Hey Hey, It's my Birthday! ((and YOU get to celebrate with me))


Today, I hit the big 2-6. It's downhill from here to my thirties, folks! If I wasn't 37 weeks pregnant, then there would be a silly photo of me jumping up in the air yelling, "new suits!" :)

Birthdays are so fun, aren't they? I love getting to look back at the previous year with a big ol' dumb smile on my face. I thought I'd celebrate with cupcakes and well...a giveaway...because what fun is partying alone? The winner of my birthday giveaway will win some of my favorite things: a $30 gift card to Anthropologie, a $15 gift card to Starbucks, a gorrrgeous statement necklace, some striped paper straws and some CANDY will be thrown in just for kicks. Meh-heh. Candy. You MUST be a follower via Bloglovin' or GFC in order to enter. Sorry to be so mean about it. It's my birthday so I get to make the rules, chumps. Sorry for calling you chumps. I got carried away. 

LET'S CELEBRATE!


((US only))
love.
