It’s My Birthday — Presents For You!

It’s my birthday but I’m giving you the presents!

Technically, it’s not my birthday yet — it’s this Saturday. I will be turning the young age of 43. Here’s where we jump right in to the honest talk: I’m not really a fan of celebrating my birthday. I think ever since I hit 30, it’s just been a day I’ve kinda wanted to skip. Thing is, my husband’s birthday is the day before mine (June 22), so skipping doesn’t really happen. I love celebrating his or the kids birthdays — anyone’s really — except mine. 

BUT, I’m trying to do something different this year. Instead of hiding and avoiding the fact that it’s my birthday, I’m going to celebrate it by giving to YOU!

It's my birthday but I'm giving you the presents! Come enter to win three chances for a Target, Amazon or Starbucks gift card!

That’s right, I’m calling it: Laura’s Favorite Things Giveaway!

I’m giving to you all of my favorite things! Now, I wish I could be like Oprah and give you all cars. But since my income is slightly less πŸ˜‰ , I can do the next best thing and share my favorite Oprah gif….


But wait, there’s IS something I can give you — gift cards to three of my favorite places! You know how this lady loves her Target. I think a box from Amazon arrives here about once a week. And Starbucks, let’s just say the drive thru almost knows me by name! πŸ˜‰ So those are my three picks for my birthday…and hopefully and little spending money to those places can brighten the day of three lucky winners.

I also wanted to do this little giveaway as a way to say ‘thank you’ for sticking with me on this blogging adventure.  It’s been a fun journey so far and when I look back over the years, I feel so blessed to do what I love everyday! I know that you haven’t ‘seen me’ much on the blog, but starting today…I’m going to change that too. πŸ™‚ I have a feeling 43 is going to rock!

  1. The best gift I ever received was a teeny tiny pair of diamond earrings from my parents when I turned 13. They were my first real jewelry and though my parents couldn’t afford much, they always managed to find a way to make our wishes come true.

  2. How fun and exciting. Happy Birthday!!! I love to have a party for others too and this is such a great way to celebrate.

  3. Well girl, Happy Birthday. When I turned 30 I was so glad I came to that age. Now I am 55 and glad I still am living. I was born with heart value issues and 9 years ago I had it fixed.
