It’s birthday weekend for Matt and I! We have the same birthday so we tend to celebrate together. This year, in lieu of lip-syncs and beach dates we are renovating a house. Matt looked at me the other day and said, “Hey, it’s almost your birthday – I bought you some floors”. ;) That’s about what birthdays are looking like for us this year.

Although who can resist spilling a little confetti on the floor to celebrate? Before we run out to enjoy a bit of weekend birthday fun, here are a few favorite ways to celebrate a birthday when you’re running are short on time.

PS. And for a year when I have a little more time, isn’t this present idea adorable?
