Birthday Countdown

Next week is my birthday week. Let's have a little celebration, shall we? I always feel it is better to give than to receive, so I will be hosting 7 giveaways in one week. One giveaway a day starting Monday.

I am a lover of outside soirees. There are few things I enjoy more than al fresco dining with friends. I am hosting a 30th birthday party for my friend Jenn this weekend and I am thinking of making it an outside affair. It will probably be more like hot dogs on the grill, but here are some fun ideas all the same. If I won the lottery, I would allot a few thousand dollars a month just for entertaining.





















cheers!

Wow!! Those pictures are amazing. My favorite is of the night picture with the pool and the white(looks like stucco) House.The sky in the picture totally reminds me of beautiful desert nights when we lived in Arizona.
Happy early Birthday. My sons is next week too. He'll be 10 on 09/03/09. Thanks for the giveaways!

Gorgeous pictures! Thanks for sharing. An outdoor soiree sounds absolutely divine right now. :) I have no doubt that you could pull one off just as beautiful as those pictures!

I love outdoor entertaining. I wish I had unlimited funds for it and that I lived down south so we could do it all year long. Looking forward to celebrating your birthday week. We have birthday weeks too!
