BadabirthdayGIVEAWAY!!!!



Teen and I are having a birthday this week! Cool huh! We turn 24. Pretty Neat.

I thought I'd do a giveaway. Lame or Awesome? I realize this blog doesn't warrant blowout giveaways done on Pioneer Women or Design Mom or Rockstar Diaries. But I have readers (ahem friends and family) too!

What will you win? Two pairs of earrings that I've made. That's TWO pairs which is also FOUR earrings---put it together TWO FOUR---24! Eh? Clever?

Will you comment on this post and tell me:
Where I should go in my 24th year of life? A place I need to visit---city, country, island, grocery store, thrift store, ranch, breakfast restaurant, anywhere.

That's all---then you qualify to win. You have until Sunday June 7th (D.O.B.) to enter. I will announce the winner next week!

Good Luck!

OMG I have never won anything in my life so I better make this response fabuloso.

Where should you go for your 24th year of life?? Well I know I am a bit biased to the east coast/North Carolina now, but seriously...you cannot pass up this breakfast place Ryan and I found. It is such a treat. Let me describe it for you.

It's name is: Toast. This little breakfast place is hidden in a extremely old southern home with the original wooden floors. They serve a banging breakfast all day and also do a dinner menu later. But, I must say...I was blown away by their freshly squeezed OJ, homemade toast, and the most amazing breakfast burrito I have ever had. Ryan had the avocado/bacon omlet and that boy was in HEAVEN! Their hashbrowns are just as tasty. No shredded potatos at this place...red potato chunks seasoned to perfection.

Well, if you can't make it to Toast, Denny's I'm sure is an equal competitor...JK.

Or travel to Greece. Do it. and bring me with you!

i don't have my ears pierced...yet.
actually, i'm not that partial to the idea of getting earrings. i just wanted to participate in a blog. its been a year or more. :)

Annie P said...

Love that you are doing a giveaway. And I love your earrings.

I think you should do a humanitarian trip somewhere. Africa, South Ameria?

Or touristy - Kenyon thinks everyone should go to Phuket in Thailand.

Make sure I can come too!

Sam and Livi said...

giveaways are awesome. and so are you. for your 24th year you need to go to Sainte Chapelle in Paris. The cathedral is two stories and is covered from floor to ceiling in stained glass windows depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament. And yes, I realize this comment from me is totally typical :)

p.s. I can't tell you and K apart in this pic. Is K on the left??

I think you should teach english to little kids abroad and start jewelry line while you're there.
Or
Go be a bum in hawaii and get a teaching job there!

PS. I am not trying to get you out of utah... just think you should take an adventure.

I think you should open your own boutique and become a 20 something hipster businessaire!

happy almost birthday!! you need to go to tahoe. this summer... maybe even for the fourth of july... it is really fun there for the 4th. and you need to eat at sprouts which is a local natural foods cafe that is probably the yummiest thing you have ever tasted. and you need to hike mt tallac when you're there (i've never done, it it's pretty hard core, but i feel like you are hard core) and you need to camp at a campground on the beach/lake, and go skinny dipping in the lake at night. ta da! doesn't that sound wonderful?

Auburn said...

I think I need some new earrings. I think you should either a) come visit us in phoenix or b)visit havasupi in the grand canyon!

shauna.m. said...

tahoe wins my voe and i think it would win ur heartt....or the salton sea for a week of ghetto and bike gangs and salvation mountain...oh the pictures

Kathi said...

So I am reader from another blog...my good friend Paige. But I love your energy, so I am sure I would love your earrings!
Where should you go?
Ok...
There is a store in Leavenworth Wa that is a hat shop. They have EVERY kind of hat you would ever think of. Viking hats, knit hats, animal hats, hamburger hats. They let you take a million pictures with friends and never make you buy a thing! I road trip it there everytime I go to WA, its not THAT far from Seattle, total day trip. Leavensworth is charming little place too. Total German town, with great Bratwurst!
Anyhow...you'll love and you'll have a great photo-op!

Jane da bain, I've already suggessted one place (after GC in April) but there is always my house smore making, green lake running, Lake Washington canoeing, the Locks gawking, Pike Place donut eating, Fort Casey bunker sploring, Cupcake Royale munching....

Paige said...
