th birthday was no exception… there was a huge dump of snow on the big day and I was crushed. (5th birthdays are major!) Happily, though, a handful of my kindergarten pals (and their brave parents) were able to make my party. We had a blast, and I still have a photo of us all posed around my brand new Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag. Good times.:) amyjodouglas@gmail

    My favorite birthday memory is when my great grandmother gave me a suitcase full of office supplies…a label maker, "junk" mail that I could open and pretend was for my never-ending creative play as a kid. It had colored pens, notebooks, and the best part: an old-school adding machine with rolls of paper tape to use. I thought I had hit the jackpot and still consider it one of the best gifts I've received!

    Happy Birthday, Lauren! I hope you enjoy your special day! My favorite birthday memory was from when i was maybe 6 or 7? And we were living in Oak Park, IL at the time, so we lived on a block. The theme i chose for my birthday was animals, and all my friends had to come to the party dressed like the animal of their choice. Then everything we did was animal related, including eating like animals outside in the front yard. My mom laid out a big tablecloth on the ground, and then the usual place settings…and served us food, but we weren't allowed to use our hands or any utensils to eat. So we had to eat like animals at the trough! I remember it being so funny as a kid! My email is boffthewall@gmail.com

    Instead of a favorite memory, I would have to say I love the birthday tradition my mom, sister and I have… we don't do anything fancy or specific, but we always spend our birthdays together and have a girls day whether that's shopping, getting nails done, going to a movie, etc. I just love spending the day with them and always look forward to that more than getting presents or anything else. I will cherish those memories forever.

  149. Happy Birthday Lauren! My favorite birthday memory (to date) is my 40th. Several good friends (plus my Mom!) took me to NYC for the weekend. We ate great italian food and shopped. But mostly we enjoyed sitting around and laughing. The best!

    I hope you had a great birthday! I think my favorite birthday memory is my 22nd birthday. It was during the summer when my husband and I first started "talking" and my friends talked him into letting them throw my birthday party at his house. He didn't understand at the time that it was just part of the plan to help us get together, but 5 years later with 3 years of marriage and a baby on the way, I guess it worked out! nicholewinkel@gmail.com

    Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day. My favorite birthday memory was receiving an engraved iPod from my high school sweetheart (my husband now) that read "I love you so much". That gift was so thoughtful because my parents didn't have a lot of money and I had wanted an iPod for a long time. The personalized touch on the back was even more romantic. I still have it!

    Happy 29th birthday! My mom is the queen of surprises, so it is hard to narrow down just one birthday memory as a flood of them rush in. For my 16th a group of my guy friends had Happy Birthday written on their chests as I walked out of a coffee shop and then a school bus full of friends were waiting to go celebrate at a lake nearby (complete with beach volleyball) and then we went to my favorite childhood rollerblading rink followed by food/cake/games at our church.

    I think it was my 7th birthday, but I had a butterfly party and my mom decorated our whole basement with tons of colorful butterfly die-cuts. And then my dad, (who is great at building and fixing things but not really artistic) piped this really intricate and pretty butterfly on my birthday cake. To this day whenever I see a picture of the cake I can't believe he did it!

    My favorite birthday memory is from my 30th birthday last year! My big sister completely surprised me with a cooking class at Sur la Table with a couple of my very best friends. It was one of those life moments where the day was just right and the surprise was so overwhelming, and I felt so special. We had the best time together at the class! That is honestly just one of my favorite life memories, as simple as it sounds! And I also found out one of my friends at the cooking class that night was pregnant – she announced it by bringing her sparkling cider out as we all poured champagne to sip while we cooked! Getting older is really fun, too πŸ™‚

    I hope your day is perfect!

    My favorite birthday memory is when my (now departed) grandfather would always say "Dec 10?? That's when the business taxes are due!!" It was his way of letting me know that he could NEVER forget my birthday.

  161. Happy birthday Lauren! My birthday was actually on Monday :). Hopefully my 28th year will be just as wonderful as yours was! I think my favorite memory was when I turned 25. At the time, I had just ended a long term relationship and I decided to play hooky from work. My sister took off as well, so we went to see the Peanuts movie with my niece and spent the rest of the day shopping! It was just what I needed and I loved every minute of it!

    Birthdays are special and should be celebrated to the highest extent! I have two sisters, and although I suffer from middle child syndrome, my sisters and I share a remarkable birthday bond. I was born on my older sister's 4th birthday, and our little sister was born on my 5th (her 9th) birthday. Needless to say, we go big or go home on April 6th!

    I have a December birthday too only my birthday falls just before Christmas. My husband threw me a surprise 40th several years ago and to my surprise so many of my wonder friends took the time to celebrate. As a kid I never had birthday parties b/c school was out and they were always traveling with their parent.

    I am fortunate enough to have so many wonderful birthday memories, but the one that sticks out is from this year! I got to celebrate my 29th birthday at Universal Studios Orlando and my husband locked down one of those fantastic, obnoxious "IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!" pins for me to wear. It was so fun to have employees and fellow parkgoers alike notice the pin and wish me happy birthday all day. I felt like a kid again and I loved it! πŸ™‚

  189. One of my recent favorites was just last year- I took a personal weekend to celebrate alone on a whim. I went to a nearby bed and breakfast where I was the only guest not there for a business event so my meals were catered specifically to me. Talk about spoiled. Lots of hiking, relaxing, reflecting, sleep, and pampering.

    My favorite birthday memory— my husband and I were out for dinner at my favorite restaurant and sitting on the outdoor deck. My grandparents and a few aunts and uncles just happened to be on a boat on the lake we were eating on. They saw us and immediately my grandpa got out his trumpet and they pulled the boat up to the restaurant and led the whole restaurant in singing happy birthday to me. My grandpa then snuck in the restaurant later and paid for our meal. I've never felt so special. πŸ™‚

    My favorite birthday memory was 2 years ago. I should start by noting that my family is not a big gift-giving family, so any presents are highly treasured. My husband had been out of the country for 2 weeks and I wasn't expecting any gift or card. That day he sent me an edible arrangement of chocolate covered strawberries and it made my whole week. He had set it up long before my birthday (when he was still in the states.)
