Catching Up & Mysterious Birthday Giveaway

It's catch-up time!

1. I realize I left many of you hanging after last week's post about the premiere of Bravo's new show, Pregnant in Heels. I was very excited to watch the show and for me, it lived up to my expectations. I watched the second episode last night, and there is just something so lovely about Rosie and the way she handles her demanding clients. Yes, most of them are crazy (and really, that's being kind), but Rosie is so patient yet firm with them, without babying them. I really like her no-nonsense approach. I'm sure there are many views on the show so I'd love to know what you think if you watched/are watching! Oh, and exciting - you can follow Rosie on Twitter! I've heard a lot of people say how annoying her accent is, but I like it. You can also check out her blog here.

2. I chopped off my hair last week, and I am loving it. I took the below picture to my hairstylist, and she did a great job. My hair is a little bit longer than the picture, but I have the blunt ends which I absolutely love. Styling is quick and easy too.


3. My birthday is in less than two weeks. I honestly haven't even had time to think about what I want to do. I'm assuming that since I'll be busy working and C will have just returned from Chicago, we will not have the time or energy to do much. Maybe just a nice dinner out. Last year, I had quite the birthday extravaganza so this year it only makes sense to keep it low key.

4. Oh, speaking of C, he has been gone for almost a month! He returns this weekend and I'm really excited for him to be back. It's just not the same without him. No one is there to laugh at my corny jokes during tv and more importantly, no one is here to take out the trash. I have to do it myself. Can you believe it?! :)

5. Here's where the giveaway comes in. Since my birthday is coming up, I wanted to do something to celebrate with all of my readers!

What will you win??
The prize is a surprise for now, but I promise you will enjoy it! If you like fashion and accessories, and want to be ready for spring, then you will definitely be happy with this prize package!

How do you enter??
Leave a comment on today's post and any future posts until April 30. You will earn one entry per comment.

Since I knew I would be doing a giveaway this month, any comments already left on previous April posts - here and here - will also count as an entry. I've already marked these up in my spreadsheet so future comments on those posts do not count.

When will the winner be announced and the prize be revealed??
Come back on MONDAY, MAY 2 to find out if you are the lucky winner.

I bet that hairstyle is sooo cute on you, cant wait to see it!

And what a fun way to celebrate your birthday, and I hope its one of the best ones yet!

Pregnant in Heels is such a good show and I really like Rosie too. Her accent doesn’t bother me either. Some of the women on the show are ridiculous, but at the end of the episode everything seems to work out and have me liking them a little more.

I can’t wait to see the new hair. That’s a great style and I’m sure it looks really nice on you.

A low key birthday can be very nice and I’m sure you’ll be very happy to have C back. I know I get a little nuts when Geof travels for work and sometimes he’s only gone for a few days.

DC GOP Girl said...

Yay for birthdays!

Politics and Pearls said...

Happy early B-Day! Mine was Sunday :)
