Getaway Trips, Birthdays and Giveaways

Hello bloggy friends!  It is Friday, January 28th.  Know what that means?  That means that this is the last day I'll be in my 30's.  That's right folks.  I'm turning the big 4-0 tomorrow.  Normally I would probably be really upset because I've been feeling a little old lately, but luckily it's also my getaway weekend with my Hubby so I'm sure my mind will not have time to dwell on the big 4-0. 

Hubby and I are leaving today to go to our favorite cabin.  My parents gave us a wonderful gift for Christmas - this trip and child care while we're gone.  WOO HOO!  Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas and Happy Anniversary to me!  I am very excited about our trip, but a little apprehensive about leaving my babies for two days.  I know they'll be well taking care of, but I don't leave them overnight very often so I'm a little out of practice. 

Know who else is having a birthday?  Holly Homebody's is Sunday, I believe.  AND Staci @ Lizard&Ladybug.  Staci is having giveaways all week in honor of her birthday.  Check it out!  Also, today's sponser for Staci's giveaway is none other than ME!  I'm very excited about it so y'all stop by and enter and tell her Happy Birthday while you're there! 

ALSO, in honor of my birthday, I'm planning giveaway of one of Tanya's Favorite Things (kind of like Oprah, who shares a birthday with me, by the way).  Check back Tuesday for details! 

Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend.  I know I will.  Be sure and stop by Staci's for the giveaway (from all week, not just mine).

  11. Tanya, I am so sorry that I missed this! I thought of you on your birthday, but I fear that I did not send you birthday wishes. So....*~*HapPy BiRtHDaY!*~*
    It looks like you had a fun trip. We've considered going to Eureka Springs, but have never gone. It sure looks nice!
