So I Say It's My Birthday!

It's my BIRTHDAY today.  I'm thirty-three.  Three is my lucky number.
Therefore, this birthday should be twice as lucky, right?
Or three times?
Thirty-three times?
I'm not great at math, but lets just say this is a very lucky birthday.
And I'm dreaming big.

First, I respectfully request 33 comments on this blog post.  More would be fine, but 33 minimum.  Not sure what to write?  Let me help.  How about "Three (or 33) things I love about Emily or Emily's Blog."
Be creative.  No rush.

Also, I'd like three different kinds of chocolate.
I'll start things off with some Hot Chocolate.  We just got home from the Sapporo Snow Festival and I'm still cold.  (Also, I need something to help me through the 33 loads of laundry I have to do today.)
Doug will have to rustle up the other two treats.

Lastly, I'd like a three hour nap.  I'm not really sure where I'll fit this in, but I have to try.  I suppose I could shoot for a 33 minute nap.  That might be more doable.   Also, reading time is an acceptable substitution for sleeping time.  But only because I'm in the middle of a good book.

Now I'm off to work on making some of my birthday dreams come true.  Next stop, my couch a mug of H.C.  You and Doug can take care of the rest!

Who could say no to this face???
Happy Birthday to ME!

*Just as I was about to push "Publish Post" there was a knock on the door.  It was my friend Tami delivering a can of Stephen's Chocolate Cinnamon Gourmet Hot Cocoa.  I KNEW it!!!  Birthday dreams really DO come true!!!!!!!

Happy birthday Em!!!!! Do something amazing today!! I'm so happy to see the rights to be "Birthday Brat" come around every year still! You deserve it (and somethings shouldn't get lost just because you're a Mom.) I wish I was in Japan and I'd make you the double chocolate cheese cake you made me the last time in were in Florida. ****Ang****

Happy 33rd birthday Emily!! I hope your day is just perfect!!!

DianeM said...

Happy Birthday Emmers!! I know that you will have the best day ever and that Doug will whip up something delicious and rich...unless he's still trying to be a health-nut, which would be ridiculous and rude on such an important day. I'd like to say that those ornaments were my gift to you but since you paid for them I should mention that I threw some hugs in that box too. Hope you got them!!

Jenn said...

Happy Birthday! You are great because:

2. You married Prince William's twin
3. Because your my cousin

I love reading your blog because:
1. You are so funny.
2. You have 4 adorable boys and we all know I love mothers of boys!
3. I love your writing style.

There you go 3 and 3 makes 33! Happy birthday!

Sure ok, I'll play your silly game. I'll list the things I like about you until I get bored. I have about 90 seconds.

1. You are pretty.

2. Your rapier whit.

3. You shop at thrift stores.

4. Your taste in music.

5. I respect you despite you being a comment whore.

6. I like your self-deprecating humor.

7. Deprecate reminds me of defecate, which makes me giggle. But I guess that has nothing to do with you.

Poop jokes=mind wandering. Time's up.

Happy Birthday Emmy-poo.
I love you so bad!

Happy Birthday Emily. I remember when your mother did a drawing of you and your 3 sisters and brother lined up at Lagoon, before you were even conceived. She drew you as the last in line with a little halo over your head. That's when we new our next child would be a girl. (By the way, we never liked Lagoon and only went there once or twice in 25 years) We mailed your Valentine's box this morning and has three different kinds of chocolate in it. Good luck getting your share with four boys who'll be there when you open it.
Love, Dad

Wow in your world over accross the ocean your birthday is over but here in California it is still your birthday and your not at 33 yet so even though late I am sure this post is still welcomed. I love your blog for so many reasons..Keeps us in touch with your adorable family which makes you not seem so far away.... I love your witty human approach to life and how cleverly you put it in print. You fun posts are so real that I find myself talking to the computer or my phone depending where I'm reading your blog .. saying... I can relate to that... I love that you can be self defacing or taking that real down to earth with out being crud or unlady like which is a skill...etc, etc,,
Happy Birthday.. Love Claudia

Happy birthday! Why settle for just one day? Have 33 of them spread throughout the year! Whenever you need a pick-me-up just have a mini-Bday. Chocolate is a great reward.

Jessi said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you get everything you wished for. (Especially the nap and chocolate.)

Happy Birthday Emily! All I have to say is that February is a great birthday month and contains birthday of some great friends and family. I love your blog! I even got my mom addicted to reading it because I would call her up and read to her some of your posts. Now she checks it more regularly than I do. I love your writing style. I seem to relate to eat of your posts. Keep them coming. And since it is past your birthday but I want you to get 33 comments, I'll encourage others to comment on this posts. Happy Birthday!

Lyana said...
