Non-fat girl boots and birthday awesomeness.. aka GIVEAWAY

For those of you who were around here for my birthday last year know that I love, love, love my birthday. I love being awesome for one whole day of the year.

And I don't like to celebrate alone. Over the last few years I've really come into my own as a person and really love being around the friends and family who are awesome to me, and love me the way I am. And every year I'm blown away by how much they really are happy that here I am, for yet another year. It's always kind of a cool feeling to know people like you. And the for real kind of like, not the like where you think.. maybe they don't really like me and are just saying it. No. Every year on my birthday I am reminded at how lucky I am to have such awesome friends and a great family.

This year will be no different. On Thursday I will *officially* be 29 years old. It's like, my very last hurrah of my 20's and I'm pretty damn excited. A few months ago I decided that I'm throwing myself a birthday party and I want to have FUN. So on Saturday, I have a great group of friends joining me for dinner and then we're heading back to my house for dessert and a sex toy party. It's going to be hilarious and fun. I've been ubber excited for a few weeks and then when the guest list of people who are for sure coming came together.. I get even MORE excited.

This past weekend I went shopping with my mom and she unexpectedly bought me a pair of new boots for my birthday. She knew my fat girl boots were too big for me and then told me to try new ones on for fun. When I found these ones, I was pretty much in love. Like.. I loved them and in my head I was trying to figure out if I bought them that day if it'd be really awful. And in the end, I knew I couldn't spend $70 on boots right now. But I tried them on anyways and my mom kept asking if they fit ok, I said they did and she's like, "Good. Grab the box, happy birthday." UM.. *die of happy*. Really. I am so happy I got new boots and that my mom got them for me. It's a really big deal because I haven't gotten a big birthday present really for YEARS. And it's totally ok because as an adult I don't think you should expect presents from parents and grandparents. It's always nice and greatly appreciated, but I'm old enough to recognize that people have bills. So I never count on anything. So here are my new boots. It's not a super great picture and my other leg ruins it, but I love them. Seriously.
So that kicked off my birthday WEEK. (Yes, I celebrate for a whole week).

But I said before.. I don't want to celebrate alone. So, sticking with last year's tradition I'm going to hold a "Sara's Favorite Things" GIVEAWAY. Last year I drew three names to win a box full of absolute crazy ass shit that are some of my very favorite things. You don't know what will be in there, but you can be sure it's going to be awesome and you'll probably think, "Dang- dat girl be crazy ass". There may be one winner... there may be more. You just won't know until I draw the names lovahs.

BUT the box will have a TON of stuff in it. I promise. Last year each box contained $40 of random crazy in it. This year.. I'm not telling. But it IS awesome. And remember-- there may be more than one winner.

So what do you do to win a box of Sara awesome??

You follow my blog. Obvi. If you don't follow then you suck and you don't deserve to win. Leave me a comment saying you follow.

Additional ways to try to out do everyone else and win it big:

Pimp me and this giveaway out on Facebook (comment and leave link)
Pimp me and this giveaway out on Twitter (comment and leave link)
Pimp me and this giveaway on your blog (comment and leave link)

AND because I'm awesome... I'm offering 15% off your order in my Etsy shop, http://scrapinsara.etsy.com if you type in the coupon code "GIVEAWAY2011" in the checkout process (even on clearance stuff). That's right. This is bonus, because remember, when you buy anything from my shop, I'm donating to Operation Write Home. So that means you get cool stuff and troops overseas get cool cards to write to their loved ones. The sale will go on through the ENTIRE MONTH OF MARCH- so please pimp that out as well. :)

But hurry up and enter the giveaway because I'm going to close it on Thursday, March 17th. Which means I'm going to ruthlessly pimp this out on every post until you enter. Make your lambwhore leader proud. :)

And feel free to sing me Happy Birthday. Or send me a card. *mwah!

I would sing you happy birthday, but I don't sing - EVER. I would send you a cake, but I haven't figured out how to ship one yet. You will have to settle for a simple 'Happy Birthday' from me. I will return on Thursday to wish you Happy Birthday again on the official day. Until then - I follow your blog and I want to win a box of random awesomeness.

Okay, sign me up for the giveaway thingy too (Even though we should be giving you stuff, it IS your birthday week after all).
I will pimp you out on my blog tomorrow, when I have actually slept in the last 48 hours and can semi-function.

Ooooh, those boots were made for sexin'! And are you posting tomorrow? Because if not, I'll tell you happy birthday right now...or I can tell you on Facebook tomorrow too...I'll probably do that...it's because I'm a fat guy that CARES, OK? So when do you want it?

When I read your email about your mom getting you those boots, it made me smile because moms are awesome and seem to always get you those things you really want ... and they look FABBBBBulous on you! I, too, am like you in wanting to celebrate my birthday for a whole week haha. Definitely going to wish you a huge HAPPY BIRTHADY tomorrow!

But for now, I'd love a box full of Sara awesome :)
