Beautiful you. {Giveaway!}

Today's my birthday.

Yeah, it was my birthday yesterday too. But it might also be today.
When I was growing up my brother had me convinced that I was actually born on the 3rd of March, rather than the 2nd, and that my parents celebrated it on the wrong day.
So every year I'd "play along" with the birthday stuff on March 2, knowing in my head that it was really March 3 that was my special day.
When the story finally came out, I think everyone in the family was confused.
My brother had himself so convinced of the lie that he's still confused by it.
Why?! Because big brothers are rotten. That's all.

So today I'm having cake. Again.
And celebrating. Again.
Because I can. Who says you can't have 2 birthdays in one year?

Do you remember recently when I posted about You being Beautiful? You are.
This idea just keeps rolling around in my head, and I finally created a necklace for it.

You're Beautiful necklace

My newly painted toenails ;-) even with socks on, they make me feel pretty!

Kim said...

My eyes... I guess. It been awhile since I've even thought about it. :-/

Kim said...

I DO agree with the toenails comment, though ;-)

Wendy said...

My smile. I really like my full-out smile!

Chelle (hanwayink) said...

hmmm , favorite physical feature? i'm gonna say my eyebrows - they have a great shape, allow me to give someone "the eyebrow" (à la Spock) & I have actually gotten compliments on them.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Debbie said...

Yep-definitely tough. I guess I have to say my cheekbones. ;)

Katie said...

Probably my eyes.

whew ... that was a tough question.

Peggy said...

My eyes they are like a mood ring they change from a bright green to a bluish green depending on my day.

kraftykash said...

I usually like my smile and ofcourse my hair. :) LOVE the way that necklace turned out. If I actually won something off your blog, I would probably fall down and mess my hair up. But I would be smiling!!

Sharon said...

My eyes, because I truly believe a person't beauty shines through from the inside out.
Happy 2nd birthday beautiful Beki!!
I agree BTW....big brother's ARE rotten! :)

Genevieve said...

Hmm this really is a tough one, but I would have to say my eyes.

Nathania Auger said...

i love my lips!!

Tara Jeles said...

I'm going to say my hair...it always bothered me before, it's super crazy thick and kind of curly. However I'm realizing now how many things i can do with it...although i'm always tempted to chop it all off ;)

Kristen said...

I think my favorite feature would have to be my eyes. I have been complimented in them since I was tiny. Now people are complimenting my daughter because she seems to have gotten the same eyes. It's so sweet and nice!

S Club Mama said...

Although some may not think of this as very beautiful and aesthetically, it's totally not, my stomach is beautiful. It's saggy and will never be a 6 pack (no matter what you claim, Jillian Michaels) but I love it. It's held 2 baby boys within its confines and is full of stretch marks and saggy skin (so sorry if this is scaring any wanna-be-mamas - they aren't all like this!). And underneath it's strong (there are abs UNDER all of this, I can feel them).

Anyway that was long sorry. lol

I am glad the LORD gave me blue eyes because in my immediate family, I am the only on, but my husband always tells me he loves my blue eyes and my greying hair.

Lindsey said...

At my house we celebrate birth week!

I'm 22 and have fine brown curly hair. As a child and teenager, I longed for straight hair. When I started college, I started to love it and now wouldn't change my hair at all!

I also love my smile! I think a persons smile can change their whole demeanor and bring joy to everyone around you!

I say my nose, although most people would say (not to my face) it's the worse. But, it's a family trait and I love my family more than anything.

My Eyes, I have amazing green eyes they look like cats eyes. You can tell when I'm mad through my eyes. Just the other day my daughter said mom your eyes look creepy as I had gotten upset with something she had done. Needless to say I wasn't mad anymore.

Girlfriend, I so want to win this! And I'd say my best physical feature, right now is my chest. Breastfeeding a hungry 2 month old has given me some curves I'd like to keep! : )

Lori said...

My hair!!!! I have really Great hair on most days! I don't have to color it and I'm 49!!! Yea!!! It grows incredibly fast and is really healthy. God blessed me with good genes. Today I got about 5" cut off it and a new style!!!
Go Me!
Blessings, Lori

Julie said...

Happy Birthday!!
I will say that my eyes are my favorite feature. Thanks for the giveaway!

Helen said...

My hair. I've always been critical of my own hair, maybe it's because it's been my best feature (confirmed by others). Happy birthday, by the way! How special that you "get" to celebrate it TWICE! Beautiful necklace! I hope I win!

Jill said...

the eyes have it...

I've always said that my favorite feature is my feet - they're tiny and cute at size 6 - but my husband has always begged to differ and maintains that they are really square blocks at the end of my legs ;)

Courtney @ Scraps and Scribbles said...

Happy Birthday!

I've always liked my eyes. They're an interesting mix of blue and green with this yellow line that goes around near the pupil.

Sherry @ Lamp Unto My Feet said...

Hmmm, my belly? I lost 20 pounds and have kept it off for 5 years.

hmmm, let me go check in the mirror.
.................................... okay, i've decided it's my teeth and lips. makes for a great smile!

Amy said...

I ♥ my SMILE! ☺

Kate said...

Beki, you never told us YOUR favorite physical feature! (But if I were you I would totally say your gorgeous hair!)

MY favorite physical feature would have to be my "pretty & impossibly blue eyes" (a quote from my dad)!

However, I am often complimented on my smile so it is a close second:)

Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia} said...

Beki, you're so sweet to give something to one of US on your {2nd} birthday! ;)

I like my eyes. Sometimes my hair. Sometimes it depends on the day...

Mindy said...

Probably the color of my hair - it's naturally blonde. Really needs cut right now though!

Amy said...

I've always felt like I had pretty good hair. Even when the stylist butched it my senior year of high school, my pictures still look decent.

Falen said...

My eyes. Specifically the color and how no one can really pinpoint what that color is.

Our Beautiful Life said...

I really adore my freckles... and my nose... and especially the freckles on my nose.

Danielle said...

My big hazel eyes. I used to dislike the color because they were different. Now I love them because they're different :)

Amy J. said...

My favorite is my belly. . . pretty atypical, I know, but it's full of stretched skin and stretchmarks from carrying my 3 beautiful gifts from above which included a set of twins. Did they stretch it out or what?! I love looking down and remembering the pregnancies and how the Lord brought us through some uncertain times during the twins' pregnancy. Never thought I'd say that about my belly but that is the reminder I am left which each day about God's goodness!

mmmgleisner said...

My hair - not quite as long as once - but still longer and auburn red and wavy!!!

Sarah said...

It would have to be my eyes!

Hope you have a good 2 day birthday! Heck why not spread it out for a week!

The MacDonald Family said...

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! My fav feature is my nose, it's tiny and just a little pointy - it's identical to my favorite aunt that passed away but lives on in my daughter whom I named her after. :)

Jessica said...

I guess I would have to say my favorite physical feature is my lips - they are full enough, but not too full ;) Thanks for the chance!

Thanks, Beki!!

Allen and Debby Graber said...

Beki - When I saw that necklace, it took my breath away. I would love to have one to give to my beauiful, chosen, treasured and loved daughter we adopted from Korea. Can I by one? Love it! You asked about favorite feature? My eyes because I am blind in one eye and I know how precious sight is. Also, I just laughed about the confusion about your birthday! Ha! Ha! Great idea to celebrate 2 days!

My favorite physical feature would have to be my skin. I've been complimented a lot on how smooth and young it looks and it's best in the summer because I'm able to tan easily... even using sunscreen! :) Thanks for another contest!

Vanessa {Bloom Right Here!} said...

That is a tough one, but I would say my blue eyes. I've gained weight, my skin is looking older, but my eyes remain the same!

My birthday is next week. Your jewelry would be a wonderful gift!

i often get compliments on having the softest skin ever, which is cool, i guess, but my favorite is my eyebrows - they're pretty full and dark and almost always have a lovely shape, which again is cool, since i rarely wear makeup, i prefer to let them thar eyebrows take center stage. that's kinda weird, huh?

newsprout said...

I would have to say my favorite feature is my smile. When I smile everything else lights up and looks beautiful. Since I am 7 weeks past chemo, 8 days past my mastectomy and a few weeks from starting radiation I am not feeling so beautiful right now, but a smile has the ability to make all things looks and feels beauitul.
