LINDA CALDWELL said...

Happy, happy Birthday Kim. I hope your birthday is everything you hoped it would be and more. I found my fifties were wonderful. I sincerely wish for you a blessed day and a blessed year from deep in the heart of Texas. Thank you for a chance at such a wonderful giveaway with the most amazing thread and the most fabulous fabric. Again, Happy 50th and enjoy your day. Hugs to you, Linda

Gene Black said...

Gee every birthday is amazing when you get older because it is a true celebration. Best ever? I think the year I turned 40 was pretty amazing. I had to work that day, I wasn't going to be in the office, but I stopped by early to get something. There were black balloons and that type thing at my desk.
I laughed and thought - YES! I made it this far and I have a lot of life left in me. Some friends also had a small party for me the following weekend. I got my first Kindle (because I AM a reader.) It was a delight.

Sharon Tucker said...

Enjoy your day and your 50th year!!!

Happy happy birthday! For my 34 bday I had nothing planned but I had so many little surprises from friends. It is the little things!

Mrs Quinn said...

This year's birthday was pretty awesome... I had a yummy breakfast, planted, sewed, and had a yummy dinner. Simple but perfect

fancynancy said...

Happy special birthday! I just had a big 0 birthday (but a bit bigger than yours) and my friends made it extra special for me. I had two weeks of celebrations, including a surprise morning tea with all my favourite former colleagues, a fabulous dinner with my family (with lots of wine and laughter), and the final celebrations was lunch in Melbourne's Tramcar restaurant with my oldest friend (we've know each other for 56 years!). And in between the celebrations I managed to do lots of quilting. Life is good.

Amy Paulson said...

It was my 39th birthday and my sweet hubby posted huge banners, posters all over town wishing me a happy 40th birthday. The joke was on both of us. He really thought it was my 40th,but it was my 39th. I kept telling everyone I wasn't 40 yet. 😎 No one believed me. πŸŽ‚
Happy 50th birthday and what an awesome giveaway!

Shelly sandy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Aren't we supposed to be giving YOU presents?!?!?! 50 isn't too bad, I reached it almost 3 years ago and it sure beats the alternative!

For my 30th birthday, my parents came to mind the children and my husband and I flew to London for 3 days of museums, parks, concert, musical, restaurants, shopping... It was amazing!

Dee Hutchinson said...

Happy birtjday. Thanks for this awesome giveaway

tpott said...

My favorite birthday memory is a yellow cake with dark chocolate frosting that my mother made in the shap of a seven for my 7th birthday.
I guess at the time 44yrs ago I though it was so special because it wasn't your basic round cake. I still remember my all of us including my grandparents around the kitchen table and me making a wish and blowing out my candles. I hope you have a wonderful 50th birthday, like a fine wine I think we get better with age. ;-> Toni Anne

Happiest of birthdays!
My favorite birthdays were all in college. They were always filled with lots of friends, good food, staying up too late, and launching until it hurts.

Kitty said...

Fifty and fabulous!! There is seriously no way you're 50, though... I hope you have the best, most fabulously celebratory day ever! Coffee, sewing, wine, good friends, CAKE!! You know, all those!!

Laura said...

Happy birthday! My favorite memory is of my 25th. My husband and I had just moved into our first house, and we had a big party. It was great!

My little sister and I have birthdays that are 10 days apart. I remember the one birthday party that we had together. Nothing big, just the kids in the neighborhood. Still have pictures to remember by and that was over 55 years ago. Birthday parties have come a long way!

Judy T said...

Happy birthday! My 50th was celebrated in the framework of our house under construction with rain coming in through the unfinished roof!

Happy 50th! It's a milestone birthday but it's also just a number. Enjoy your day!

Mama Mel said...

Happy, Happy Birthday! �� My best birthday ever was when I turned 30. I had just had my first baby, I had a fun 80s themed party, and my mom gave me my first sewing machine, which would change my life forever! ❤

Happy Birthday, Gorgeous! My favorite birthday was my 40th, which was when we were living on Oahu, and my sweet husband and daughter conspired to get me my very first ever Louis Vuitton bag and matching wallet. Love that I've taught my daughter the importance of a matching wallet. πŸ˜‰

Miss Alissa said...

Happy, happy birthday! What a fun way to celebrate quite a birthday! I pray that the next 50 are filled with love, laughter and lots of quilting :D

Bluefigquilts said...

Happy Birthday! I also turned 50 this year! YAY US! My favorite birthday memory is my 9th birthday. I received my first two wheeler and we had a party at an amusement park.

Jennifer said...

Happy Birthday! One of my favorite birthday memories is when I received my Bernina. It was my 21st birthday(yes, what a dork, I should have been bar hopping)and I actually cried, I was so happy! That will have been 40 years ago this Thursday and, yes, I am still using that same Bernina😍

quiltingtn said...

My best birthday so far, was this year. My husband bought me a Singer Featherweight. I had been wanting one for 12 years. I always look forward to you posts on FB and Pintrest. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and many more to come.

Tine said...

My favorite birthday was getting to see Harry Connick Jr in a small theater in Paris.

PK Sews said...

Happy birthday! My best birthday ever happened to be my 50th! My daughters surprised me with a surprise party of family and friends - my one and only surprise party. Thanks for the great giveaway. You sure know how to party!

Ms.Lo said...

How generous to give presents on your own birthday! I recently turned 50 as well. Life is good. ❤️

Ellen Giglia said...

Happy Birthday! Best birthday memory? I threw myself a 50th Birthday Party. Family came in from out of town to celebrate with my friends. We all had a great time. What could be better than to share laughter with those you love.

tammik said...

Happy Birthday! We find new 'fun' as we age. I hit 60 on my next birthday, finding a new freedom in life! Even in my quilting, using brighter colors and different patterns. Enjoy!

Judy H said...

Congratulations! It only gets better.

Robin said...

I'm turning 50 in October. My favorite birthday memory is my 16th birthday, the last "normal" one of my youth before my mom had a stroke and never lived at home again. I invited my cheerleading squad over for supper (it was game night) and mom made lasagne and the requisite chocolate layer birthday cake. I miss her so much!

Happy birthday!!!

Dorian said...

Happy 50th!!!! I hope you have a fantastic day. Thank you for the awesome giveaway. My birthday falls at the end of June, I loved that as a kid because in some places I lived, that meant the fair was around. One bday, my family went to the fair to celebrate! My Dad told my 3 sisters that I got to choose the first ride everyone went on. I chose the farris wheel, and my sisters HATED that choice!! LOL. Loved it!

Corinnea said...

Happy birthday! I loved turning 50! Wishing you a wonderful year to come.

Melissa said...

Wishing you the happiest of birthdays! A favorite memory of mine was from when I was young and my mom would make angel food cake with pink icing. I would eat a little of the cake but mainly the icing because I don't like angel food cake. It wasn't until I was in my forties that I told her. She laugged.

Annette said...

You certainly don't appear like you are 50!!! My favorite birthday was when my husband surprised me with a day with him. He had called my boss and arranged a day off. I still went to work and he had put a card on my desk to come out to the parking lot. We went for breakfast, golfed, had lunch and just enjoyed a beautiful day without kids.

QuiltingRage said...

When I was 19 all of my friends threw me a surprise party. It was awesome because I was bummed out I had to work that day and I had no clue anyone had anything planned. I never really do anything for my birthday so that's the best so far.

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Happy Happy 50th Birthday! Wishing you a Blessed Day and Year ;-D. I remember my 18th birthday, I got a 10 speed bike that year.

Awesome and Generous giveaway! Thanks for a chance to win.

Happy birthday! Hope you have a great day!
I think my best birthday was when I turned 30! I got married and my first child was christened!

GO STARS! said...

My favorite birthday memory is having a skating party with my sister. Our birthdays are 7 days apart and we're the same age for that week - I was almost her first birthday present. We were in elementary school and I don't remember which year. Both of us are summer birthdays and that was our one and only party. Yay for July and August birthdays. Mine is July 29th. Have a wonderful birthday - 50 is great!

Alex Fox said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you have a fabulous celebration. When I was young, maybe 5 or 6, my Mum made me a birthday cake in the shape of a bed, with two little mice snuggled under a quilt with their pairs of slippers at the foot of the bed. It was so detailed and beautiful and everything was made with marzipan icing. Unfortunately, I ate rather too much marzipan and ended up being rather ill...but I loved that cake and I've always remembered it!

Btrflywmn said...

My favorite memory is camping when I was a kid for my 10th birthday :) Thanks for the chance to win this awesome prize pack. Happy Birthday!

PersimonDreams said...

First - I can't believe my double (Kim/Kim) is 50! Happy Happy HAPPY Birthday! I personally love all my birthdays - when I turned 30 I purchased a fabulous crown of twigs and flowers which I know wear every year - even to the grocery store and gym! My favorite is when folks compliment my crown like I would just be wearing it on any normal day to the gym :) I had a big party for my 30th and we played minute to win games, had a nacho bar, and all my friends over! It was perfect! I hope you have a fabulous day!

Lisa Lisa said...

Happy birthday, Kim!! 50 is exciting! My favorite birthday memory is from my 40th birthday. I threw myself a party in our backyard, invited all my friends and their families to swim in our pool, with a cotton candy machine, bubblegum, Skittles, Starbursts, and boiled peanuts! And my sister got on a plane for the very first time to be there!

Dawn said...

I don't have any one birthday that stands out, but I loved when my kids were little and made me gifts and cards!

Crossing the Delebear said...

What a great way to celebrate!
I think the one memory that sticks out was my 10th, my parents were finally able to afford riding lessons (a big deal especially for us.) Years later I'm still riding and my parents don't seem to regret that gift (now at least, I'm sure when they were driving me to the barn in the cold and paying for the lessons they might have!)

WalkingWithFeathers said...

Favorite birthday memory was going up to Paducah with my best friend and taking in the museum for the first time!

Karen W. said...

My 50th is this year too - in October. What a great way to celebrate.

My favorite memory is of my sister and I making my birthday cake for my 13th birthday. We used peanuts to write out 13. It was simple but was the first cake I ever decorated and I was so excited.

Pedal Sew Lightly said...

I rode my first, and only, century on my 50th birthday.

Polina Lisitcyna said...

Happy birthday!
My favorite birthday memory was going to Sintra, Portugal in January - it was incredibly beautiful and so warm! Normally I'm very cold on my birthday because I live in Russia))

Jennifer said...

One of my favorite birthday memories is when I was meeting my (not yet) husband's parents. It was Thanksgiving (my birthday is November 28), my 19th birthday, & they have the tradition of making whatever the birthday person wants for supper. I chose corned beef & cabbage, which his mother had never made before. We had a great time, though!
Happy birthday, Kim!

Pam Clark said...

Happy Birthday!!!! Welcome to the 50's club!!!! What an assessment giveaway, thanks for the chance to win!!! My favorite bday memories were my daughters. She always loved getting the cake that was her age number. The fancier the better too!!!

Ella said...

I had my 16 the in Russia. I got surprised with a jam cake covered with flowers. My 40th was also glorious. My husband planned all these kid activities for me to not feel old. We played mini golf, which I love.

Anne Simonot said...

50 isn't so bad! In fact, 50 is the new 40! annesimonot@sasktel.net

Anna-Marie said...

My best birthday memories involve lovely people throwing surprise parties for me. It's happened twice, once by a lovely group of university friends and once by a friend who much later went on to become my husband. The second time was all the more special because I was in a new town, had not long started a new job and didn't know many people. Somehow my university friends had all been contacted and came along; I genuinely had no idea and spent most of the party shell shocked! Happy 50th! I hope you get thoroughly spoilt and thank you so much for the very generous giveaway.

Sue said...

My favourite memory is actually for my husbands 60th birthday last year. I organised a picnic where everyone bought their own and I provided cake for dessert. When asked what to buy him I gave them the answer that Lego was the standard answer and if they would like to contribute to said Lego then put some cash in a birthday card. When Steve started to open the cards he was surprised to find money in many of them,I had to explain what was going on as he had never seen any of the communications. He now is the proud owner of 4 Creator Lego 2000-3000 piece set including the new brick bank. Can't wait to see what I get for my 60th in October. Happy 50th birthday

Tiffany said...

Wow. Happy birthday! You definitely don't seem 50 to me! I still remember my 8th birthday party. My mom let me invite EVERYONE in my class and so many of my friends came. We had a water party in my grandparents huge backyard. I remember thinking no age could possibly be better than 8. I'm 30 now and thinking it would be fabulous to be 8 again. 😊

pennylanequilts said...

Happy 50th! On my 50th, friends stationed flamingos with Burma shave signs the length of the driveway .🎈

Happy happy birthday!!! my favourite birthday was the one when my sister hid under a table and jumped out to surprise me!! Just after I said how sad I was she wasn't there too :)

Jen Hinwood said...

HaPpY BiRtHdAy to you! I am a couple of weeks away from turning 60 and am very excited. 60 is even better than 50 because you get all sorts of senior discounts! Favorite memory? I was with my husband in Pemba, Mozambique and he organized a special dinner for us. There was a small table set out by the pool at the edge of the Indian Ocean just for us. Walking out there I felt like I was on an episode of The Bachelorette! It was an amazing dinner complete with champagne and cake - the only cake I ever saw in that part of Africa! jens.scrap.heap@gmail.com

Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl said...

Happiest of birthday's to you, Kim! My most favorite birthday memory? A few years ago my husband and I bought a roof top tent to put on our Jeep, but it was too heavy for the 2 of us to lift and put in place on our own. I really wanted to go camping in it for my birthday, so a few good friends from work came over and helped us get it installed the first time. That definitely warmed my heart. :)

Renee said...

I Can't think of any particularly exciting birthdays past, but I'm super excited for this year's birthday because my cousin Yvonne and I are renting a condo on the beach and sewing for a week!

Melody Lutz said...

Being 56, I am going waaaay back: I turned 12, just had a new 1 month old brother, and Mom and dad said YES to a 6 girl slumber party!!!! Nearing 50 was hard-being there is a BLAST, Enjoy!

My mom had recently run into my best friend from when I was 13, so she was there also. πŸ‘­ We hadn't seen each other for many years so that was so much fun!!! She died in a freak accident 1year later. I cherish that memory of her.

Best birthday ever was definitely 50! Enjoy!

Have a fabulous day!!!!

Chiska said...

Happy Birthday! I love that you made 50 with 25 spools of thread! My favorite memory is pretty simple. I was dating my husband and he'd sent me a package with a lichen covered rock in it. He told me about his hike to find it and I think it's still my very favorite thing he's ever given me. My mom set up a pretty breakfast for me and the package was sitting on my chair. It's been a long time ago, but it's till my favorite.

Nettie said...

First, wishing you a FABULOUS BIRTHDAY! My favorite birthday memory was when I was a kid and we had a family reunion in Yosemite Park, CA. It was back in the day when there was firefalls, fireworks that are shot at the top of the waterfalls. We all had cabins and tents and food everywhere. It was outstanding and it was my birthday on top of all that.

PS: I love, love, love Aurifil thread, use it all the time.

Shauna said...

My favorite birthday memory was when I was about 13 and I got the coolest outfit, coca-cola pants and hat with a matching red shirt. I thought I was the bomb wearing those.

Debbie said...

Just being with family is the best birthdays. Since my husband passed almost 5 years ago my birthdays have been lonely. Happy birthday to you!

One of my favorite birthday memories is a childhood memory. We were a whole bunch of kids and we played all day long. Nothing special perhaps but we kids sure had a great time:-)

50 is the new 30! Congratulations and have a fab birthday

Mandi Broderick said...

Happy birthday! My favorite birthday was when I turned eighteen. I was a freshman in college and had just lost my grandma. The weekend after her funeral my boyfriend at the time came and got me from the piano and said he was taking me out for a bday dinner. When I got there, I was surprised by a table of friends and once I sat down, I was dowsed in silly string. My dad had made it up the mountain saying he hadn't missed a birthday yet and wasn't going to start then :)
Hope you have a great day with awesome memories!

Peggy Wagner said...

Happy Birthday!! This year will be my 50th as well. Enjoy your day!! Thanks for the chance for this awesome giveaway!

jbspaulding said...

I actually have 2 favorite birthday memories....I was born on a saints feast day and as a young girl in Catholic school, we always went to mass on my birthday. Was very disappointed to find I was not the cause of the celebration! When I was older and living on my own, my mom would make my favorite dinner and bring it by for our evening meal. I would get home from work and whatever kids activities going on, and we would sit down to a delicious dinner that I didn't have to make! My mom was a wonderful cook...just one of the many things I miss and love about her.

I grew up with two families, one living in Northern Cal, one in Southern Cal, and one of my best birthday memories is the year I flew from visiting N. Cal to Southern Cal--having been feted and loved and surrounded by nearly every special person in my life on the same day.

JANET said...

My 18th birthday! I graduated high school that day, thought I had the world by the tail. lol lol lol

Judi Duncan said...

My 49th birthday I got my first Corvette! It was an older model, metallic aqua blue with fiberglass roof...she was a beauty and I named her Chrissy....best birthday ever!

Kathy E. said...

Happy Birthday to you, you young thang! I was 50 a few years ago and it was a blast! We have a tradition amongst my friends to hang bras in the yard on decade birthdays, so that year it was my turn to get the "support"! Later that night, we went out and celebrated with Mexican food and the best margaritas in town. Enjoy your day, whatever you do!

Mindy said...

I've had a few fabulous birthdays (today being one of them so far). One of my most memorable was when my "friend" from Canada came to visit me, and he made me dinner, and we went to the beach and had a fabulous few days together. He is now my husband. More recently, my daughter was born five days after my 29th birthday, so the past few years we have done a backyard BBQ to celebrate both of our birthdays (last year she was 3, and I turned three two!).

Happy birthday to both you and me!

Fifty!! Go 50, it is the new 30 or something ;) I hope you have another 50 birthdays!. Love those colors as well, plus fabric and cards?! I think it is my birthday ;)

Johanna Lovering said...

My birthday is when school starts each year so I really don't remember a special birthday on my birthday. Usually celebrating before or after the actual day.

Pam McDonald said...

Best Birthday memory...

I was 21 and it was the first time I'd ever had fried ice cream!

Linda Stroecker said...

Happy Birthday! May you have many more. No favorite birthday memories probably because my birthday is in the first part of January. Everyone seems to be broke, partied out and still trying to keep to their resolutions. Finally I decided to celebrate on my own. Now I treat myself to after Christmas sales and usually a trip. And I celebrate the entire month.

Thanks for the fab giveaway.

teachpany said...

Happy Birthday. I got tickets to see 42nd Street on Broadway for my birthday, and the show was a month later. It was fun to keep celebrating for the whole month, including dinner before the show. Hope you're having a fun day, and thanks for the give-away.

Leslie at the Sugarhouse said...

We are all celebrating with you, one big giveaway party!
My best birthday was my 31st & an expected mommy carrying my first born after many years of waiting, now he is 24 years old!
Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

Happy 50th! I think my favorite birthday memory is still from when I was about 10. I have a summer birthday so I didn't usually have a school party. That year my mom totally surprised me with a party and I had no idea it was coming!

Lesley said...

In college my boyfriend, now husband, threw surprise parties for me every year. Yes, I was always surprised!

Happy Birthday Kim!!! One special memory is when my Greek (now) husband called from the train station in my town in Finland. I had no idea that he's coming! Thank you for a fantastic give away! x Teje

How nice of you to share YOUR birthday with us! Thank you, and happy birthday. I'm wondering if you've noticed yet that time seems to be rushing past faster. That's a symptom of growing older! 😬

Happy Birthday! My favorite memory was last year when my oldest daughter and her two daughters were able to spend my birthday with me. My birthday is Thursday, the 28th and I will be 57, so this would make a great birthday present. (Hint, hint.) πŸŽ‚πŸ¨

Happy birthday! I turned 50 a couple of years ago, and it was a fun birthday, but the one I remember best was when I was 8 or 9. We always had homemade cakes for our birthdays, never the "fancy" bakery cakes. At the end of the school year, they had a fair and at the cake walk, I won a "fancy" cake. We took it home, wrapped the box in plastic wrap and put it in the deep freezer until my birthday. The cake was awesome and still pretty even after being frozen for a month. That was one of the best memories I have of a special birthday!

Happy Birthday! Thanks for sharing your special day with us. A favorite birthday memory is a trip to the zoo with my husband and some friends. The penguins were dancing with our shadows.

Happy Day! My favorite birthday was when a friend attempted to surprise me, gathering all sorts of friends at my favorite restaurant when I expected just her. Except i locked myself out of my house so was delayed, and called the restaurant to warn her i was running late - and the waiter said he would tell "everyone at your party"!!! It did not matter to me, it was a wonderful gathering of very lovely people. But it still makes me giggle!

I remember my Nana and Papa being at every single birthday of mine growing up. They were the best! And they always gave the siblings a little gift to open so it was not just the birthday kid.

Two years ago, I was on a cruise with my sister on my birthday. We arranged it so we were in Grand Cayman on my special day and it sure was extra special because not only did we swim with stingrays but we also swam with dolphins! That's one birthday I won't forget!

What a generous giveaway! My family had a tradition where everyone would come into the birthday child's room singing happy birthday, throwing the presents on the bed to be opened. We loved it. Didn't have to wait until evening to open the gifts!

Denise in PA said...

Lee Ann L. said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday is when I have a party! I love get togethers and cake; but, I can do without presents. I haven't had a party in years as my folks are gone and no one in my family seems to like parties these days.

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday! I celebrated my birthday on a Singapore Airlines plane once. I was given a gift, a card from the pilot, champagne and cake. I also got to go up to the cockpit and saw an amazing sunset as we left the Australian coast. Gorgeous!!!

BJM said...

What a way to celebrate!

My parents surprised me with a birthday party at school. It was nice.

Happy birthday!! My best birthday memory was a huge cake for my 10th, topped with icing sugar which flew everywhere when I blew! It was fun, and the whole family was white faced

grace said...

I think my favourite was when we went to disneyland in hong kong on my birthday :)

Kim said...

Woohoo, happy 50th! My favourite birthday memory would be as a kid, sitting down with my mum weeks in advance to seriously consider what birthday cake I'd like that year. Silly gesture really, because I always wanted the most chocolatey one possible :)

Tamie said...

Happy Birthday! I got engaged on my 21st birthday. We are still married- 32 years later.

Lynn said...

Most recent favorite memory: cake for breakfast with my grandson!

Paige said...

For my 50th, everyone at my office decorated it with lots of black balloons and such. It was special! I was thinking the same thing, no way you are 50! Happy Birthday!

Janet said...

The best birthday party I ever had was when I turned 9!! My friends and family had a blast with one game we invented... Spinning around in a giant stainless steel bowl!!

april dawn said...

My most memorable birthday was my 40th when I found out I was unexpectedly pregnant with my 3 child. My youngest are 12 years and one day apart.

Kris said...

This year my husband took off of work and we drove 4 hours to go to a store I wanted and then we got back in the car to go to the Missouri Star Quilt Co. He did not feel well but he still powered through the shops and I bought what I came for and it was a super nice change of pace.

Vicki H said...

Happy Birthday!! My favorite birthday will be on Aug 8 when I turn 60 and my family will be gathered.

Cathy Calloway said...

Mary said...

Happy birthday! I can't actually think of a special birthday memory. We never made a big deal over birthdays in my family. We had some cake, blew out candles, no big deal.

Jamie said...

My favorite birthday memory has to be of the year my husband (then-boyfriend) made use his great-grandma's recipe to make me a pound cake. This became a theme as the next year he made me a cake in the shape of books. (A friend baked the cakes and he did the frosting/decorating.)

My best birthday was this year. A group of friends went with me to a show and I got to spend time with my brother and a friend who really got along well. It was low key and fun!

Kirsten said...

Happy birthday Kim!!! My favourite birthday memory was when my partner took me out for my 24th birthday and proposed whilst we were at dinner. We both turn 50 next year and already planning a trip overseas to celebrate our birthdays together.

Gwen Wehner said...

I'm only 55, so...maybe I haven't had my best-ever birthday yet!!

J. Partyka said...

Just had my 60th on Saturday. Love the thread and all the beautiful fabric.Quilting is definitely my favorite way to relax. My favorite birthday memory was sitting by St Clair river reading a book and watching the boats and barges going by and eating dinner over looking the river. Hope your 50th is your best birthday yet.

Melissa said...

Happy Birthday! What a fun way to celebrate!

Mary C said...

As we grew up, every birthday meant no chores (or dishes) for the day. Birthday highlight was choosing one friend to spend the night. We were able to choose the flavor of birthday cake. Those were the good ole days! Happy Birthday!

Happy 50th! Fifty is wonderful, stupendous, amazing and you will never be this number again! Enjoy it to the utmost! All the best! Margo

Teresa Stanulis said...

Happy 50th birthday!! My favorite birthday memory is when I turned 30 and was pregnant with our first child. I thought my husband was taking me out to dinner, but we headed to the airport and went on a long weekend trip to San Antonio! He had packed everything for both of us, had the airline tickets and a hotel on the Riverwalk booked. It was amazing!!

I had my 20th birthday at a French summer camp where I was working. My job didn't require me to speak French but the counselors did. For my birthday, during supper I sat in the front of the room and they all sang me "Happy Birthday" in French. They also had made me a cake. That was a fun birthday because it was different. This year (in a few days!) I will be celebrating my 23rd birthday. I am looking forward to that too, because I am having a few friends over for a Jane Austen themed party. Happy Birthday to you!!

Becky Lee said...

Hmm, my favorite birthday would have to be my 30th. I had just moved several hours away,and was really missing all my friends and family. My birthday was on a Sunday, so my church family, had a birthday cake, and 30 gifts, plus sang Happy birthday,right after church.I felt so tremendously loved!!

Chriss said...

Each birthday is precious! Happy Birthday to you! Hope your 50th is wonderful!

My favorite Birthday memory was my 40th. My coworker planned a big event for the evening and decorated my desk and gave me a birthday crown. We had the most delicious cake. After work the rest of my coworkers came to a great feast and fun.

SewSealy said...

Happy Birthday Kim! Hope your 50th year is filled with joy!

My favorite birthday memory is when my husband planned the day and took me to a NEW quilt shop that I wasn't aware of. He found it all by himself and planned the day to spend there with me. He sat at their tables and told me to go wild and have fun shopping. Now that is the BEST birthday! Great hubby :)

Mihaela said...

Happy birthday, enjoy your day! My best birthday memory is when I was 7 or 8, I was offered a guitar. There was hard times for my parents' ears but Heaven for me!! I still have it, and play sometimes.

Congratulations with your birthday! So very exciting! And what a great giveaway! You really went above and beyond! Thanks so much.

I have two great memories: the first being a Barbie-cake (I must have been around six) and the second is when I got to celebrate my birthday in Canada being on a boat surrounded with whales :):):). It was such a beautiful sight!
