Birthday & Bonus Content Giveaway

It’s my birthday! I lie. Tomorrow is my birthday. But does it really matter when there are treats in store?

That’s right, it’s giveaway time!

Booklet Preview

On April 17th, I’ll be part of the “Fall in Love with Teen Fiction” event at Powell’s in Beaverton, Oregon, with Kody Keplinger, Ingrid Paulson, Mindee Arnett, Lisa Desrochers, Sarah Fine, and Kristin Halbrook.

To promote the event, we created a limited run of booklets with exclusive content from all of the participating authors. My contribution is an annotated excerpt from Siege and Storm—little bits of trivia about the characters, the writing, and other fun stuff, all scrawled as legibly as possible in the margins by me.

You can ONLY get these booklets by attending the event. (That’s right, unless you’re in Portland on the 17th, no goodies.) BUT…

shadow and bone

I’m offering one exclusive content booklet—signed by all of the authors—right here, right now, to you. 

Plus a signed copy of the paperback version of Shadow and Bone with bonus content that includes a letter from Mal to Alina.

Good luck and thanks for celebrating with me!

    Am I the first comment? AM I? HAPPY (early) BIRTHDAY!!! One year younger, isn’t it? 😉 Hope you eat lots of cake and have confetti thrown at you the whole day! 😀

    The best birthday present I’ve gotten… hmm. Oh! When I turned 18, one of my friends gave me a B&N giftcard. It was the first time anybody had ever given me money expressly for books and I think I made some strange noises and hugged her for too long.

  2. Nhi Le Apr 5 2013 at 1:46 am #

    Even if I have heard mixed reviews for this, I’ve seen enough quotes (from GR and Tumblr) to want to read this book. And happy birthday to you, Leigh Bardugo! *brings out the confetti cannons*

    Best birthday present? Can’t really remember… I am pretty sure it’s a toss up between several book vouchers, or one the Harry Potter books.

    Happy birthday! I love birthday giveaway s; they just seem to be the best kijd, sharing the happy with everybody! Let’s see… best birthday presents… my parents gave me a gorgeous set of birthstone jewelry, which will always be my favorite. I was also thrilled by a boyfriend’s gift of Zelda Twilight Princess. He didn’t last, but I still love that game! And my most recent bday included my sister sharing the news of her pregnancy! Can’t beat that! Thanks for choosing to share you happy day with us!

    Happy birthday! I really do wish I could be at the Powell event … yet, sadly, I live nowhere near Oregon. What’s my favorite birthday gift? I’d say back when I was a teenager, my parents gave me my first laptop. Before that, I had to share a desktop with my two brothers and it was a nightmare. They wanted to play videos game. I wanted to play RPG games and write fanfiction and things like that. So when I got the laptop, it was so wonderful. That HP lasted until my last year in college.

  5. Desiree Thompson Apr 5 2013 at 2:52 am #

    The best birthday present I ever received was a new camera, lenses, and tripod. It was my 18th birthday so my parents went all out! I have loved photography since I was old enough to hold a camera but had never had a fully manual model. Even though everything is all digital now, that 35mm, 10 year old camera is still my favorite one I own and the one I prefer to take my shots with. Happy birthday! I hope you get some thing that you can cherish for upwards of 10 years s well!

  6. Meredith Blake Apr 5 2013 at 3:07 am #

    Wow. This book sounds incredible and even if I don’t win the giveaway, this is definitely going to added to my To Read list…probably near the top. It sounds like just my kind of read.

    The best birthday present I’ve ever gotten was the first crocheted quilt my sister made. I’ve always wanted one but I suck at crochet; it’s way too finicky and I much prefer knitting where it doesn’t really matter if you go freestyle. (Freestyle knitting? That sounds like an *actual* thing and not just what I do cause I’m too lazy to learn to read and follow patterns). The quilt she made is kinda wonky but I love that about it.

  7. Llehn Apr 5 2013 at 3:38 am #

    Happy birthday! Best present is book certificate.

  8. Gaby Apr 5 2013 at 3:57 am #

    I can’t remember the best one I had, since I don’t really do a lot of parties but I remember very fondly when I went to see the first Harry Potter movie on my birthday, that was pretty awesome.

  9. Renita McCall Apr 5 2013 at 4:05 am #

    The best birthday gift I’ve ever been given would have to be a charm bracelet from my best friend. All the charms were associated with the things I loved, so it made it meaningful.

  10. Lucy Apr 5 2013 at 4:38 am #

    Oooh, best birthday present… Hmm… Probably when I got my dog, Coco, when I was 12. That was a very exciting time. 🙂

  11. Christina K. Apr 5 2013 at 4:54 am #

    Definitely when I went on Spring Break in high school with my friends:) I didn’t have the money but my aunt treated me to it:)

    Thank you:)

  12. Brooke Apr 5 2013 at 5:52 am #

    I think my MacBook Pro!

  13. Sharon aka ShaeAnn77 Apr 5 2013 at 5:53 am #

    A signed copy of Shadow and Bone would make my year!!! Fingers crossed! Love love love it!

  14. cait Apr 5 2013 at 6:04 am #

    Best present I’ve received? A Mockingjay pin. It made me really happy! 🙂

  15. Jessi Apr 5 2013 at 7:23 am #

    Happy Birthday!

    The best birthday present I ever received would have to be a drum set. 🙂 It was during my “musical instrument” phase, before I learned I was musically retarded. I can’t play a note. Good thing I can write!

    Wish you would come to Vermont!

  16. Erica Apr 5 2013 at 7:42 am #

    Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family, friends and laughter! I think the best birthday present ever was a Mickey Mouse watch my dad gave me when I was 15. I remember thinking it was a very grown-up watch. I wore it everywhere!

  17. Adi Apr 5 2013 at 7:55 am #

    Oh man. Best birthday present ever might have to a trip to Spain with my AP Spanish class, which my parents vert generously sent me on. I turned seventeen in Barcelona and my classmates got me te world’s largest gooiest chocolate cake. All twenty of us ate that cake for DAYS.

  18. Leigh Smith Apr 5 2013 at 8:14 am #

    The best birthday present I ever got was when my husband flew my cousins and me to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Best Day Ever.

  19. Natalie Aguirre Apr 5 2013 at 8:31 am #

    Happy Birthday, Leigh!. Can’t wait to read Siege & Storm.

  20. Sondra Johnson Apr 5 2013 at 8:36 am #

    Happy, happy birthday! May your day be full of celebration and fun…

    Many, MANY years ago when I was turning six, I desperately wanted a cowgirl outfit. With hat, holster AND pistol.

    I thought it was impossible.

    Then, my lovely parents came through on my birthday. Everything above AND a red cowgirl vest and skirt.

    I could ride off into the sunset with my imaginary horse…… complete happiness!

    • Caitlin Vanasse Apr 5 2013 at 10:21 am #

      You were far more awesome in your birthday requests at six than I was. I’m glad your parents came through and I hope you have fond memories of wearing that outfit too!

  21. Jon Goldhirsch Apr 5 2013 at 8:39 am #

    My favorite birthday present would probably be going to Hershey Park with my family! Happy almost Birthday Leigh!

  22. Gwen Cole Apr 5 2013 at 8:41 am #

    A Harry Potter robe. Best. Birthday. EVER. Ravenclaw for life!

  23. Pili Apr 5 2013 at 8:42 am #

    Happy birthday, even if it’s a day early!

    My fave birthday present has to be the surprise birthday picnic my boyfriend organized for me on my 28th birthday!

  24. ellie M Apr 5 2013 at 8:51 am #

    Happy Early Birthday!!! *Dances seductively* *fails*
    My best birthday present? Mmmm We don’t really do birthday gifts, we do birthday dinners/ BBQ’s. The best one I think was when everyone went to a beach to BBQ and somehow ended up in the ocean at midnight in our underwears. 😛 Memories are good presents too! Oh. and the cake. Red velvet cake. mmmmmm

  25. Asti Apr 5 2013 at 9:05 am #

    The best birthday present ever received? Hmm… I’m going to say it’s going to be this year. My long-distance boyfriend who lives in the UK is coming to the US for the first time ever to visit me and meet my family. I am SO excited!
    Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  26. Emily Apr 5 2013 at 9:18 am #

    Happy Birthday!! This is a tough one, but my best birthday present is from when I was about ten and my grandparents gave me a giant Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal. I was incredibly happy. I hope your birthday this year finds equal happiness!

  27. Joni Apr 5 2013 at 9:23 am #

    Happy birthday!! Hope it’s filled with your favorite things and favorite people. ^.^

    The best birthday gift I’ve ever received… I don’t know. My parents know me so well and they often give the perfect gifts. I do find it extremely delightful when I get B&N gift cards. (Just the idea of those plastic rectangles makes me giddy. ^.^) One of my favorite presents would have to be the antique locket I got on my 18th birthday. I wear it ALL THE TIME.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. Ari Apr 5 2013 at 9:46 am #

    Happy birthday, I wish you all the best!
    My best birthday ever was when I received the Lord of the Rings books twice, from two different people 🙂

    I don’t suppose this is an international giveaway? I won’t enter until I know for certain. Thank you!

  29. Stormy Apr 5 2013 at 10:02 am #

    Happy birthday?
    Best present? Hmm, probably the birthstone ring I got from my parents when I was 10. It only fits on my pinky now, but it’s come to mean a lot to me!

  30. Christa Apr 5 2013 at 10:06 am #

    The best birthday present I ever received was my puppy – Riker. We talked about getting him beforehand but it wasn’t until my birthday we actually went to pick him out.

  31. Katie J. Apr 5 2013 at 10:09 am #

    Hmm…..The best birthday present is hard to choose. I guess it would be when I got a $100 Walmart gift card. I love gift cards.

  32. Chloe Apr 5 2013 at 10:12 am #

    I want this. BAAAD.

  33. Katelyn Larson Apr 5 2013 at 10:18 am #

    Happy birthday!!! I hope it’s an awesome one.

    My favorite birthday present would be hard to say. My favorite recently is a little odd. Basically, my hair has always been a beast to control and all the various straightening techniques are far out of my price range. But my awesome sister surprised me this year with a groupon to get my hair done. I’m endlessly thankful to her now. 🙂

  34. Caitlin Vanasse Apr 5 2013 at 10:26 am #

    Happy Birthday Leigh! My BFF and I have been eagerly awaiting Siege & Storm (and using the time to get more friends hooked. Waiting-for-book-release-misery loves company and all.)

    My favorite birthday present sort of came about by chance. When I was in high school I joked that I wanted to go to Washington D.C. for my birthday, knowing it was really impossible. Then I found out my cousin was going to be in D.C. for a conference and invited my mom and I to come share her hotel room. It was totally awesome and now I’m back in D.C. for graduate school (although the weather was much nicer when I visited!)

  35. Marie O. Apr 5 2013 at 10:28 am #

    The best birthday present I ever received was Lord of the Rings Pez dispensers. Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. Michelle Roberts Apr 5 2013 at 10:29 am #

    Happy Birthday! I’ve already bought SHADOW AND BONE, (still waiting for time to read it) but I would still love winning. Good luck to everyone!

  37. Angelica R. Jackson Apr 5 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I was actually thiiiiiss close to being in Portland for the event, but we had to change our plans. Sacramento has some great book fans–just sayin’

    My best birthday present ever was when my older brother discovered 6-year-old me loved Breyer horse statues. He was set for the next 10 birthdays or so, and I happily built up my stable of horses. Except the time I took a few to the beach and they got left buried in the sand and my mom refused to go back and look for them. I’m still in therapy for that one.

  38. Alwyn Apr 5 2013 at 11:18 am #

    Happy Birthday! Best Gift I ever received was tickets to see “Book of Mormon” from my brother last Birthday, especially considering his idea of getting me a gift is usually to grab the first thing he sees in the Grocery store that is not produce. So I was very very impressed on this one.

  39. Ashley Lamb Apr 5 2013 at 11:19 am #

    The best birthday gift I have ever received is a leather-bound collection of Shakespeare’s works. It was added to my collection of his plays and poems.

  40. katherine Apr 5 2013 at 11:31 am #

    Happy Birthday! The best gift I have ever received was a new car and my dad stocked piled the truck with Stephen King and Anne Rice books. The car was great but the books were the topping on the cake.

  41. Fly to the Sky Apr 5 2013 at 11:40 am #

    Happy birthday!!!!

    My best birthday present would have to be my Kindle. I just love it!!!

  42. Tammy Sparks Apr 5 2013 at 11:47 am #

    Happy Birthday Leigh! Thank you for the awesome giveaway:) I guess the best birthday gift I’ve received is the one I just got a couple of months ago from my mother, a Kindle HD Fire. I love it and use it for just about everything. Hope you have a wonderful day!

  43. Morgan Rooks Apr 5 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    Happy early birthday! April babies are the BEST!! I think the best birthday gift I ever received was a VHS copy of Star Wars when I was 8. It’s the first time I remember being so excited about a present that I cried with happiness. That VHS was well loved, let me tell you.

  44. Rena B Apr 5 2013 at 1:05 pm #

    For my 18th birthday, I wanted to go to DC and visit the museums, so my family and I went on a road trip, which I love. Then we went skiing in northern VA, which I always wanted to do!

  45. Alex Ray Apr 5 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    Happy Birthday!

    I don’t know about the BEST birthday gift I’ve received, but I will say that one of the more memorable ones was tickets to see the Dallas auditions for the X-Factor. That was awesome. Got to shake Simon Cowell’s hand (he is a tiny man). I never watched the show, but the whole experience of being there was really fun (though agonizing at times. You know they let some of these people on only because they suck).

    I’m anticipating this year’s present because I know it’s gonna be a huge order of books, including Siege and Storm! That’s pretty close to the best I’d say.

  46. Lori T. Apr 5 2013 at 1:43 pm #

    It’s almost your birthday, Leigh! I hope tomorrow is a great day for you. I’m lucky enough to have some really great friends who make sure each summer that I have a fun birthday. But out of all of them, last year, I received the greatest gift on my birthday: my best friend gave birth to a happy, healthy baby girl. Can’t really beat that one!

  47. Nikki Diehm Apr 5 2013 at 1:52 pm #

    Best Birthday gift ever–my underwater camera, which has taken thousands and thousands of pictures (both above and below sea level). Happy birthday to YOU, Leigh! Hope it’s FANTASTIC!

  48. Giselle M. Apr 5 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    Happy Birthday Leigh! My best birthday gift has been a trip to Disney World for my fifteenth birthday.
    Thank you for the giveaway, I’m impatiently waiting for Siege and Storm!

  49. Alexa Y. Apr 5 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    An advanced happy birthday to you Leigh! I bet your event is going to be fun. I think my favorite birthday present I’ve ever received is my black Macbook (which is pretty ancient compared to the new ones). It was from my grandfather who passed away, and I love it even though I’ve had to replace parts and deal with hardware issues from time to time. That laptop and I have been through a lot together – and hopefully, will be going through many more things together as well!

  50. Annie Apr 5 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    Happy birthday! I hope you have a fantastic celebration and a wonderful, beautiful day 🙂

    and what a fun idea for bonus material.

  51. Elizabeth Karr Apr 5 2013 at 2:25 pm #

    Happy Birthday, Leigh! Congratulations on all your success – lots to celebrate. Have fun in Portland. Wear your Mardi Gras garb!

  52. Joti Apr 5 2013 at 4:01 pm #


  53. Renn Apr 5 2013 at 4:15 pm #

    Books vs. Cake, it’s a tough battle, but having both on a birthday is the BEST. Have a wondrous day filled with joy, glamour and laughter. I really wish I could meet you, but it will have to wait until you swing by Austin, TX sometime. Rock on!

  54. Robin Hall Apr 5 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    Happy Birthday! My best birthday present ever … let’s see … that would be my SLR Camera. Love that thing.

  55. Vivien Apr 5 2013 at 5:21 pm #

    A tattoo 😀 I’ll never forget it 😉

  56. Tiffany Kuan Apr 5 2013 at 5:47 pm #

    The best birthday present….hm…I would have to say either my last birthday present which was two tickets to the Muse concert 🙂

  57. Maggie Apr 5 2013 at 6:50 pm #

    Happy Birthday you brilliantly evil author!!!

  58. Amanda Apr 5 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    The best birthday present I ever received were tickets to go see Stevie Nicks in concert. It was a blast and completely unexpected since the tour date was ON my birthday and I had been moping around, unable to get tickets b/c they were sold out.

  59. Janita Apr 5 2013 at 8:17 pm #

    My favourite birthday present is coming up this year! My parents are paying for my ticket to visit Greece! Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway 😀

  60. Samantha Apr 5 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    The best birthday gift I’ve ever gotten was when my boyfriend surprised me with courtside tickets to a NBA game and flew me to Vancouver and paid the hotel. He also let my family know ahead of time we would be coming so we could visit them as well. It was really thoughtful of him!

  61. Marina Apr 5 2013 at 11:05 pm #

    My birthday is on Monday! April 8th! So hopefully I’ll get something awesome. But on previous birthdays, I got a HTC phone two years ago, and a laptop last year.

  62. Alice Apr 5 2013 at 11:47 pm #

    Happy birthday! Hm, my favorite present would probably be the piano that I got when I was 5. 🙂

  63. Ryshanne Mia Apr 6 2013 at 3:21 am #

    It would have to be my Legolas poster from my brother! Lol

  64. Ashley D. Apr 6 2013 at 3:26 am #

    The best present b-day present I’ve ever gotten… this is going to sound weird but probably my favorite present ever was a dvd copy of La Bamba that my brother got me. And it was probably the *only* present he’s ever gotten me. 😛

  65. Katy Apr 6 2013 at 4:13 am #

    The best birthday present I ever recieved was driving down to the Yorkshire Dales. I was able to imagine all the classic novels and their characters in a whole new way. I absolutely loved it!

  66. Katy Apr 6 2013 at 4:22 am #

    Sorry didn’t realize it was US and Canada only so please ignore previous comment

  67. Aline Apr 6 2013 at 8:33 am #

    Happy Birthday Ms Bardugo!!! Thanks for a great book!!!

  68. Ada Apr 6 2013 at 10:07 am #

    Hmmm, the best birthday present? I’d have to say it’s the actual surprise that my family actually surprised me when I woke up one time when I was a lot younger. I wouldn’t have guessed they would do it since we don’t usually celebrate birthdays like that. xD

  69. Larissa Apr 6 2013 at 10:08 am #

    The best birthday gift I have ever received were tickets to the wicked musical. It was the greatest musical ever!!

  70. Anne Apr 6 2013 at 11:00 am #

    The best birthday gift I ever got was from my boyfriend: a Ravenclaw scarf he saved up to buy me even though we were really extraordinarily broke. 🙂

  71. Rachel Apr 6 2013 at 11:01 am #

    Happy birthday! The best birthday present I ever received is a tie between concert tickets to see my favourite band or my trampoline. I love them both!

  72. Adrian Apr 6 2013 at 11:07 am #

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You have no idea how much I want to give you something. Like buy you a cake or big box of chocolates or something but alas I cannot 🙁 Perhaps if I ever see you on tour (whenever you come near where I live) then you shall receive presents from ALL the birthdays! (and the same goes for all you other PubCrawl members who I haven’t given b-day presents to)

    • Adrian Apr 6 2013 at 11:12 am #

      Also, my best b-day present I’ve gotten so far has been the Harry Potter box set (y’know, the one that looks like a trunk? with all the books in it? (IN HARDCOVER)) for my 12th or 13th birthday (I can’t even remember). The look on my face when I took it out of its delivery/mail box was priceless.

  73. Tatiana Apr 6 2013 at 11:08 am #

    The best birthday present I ever received was a bracelet from one of my camp kids. He had Aspergers and was really shy and stubborn, but also hilarious. None of the counsellors thought he liked us (even though we liked him), but when he heard it was my birthday, he quietly went to the camp store and bought me a camp bracelet. It made my week.

  74. Laura M Apr 6 2013 at 12:09 pm #

    The best birthday present I’ve ever received is 10 amazing books. One of which was Shadow and Bone. 🙂 I read all of them in like, a week and a half. They were ALL great.

  75. Christine Apr 6 2013 at 1:59 pm #

    Growing up, I didn’t really receive any presents for my birthday. But the best present was my Nintendo DS, I played it so much. It was basically my entire childhood.

  76. Doris Apr 6 2013 at 4:29 pm #

    Best birthday I ever received was probably my iPad.

  77. Jeann Apr 6 2013 at 4:59 pm #

    Happy birthday Leigh, what a thoughtful thing to reward your readers on this day! 🙂

  78. Kate Apr 6 2013 at 6:53 pm #

    The best gift I have ever received….Hmmm. Probably tickets to see Thoroughly Modern Millie. 🙂

  79. Elizabeth Apr 6 2013 at 8:47 pm #

    My best gift hasn’t happened yet it will be in June when i meet Neil Gaiman a week before my birthday.
    Other then that i think getting to meet Ian Somerhalder last year at Dragon*Con was my best gift.

  80. Iris Apr 7 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I am so excited for this giveaway!!

  81. Brynna Apr 7 2013 at 1:37 pm #

    Best birthday present ever? I really have no idea. One year I got an iPod nano, which is probably the birthday present I’ve spent the most time using! It was a pretty awesome present. Thank you mom and dad.

  82. Apr 7 2013 at 8:51 pm #

    yes! i can’t wait for this book.

  83. Maria Carvalho Apr 8 2013 at 8:52 am #

    Uhm… The best birthday gift I ever received was given to me by my brother. He knew how much I was adoring the Harry Potter series and that I was nearly finished with the 6th book, so he gave me “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”. I think I was never as happy as I was that morning. (:

  84. megan Apr 8 2013 at 11:32 am #

    best birthday present: my first phone in primary school.

  85. Vera R Apr 8 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    Books are the best gifts!

  86. Alyssa Apr 8 2013 at 9:35 pm #

    A jewelery box that are a bunch of old, antiqued stacked books. OR an embossing stamp for my books that says From The Library Of Alyssa Hamilton with my initials in the middle. Both are SO beautiful and me and unique.

  87. Kateri Ransom Apr 9 2013 at 1:12 am #

    Happy Belated Birthday!
    I have had this gem on my TBR list FOREVER!
    And my best gift was a blanket my best friend made me! I sleep with it every night and think how awesome it is that she’s my friend!

  88. Kateri Ransom Apr 9 2013 at 1:14 am #

    Happy belated birthday!
    I’ve had this gem on my TBR list FOREVER! It needs to happen, seriously!
    The best gift I was ever given was when my best friend made me a blanket. I sleep with it every night and am reminded of how awesome it is to have a friend like her!

  89. SP at OH! Paper Page Apr 9 2013 at 3:45 am #

    The best bday gift I ever received was a handmade book necklace that I found on Etsy. It is made from vintage leather and real parchment paper. I love it!

  90. Sydney Apr 10 2013 at 8:45 pm #

    Happy (belated) Birthday! I really want to read this book – it sounds amazing. 🙂

  91. SKHansen Apr 11 2013 at 10:53 am #

    Happy Belated Birthday! I can’t wait to read Siege and Storm!

  92. Lisa @ Fic Talk Apr 11 2013 at 10:56 am #

    The best birthday present I’ve ever received would be a halve of a Best Friend Forever Keychain that my BFF gave to me when we were in school together that I still carry around with me today (it’s been more than 10 years since she gave it to me and we’ve been BFFs since we were 5 and it’s been 20 years since we met) *sigh*

  93. kaye Apr 11 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    I don’t know that I can quantify what is the best. The best is a sunny day and a happy birthday from people I love. The best is being able to attend my favorite band around my birthday with people I love. It’s the drive to the venue and singing with the windows down.

  94. Brandy Apr 11 2013 at 12:06 pm #

    Happy belated birthday! 🙂 I’m really excited to read Shadow & Bone… soonish. lol Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

    Best birthday present? Hmm… When I turned 12 my aunt gave me a ring that had been in the family for a few generations. It lives in a ring box in my dresser, but I definitely cherish it and the memory of her giving it to me. 🙂

  95. Hong Apr 11 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    The best gift I ever received was my favorite card game Jungle Speed. It’s so much fun to play with friends!!

  96. Gellie @ A Discombob Apr 11 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    Happy Birthday, Leigh!! *throws confetti and glitter*

    My best birthday present was the charm bracelet my mom gave me for my 13th bday. All my older girl cousins got one for their 13th, so when it finally came time for me to get one I felt so old and so mature (which I was still neither). But even so many years later I still love getting charms for it 🙂

    Great giveaway! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

    The best gift I received was a surprise trip to Rome! We were living abroad at the time, but I was totally surprised when I was told to pack a bag and not told where we were going. Of course, the hubby has used that trip as a way to weasel out of every other birthday!

    Happy belated birthday! I think the best present I’ve ever received was a telescope because I used to really be into astronomy 🙂

    Ahh I’ll be in Oregon in May, not April. Happy birthday! Sounds so great.

    The best present I ever received? A pair of rollerblades on my 7th? 8th? birthday.

    Hope you had a happy birthday, Leigh! The best birthday present I’ve gotten is gorgeous, sturdy luggage. Which sounds boring, I know, but I’ve got wanderlust like crazy and haven’t been able to travel much. I’m hoping that gift is a sign of good things to come 🙂

    Happy belated birthday! Man, I’ve always wanted to go to Powell’s and that’s such an awesome excuse to, but unfortunately I’m on the other side of the country.

    Of course, when I think of best birthday gifts my mind goes right to food. My parents got me a whole black tie mousse cake from Olive Garden one year as my birthday cake. If you’ve never had Olive Garden’s black tie mousse cake, let me just tell you…it is to die for. I mean, literally, it will kill you. But you’ll die happy!

    Books or book-related things are always nice too. 🙂

    Hmmm… I would have to go with a few years back when my hubby took me for Red Lobster and then to Chapters book shopping :). The fun thing was he took me out so our friends could set up a surprise party for me <3

    As much as you can imagine, I have much to attend to, what with the Wizard’s unexpected departure. Still Montgomery to Memphis in over 8 years. But people expect this sort of thing and you have to save time and several thousand dollars in the bank, then you are not realistic.
