Well, January is never just the start of a new year for me; its the commencement of my birth month. On the 16th January, 23 years ago I was brought into this world by the most wonderful mother. While I appreciate her for this, I sometimes wish she held off until February at least (if only it worked like that!).
Having a January birthday is great and all, but its the time of year where nobody wants to really do anything, and I can’t blame them to be honest. Everybody has spent the last month and then some preparing for the Christmas festivities, getting jollied off their trees and ringing in the new year with their loved ones. The last thing they want to do is splash out more cash to go out when they are still nursing their food babies from the month before. Again, I cannot blame anybody for feeling this way, heck if it wasn’t for my birthday, my Januaries would be the quietest month ever too.
The great thing about this January though, was that I was pregnant! So no booze-ups or nights out for me, which meant that I could save my money for the bambino that is to come later this year. We just had a quiet one in the house for my birthday and it was so so welcome.
Organising a Pregnant Birthday Surprise for your friend
My best friend had organised a day for us for my birthday which was very exciting as when she plans things in secret, they are usually the best surprises ever! So I was curious and excited to see what she planned.
And my friends? She planned the perfect day for my birthday to a tee. I was surprised by what she had planned but knowing how thoughtful and caring she is, I wasn’t surprised as to how wonderful it was.
She picked me up on my day off and drove around to her apartment where she made me wait downstairs while she organised something in secret.
She called me upstairs and BAM the emotions hit me. She transformed her room into a mini cinema room, catering to all my snack cravings, even with the non-alcoholic rose wine in tow.
She strung up fairy lights and laid out two of the comfiest looking onesies and fluffy socks I had ever seen and she had even filled her pop-corn container with my ultimate craving… Flaming Hot Monster Munch. It took everything in my soul to hold back the happy tears (and not to shove all those little flaming hot monsters into my gob).
It was the sweetest surprise ever and so beyond thoughtful as it was everything I could have wanted; a nice wee lazy day but the best opportunity to veg out and snack without judgement and to catch up with my best friend. I am so lucky to be able to call her my best friend.
I always tell my friend to go into business to organise things like this for other people- do you think so too?
So, if you are looking for ideas on how to organise a pregnant birthday surprise for your best friend, consider creating a low-key movie session for her. Trust me, she will love it.
