I’ll be honest: I LOVE a birthday. Especially when it is mine.
No, my birthday is not today. It is however less than two weeks away… February 6!
What has been my favorite birthday so far, you ask?
Well I’d have to say it is a tie between my 15th birthday and my 20th birthday. The day I turned 15 happened to fall on a Wednesday… and if you know anything about me, you know that I was a loyal youth group attendee. So I was pretty pumped to go to youth group and get all that attention (sad but true). Unknown to me was a little surprise that my best friends Jessi and Allison put together. They made a book that was all things Megan and had my friends from school and youth group sign it at the back. When they gave it to me that night I felt quite special, and I still love to look at that book from time to time.
Daniel Thompson (top right corner) was a great middle school friend. He used to share his lunch with me at school everyday, which I know realize made me seem like I couldn’t afford my own lunch. I definitely could, I just never cared to make it at home or get in line to buy it. Lazzzzy. And yes, that is Josh Hartnett down at the bottom. He was just too hot in The Faculty.
No idea who that guy was, but Jessi and Allison CLEARLY found him attractive. The pages go on and on with hilarious pictures of boys I had crushes on and surfing advertisements. Everything about this book makes me laugh.
The other favorite birthday took place in Tigersville/Greenville South Carolina when I attended North Greenville University for my sophomore year of college. There was no surprise or some huge, ridiculous gift or anything. It was just a fun get together at Coffee Underground in downtown Greenville. What made it so special was that people that had only known me for 5 months were so genuine in celebrating another year of my life. I felt incredibly loved and appreciated. That night was a blast.
Holy crap, I totally forgot about my 21st Disney Birthday! Well now I have to talk about that. My three best friends and I journey to the world where all of your dreams come true…. and that is exactly what happened! From the moment we arrived in the Magical Disney World good things happened. We even got an etra day of Disney fun for free because it was my birthday! Every Disney worker wished me happy birthday because of my little birthday pin, and my three best friends concocted a scavenger hunt all throughout MGM that ended with me getting a Ukelele! The last night we were there we partied in Pleasure Island. I danced on a revolving floor, Jumped up and down with a girl who just got married, and had a dance off with some Brits. It was the best thing ever, and the inside jokes are endless.
That guy looks like Jimmy Fallon.
Sleeping Guy. I don’t know how you could fall asleep in Magic Kingdom.
So what about your favorite birthday[s]? What and who made it so special?
