The only thing that would make my birthday better would be if my oldest son, Kennedy was with me.  He'll be here in a week for his spring break, though, so I get to celebrate AGAIN when he gets here!  WOOHOO!!!!

My husband, being the WONDERFUL man he is, is giving me one of the best birthday presents ever--a SCRAPBOOK STORE SHOPPING SPREE!!!!!  He told me I can pick any store or stores I want to go to, and he doesn't care where they are.  I am SOOOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!!  I get to spend ALL DAY in scrapbook stores!!!!!  I'm really looking forward to it, because I'm planning a visit to some stores I've never been to before.

So far, I've gotten five LOVELY cards--one from my parents, and four from ladies in the Birthday Card Swap in a Yahoo group I'm in, Scrappin' 'n' Chattin'.  My husband and son also got me a GORGEOUS bouquet of roses!  I'll be sure to post pictures of everything in a few days.

And now, on to my BLOG CANDY!!!  In honor of my birthday, I'm giving away BLOG CANDY!!!  I'm going to pick up some really cool birthday-related stuff to give away, and I'd LOVE to hear about the best birthday gift you've ever received.  I'd also like for you to become a follower of my blog, but it's not a requirement to win.  So let me hear all about those birthday gifts!  I'll draw a winner Sunday night and will post on Monday.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy 40th birthday Ashley! Hope you have a wonderful shopping spree. My favorite birthday gift is a Donald Duck rubber duckie dressed as a pirate that my grandsons Jacob and Cole picked out and bought for me. It was my 52nd birthday a couple of years ago when we celebrated the day at Disney's Magic Kingdom in Orlando. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies.

Happy Birthday girl! It sounds like you're gonna have an AMAZING time doing all that scrappy shopping. ;) My favorite birthday so far was a couple of years ago when Mark and I went to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. I've been there plenty of times before but this was the first time with him and it was so much fun!

Happy Birthday Ashley!! Sounds like you have a fantastic day of shopping ahead- how cool!!! My fav bday was my 30th- my husband surprised me with a weekend at a casino (I had never gambled before, and had always wanted tol try it). The biggest surprise was that all of my friends/family were there for the weekend too! Have a great Bday!

Happy Birthday, Ashley! My fave birthday was the day my kids slipped off and bought me a present with their own money. I still have that vase!

Happy Birthday Ashley!!! You are going to have so much fun. I wish we had some scrapping stores around here. I can't wait to see what you find. I don't remember too much about my birthdays. We really don't concentrate too much on my days. My favorite gift though was my Cricut. I was so excited when Stew told me that was what he wanted to get me.

My favorite birthday is the last one. My BFF came out from San Diego to help me celebrate. It was wonderful. Family is wonderful but there is nothing like a truely great friend.

Ashley it will be hard to beat a b'day gift like you are getting today, how much fun is that. I think my favorite was when I turned 30 and my DH planned a big surprise party for me and invited all my family and lots of friends. I'm sure he gave me a gift too, but I don't remember what it was because the party was so fantastic and a surprise, my only surprise party ever.

Happy Birthday Ashley! That sounds like a wonderful birthday present! I think my favorite gift was my little brother, who was born the day before my 8th birthday - but I only really got to appreciate it latter as at the time I was disappointed that my mom did not get to attend my birthday party that year...

Happy Birthday Ashley!! I hope you have a wonderful day shopping! My favorite birthday was my 31st as I got to celebrate in my very first home. We hadn't even moved in yet but Mike made sure to have a place for us to dine and spend time enjoying our home.

Happy Birthday Ashley!! Enjoy your birthday gift!!!! Can't wait to see what you get, you know you HAVE to show us, right?? I have two fav birthday memories..one was my 21st. Hubby got everyone together and organized a surprise party and how he kept it from me, I have NO idea as we were already living together! I did find out, he was throwing suitcases and bedding out our patio doors from our bedroom onto the garage roof, then he went out and up from the outside to get it!! They had a HUGE camp out party for me!! The other was getting my new camera last year!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Ashley! I hope you had an AWESOME Day shopping with your guys! I have to say my BEST Birthday was my 40th, my kids hung balloons from the trees in our yard, and made a HUGE sign to let the WHOLE neighborhood know it was my DAY!! LOL!! It was just AWESOME, had LOTS of people going by and honking and yelling Happy Birthday!! I hope your day today was just as exciting! Have a GREAT Day,

Happy Birthday Ashley!! I hope you had a blast shopping today! I guess my favorite birthday present is my X-ACTO Paper Trimmer. I love using it instead of scissors to cut straight lines on 12x12 paper!

Happy birthday Ashley! Hope you had fun on your shopping spree! You're such a lucky girl and your hubby is so sweet :) My favorite birthday gift would be my baby puppy my sister bought me. She's now 2 years old and I love her to pieces.
