    anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
    Yeah, they just don't get it!! At least he should remember our anniversary because our wedding is the day after his birthday. I just think that kind of stuff doesn't matter to him. Thing is I had already told him that I didn't care about going out to dinner because we had company all weekend and he took my parents out Friday, my friend/BM out Sat & Sunday...so we had leftover pizza from last night for dinner.
    Can't wait until people at work say?? So what did you do for your birthday?? "Ummm...I ate leftover pizza and drank myself into a drunken stupor because FI forgot my birthday..thanks for asking though" Actually I don't think it's possible he forgot (he has a reminder on his phone) I just think he thought he didn't even have to acknowledge it because I said we didn't have to go out.

        SHOOT! I was really hoping that he was planning a big surprise for you...
        Happy birthday from me and my family. H2B never forgets because I do the monthly count down. would you like me to call and remind him
        1 month? Shoot, I start the countdown at Christmas
        Ok, so he comes in and I can see the birthday card and then he goes in the kitchen..I'm not even looking at him I'm just writing to you guys and in between slamming my drink. So then he goes, "Come in here I have something for you...." I'm like "No, it's too late now...you've lost the whole point of it" He hands me a card that is a picture of a piece of cake on the front .and then reaches in the fridge and goes and to go with it--and he pulls out my favorite kind of ice cream from our local custard place. He tried to say he bought the card before..I don't think so. So, I say thanks and give him a kiss and then I say I have to get back to bashing him on my BDW website..ha He's like..no you wouldn't do that..I'm like yes. It's just very hurtful sometimes.

        It's funny because last year he didn't have as many reminders and I was actually going to be gone on my birthday for my friend's bachelorette party in Vegas..and he hid a really pretty pink sapphire (he knew I liked that stone) with diamond ring from Helzberg in my suitcase along with a b-day card. Which was very sweet and the card said the next ring will be bigger...so that was even sweeter!! Because I knew it meant he was thinking of proposing soon...So, he just doesn't get it that all I really wanted was for him to tell me Happy Birthday or give me a card without me telling him. So, now he goes upstairs and I stay downstairs watching Oprah and
        That is so sweet what he did last year! I cannot believe he forgot your birthday this year!!!!

        My Dad forgot my Birthday one year. I was about 18 and had just returned from Mexico (senior trip). My friend's parents picked us up from the airport so I was already a little sad that my Dad wasn't at the airport. Came home, grabbed my old boyfriend from down the street and brought him back to my Dad's house. We were going to go out for some dinner with friends so I yelled up the stairs to my Dad asking if I could have $20. He yelled back (VERY GRUMPILY!) "FOR WHAT?!?" to which I replied "...my Birthday...". DEAD silence LOL And then he immediately softened up and said "oh... oh yeah, ok. sure, here you go" LMAO BAD DAD!!!!!!!!!!

              Funny thing is my dad usually doesn't even remember my birthday (and for the first time in many years he forgot my mom's birthday this year) Usually I send her a card to remind him but mine got their late. Anyways he was in big trouble..one of his friends helped him out so he snuck over to the neighbor ladies (at their trailer park in FL) and borrowed a card and tried to sneak it on the counter..but mom knew!! We always know. but anyways my dad this year got me a separate card only from his htis year and wrote something really sweet in there...so not sure if he's getting all sentimental because his little girl is finally getting married!! ha
              You know it's funny too because I'm already thinking of plans for his birthday because it's the day before our wedding in Mexico. Oh well..I guess that's just how he grew up. I think his family at least calls him but they don't make a big deal about birthdays in his family. But when you know how much it means to me you think you'd know better to at least tell me Happy Birthday and get a card.

                Happy Birthday Amy!! And Honey you need to cash in on this for sure! I can't stand it when people use the excuse that birthdays don't mean much to them and thats why it gets blown off. It means something to you and that should be important.

                Oh Amy!!! First of all, smack him a little bit for me. And second, a little ditty from me to you:

                Happy birthday to you
                Your sweetie's a poo!
                He'll figure it out soon,
                but for now we yell boo!

                Okay... that was pretty bad. Sorry I couldn't come up with anything better on the fly.

                Have a happy, happy birthday!!!

                  Oh no! Well happy birthday Amy! FI better step it up! Birthdays are not meant to be forgotten until you turn 40. :) Then it's a count down.
