Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my 28th birthday and, as usual, I’m anticipating snow. Since this is the first time in two years that I haven’t been pregnant on my birthday, I’m excited to have PLANS and no morning sickness. The plan is to have a fun morning with the family and then head off for a little R&R at the spa! I’m getting a new haircut and massage. Tonight Mr. Eco Incognito and I are heading on a date, too. All in all, it’s shaping up to be one of the best birthdays yet. However, there is one thing that I really miss from my youth.

happy birthday to meIn high school, I loved the morning announcements. First of all, I got a kick out of finding out who else shared my birthday. I also loved that anyone who listened could wish me happy birthday all day. I intently listened year round in order to share the birthday love. Since my high school announcers are famous in Hollywood now, I’m going to celebrate in the next-best-way and share 28 famous people who are also born on January 18.

Without further ado… I present 28 people throughout history who share my birthday (via wikipedia). HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALL!
