  6. Happy Birthday Rachel!! I'm with Virginia feeling totally ancient. I don't even remember what I did on my 25th birthday!! Have a great time celebrating and like Virginia - I don't need to be entered in your drawing - just happy to have met you on-line.

    I will share one of my best presents though. Last year when I turned 29 again - I mean 40, my best friend from college, Liliana came to visit me for the first time (I visit her and her husband in Miami at least every other year). We had a girls weekend in Savannah and ate ourselves silly at Paula Dean's lunch buffet. We had so much fun she's planning on coming up again this year and we're planning to go to Charleston!

    Hugs from another ancient bloggie friend!
    (glad to hear you got the stamps so quickly - I really worried since they've already been lost in the postal-system for 4 months)

  8. Rachel-- I have a September birthday too! You've inspired me-- I think I'll do a birthday code discount too! It's a great idea! I'm feeling a little old hearing you're turning 25 as I'm turning 28 which is a bit too close to 30 for comfort!

    My favorite birthday gift ever was from my parents. On my 18th birthday they bought me tickets for the three of us to go see my favorite band, Midnight Oil. This has been my fave band since I was about 6 so I was pretty excited, especially since they were Australian and made it to the U.S. very rarely.

  9. Awww...Happy Birthday to you!!! I'm a new follower!!!

  10. Sooo, apparently my first comment didn't take so here I go again!

    Happy Birthday month to you!! My favorite birthday gift either had to be my bicycle around 8 or 9, or the small television I got for my room several years later. Both got a ton of use out of them!

  11. I would love to be entered into your giveaway! Very generous of you to have such a sweet giveaway!!

    By all means, come by my place to enter my GIVEAWAY as well.

  12. Happy Early Birthday!! What a lovely giveaway, thank you.

    My favourite birthday gift was actually a vacuum from my parents when I moved into my first apartment. It was such an adult gift and it helped me feel like I was an independent grown up.

  25. Happy 25th Birthday Rachel!! Wishing you all the best on your special day and in the many years to follow!!
    My most memorable birthday was when I turned 40. Some friend of mine gathered a bunch of old bras and had their husbands (they had to use ladders)decorate a huge blue spruce in our front yard with them. They also put a huge banner on our double garage door that read: "Theresa's bustin' 40!" The funniest part was me trying to get the bras out of the tree the next day. I had to use a broomstick to reach the bras on the top and was "flinging" them out into the street trying to get them off!!

    Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY......and thanks for your generous giveaway. ([email protected])
