My dream birthday and reality

Birthday cake, my birthday wish
My birthday wish
My birthday is September 20th. Every year my twin sister and I have been able to celebrate it together within the same week. When I was living in Pennsylvania or Massachusetts and she was in Canada, we would make sure to be home on the same weekend of our birthday to celebrate it. This year she is in Utah. I know that we won't be able to celebrate it together and it makes me sad. My older sister usually makes a yummy cake and she is gone too.

Just remember, this is a dream of a soon-to-be 36 year old.

If I could make a wish today for my birthday it would include a 7 night Eastern Caribbean Disney Cruise with my parents, five siblings and their families.  We would drive down to Port Canaveral and stay in hotels with a hot breakfast and be able to eat at places that are actually eat in on the way down.

Then reality steps in.  I am very thankful that I have my mom, dad, husband, son, brothers and their families here in New York with me.  My mother and I will be going to Buffalo, New York and will be eating at Ruby Tuesday.  I got a free hamburger coupon in my email, so that is what I will be eating.

After my husband gets home, I will be eating my dad's barbecued chicken and a delicious potato salad.  For dessert, I would like an apple pie and a pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream.  I have been waiting to open the KitchenAid mixer that I won until I moved, but that will be my birthday present.

I am excited to see what else happens on my birthday!
