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.

    My best birthday gift was getting tickets to see my Jets play back when I was a kid. First and only game I got to go to before they left for 15 years but I remember every minute of it!

No one has ever guessed Emily’s secret. Will you? A happy marriage. A beautiful family. A lovely home. So what makes Emily Coleman get up one morning and walk right out of her life—to start again as someone new? Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
