Spill It Sundays: All About Birthdays

I’m linking up with Arman today for a special edition of his Spill It Sundays series – the birthday edition – dedicated to the best twerker I know, the big man himself. Happy Birthday Arman! I hope that you get down to some Juicy J and eat only sugar all day. But now let’s focus on me. 😉


1. When is your birthday
I was born on St. Patrick’s Day! It’s a pretty sweet ass day to be born, if you ask me. I talk about my most recent birthday celebrations here and here.

2. What would your ideal birthday ‘day’ look like?
Hmmm well ideally I’d want to eat a whole chocolate cake with vanilla frosting on it. That would probably make me sick, though, so I guess my perfect birthday would look something like: hot yoga class in the morning, chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, cake and baby carrots for lunch, a nice dinner out (at some trendy restaurant because I’m sooooo hip) and then out to a bar for like, one glass of good wine because my next birthday is 23 and that requires more class. If I met a Pittsburgh Penguin and he fell in love with me that day too, I wouldn’t mind. 


3. When was your most memorable birthday?
My parents threw some awesome birthdays for me. The best one was when the coordinated two of our relatives to dress up as Belle and the Beast and act like they came out of the woods across the street from their castle. I flipped out. I think I mentioned that + other cool birthday parties in this post.

4. When was your worst birthday?
Honestly? I don’t remember ever having a really terrible birthday. I’m sure I had a bad one in there somewhere, probably in high school and something stupid and dramatic happened.

5. What is the best birthday present you’ve received?
My car! My aunt is so generous and wonderful. I wouldn’t have my 1989 Toyota Camry (named Norm) without her. He’s lasted more than five years, but I’ll have to be retiring him soon. I’ll try to get a pic of him up here sometime.

6. What is the worst birthday present you’ve ever received?
I truly do appreciate every thought and gift I’ve gotten throughout my life – I’m a lucky girl. But my pet peeve for presents, I must admit, is when people buy me clothes that either 1) are completely not my style or 2) don’t fit AT ALL. I’d rather get a gift card. The thought is still behind it, in my opinion.

7. What is a health related gift on your wish list?
Bah! I don’t even know. Maybe just like a kettlebell? And a few sets of free weights. It’d make home workouts more effective.

8. What is a food related gift on your wishlist?
Mom and Dad (and Adam!) have been killin’ it with food presents as of late (see Christmas 2012 and Christmas 2013), but next on my list is a juicer (I think). I want to be able to make my own in the mornings!


9. What is your birthday cake of choice?
Chocolate with vanilla frosting!
