My Birthday and a New Giveaway!

Today was my birthday! Yup, another year has gone by. My daughters made it a very, very nice day for me! First, they gave me flowers. Then, the oldest one made me breakfast. Then they gave me presents. From Hannah (the youngest) I got a very pale pink denim jacket with a flowing printed tank top. She also brought me an "ice cap" (it is kind of like a frappe) from Tim Hortons (both of them are working there) when she got home from work. 

Alyssa (the oldest) got me a blue and white tie dye kimono cardigan, an owl printed bib apron and an original piece of artwork done by herself! Then Hannah took me to a movie (we saw the new Tarzan movie) and they both took me out to dinner. Oh, and Alyssa made me a yummy cheesecake!

They both took a lot of time to get me something they thought I would like and that meant a lot to me. They said that my dolls didn't need any more stuff  and that they wanted me to have something just for me! They made this day something very special for me. So much so, that I decided to do a birthday giveaway! We are leaving tomorrow to sign the lease on Alyssa's apartment for college this fall and then we are getting together with my family for a summer party. I won't be back until Monday, but I will let you know what is in the giveaway when we get back!
