It’s My Party



Today we went here:

Baltimore from the Water

(Baltimore for those who don’t know.)

And rode this:

Seadog Cruise in Baltimore

And we saw this:

Butterfly by fish tank

All because of my birthday!

Presents are a part of a birthday celebration so I thought I’d invite all of you to join the party!  You have a chance to win a $45 gift card from CSN Stores.  They have EVERYTHING.  You can get modern bedding, kitchen chairs (like we did a few weeks ago) or even luggage.  You would have a whole $45 to spend on whatever!

Just leave a comment on here telling me what you would like to get.  (It might also be polite to wish me a happy birthday, seeing as how it IS my birthday today.)

As a bonus entry, you can go vote for my picture at Parenting By Dummies.  I’m a finalist!  Just come back after you vote and comment to let me know how much you love my picture.  Oh, be sure to say that you voted too!

Contest ends one week from today, September 20th.  I will announce the winner on the 21st.  And you can come back and comment (and vote!) once a day until next Monday.

Happy Commenting!


PS- You might come back tomorrow for ANOTHER present.  And the next day for another.  Because I want to give away 3 presents for each decade.  :)

    Happy Birthday! I’m sorry I didn’t get your card mailed. It’s on top of my fridge. Typical for me, unfortunately. I did go vote for your pic. It’s very cool.

    Love Aunt Lisa

    P.S. Now you can’t be trusted to use a phrase from your dad’s time frame!! (Actually, a little bit old for him but he’s close).

    Happy Birthday to you! Is that why your mom was visiting? That would be a perfect birthday gift. Can’t wait to hear about all your fun birthday activities. In keeping with the birthday theme I would probably use the gift card to buy Logan some birthday presents. His birthday is next month. I can’t believe he is going to be four!

    Happy happy birthday!!!! I hope you had a wonderful day :)

    What would I get at CSN? No idea…there is too much to choose from. If I win I’ll have to spend some time poring over the website.

    Happy Birthday Safire!
    (Please say Hi to Juice for me, we met long ago when I visited at BYU… and again when Fred was a new baby ;-)
    I loved your picture and went straight from Lindy’s site to vote for it. I however ignored the “do not enter her give away” (I figured if she meant it, she would not have made it a link to your site, eh?) because if I win it I can use it to get something nice for Lindy and it will almost be like she won! So this gives her another chance. (She will be 32 on the 5th of Oct, even tho’ I think she is claiming to be 28 currently. Some people’s moms!)
    All the best, today and in the year to come. NICE photograph.

    I’d never heard of CSN stores until now. Wow, so much to choose from. I ALWAYS buy things for the kids, and NEVER buy things for myself, so I would probably have to get something for me this time . . . maybe some shoes? And, I can’t forget to say Happy Birthday!!

    So did you go to Ft McHenry??? Since that is the first picture I hope so. I love to go there. I already said fb happy birthday and you know nothing is true unless it is on fb! But Happy Birthday again! I had never seen that site before. Of course my first search was for books:) but instead I love the cool toys. I think the “boys” would love these as stocking stuffers .

    I voted for your picture. I love the swings too! I love the way the light plays in the picture. I never get that right.

    Happy birthday! We still need one more carseat before the babies get here, so I would probably use it towards that.
