I have had some wonderful birthdays over the years. One that stands out is when I was 17, a friend had a surprise birthday party for me. I hadn't had many close friendships up to that point. The best part of the evening was that many friends spent the evening with me just playing outside and having fun. The friend that planned the party made a wonderful cake and used my favorite color, purple.

Happy (belated) birthday!

Awesome gift from your husband!

I still remember the lavendar bike with the banana seat (am I dating myself?!?!?) that my parents got me for my 9th birthday. It also had a white basket and fringe hanging from the handlebars.

Tharina said...

Happy Birthday! On New Year's day this year it was my 21st birthday. My family took me to nature reserve where I saw lots of great animals. Especially the elephants were great. One elephant approached our car. He had the most beautiful eyes. I also got a Liverpool FC shirt from a good friend. It was my best birthday ever!!!

Terri E. said...

My best birthday present was a horse. My parents ROCK by the way LOL!

It's a good life!

Happy Birthday (yesterday). My favorite birthday present ever was on my 50th birthday. My late hubby presented me with a hot air balloon ride -- something that I had said I always wanted to do.

Diane said...

The best of all present I evehave ever received for my Birthday was almost 3 years ago, my husband let me get a Golden Doodle puppy, she is the best friend anyone could ever have, if I could only get her interested in card making, she would be perfect! But I love her anyhow!!

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

I would have to say my best birthday present (or best birthday) was my 30th, because I was on my honeymoon. Still happily married 28 years later.

Miesdf said...

My 50th birthday was when my hubby of 30 years surprised me with my first brand new car and a trip to Europe! It was our first alone vacation (last of 8 kids had left for college). It was a fabulous year. I am still having fab years and hope for many more!

Alyssa said...

Wow! What a wonderful present! My favorite was also from my 30th (last year) - a Canon Rebel XTi digital camera! Yay! Thanks for the chance! :o)

mareda said...

My birthdays are always great but the one that stands out is a surprise party my parents gave me on my 16th birthday

Jan K said...

For my 50th birthday my parents gave me a gift card for $200 from SU and a pair of diamon earrings.

Val said...

Belated Birthday Wishes!
My best birthday present was when I was 16 and received my first phone on a separate line. I had to share it with my siblings, but it was in my room...it was great!

Anita Kurtz said...

WOW - way to go husband!!! I think my favorite bday was going to see Phantom of the Opera. I love the music!

Janet said...

My best present ever was for my 40th birthday. My DH enlisted the help of my coworkers to plan a surprise birthday party for me. He then made a power point presentation of my life and showed it at the party. He even made a hard copy of it for me to keep. I was so surprised and touched that he would do that for me. It took a lot of work and he had to do it at home without me finding out. Thanks for reminding me of how much I love my DH and also for a chance to win some great blog candy!

Sandra said...

Happy belated Birthday! As crazy as this may seem, I think my best birthday present was when I turned 30 as well - my first child was 4 months old and had been running a 103 temp for a few days, he was lethargic, not in a good state at all - On my birthday his temp had broke and started acting 'normal' again - I was never so happy, grateful and relieved in my life - it was the best present I could ask for!

Happy B-day Zena!! Your husband sounds like such a sweetie!! I think my favorite birthday present ever was when my husband took me to see Bryan Adams in concert....he's my fave!!!

Karen said...

My children had a picture taken, framed it in a double 5 X 7 frame. The other side has a poem about Mothers. I will always cherish it.

Inkylin said...

A very Happy Birthday to you Zena. Sounds like you had quite a memorable birthday there. Thanks for the chance to win.

Mandy said...

My greatest birthday gift was finding out that our first baby was a girl! - Mandy

isabel z said...

The best bday present I ever received was the one that my son gave me when he was young. He taped himself reading a book about a mom's love for her children. Years later it still makes me cry when I listen to his little voice.

Stephanie said...

Happy Birthday! :D My favorite birthday ever was my last one because I was married! There is just something wonderful about spending your birthday with the man you love! :D He took me on hiking up to this remote area overlooking a gorgeous waterfall. It was amazing!

I am so excited for the chance to win! I can't wait to see what the new releases are!

JenMarie said...

Happy Birthday!!!
Hmmm...anything stamp realated has always been fabulous! ;)

wendy peatross said...

All of my birthdays are special because I share the day with my mom. But on my birthday in 1986, I went to the hospital to have my daughter. She came just a couple hours late, but it has been so fun to share the day with both my mothere and my daughter.

Maria said...

My best birtday present came 11 days after my 31st birtday - my sweet son!

Gigi said...

Happy Belated Birthday. One of the best birthday gifts I received was a party organized by my daughter and having 25 of my very best friends in attendance at a favorite Mexican food restaurant; you can only imagine the hooting and howling we all had over Margaritas and good food.

AJ said...

My best b-day present so far will be my 35th birthday this September...We are surprising the kids with the week in Disneyland!! Good times!

Janet said...

I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday--Happy Birthday. My favorite present that I ever received are the handmade cards my kids give me. I get at least one every year, and I just love them to death! I honestly feel that something homemade is the best gift ever!

kprill9 said...

I would have to say my best birthday present was my daughter. She was born on my birthday. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lyn said...

My best birthday present was a couple of years ago. My fiance started about two weeks ahead of time making sure I blocked the time off for "something special". He told me to dress comfortable/casual and he and his son would pick me up at a certain time. (He never plans ahead, so this was a thrill). At the prescribed time, the doorbell rang and there were my three best girlfriends waiting to take me out. There were several "gifts" with scavenger hunt clues that lead us to mani/pedicures, followed by dinner, followed by painting pottery and margaritas, finished off by coffee and music at our favorite coffee house. It was great fun and incredibly special!!

Book Bling said...

This is hard as all have been fun - so far!
But one year we went to Switzerland and took a ride on the Brenina Express over the mountains. It is breathtaking and a wonderful way to spend your birthday.

Victoria said...

The absolute best birthday gift I ever received was when I was ten and my mom "adopted" a humpback whale for me. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. And it showed showed really knew the things I liked.

rachelM said...

My best has to be my most recent one when I turned 39. My husband won a trip through his work and we went to cancun. It was awesome.

stampinc said...

The one I remember is when my dad did a surprise party for me. He was going to be out of town and got together with my sisters and DH to plan the whole thing. It was great and the surprise was a bowling party. Thanks for a chance.

Julie said...

Happy Birthday!

MaryBeth said...

The best birthday present was from my husband. We were married for only a few months and I woke up to find a guitar waiting for me. He remembered that I had played when I was younger and had expressed an interest in doing it again. My daughter now has the guitar and has started taking lessons!

Erika M. said...

The best birthday present I ever received would be on my 21st birthday. That's when I found out that I was pregnant with my daughter.

Kathy W said...

Happy belated birthday! Hey, my birthday was yesterday too. My favorite birthday was when my husband wrote a poem for me about how we met and our courtship. We used it in our wedding. Hope you had a great day yesterday; thanks for the chance to win.

melinda said...

That's a hard one as I have ad many great presents and Birthdays. The most recent was my Cuttlebug which was a total surprise and gret fun to use.
Thanks!!

lostinstamps said...

I've had some great birthdays over the years, so it's hard to pick one. The best are when my DH actually remembers ;^) - gotta love him anyway!

Annelies said...

My birthday is in December, so my mother always treats me with a bustrip to a Christmasmarket in Germany. We always have a great time! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

ticketbelle said...

What a tough question! First thing that popped into my head was a little green transistor radio that my Godfather gave me for my 8th birthday. It was the COOLEST ever and I still remember the thrill of opening it. Guess I'm really dating myself saying transistor radio - remember those? 9-volt batteries and a dial for tuning??? LOL...

Sarah said...

Well, Happy Belated Birthday to you!
My favorite birthday present was when I was 16. All of my friends went to a concert in a limo! After the concert, the limo randomly drove to a parking lot where there sat a beautiful brand new car with a bow! I was soo surprised!
Thanks for the chance to win this give away!

Kerry said...

HB to you! One of my favorite birthdays was when my family threw me a surprise birthday party. Often times they actually forget it completely so the surprise party was truly a shocker.

Shona said...

WOW! I don't think any of my birthday gifts, although I've cherished them all, could measure up to yours! What a sweet hubby! I've loved all my gifts, but I guess I would have to say my camera. I'm sure I've used it WAY more than anything else! I've probably paid for that thing 10 times over with how much I've used it!

Felicia said...

Happy belated birthday! My favorite birthday present was the Kodak camera my husband gave me 3 years ago.

StayHmMom1234 said...

Well, I have never gotten my best Birthday present... I would LOVE to have a surprise party, but my husband and family are not that imaginative. My 30th has past and my 40th just passed, maybe by my 50th or else I will have to throw my own, or give hints 6 months in advance.

Tami said...

Happy Belated Bday!!

My favorite birthday was my 18th. That was a wonderful year!

chinamomxtwo said...

my bestest present EVER was just before my 40th, I adopted my daughter. Pure joy.

Shannon Roberts said...

Wowsers you are a lucky girl!! Happy Belated Birthday! I sure hope it was a great one!! I really don't ever get anything I truly want, just what other people think I do, LOL. But this year My hubby & I (since both our b-days) are in Sept we are going to Atlantis ALONE!! Leaving the 5 boys at home; we are quite excited!!

leenda said...

Your husband sounds like a jewel! What a thoughtful gift! My favorite gift was tickets to a Josh Groban concert!!

Sara said...

Happy belated Birthday! Today is my DH's B.D. My best birthday gift was from my DH two years ago. I just decided to start stamping and he went to Michael's and bought the works! Everything (and more) that I needed to get started.

charlene.herter said...

I hate to say this, but my favorite birthday presents are plain old cash. Since I discovered online shopping it is my favorite way to spend my saved up gift money. It's much better that the GPS thingy my husband bought me one year. I can't stand that lady telling me where to drive!

jayne said...

My best birthday was in 1976 the year I got married. My husband-to-be arranged with my dad to leave my present in the livingroom of our home so that I would see it when I woke up. It was a bentwood rocker. I still have the rocker and the husband -- 32 years later!

Sharon said...

I guess my favorite birthday present wasn't really a present...When I turned 40, my husband threw me a surprise party! Thanks for chance to win some blog candy!

Happy belated birthday!!!
My best birthday present was my QuinceaƱera party, it was so great, my dad gave the best birthday party I ever had. Everything was well prepared and organized, I was 15 so I didn't help much, LOL.

Thanks for the chance to win.

God bless
Giovana

Maryjo Monterosso said...

The best birthday present I received was of my first puppy, a minature poodle named Mr. Beau Jangles. That was a very long time ago and I am a cat person now but I always remember my first pet with fond memories.

maiahs_momma said...

Happy Birthday :)! Hope you had a super day, filled with lots of wonderful memories. I would have to say the best Birthday gift I received was a late present I got from my then fiance (now hubby). It was an engagement ring, that was also his Valentine's gift too :)!

Hugs,

Juanita said...

What a great birthday gift! my DH does things like that too, not that extravagant, but every year he does something that is so me. This year, after a move that was very hard on me, he had my Mom come and watch the kids and took me to the spa for some us time. Everyyear is the best gift ever from him!

Kim Etherington said...

Happy Belated! Wow, lucky you on a creative hubbie. I'd have to say my 30th as well. My hubbie and bestfriend had me wear t-shirt they hadmade that said "I am a Virgin but this is an old t-shirt". I was blindfolded and had to beat a pinata that when it broke was filled with funny/dirty gag stuff. The morning of my Bday my twingirls gave to me in bed a family ring with our gems. We have 3 amethysts in the house and me a ruby. The 33rd is coming up in 10 days and we'll be away on vacation. I look forward to just not being here for my Bday! Thanks for the chance!

Cookie said...

My best Bday present was when my husband arranged a surprise meet up with my Brothers son who I hadnt seen in about 13 years it was a very special moment he was only 12 last time I had saw him and his Dad (My bro) had died in that time I tried everything to try and find him even a people search company I finally found him and talked to him but had yet to see him in person my 40th bday was coming up and my husband called him without me knowing to plan a surprise meet up...I walked into the restaurant where he was already waiting with his girlfriend...and when I saw him my eyes teared up and I told my husband 'theres a guy over there who looks just like my brother".....It was my bros son...It was a very happy but at the same time sad since he looked so much like my brother...It will forever be a favorite bday present!

Pat S. said...

Happy birthday to you!

My favorite birthday present ever was a "over the hill" party that my stamping buddies surprised me with when I turned 50...we all had a ball :)

Our stamp club is called the Yo-Yo's (variation on Ya-ya's), and now we all have a silver yo-yo charm.

Annabelle said...

I have many great birthdays. one was when I was 15, a got a trip to Europe and visitied all over, never forgot. and my last bday, my hubby was away, so he planned a birthday surprise for me, so I wouldn't be alone, he even sent flowers, it was the best.

Harley Dee said...

Well Happy Belated Birthday!! Somehow my birthday kinda gets overlooked around here (I plan out everyone else's parties, but no one plans mine, lol) so anytime that my birthday gets remembered is a good one :D

heart said...

Best Birthday present?
A dozen roses!

Christina said...

Hi,
My favorite Birthday memory/gift was when I was 16. My parents took me to Disney World. What memories!
Thanks,
Christina

Lori said...

My best birthday present was on my 34th birthday we took my daughter to Disney World for the first time.

Cherie said...

Happy Birthday - belated! I can't remember a favorite. Any birthday spent with my kids is my idea of a great birthday. They grow up too fast! Sounds like your husband really thinks ahead and has great ideas! Thanks for the chance at some blog candy!

PatsyB said...

Love your blog!! My best birthday ever was the year my son graduated from The Citadel Military College. I was so proud and what I thought was a party for his graduation actually turned into a surprise party for me! I also got new wood floors for my house! Does it get any better??

Lisaa728 said...

Happy Belated Birthday! What a great husband you have! My favorite birthday is one that my family gave me a bunch of stamping & scrapbooking stuff! I love it when they feed my obsession!Thanks for the chance to win!

jeannen2 said...

Wow! Your husband sounds like a "keeper"!! I remember my 9th birthday best -- I got a bright red bicycle with a sparkly red banana seat! Loved it! Of course, to break it in, I went down the driveway at breakneck speed and ended up with stitches in my knees, but I still loved that bicycle!! Jeanne

Jelly Bean said...

my best Bday present was when I was 16 and I passed my Drivers test, when I got home my grandpa had bought me a brand spanking new 1976 Ford Mercury Cougar fully loaded. Whooo Hooo! were my friends jealous!

Leslie said...

I can't remember what my best birthday present was. Probably when I got my laptop for a combination birthday/christmas present.

Littleone's Scrapbook Journal said...

This year was my 30th :) I hadn't been home in several years so my present for B-day and mother's day (they are close together, sometimes the same day!) was a trip home to Florida and if you ever have seen Destin Beaches you know how much fun I had!!

sharon said...

My bets birthday was my 40th. MY husband planned a surprise party for me with all of my friends.MY husband never plans anything

Sammie said...

My favorite birthday present that I can remember getting was a gift certificate to Pier 1 last year. I had a fun time shopping with it!

Sarah said...

Let me start with HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

My favorite birthday surprise was on my 25th birthday, when he got us a 3 weeks trip to Thailand!

Can't wait till my 26th birthday, which is very soon!!!

Thanks for the generous blog candy,

Sarah from Israel.

Nancy said...

The one gift that stands out most in my mind was when I was a kid (probably about 25 years ago). Usually Mom did the birthday shopping and signed the card "Love Mom and Dad"... but this year, my Dad bought me a gift all on his own... a new ball glove. I still have that glove. He and I used to spend a lot of time together on summer evenings riding our bikes or playing catch in the yard.

Sure miss him....

ginarallo said...

My birthday often falls on Thanksgiving so I've had many great times with all my family together! That's the best gift I could have!
Thanks for the chance to win!

yvette said...

Happy Birthday
My best Birthday was the year I came home with my son after adopting him.Cant beat that gift!!!!

Dawn K. said...

I got a digital camera for my 3oth, and I haven't looked back since. I take tons of photos.

Gail S. said...

Like Ginarallo in her comment a few spaces up, I get to celebrate my B-Day on Thanksgiving!! We always get together with family and that is always so much fun....plus I get the day off of work.

Roxie said...

WEll Happy 30th. I had my 37th in May and my scrapbook friends took me For Keepsake Scrapbook Store and then to lunch. I had never been and it was soo much fun.

Pam said...

The best birthday present wasn't actually a present you could give, but rather the celebration. When I turned 30 (11 years ago - YIKES!) I double dated with another couple. We rented a limo (my first time in one!) and went to a very posh restaurant for dinner and drinks and then hit the clubs for some dancing! It was a blast! Thanks for the opportunity!

~ Pam

Heather Parks said...

I guess my best birtday present that I can remember was my digital camera from my husband!

Debbie Fisher (debbiedee) said...

Happy Birthday (a day late)! What a sweet gift from your hubby! My bd was the 6th. The sweetest gift I rec'd was 2 years ago when my boys (then 13 and 11) made a treasure hunt for me, with little goodies and a clue at each stop. The grand finale was in the deep freeze, where my oldest had made my favorite candy bar pie.

Laurie in MN said...

Happy birthday.

I don't remember any one birthday qualifying as being a favorite as much as very special.

My Uncle and Aunt were visiting and we took a sight seeing car ride along the St. Croix River, MN, when I became ill. It was a long return drive home, getting off the expressway, stopping at rest stops, on the return trip home. I kept apologizing and they were worried because I rarely got sick.

Short time later, yep, found out I was expecting my first child. Never again got sick through out the pregnancy.

Michelle said...

Can't really remember if I had a best b-day. I'm a full time student and my b-day is always during midterms so I'm always stuck studying! My best b-day would be one where i didn't have to study.

Kathy H said...

Probably a birthstone ring when I turned 16, thanks Kathy...

Eileen M said...

Belated Birthday wishes!
Probably my best birthday present was a family trip to Mt. Tremblant in Canada for my 50th. We had a great time!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Elaine M said...

My birthday is the 10th - so happy birthday to both of us!

I love getting older - every birthday brings new freedom -- life just gets better and better

Emily said...

Wow is all I can say. What a great husband to do that for your birthday. I can't necessarily remember a gift that I thought was the best, but I was born on my mom's birthday so every year (except for 1 or 2) we have celebrated together which makes all my birthdays the best!

Emily

Memmott Family said...
