Happy Birthday to Me – My Three Year Plan

Happy Birthday

It’s my Birthday!  I never used to really enjoy celebrating my birthday.  I would wait for someone else to make plans to celebrate me, and it wouldn’t turn out the way I liked or I would worry that everyone else was having a good time blah blah blah.  These last few years I am focusing more on ME.  And because of that I am no longer waiting for others to celebrate me, I take the initiative and celebrate myself.

This year I have spent the weekend in Vegas with 2 of my sisters.  Just being sisters, just relaxing, just having fun. (full disclosure, I am writing this more than a week before it will post)  I will be having a lovely dinner with family and extended family at the restaurnt of MY choosing.  And if everyone else doesn’t like it or doesn’t enjoy their meal, I honestly don’t care.  It is my birthday, I know I will enjoy my meal.  I’m even making my own cake.  That way I know it will be one I like.

In this directive I am planning out my future birthdays as well.  Specifically the big 5-0.  That isn’t as far off as it used to be.

My plan is this.  At some point in that year (2018 to be a little exact), I will be spending at least two weeks at DisneyWorld.  Anyone that wishes to join me for any or all parts of that two weeks are welcomed graciously.  I will share my hotel room with immediate family members (and select others) but all other expenses are your own.  I have started a small savings account to prepare myself for this event and if you plan on joining me I suggest you do the same.  I don’t think this will be a “summer” event as I hate Florida in the summer and I abhor huge crowds, I am thinking more along the lines of March or April.

I’m a little excited already.
