you say it's your birthday!?

it's my birthday too, yeah!
and i've already been spoiled.
i had a bit of a pity party last night wishing i was closer to home and could spend the day with friends and family. but then my husband made the world right and gave me some presents early and reminded me i'm already home. (and that home is where your heart is.)
oh yes, he did get me this beauty. isn't she pretty?
yes, i whine and complain about how "unfair" it is to be so far from the ones i love and to be living the crazy, unpredictable, completely out of the norm life that we live right now. but the truth is, i have it pretty good. a loving husband and family, 2 to-die-for-cute boys, a business i love, our health, i could go on and on. i am truly blessed.
happy birthday to me.

P.S.
want to give me a present? (you know you do!) i'd love to get to 1,000 twitter followers. i'm over halfway there. but i need your help. what's in it for you?
don't worry, you scratch my back, i'll scratch yours. promise.
how about this?
this is by far the biggest giveaway i've ever done! think of the gifts you could give yourself or others! (i won't judge) had your eye on a modern pearl necklace? know someone who would die for a rosette bracelet this christmas? this is your chance!!!
every time you tweet, facebook, blog about this contest, come back here and comment and your name will be added to the hat to be chosen for the big fatty prize. obviously, the more you spread the word, the more chances you'll have!
this contest will be open until we reach 1,000 followers. as soon as I get there, I will choose a winner!
will you help me? awww, shucks.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Glad you got a little piece of Cali to go with it! I totally get the being far away from home and wishing family was near~I'm at 6 1/2 years away with no sight of that changing. And, my visits back home are only once a year now....sad, but life I guess. Happy day to you!!!
