One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle at a little bit of this & that, is having another fun link up!
For this link up, you blog about your birthday! So here it goes...
My birthday is November 23rd which is also my BFF, Eric's half birthday. We figured it was destiny that we would be besties since we are "halfers." I'm a Sagittarius and I remember when I was younger I had this nightgown with the symbol of Sagittarius but it was Disney themed. It was really weird looking back on it but I think it was one of my favorite nightgowns to wear.
For the longest time I didn’t think I shared my birthday with anybody famous except for the guy who play Michael in Grease 2.
One last person I share my birthday with this gem (hahaha) ...
Anyways, I was born the day after Thanksgiving in 1984. Since my birthday is around Thanksgiving I usually have the day off. If not, then I take the day off. Who likes working on their birthday? Since the date of Thanksgiving changes every year, a few times my birthday has actually landed on Thanksgiving. This is kinda fun but also not because for Thanksgiving you want pumpkin pie but you need cake on your birthday right? Speaking of cake... for most of the birthdays we celebrate in our family if it's not homemade then we will usually get a rum cake from an Italian bakery in San Francisco called Dianda's. I actually prefer the strawberry cake but strawberries aren't in season in November.
The birthstone for November is Citrine or Topaz. Now I'm not that big a fan of yellow/brown and even less of a fan for that color gemstone. I love baby blue so I decided that I would adopt blue topaz as my birthstone. My mom gave me this really pretty blue topaz ring one year for my birthday.
