Today is my 35th birthday, I’m officially in my mid thirties. I’ve never concerned myself TOO much with the number, haven’t felt too much sadness about getting old—yet! I feel young, and that’s all that matters, right? I’ve always loved my birthday, it’s my one special day, and I like celebrating, and I think everyone should feel the same.
I had a fun idea to do a giveaway for my birthday, so asked my good friend and photographer, Jennifer Polson, to take some pics of me with balloons and confetti, then we ended up doing a whole bunch of other stuff in the shoot (check out her blog today to see her fave pics of our session). Why not share my 35 year old shoot with you all? Then…the 7 giveaways…
There were a lot of pics, so I asked my handsome hubby to pick out his favorites, this is what he chose:
I often take my kids on a small shopping spree on my birthday each year, I deprive myself of the joy of buying them all the latest and greatest all year long (even their birthdays, I do the parties and that’s all) except Christmas I indulge. So I see my birthday as a time to make ME happy by getting them a little something…a little Christmas in July. They like this idea, too.
Today, I’m going to give some gifts to YOU!! Because it’s 7-7, I’m going to select 7 winners, check out the fabulous prizes below from some of my favorite companies!
Winner #1: Ryobi Power Tools 18V Drill and Impact Combo, LOVE THEM!
Winner #3: Vintage Rose Wraps, $100 gift card to some of my favorite accessories
Winner #5: Jo Totes Camera bag of your choice as well as a photography Skype mentoring session with ME!
Now, don’t get overwhelmed with the steps below…IT’s my birthday (and I’ll have a lot of entries if I want to). Ok, just kidding, but really I want to have options for everyone that is plugged into different social media, AND I want my fabulous sponsors who donated all of these items to make some new friends, too. So please take a minute and follow them on facebook!!
Notice there are different points for different entries, the entry that counts for TEN is to pin images from yesterday’s post, click here for that info, or the link is in the entry form below, too.
