But that was twenty years, five kids, and a whole lot of gained pounds ago.
These days, I can't think of a better way to celebrate my
Except, maybe, getting to sleep in late.*
Breakfast in bed would be kind of nice, too.**
Oh, and an afternoon of manis and pedis with my best girlfriend.***
Of course, no birthday would be complete without A GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!
How would you like to turn your child's room into a garden ? Or add a touch of chic to your living room? Maybe, if you're like me, you'd like to put some fun into your once-a-week pasta dinner. Well, here's your chance.
One lucky reader is going to win a $50 gift certificate to AllModern.com!
Here's how it works: Leave a comment on this post telling me the best birthday present you've ever gotten (None of those "Enter me!" comments...I'm going to make you work for it, but only a little. And since my husband reads the comments I get, it gives him good ideas of what not to get me, so you're really helping me out!)
If you really, really, REALLY want to win, you can get some extra entries by doing any (or all) of the following:
Follow me on Twitter (click on the little blue birdie in my sidebar) = 1 extra entry
Subscribe to my feed OR sign up for email delivery (just a little lower down than the blue bird in the sidebar) = 1 extra entry
Follow this blog with Google Friend Connect (just a teeny bit below subscriber info in the sidebar) = 1 extra entry
Tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this post (you know how to do that, right?) = 1 extra entry per tweet! (One tweet per day limit)
Post about this giveaway on your own blog with at least one link back to this post = 5 extra entries!!!
Leave a comment here for each extra entry you choose to do (and don't forget to leave a comment for each tweet!) Entries will be accepted between now and midnight on Friday, April 2nd. I'll announce the randomly-chosen winner on Saturday, April 3rd.
You can't win if I can't contact you, so please leave an email address in at least one of your comments!
This contest is open to U.S. AND Canada residents! (Woohoo, eh?)
Legal junk: This contest is void where prohibited (wherever that might be, and I feel sorry for you if you live there.) Each valid entry will be assigned a number in the order it was received. Winning number will be chosen by random.org. I'll include a screenshot of it when I announce the winner, just in case the winner happens to be someone I know in real life and you're tempted to think I cheated, because I'm not a cheater, so there...pbbbt. Winner is responsible for any and all taxes that may be incurred due to winning. I have received no compensation from CSNStores.com for holding this giveaway, monetary or otherwise, but I appreciate them giving me the opportunity to make one of you very happy.
