  2. My birthday is in August and I always look forward to my favorite chocolate cake with white frosting! A friend of my mom always made my birthday cakes growing up and she even made the groom’s cake for my wedding. Her cakes were always my favorite part of my birthday!

  3. We once had 8 cats while living in rental that only allowed 3. Several were very similar looking but they were always in the windows. I always denied having extra cats or said I was cat sitting. The cover story worked for 3 years.

  4. I'm a February birthday, and my husband knows that my preferred dessert of choice is a cupcake. Top choice would be a white cupcake with chocolate frosting, but I'm flexible. The cupcake shop that is my top choice only opens up in a very limited way for COVID, so fingers crossed he gets in line early! :-)

  7. My birthday month is March! I love me some cupcakes with real frosting, not that whipped crap) 😉. Something about me is I work full time at a college but also started a side hustle last year selling all size clothing last year online. It has gone gang busters and I love meeting all the new people ❤️ Tebble. tebblestearns@yahoo.com

  9. Well being a Thanksgiving baby, you'd think I love pie over cake, but no. A super moist choclate cake with thick real frosting, with a cup of coffee is heaven.

  11. Happy Birthday Sluggy! My birthday month is November. The best birthday was a surprise birthday party with about 50 people. The funny thing about it was that my friend made a mistake about the date of my birthday. The party was in August. I was really surprised.
    I'm not sure how everyone got the date wrong. Oh well, it was fun!

  13. Birthday is in September! Remember early BD - about 3 or 4 years of age. Favorite birthday dessert is probably chocolate lava cake. Thanks and belated Happy Birthday!

  14. HI! My name is Rose and this is my first time entering! How fun! My birthday is in July. It was always super hot when I was growing up so my mom would have a double party. My sisters birthday is in August and we had to share, always! But that meant double cake! chocolate for me and vanilla for my sis. One year I received a little porcelain cow for my birthday! He was adorable. Of course everything thought I was crazy because I cried when I got him. :) I am a little odd about odd gifts! lol
    Thanks for the giveaway fun! And Happy birthday!

  15. Happy Birthday! I'm a June Girl, I always liked that my birthday was 6 months after Christmas. Spacing presents for the year. Kid thoughts!

  16. Hope you have a wonderful birthday - too bad you can't go out & celebrate....sigh. My birthday is in July but I don't have them anymore, so a moot point :). My favorite cake of all time is an ice box cake which no one seems to. have every heard of - you take very, very thin chocolate wafers, put whipped cream in between them and refrigerate until stiff. OMG!!!

  17. Happy Birthday Sluggy,
    My birthday month is August, I was a summer baby and I do really love summer.
    My favorite birthday happened a few years ago when I had learned I had cancer. For my birthday my 10 year old granddaughter( with the help of her mom) planned a surprise birthday party for me, inviting all my family, fixing all the food, decorations, flowers and a spécial birthday cake. Three years later still have the decorations up.

  18. Happy (early) Born Day to YOU!
    My birthday is next month. Feb. 16th. I was supposed to be a valentines day baby as that was my due date. Mom went into labor on the 14th and didn't have me until the 16th! Poor mom. Back then they just let it go on and on and on. Thanks for hosting another awesome giveaway. Crystal H.

  19. Nothing beats an Edgar's Italian Cream Cake for my birthday.
    I had birthday parties sometimes but not yearly or even every other year. It was sporadic, but birthdays were really not a huge thing at our house other than having cake and ice cream and getting a couple of gifts. (small presents___real gifts were only given at Christmas)

  32. My b'day is in April and the BEST birthday present I ever received is the love of my life - my husband surprised me by taking me to a Frank Sinatra concert and treated me to a lovely Italian dinner complete with singers serenading me to "what are you doing the rest of your life!" May your b'day be filled with love, life, laughter and happiness for now and always and in all ways!

  33. Happy Birthday week!!!

    My birthday is in August and I look forward to root beer floats...not much of a cake person :)

    I had birthdays with my immediate family, but had only one party for friends....a "slumber" party on our enclosed porch. Because of that, we celebrated our four girls' birthdays in grand and very inexpensive ways. Always a family party with grandparents and aunts and uncles and later cousins. Always a friend party with their closest friends...usually a swim party (school pool or lake) and a sleepover (living room or tent in backyard.) There would be themes that the girls and I would work on for the month...homemade themed games/activities and crafts, themed food and cake. Always a pinata :) Our parties were never like anyone else's and done in a way we could afford, but they were so much fun!

  34. My daughter works in a bakery and always makes me a scrappy almond torte piece of cake. Since being diabetic I can't eat a lot so she gets pieces of almond cake with a delicious cream icing and puts almonds on it. It is in a small clam shell and I share with my husband. aerodog@zbzoom.net

    ReplyDelete
  35. I cannot think of a favorite birthday gift since I have received so few. I can remember the worst, though. Happy Birthday!

  36. My favorite cake is homemade strawberry with strawberry icing.

  37. My worst birthday was big #40. My now ex-husband ordered me a dozen dead roses and had them delivered to my office. The only flowers he ever sent me.... I am trusting that #62 in March will be much better :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I always call or text my boys at exactly the time they were born. Lucky for me they were both born during the day. lol. One year I got a text from my youngest saying I had forgotten to text at his birthday time. He was living on the east coast that year and I was on the west coast. I told him nope it wasn't his birthday on the west coast yet and that was where he was born. We got a good laugh out of that. Take care.

  43. My favorite cake is chocolate with white butter cream frosting. None of that whipped foo-foo stuff for me! Probably won't have a cake this year as I doubt the family will make the trek from Atlanta for the occasion.

  44. I am hoping this year we might get to go to a real restaurant to celebrate my birthday. aerodog@zbzoom.net

  45. My husband flew my mom down for my 50th birthday. I pretty much only remember seeing her at the Eldorado Buffet (casino) where I live in Reno. I had open heart surgery a few months before and multiple complications had me in the hospital 6 weeks and totally out of it. So I was still in a fog and it felt like a dream. Also that year was our 10th wedding anniversary right before my birthday - don't remember that either. lol

  46. Happy Birthday!!

    My favorite way to spend my birthday is traveling. My husband and I usually plan a getaway over my birthday week. Last year we didn't get to travel. Hoping for a nice trip in 2021.

  47. One weird birthday present was a hot air ballon ride. It was too windy in April and every weekend for months so didn’t actually go until July.

  48. #62 coming up in March. It's kind of a big deal-I COULD retire if I had to and would have a source of income other than my 401(k). I have told myself that I have to work until I am 65 and then I can retire :) Would still be almost 2 years away from "full" retirement.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Costco cake is just about the best and the cheapest around. I'm a vanilla cake kind of girl :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah! It's your birthday! Celebrate in style. Take care and thanks for doing these give aways and giving me something to look forward to - reading your blog. Ahh.... the life of a blog voyer.

  51. Happy Birthday!! I hope you are enjoying your day ( : One way I enjoy celebrating my birthday is getting pizza from my favorite pizza spot.

  52. Beavis the feral cat ended up being a birthday present of sorts. He bit me while I was catching him so had to keep him. The animal shelter has to put them down if they’ve bit a human and we had to make sure he wasn’t rabid. It took him 11 years to warm up to me but now he’s the clingiest cat of all.

  53. For about 20 years, I celebrated my birthday alone by choice. I would get up in a great mood, get dressed, eat something I really liked, and head out for the day. I visited antique stores, junk stores and talked to my friends who owned these. One year, I first had to get gas and told the guy who owned the station it was my birthday when he asked me about my day.

    THEN, he filled up the tank and would not take money. At the first shop, a gift shop, I told the woman the same thing and she gave me something. Well, that was a no-no. So, at every shop, I kept that to myself. At each shop, I would open the door to leave and tell the owner that today was my birthday and she was on my birthday tour. Every time, the friend would exhort me to wait for a gift. I just kept going and roared off.

    I did this and enjoyed my day. One year a friend wanted to spend the day with me. Half way though and far from home, she announced she had a date with the guy she met the day before. I was furious, had to take her home and never finished by day by going about to shops. AND, the guy never showed up! That was not a good birthday tour for me. I continued for a few more years.

    For all these birthdays, I had a great time. And, I did other things with friends.

  56. Happy Birthday Sluggy -- I have to wait for my birthday, it's not until September. I like Doritos probably more than birthday cake, so sometimes have cake -- and sometimes not.

  59. For me, the best birthday gift would be a stay at home day in my pjs reading and watching movies snuggled up with a warm blanket in my recliner. Actually, I'll take one of those days anyday! :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Here’s another random one. The video from yesterday reminded me of my Spice Girls days. A friend and I went to their concert in character. I was Ginger (dyed my hair and wore a Union Jack outfit) and he was Sporty. I still have my Spice watch but let my nieces have my Ginger doll. Thanks for bringing back the memories!

  61. Favorite cake would be a flourless chocolate torte with ganache (sp?) or a cheesecake. Yummy!

  62. Happy Birthday! My favorite cake is white or red velvet. Although I'm not picky and will pretty much eat any as long as it doesn't have coconut in it.

  63. My birthday is in June and though I am not trying to rush getting older, I can not wait because the snow will be gone and the warm weather will have arrived. I love a good, homemade vanilla cake with mocha icing but my family thinks I love ice cream cake. I always choose it because they all love it so much and since, wow, good birthday cakes have gotten so pricey we only have it for birthdays. I am on the master email list. Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. On my birthday we always have DOC (Day of Crystal) My usual fun has been going someplace to eat that I got a birthday freebie for. Sometimes both lunch and dinner but the main thing for me is hitting every thrift store in Reno / Sparks. Of course if my B day were to fall on a Sunday a lot of the thrift stores are closed so I would pick the day before or after. My husband is my driver and my wish is his command. lol.

  65. I moved to L.A. after graduating from college for no reason and with no plan. Boyfriend/now husband and I saved up a whole $1k each, loaded his with some stuff and my cat and took off with some Yahoo maps directions. We ended up in a weekly hotel in east L.A. since we didn’t know where we were.
