Oh.My.Goodness!!! This is such a GOOD movie!! Don’t even bother reading the rest of this and head straight to the theater!! You won’t be sorry!! My MIL and I watched this together and both thought is was WONDERFUL! This is such a heart warming movie! It will make you appreciate the people you have in your life and want to “make better mistakes” with. I was tearing up with the first few minutes of the movie(over the clip above)… for me I could really empathize with thinking about a child you may never have. I had a miscarriage before we were blessed with Alex and could whole heartedly relate to the Greens describing their “would be” child. However don’t think that this is just a sappy movie because it is not, you will laugh (a lot), maybe cry, get irritated, be happy, but in the end you’ll will have hope and feel that anything is possible!! I HIGHLY recommend this movie. Take the whole family and leave feeling uplifted!!

    We usually just go out for dinner on my birthday. Last summer though, when I turned 40, I was on a cruise, so that was great!

    I don't. Once I turned 40 I never looked back. The kids like taking me out to dinner though. I can handle that.

  3. Thrifty and Chic Mom

    For me the family comes over for a cookout, nice and low key. I may go out for drinks with my girlfriends too.Happy Birthday!

    Lately, just a nice dinner out 🙂

    It depends on who I'm celebrating with. If it's with my husband or friends we usually go out to dinner, a club or take a trip. When I celebrate with family we have a huge BBQ, since my birthday is around the end of summer.

    Happy (early) Birthday!!We usually go out to dinner or order dinner and stay in – unless it's a 'Big' birthday, then you're right – that deserves a BIG party! 😉Aloha: Super Bowl Plans

    My husband and I are going on a date for my birthday, and then I am putting some cash into our Vegas fund for my gift, so I can go shopping there. Some years we don't do anything, but other times we actually get to do a little something. 🙂

  8. Brandi

    Oh, and happy birthday early to you! 🙂

    Today is my birthday. I didn't even remember it was until I was in the car line picking up my son. No celebration here. Dh did send me an email from half way around the world though. I just went and bought myself an ice cream cake. I'll share with the kids later and that's about it.

    Happy Birthday girl! Such a young thing! 🙂 I hope your time at the ranch is better than the last time…and that you get some sleep! :)I like to go out to dinner too for my birthday. Mine is next month so need to start thinking of some place good!

    Typically for my birthday we try to make it out to dinner. Some years this does not happen thanks to snow. Then we have cake with the kids and enjoy time together.

    I usually try to ignore my birthday – but we celebrate BIG for the kids' birthdays!BTW – new follower, love your blog!

    Happy Birthday! usually we either go out for a meal or have people round for a bbq, but next year's my 30th and I'm thinking a trip somewhere I'll never forget?!
