    As a twin I always have to share my birthday. Fun but not fun too! So when my hubby and I first started dating he threw me my very own, first ever, surprise party. It was so memorable and all about me πŸ™‚
    My favorite scents are dulce de leche and the ginger cookie one. Yummmy!
    Happy birthday Kristi!

    On my 5th birthday my mom had a cake designed with a Cabbage Patch Premie face. The face looked just like my new doll. The outline of the doll's head was lined in candles. My brother thought it would be funny to smash the new doll's head into the cake. The candles melted dimples into my premies face. Brothers!
    I don't have a sentsy favorite because I have never smelled one.

    Posting for a friend who is having "technical difficulties" – My story (nice and long) lol: my favorite/ most memorable birthday was my 16th birthday. Not your typical "sweet sixteen", me, my mom, my grandma and my, most favorite person in this world, my papa all rented a van to haul a wringer washer to Delaware. We spent my birthday there with my closest family plus all of my Amish "family". There are no pictures of my birthday (for obvious reasons) but all of my Amish "family" came over to celebrate, bring gifts that they would not ever even use themselves. I remember as everyone sang Happy Birthday to me how special I felt, I got teary eyed and loved every moment. Its still so close to my heart. My favorite Scentsy Scent is – fittingly- Happy Birthday, because its the only one I have smelled so far! Happy Birthday Kristi!!! – Courtney K.

    I know I am going for the obvious! But because my son was born so close to my birthday that will always be my favorite (until our next child!) I am a firm believer that family is one of life’s greatest blessings! That’s the first birthday I had with my husband and son together and I will always remember the love I felt on that day!
    Favorite Scentsy Scent: Dulce de Leche (LOVE)
    Already a fan of Ava & Isla!
    Birth Time: 1:22 PM

    My most memorable birthday moment was probably when my best friend threw me a surprise party for my 17th birthday. I had NO idea about the party and when I walked into her house, I was SHOCKED that so many of my friends were there. It was great!

    I liked Ava & Isla's Facebook page!

    My favorite scentsy scents are Sunkissed Citrus and Lucky in Love

    My guess is that you were born at 12:34pm

    Happy Birthday!

    Yay for extensions! πŸ™‚ Well, being as my older brother's birthday is 2 days before mine, he & I always shared our birthday parties. We usually had some friends (but mainly our birthday were family events) over and then a couple of them (for each of us) would spend the night. I kinda love this idea because it's simple and I think it helped keep us kids a lil more grounded in relationships.

    BUT, this one time, a family friend decided to throw us a party at Chuck E Cheese! This was a huge deal to us, as we didn't have a lot of money growing up & my dad was raising us as a single parent. The centerpiece on my table was a teddy bear dressed in a red plaid shirt and denim, like a lumberjack. Haha. I think I still had that bear til a few years ago.

    Love the other stories! I have no idea what my favorite scentsy scent would be because I'm a scentsy virgin! LOL πŸ™‚

    I am also already a fan of Ava & Isla. <3
    My guess for birth time is… 3:19 am.
