It's My Party and I'll Buy If I Want To



I want to give you $25 to shop at Target.

Yes, that's right

to shop at




How to Party (I mean, win the Target Gift Card)~

Do any or all of the following (separate comments for each):

1. Comment: Tell me how old you are. (please, please be older than me)
2. Follow my blog (and tell me you do so)
3. Send someone to my blog and get them to mention your name. (You can tweet, facebook, email or blog about this- all you have to do is get the commenter to tell me that you sent them.)

I'm gonna celebrate my birthday all weekend (or at least try to convince my family to spoil me all weekend), so I will pick a winner on Sunday night and post the winner on Monday, August 9.

Happy Birthday to you. I'm 28 but I will add 20 years to it today and say i'm 48 does that count?

I will agree with Samanthas post -- add 20 today to make me 48 as well! (Some days I feel that old...)

Have a VERY happy birthday Jane Anne!

Jane Anne- First of all... Happy birthday to you! I am 41 and so far the 40s are fabulous ( but I'm sure you have years to go before you get there!)
Have fun being spoiled by your sweet family.

clarson said...

Do I really have to commit? Ok, I'll finally admit to being 46, although I lied to my kids about that forever. Tracy, we're tied, so you can't use your age to beg for the Target card.

I'm now an official follower, although I've loved popping in to your blog from time to time. Love the stories about your kids. I can so relate!

Have a very happy birthday!

Hi Jane Anne,
I'm in Oregon. Wish I could come on down to see you. I thought of you last night when Natalie and I were on a walk and met a man with a dog he adopted from Lebanon. Anyway, I am still 41 for a couple more weeks. How old are you? Happy Birthday!

I forgot to say that I am a blog idiot. So, although I read your blog daily, I don't really know what it means to follow it or how to do that.
