Richard's Birthday Giveaway

I am sure some think that I am celebrating the wrong thing today.  It is Mothers day today, but today is also my birthday.  My giveaway today will be for a 5-pack of Batik's.  I bought 12  5-packs from http://www.sewbatik.com/ one of the vendors at the HMQS quilt show so that I would have plenty to give away.  I plan to give a 2nd 5-pack away 2 weeks from today on Tanya (my wife's) Birthday, we have birthdays exactly 2 weeks apart from each other.



I love Batik's, my wife not so much but she did let me buy 12 5-packs. 10 for me to keep (50 yummy fat quarters) to make cool quilts out of and 10 fat quarters to share with others.  You could make me a B-day present out of them, but you don't have too.

To win their is no hoops to jump though other then you have to give me a birthday wish (My wife thinks this sounds too complicated IE just wish me happy B-Day).  You could share a fun b-day story with me if you like.  You can have a 2nd entry if you follow me.  I love follower's, especially if you drop notes to me on my posts from time to time.  This will be open to enter from May 13th my b-day to May 20th when I announce the winner.  I will ship any where in the world.

SO 
HAPPY B-DAY 
TO ME

And Fat Quarters to YOU!

For those curious as to what I got me for my B-Day Meaning the Batik's I got here is a picture of mine.


Oh an one last thing not to forget Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mother's out there.  As for me and my kids we are getting up early and making Mother Breakfast In Bed.

Well, my birthday is Nov. 2, my daughter's is Nov. 5, and my hubby's is Nov. 9 so I understand the close birthdays. My sis has the same issue in December but hers is not included. The week includes her hubby's and both of her daughters b-days. Her birthday was actually yesterday! Happy birthday!

My favorite birthday involved being taken for high tea by my fiance! Happy birthday (again)!

VickiT said...

Wow, lots of celebrating over at your house with a birthday and Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day to Tonya! And a very Happy Birthday to you as well.

My hubby's birthday and mine are a month apart, but in different years. He loves teasing me about how I robbed the cradle because when I have mine if you ask our age, I appear to be two years older than he is until his birthday finally rolls around. Mine is Jan '59 and his Dec '60 so it is almost two years. The thing I always thought about is the fact his birthday is that he is exactly 3 months YOUNGER than my little brother. ACK. THEN it sounds like I did rob that cradle. LOL

I hope you spoiled your wife today too. My husband has been cooking all day long for me. He told me to pick whatever I wanted to eat today and he would make it. He refuses to allow me to help or to do the dishes either. That's is REALLY hard for me to sit and not help someone, even my own husband working in MY kitchen. He made a yummy breakfast and since has been working on our supper. (I was allowed to make a strawberry trifle however although that was supposed to be later this week. I have coconut cream pies mixed halfway but the filling must sit for 24 hrs and I had forgotten that part. I was and still am VERY bummed about that as I was really looking forward to those pies. I found this recipe about 2 yrs ago and it's considerably easy and SOOOOOOOO GOOD! This recipe compares to any (and actually much better than many) I've ever had in any restaurant. I am glad the strawberry trifle ingredients were here though so at least I'll have something for dessert. I was super excited this past week when I saw Old Time Pottery had Trifle bowls on sale for only $6.99 and I've always wanted one so we got two of them so I can give my DIL one too.
But soon we'll be ready to eat. Yum.
Marinated steaks (he'll cook on the grill) with a new marinade I found that looks quite interesting.
My awesome baked beans recipe we made for our wedding and had people still talking about that when we'd bump into the 2 yrs later.
A Macaroni/tuna pasta salad
And then dessert.

I hope you all had an amazing day over at your house.

Happy birthday... I will tell you what my first gift from my husband was when we were dating....(now I can't remember if it was christmas or my birthday) but anyways, he kept hinting about the gift, said it was something I could wear every day! I was thinking a necklace or a ring or some sort of jewelry, well it was a gift pack of body lotion/shampoo stuff.... UHHHHH.....
