As someone who is about to hit the legal drinking age, I can't say for sure. :thumbsup:

But, since I am a woman, a word of advice: don't do or say anything to make her feel too much 'older' and you should be okay. From what I've seen, after a certain point, women hate to age! Just plan something fun, that makes her feel young. That should make her happy. :flowers:

And yes, 29 is a good age to be at forever. :trumpet:

You can't go wrong making every birthday special for her - gentle smile - but usually it's '40' and then '50' that are the biggies. But, that said, if your wife feels her 35th is a special one, then it is for her - honestly!

Lots of choices - friends bringing food the old fashioned 'pot luck' style and you providing the drinks and balloons and fresh flowers and a cake, of course. Or a wonderful romantic 'dinner out'. All sorts of choices but it's a rare women who doesn't appreciate anything a man she loves does to make her day extra special.

On a personal note, I read the words, (Quote) "From what I've seen, after a certain point, women hate to age". (Unquote). And sadly that may be true for some. For myself, when I was 29 I thought it was great - and 39 and 49 too! Grin! After all, the alternative to aging leaves a lot to be desired!

Have a wonderful time on your wife's birthday, 'killmypc' - a man who takes the time to wonder about his wife's feelings is a winner already!
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Thanks yall,

I thought women were '39' Forever... :thumbsup:

I have probably spoiled her already, I take flowers to her at work, and Starbucks of course! Dinner out is just part of it.But I guess I will wait for 40 to get her good!
She sure got me good on my 40th. I came back from fishing with a buddy (who was in on it btw) to find about 30 people in the back yard yelling SURPRISE! And LOTS of 'over the hill' stuff. All that was missing was the 'comb-over' wig! :flowers: Then she took me out in the country for a weekend at a B&B, it was great! :trumpet:
I want to do somthing similar for her, but I will have a much harder time keeping it a secret.

Thanks again

Sounds like you had a great time on your 30th, killmypc! Isn't it odd how men can seem to cope with the standard 'over the hill' jokes but it'd be a near-fatal mistake to do it to a woman - hoot!

If it was me killmypc I would love a dinner out, and for a present a necklace or ring.. you can't ever go wrong with jewelry IMHO hehehe
Nothing extravagant but something she can have from you.. that's where the value comes in. The fact that you took time to choose something for HER, you know?

Just my 2 cents.. :thumbsup:

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
