It's My Birthday And I'll Have A Wired Whimsy Giveaway If I Want To

**Giveaway now closed.**
I'm baa-aack!  Did you miss me??  Did you?  Really?  I'm going to pretend like you did and that you have been counting the days and eagerly awaiting my return!  :)

I really did enjoy my break!  I had hoped to catch up a bit on blog-reading while on break but I honestly wasn't on the computer that much so I am just as behind as ever.  I hope to catch up a little at a time, but I have company coming so it won't happen this week!

Let's see - what else is happening?  Oh yeah...it's MY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!!  Not only that, but it's a biggie - my 40th!!!  Yes, I just told you my age.  It's just a number - no big deal, right?  :)  And I sort of had a bloggie birthday while I was on break - I hit my 2 Year Blogaversary last week (yay)!!  I decided to just let it be a quiet occasion this year since I had such a fabulous blogaversary bash last year.

In honor of my being back from break and celebrating my birthday, I have a SWEET giveaway for you!!  If you don't already know Christy from Wired Whimsy, you should get to know her - I just love her!  I "met" her on twitter and read her blog before she even started her Etsy shop.  She has housework struggles just like me and a great sense of humor and she's a talented jewelry-maker and a sweetheart too (and she just happens to like chocolate)!  Her blog is cute too - it's Wired to the Whimsy and you simply MUST read her Ultimate Blog Party post - you'll learn all about Christy and love her as much as I do!

I bought this Rose Garden bracelet from Wired Whimsy for a friend - soooo pretty!

And look at this Lilac Heart Necklace in the Wired Whimsy shop - perfect for Spring!

Christy sent me the cutest early birthday present - my very own Stop and Smell the Chocolates necklace, bookmark, and purse charm!  They are SO adorable!  And 1 of YOU (U.S. Readers only) can win a matching chocolate jewelry set from Wired Whimsy!!  Take a look at the cuteness...
Isn't that an adorable set??!!  Christy calls them chocolate muffins, but I have decided that they are cupcakes oozing with chocolate frosting - 'cause I can, 'cause it's my birthday week.  But if you win this set, I'll let you decide if they are muffins or cupcakes!  :)

*Giveaway closed.*

So are you glad I'm back?  I thought this was a good way to come back from a break!  Thank you all for sticking with me through my break!!  Have a marvelous Monday friends!
