Happy Saturday! So I realized with all the madness around me going out of town and getting home/playing catch up, I never told yall what I ended up doing on my actual birthday 2 weeks ago!
My plane from New Orleans left at 7:30, so my sweet hubby dropped me off early in the morning for my week in Florida. When I landed, Jen had already arrived, and I met her down at Disney’s Magical Express where we hopped on a bus and headed to the Boardwalk Inn.
We checked in and our rooms weren’t ready, so we walked to Beaches and Cream to eat lunch, and I got a birthday balloon!
I felt like a 5 year old, but that’s ok. After lunch we headed back to the resort and my room was ready, and in it was a special surprise from Jen!
She knows me so well. She even got my favorite flavors.
It was SO delicious. She had another surprise for me, we were going to the spa at the Grand Floridian to get pedicures! I honestly haven’t had a pedicure since high school, so it was a real treat.
We ended up in a downpour walking to the bus stop, but that’s ok, it was my birthday and I wasn’t going to let anything ruin it. We got all cleaned up and dried off then headed to dinner at the Flying Fish. Jen had never been there, so I thought it would be fun.
We had a nice time, and were even given free champagne and a free dessert (peach crème brulee) for a birthday treat. The waitress even put a candle on it, so sweet.
We were pretty exhausted from all the traveling and the fun, but it was a great day and the only time I have ever been in Disney for my actual birthday!
QOTD: Have you ever been away from home on your birthday?

I usually end up at Disney’s Fort Wilderness on my birthday! Over ten years running now – it’s my favorite place 🙂 Also smack dab in the middle of the Food and Wine Festival which makes for an extra fun time!
Love food and wine fest!
Sounds like you had a good time ( and a great friend)!
Only one time I was able to celebrate my actual birthday day on a vacation ( we were on a cruise). My Birthday is in the beginning of June, so we are always still in school at the time and it’s difficult to take time off!
Awesome birthday! I actually have a new tradition and run Ragnar Cape Cod on my birthday – best way to spend a birthday!!

Sounds like an amazing birthday!!! I want to go to Disney World for my next one!!! 😉
My birthday’s in late January so I’ve always been in school or at work 🙁 I can’t help but look at the Tink half in 2015 as a way to celebrate turning 30.
