Melissa's Big Birthday Giveway!

In honor of my friend's 40th, she has an amazing giveaway on her blog. You can check it out here along with the details. One request is that you promote it on her blog or tell how you will talk it up online if you don't have a blog of your own. Another is to tell about your favorite birthday gift in the comments section...what a fun way to reminisce about a favorite birthday of the past. Thanks for the flashback, Melissa!

Wanna know how I spent my 40th Birthday?
Fleeing hurricane Francis....9hrs. to get to Savannah...not exactly what I had in mind. The upside? When we continued on to Cumming, GA where my sister-in-law and brother-in-law live, we got to visit with our old friends and neighbors in Sugar Hill. So I got to spend it celebrating with special people after all, just not the way I thought it would turn out. Anyway, nothing could top my 30th surprise party. My DH took me to dinner with my parents, then had all the neighbors waiting poolside at a catered party on the deck when we returned from dinner and drove up to the pool. Even bigger surprise was walking down the stairs to the pool seeing my Confirmation picture (with white robe and little red beenie hat) blown up to poster size and signed by all in attendance. Needless to say, I ran back up the stairs in horror. Turned out to be a very fun night and I also found out that I was expecting our 2nd child. So I couldn't celebrate the way everyone was intending for me to, but had a real blast chatting and doing karaoke with our friends!

Do you have a favorite birthday memory to share? Tell me about it in the comments section.

Tomorrow I will post a photo of my favorite birthday gift! Until then...
