Psst, did you know?

Today is my birthday.

I think I will shamelessly plug for Happy Birthday wishes since I am now, um, what is 2010 minus 1973? 

Yeah, I'm 37 today!

Anyway, since I've only received the birthday wishes from friends and extended family via Facebook (gotta love technology), I think I'll bribe you all for them.

You see, I'm going to a quilt shop today. It's my gift to me. Generous of me, isn't it?  While I'm there, I'm going to pick something up for one of you commentors.  It's noon ET on 12/28.  Comments will be open until noon ET on 12/29 (just to give those sleeping in other countries a fair shake right now).

The little something will be a surprise but it's all good, right? It will be something brand new from a quilt store.  Maybe a notion, maybe a yard of fabric... you'll see!

Here's what you've got to do. Wish me a happy birthday. Yep, that's it. 

If you want to tell me your favorite birthday celebration for fun, please do. I love hearing great little stories!

Cheers! Beck

Happy happy birthday! That sounds like the perfect gift - a trip to the quilt shop! I feel like it's like a kid in a candy store - have a blast :)

Happy Birthday to You! Oh, buy yourself some really great presents! Our family doesn't really do anything for adult birthdays, maybe a small gift or dinner out. My birthday is next month. My sister in law and I are going to a craft expo around that time, so I'm planning to buy myself some good presents for my birthday! Any excuse to fabric shop!

Happy Birthday! I just love birthdays. They are like personal holidays. :) I hope your birthday is a very wonderful one. :)

Happy Happy birthday to you!
My roommate and I have a "Birthday Box". We only use it with each other... It's a fully decorated good sized box, and you just put the present in. Small or large. Her b-day is Thursday, and a quilt top is safely tucked inside for her gift. (We're out of town, so I couldn't finish it in time.... )

Have fun at the quilt store!

Happy Birthday!!! and many more. Love birthdays. Usually spent with gal friends: quilt shop in the morning then a wonderful lunch at a nearby tea room. A few moments of pampering!

Happy Birthday! I'm always off work for my birthday and if I can spend it sewing, that's the best thing!

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday!!! Enjoy your shopping trip! I did the birthday fabric shopping trip yesterday (somewhat belated, but they had all quilting fabric on the bolt for 50% off) I felt like a kid again!
I hope you come home full of joy!

Happy Birthday! What a nice present to yourself ~ a trip to the quilt shop :) Enjoy your day!

Shay said...

I'm assuming you're back from the quilt store by now since it's almost 4.00pm! Did you treat yourself like crazy.

Happy Birthday Becks. Hope your day is fabulous.

I always buy myself a little something for my birthday. Usually fabric related.

Happy, happy birthday!! 37 years young! I hope you were able to do everything you wanted today!

Marg said...

Happy Birthday Beck, and I would have wished you lots of great birthday wishes without the giveaway.
I hope you had a fabulous day.
I don't usually buy myself anything, although as a once in a life time thing, last year for my extra special birthday I bought myself a car.

ShirleyC said...

I think it's great to treat yourself on your birthday. One year I took my grandkids to Build-a-Bear for my birthday. It was so much fun for me to watch them having fun.

Happy Happy Birthday!

Well, Happy Birthday, you very young thing. I love my birthday and consider it the best holiday od the year. In fact I never worked on my birthday cuz it was a holiday as far as I was/am concerned.

I remember 37. I think I remember 37. Maybe I remember 37...or was it 38? Girl, you are in your prime! I think I felt better from 35 to 45 than any other time in my life. I didn't think it at the time. :) But looking back it was a great time in this woman's life - old enough to be past child bearing but young enough to enjoy the children I had. Old enough to feel at ease in my career but young enough to still move up the ladder. Old enough to look good and young enough to look good. :) Happy Birthday....celebrate you! blessings, marlene

Deb said...

Happy Birthday!! I think going to a quilt store is a perfect way to celebrate your special day. My hubby usually takes me out for dinner which is a nice way to end the day

Peach Rainbow said...

Wishing you many more lovely years of health, happiness & success :D

Thank YOU!

Janice said...

Hi Becky - We share a birthday, and I also celebrated by going to a quilt shop. We have alot in common.

Happy Birthday! Well a few hours late but who is counting.

P. said...

Happy Birthday (a little late)! Hope you enjoyed your day and fabric shopping! My favorite way to spend a birthday would definitely include eating something great, preferably a nice juicy steak or maybe grilled salmon. Then shopping for fabric and maybe at the thrift store. I'm pretty easy to please! Cheers!

Mimi said...

Here's wishing you had a great day yesterday!! My birthday is on the first of January and my sister always has the family over for dinner - it's a nice way to start the year (I almost forget that it's my b-day!!)

Candace said...

Happy Birthday!

I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who celebrates with a trip to the quilt store.

I also do that for my anniversary :)

Michelle said...

A belated Happy Birthday! Mine (and my cousin's) is tomorrow. Like you, I generously gave myself quilting stuff. I've got an obscene amount of fabric on the way from Thousands of Bolts. :-)
