Happy Birthday to Me!!!

I love my birthday (for the most part...there have been a few occasions where I had to share it with graduations and the like). Happy, happy....I'm not ashamed of my age either....I am 38 today. :) We just got back from my birthday dinner....we went to Outback Steakhouse. No, I didn't have a steak...I got the Bloomin Burger. I've been craving a hamburger.....no, not pregnant...that would be a tad awkward. :) It was good, but I couldn't finish it. Billy was pretty good..he amused himself with a small plate and melting ice cubes. I got two kinds of dessert to go...it's my birthday and Billy will help himself to one or both of them. Well, in honor of today.....I want to have a giveaway. I like giving stuff out on my birthday......I used to do it all the time. One of the best things I've ever won on blog giveaways was a flat rate box of just stuff. I love shifting through box lots....you never know what you'll get. If I ever get over my fear of buying something for way too much...I'd like to go to an auction some day. I digress....I will mail one lucky winner a flat rate box of surprises from my stash...don't worry I didn't give all the good stuff to Ms Rita...there is plenty to go around. So just comment on this post and in a week I will pick a winner. I know I should make it more difficult, but I don't have the brain power to come up with something clever right now. See....aren't you glad you actually read the post without a photo. :) Good Luck. It is time for some carrot cake...yummy, yummy.


  1. Happy Birthday!!!
    Hope it's a fun one.

  2. Happy B-Day. And boy do I understand that burger craving sometimes! And we could meet in the middle somewhere and go to an auction, but, umm, you would have to, 1) hold my wallet, and 2) make sure I didn't get a paddle, lol. I have no control, sigh.
    Speaking of which - if you pull my name - pick again. As a matter of fact when I get my act together I might have you do another one of these and I will send a box!

  3. Happy Birthday Wanda!! Hope you had a really fun day of celebrating...and 38?? Your time has only just begun - try turning 48 (that's me in a few weeks)!!
    Have a great weekend....

  4. Happy Birthday Wanda!!!! Outback sounds like where I would want to spend my birthday too......love the bloomn onion!!!! And I did read the post......even without a picture!!!!

  5. Happy Birthday Wanda!!! I love reading your posts with or without photos :) Can't wait to see you in November.

  6. Happy Birthday Wanda! My birthday was June 1st. I didn't realize our birthdays were so close and dang you could be my daughter. I didn't realize you were so much younger than me. I actually always think of myself as 35... but since I'm 54... perhaps I need to readjust that.

    And this sounds like a great giveaway... a box of stuff... who doesn't love stuff.

    Happy Birthday.... I hope this year is a blast.


  7. Hi Wanda, Happy belated birthday! Please sign me up for a chance to win, I am with you, there is nothing better than a box full of what-nots!
    Thanks for the post about my giveaway & you're in x4!
