Valentine’s day is my birthday, but I never have a party on that day. Everywhere is so crowded, and the prices double/triple.
One year we made reservations at a Steak Restaurant, and when we arrived were told it was an hour’s wait. I asked them why we had bothered to make reservations if they were running that late. I can accept 15 minutes, but no more, due to my husband’s diabetes. When we left the wait was 2 and a half hours.
We usually have a small party at the Fraternal Order of Eagles (F.O.E.) and for years I would get a half sheet birthday cake, that would run me around $25. I would have 1 slice, hubby wouldn’t eat any, and most of the club got to enjoy it.
Last year I did 24 cupcakes, and as I don’t like the icing/frosting in the states, I had one mouthful of cake.
I was in Winn Dixie Supermarket, and they had these 16 ounce (1 lb.) 8 portion cheesecakes. I love cheesecake, and so does my best friend, so I bought two, and this way 16 people can have a slice.
The live music, and dancing are free, and the drinks are really inexpensive. I will only have one as I am driving, but it will be a nice little get together. We are doing it tomorrow, because the 14th will be so busy, and I won’t get near the dance floor.
How do you celebrate your birthday?
