friggin’ sweet birthday giveaway

birthday giveaway

It’s hard to believe, but today I’m officially 38 years of age (Nope! Not ready). Despite my shortcomings, I’m proud of the woman I’ve become and the things I’ve learned on this journey, but of course there are many things on my bucket list I’ve yet to cross off. Here are just a few off the top of my head (Bryan probably knows these all by heart, as I’ve been saying them to myself and out loud over the past few weeks):

  • Play with a sloth
  • Visit an ashram in India
  • Return to Heidelberg, where I studied abroad
  • Purchase a house and make it a home
  • Hug a baby elephant
  • Foster more and adopt at least one more pup
  • Become a mother; become my mother (it’ll happen eventually anyway)
  • Go on a safari
  • Commit to at least one socially conscious project

I have my work cut out for me.

To thank you for visiting, commenting, and making my days shine a little bit brighter, I’d like to give away the following to one of you!

$100 in PayPal cash!!

Goodies from Pure Lyft*

Vegan nail polishes and more from Sophi**

Headband from Della LA***

Charming Charlie Flamingo Handbag

A quick word about some of the sponsors for today’s giveaway, because they are dope and you need to know about them 🙂

*PureLyft is an all-natural alternative to sugary energy drinks. This dissolvable stir stick can be added to any beverage for an instant dose of clean caffeine derived from green coffee beans. PureLyft is a no-calorie, caffeine substitute that is made in the USA, non-GMO, and vegan!

**Part two of your goodie bag includes three vegan nail polish colors from Sophi, as well as an acetone-free nail polish remover, and a Prime, Shine, and Seal System. These colors are so pretty for spring and they are free of harsh chemicals, toxins, and odors!

***Della is a pretty remarkable brand that I found out about some time ago (click here for the original post). This woman-owned (and run!) business works directly with a community in West Africa, and provides jobs, education, and skills to their employees. They have a wonderful line of fashionable head scarves, dresses, bags, and more.

Wishing you the happiest of Birthdays sweet friend! Can I go on Safari with you 🙂 What would I do with $100 dollars? I’d probably buy a new pair of running shoes. The one pair I LOVE just have to be so dang expensive. But I wore my last pair into the ground lol. I hope you have an amazing birthday week!!

With $100 extra beans, I’d buy Cassidy a shirt that says “Chicken Man” for his birthday. His birthday is the same week we’re getting our baby chicks.
Speaking of birthdays, I so couldn’t wait for a great chance to wish you the happiest of ones today and I was hoping you would post a blog today! I’ll give you an FB one too, to make it official.
Your work is cut out for you, but I bet you’ll hit every item on your bucket list.

Happy Birthday!!! I hope you have an amazing day! I love your goal about playing with a sloth – it reminds me of that video of Kristen Bell when her husband surprised her with a sloth on her 30th birthday… if you haven’t seen it, it’s a must to look up 😉
