Happy Birthday to Me - A Month of Giveaways!



Today I turn 30. I gotta say, I have been dreading this day for the past couple of years. I never thought I would turn 30. To me, "grownups" are in their 30s and I certainly don't feel like a "grownup". I mean, when did that happen? :) So, to lighten the blow of turning 30, I wanted to give you all some gifts for the entire month. Each week a new giveaway or multiple giveaways will be posted. I would say that giving gifts is more fun than receiving them but then I would be lying (well somewhat), but since I got a laptop from my mom and a mountain bike from the hubs, I'm pretty set in the gift realm, so it's time to give you all some very cool giveaways!

Starting us off this month is my new contest co-host, Ashley, from After Nine to Five
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm Ashley, owner of the shop and blog After Nine To Five. My blog is a lifestyle blog where I talk about being self-employed along with my love for life, food, and photography. In my shop, you can find a variety of accessories as well as e-books, graphic design packages, and consulting. Through November 15, I'm having a blog party to celebrate one year of being an entrepreneur, my one year blogiversary, and six month of being married. Use the code HEREFORTHEPARTY to save 25% off on items in the shop!

Awww turning 30 was a dread for me too... but you know what - it's been great! I feel so much more confident, healthier, sexier now in my 30's than I did in my twenties. It's all about life skills and experience. Nothing drops off/droops/stop working in your 30's so embrace your 30's and have fun !!!!!
Oh and happy birthday, LOL

I hated turning 30 too, but I can say that the 30's were so much better than the 20's that when I turned 40 this year, I didn't even care. It's so hard to choose a favorite from Ashley's shop, because I've been wanting a camera necklace, but I love owls too, and that owl necklace is so cute. Can I have two favorites? :)

Danelle said...

And I follow your blog. I really thought I already did, but I didn't, so I do now. :)
