Ten on Tuesday - 10 Ways to Have a Happy Birthday

This past weekend we filled the house for the second week in a row. The main reason was to break the fast at the end of Yom Kippur but we kicked it up a notch and added a birthday cake to celebrate Bruce's birthday the previous weekend. Birthday cake is way better if there are lots of people to share it.


Today is the birthday of my friend Carole, the leader of our Ten on Tuesday so what could be a better topic than 10 Ways to Have a Happy Birthday. Go wish her a Happy Birthday, the list will still be here when you get back.

1. Eat cake - Chocolate is good. It could even be a cupcake.

2. Spend time with friends and family - preferably doing nothing at all. Just kick back and relax.

3. Take the day off - admittedly I really never do but it sounds like a great idea. Take the day all for yourself.

4. Eat more cake - on second thought maybe I'd go with lemon. Yum. I love fruity stuff.

5. Go get a mani/pedi - pamper yourself a little and you'll feel relaxed and pretty afterwards. Win!

6. Go somewhere fun - see a movie or a show. Maybe go to a place where you can paint your own pottery. Whatever - it just needs to be fun.

7. Eat even more cake - The more I think of it the more I think that an ice cream cake would be just the thing. Did you know that a B&R Fudge Round makes excellent shakes after the big day. Just sayin'.

8. Go out to dinner - it could be your favorite restaurant where they know your name and your "usual", somewhere new that you've always wanted to try, or even a picnic.

9. Sleep in - Forget alarm clocks, errands, and things that you have to do. Just relax!

10. Eat a cupcake - or maybe 2 or 3 really decadent, delicious, ones. You know, the really pretty and expensive ones that are as much fun to look at as they are to eat. Remember - the calories don't count on you birthday.
