You Say Its My Birthday---Gonna Have A Good Time

Well, have you VOTED yet? Do I sound like a broken record or what? No, seriously, even though I can never even come close to the terrific and amazing Tiburon at Shark Bait, (who is leaps and bounds ahead of us in first place) I figure that sloppy seconds would make my week!
So do it now----for my birthday----if you haven't yet....go to MMB, scroll down on the right side, and click on SWANEESINGER!

Now.....since it is my birthday today, and I am a wise and really think that I will tell?


They don't call me a vain Diva for nothin'.

But, since I am older than most of you, I decided to tell everyone what I would like for my birthday. If you are considering giving me a present, that is.

First of all, let me explain that I love birthdays. I love to give presents, and I love to have different and fun parties. I always made a big deal out of my kids birthdays, and always tried to make the day (or week) as special as possible.

But every once in a while, I like to let everyone know what is on MY wish list for my birthday.

So, here goes..... Oh, do you need to get a pencil and paper to write it down? Ok, I'll wait.

1. A trip to London. I absolutely LOVED London when we went there for two days last year before we went to Ireland. I would really love to go again. At least by next year, OK?

Aydan and I doing the "Monkee" walk.

2. A house. I really like old houses----no, not the 1940's, silly. More like the 1740's or the 1840's. A lot like THIS house, which, by the way, sold to someone else.

I don't want to talk about it.

3. Liposuction. Yes, you can give me a gift certificate. Or a VISA card should do it, but as I am gaining 4 lbs a year around my midsection, since I started going through the big "M", then perhaps you should do it as soon as possible, as the price will be going up every year. (You know, more fat, more to suck out.)

4. A big screen TV. Yeah, we are probably the only people that I know that still have our little 32 inch TV. Or maybe it is 26 inch. Its small, and its getting harder to read the subtitles on my foreign films.

5. These real cool earrings from a site that is having a giveaway. It is at Bon Bon Rose, a fantastic blog about great deals you can buy----things for the home----things to make you look beautiful. I love it! The earrings are from Scarlet Duchess, an Etsy shop. Go on over and see this great blog.

Aren't these gorgeous? And you should see the others on this site....check it out!

6. A gift certificate from H & M, one of my favorite clothing stores. I usually get one from Santa Claus. (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.) Santa has good taste, oh, yeah. But I need to get a new one for my Fall/ Winter clothes.

7. A Tempur-pedic bed. Oh, yes. I love my Tempur-pedic pillow. I used to have "cricks" in my neck all the time. Not any more. No, no. Not since I got this pillow.
So, I am ready to move on to the next step. A full queen sized Tempur-pedic bed-----ahhhhh, it sounds divine. Oh, and if you want to just send me the one from Costco, that would be fine. I don't need the brand. I'm not picky like that.

Ok, so this is a knock-off, but I've heard that this brand is amazing!

8. A CD contract. Could I perhaps sing with Sting or something? Yeah, that would be cool. Is this a bit too out of anyone's abilities to "make it happen"? Well, a girl can dream, can't she?

Speaking of dreaming. The cool part about this birthday game is that you get to send me these presents through your positive mind energy. Just leave a comment about which one you will be sending me. Or if you want to pick something else that you think that I will like, that would be cool also.

Just let me know. Because I will be sure and capture that image and use it in my dreams.
I will enjoy it. I will luxuriate in it. I will be happy to use it.

Of course, I will be sure and return the favor. Just let me know when your birthday is and what you want. I will get it right to you. Isn't it a great way to give each other what we REALLY want?

I cannot wait to go to H&M when I go to NYC in July!

And you are turning 29, right?

Mrs. Organic said...

Well Sting and I are pretty tight, so I'll see what I can do for you. ;)

Happy Birthday!!!

Angela said...

I think you deserve a house! Happy Birthday!

Debbie said...

Happy belated birthday. I hope you got every item on your list:)

Christy said...

Happy Birthday! I would send you a singing contract with Sting, and he's such a gentlemen,he's going to give you one of his million houses he owns with Trudy!

And of course, I VOTED!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I'm sending you the LONDON trip. Cause I LOVED it when I went last August and you would probably be more fun!

Happy Birthday. Kristina is right about your age? Right? I want to make sure I tell the cake decorator the right number!

carma said...

I voted again...You and I are going to wear ourselves out asking for votes :D well worth it though!


Sending good vibes your way that you will get some of those birthday lieu of purchasing the actual gift ;-)

Oh, but I do have an award for you at my site. And you know bloggy awards are right up there with old houses and a CD contracts with Sting!

Enjoy your special day!!!!

Brittany said...

For your birthday I'd like to get you that house. I was thinking about you yesterday. I always remember your birthday because it's the same as my dad's. Oops, I forgot to call him. I talked to him the night before, though, and mentioned his birthday. Does that count?

tiburon said...


If it makes you feel better - we still have a tiny TV too :)

MiaKatia said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Mom n Pop Wilson said...

How about an un-diet instead of liposuction?

Hope you had a fabulous birthday!

Cadance said...

Hehehe! I ♥ all those things on your list! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I guess I'd give you the H&M gift card so we could go shopping together! I ♥ H&M! Hope your birthday turned out GREAT!!!!

I missed you while I was gone!

Elizabeth said...

Welcome to NE Bloggers! I've added you to the list. I'm in MA, too, about 40 minutes SW of Boston, actually closer to Providence.

Shawn said...

Happy Happy!

I've tagged you come on over and take a look!

Thanks for stopping by Shawn! What a fun blog and HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! My m-i-l's was Tuesday also, funny. And I also love really old houses...we are actually looking to move and are looking at a cute one built in 1850 and has been restored, yum. I sooo WANT it. Happy day!

Jamie :)

dapper kid said...

Happy biiiiirthday!!!! I hope you had an absolutely beautiful day :) Yay for London, you totally have to come here some time!

And I would absolutely love an old historical manor in the countryside. I live in an Edwardian terraced house, it's nice that we have all the original fireplaces and tiling that go with it, but I would love something far more grand lol.

I am so getting you the CD contract, not with just one artist, but everyone I can call at Universal!

Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life said...

I voted yesterday--or was it the day before?, but when I went to comment on your blog my computer turned off. It's funny that way, gives me a laugh a minute. I'm just all tuckered out from laughing.

We have a Tempur-pedic bed we want to sell. Too bad you live East of the Moon and we live West of the Moon. It's also a king size, so it doesn't work in so many ways.

Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life said...

PS Forgot to say, Happy Birthday! You look 16.

Mine is this Sunday. I look 90.

Kristin said...

The Un-Organized Mom said...

The Stylish House said...

Hi Shawn,
I am arriving fashionably late to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday! That lovely old house would have been wonderful, but there is a better one down the road for you! Old homes have so much charm and character and Boston has some real beauties. My birthday wishes for you are: that return trip to London, a new old home, a big screen TV and everything else on your list!

~Kristen~ said...

Hi Shawn!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! I love "meeting" other bloggers from MA!
Oh! And Happy Birthday! I love buying gifts for people so if I could I would buy you everything on your wishlist!

Joy For Your Journey said...

Happy Birthday!! (I am visiting from Rhonda's blog) I am also totally into other people's birthdays and love planning activities and parties. However, mine is also coming up in a few days and I am not really looking forward to that. But then I didn't know I could ask for a trip to London!!:-) Oh, and you really don't want liposuction. Have you seen what that does to you? Big bruises!

Lisa said...

You deserve it all, lady! Except the liposuction--you don't need it you silly, silly girl!

Happy Birthday!!!

zelzee said...
