The BIG 30 Gift-away!

So it's official!  I have turned the big 3-0 today!!!  WHOO RAH!  I have always heard of people dreading turning 30, but I am so excited about being part of the Thirties club, I think people think I am nuts.  My twenties were great... a lot happened in my twenties that I loved {don't worry, I am not about to list out what happened in the last ten years of my life.}, but I am ready for a new decade of my life and I know it is going to be FANTASTIC!


So, to kick of my thirties... I went bowling... along with some friends and family.  We had so much fun... I think I am going to have to do this monthly. 

Who says turning 30 can't be fun?


In celebrating me turning 30 today, I am going to give someone else a special Birthday gift from me.  All I am going to tell you is that you will not want to miss out on receiving this gift.  {HINT: It might involve some fabric and some sweets}  And all you need to do is leave me a comment and you are automatically entered in the drawing.  EASY PEASY! 

To make it even more fun {for me} I am going to stretch my birthday out until Monday night at midnight.  I will announce my birthday gift winner on Tuesday, April 6.

So, who will be my lucky birthday winner?

  9. I think stretching it out to April 6th is a GREAT idea (since that is MY birthday). I think you would have to agree that all the people born in the first week in April are the greatest people!!! Happy Birthday to YOU!!! Enjoy that 30th year... I'll be FORTY 2 - can you believe that?? I wish I was going through my 30's again... you will have a great time!! ENJOY!!

  21. Happy Birthday! I remember when I thought 30 was old, and now I think 30 is young (I'll be 42 this month). 30 is a great age - old enough to be a "grown up" and young enough to play with your kids. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Happy Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy Birthday!! I'm not quite to that 30 mark yet...I hope I can be as positive as you are when I do!

    ReplyDelete
  26. woo hoo! Happy Birthday! 30's never bothered me...I really thought I was 29 for two years....how embarassing when my husband pointed it out and I counted up the years and he was right I had already been 30 all year!
    Now we won't talk about what year I am approaching in about a week...

    ReplyDelete
  27. From one Aries to another, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I will be turning the big 3-5 next Friday!!

So once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Your thirties are gonna rock!!
