Happy Birthday to Me and a #Giveaway For You!

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me
I turn 38 today!
Happy birthday to me!
(And maybe you.....)

You guessed it, today at 8:13 am est is officially my birthday. I turn 38 and am okay with it, at least I still look good. Yeah, I'm getting gray hair, I do have two teenagers after all. I'm getting those fine lines that some don't find too fine. They don't bother me at all. I am a diabetic, but even that doesn't hold me back. I work out 6 days a week, and never felt better.
I don't write these lines to gush because I'm so awesome, even though I am awesome, no, I write them because I see young women in their 20's complaining about aging. Like, really?! If you only knew what life had in store for you after 35. 
I told my sister in law today, I'm 18 with 20 years experience. :-)
My point is, feel good about yourself and make the most of what you have. Life is short and birthdays are meant to be special, not a source of complaint. You probably do enough of that already... Just sayin'!

So now that I rambled your ear off, I decided to celebrate life with you.
Or buy your affection, whatever.... LOL

The giveaway is open to US and Canada.
1 winner can choose any eBook, so must be able to accept Kindle and no I won't send a GC instead. 

Good luck and don't forget to eat some cake today for me!

  2. My best present ever is definitely my camera. I'm not a great photographer by any means, but the camera does a lot of that for you, works for me! Again Happy Birthday! :)

  3. The best birthday gift I've ever received is Harry Potter book 1 from my parents on my 10th birthday. It changed my reading forever.

  4. Happy Birthday, Freda! I know exactly what you're saying about these kids in their 20s. They not only understand that they aren't old, but they are wasting their youth boozing it up, recreational drugs, late nights, .... Need I say more? Time writes itself upon one's face and health issues will come sooner or later so why push it? You must be doing something right to feel & look good for your late 30s (I have quite a few years up on you, girl). So, I say YAY, for you! Have a great day! Pssst, I added your bday to my calendar so next year you'll be included in my post, but for now, I do have a little shout on my blog in the upper right corner. I'm still trying to figure out that widget.lol Happy #WW!

  7. Happy Birthday, Freda! Have a wonderful day.
    My best gift was probably my Kindle, because I use it all the time. But then of course there are those precious homemade gifts from my children. Thanks for the giveaway. (We should be giving you a present!)

  11. One of the best gifts I ever got was a laminator from my daughter. It's not really the gift but the fact that she went to the bother to find out something I really wanted. I still use it 10+ years later.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

Exploring the sacrifices and costs on the Nation and Neil himself, during one of the most dangerous missions in the history of space travel. Starring Ryan Gosling.



REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
