It’s March, aka the month of my birth! Oh yes my friends, I am one of those lunatics who loves celebrating their birthday. And I’m very good at it. Let me show you what I mean (and feel free to take note of anything for yourself, wink wink nudge nudge).
The celebrations generally being a full month in advance, when I start treating myself to things I want. There’s a gift with purchase for a skincare line I like? Getting it! A book releases that I’m excited for? Buying it! And it only intensifies as I get closer to my birthday.
I always book my birthday off from work, and generally add an extra day or two as well to turn it into a long weekend. Why? Because I’m sorry, but I can’t be bothered to care about something as dumb as work on my birthday! I will, however, bring treats the day before so we can all properly celebrate how much better their lives are with me in it.
Birthday celebrations are not limited to a single day but are spread out over three or four days. I should probably just stop calling it my birthday and call it my birthweekend or something, but nah. Why do I do this? It takes the precious off making a single day super amazing. Instead, I pencil in one or two lovely things a day all weekend.
I always book a massage and/or a spa treatment. I’ll see a movie if there’s something I’m excited about that’s out and my husband and I will eat out a lot. No treat is forbidden. When it comes to birthdays, we fully embrace the parks and rec “treat yo self” mentality.
Is it fabulous? Yes. Do I always have a great birthday? Yes. Because I’m in charge. And if you take away anything from my birthday extravaganza lifestyle, I hope it’s this: don’t put it on other people to make sure your birthday is amazing. After all, who knows how to make you happy better than you?
Treat yo self! Treat. Yo. Self.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, the birthday girl desires freshly baked peanut butter cookies and you better believe I’m getting that Queen what she wants. (It’s me. I’m the queen.)
