Ella’s Turning What? Blog Hop & Giveaway!! August 9th-11th


What is it about birthdays that either make you love or hate them?  I have had a few of each but since this is a celebration (Happy um 29th Birthday Ella Jade) I am going to tell you about a very memorable birthday of mine.  My hubby and I have been together for a long time ( since 1988 give or take a few years) and I have always complained that he never surprises me.  Well, 2 years ago he SURPRISED ME for my birthday – he even kept it a secret until the day before we were leaving!  He got a babysitter so we could spend a romantic, kid-free, weekend at a couples resort in the Pocono Mountains. It came at a perfect time in our long relationship.  We laughed, loved, lounged about and reconnected with one another – physically & emotionally.  It was wonderful!!!!

So, click on the link and hop on over to the other blogs participating in this wonderful event & giveaway.  Over 100 blogs (each offering a unique giveaway) and a chance to win a $100 GRAND PRIZE Amazon or B&N GC!!! WOW – that is a lot of books!!  Make sure you comment on each blog & leave your e-mail address – the more blogs you comment on the better your chances of winning the $100 gift card in the end (winners will be chosen Monday morning by Ella Jade via random.org and she will contact you if you win).  Good Luck!!!!!!

    My favorite birthday was my 40th. I went shopping with my mother then got my favorite tattoo, a garter that goes around my thigh with a Derringer tucked in.

    My favorite birthday memory is one birthday when I was 8 or 9 (I think) and my parents let me invite a bunch of people over, including all of my family, and everyone just ran around in the yard, jumped on the trampoline, got in and out of those plastic pools around the yard, ate homemade cake and ice cream that my mom made, and hit the pinata! It was super fun just to be a kid and run around with all of my friends on a great day that involved homemade yummy treats!
