First oiff Happy 33rd!!!!

I'd have to say my 18th birthday was my favorite because my DH proposed. Sounds too young yes but sometimes you just know and we knew and still know today after a little more than ten years of marriage! It was so special because he asked me on one knee in his family's living room in front of everyone. It was so sweet and perfect, you could just see the love in his eyes! Of course I said yes, we'd been in love since we were 15 and only fell in love more each day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Hard to pick a favorite birthday. I've only had one non-family party and that was when I was 10. A group of friends from school and new ice skates as a present.

Kim said...

Happy Happy birthday!!!!!
I've had so many, I can't really remember which would be my favorite. I would have to say that the ones where my mother would get a cake and my family would all gather around the table. I can remember those clearly and wish my parents were still here to celebrate with. Unfortunately, they have both passed away recently, and I miss them dearly.

Dawn Parker said...

Happy Birthday April. How generous(like you always are) to give a gift on your Birthday. Love the prize. Great question. Last Birthday the whole Family went out and had a nice dinner at Olive Garden. With older child it's not often we can all be together so that was extra special. Can find me in the group if I win. lol.

Happy Birthday!!! =]

My most memorable birthday would have to be in Germany a few years back... I think for my 24th, my friends and I dressed up in retro 80's outfits and hit the town! It was a blast and what made it even better is we were also celebrating my best friend's birthday which was two days before mine.

Happy Birthday. My birthday is this month as well - 12/29, but I'm not 33 - turning 50! I think all my birthdays have been good. As long as I'm alive & breathing, I'm good with that! This year my sister is taking me out to lunch and then for a mani pedi!

Happy birthday April! I'm so lucky to have you as a friend. One of my favorite birthdays was #25 - Dave got me a puppy. You may have heard about him. LOL!

Pretty Little Paper Love said...

Happy Birthday April :D My favorite birthday was my 22nd. My dad threw me a huge party at a lighthouse to make up for the fact that we didn't get to celebrate my 21st together because he was in the hospital in Cleveland having heart surgery!

Yara said...

Happy Birthday!! Wishing you that you are celebrating well with your family!! My favorite birthday?? I really cannot choose, everyone is special in their own way!!! I still remember when my mom celebrated my 5th, my 19th at college, maybe my 31th is the most special since just two weeks before, we found out I was pregnant from my first kid! So beautiful moment!!

Yesi said...

Happy Birthday!! I think I have too many, but this year 2010 my 20th birthday. It was special because my nephew called me and sang me a song. He's a very special person in my life, so that meant so much to me also because I have all my family and because this is the first birthday I wake up next to my husband =] (recently married) :) Hope you have a wonderful birthday enjoy it! :)

Brittney said...

Happy Birthday!

My favorite birthday was my 17th, because it was the last one with my mom around

down_memory_lane said...

Happy happy birthday to you !!!
I would have to say by far my most amazing birthday was my 19th. My then fiance was deployed at the time in Afghanistan. Even though it was my birthday I was pretty bummed because for some reason I had not gotten a call from him for days. My mom got me a small cake and after lunch my family sang happy birthday to me. As I closed my eyes to make my wish ( which was absolutely that he was safe and healthy and would come home soon)they brought him in from just the other room where he had snuck in to while they were getting the cake ready and sitting me at the table. As I opened my eyes to blow out my candles there he was right in front of me! I didnt know what to do and pretty much crawled through the cake to hug and kiss him... Best birthday EVER <3

I hope you have an amazing birthday!

Hi April, Happy Birthday!! Hope you have a wonderful birthday ever! my favorite birthday is in 2005 when I had my little princess she's 2 months at that time!

Ashley said...

Happy birthday, April!! My favorite birthday was the year Adrian (my DH) took me to Disney World and Epcot for my birthday. We had dinner at a nice French restaurant at Epcot and got to sit by the window and watch the fireworks. He got me a custom-designed watch and matching framed print as my big gift. LOVED that year!!!

Amanda said...

I would say probably my 25th, because that was my first as a mom.

Happy Birthday!! My birthday is the 26th and I'm really dreading it this year.

patty said...

My fave bday is the 27th bday (a couple years ago)..when I had to spend the whole evening in the hospital -- labor and delivery. I thought that my baby would like to share a bday, but she chose to came out the next day. She wanted to have her own bday. :D
Thanks for the chance.

Hope your birthday was Delovely, April!! ;)
My favorite borthday was my 7th, I received a purple bike with a glittery purple banana seat and handlebar streamers!

Cath said...

Happy belated birthday, birthday twin! I guess I was 14 years old on the day you were born. I don't want to be eligible for the give-away, just wanted to stop by and say hello. As for my favorite birthday (I've had so many by now), I would have to say it was my 25th. I'd just given birth to my second child on the 10th, and she is the best present I could have ever have gotten.

Have a moxie fab holiday, April! :)

Carrie said...

Happy 33rd April - may you have a wonderful year ahead of you!!!! I think my favorite birthday would have been my 30th - my husband planned a trip for the 2 of us to the Biltmore Estate - just gorgeous!!!

Catherine said...

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! My favorite had to be my 40th - my husband and best friend put together a luau party at our house. My brother and his partner even flew out from Cali to help me celebrate.

Happy Birthday and have a Very Merry one!

My favorite birthday was my 60th. (I'm 73 now.) My husband, brother, and sister-in-law sprung a surprise party for me at my brother's house. They invited all my friends from near and far. They even paid for my daughter to fly here to New York from California, and had her stay over at their house for the weekend. It was so unexpected and so lovely!

Since that time, my daughter married and gave me two lovely grandchildren. On a sad note, my husband passed away nearly two years ago. My brother and sister-in-law are still very dear to me.

Thank you for the chance to win your birthday giveaway. I'm not sure how to let you know how to contact me. I don't have any of the profile items listed. I came here from the scrapbook.com forum. I sent you an email.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Oddly, I loved my 50th birthday. As I've grown older, my birthdays mostly go unrecognized, but when I "made it" to 50, everyone was sooo nice. DH made a wonderful meal and a good friend came to share, I got incredible gifts - it was just a great celebration.

JustYolie said...

Happy Birthday to you! I don't have a favorite birthday memory but I just know that I am blessed to have my Mom around to celebrate it with me. She always prepares my favorite meal and we all get together to celebrate my day.

Oddly enough, my 33rd birthday was the best. I don't even remember what we did or how we celebrated but it was the first time in a long number of years that I felt healthy and happy. My kids were 3 and 9, I had lost almost 70# and I was traveling a lot, to some awesome places for my job. I hope this year is a healthy, happy, wonderful year for you!!

Happy Belated Birthday!

My best birthday (so far) was my 27th Birthday. I'm a HUGE "Alice in Wonderland" fan so my mom, sister, and I had an entire Alice in Wonderland themed day. We went for afternoon tea at this place called Alice's Tea Cup on Manhattan's Upper East Side where we had tea and scones and sandwiches on tea trays with mismatched cups and saucers and dishes (our own little mad tea party). After we ate, we went to go see Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D since the movie just happened to come out the weekend of my birthday.

first off hope you had a wonderfully blessed birthday!

as for myself I think the best birthday I have had to date was this year--I happen to graduate around the same time and my family all pitched in and gave me the kindle as a bday graduation gift--I had really been wanting one but they were kinda expensive so I held off and to receive one was just such a blessing and it truly made my day--I love how my family knows me so well! God has blessed me beyond belief!
