Happy Birthday To Me! A New Decade And A COOL Giveaway To Celebrate

Posted on Thursday, November 21st, 2013

Happy Birthday to Me!

If you know me, you know I am not shy about wishing myself a Happy Birthday.

So, here’s my Happy Birthday wish to me…


And now onto my giveaway.

But first…

Perhaps I should share a few thoughts on this milestone, seeing as it is a NEW DECADE and all that good stuff.


Last year, at the end of the OLD DECADE, I felt a bit nostalgic, sentimental, and even sad.  To see why, click on the link below:

Distractions From My Birthday Celebration

I guess the END of a decade hits me harder than moving into a new one.  Does anyone else feel that way?  I talk to so many people who dread turning any-age-zero but very rarely do I hear anyone say how they dread turning any-age-nine.  It is just the opposite for me.  Turning a ZERO age is pretty cool, in my book.  It feels like a beginning.  Right, wrong, or just plum crazy, it doesn’t matter.

This year, I will be spending some time on the beach again.  And this year I say “Thank You” again to my Mom and Dad for instilling in me the pure joy of celebrating my birthday.

So, yes, as I plunge into a new decade, I say Happy Birthday to Me!

Mom always made fancy birthday cakes.  This is me with my angel food cake.  It's almost as big as I am!

And NOW… onto my COOL giveaway!

The Little Fan That Blows

Okay, you’ve got to love the name of this fan, right?

But, even better than that, it actually does what it says it will do.  The BlowMeCool™ fan COOLS!

This summer I wrote a review on the handy-dandy little BlowMeCool™ fan and found out that I loved it.  And, yes, I’ve been using it AND I’ve been sharing it with my ‘Sisters In The Pause’ – you know, my ‘hot flashing’ friends.

For anyone who hasn’t had the pleasure of having a hot flash yet, let me tell you, a hot flash is NOT getting hot; it’s burning up and then melting into a puddle of sweat. So, what do you do besides cool off with the BlowMeCool™ fan?

You laugh.

So, here’s your laugh. Enjoy! Then come back for the giveaway.

Now… on to the GIVEAWAY!  The folks at BlowMeCool have kindly gifted me with a BlowMeCool™ fan to giveaway to my readers.  All you have to do to enter is comment below and share your thoughts with me about birthdays, hot flashes, or just life in general as we age. Mention that you’d like to win the BlowMeCool fan and your name will go in the hat.  I’ll announce the winner on December 1st, so be sure to comment before then.  Good luck!

Thank you for reading and sharing my birthday with me.  I surely appreciate YOU!

p.s. If you’re not lucky enough to win my BlowMeCool™ fan, The good folks at BlowMeCool™ have offered you, my readers, a 10% discount when you purchase the BlowMeCool™ by clicking on this link and entering the code – RW2013

    Happy Birthday Patti !

    We definitely seem to go through mental plateaus while aging. Nevertheless, the process of living remains the same. Namely, get up each day and simply do the best you can with the physical, mental, energy, family, friends and all other resources available.

    I’m glad that a BlowMeCool has become a resource for you, and thanks for helping us get the word out.

    Best wishes,

    Thank you for the birthday wishes, Brian. And thank you for offering me a BlowMeCool fan so I could have a bit of giveaway fun! 😉

    And, thank you for your reminder about how to live the best life we can, especially as we get older. Good thoughts.

    Patti, Happy birthday! You are a bright wonderful spirit and one of the fastest and most clever writers I know! Eat a mess of cake for me.

  • Patti says: November 21st, 2013 at 1:17 pm

    awwww… I blush. Thank you for your birthday greetings and for the kind words. And, yes, a ‘mess of cake’ is certainly on the menu! Thank you again, Barbara!

    Hi Patti and Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!

    Now that you’re in your fourth decade do you feel at all different 🙂

    I turned 53 last week and I also had a giveaway over at The Joy of Simple. I’ve always thought, ever since I was a kid, that I SHOULD be the one celebrating my birth with others, and not the usual way it’s done.

    And like you, I also had a giveaway as a present to others rather than to myself.

    I hope you have a wonderful day and I look forward to wishing you many more decade filled birthdays.

    Tale care and all the best.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes, Lyle! I surely appreciate your wishes for my ‘fourth decade.’ tee hee! Actually, this decade doesn’t feel a whole lot different from the previous decades. Well, that’s not entirely true. The flesh is weaker, a bit… but, the spirit is strong, so all is good!

    And a belated Happy Birthday to you, you youngster! 😉 I’ll go over and check out your giveaway and see what you’ve been up to. I haven’t been reading as much as I should be these days. Working too much, I guess.

    Thanks again, Lyle!

    Hi Patti!

    Hope you are still celebrating your birthday, as we get older it is all about enjoying those special moments!

    Oh yes, Hollie… it is all about enjoying each moment we are given, eh? 😀

    And those moments pass by now at lightning speed. Yikes! I think that’s why we physically slow down a bit as we age – maybe just a reminder to pay attention to all the wonders we have yet to enjoy.

    Thank you for the birthday wishes, Hollie. I surely appreciate the time you took to read and comment. 😉

    Happy birthday! I love that song and danced along with you.

  • Patti says: November 25th, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Thank you, Kay Lynn!! I’m glad you celebrated along with me. It is just way too fun, isn’t it. 😉
