Let Them Eat Cake // The Time I Tried to do a Giveaway

Hey guys!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I got to spend mine playing sand volleyball on the west side of the state, along Lake Michigan.  Ugh, so pretty.  Ugh because it was so pretty it hurt, and also because I'm currently sitting on my couch instead of at the beach, getting sand in my shorts and just generally being happy.  #withdrawals

Oh, and then later on Saturday I sat by a bonfire with some of my favorite people and ate a bunch of chocolate chip cookie dough dip, sometimes on graham crackers and sometimes on my fingers.  I came home mosquito bitten and smelling like campfire and happy.  So, yes, I guess you could say that the weekend treated me okay.

But then Monday came, and it couldn't just let Friday through Sunday be the coolest days of the week! Oh, no.  Today happens to be a really exciting day . . .

Um, yep!  Today's the big one-seven, and it's going to involve omelets for breakfast and free Starbucks and canoeing and a triple layer red velvet cake and a sweet sign decorating my spot at the kitchen table, compliments of my mom.  Maybe a present or two, and an eighty percent chance of rain.  I'm down.  In blogging terms,  the fact that it's my birthday today means that we're going to have ourselves a little birthday link party (and possibly a winnable party favor)! A Monday party . . . is that okay? 

| One of the coolest things about celebrating your DOB? All the free stuff.  We're talking enough free food to last me until next year at the very least.

| Why human birthdays are better than animal birthdays.

| And how did they even celebrate birthdays before Pinterest?

| It's okay if you forgot / didn't know it's my birthday today . . . it's not too late to send one of these!

| As long as we're celebrating, let's throw it back with a taste of the playlist from my thirteenth birthday party.  (There was also ping pong and a chocolate fountain involved. . . I know. )

|  The reason we light our cakes of fire and blow them out while making a wish for, oh, I don't know, Zac Efron forever.   

|  If you're ever in need of gift wrap, coughcough I like Disney movies and clothes coughcough,  you can customize some here and here!  

| The adorable little boy in this video is so funny, and he probably has a birthday, so I can include him in this post.  

Party game time!  It's called. . . Try to Win My Cake. Sharing cake with people I like is one of my favorite parts of my birthday (let's be honest, that's partly because of the fact that I get to have some, too!)  and so I'm hosting my first ever giveaway today!  The prize at stake?

One ready - to - make red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, which just so happens to be what I'm eating today.  

Okay, so it's not made with rainbows and smiles, but I can almost guarantee that eating it will make you happy! :)

Well, don't just sit there reading words . . . you have a cake to win!


a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Love the post! I live internationally, would I be able to enter?

  2. Thanks!! I'm afraid not - I'll have to take that into consideration next time!

  3. Happy Birthday!! I totally entered once before reading the comments & realizing I couldn't (since I live in Canada) Whooooops!

  4. Thank you, it was pretty happy! Okay, so obviously I need to fix this for next time. Learning! Canada probably would have been doable, but I didn't want to end up shipping cake to Zimbabwe or something. Not that I don't want them to have cake. But that's probably kinda pricey.


I love hearing from you - it's my favorite part of blogging - and I'll respond to every single comment!
