23 birthday wishes

Guess what day it is… Go ahead… Guess… It’s HUMP DAY! And, it also happens to be my birthday. Twenty-three years ago my parents welcomed their first and favorite child into the world {let’s see which of my brothers reads my blog - I bet zero}. And, you know what, these 23 years have been pretty great if you ask me.

If you didn’t get me a gift - don’t worry - I didn’t really give you any notice. Here’s 23 things you can “gift” me right now:

  1. Leave me a birthday comment!
  2. Send donations to Mrs. Fish’s classroom.
  3. Buy coffee for the person behind you in line.
  4. Bake goodies for your friends.
  5. Follow my blog on Bloglovin’.
  6. Call your mom or dad just to chat.
  7. Leave a gift card for the mailman.
  8. Smile and say hi to every person you come across.
  9. Like my page on Facebook.
  10. Compliment a coworker - and mean it.
  11. Donate blood.
  12. Invite a new friend over for dinner.
  13. Follow me on Twitter.
  14. Visit a nursing home.
  15. Volunteer to babysit for a family (for free).
  16. Leave your waiter/waitress a kind note.
  17. Send me a card with justwink.
  18. Send someone flowers.
  19. Have a dance party (just ‘cause).
  20. Pick up someone else’s trash.
  21. Add me to your circles on Google+.
  22. Write a letter to a long distance friend.
  23. Treat yourself to something special today!

And, yes, there are a few shameless plugs mixed in there, but - hey! - it’s my birthday! I can have a few selfish wishes, right?

Hope you’re having as great of a day as me - I get chocolate for the first time in 30 days!

Best Wishes,
