  6. Happy Birthday! Hmmm...My husband claims that my engagement ring was my 19th birthday present, since he gave it to me three weeks before my birthday...but what I really wanted was an engagement ring AND a birthday present. Yep, greedy little golddigger right there. :P

  11. The Best Birthday gift ever was on my 18th birthday, my Long Distance Boyfriend (now Husband) traveled 350 miles to take me to my Senior Winter Formal and celebrate my 18th b-day. How awesome is that!

  12. Happy, happy birthday, Casey! I hope it is absolutely wonderful! I splurged two years ago and bought myself a super-nice computer for my photo editing, so that would have to be my favorite birthday present!

  13. Happiest of birthdays to you!!! :)

    As for the best gift I've received.. that's so tough. The first year that my (now) fiance and I were together, he threw a big birthday party for me and it was all New York themed. I've never been and really want to go. My living room was the skyline, my kitchen was Times Square, and the backyard was Central Park. Everything took so much time to prepare and it was basically the sweetest thing ever :)

  14. Happy Happy Happy Birthday! The best birthday gift I've received was my car when I turned 16. Omg, so cheesy I know, but it was exactly what I needed, 4 wheels to get away from my parents!

  15. happy birthday Casey! October is the best month for birthdays, don't you agree? [I say that because mine is coming up in 2 weeks!]

    my favorite recent birthday present has to be my camera - I just got it last year, but it is seriously my favorite possession on this earth. it's my baby.

  17. Happy Birthday :) And congrats on meeting your goal - that is awesome! The best birthday gift I was ever given had to be a behind the scenes tour at Sea World where I got to pet a real live penguin. I don't think I'll ever forget that birthday!

  39. The best bday gift I have ever received would probably be my first car. It took me awhile to figure out it was my mom driving up to me in a car (my new one) honking the horn all excited. But it was amazing! I hope you had a fabulous birthday too!

  41. The best birthday gift I ever received? That's hard to say, because my birthday falls just after New Years' when no one cares about celebrating anymore. I think my adult birthdays have been way better than my childhood birthdays, and the last one must have been one of the best. We just took a huge group of people downtown in Chicago and visited Wilde, a literary themed bar-restaurant, and followed up with Molly's Cupcakes and a cute like Lakeview bar. SUCH a nice night :)

  42. Congrats on hitting that milestone, and happy birthday!!

  48. The year our 1st child was born, I received a bracelet from Tiffany & Co with mine, my husbands & our daughters first initials engraved. So sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Happy Birthday! It's really hard to narrow down the best birthday gift... but I think an experience does it for me. When we were stationed in Japan I was turning 21 and I decided I wanted to climb Mt. Fuji. Well, the hike the day after my birthday was unavailable so I went like a week after my birthday. It was an awesome and amazing experience and I'm so glad I did it.

  50. I know it seems cliche but it was truly very sweet. My husband was on the east coast, me on the west coast while he was in Navy Schooling. He sent me an ipod stocked with all "our" songs, and set up his card on an itunes account for me so I could download whenever I wanted. :)

  51. Happy Birthday, chickadee! I'd have to say the best birthday gift I've received was a watch from my mom. I know a watch doesn't sound like anything to be excited about, but it was all the time and planning that my mom put into that gift having it custom made for me. It showed that she listens to the little things that I say...the things that I often think people don't hear. But leave it to my mom to hear everything...big or small. She rocks!
