Yep, it’s my birthday! This is the first year I haven’t done something outrageous (drunk bar-hopping party bus, ‘incognito’ theme with wigs and sunglasses, renting out a bar and karaoke DJ) and I think it’s a combination of wedding planning taking over AND the fact that Im 31. This seems like such an odd year to celebrate, no? I’m just going out to dinner with my fiance tonight and my family tomorrow like a sensible grown adult.
What are YOU doing today? Are you hung over already? Are you wearing green? I tried but Mark said my green dress made me too ‘boobalicious’ for my shop, so I’m wearing green earrings. 🙁

Happy birthday!!! Not much going on here. I’m waiting for Darling Husband to come back from picking up my stepson. I haven’t felt well for a few days, so I’m just hanging out in my pjs watching Friends. Rough life these days 😉

I’m wearing green, but so far we’re not doing anything fun.
Darling Husband is at the office because work has been crazy and I spent the morning taking a GMAT practice test. My math needs some MAJOR help.
It’s 3pm now, hopefully Darling Husband will be home soon and then maybe we can go to a pub to watch the England/Ireland rugby game.
It’s a cold, grey English day so I don’t really mind being holed up inside.

Thanks chicks! It’s good to make it another year. And I hear that your 30s are some of the best years, so I’m pumped about that. Life’s good.
@KatNYC2011: Sucks about the weather! Here in Columbus we’re having ridiculous, unseasonably warm weather. It’s BEAUTIFUL, going to be 79 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. lolwut?

Happy birthday! Went to the bar at 7 a.m. (first time I’ve ordered a beer at 6:55 and drank before brakfast, lol), but was home at 10 a.m. Oh, and I have green nails. 🙂

@KristenGotMarried: I’m SO jealous! It’s 52 and raining here. Maybe I’ll have a cider while waiting for Darling Husband to come home. Start getting in the spirit.

Happy birthday!!! While 31 isn’t ahuge milestone or anything, it’s still your special day! I’m being a rather lame adult today, no crazy shenanigans. I suppose I should put something green on though =). Have a lovely time at dinner tonight!

Happy birthday, girl!
We went out for drinks with friends last night and we’re heading to Niagara Falls for the night tomorrow, so we haven’t actually planned anything for tonight. We will either end up being invited out to a pub or bar later on, or we’ll just stay home and watch the Leafs lose! Same ‘ol. 🙂

LOLing at boobalicious dress
I am trying to find hotels for our honeymoon. Yes I’m 6 weeks out and have no hotels booked.

Happy birthday, KristenGettingMarried! 🙂
Enjoy your laid-back evening. I’m not much of a partier, so I’ll be spending the evening probably in a bubble bath relxing with a book (or more realistically on the ‘bee planning more of our wedding, haha).

Not much today. By the way, I just turned 31 on March 10th and I barely did anything either. Father took me out to lunch and we went for a walk, but thats basically it.
Though I never did barhopping or anything like that for my birthdays. You want to know the one thing I always do on my birthdays???? I am ALWAYS off from work. I HATE working on my birthday! So I always ask off, months in advance if possible.
And now that I reached the age of 31, Im thinking that I want to do something awesome for my 35th or 40th birthday. I know someone and she’s turning 50 soon and I think shes going to London for her birthday!!
Oh and next year, I am seriuosly thinking of doing a hot air balloon ride. I’ve wanted to do one of those for a few years now, but never did. I think my 32nd birthday is perfect for that!
Anyway, Happy Birthday and remember, you might not be into the bar thing anymore. But there is so many other choices out there. Or none at all. I liked my simple birthday this year. Im sure you are too. 🙂

Nothing special going on. FI is the ginger Irish in our relationship (I’m the ginger Italian – yes we do exist), but he doesn’t care to celebrate. We’ll be going to the gym soon and to the store to buy something so I can cook a fabulous meal.

My partner is sleeping (worked last night so he got off at 7am today and stopped at the marked for fruits & veggies). We might go to dinner tonight, but no crazy bar hopping antics – I’m kind of over that and still sick. I have green nail polish on, for what its worth

I was working for about 3 hours, now I’m home and cleaning—wish I was outside on this beautiful day! I think we’re going to see an Irish band tonight.
