Well it’s here. The day you’ve been waiting for all week…my BIRTHDAY! Have I talked about it enough yet? ;) Thing is, I firmly believe, especially as we get…ahem…older, that we shouldn't ignore birthdays. We should celebrate them and enjoy and take advantage of a day that can be all about what YOU want to do. Or in this case…me.
All that being said I really don’t run around all week with arms flailing telling everyone it’s my birthday. I save that for you all here on the blog. ;)
Blogging has been a blessing in my life for more reasons than I can count, but one of the biggies right up there at the top is my friend Chris. She’s truly a best friend now – I have a few of them and they all come from different times of my life. This girl is from this “season.” Otherwise known as the OLD season.
She’s a blogger, teacher, momma, wife and to top it all off, an amazing decorator. I want to move in to her house:
Amazing right? I know.
And of course her daughter’s room is so fun and sweet:
The thing is, we have the same birthday. Sisters from another mother, in so many ways! But she’s 40 today (choke, gah, cough) and I’m only 38. Don’t worry Justa, age ain’t nothin’ but a number. As far as you know.
So today, just like last year, we celebrate by sharing how weird, yet boring we are:
Seriously, it took us like two months to come up with ten (somewhat interesting) things about ourselves. Coming up with ten last year hurt our brains so doing it again was nearly impossible.
The whole somewhat interesting part is relative, but we did come up with some. This year they’re true/false so even easier! We aim to please.
The person who gets the most/all right wins $100 to Tarjay from us:
I know…lots of giveaways on the blog this week. It’s my birthday so I can.
Just answer these five questions here and then visit her place and answer five more. We’ll pick a winner at the end of the week. Here’s the details:
Take the quiz here (remember your score!)
Take the other half of the quiz at Justa’s site here.
When you finish with her quiz, leave your score (out of 10) in the comments section of her blog. That will count as your entry for the giveaway.
Have fun and be sure to tell Chris hi for me! And remind her how old she is while you’re at it.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes all week, I really do appreciate it. You guys are so wonderful!
