The "I'm getting old" Giveaway...

Well, my birthday is this coming Sunday, and it's official. I'm getting old.  I've always been one of those people who every birthday says, "Geez, I'm getting so old." in hopes of someone saying, "Oh, you're not old!  You have so much life left to live!"  Well, you know you're officially getting old when you pull your same old fishing tactics and you no longer get that response.

For example...this weekend I made the trek to Fayetteville to cheer on the Hogs in their victory (or shall I say "crushing victory") against Auburn. ( I apologize to any Tiger fans out there.)  Of course, after our big win, my friends and I decide to go out to a bar after the game to celebrate.  This is where my attitude about my birthday abruptly changed.  My friend Jen and I pop in to the ladies' room and there we encounter the two most annoying college girls on the planet.  No joke.  Usually I enjoy chatting it up with current college girls and reminiscing about my college days, but these girls were absolutely atrocious.  After listening to them talk for about 15 minutes about how "old" they are getting I decide to interject that if they think they're old now at 21, then wait until you're on the verge of your late 20's.  I swear, when I told them this, it was like I told them I was terminally ill with cancer, or my dog just died. I believe their exact response was, "Oh my god.  That is so sad.  You don't look a day over 21, I swear." 

I don't think that I realized that turning 27 was such a tragic event until Saturday evening.  Wow.  I guess I should be preparing all week for this.  Maybe we should call in the National Guard or something?  I'll get on the phone with my attorney after this and have him send over my last will and testament for review.  Geez.  I have a lot of living to do before this Sunday.

I feel that this card really captures the spirit of my birthday this year...

Ok, enough about my birthday shenanigans.  It's time to get on with the birthday week giveaway.  In honor of my day of birth, I will be giving away 3 separate items!  That's right 3!

  1. I most want the gift certificate, as there are several things I'm eyeing, and I would feel less guilt spending money on them if I had a discount like this! (Happy birthday, and trust me, you are not old. I am 42. I am old.)

  2. I love the necklace. But anything would be awesome. Happy Birtday


  3. I would like any of these things, but I especially love the scarves!

  4. Ummm, the scarf I would REALLY love but as I have said before, it just doesn't get cold enough here! So, I would LOVE the gift certificate so I can browse through your wonderful items and get something that I can wear at anytime out here in the desert!

  5. I want the $20 gift certificate because then I could get anything I want on your site! Also, my 27th birthday is coming up too!! A gift certificate would totally be an early present. :)

  6. Love all of these! I think I'd love to have the gift certificate the most, though. Tough decision. Great blog this week! It came back with a bang!

  7. I want the red scarf! Happy birthday!

  8. Love all of the items! I am thinking a scraf would come in very handy! Maybe it could make me look younger so silly girls in bathrooms would not feel sorry for me because my age :) happy early birthday!!!


  9. This is a hard choice but I think I am lusting after the scarf the most!! Love it!

  10. I think the scarf... Even though the necklace is adorable and I definitely wouldn't turn down a gift card :)
