STS Birthday Celebration {Day 4}

Today is my day to "host" the STS birthday party!

First up, let me introduce myself to you all "formally"
 I am Christin..and I am a Stay @ Home Mommy. I love all things creative. Sewing, cooking and of course scrapping are my top 3. I have been designing for about 3 years, and was super excited when Nicole of Stuff to Scrap offered me a permanent spot on the STS design team in November of 2010. 
I am married to my High School sweetheart, Jeremy. We started dating in 1996, and have basically been inseparable since. He is in the US Air Force and we are stationed @ Fairchild, AFB WA. We are from Washington state, so we are very happy to be where we are. Fingers crossed no orders come down anytime soon!! ;)
We have 2 children. Our son, Jae is 8 and Kylee is 3. As a family we love hanging out, outside. Camping, 4x4, ORV, hiking, biking, swimming... anything that gets us out of the house and making memories. :)

Next, I will answer a question from the STS Birthday Punch bowl.
"Has anyone ever done anything extra special for you on your birthday?"
For my 23rd birthday, my hubby's co-worker took me out for the day. She took me on a shopping spree and told me to buy anything I wanted! LOL, Im such a thrifty shopper, she got off lucky! A pair of jeans and a top for only $40. Then we went out to lunch @ Famous Dave's BBQ. It was nice to get out and pamper myself, daddy stayed with Jae who @ the time was only 3. 
I can't decide what was better, the food and outfit or being able to eat my food and shop without a antsy toddler touching everything. ;)

In a comment below, you answer the same question:  
"Has anyone ever done anything extra special for you on your birthday?"

Thanks for a cute kit. For my 30th birthday my husband took me to Las Vegas and bought me a brand new Coach purse. That was probably my most special birthday so far!

Christin this kit is adorable! Thanks so much!!! I think the nicest thing anyone has done on my birthday was when I was a brand new nursing mom and my husband made an appointment for me to have a one hour massage while he stayed with the baby.

Beautiful birthday kit! A few years ago my husband surprised me by (all on his own) getting a babysitter and taking me out for a romantic dinner and out to the movies. Another year he surprised me with concert tickets.

Thanks so much for the freebie. My husband made me a birthday cake while I was at a meeting and he was watching our three children (at that time). He is always doing something for my birthday.

Thank you very much!
The extra special birthday given to me was when I was 17 and my mother had just unexpectedly died. A girlfriend from the nursing home I worked at knew I was going through a bad time and planned a special day to Mount Rainier with other friends. I'm 55 and we are still good friends even thoughwe live 2500 miles apart.

Just this Sunday my husband made it my birthday celebration day even though my birthday was on Tuesday. We are expecting baby #3 any day now, and he wanted to make sure I felt special.

He took my eldest daughter out present shopping while the younger one napped, bought me a cookie dough ice cream cake, and grilled dinner out for us.
