BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY ....


It's OFFICIAL!

In just one week from today, I will be celebrating my {ahem} 29th birthday.

AGAIN.

No, really, it's my 34th and I embrace it - it's better than the alternative, right?

SO, what better way to celebrate than do what I love the most?

GIVEAWAY PRESENTS!

I'm giving away my favorite things - yes, this is totally random, but lots of fun!

SO - included in the loot is:


  • Reusable shopping bags (2) from my favorite home store: Homegoods
  • Jasmine Pear hand lotion/hand soap to put right by your sink
  • Cozy, comfy aloe infused socks (Shawn turned me on to these)
  • Adorable note cards & my favorite pen (fine point Sharpie)
  • Chocolate covered sunflower seeds (DELISH)
  • Pink Grapefruit Organic Body Oil (slather this on after you get out of the shower)
  • Pink Grapefruit Organic Body Cream
  • Magnetic Note Pad
  • Cute cards (y'all know I LOVE cards)
  • Pier 1 fragrance set - great for fall
  • MINT flavored candle soy candle (to die for)
  • ADORABLE Connection Cards to set up dates w/your girlfriends!
Not pictured, but still very much included:
  • Wine bag (b/c I can't ship wine over state lines, but I love a good glass of wine)
  • Fall-themed paper plates and napkins
  • Fall-themed kitchen handtowel
Now, if you are a country music fan like me, I will be happy to send you a CD from Big Daddy, because after all, he's my favorite singer - BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE A COUNTRY MUSIC FAN. You will not hurt my feelings if you are not, but I don't want to send it to you if you are not going to listen to it. Fair enough?

SO, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what your favorite birthday present has been - oh and let me know if you are a country music fan ....you don't HAVE to be a follower, but that would be nice. We'll choose the winner on:

FRIDAY ~ OCTOBER 16th @ 10:03 EST.

If you are related to me (ahem, Mom & Jenn) - you are not eligible to win.

I love country music and as a California girl I like to say I loved country way before it was cool! As in -- I saw Clint Black and Wynonna in concert with my dad because nobody else would go with me! These days my friends and I drive to Palm Springs annually for the StageCoach Country Music Festival and I cannot wait for April to get here so we can go again!! I have been rambling more than usual bc I am trying to think of what the heck my FAVORITE birthday present has been...I always get LV bags from #19 and those are obviously fab but I always end up loving random things like candles or a great nap time blanket...now I can't wait for July!! Oh and Happy EARLY Birthday N :)

Happy Birthday week!

Am I considered family? I know I wasn't listed but I would hate to win and make someone think it was arranged!

Chelsea Belle said...

First of all, Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope it is fabulous. I love, love, love country music. I especially love it now because I am so far away from where I grew up(Louisiana) that it makes me feel like I'm back home eating gumbo and watching college football. (Or a variation of that!)

My favorite present ever was a heart necklace that Jared gave me. When he was in school he was really struggling with the funds, and I knew that he couldn't really get me anything. Of course I was totally fine with that, but when he gave it to me it meant so much more because I knew he had to sacrifice for a while to buy it. I love putting it on in the morning. (Especially now that we are long distance until I'm done with nursing school)

Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Amber said...

Happy birthday (week) , my sassy twitter friend! Of course I'm a country fan. I grew up listening to country :) My favorite b'day present...my nephew. Hunter was born on my birthday. It doesn't get much better than that!

Amy said...

Happy Birthday week! New reader here. Let's see my favorite birthday present was my 2006 birthday. My boyfriend (now husband) gave me an engagement ring. Doesn't get much better than that.

And yes, I love country music! She Said Yes has been a favorite for a while and I still have my cd single. :)

Mrs. M said...

I found your blog through myblondereality's blog. Hope you have a great birthday week. I do like country music.... my favorite gift would have to be target gift cards. That way I can get anything I want! Otherwise I might end up with some bad clothes from my mom.

I feel like i shouldn't play because i know ya, plus i have c's cds already - but i will tell you what my favorite bday present. It was tickets to see Hootie at Hard Rock and dinner at Disney with V. He totally surprised me with them - i thought we were just going to dinner because he had already given me roses and jewelry. And no, he had these tucked away. Best.Night.Evah.

Girllll, I love me some country music. I used to watch Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters. I'm probably the only one old enough to remember that show;-(

My favorite birthday present was a few years back. Lance made a crossword puzzle and had me fill it out while at dinner at our favorite restaurant. When I finished it, I had to get a word from hints in the puzzle. Once I solved it, I would know what my gift was. He bought me a camera, lenses, and studio photography equipment because he knew how much I loved photographing the girls.

Happy birthday hot mama!

A couple years after my divorce I was struggling and working 1 full time and 2 part time jobs. I had to go to Vegas to work a business seminar and was going to be away from my kids on my birthday (Oct 20th) which really upset me. On my birthday the girl I was working the show with and I went to dinner at this steak restaurant across from the Bellagio. It was so busy they only had seating on the outside patio. We were eating and I was missing home and my kids and asking God when it would get easier. All of a sudden the water show started at the Bellagio ( I didn't know about it). It was so beautiful and the lights and music amazing. It was like God was saying, "I hear you my girl and I've got your back!" It just gave me the assurance that it would be okay in the end. Now both my kids are in college and amazing....it was definitely one of the best birthday presents ever. I love how God can take something hard and make it something awesome. He is good at that :)

Did I mention it is my 50th birthday???

My favorite birthday gift is not anything tangible, but when I get to hang with my best girls...i.e. a birthday brunch at a certain special someone's house :-) Happy Birthday week. Sooo sorry I have to miss out on the tea party tomorrow. Love you!!

Stephanie Marie said...

I came across your blog from a friend's page. So happy to now be following!

One of my favorite birthday presents was a pink Kitchen Aide hand mixer that my parents gave me. It makes me smile and think of them every time I use it. Happy early birthday!

My favorite birthday gift was from my fiance on my birthday a few years ago. Instead of a gift, I got a promise for a weekly back and foot massage. Truly a year of heaven!
Would love to win and love country music!

Happy B-day!

I am a huge country music fan. For a reunion, my family goes to CMA country music fest each year. Over 300 artists in Nashville. 4 days, 4 nights of music. You should check it out. It is AMAZING!

My favorite b-day gift was from when I turned 16. My grandpa gave me his '89 Honda Accord. I loved that old car like nothing else, even though everything broke on me. :)

Thanks for the awesome give-away!

Happy Birthday! My favorite present ever was the surprise cruise we went on a few years ago.

Amy Phillips said...

Happy Birthday!!! I am new to your blog, but I have enjoyed reading it. My favorite Birthday gift was my baby, Sammy (the cat)! It's her picture on my profile. I had just lost my other cat, and my husband surprised me with her. She was the love of my life...except for my husband, of course! I just lost her about a month ago, but I have so many great memories! I am a huge country music fan...do you mean there are people who aren't?? Enjoy your birthday week...I believe that birthday's should be celebrated for the whole month!!

Sarah Brooke said...

Happy happy birthday! My favorite present ever was a trip to Aruba for my 21st :)

Krista said...

I'm new to your blog, but thought I'd take this opportunity to leave my first comment and wish you a very Happy Birthday! My favorite gift ever: my husband bought me a star & named it after me (well, my nickname). I love it! And yes, I also love country music!

a H.I.T. said...

What a fabulous time to log in to blogger and catch up on my reading :)

Happy Birthday! What was your favorite present???

Mine would have to be my first present from Husby - a fabulous designer purse. I still love it!

And I'm a country fan and have been dying to learn more about the non-pop country songs out there...

Jessica said...

Okay... So I'm a huge country music fan. I mean, I'm from Alabama- How could I not be? So if I win send me your Big Daddy's CD!

My favorite birthday present I have ever received would have to be the John Hardy bracelet that my boyfriend gave me a couple of years ago. He had no idea what "John Hardy" was, his logic for purchasing that particular bracelet was because it looked "durable" ha. God love him...

Happy Early Birthday!!

Kado! said...

Happy "29th" birthday!!!!

....and I LOVE country music...and would LOVE a CD from your "favorite singer!"

*C said...

Hiii! Happy Birthday!!! I'm a follower on twitter (candelacandela) and just started reading your blog! My FAAAAVORITE birthday gift was a pair of diamond earrings my now fiance gave to me a few years ago. LOVE them because they were my first diamonds ever (he was replacing these brutal pair of plastic i had purchased at claire's- he hated them!) Great gift. Also, I am just getting into country music and would definitely give the cd a spot in my car stereo! :)

Debi said...

Hey Girl...can't wait to celebrate our Birthday's together on October 16th....I don't have tickets to Brad....but he's great and I know you'll have fun with Big Daddy. My favorite present was from my kids two years ago...I was given a Huge Cross Belt that is just beautiful and Matching cross jewelry. So FAB.....I hope I win...it's my Birfday!!!!

Chea said...

My birthday is actually tomorrow! It's my 30th! Wow, I never thought it would be such a big deal but wow is about all I have to say! The best birthday gift I've ever received is a bit hard for me to narrow down. Each gift that I have received is special and I have treasured so many but none has been as special as the handmade cards my Kindergarten students have made for me throughout the years. Each one has unique spelling, decorations and is made out of total love! I love my Kindergarten friends!! I also love country music. Growing up near Nashville, I have always enjoyed country music. Kenny Chesney tops my list and I also love the Zac Brown Band and Eli Young. I could go on and on with my lists here lately!!!
Great giveaway and Happy Birthday to you!!!

Amy Lynn said...

LOVE country music!!!!! I think my best birthday present ever was when the boyfriend took off work for my 21st birthday and surprised me by showing up at the family dinner. I had NO idea he was coming! As far as I knew, he was going to be on shift for 24 hours. It was an amazing gift... Hope you have something amazing happen on your birthday that you will remember forever :) Oh, and I'm a follower ;-)
