Birthday Celebrations and Giveaway!

I love April, mostly because it's my birthday month. Haha! So, Deek and I planned a trip to the beach to celebrate. As I've told you before, I'm a Dave Ramsey girl, so we set aside money each month in advance to prepare for the trip, used only that money during the trip, AND...we came in under budget! I am so proud of us. LOL! We were able to have an amazing time too! Woot! <raise da roof>

Here are some pics from our adventure!

The beach is gorgeous! We were fortunate that this particular weekend happened to be the warmest in a long time! 

Big grins! I love this man!

He's sneaking a kiss from the birthday girl!

I LOVE the movie Tombstone, so I was psyched to see Huckleberry salt water taffy! LOL! 

We decided to have dinner at the Pign 'N Pancake. I've not had pancakes in YEARS (yes, years). They were so yummy!!

Both Deek and I wanted to give this surrey ride a try! So fun, and good exercise (which we needed after the Pig 'N Pancake-LOL)

Gorgeous view along our surrey ride!

Every day, I think it's not possible to adore this man any more than I do, yet every day, I manage to fall a little more in love. How does that happen?

More time on the beach beside this handsome man. <swoon>

For my actual birthday, I had a cold. Boo! But it was the perfect excuse to lie around all day. I ended up watching two movies--Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters and The Other Woman. I chose Percy because...Percy. And I chose The Other Woman because it starred Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones. I wanted to see him in a different role.

Percy rant: I adore Percy Jackson in the books. But Percy in the movies seriously lacks the snark I grew to love in the books. He's all angsty and uncertain. BUT I'm glad this time Annabeth had blonde hair. I'll keep trying to forgive the za-za-zing blue eyes (she really has pretty eyes though) when they should be grey (how many times did Riordan mention that??). 

I feel like this when I see self-conscious, non-snarky Percy in the movie...

Jennifer Lawrence Fighting With Fist

And just because I can't resist a chance to plug my favorite's Jaime Lannister. Game of Thrones foreva, baby!!

While I was sick on my birthday, my husband came home for lunch and brought me Panda Express, which I love! And then for dinner, he brought me pizza and Reese's. It was the perfect food day for me. I felt so loved! Deek is da best!

The title of this post mentions a giveaway...I didn't forget! ;) You have TWO chances to win a copy of The Prophecy--one on Amazon and one on Goodreads. Here are the links! Good luck!
