Give her a call later today. I always prefer those over birthday texts because I feel like it takes more effort. You can take her out to dinner, just the two of you.

I would also give her a call. I’ve had friends wish me a late happy birthday and I didn’t really think anything of it. Everyone gets busy. I’m sure she isn’t mad 🙂

I have a bad cold but I took my mom out to dinner for her bday and got her a peanut butter sunday with a candle in it fo desert. I guess I have been hitting the nyquil a little to hard because at the end of singing her happy birthday I blew out her candle. I have no idea what I was thinking but I felt like the BIGGEST ass hole.

Sometimes being a jerl just happens, if its someone worth keeping around they will understand. Hope everything worked out for you!

You’re not a jerk. You made a simple mistake. It’s obvious that you meant to do it, so there’s no logical reason to beat yourself up. 

Just give her a call and get her a nice present. It’s ok.

It happens sometimes. You did end up remembering, and you’re going out with her group later. It’s ok :).
