happy birthday to me. (BIG giveaway!)

Today is my birthday!
I'm 29...
plus 3.

:)

A few weeks ago,
Tessa asked me what my favorite animal was when I was a little girl.
I told her a panda bear.
This was her gift to me this morning...



Wasn't that thoughtful? (especially for a 6 year old!)

* * *

To celebrate, let's give away some gifts!



I'm giving away a $100 tvp gift certificate
to
5 lucky readers!!!

Oh, Happy Birthday!!!! I'd love to win a gift certificate! I was on your site yesterday looking for something for my mom. She has a unique "grandma" name and we never have anything "personalized".
