***************************************************************************
1. How many candles will go on your next birthday cake?
Weelllll, I tell everyone I'm 30....again. But honestly, there will be 33 candles on my cake. AND I'M NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT!
2. Where were you born?
.....in a the backseat of a car.....in the parking lot of a liquor store (Shopper City Liquor to be exact).....in Mitchell, SD
3. Hey, Baby… what’s your sign?
I am a Pisces- we are a sensitive lot.
4. If you could get a $100 giftcard to the store of your choice, which store would you choose?
I think I would go to Kohl's. I love their clothing, they are always having a good sale, and they let you use a discount ON TOP of the sale price. More for my money!!!
5. And what would you buy with that $100?
Boots. Boots. Boots. Gotta love a great pair (pairs!) of boots.
6. Do you have a party for your birthday? Details!
No- but in our defense, there are 6 of us in our little family. SO we usually make spaghetti and garlic bread (because it is everyone's favorite), then we have a special BD cake- w/ candles ablaze, and then we do gifts (my hubby SPOILS me!)
7. What’s the best birthday you’ve ever had?
I honestly think it was the bd when my hubby was in Iraq. My oldest (5 at the time) wanted to get mommy a cake. He picked out a camouflage-frosted one and purple candles. We lit it up and he sang to me- it was super late at night, but we sat down and ate cake together. He was sooo happy. And to top it off, my hubby found a phone and quickly called on my birthday to say "love you". This was a big deal because he was in Iraq in 2003- when the war just started. We communicated mainly through letters....which had a 3-4 week turn around. And phone time was few and faaaaar between. To say the least, it was very, very special!

I love the story of your favorite birthday! So sweet the your son picked out your cake, and I love that your husband was able to call you!

And I bet you love saying that you were born in the parking lot of a liquor store!
