Birthday Giveaway! Birthday Giveaway!!

Don't you just love birthdays? I DO!

I have never been one to fret about getting older. I've learned so much each year and been able to experience so many wonderful things. I wouldn't change a thing. Well, perhaps I'd change a few things, but I wouldn't go backwards.

I once told someone who was lamenting the fact that she was getting older (she actually said she was "old" and I had to remind her that I'm "older" than she is) that she wasn't getting older, she was getting smarter. I like to think that way, and besides, isn't 40 the new 20? According to Courtney Cox Arquette it is!

Since I love love love birthdays so much and get so excited about them (almost to an obnoxious frenzy) I wanted to share a little birthday love with you all.

Are you excited? I am!!

So, lets see...

I've highlighted a few things recently that I love and thought that there could be nothing better than to actually share them with you!!

You may remember that I recently highlighted Molly Lou Gifts in my first Fabulous Friday (although at the time it was Friday Favorites - don't you think Fabulous Friday is a MUCH better title?). Since I am so in love with everything on her site (MLG - I think you need a wish-list feature that women could share with their sig. others, mmhmmm?) and have a few things in the works coming from her, I wanted to share with you all some MLG love!

Molly Lou has graciously offered to let the winner pick from any of the items in the Personalized Social Stationery Line! There are so so many cute things to pick from. I personally am ordering my very own Dots Monogram Note set as well as the Family Birdie Folded notes. I also adore the Bold Pink Chick Folded Notes.

The second part of my birthday giveaway is another Fabulous Friday find. Remember these beauties?Yes, that is right! The second part of this giveaway are these beautiful garnet cluster earrings from MadeByStella. These are handmade with an oval hammered gold filled pendant and small garnet nuggets. They measure slightly over 1 and 1/4th inch in length.

Who's excited??
