My Birthday's Coming and I'm Ready to Party

January 10th is my birthday, and not just any birthday...my 35th birthday. That's half of 70, a regular milestone. I'm never one to sulk about climbing that proverbial hill that people dread going over (except for year 27...for some reason that one hit me hard). In fact, I love celebrating my birthday. It is the day God chose for me to begin my work on this earth.

To celebrate my 35th, I'm going to throw a special bloggity bash right here on Becoming Me. Only I'm not going to just celebrate my birthday...I'm celebrating the whole week by giving a way a prize each day. I'm still lining up the prizes, but so far there will be gifts from Tea Traditions, From Me Tees, Isn't She Adorable, and Keri Wyatt Kent.

There will be one extra special day of the giveaway...a day that the competition will be narrowed just a tad. On that day a prize will be given to a blogger who takes the lovely button above (created by Shera) and links it to his/her blog. You can link it as a photo, but e-mail me if you perfer the code.

Hope to see you back for the fun!

AWW! SO sweet to want to give things away on YOUR birthday week. :) I'm not surprised at all though. :) Neat ideas. Birthdays are so much fun.

Fabulous - I'll be there! I turned 40 this past March and it was great. Each year is better - really!

Happy "upcoming" Birthday!:)

After reading what you said about turning 35 being half of 70, it occurred to me that I will turn 40 in August....that means I will be half of 80.....

*Sigh*

I will put this on my sidebar! I love parties...especially with meatballs and giveaways.;)

Merry Christmas!
God Bless,
Amy:)

Ooh, sounds like a fun way to celebrate your birthday!

Very sweet of you, when it's YOUR birthday. I grabbed your button.

I'll be 49 in May. So I'm nearly half of 100!!! I used to dread being "this old", but ever since I was diagnosed with CF I realize that each year is a gift. Actually, each year is a gift, anyway, but when so many with your disease don't live past 30 you really appreciate it more.

Oh,to be 35,again!
Personally,I would be lieing to you if I said "its not too bad getting older."

I turned 50 this last May and I'm not real happy with the aging process. But God has been teaching me that it's never been about the outward appearence but it's the heart that matters.

Make a big deal of your birthday! I get so sad when my birthday comes around and because I'm not a kid anymore, it's become a bit of an afterthought to celebrate. So next year, maybe I'll take matters into my own hands and throw a party!

P.S.He loves you.. said...

oh how fun!

I'll be back and that's a promise!

Becca said...

Sounds like fun!
For some reason 25 was a hard year for me. 35 was no big deal I also have a birthday in January and I'll be 36 and somethhow knowing that I will be closer to 40 than 30is difficult to swallow.
I remember asking my Grandmother when she was 80 if she felt it was possible that she could be 80 (she was always so young at heart) and she responded it did seem possible at all!
