Birthday Wishes

January 9, 2012 · 49 comments

I had a truly blyssful birthday yesterday.

And just in case you’re wondering what you can still get me for my birthday…

Other than VOTING for me here

to join Chocolate Milk Team Refuel by typing “ALYSSA” and clicking
(my ultimate birthday wish would probably be for you all to vote daily until Sunday, January 15)


Other than that, I’ve compiled a list of things I’d be very happy to receive. I’ll even act surprised upon opening the gift.



This could come in so handy. so. often.


I do tend to get messy sometimes.


Then I’d just need to snag a roommate to come in and laugh at me every time I peek through the profile picture window.


A bubble wrap calendar. What the heck have we been doing all our lives with regular calendars?!

And maybe a blog button that says “I’m Gina‘s baby’s birthday buddy.” How cool is it that precious little Olivia was born on my birthday (congrats to Gina and the Pilot!)?

Which, by the way, is also Elvis’ birthday.

And… ya know, I wouldn’t mind receiving one of the following for my birthday:



And I’m still waiting on the WineRack. Just sayin. πŸ˜‰

A birthday activities recap will appear tomorrow. Thank you all for the many birthday wishes. My friends, family, and readers made it a very special day. πŸ™‚

I have a pad of fake parking tickets with a nasty/funny message about being more considerate. Best investment ever – you feel so good after slapping one on someone’s windsheild!

Glad you had a great birthday!

I would be way too chicken to actually use those parking tickets. But I’d laugh my butt off if I saw one on my car. Because I always need at least two tries to park correctly. Can I drive? yes. Can I park? No. πŸ˜‰

Is it weird that when I saw the bubble wrap calendar, all I could think about was streamrollering across it? Seriously, that would be SO fun.
And Channing Tatum is delicious.

Glad to hear you had a fabulous bday πŸ™‚

Great post and Happy Birthday! Wish I can get you that soup guard for your day! However, that seems not plausible at the moment.

I totes have that head wrap thing. It def comes in handy while eating food, nothing like keeping your hair out of your food. This is clearly the only way how.

You’re welcome, Honey Boo Boo Child.

I totally LOL-ed at that social shower curtain. I used to have bacon and egg bandaids. They were entirely entertaining. Glad you had a good birthday!

HAHAH what the heck is that face mat thing? Amazing. I need one for when I read food blogs bc I tend to drool on myself/keyboard. Not really, but you know what I’m saying. πŸ™‚ HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!

Gross axing for gifts? Tacky


37 Alyssa @ Life of bLyss June 22, 2017 at 2:30 pm

Hi, Shaqueefa!

I love that you stumbled on a post from long ago (over 5 years!). I sense you couldn’t tell this was meant to be a funny joke. πŸ™‚ Don’t worry, I avoid being tacky here whenever possible!

I hope you have a great day, and thanks for reading.
