birthday giveaway - Cupcakes and Cursing!

It's true. Today is my birthday.

I love my birthday. The thing about birthdays is, no one cares about it as much as you do. Especially when you get older and/or have kids. Makes sense. The focus changes, as well it should. Therefore I have no plans except to buy THEM presents and do what THEY want to do. Lame. Still, it's not going to stop me from eating my weight in cake.

I do love party favors, and since last year's birthday giveaway went over well, I figured I'd do it again, only this time, one BIG prize. Yes, it's time again for Cupcakes and Cursing (Man, that should be the name of my new tv show).

You can win cupcakes...
cupcake cards, a cupcake holder, liners, (basically everything but...cupcakes. Sorry.)

...and cursing!
sh*tlist notepad, curse-ive cards.

And if you're feeling REALLY lucky, over at the recipes blog - you have one more chance to win...Hello Kitty Pasta! You know you want some.

In any case, all of this is just an elaborate plan for me to take a break - you have til Sunday. Now's your chance, delurk, leave a comment on this post - good luck! I'll be off finding some cake to eat...

No cupcakes? that's the only thing I wanted. I'll be int he US next week visiting a friend and I already asked him to take me to a cupcake shop. We don't have those around here, and although I make my own, it's not the same.

Anyway, enjoy your day.

And THANK YOU because your post reminded me that today is my friend Erin's birthday as well. I'm traveling and have been so busy dealing with a sick kid that I totally and completely forgot about her birthday, so your post saved my butt. Thanks!

Happy Birthday! I'm always secretly excited for my birthday on the inside, but pretend I don't care on the outside.

By the way, I made those peanut butter chocolate brownies last night. They were sooo good and not too ugly. :)

Wow! Look at your comment count! People like free stuff! I've bowed out of the past few give-aways, but count me in for this one! Mainly because I feel the same way about my birthday. I love it far more than anyone else and always want it to be special. But, if that is to happen, it's all on me to make it so. Lame. And I don't even have kids, so WTF?

But, this is about YOU and YOUR DAY, which I hope is FANTABULOUS!!! Happy, Happy Birthday!!! You more than deserve it!

I know you didn't mean it like it sounds but it makes me sad to think that no one cares as much about your birthday as you do. My husband goes overboard BANANAS on my birthday and it makes me feels like a rockstar! Kids should not be the main focus of YOUR birthday! Put them to work baking you cupcakes and creating excellent pressies! Ungrateful good-for-nothings!
