Happy Birthday Carrie Ann~Blogh0p and goodies

To celebrate, around 60 of Carrie Ann’s author and blogger friends are hosting a hop for two days!! Whoot! Each author is going to talk about their favorite birthdays or why they love (or hate) them.

What does that mean for you as a reader?

Well, each author is giving away a prize at their blog. AND we’re giving away TWO grand prizes.

1) A Kindle Touch

2) A $60 Amazon or Barnes & Noble Gift Card

Yep. You can comment on each blog and enter to win! How great is that? So on April 5th the hop begins and you have until 11:59PM on the 6th to participate!


I love them.

I guess I better, since my family’s run is coming up. My oldest is at the end of April, then we have the hubby, oldest daughter and other son in June.

Yup, I’m the odd one out all the way in December, LOL.

Why do I love birthdays so much? Well, it’s certainly not the age thing. I’m getting older, and so are my kids. Sheesh, time flies.

But in my family, birthdays are cause for eveyone to get together and spend the day talking, with good food and fun.

So, my Q4U: What’s your favorite part of birthdays (yours or family’s)

And for the giveaway:

I will choose 1 winner by Sunday evening from the comments section to recieve a $10 Amazon Gift card. To enter, Click “Newsletter” at the top of the page and sign up to recieve my newsletter.

**I only send it out every few months and I never spam anyone on the list.

In the comments, mark that you’ve signed up or are already a subscriber, and answer my Q4U. Make sure you leave your email address so I can reach you 🙂

Remember, to be entered in the Grand prize drawings, you can comment on as many blogs as you like, and each comment is 1 entry.

Good luck!

  25. i was already a newletter subscriber. i think my favorite thing about birthdays is spending them with my family. i just had my 43rd on 3/12 and decided that although i will continue to have them i am not going to get any older. i like this age, i would not be in my 20/30’s for all the money in the world and i prefer not to get older sooo! 43 it is. Yay!
