First Day of Summer Giveaway!

Flowers from Danielle
Happy First Day of Summer! Today is my 45th birthday! Woot Woot! Hard to believe that I am 45. I don't feel it really.  I feel better now then I have in YEARS! Most people think I am in my 30s so I will hold onto that as long as I can LOL!

Last night was devine! I loved getting all that pampering! My feet are no longer cute so no pics but I did a fuschia on my toes. Did not do the manicure and my hair is dark (will try to take pics at lunch)  Did just fine on food yesterday - thank goodness. Today is going to be walking a tightrope. We are going out to lunch (co-workers) at Elephant Bar and then tonight, my mom and Dave will take me to the Cheesecake Factory. I have looked at their menus and had made a plan of action. I will be sharing cheesecake with Dave and I doubt we will be able to finish it in one sitting but we will NOT be taking it home I decided. No need to have the temptation at home.

Since it the first day of Summer, I decided to do a Giveaway to celebrate! Included in this giveaway:

Two wine/water glasses

Latest issue of Shape Magazine

A bottle of Mio Water Enhancer. Flavor of your choice

A $20 Gift Card to Amazon 

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite part of Summer is. If you would like additional entries, you can post about the Giveaway on Facebook or Twitter. Just post the link if you do. I will announce the winner on Friday, June 24th.  I want to take this opportunity to thank you ALL for the support and encouragement you have given me. I would not have been successful without y'all! Until next time...

    My favorite part of summer is definitely going swimming with my kids all day long. I also really like going to the drive-in and watching movies under the stars. Another great thing is how active I can be :)

  10. Happy Birthday!! My fav part about summer is STRAWBERRIES and the fact then when I sweat when I work out (which is a lot!)I'm not so bothered by it - because everyone is sweating anyway! At least I'm sweating with a purpose! LOL

  11. Sun, sun, sun. I NEED the sun and I NEED to be outside or else I go crazy. I just LOVE the sun and I look forward to being in it for the short summer months all year long! Winter Minnesota Sun so doesn't count. :-)

    First day of summer today and it's raining and cold. Grrr.

    So glad you feel better than you did in years! I just turned 40 and when I told someone they thought for sure I was in my lower 30's. Yea! That made me feel good. :-)

  13. Woot! Happy Birthday Katie!! You have a couple years on me - I'll be 44 next March. :D

    Best part of summer? When we put up our gazebo, I switch from red wine to white wine and we can listen to the baseball game on the radio.

    I would twitter and facebook if I knew how! I barely know how my cell phone works. :D

  21. Happy Birthday, Katie J!!!! I hope that it was a great one!!!

    I have a few favorite things about summer...the fresh produce from the garden (not my own, but luckily I have a few friends that share!) is my #1 fave...can't be a homegrown tomato or some fresh squash! My second fave (and it's a close second) is knowing that I have a vacation planned at some point (this year, it was early summer...Memorial Day in Ft. Lauderdale)...but always good!!!

  26. I'm so glad you had such a good time yesterday, that's what it's all about. I have a big birthday coming up next week, and I'm looking forward to it.

    My favorite part about summer is that I'm off for two months, so my schedule is my own. I can do whatever I want, when I want. I take advantage of it by getting outside and active as many days as possible.
