In Case You Missed It... #InstaBirthday and a #Giveaway


I had one heck of a birthday, thank you to everyone for the comments, texts, Tweets, Snapchats, and my amazing friends who were a part of it [I love saying that and knowing my IRL read this now, too :) ].  Here's a look at my day:

Coffee cake, lunch at the river, and cards from my staff and kids at work

SO much birthday and engagement love!

Dinner with amazing family and friends

 
And I even got to blow out candles twice in an hour!  In case you were wondering, that cake on the right is my family's amazing recipe - check it out here!

In other news, in case you forgot, yesterday was also Mean Girls Appreciation Day, "It's October 3rd."  In the spirit of that, I thought this Buzzfeed article was hysterical and relevant.

Lastly, since my day was nothing short of fantastic, I thought I'd share the celebration with you in the form of a little giveaway: $10 to iTunes [that way you can buy Mean Girls ...or anything else you wish, I guess].

Oh, and shameless plug, you'll notice there are a few extra possible entries if you sign up for the new link up Amanda and I are starting: Kitchen Mix Up.  Let's be honest, we will be reaaaaally disappointed if you sign up and don't even attempt to try it, so please only use those entries if it's something you're really interested in.  Another bonus - if you do link up with us at the end of the month, there will be another giveaway for you from Amanda and me!

Awww, looks like such an awesome birthday and HOLY CARDS in the dining room!

Shannons face in that picture is pretty great. She looks like those pugs on Pinterest where they caption something about the pug always forgetting something really important that they were supposed to do.

Somehow I missed your linkup post originally! It sounds like such a fun idea. I need to really think about if I can pull something together :)

Hmm...I can't think of my favorite birthday gift--I did get Avonlea this year less than a month after my birthday, so does that count?

Happy birthday, Meg!!

The best birthday present I received was my 40th birthday - my hubby took me to Magic Kingdom and it was PERFECT. We go a few times a year, but he hates big crowds - and my birthday is on New Year's Day. So yes, one of the top three most crowded days of the year. Hope you have an awesome birthday!

Definitely when I got my first computer when I graduated high school.
