1. While I'm grateful for another year, I prefer to keep my birthday low key, which is difficult when all the kids at school wish you Happy Birthday all day.
2. I read more during the summer, so 4 or 5 per month during summer and 1 during the school year. I'm ashamed to admit that.
3. Not really a consignment shopper.
4. I cook on weekends.

1. I prefer a low key birthday. A quiet, private Happy Birthday is preferred to the the loud and obnoxious singing. We have one staff member who thinks itís fun to sing the "You look like a Monkey and smell like one, tooŅ song to anyone with a birthday. She loves it! I donít!

2. 2

3. I do enjoy them, but we donít have many.

4. I really donít do either. Food is still an "ehhhh" thing right now. Nothing is interesting or tasty.

1. I like a low-key celebration. Gotta do something, just not much.
2. Now that I am newly retired, I am going through two books a week, so about 8 a month.
3. I get most of my clothes at the upscale consignment shop. Except pants, which are tough to fit.
4. I don't know that you would call what I do "cooking". But I do usually eat at home, unless I am getting together with DS or friends.

1) A nice dinner and/or movie or fun day at a theme park, sure, but I've never thrown myself a party or big to-do. The last b-day party I've had in general was when I was 7.
2) Hardly any, which I'm kind of mad at myself about. I'm much more of a TV/movie person.
3) No
4) Regardless of the day, I get a lot of takeout.

1.Do you like celebrating your birthday, or would you prefer to make it low key?
I like celebrating.

2. How many books would you say that you typically read in a month?
During the school year--probably 2-3 books. I read EVERY night before I go to sleep.
During the summer, I probably read on the average 4 books.

3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores?
Yes.

4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out?
DH and I are empty nesters, so we out a lot. But on Sunday evenings all of the kids come over and I do cook a meal for everybody.

1. We have "birthday week" in my house. My birthday, dh's birthday, my oldest son's birthday, and Thanksgiving are all in the same week. It's a whirlwind of celebrations, but I love it.

2. Maybe 3-4

3. I love shopping for kids clothes at consignment stores. I've never had very good luck finding things for myself though.

4. Both. It depends on our weekend plans.

1.Do you like celebrating your birthday, or would you prefer to make it low key?

Low key - it's between Christmas & New Year's do it's always felt like it was inconvenient for friends & family. Easier to ignore than get my hopes up.

2. How many books would you say that you typically read in a month?

, summer - 10; school year - less than 1

3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores?

I do, but I don't do it often. I generally go where I know I will find what I need.

4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out?

I'm more likely to cook on weekends. I often pick up food during school week. I try to do one new recipe a week during the summer when I have time to cook.

maybe 1

Love it!

4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out?
We cook most of the time. Our local restaurants are super limited.

1. I don't usually do anything spectacular for my birthday. As a family, we usually go out to dinner and that's about it.

2. I read 3-4 books per month (more in the summer - maybe 5 or 6), depending on the length of the book. I made my Goodreads goal last year of 50 books and I'm trying to do the same this year.

3. I really don't shop at consignment stores - only thrift shops around here and I barely visit those.

4. I usually cook on Sunday nights and either Friday or Saturday we eat out or pick up take-out.

4-5

3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores?
The only consignment store near me has gotten expensive and not much in it. I love second hand stores, and antique stores.

I would prefer to eat out all.the.time. Sadly, I have to cook.

I love celebrating my birthday and this year, it's a big one--the 6 word.
2. How many books would you say that you typically read in a month?
6-8. Retirement is wonderful!
3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores?
Sometimes. It depends on the store
4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out?
I make 95% of our meals. We go out to dinner about once a month and we rarely go on the weekend because it tends to be too busy.

1) My Birthday is coming up! I make it SPECTACULAR for myself! I'm turning 51. It has been another Rough, Tough year. I treat myself right. I'm going to a Rick Springfield concert the week after my birthday (Thanks to my Dear Husband.) We will go out to a nice lunch. I will browse around ALL four craft stores. I will watch my favorite movies. We'll have a Carvel ice cream cake.
I already bought my presents: books at the library book sale.

2) I read a little something every single day. I read poetry, inspirational, devotionals, and The Bible, as well as books about art, writing, and the creative process. I also love folktales and metaphysical books about astrological signs, dreams, crystal healing, and the meanings of flowers. I go back to this storehouse of books over and over again, reading little snippets and chapters.

3) I really LOVE to shop at Thrift Stores and Goodwill. One man's junk/ castaways is another man's treasure. Things I've always wanted, but could not justify buying, I get for a few bucks at Goodwill.

4) My Dear Husband is an AWESOME cook. We dine at Wendy's on the weekends.

1. I keep my birthday low key. All I ask each year is to not have to cook or clean, and for my kids to be nice to each other.

2. School year - 4-8. Summer - 12-20
3. Yes!
4. I don't cook. Ever. Don't eat out much either. Either dh cooks or I graze.

1.Do you like celebrating your birthday, or would you prefer to make it low key? I never celebrate my birthday. There's no particular reason for that except that I've never really seen the point.
2. How many books would you say that you typically read in a month? Probably 2-5.
3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores? Yes. I will usually see if I can find a needed item used before I buy it new. I don't really believe in materialism so consignment stores fit with my values. I like online consignment stores, too.
4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out? It depends on what I'm doing. If it's a stay-at-home get-stuff-done weekend, I will cook a lot and prep food for the upcoming week. If it's an out-and-about weekend, I'll probably eat out more.

Two to three.

3. Do you like to shop at consignment stores? Never.

4. Do you cook often on the weekends, or do you eat out?

I cook all the meals for the week on weekends. We eat out rarely.

1. No birthday celebrating...maybe just dinner out with DH and myself.
2. At least 5-6 books. Reading is my favorite activity.
3. Nope...
4. We eat at home most weekends. Iíd rather go out for lunch or dinner during the week. Especially during summer when all the tourists are here. Easier to eat out in winter!
