Because Birthday’s Should Be Fun!

I’m convinced that the older I get the more fun I have.

So every time my birthday rolls around I think of it as an excuse to have some good ol’ goofy fun. So when my bestest asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday this year, I decided that we should have a few friends over and have a Minute to Win It party. Oh that was SUCH a good idea. 

My bestest Kathy did all the prep work and put all the games together. (I love her!)

Here are a few that she picked (with links to the games).

She modified the games to suit our needs and amount of people. So don’t think you have to stick to the rules.

A Bit Dicey

The Elephant March

game 2 game1

Hanky Panky

game 4

Face the Cookie (This one had me CRACKING up!) The cookie kept getting caught in my eye socket. LOL!

game 3

Nose Dive

game 5

Paper Dragon

Didn’t get any pictures of that one for some reason.

Sharp Shooter

No pictures of this one either.

Extreme Nutstacker (We modified this and used dice)

As you can see, we had a blast!

But what’s a party without dessert? I made my famous chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting (leaving the sides bare to save me some calories) and my daughter made my peanut butter pie. 


And then the giggles set in.


  Just remember,

 laugh a lot

Have a good day my friends.







  1. LOL, you know how to really celebrate a birthday!

  2. AND..we had tacos! AND guacamole...let us not forget the guac. :) lol
    It was a super fun night. :) I have photos of the sharp shooter, I could have provided them for you. :)
