All I want for Christmas - Birthday is...

Yes, for the last 40 years, I probably been robbed of birthday presents since my birthday is so close to Christmas.. " what do you want for your Christmas - Birthday gift?"

For this milestone birthday, I don't really know what I want so I started making a list.  This list became pretty looooooooooooooong!  and expensive. Oh by the way.. hubby is planning a party... sshhh! I found out about it ( men are not good party planners!)

Not sure how old I was when  I got this doll, it was from my grandparents sent from Canada to the Philippines. I think I was about 4 years old in this picture. Back then, this is all I wanted nothing more nothing less.

Kidding aside, I had a wish this year to go to Europe with my husband for our 40th birthdays but did not happen. We had 3 trips this year ( Manila, Chicago, Dominican Republic), I think we are still pretty blessed to have done so many great things and visited so many different places.

So what do I really want for my birthday???. I really don't know. I have a few weeks to figure it out.



Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again,

Hugs,

Monica

My daughter's birthday is on December 24th, we have tried to always get her to have double gifts. but she always gets disappointed that she cannot have a birthday party with her friends as many of them are not available.
