Mop It Up Monday #49 {Birthday Bash!}


Today is my birthday! Woohoo...35 years young!

To celebrate, I'm changing the party up a bit {adding a special birthday related linky section} and announcing the BEST give away. A little birthday present to the fabulous readers of ISBMTF...

Stop back by Thursday to register to win a two-night stay at a Magnolian Hotel!
Do you remember me telling you about our amazing anniversary getaway at the Houston Magnolia?

Thanks to the awesome team at Magnolia, you will have a chance to have a Magnolian getaway of your own! Stop back by on Thursday for details and to register! Thanks to Mike Pratt and his team at Magnolia for working with me to put this together for YOU!
 --

Hope you've all had a wonderful start to the new year. 
So happy you're here to {birthday} party with me!

THIS WEEK ONLY: We have a special {separate} BIRTHDAY link-up section. Link up cake/cupcake recipes, party posts, party ideas or whatever other celebratory posts you have. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO BE CURRENT...I would LOVE to see that amazing birthday cake recipe you posted last year!! And don't forget the regular party section as well...for all of your current projects and recipes!

Rules for the Par-Tay: 
1. Link Back (button up or link in your own way!)
2. Visit Other's Links and leave some comment love.
3. Join us on Facebook (not mandatory, but we feature lots of your projects on Sunday evenings & Mondays):

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to come back on Tuesday to check out my personal top ten favorites from today's party.

{Not sure what a linky party is? It's a virtual party for bloggers to share their creativity with others out there. If you have any questions about what/how/why we linky, let me know and I'll do my best to give you a good answer.}
