Birthday Wishes!!!

HELLO DARLING BLOG FRIENDS!!! I have been away soo long....I have missed this magical little blog world! I can't wait to stroll through all of your magical blog -lands this evening! I can't believe how excited I am to see what you all have been doing!!!
While I was away, I adopted a few more followers! YAY....I am so tickled that you are here! I was going to do a "give away" once I hit 50 followers and now I am at 54! I know most of you have hundreds and hundreds of followers...(and happy followers we are:)....but 54 is 54 more than I ever thought would care about what I had to say:)

So since it is my birthday month....and I have hit 50 followers....I would like to do a giveaway to show you all how much I adore you:)....please just leave me a comment and consider yourself entered!! I will draw the lucky winner on January 30th.....when I turn 38!!

And the day I DO turn 38, I have requested a few things.....my husband asked me what I would like for my birthday this year so I sent him these pictures......what a perfect day it will be!!!

Breakfast in bed....

An evening serenade by this man and his instruments......

over a glass of wine.....

and then a treasure hunt over the river and through the woods that lead me to my final gift of the day....

The rest of my evening would be spend in my new gypsy caravan enjoying the balloons and music and candles and wine and food and friends that were all waiting inside for my arrival! We would travel to magical lands and be home before our kids even knew we had left!!!
AHHH....a perfect birthday indeed!!!
I appologize that I can't give the exact Etsy addresses to the pictures I provided! I typed in PEACOCK and these images came up! There are so many creative creatures on Etsy.com!!! Check it out!!!

    Congrats on your Followership (is that even a word?) Isn't Blogland incredible?! I'm glad to be here and happy to hear you're back!

  6. Hello Miss Melissa....Happy Birthday month to you and what a list you have! You should receive it all. I just went thru your whole blog Blended not Stirred and enjoyed it. Love seeing the trip to the Badlands. I have girls and have no idea what it's like to have boy, your blog just showed me a little bit. I hope you use the naked boys to your advantage when you can!...too cute.
    Also, I have not heard from The Farm Chick book winner so I will be drawing another name on Sunday...good luck to you.
    Have a great day friend!
    Hugs from Florida,

  7. The Fairyland girls are born in the same month...I knew there was a reason I connected with you...tee hee. I'm born on the 19th! This is my favorite month of the year for so many reasons. I love to get self-started, dream and put goals on paper. I love to create and express my passion and get organized as you found when you came to visit me.

    Please put my name in the hat for your give away. That would be fun to win...tee hee!

    I also peeked at your blended family blog this morning and how charming is that? What a neat idea to do a blog on a newborn family and all the dynamics that flow with that. My husband is a step father to my children but he had none of his own. The kids are in their 20's now and away from home but it was pure joy and pure trama at times raising them! Tee hee, again!

    Looking forward to visiting you more often this year and getting to know you Melissa.
    Love sent from snow covered Washington.

  8. What a dream day! Gorgeous! Thanks for the loveliest words at my blog today! Blessings to you dear one.

  9. Well.....it sounds like the perfect day to me.....and I can't wait to play in the Gypsy Wagon!! Happy Birthday Month and Welcome Back!!

  10. Oh my gosh! What lovely birthday ideas. I hope you get everything you ask for and more (especially everything peacock related, how fun!)

  11. Hi dear Melissa, So glad you are enjoying shopping for your birthday! Hope your dreams come true particularly that last item and can't wait like Celia to play in it! xxoo Nancy

  12. That would indeed be a perfect birthday! I love those little tea towels (and the gypsy wagon of course). Happy Birthday!

  13. You seem to have a fancy for the peacock.
    I do not know if your husband gets to choose from these things or supply them all - either way you will be a happy lady on your magical birthday.

  14. Oh, okay Melissa, you're doing a good job shopping ETSY! Here is what I'd love in the list...THE GYPSY WAGON!!! That would be fabulous.

    Congrats on your upcoming 38th and thanks for the good words about my two books. Which ones did you receive?

    All joys to you,
