Last weekend was my birthday and birthday week! I had such a great time hosting a series of 5 giveaways! I loved reading the birthday comments and stories from all of you. I laughed at some of the stories and felt the excitement of birthdays through your experiences too. 

Everything from surprise parties that went off without a hitch, to limo rides around town and all the favorite gifts--mostly homemade gifts. I love all the comments, thank you!

I've just tallied up the giveaways and emailed the winners...if I don't hear back from them, I'll draw another name. Hopefully you were one of the winners!

I love parties and we are going to move right into Valentine's day party fun!
