Give Me 5 Monday - Birthday Memories

The topic of today's list is - Give Me Five birthday memories from your life or of someone else.

Birthdays were never a big deal in my house, so I really don't have any birthday memories. I still don't think much about my birthday and sometimes don't even remember that it is my birthday until the day is about over.

Since Beth's birthday was just last week, I'll use this as an excuse to tell you what we did for her birthday. We don't really make a big deal of the kids' birthdays either, even though they think we should, but it was her 18th birthday, and that's supposed to mean something, I guess.
For Beth's birthday:
  1. Beth and new earringsWe took her (and Tim, always Tim) out to dinner at the Outback Steakhouse, because she wanted a Bloomin' Onion.
  2. We should have had the people at Outback sing 'Happy Birthday' to her, but we didn't.
  3. After dinner we went to the mall, and her dad bought her two new pairs of jeans.
  4. And he paid to get her ears pierced.
  5. That was only 4 - because we asked if she wanted to stop at Dairy Queen on the way home, but she and Tim were having some drama and she just wanted to go home.
Exciting birthday stuff, huh? For more birthday memories, visit BeccA's Buzz.


  1. I've never had a blooming onion. What's it like?

  2. Here's a link that explains the Bloomin' Onion, with a picture!

  3. I was at Outback a couple of days ago, and I wanted a bloomin' onion, but my husband didn't. So, I went without. Oh well. Tomorrow will be the one day of the year (hopefully) that I get to order what I want wherever I want! Sounds like Beth had a pretty good birthday.

  4. Sounds like a good birthday, really. :)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
