thirty.

As of today monday, I've officially entered into a new dawn, a new decade...the THIRTIES!!

Oh halleluia! awesome! amazing! brilliant! exciting!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME and to all my fellow January babes! :)



I'll keep the post short and simple!

My mom told me that she *almost named me Nicole, but Brittany won! She wished that her newborn daughter would have straight hair because (she, my mom, had super curly hair.). What do you know, I had super straight hair all up until about 3 years ago! SO straight, that my hair wouldn't even hold a perm for more than a couple weeks! CRAZYY!

My brother Alaska's bday is tomorrow was the 15th, and I miss him, so it kinda is a bummer that we can't celebrate our birthdays together as we have ever since we were little kids! Always A & B or B & A together :)

I am *so blessed to be able to be "here" today and live each day that God gives me to become a better person, to be more kind, to enjoy all of the lovelies that he has put in my life and to learn & grow as a person.

I am allllll about celebrating birthdays, not just my own, but everyone i know!! 
So, in honor of my special birthday and it really being a miracle that I've made it this far, thanks be to God, we are going to have a giveaway this week! (i don't usually have this many giveaways going in one month, but that's just how it happened).

Here are the awesome prizes destined to go home with three of you...

prize #1
(book not included) eye pigment in "rapture"
 

 Prize #2

 Prize #3
 

There shall be three winners! 3 is one of my fave numbers! The first person that random.org selects will have their choice of which 1 of 3 prizes they'd like most!

Now, here's a slice of cake for you and you and you! Thanks for celebrating with me!

Happy Birthday beautiful lady! 30 is a magical number :) & I love cupcakes so I think today I'll eat one for you!

I love that you are celebrating for more than just the day of your birthday. Life needs more celebrations.

My fave birthday treat would be a chocolate layer cake with raspberry filling between the layers, and a chocolate ganache frosting. Not that I have put any thought into it, or anything.

My "celebration" moment today is going to be going to Target and spending the gift card my youngest son gave me for Christmas. I had socks on my list - when I unwrapped his gift, it was a Target gift card with a huge note attached to it that said "For Socks Only". I must have looked befuddled, because he said "I went to the Ladies Sock Section. It was too overwhelming. There are alot of sock choices. I couldn't handle the pressure. So, you should go pick out your own." Ha ha. Of course, he is a 23 year old guy who only wears white sport socks, or, on RARE occasions a pair of black or brown dress socks. And, he is color blind - so I can see where a whole array of Ladies Socks in the midst of a Target would be well outside his comfort zone. Ha ha. We all got a big chuckle out of it when we were opening up our gifts.

Sorry this is so long! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONTH!!

Mmmm, my birthday treat is ice-cream cake from DQ soooo yummy!
When we were kids, it was a birthday tradition to get icecream cakes and and now, well it just don't seem like a birthday with out on.

Amanda said...

Happy 30th! A little late of course! But I am sure you had a great day regardless!! :)

My favorite treat is the day being all about me. I don't know why but Facebook posts saying happy birthday, cards, presents, surprises, etc. All make me love my birthday that much more!
