Birthday Giveaway Deets and Entry Page!

I have a tradition for my birthday. I usually head to the mall and pick out a few things totally guilt-free for myself. Usually I go shopping and apologize to my husband for the damage... but oh no, not on my birthday. Now, I had the great idea to get married on my birthday, so it's also my anniversary. Since the day was already packed, I went over on Saturday and happily shopped away.

So, since my tradition is to buy myself something pretty, why don't you do the same in honor of my birthday? up for grabs is a $60 gift card to CSNStores.com. CSNStores.com has a massive variety of stuff to choose from, including bedroom furniture sets, shoes and handbags, kid's clothes, home stuff, decor, you name it. So... it's pretty much the most abstract giveaway OF LIFE. $60 of guilt free shopping money makes Jae very, very happy. Entry is for Americans AND Canadians. I swear one of these days a British sponsor will swoop in and make a deal for my fans 'cross the pond.

Alright; here's how to enter. You've got three ways:


1) Leave a comment on the post. I feel like it should say something along the lines of "Happy birthday, you're the best and I love you," but I won't sway you either way.

2) Become a fan on Facebook. I so very much love communicating with you guys over there!

3) Follow my blog. Let's be friends. That way you'll be the first to know about awesome giveaways and my distaste for Lady Gaga and harem pants. (Click on the "Follow" button on the right-hand side with all of the pretty pictures of my current followers.)

That's it! Leave a comment for each entry. IMPORTANT: ENTER ON THIS "HOW NOT TO DRESS LIKE A MOM SWAG PAGE," not the posting over on the regular blog. It just helps to keep things tidy and neat for me, k?

If you're already a fan or follower, just leave three comments and we are good to go. The winner will be announced on Friday, seeing as there's no better way then to spend a weekend perusing online stores with money to burn. Seriously, I found these over there. You could totally buy them for me with your gift card. Just sayin'

Good luck shopaholics.

  128. Hi Jae! I know I won't win (never win anything) and that's ok. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and happy anniversary. Also wanted to thank you for brightening my day with your hilarious posts. Your family blog and your fashion blog are great...I confess to blog stalking you a little bit. I even blog stalk the "Ing" family too. She (Morgan) cracks me up like you do! (I swear I'm not scary...I'm LDS! If that does anything to ease your mind?) :)

    Anyway, happy birthday!

    P.S. My husband and I are a lot like you and Justin. We're pretty different too - but somehow we work! (And I think tandem bikes are weird.)

    ReplyDelete
  129. Happy Birthday! when I found your blog, I immediately spend the afternoon reading every blasted post. Love. Love. Love.

    ReplyDelete
