Happy Birthdays!

It is that amazing month of OUR BIRTHDAYS! No matter how old we get—and Melina is older, FYI—we both love to make a big deal about our days. And if you think money determines how great the day is, then think again! These are a few simple things you need to make a birthday special.

A TIARA - I don't know what the male equivalent of this would be, but I know that every girl needs a tiara on her birthday. And it isn't a princess thing for me. I prefer to think of it as a Queen for the day thing. I wore mine at work all day and was told that everything I said was okay because ... TIARA! Melina wore hers on her birthday as well. It's amazing how few people in our neighbourhood even notice a grown woman in a tiara. I guess it it by far not the craziest thing you see in the course of a day.

A WAND - Our wands had long, sparkly, rhythmic gymnastic-like ribbons on them. I ran up to people at work, flicked my ribbon around and proclaimed "I have a tiarrrrra and a waaaaaand!". The cats were fascinated with Melina's wand on her birthday. All four in the room at the same time for something other than food! It was a Birthday miracle.

A SPECIAL MEAL - Not necessarily anything special. I went with comfort food and had cheesy noodly yummies. Melina had our family favourite of taco salad. Just enough to make it special.

MAYBE A LITTLE TREAT -  I am trying to stay away from the mention of anything money related, but as this wasn't even 10.00 I think it's okay. Melina picked out a new nail polish, because that is her thing. I couldn't really afford a gift but I did make her a bracelet. There is always something you can do to make things fun, right?

AMAZING FAMILY - We are blessed with an amazing group of people, blood relatives and friends that were chosen, who are now family. Hearing from them is a huge blessing. Getting to spend time with them, even doing nothing, is the best thing I can imagine. 

So there you have it—a great birthday time! Of course, Melina and I could have an awesome time if you locked us in a closet. lol! Oh yeah, that's the last important ingredient:
