Birthday Week Round-Up and Why Facebook Birthdays Are Awesome

I complain about Facebook a lot. The privacy issues are horrific. It’s gotten too cluttered with ads and junk. It’s a breeding ground for arguments about politics and religion and all kinds of crazy things. But it’s also a place where I can keep up with friends, see their kids grow, and maybe sometimes learn a little bit. You guys post some interesting and thought-provoking links. You also post lots of pictures of cats, but that’s not the point. The point is this: when your Facebook feed explodes with birthday well-wishes, you can’t help but smile. And y’all really made me smile. A lot! So thanks for that!

I know I’ve had a lot of stuff going on this week and I wanted to post as little round-up so you could make sure to enter all the giveaways I hosted this week.

Monday – Two $25 gift codes to mpix.com
Tuesday – Journal from GadankeĀ 
Wednesday – Praying in Color book and journal
Thursday – $50 Metropolis Restaurant gift card
Friday – $75 gift card to Studio Jewel

Go and enter today! All of the giveaways will end at 11:59 on Sunday night and I’ll email winners on Monday!

Thanks to all of the companies who helped me share the birthday love this week and to all of you for making my day extra special!
