Since our hop is in honor of Ella’s birthday, I thought I’d share one of the best birthday memories I have.

Several years ago, I had the feeling that my husband was planning something. He didn’t hide it well. However, I didn’t know exactly what he was planning. I never could have guessed. He planned a lovely getaway at a resort–complete with a hot tub and wonderful food. It’s a favorite memory of mine, especially now after a baby. I’m feeling like I’ll never be able to go anywhere again ๐Ÿ™‚

What is a favorite birthday memory of yours?

  1. Oh wow, that sounds amazing!

    The best thing that has happened to me for my birthday was a hotlap in a V8 racecar for my 18th birthday!

  2. What is a favorite birthday memory of yours?

    Would have to be the day that my husband took me out for the weekend as well…

    Happy Birthday, Ella.

  5. My birthdays all seem to blur together. I remember fun parties as a kid. My husband hasn’t surprised me like yours. I’m going to have to tell him about this. ๐Ÿ™‚ My girlfriends surprised me this year and that was so much fun.

  6. I would have to say my 21st birthday ๐Ÿ˜‰

    16th birthday, got my first “real” gold ring, from my parents! Happy Birthday Ella! so glad to be a part of the blog hop!

  9. My sister and I are nearly exactly two years apart. There’s a 4 day difference between our birthdays. Because of this, our parents used to have our parties together. Now, I’ve heard that a lot of kids weren’t big fans of joint birthdays, but that wasn’t the case for me. I loved that they’d by 2 gallons of ice cream (one chocolate, one vanilla) and 2 sheet cakes…and that the whole neighborhood and church was invited. Our doors were opened (we were living in the Philippines at the time) and would have anywhere from 50-100 guests coming in and out through the day. It was all friends and fun…and I don’t think I even cared if I got presents. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite Birthday is when my uncle gave my a picture of my grandfather who I was name after but never saw .And I gave it to my mother for Mother’s Day.Happy Birthday Ella

  35. I grew up without any birthday parties (at least none that I remembered). I looked forward to turning 15, my favorite number. My 16-year-old sister threw me a surprise party, inviting most of her high school class, and all of mine over to our house. My very unpleasant father actually left us alone to have fun for a couple of hours. We were good kids, so he didn’t have to worry. My sister had also made me a “Happy Birthday pie” of my very own since I didn’t really like cake. She’d presented that to me that morning, so I didn’t expect anything else. (Not that I expected the pie.) It was a beautiful day.

  36. My best birthday memory, definitely my 21st! The entire weekend was a blast filled with so much joy and laughter.
