Remember growing up how the "BIG" birthdays were 13, 16, 18, and 21. After 21, though the big ones become the decades: 30, 40, 50 and so on.
I know that there will be plenty of jokes and harrassment today, so let me be the first to say that today (March 13th) I am officially the BIG 3-0! Gone are the days of my reckless youth. No more tattoos, body piercings, riding ATV's, drinking beer, wearing short shorts, going barefoot outside, wearing bikinis, catching frogs in the mud, loud music...
Ok those of you that know me are laughing so hard right now that you are about to pee yourself. For those of you that have had a few children (like me), you have peed yourself and are searching for clean pants!
I plan to continue all of the above (except body piercing, because I can't think of anyplace else I'd like to have a stranger put a needle. I know some of you can't believe I thought of places that I wanted a needle. But, seriously, it's expensive and I'm done). The only things different now that I'm turning 30 and not 21 is: I don't have a bunch of friends wanting to buy me a drink. It's time to start using the anti-wrinkle creams. I have to dye my hair now due to grey hair, not roots (I'm beginning to match my bedroom walls).
To celebrate my birthday, and the beginning of spring, I'm doing my first ever blog giveaway! I will close the giveaway on March 20th. So if you would like to recieve the gifts below, please leave me a comment. I'll randomly choose a number and announce the winner on March 21st.
First, you have your choice of a handmade baby hat. Either the Spring Chick cap which is about a 3-6 month old size.Or the Basic Navy in newborn size.
Even if you aren't having more children, there are always grandchildren or that unexpected baby shower. And a handmade hat makes a great gift.
Second, I'm doing a re-gift. I received this from a former secret prayer partner. She is a wonderful and strong lady. She battled cancer, she lost her husband and she is still the sweetest lady! She was my prayer partner twice and gave me some amazing gifts. This gift is beautiful, but I've never used it, have no place to display it, and it's just not me. I feel bad that it sits up above my kitchen cupboards, and I don't have the heart to just sell it at a yard sale. So giving to one of you seems the best solution.
It is really pretty, and hand painted. These colors are perfect for Easter. So if you would like to receive these two items, please leave a comment for me, and help celebrate my birthday!
