My birthday is today (yay). DH's bday is July 7th. We usually do something close to the 4th t celebrate both. My family always invites us over for dinner/cake. Up until last year, DH's family did the same. Last year they called and wanted to know when we were having our birthday dinner. Now if DH birthday was at a different time, I would definitely cook dinner, make a cake, invite everyone over. But we're celebrating my birthday too. I feel like I'm throwing myself a party. None of DH's other siblings invite us to their house for their birthdays, MIL usually hosts.
I don't need a bday party by any means, I am 27 years old. And to have to invite people to my house, cook and bake just doesn't seem right. DH thinks this is perfectly normal. I think it's weird, and I feel like we're throwing a party for ourselves.
Anyplusalso... If you were going to someone's house for their birthday, after you invited yourself, would you not at least bring a cake? Last year I was expected to get a cake too...
Am I nuts, or are they? lol
Anyone want to come to my partay?
