  1. What an amazing list of prizes for the treasure hunt!!!!!
    My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is a quiet dinner at home with my family with my favorite birthday meal of lasagne then ice cream cake for dessert.


  2. My favorite way to celebrate is to be with my family and friends, that is the most important thing :)

  3. I'm in agreement with the other ladies so far...a quiet dinner at home with my husband and kids is how I love to spend my birthday! And, of course, it helps if I don't have to cook the dinner! :) And that the kids are tucked in early, too! (wink, wink!)

  4. I agree with everyone, dinner with the family... and as I am single, in college with no social life... there is no wink at the end of my post (super funny by the way)

  5. Hum... a great birthday would be receiving nice presents and eating a very chocolate cake :)

    PS: What a Hamper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. I love to celebrate my birthday by being with my friends and family. Usually start out at my favorite mexican restaurant by eating and drinking margueritas. Then go out dancing and having a fun time.

  7. My birthday is the day after Christmas so it's a weird time. I'd like to have a nice dinner and night away with my husband. Or celebrate with a few of our really good friends at a nice restaurant. One or the other. How's that for decisive! LOL :-D

  8. With young children, it's just a delight to go out as a couple again and have a good natter.
    On both our birthdays we watch a film(if Daniel Craig's in it even better!), got to a nice pub for a few drinks and then on to an indian restaurant for a fabulously naughty curry.
    The evening ends with a cuddle on the sofa after the babysitter (my mum) has gone and then, well, time for bed!

  9. As it has just been my birthday I love celebrating it as many times as I can!

    Drinks with friends, dinner with my family at this amazing restaurant that we always use for birthday dinners. Getting away for a girls weekend... and I am lucky enough to be doing all of these in the next few months. Keep those birthday fires burning.

  10. Spending it with the family, dinner, cake, presents! :)

  11. My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is with a nice dinner I don't have to cook,a decadent cake and presents.

  12. My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is with a nice dinner I don't have to cook,a decadent cake and presents.

  14. Gotta confess, hate my birthdays! Not because of the getting older thing, coz that's just silly but just because everyone feels like they have to make a big fuss. I generally like a quiet dinner, preferably with my best friend...a sangria or two and some yummy lebanese/italian food. Heaven!

  15. I've always loved birthdays. Why not? Doesn't everyone want to feel extra special for at least one day?

    My favorite thing to do, now that I'm older, is to treat myself to a really nice gift. Because I seldom do that but my birthday's a good excuse.

  16. I need presents... like the Lil Dancing Guy!!!!!!

  17. I love when we had my bd, my twin brother's bd, my sister-in-law's bd and my niece's bd all together in April when we all had bd's. There was family, visiting, lunch/cakes, sometimes bingo and my niece unwrapping her presents b/c she is young she got some. A great family time.

  18. The ultimate birthday clebration for me, since this would be a milestone birthday, and I am healthy for now would be a wonderful trip to a special destination that I love and would enjoy visting.

  19. What amazing and generous prizes!

    My favorite way to celebrate my birthday is doing something relaxing with my husband and children. Well, sometimes the relaxing part is not possible with the kids, but a girl can dream lol. I like things low key now. I do like to go dancing on occassion though, so Lil Dancing Guy and I have something in common!
