Time FLIES!


It's my birthday. I'm 32 today. And for the last couple of years I've made a huge hairy deal about it, written a oft-drafted post, given away virtual cake, and done a real life giveaway.

This year, I'm exhausted. I stayed up a little too late a couple nights in a row, and I'm pregnant, and it's humid. So, no great creative post. However, if you want to, you can scoop a bowl of ice cream and eat it in my honor. I will take your extra calories, if you feel the need to bestow them on me.

But, still, I can't resist doing a giveaway.

The only thing is, I'm a sucker for surprises. So, I'm not telling you what the little birthday package is this year, in honor of the unknown-on-purpose gender of our new little addition coming very soon.


I will give hints:
1. there will be something Pampered Chef in there. of course.
2. there may or may not be some reading material involved.
3. there may or may not be something delicious included.
4. you will like it.
5. if you don't, you will be able to give it to someone who does.

And now, in order to be entered to win my annual birthday giveaway, you must first have a US mailing address. Then, you must do a happy birthday song and dance. I will go with the honor system on this one, unless you feel this simply will not do and just have to set up a video chat.

Then post a comment here (on the blog, not just on FB) telling me your favorite ice cream flavor(s) and how many scoops you typically eat. I know, they seem unrelated, the task and the comment.

I can be random like that.

Giveaway ends next Tuesday!

Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch - I don't eat it by the scoop...I eat right out of the cardboard container! But it usually takes me about 3 servings to eat the whole thing. :-)

Happy happy birthday, Jenny!! Hope you have a very special and fun day! I did a little song & dance for you and would love to be entered in the giveaway!! :D I have so many favorite flavors of ice cream that it's hard to choose just one. Some of my faves are cookies & cream, moose tracks, and peppermint stick. And I usually go with about 2 scoops (although I would rather have more ;)).

Above all other flavors, including Mint Mackinac Island Fudge, I love Spumoni! 2 scoops at a time usually does the trick for me. Happy Birthday, Jenny!

kellyH said...

how could I ever pick one favorite flavor............? well, it would probably have to be black raspberry chocolate chip and I generally have 2-3 scoops. now I'm off to do a happy dance........ happy birthday!

Peppermint, I would like to eat the entire container. But I eat two to three scoops. The peppermint ice cream I like they only have at Christmas time and only at a few stores. It sell quickly. So when I find it I'll buy 3 tubs and freeze it. The reason I like this ice cream it's creamy dryers and it fresh tasting giving you that minty breath. It goes with lots of holidays deserts. Too bad they don't make it year round.
It's probably for the best. I would be larger if it were sold year round.

In honor of your birthday - i will be dreaming about eating a couple of scoops of columbian coffee chip ice cream...not actually eating it sadly! :) (if truth be told- which it always ought to be :) my ABSOLUTE favorite it chocolate peppermint candy cane ice cream. sadly, it's only available at Christmas...in CANADA. :)

chocolate peanut butter - 2 scoops

Tricia said...

Happy Birthday, Jenny...we are now the same age again! Truth be told, I had to be off dairy when I was nursing Geneva so I can't even remember what my favorite flavor was. How sad...I know, I better start trying them all again! =)

Julie said...

Chocolate Moose Tracks (as opposed to the vanilla-base----HUGE difference!). And I usually only eat one giant scoop!

Happy birthday!

Chastity Gomez said...

Well, happy Birthday to you!!!!! COFFEE ice cream is my fav and I eat around 3 scoops! Gotta get as much caffeine as possible, right:) Hope your day is swell!

Shannon Smith said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite ice cream is either cookies & creme or anything with chocolate and Carmel in it! Yumm!!

christina said...

happy birthday, jenny!! summer birthdays are fantabulous!

even though i am WAY beyond the age appropriateness of this flavor, my all-time fave is BLUE MOON! i typically only get it once a year when we hit our favorite ice cream shop up north. it's one of those great little places that puts two scoops into their so-called single. :-) if i get my hands on it any other time of the year i get a little giddy.

Autum said...

Mac Fudge or Chocolate Moose Tracks. 2 scoops. Happy Birthday!!!

Tracy said...

Happy Birthday Jenny -- I sang you Happy Birthday as I rocked my sick birthday girl (tomorrow). I hope the rocking will count as the dance part :)

My favorite ice cream is peanut butter fudge swirl (moose tracks is good also). I usually go with two scoops (depending on the size of the scoops!).

Katie said...

Happy Birthday! You amaze me w your giveaways. I need a solid three months to get anything to the post office.

Hm, I love many different icecream flavors, depending on the mood! I love peppermint at Christmas time, or Oreo cookies n cream (loaded!), and mint choc chip is my old standby.

Christina, every time I hear you like Blue Moon, I am freshly astounded.

Katie said...

Oops, 2 scoops.

Mary Ann said...

Happy, happy birthday! Today is my birthday - I'm 34 :-) You are so sweet to give gifts on your birthday. My favorite ice cream is the homemade vanilla my parents make. And shamefully, I have been know to skip a meal so that I can keep eating it until it's gone :-) usually there are at least a dozen family members helping, but it can still be a lot of scoops!
I hope you had a fabulous birthday & that you are feeling well!

Alicia said...

HAPPY non-humid birthday to you, lady! I have lots of yummy ice cream favorites but my number 1 fave is butter pecan. A close second is anything combining chocolate, nuts, and chunks of brownies or fudge. 1.5 scoops. (Going to the kitchen now to fulfill the birthday song and dance requirement!)

Tim and Sarah Valiante said...

Well, who can bypass telling about their favorite ice cream flavor? Not me! I love Turkey Hill's Philadelphia Mint Chocolate Chip...two scoops please with a little bit of milk mixed in =).

About the birthday dance and song...I'm sorry I missed it yesterday. I kept debating whose birthdays were what days. I do hope all is well and you are feeling better today.

Lovin' you!
Sarah

Marybeth said...

Jenny, you are a hoot - married to a hoot, with some hootie children!! Cousins rock.
Happy happy day to you, Happy happy day to you, (I'm dancing on the inside ;) and my favorites are 2ish scoops (depending on size of the scoops) of butter pecan and/or dark sweet cherry!!
