Birthday Giveaway #2!!

I am cracking up as I type this because I just had a funny conversation with Sam (my 4 yr old DD) about my birthday:

Sam: Mommy, is your birthday soon?

Me: Yes, remember I said it was Saturday?

Sam: That's after Thursday right?

Me: Yes, and after Friday.

Sam: Is your party on Saturday?

Me: No, no party. We're going to dinner though.

Sam: No party?!?!

Me: Nope.

Sam: Mommy, I'll ask Daddy to take you to Chuck E. Cheese like for my birthday.

Me: Believe me when I say this Sammy. Chuck E. Cheese is the last place Mommy wants to go for her birthday dinner.

Sam: Why, because they don't have wine?

....that kid knows me a little too well don't you think? Ha!

The next book I have for Giveaway #2 is:

  1. Little Sam seems to know quite a bit about life, indeed :)

    Scandinavian Stitches is a beautiful book!! Thank you for doing this.

    On my birthday, I like to have a nice romantic time with my husband: go for a walk, go to a good restaurant, or have a nice special dinner at home.
    (my email address is in my Blogger profile).

  2. Great story. For me I always try to take the day off from work. I have two girls, 5 and 7. So that day off is a great gift to myself. Carlynkeylor@yahoo.com

  3. I love the Sam stories! The things kids say. I love to relax on my birthday with a casual family dinner (out, of course). It is always fun to see where the birthday girl/boy picks to go eat. My son asked for McDonalds - is he kidding?

    p.s. I still laugh every time I get McDonald's fries and my car smells. I loved that podcast.

  4. I love to go to the movies on my birthday. Agree with you that Chuck E. Cheese would be the last place I would want to go for my birthday...not only because they don't sell wine! Great story!

  5. LOL! I have four year old twin boys, so I can relate.

    I love to spend the day with my husband and boys on my birthday, sometimes with my parents and brother's family as well.

    Have a great day, Tanesha!

  6. On my birthday I like to go out for a meal with my family - if this can include my 2 year old niece all the better. thanks for the giveaway.

  7. You just got the "do as we say and not as we do" smackdown.

    I like to either go to Seattle and sew with a friend or hang out at home completely alone - nobody else in the house. Perfect meals, delivered, of course. ;-)

    PS Why do you have no search box on your blog?

  8. My husbands birthday is two weeks after mine, usually we plan a fall trip. This covers both of our birthday's. On the actual birthday love having family around and cake to make birthday wishes.

  9. My DH and I have the same birthday. I make dessert, he makes the meal. VermontPines@aol.com

  10. I always feel guilty, but on my birthday I love spending the day on my own doing crafty endeavors, and spending the evening having dinner and dessert with family and friends.

  11. Awe... your daughter is a crack up! How sweet. For my birthday I usually bake my own cake, chocolate with chocolate frosting. That's cause my daughters and husband always have pie on their BD's. How could you want a BD pie?! We go out to dinner, I get to pick the place, and it's usually all of us along with the token boyfriends (who never want to pass up a free meal - lol). Then we have cake and all play a game together, to get some family fun time in. This year we played the domino game, Mexcian Train. Other times it's been Scrabble, or the card game Skip-Bo. It's amazing how we all turn in to these highly competitive, loud laughing creatures!
