10 Ways to Have a Happy Birthday

It’s Tuesday, so it must be time for a list of ten! Today’s theme is 10 Ways to Have a Happy Birthday and since my birthday is in May, some of my selections are season specific…

1. Sleep in

2. Wake up to the smell of fresh lilacs blooming outside my bedroom window (always a favorite growing up, allergies or not)

3. Have brunch (there is no better meal) with friends, of course, and mimosa’s

4. Go for a date at the spa, including a massage and mani/pedi – why not go all the way

5. Enjoy a fruit smoothie for lunch (which should never include banana’s…they make it taste funny)

6. Go for a leisurely walk (or perhaps a spin on the bike)

7. Visit the zoo

8. Relax with a cocktail

9. Have dinner with friends and family – Chris makes a mean steak and veggies on the grill; of course, if I was in Binghamton I’d want lamb speedies and a side of Little Venice spaghetti

10. And lastly, top the day off with a strawberry short-cake with real whipped cream birthday cake

    I never pictured you as a biker before!

    IT just lost all my responses — I was up to #8, so am not going to peck that out by hand again on my iPhone. Will wait until I get to the laptop 🙂
