birthday love for YOU


*****giveaway closed*****
congratulations, jacky!


I celebrated my birthday a little early tonight. I'm flying to California Friday morning for my sweet cousin's wedding... without kids. I'm getting my nails done, wearing fancy shoes, and  squeezing my giant belly into a bridesmaids dress. 
So tonight Nick and the boys treated me to pizza and chocolate cream pie, treats and magazines for my plane ride 
and lots of handwritten cards from my oldest. It was all pretty sweet.
I also get to spend 36 hours with two of my favorite bloggy friends in Newport Beach to finish off the trip. 
I feel like all that makes for a pretty good birthday weekend.

You know what else makes an awesome birthday?
This giveaway. So many birthday goodies for one lucky winner!
Some of my favorite shops, run by my favorite ladies, have all donated something lovely for a big ol' birthday giveaway. 
Go ahead and drool. And then throw your name in the hat.
I'm going to choose a winner on Tuesday - so get ready!
