Birthday Extraveganza

I had a FABULOUS Birthday!!! Having mom visiting really makes it extra special =D Well, let’s back up a bit. I’d also like to share some pictures of my mom’s visit. It’s been really great, but she’s only here for a few more days :(


Volunteer shift at the food bank




Checking out the sights in San Francisco

And my birthday! The day started off like any other, walking the pup – my favourite time of day. Everything is quiet (because it’s so freakin’ early!) and I’m with my thoughts and my cute wiggly bummed puppy. It’s a happy time.



Running with my visually impaired runner & our team – another favourite thing to do!


Birthday flowers


Visits from friends (with vegan gifts!)


Cupcakes & gifts





Manis with mom


And supper out




Fun facts about my birth I learned from mom:

  • She was told I would be a boy and thought so until I was born a girl (was almost Damien instead of Kimmy!)
  • If I was a girl, she wanted to name me Amber (my middle name), but dad wanted Kimberly
  • She had to be induced because I didn’t want to come out of her comfy cozy spot she made for me and her labour was long and hard
  • I was born at 2pm
  • I was extremely fussy and had a permanent rash for the first two months of existence until a doctor finally figured out I was allergic to milk
  • My sister begged & begged for a little sister and was so excited when my mom told her she was pregnant and “just knew” I was a girl despite my mom being told I was  a boy, we have been best friends since the day I was born (maybe even before)
  • I was meant to be born in the summer, the sun makes me vibrant and happy

Thanks to mom for making my birthday extra special this year =)

  1. Sounds like you had tons of fun! It’s always super special to have our mommy with us, isn’t it? Enjoy the next few days with her!

    Funny thing, I was sure that my sister was girl as well, despite the doctor saying it was a boy. I so wanted a sister!

  2. happy birthday kimmy – those are fun birth facts – I think my mum’s mind was befuddled by too many kids and she doesn’t seem to remember much about our births! Glad you had such a lovely day as you are so generous with others. Enjoy your time with your mum

  3. So happy you had such a fantastic birthday Bim Bim!!! You and mom look like you’re having a blast. You looked absolutely stunning in that blue dress for your dinner out, and your hair looked great!!! Love and miss you crazy amounts!!! <3 :)

  4. Belated Birthday wishes Kimmy. So cute to read your birth facts. My parents didn’t know if I was going to be a boy or girl, but my Grandfather chose my name Shaheen – which is unisex, so it was decided before I was even born. So lovely to see you haveing a fabulous day with your mother and others that make your life pleasurable.

    1. Well, Kim is apparently also a unisex name but I don’t think it would have worked as well. Shaheen does seem like a good name either way – that’s so nice that your grandfather chose your name =)
      Thank you!

  5. Happy Belated Birthday! It looks like you had lots of good food and lots of great company! I love that wrapping paper btw ^__~ I always end up buying kid wrapping paper for my nieces and end up getting in a jam and needing to use it for adult gifts. I had shimmery multi color leopard print wrapping paper, and my friend who loves animal prints was getting married. I joked about using that wrapping paper, but as I started to wrap, I didn’t have enough of any of the “wedding” paper, so I really did have to use the kids wrapping paper! XD
