I've mentioned before that my best birthday gifts back in 2001 were when my friends wrote me letters about how fabulous I am. (Or, at least in my mind, that's what I read.)
Well, last April, I discovered something magical that happened in one of my favorite Kindergartener's rooms. For my first trip out post-surgery, my gal pal took me with her to her daughter's school party. There, a magical Kindergarten teacher (who now is in my Book Club! woot for Book Club!) celebrated each child's birthday by having everyone in the class draw a picture and write a blurb about what they would give the birthday child if they could give them anything. Said-teacher put all of the birthday "wishes" together in a book to give to the child. Brilliant!!
Recently, one of my blogger pals invited me to her Virtual Birthday Party. If I accepted the invitation (which y'all know I did), I had to tell her what guest I was bringing with me and what gift I was giving her. All virtually. Now, she is cooler than I am and is going to Photoshop all of her guests having a kickin' time at her party. Again... brilliant.
So I'm going to jump on the Fake Party/Gift Bandwagon. Comment below and tell me a.What you'd love to give me, b.Who you are bringing with you, and c.What fabulous thing the 2 of us are going to do together in my next year of life. I will, as a result, a.Not write you a thank you note but b.Write a super blog post about all of my attendees to my Fake-Party, what gift I received, and what super plans I have with all of you for the next year.
I'm giddy just thinking about it. This is going to be rawesome.
(Please RSVP for my Fake Party by December 7. A day that will live in infamy.)
