Birthday. {and winners!}

First things first... I forgot to announce the winners of the most recent giveaway.
Oops. Sorry! Allison Lahey and Michelle have both won a $50 gift certificate to!
Please email therustedchaininfo AT to claim your prize.

it's my birthday.

I thought I'd go into this next year a few sizes smaller, but that hasn't happened yet.
I really hoped to be in the 1XX's by now, but I'm not.
So I went to lunch with friends and had a burger and fries.
Maybe tomorrow I'll start moving toward that smaller size.

Every year on my birthday I take a self portrait.
I don't know why... I just do. Maybe to see the aging process? Maybe because someday I'll want to look back on the photos?
I don't know. It's just a thing I do.
I snapped a few on my phone earlier and this is the one The Baby picked for me to share on the blog.

I splurged and got myself a few birthday gifts. I get
wild and crazy sometimes...

A hairbrush (because I needed a new one badly.)
$3 Maybelline lipgloss.
4 packs of seeds to plant soon.
And an anti-aging treatment. One week until visible results? - Bring it on, Neutrogena!

If you're not already on our Facebook page, get there!
We're giving away 2 $50 there today too.

I'm sure you know, but it's also Dr. Seuss' birthday today. (and Jon Bon Jovi. And Karen Carpenter... and I'm sure lots of other cool people as well.)

"In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!” ― Dr. Seuss

Happy Friday, y'all!

I was at the drugstore today to pick up a card and nearly bought that same wrinkle stuff. Then I realized my skin's probably too far gone! LOL

Cheryl said...

May have to give that wrinkle repair a try.
Enjoy the day and the weekend,

I can joke about that...
eating disorders are no stranger to my family.
