A really quick post since I'm at work, but today is my birthday!! Don't even ask how many years....but, yes, I woke up feeling each of those 16,436 days (when you count leap years) in my aching body. But the advil has kicked in now, and I'm looking for an excuse to throw a party! I haven't offered any blog candy lately so why not today???
Up for grabs is a $15 gift certificate to the Scrap Treasures store. Quite honestly, I'm tired of shopping and trying to find the perfect gift. So I'd rather let you pick out what YOU want! (and this way I don't have to force myself to go stand in line at the post office **wink-wink**)! All you need to do is post a comment telling me anything birthday related. Do you have any birthday traditions? A favorite gift you received? Some kind of food you love to have on your birthday? Anything!
Leave your comment before 6PM CST on Wednesday, Dec 19th, and we'll draw a winner shortly thereafter. I'll email the winner a coupon code worth $15 for ANYTHING in the Scrap Treasures store.....I know some of you have your eye on one of those yummy December kits.
Now....to share my tradition. Actually it's my dad's tradition, but I'm so happy he still does this. I've now been out of my parent's house for ummm.....28 years I guess. And every year on my birthday, the phone rings at 5:30AM. You see I was born at 6:30AM on the East Coast. Now I live in the Central Time Zone, but my 83-year-old father always calls me at 6:30 Eastern Time. I think 2005 was the only year he missed. Clark was 10 weeks old at the time, and my mom convinced him not to interrupt my sleep since I probably hadn't had much of it anyway with a newborn. LOL But that is why I never set my alarm clock the night before my birthday.
