Happy Birthday!

I almost feel like August 24th turns into a bit of a holiday. We have to celebrate with both sides of the family and we like to have our own celebration as well. It isn't that I think my birthday is that big of a deal, but when you share your birthday with someone else (umm, like your husband!) it just tends to be celebrated a little bigger. At least Matt won't ever forget my birthday, right? ;)

This year we are just having a few people over for a cookout. My parents are coming up to take us out to lunch tomorrow and my in-laws came up earlier in the week for dinner. I have to say that celebrating my birthday on my own would feel a little strange at this point. I love sharing a birthday with my husband and wouldn't have it any other way! I ALSO love that he is exactly a year older, too so now he can let me know what the big 3-0 is like! Haha! Happy Birthday to us!

  1. Happy birthday! So cool that your and your husband's birthdays are on the same day. Great shorts, I have the same pair and I love them!

  2. Happy birthday to you both! Mine and my husband's birthdays are four days apart (he's one year and four days older than me!) so we tend to celebrate them together as well, so whenever we celebrate ends up being a big deal, too! Also, I'm totally jealous of those shorts. I wish they'd looked as good on me as they do you!

  5. Thanks! They are great shorts and go with so much. I just got them so I am trying to make sure I get to wear them lots before fall comes!

  6. That's so neat! I love celebrating with my husband. Even though I don't get 'my day' I get to share it with someone I love which kind of makes it more special. It's too bad they didn't fit you, but your Gap shorts are pretty awesome! :)

  8. Happy Birthday! It's so fun that you share a birthday with your husband. My husband's bday is a couple weeks before mine, so I always joke that we have to celebrate every day in October!

  9. I'm so glad I got them, they go with a lot more than I thought they would!

  10. Of course you should! I love how having the same or close birthdays totally extends the celebration. Some people have told me they wouldn't want to 'share' their birthday, but I think it makes it so much more fun!
