Want A Present?

It's my birthday today, but YOU deserve a present, and this one's coming to you courtesy of the awesome chicks at ltdchix.com.

All you have to do is leave a comment. Later this week, a random commenter will be chosen to win a FABU t-shirt from their fun selection of MOM t-shirts.

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! If you're not a mom, don't despair! Because I didn't want to leave anyone out, for those of you non-moms (this means, women or men who are not moms (because as an equal opportunist, and now thanks to Oprah, I have to say "Men" who are not Moms now too), you can still enter to win something too!

Or wait. Do I need to say, "Men who ARE NOW MOMS." I am so confused.

So, anyone can leave a comment ... just make it clear whether you're a mom or a non-mom because there will be TWO winners. One mom entrant will win a t-shirt of your choice and the non-mom entrant will win something else, courtesy of moi, the birthday girl.

But that's NOT ALL! Enter within the NEXT FIVE MINUTES AND YOU'LL ALSO QUALIFY TO WIN A YEAR-LONG SUPPLY OF Manic Mommy Magnets! Decorate your refrigerator with them:



After you leave a comment, stop on over at these blogs:

Semblance

Because I Said So

Mimi

...to find out what crazy stuff we did last night because I have NO IDEA what they're going to tell the blogging community. Or what photos will be on display? But not to worry, cuz I've got my own stories and my own photos I'll be sharing later this week.

Happy Birthday! Every year, all I request for my birthday is for my husband to stay home so that I can have the day off. Sometimes, I even get what I want.

I'm a non-mom with mom-like tendencies. I live with my sister and 7 year old nephew, so I get many perks of parenthood with very few of the bills. Best of Both Worlds!!

Happy Birthday!

And I'm a mom, who makes no apologies for being a mom. A female mom, with female parts inside and out. A girly mom who hates bugs and spiders and icky boy stuff. A mom who loves being a mom.

There, is that clear enough? :)

Shelley said...

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Maaaaaniiiicccccccccc....
Happy Birthday to you!

Does Mr. Manic give you spankings? ;)

Manic Mom said...

Dim, I was gonna say if Michael Johns pops out of the cake, let's hope he's nekkid, but then I decided, it might be better if he's covered in a little bit o' frostin'!

Dontchaknow?!!!!

Seriously, though, I hope you have a great birthday. Cute magnets!

JODI said...

Maybe if I decide to come to Downergrove this weekend, haven't decided for certain, I will knock at your door and personally sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR MANIC HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! I hope your special day is perfect...which means you do nothing but self indulgant things ;-)

In your honor I am polishing off a bottle of Pinot Grigio. Cheers!

Jamie said...

Wishing you a very happy birthday...mom of daley, jensen, mcgwire, holden and presley...

Solei said...

First of all, a very merry Happy Birthday to you! Spending a day with Dawn at the Oprah Show... sounds like a perfect day. Hope you had a blast!

HRH said...

Pick me!

Michelle said...

Wow, Happy Birthday, Manic!

I'd say that tonight I stopped by someone else's blog for the first time in days (it's been a REALLLLY long couple weeks) and chose yours because I knew (and remembered) that it's your birthday, but that would just be lying.

But of course, happy birthday anyway. I figure it's serendipity (one of my favorite words). Hope you have a great celebration. HOB is a great start (and you don't want to know how jealous I am. It has to top my night in the city on Saturday)!

And in my fam, cupcakes are only for half-birthdays. The "real" birthday deserves a "real" cake. Here's hoping you'll get one!

Cata63 said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope that you had a wonderful birthday!!!

I want to win a contest. .. i think that it would be fun. I am currently not a mom but will soon be an aunt to my sister's baby.

carrie & troy keiser said...

Well, Happy Birthday To YOU! you make me laugh! I hope you had a wonderful day!

Anonymous said...

Happy Belated Birthday Manic! I love the "freak your balls off" and "let your freak flag fly" t-shirt ideas...hysterical! Looks like you guys had a great time in Chicago - Dawn posted some great pics. And for contest purposes, I am currently of the non-mom variety, but hope to "poop one out" someday! ha

Manic Mom said...

Whoops! I didn't go to Oprah; I just had dinner with all the girls the night before! But that itself was a total blast!!!

Mom24 said...
