Sometimes & Always: Birthday Edition

Happy Tuesday friends, even though it's technically my Wednesday since there's no work on Friday! Woohoo! Anyways, I think that I'm going to do a sometimes and always birthday edition. I'm linking up with the gorgeous blonde Megan over at Mackey Madness.

Sometimes: I feel like I want to do absolutely nothing to celebrate my birthday.
Always: I know that that's something I don't actually want.
April 8, 2011 - M and I out celebrating my birthday
Sometimes: I get the birthday blues.
Always: Good friends help get rid of them by making me laugh.

Sometimes: I want the most ridiculously overpriced gifts for my birthday.
Always: I still want them, but ask for more practical things, like running sunglasses. What do we think of these? I kind of like the lighter coloring on them.

Sometimes: I have way too high of expectations for my birthday.
Always: My birthday turns out to be the best, and I'm genuinely happy.

April 16,  2011 - Birthday dinner with friends and family - Me, Dad & Mom
Sometimes: I worry that I won't be able to blow all the candles out at once.
Always: I do.

What are you saying sometimes and always about?

I hope you have a great birthday with candles and all the gifts you want :) And of course spending it with M, family, and friends!

And running sunglasses?! I need to get on that for sure. I like the ones you posted!

Happy Tuesday, girl!

isnt it funny how when you grow up, birthdays are all about being with the people you love. :-) I hope your birthday is perfect and fun! It will be the first M and you live together!

I always get anxious about my birthday - high expectations and worry its going to be a bomb. I don't know why.... It happens every year and every year my birthday is better than the one before!

Hope yours is amazing! Get those running sunglasses, they are awesome!

I love birthdays! Yours, mine, everyone's. I enjoy watching people open presents and I love seeing what people get me. I can't give suggestions because I like to be surprised and I'm afraid I'll regret my decision. Yours will be great because you're an amazing person!!
