Some people don’t like getting older, but my girl Blair (over at Wild & Precious) sure does and this lovely group of Blair’s blogging buddies and I have teamed up to throw her a big birthday giveaway celebration in honor of her 30th birthday tomorrow!

Blair is my very first blogging person I ever met in person!!!!  I was on a business trip to her city and since I knew she lived there, I asked her to meet up!  It was a ball of nerves before our first meeting since who knows what an internet meetup could turn out to be like, but Blair was just the sweetest, nicest girl ever. We went out for dinner, some country dancing, and dessert and instantly bonded by chatting over “blogging”.  Throughout the years, Blair and I have maintained our friendship and I’m so happy to have this stylish Mama in my life!!! :D  Happy Birthday, girl!!!!!!

 

 

Our birthday girl: Blair / Wild & Precious

The Hosts:  Erika / Rouge + Whimsy  ..  Kacia / Coconut Robot  ..  Jessi / Suzie Studios /Moriah / Moriah Sunde  ..  Sandy / Sandy a la Mode  ..  Lindsy / LMR Photos  ..  Kara Kae / the Mom Diggity

What’s the prize?  Blair has themed her upcoming 30th year as the “year of boho” — so this giveaway is FULL of great accessories and gift cards to keep you boho styling.  One winner takes all.

 

The Prizes: Winner’s Choice of Ray-Bans from sunglassesshop.com, $50 gift certificate to heels.com, $50 gift certificate to Conversation Pieces, $40 Anthropologie gift certificate, a fashionABLE scarf, brown panama hat from Gypsy Threads, $30 gift certificate to Rouge + Whimsy, and a boho head wrap from Suzie Studios! — that’s a loot over $375!!

    My very favourite birthday party was when I turned 8. All the girls in my class came over. And I got a little doll that I still have.

    My favorite birthday party was when my husband surprised me and filled the entire house with pink, red and white roses! it was very romantic and then when I went to our bedroom there were roses all over our bed and he had made the rose petals aligned to say I love you. It was very sweet and the cherry on the top of the ice cream was when he had michael kors gifts all over the bedroom. He had the watch on a chair and then the shoes on another chair and then the purse on the dresser! it was quite a surprise (: My email is perezashley60@hotmail.com I would love to win ! thank you(:

    The surprise party I threw for my boyfriend last year when he turned 30! It was SO much fun, and our birthdays are only 4 days apart so it was to focus JUST on him this time instead of sharing it.

    My favorite birthday was my 20th. My boyfriend and I stayed in a hotel and just spoiled ourselves. haha We had my favorite restaurant for dinner, went swimming, got to fall asleep together, and woke up the next day to go see Ted in theaters. (Granted, I didn’t end up enjoying that movie – most of the humor was before my times. My father got it, and my boyfriend being obsessed with the 80s got it – but I was lost. lol) But still, it was a real blast, best birthday ever and one of my best days period. :)

    I think it was my 6th birthday… it was awesome! My mom threw me a “Best of the Holidays”-theme party. We had an Easter egg hunt, the goody bags were filled Christmas stockings, we decorated Christmas cookies, and different games & crafts relating to different holidays. It was fun and unique!
