My Birthday Giveaway!

Happy Birthday to Grandmayellowhair! Happy Birthday to Maggie! Happy Birthday to Ms. Pearl! Yep today is my birthday and what better way to celebrate than to have a giveaway for the best friends in the whole world. So grab a cupcake and let's get the birthday party started.

Remember my trip to Warrenton/Round Top Festival well I collected a few things out there that I thought would be great to give away to you on my birthday. At first I thought I would take pictures of the goodies and show them to you today but now I have decided it should be a surprise gift! I know that’s not very nice of me but you have to play along because whose birthday is it anyway…lol

I will show you one gift that I am giving the winner but just one. Who knows as weak as I am before the giveaway is over with I might show other gifts in the future post.  If you win I think you will like whats in the box besides the perfume.

This is a Vintage Bottle of Evening in Paris still in its orginal box! Actually I think this bottle came out the year I was born. Very very old ...!

Let’s make this simple because I need simple in my life right now. All you need to do to win is leave me a comment on this post before midnight May 31, 2010 central standard time and be a follower. I will use the Random Generator to pick the winner.

As all of you know I have been having a pity party for myself for two weeks now and so while resting today I thought I should go through some of my mothers things in a couple of boxes that I have not had the heart to open since she passed away. She had some old pictures of me and what better day to show you than on my birthday! So laugh like I did as you view my pictures.

Not sure how old I am here but don't you love my boots with a dress. And that's the way everybody dressed at Warrenton. Who would of thought that Maggie started the fad. lol  I have this lamp of my grandmothers so I was thrilled when I saw me in a picture with it. Guess what the lamp is pink...

On the back of this my mom wrote that I was 9 years old and 4th grade.  I can not tell you how I hated the way she kept my hair short and permed.

I skipped about 8 years and lots of curly hair to show you my graduation picture.  I am 17 here.

Fast forward again four years where I would be 21 years old in a few days...I got married two days before my 21st birthday. Maybe I should put this wedding dress in my gift box for the giveaway. lol ...I loved pink back then too...notice the pink roses. We were actually married on Mother's Day! I should do a post about me trying on this dress a few years back. OMG what a hoot that turned out to be. Espcially since this was a size 3 or 5 and we want talk about the size I was when I tried to put it on.

Not sure what year this is I am guessing I was probably 31 or 32...(not much older now) lol
Hope my kids don't see this post.  The boys hated how I dressed them a like. How I wish I could go back to these days. They just grow up way too fast.

And here we are all grown up!

Thanks for joining me down memory lane! 

Also wanted to share a early birthday gift from Annie! She sent me two autographed copies of Good Housekeeping where they did a whole page about her in their June Issue.  She signed one for me and one for Kaci.
 Annie thank you for doing this for us. I can not tell you how much this meant to me to get this in the mail and I adore how you put it to Grandmayellowhair. You are just a precious angel honey and I love you.
Check my earlier post I wrote about her being in Good Housekeeping! It is one you will really enjoy reading.

Is this not precious how she did these. I am thrilled and I know Kaci will be too.

Thanks for spending my birthday with me and good luck winning my surprise box giveaway!

Love to all
