For my 33rd birthday, I celebrated by...

  1. Putting a candy bar and a note in my mailbox for the mail lady.
  2. Paying for the next car in line in the McDonalds drive thru.
  3. Taking treats to the child-care center at the YMCA. (They are so good to my little ones.)
  4. Giving a treat to my personal trainer. (Irony.)
  5. Canvassing to get out the vote.
  6. Putting away stray carts at Walmart.
  7. Bought a gift card at Walmart and turned around and handed it to the lady behind me.
  8. Volunteering for lunch duty with my daughter's class.
  9. Giving a treat and a note to each of my kid's teachers.
  10. Muffins to the poll workers at my local Early Voting station.
  11. I voted.
  12. Chips and salsa to our local volunteer fire department.
  13. Treats to my OB/GYN and his office.
  14. Treats to the nurses in labor and delivery. (They do such a great job.)
  15. A balloon and a smoothie to a random brand new mom on the L&D floor.
  16. Tape quarters to vending machines.
  17. Treats to the ER nurses. (We've been there...2? 3? times this year?)
  18. Drop off cookies and juices at Bright Blessings, a great organization here that hosts birthday parties for homeless children.
  19. Drop treats off to my favorite librarians.
  20. Have lunch at a small, local cafe that is struggling to stay in business.
  21. Take treats to a good friend who is going through a rough patch.
  22. Drop donut holes off at the sheriff station.
  23. Play checkers with my son. (Yes. That counts as a service. I don't do games. *grin*)
  24. Sing extra songs to all my kids.
  25. Make 75 baggies of caramel corn for our ward's trunk or treat.
  26. Scatter lucky pennies.
  27. Pick up garbage.
  28. Take bags of toys and clothes to Goodwill.
  29. Watch neighbor's kids to help them out.
  30. Take someone dinner.
  31. Make cookies for neighbors.
  32. Rub my sweetheart's feet.
  33. Give to humanitarian aid.
I am exhausted. Next year, I would definitely spread it over several days, but it was a FANTASTIC birthday...
