As kids, we celebrate our birthdays with a party filled with family, friends, balloons and maybe even a clown *ugh*
As teenagers, a sleepover involving prank calls, Ouija board and ice cream sundaes was considered a rite of passage into adolescence.
In our 20’s, dressing up in a sausage casing aka mini skirt wearing open-toe shoes in the dead of winter (not that I’m speaking from experience) and getting your drank on with your entourage in the club – was the IT thing to do.
When you’re a grown-up, clowns, sleepovers and getting dolled up seems more like a chore than celebration.
Welcome to adulthood.
Just because you’re poppin’ babies instead of poppin’ bottles doesn’t mean your special day has to be less exciting.
Take my sister for instance.
Despite her hectic schedule of a high-demanding job, taking care of family and getting ripped at boot camp, she was still able to organize, plan and execute a birthday brunch over this past weekend.
With the proper preparation, time management and Pinterest, you can also host a brunch that would make Martha Stewart proud.
