So, this Friday is a big day @ Casa de Dummies.
The fearless leader (that would be me, people), is celebrating a birthday.
I'm turning the big 3-1.
Some people think that turning 30 is monumental, I'd like to posit that it's actually the thirty first year when all hell breaks loose.
'Cause at 30, I felt like I was still a lot closer to the twenties. You know, 'cause I just left them.
Now, I'm officially in my thirties. I'm not just 30; I'm in my thirties. Totally different.
Anyway, in an effort to shift the focus away from my oldness and onto my awesomeness, I'm having a giveaway. Make that giveaways!
That's right, I'm giving you gifts on precisely the day that I should be expecting them for myself!
Hold your applause, people.
The issue is, what to give?
Ok. I've decided.
Or, it's been decided for me.
I will be hosting my first ever sponsored giveaway!
It is with a fantastic company called UPrinting.
They do all kinds of awesome stuff like business cards, postcards, and poster printing.
Online poster printing? Awesome, right?
You know how I love pictures, so how awesome is this?!
So, I am offering a free 16x20 poster print to 2 lucky people!
That means you can take one of your awesome pics like this...
And blow it up big for your wall.
Please refrain from blowing up pics like this, though because that is just mean (for the record, he's not picking his nose)!
To enter, you must do at least 1 of these things (double chances for doing both):
1. Leave a comment here telling me how you would use your free print. A link to your photo of choice would be perfect.
2. Write a post on your blog linking back to moi and Uprinting.com
I know you are wondering why we are celebrating my birthday on the 13th, when it's not until the 15th.
Well, little miss nosy pants, we are not actually celebrating the day I was born, we are instead celebrating my mom's birth experience, because she had the unfortunate circumstance to be in labor with me for more than 40 hours (good things come to those who wait, while screaming in pain).
That deserves a little celebration (give it up for Mimi).
Contest starts now (day her water broke), and ends Monday, 5/18/09 (day she took home the awesome gift that was me).
P.S. Shipping is included if you live in USA or Canada, all other countries have to pay for it (sorry, they made me say that part).
