Big Birthday Bash

Hey there friends! It's Friday, and this week, that means that it's time for my big birthday giveaway! My 30th birthday is on Sunday, and I thought it'd be fun to give one of YOU some of my favorite things. A few of my friends thought so, too, so there are some fun gifts to give out!


The sweet Hannah of wifeysinger is giving this lovely one of a kind pair of earrings away. I heart these, as well as my own wifeysinger earrings- I wear them often.
She is also offering 20% off at her cute shop with the code FANCYMANDIE. I like that.

Next up is a little joint combo from myself and my friend Suzanne, who is also my newest sponsor. From me there are three super cute and summery fat quarters of fabric by Moda (purchased at Hip Stitch) and from Suzanne is this cute Amy Butler pattern- Must Have Pillows pattern.

I will also be adding a Target gift card to sweeten the pot- just haven't had a chance to go pick it up yet.
One last thing- instead of offering a coupon code that works half the time, or trying to even remember one, I decided to mark down select items in my shop by 30%! From now through Sunday (my real birthday!!), you can get any clutch for 30% off or select pillow covers, too! I am so excited about this as I've only ever offered this discount a few separate times, but I'm pretty sure that an occasion like this warrants a big discount, are you?

I just want to say thanks to you all for reading & supporting me- it means so much, so I wanted to give at least one of you a sweet treat!

To enter, leave a comment with your favorite gift that you either gave or received. Tweet or link up on facebook for additional entries, and leave a comment for each entry. Please be sure to include your email address with your entry if it's not linked to your blogger account! Giveaway is open through Sunday, July 15th, and winner will be announced Monday, July 16th.

Have a superb weekend my friends! I'm so thankful for you all!

  7. Happy birthday, dear! I think one of my favorite gifts I gave was for my mister's birthday last year...I took one of those mugs from Starbucks that you can personalize and wrote out a piece of our love story from a card he'd given me years ago - he loved it so much that he started crying! Totally special. :)

  9. Aw, how fun! Happy Birthday! My husband's birthday is tomorrow but he has duty so we're celebrating on Sunday. Because that's when all the cool kids have birthdays, apparently ;)

    Best gift? Probably the ring my husband got me for Christmas two years ago. It had been an especially difficult year for us (lay-offs, a big move, joining the Navy and subsequently our first time apart) and he picked it out for me while were visiting NYC. He said it was my "thanks for being a good sport" ring. Love that man.

  10. Happy birthday friend!! I love how you've decided to celebrate it :) I think one of my favorite gifts given to me was a bracelet my aunt and uncle gave me for graduation. It was totally unexpected and such a sweet, thoughtful gift. Something I never would have bought myself. I hope you have lots of those kind of birthday surprises this weekend. I'm so very glad we've met!
