Woot! It's My Birthday! And I'm *cough cough* THIRTY!!!

Photobucket
Happy Birthday Future Me! xoxo, Sweet Sixteen Me!

Unfortunately, the *cough cough* in this post title is very literal. I was hoping the birthday gods would humor me and I'd get a fantastic night's sleep with a subsequent return of good health, but alas, no such luck. I do feel better than yesterday, though, so hey, progress!

Ok, OK!!! I know everyone's eager to hear who won the Target gift cards. So without further adieu, congratulations are in order to Someone ($20 gift card), Denise ($10 gift card), and Kathy ($5 gift card). Ladies, you have until the end of the day on Monday (8/3) to respond to me (I am sending emails), if I do not hear from you, a new winner will be chosen.

Now, I would be remiss if I didn't tell you that I plan on celebrating this entire month. Because, HELLO?, it's my birthday month. My THIRTIETH birthday month. Not only that, but it's my blogging anniversary (bloggiversary?) month too! And so... yes... one more contest! Only one winner this time, but it's a biggy. I have a $100 Spa Finder gift card* for one lucky reader. Again, this contest is sponsored by ME. For YOU. Because, well, I'm pretty awesome like that.


How to Enter:

- Entries will be received in the comments section of this post. All entries will be verified. You MUST leave a valid email address with EACH entry, I will not hunt you down!

  • First entry: Leave a comment telling me you want to win (and, you know, feel free to add how much you love me)!

- Additional entries:
  • Tweet about this contest and leave a separate comment with the link to your tweet (not to your twitter account, just to your contest tweet). - one extra entry
  • Blog about this contest and leave a separate comment with the link to your blog post. - one extra entry
  • Follow or subscribe to this blog and leave a separate comment stating that you do so. - one extra entry
  • Enter the JRegan Photography giveaway and then come back and leave a comment letting me know you did. - one extra entry
  • Enter the Dream Custom Artwork giveaway and then come back and leave a comment letting me know you did. - one extra entry
That's a total of SIX possible entries!!!

But, wait! You can do this EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! So, it's more like a total of six BAJILLION(ish) possible entries!!!

The contest will run from now until Monday, August 31, 2009, midnight Orlando, Florida time. Winners will be picked by random number generator and will be notified by email (on or about) Tuesday, September 1, 2009. Winners have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen. U.S. addresses only, please.

I reserve the right to cancel or change this contest at any time for any reason. This contest is void where prohibited.
_______________________________________________________________
*I'm totally not going to lie to you... it's a regift. I won the Year of the Mom contest and have since learned that my beloved pedicure place doesn't take these gift cards (ok, so, turns out it's not technically a spa... who knew?).

Happy birthday, lady. At least you can't over-indulge in your current condition, right?

Well, you could over-indulge in FOOD. YOu should do that.

Happy Birthday! 30 is not hard. 31 is because you are one year removed from leaving the 20's. But I have to say that three years in and it's been the best three years of my life.

Happy Birthday:
I'd like to win because I have lots of arthritis and nothing helps me feel better than a massage.

susitravl said...

Woo Hoo - Happy Birthday, April!! I got a Spafinder gift card a few years ago and used it to get the works - haircut, color, massage, facial, and some reflexology thing that seemed kind of pointless. Feel free to regift me with this card so I can do it all again, minus the lame reflexology.

Hope you had a great day yesterday. I'm all for this birthday month thing - wonder if I can talk my husband into spoiling me for the whole month of Sept?!?!

Jenni Jiggety said...

Happy Birthday!!!!!!

DiPaola Momma said...

Um, hells yeah I want/NEED to win as I hit *cough, hack, choke, sputter, gulp* 38 last month!
