Fun Birthday FactsThis post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.
I’m not one to toot my own horn, but today is my 34th birthday! I thought I’d share a few fun birthday facts about me.
Growing up, we got to pick the meal for our birthday (or at least that’s how I remember it)! For as long as I can remember, I always picked ravioli. Chef Boyardee Ravioli is my favorite so that’s what we’d have. (I was an easy kid to please, right?) I remember a few times when mom tried to sneak in the off-brand – it’s definitely not the same!
Nowadays ravioli is a household staple, but this was definitely a treat for me when I was growing up! And even to this day I still enjoy a can of ravioli now and then. So much so that almost every year I find a can of it in my birthday bag. Take a look! Mom gave me the extra large can this year! Yummo! (Thanks for remembering mom!)
Check out this blast from the past! (Don’t you just love that shirt? Ha!) I just had to share this picture with you! I’ll never forget this cake – it’s my all-time favorite! I had such a blast making it. There were finger cookies for the wheels, bubble gum for the windows and jelly beans on top!
I don’t know what it is about birthday cake, but it’s just not a birthday without cake. Now, when I say cake that can mean all sorts of cakes – cupcakes, ice cream cake, cookie cake, etc. You just have to have a cake on your birthday! I guess it’s yet another way to celebrate that person’s special day and to help them feel special!
For as long as I can remember I’ve been in love with strawberry cake! My sweet sister even made me this yummy cake when I visited her over weekend!
Funny story: When Trent and I first married, I’m not really sure that he knew how important a birthday cake was to me. (I guess I expected him to read my mind! Ha!) One year he didn’t get me a cake; not because he didn’t care, but simply because he didn’t know the importance of one.
When he got home from work that night I waited and waited. I figured he had hidden it somewhere. Then I finally had to say something to him. Let’s just say that he felt horrible. So much so that he even bought me a half birthday cake six months later! :O) Since that time he’s never missed a birthday cake!
Okay, those are my fun birthday facts, and now I want to hear about yours! It’s your turn to share!
What are your fun birthday facts/traditions? What’s your favorite flavor of birthday cake?
