Birthday Giveaway......not a Wii :)


New. shoes, new Wii.
Really liking them both. This is the first game system we've ever had. No Nintendo, no Xbox, none of them. It was the "Fit" that captured us:) So far we've really been enjoying it. My balance has improved in the last week! Each morning you can do a "body test" if you want, takes about 2 minutes. Checks weight and balance and gives you a couple of balance extras to try. My weight has not changed but that's good...at least it is not going up:) My balance has improved! that's just after a week:) Anyway, it's still a novelty around here.
New Year's is over and for most of you that's it for a while but for me.......the fun continues! My birthday is on the 8th of January and to celebrate, I am going to give away a print or photograph, your choice:) and......... 7 smaller gifts! Stickers or magnets. 8 in total. Guess what? Elvis Presley and David Bowie share my birthday too!
Here's what you have to do.......remember to pop back here on the 8th, that's next Thursday, and wish me a Happy Birthday! I will enter all the well wishers names into a vessel of some sort and draw the winners:) Also, if you blog about it, and put in a link, let me know, I'll enter you twice:) A bit of shameless promotion (It's all about exposure)
The fun continues.... you can get one print free with every purchase at both of my shops. Just write Happy Birthday in the notes to seller and also the print you would like for free:)

Still cold here. Still snowy. Just got back from the Vet. Poor Monty's had a rough couple of days. I think he snuck (sneaked?) shrimp as it was being prepared and has been sick ever since. Better today, he's on the mend! Gosh it's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with that cat. Good thing he's cute.

It's your birthday, it's your birthday, maybe not yet but it'll be your birthday... (imagine Beyonce singing that to you). I just looked at your photographs in your shop - my, you have some pretty images there. They are so lovely and I especially like how they reflect where you live. I haven't been to Nova Scota yet but will get there one day. Everyone I know who has gone to Halifax has loved it there. Several people I know have even moved there after visiting the place.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Wii Fit...glad you're enjoying it. Would love to have one, but we have NO space. My little niece did get a Wii for her birthday in November though...and the family's been quite enjoying it. I'm hoping to be a better commenter in '09. ;) Again, Happy New Year to you and H. xo

Love the shoes and we are still having fun with the wii until my son takes it back! I am the bowling champ and lovin' it! The fitness thing sounds so cool. We might have to save up our $ and buy our own wii so we can get the fitness thing.

Sorry about the kitty. They sure can be a handful can't they?

Jeanne said...

My Grandmother turns 94 January 9th.

I hope your cat feels better.
Love Jeanne

We got Wii fit also for Christmas-I've only been on it once so far-Christmas day, but I WILL get on it again and hopefully develop a daily routine with it. Gotta lose 10lbs this year!

Happy New Year!
