  1. I love everything. Breakfast at Tiffany’s favorite movie, in fact I just had my birthday party theamed after it. Sweet Tea, true southern girl here. Candy, can’t live a day without it. White and black are the only colors in the world! Dang I think we’re just alike…I could go on for days why I love each of your items. Happy Birthday!

  2. I lover everything TOO!! BTW…Happy Birthday to you!!!!
    This was a hard one…but hands down I LOVE JESUS the MOST!!! So I would have to say the Women’s Bible!!! I love pretty much ANYTHING from Target too!! and well..pretty much EVERYTHING you put in there!!LOL!!

  3. Happpy Birthday! I’m a follower (duh). I’m in love with all of your items – but the two that stick out the most are: The CELERY color spray paint (b/c I just redid my living room with that color, believe it or not!) and The ADORABLE apron – b/c lets face it, it’s adorable!!!

    Have an awesome birthday! Love your blog!

  4. Such fun stuff. I need those Sharpie’s though. I always want to buy the big rainbow set at Costco, but I know that my daughter will just get ahold of them and color on something that shouldn’t be colored on!!

  5. Happy Birthday! and what a great post I must add! I love Old Navy and Target but I think my favorite item on your list would have to be the photo from snapfish. I just never seem to have enough photos of my wonderful beautiful family!

  6. Happy Birthday!!! This is such a fun way for us all to celebrate with you!!! I too am really, really into special plates!!! That’s my pick!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Such fantastic things! If I had to narrow it down I would go with the Paris picture! I was fortunate enough to visit Paris a couple years ago and can’t wait to go back! Happy birthdday!

  8. First of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And I am a follower already, and I LOVE your blog. I have found so many inspiring things that I want to do to my house! So thank you for the inspiration! Out of the 27 things on your list, I must say that I would want either the onesies, because I have just opened my online boutique featuring screen printing on onesies!! or the chalk ink, ( I have a funny story, My sister, when she was pregnant, did the same thing and wanted to eat my chalk :P) The sharpies, because I LOVE sharpies, I would honestly rather write with a sharpie than anything, OR The gift card for flip flops, because I had a ton of them like a year ago, and then when I packed them to go to Lake Powell, someone put the jet-ski battery on my bag and it ATE THROUGH IT! Totally demolishing my flip flips! It was so funny.

  9. what a wonderful post! Happy Birthday to you! I love each thing you do- I think the one that stands out is the picture developed from Snapfish! I am due in Aug. with our 2nd girl and I would love a picture of me pregnant made! Thanks for a chance to win!

  10. Oooo, can I play???? I am a follower and I live right down the street so you won’t have to pay for shipping, lol!!!! I love almost everything. Ummmm, the women’s bible(I love JESUS too!), the apron, the pitcher and glass, and you are selling Paris honey! I’m starting to love the little pictures you have! Happy birthday darling!!!! Smooches!

  11. Man I can’t pick between the spray paint and the target $20 for shoes. I guess I pick the spray paint. I am just in love with spray painting things recently!!!!

    To be honest I think I would pick every single item on your list. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Great giveaway, and clever. Happy Birthday. I’d have to go with the old navy favorite!! Skittles came a close 2nd! I too, am having a giveaway as well if you’d like to enter mine!

  13. Well first off, let me say what an amazing job you do on your blog. Always so fun to look at. I’m not going to put in for myself, but instead for Tracee. So I’m going to pick the baby onesies, and if I (she) wins, then you are more than welcome to send them to her!:)
    Love ya,
    and Happy Bday!

  14. Well let’s see. . . since we are both May babies I dont even need to say we’re soul sisters; it should be obvious! I love love love candy, but am on a new diet but Steve (your soon to be new BFF), LOVES them. He color coordinates them when he eats them! I love Jesus and can only give Him credit for where I am today. You know what I’ve been through and I would love a Women’s Bible just for ME! That would be perfect to unwind with at the end of the day. I also love pictures and am in serious need of some in my place (I’ll pretent you know since you STILL havent been over), hahaha. I LOVE Target! Mya and I wear their shoes like crazy. I just got her a pair that attacked her poor feet though but I guess you are never too young to know that beauty is pain. I also love me some Old Navy. You know I worked for their sister GAP for 5 years so I like to keep it in the family! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would love the pitcher and glasses too because they would give me a perfect excuse to speak with an English accent, that’s how sophisticated they’d make me feel. And you KNOW once I get a computer I’ll follow you, so for now I just sneak in and watch you sleep. . . does that count? HAHAHA LOVE YOU!

  15. You have great taste. I think I love all the things you do… And the ones I haven’t heard of before I think I love now, too ๐Ÿ™‚ And a laughed about your lemon comment. Unless the kitchen smells like lemon my husband won’t believe it is clean! Happy Birthday!

  16. I love so many of the same things! It is going to be hard to narrow it down. I think the Better Homes and Gardens magazine sinceI keep buying them, but never subscribe.

    Have a great birthday! Hope hubby and the kids absolutely spoil you.

  17. WOW! What to choose, what to choose? I love the women’s Bible. I’ve never heard of that on and would love to try it. However, I’m also 8 1/2 months pregnant and I think those high heels would make my post baby body feel hot even though it prob won’t be for a while: )

    I hope you get some good stuff too since it is YOUR birthday!

  18. Cutest.giveaway.idea.ever. Just so ya know.

    I found your site a few days ago and fell in love with it immediately! In fact, I left it up on my screen and walked away. All of a sudden, I hear this music coming from our computer room and I assumed my hubby was playing something. After going about my duties with the lovely music in the background, I discovered it was coming from your playlist! Loved it all!

    Hmmm..what would I want from this fantastic list…ok, first choice would be the organizer thing for my office–loved the thought of having ONE PLACE for my scissors! (Quickest item in my house to magically disappear!) Second choice would be spray paint!

    And Happy, Happy Birthday to you! May your generosity come back to you!

  19. Oh, and one more comment (not trying to get another entry)—the best way to make your house always smell like lemon is with a lemongrass scented candle. Divine.

  20. Oh, I love this!! And, I confirm we are in face soul sisters!! I love the sub to Better Homes & Gardens. I just blogged about them a couple days ago!

  21. Well first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I would be thrilled to have the Target gift card. My hubby and I were shopping just three days ago and I saw some adorable mustard flats. I was upset that I was not able to buy them (since we are on a budget). But enough of my woes….lol….I would be SO excited to get them for summer!

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. Happy Birthday! Aren’t you sweet for hosting this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Well hello there, soul mate! ๐Ÿ˜‰ First, let me wish you a very merry 27. Next, let me say: DANG WE HAVE A LOT IN COMMON! I love SOOOOOOOOO many of these things! I’m cravin’ Skittles as we speak (specifically the red one), wishing I could drop all, kick of my super cute shoes, put on my flip flops, and curl up under a blanket with a good book! However, should you pick me I think I’d like the 16X20 pic….you see- I have this newnre baby whose face I can’t enough of…..THANKS FOR HOSTING YOUR FIRST GIVEAWAY! I truly enjoy your site without them, but who doesn’t like a special treat now and then? ๐Ÿ™‚

    If I win your giveaway I would like your sweet little bible ๐Ÿ™‚ Jesus Definitely is my Homeboy ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I AM THE MOST INDECISIVE PERSON IN THE WORLD SO I CAN’T CHOOSE JUST ONE! I’ll have to decide between #2, (I love magazines to gather ideas!) #3 spray paint….need I say more? ๐Ÿ˜‰ #4 I really need to go back to church, I work on Sundays so it’s not possible yet but I do not have a Bible. I need one!! Again happy birthday!!!! love your favorite things…I can honestly say I love all those things too!!!

  26. My lucky day to find you on your birthday! My big 3-0 was yesterday, sniff! I am now a follower, and of course I love Jesus the most, but I love my marked-up bible, so my vote will be SHOES + TARGET! Yay! Happy B-day!

  27. Happy, HAPPY birthday! I just found your blog lastnight, and spent about an hour rummaging through all your old posts…I’m in love! And I found you just in time for your first giveaway?! How cool!
    I love everything, and I am torn between the apron and the book “bringing up boys”. My little guy is one, and is he EVER A BOY. It may do me some good ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. Just happened upon your blog and what luck – a give-away! I love treats, all treats, and especially ones you eat with fun spoons! I don’t have any fun spoons like that and would love something fun to eat my ice cream, custard, or chocolate mousse with! Fun blog!

  29. Wow! Only 27?? I am only two years older than you but you already have accomplished so much. You inspire me daily as I follow your blog! You are so creative and I LOVE to be crafty. It’s my outlet. I also have two boys and a girl (soon to be four kids though). Happy Birthday!!! Picking a fav item from 27 is sooo difficult but…I think with my three going on four kids I could really use the chalkboard ink. I love writing everything down. Lists to kingdom come! Lol
    I’ve never used chalkboard ink before but it sounds great. Also, I love the apron! Lemons are refreshing, bright, clean and believe it or not, I only own ONE apron! So either item would be marvelous!! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  30. Happy 27th girlie! What a amazing way to celebrate your day! I loved all your fav things! I think we recently discussed that we share a few fav things! Remember that fab fav things party you hosted!?! I didnt know we have the same Bible! Dont you LOVE that Bible its the best!

  32. Aaah! How to choose. I love the paint or the shoes or the apron. But I think the paint would be great. I loved your post from the other day with the celery table. It made me laugh thinking about that cat! Happy Birthday!

  33. I think we are really soul sisters! I would love the Bible for sure. I need to spend some more one and one time with my Father! Of course I am also a total lip gloss girl who would love to curl up with a good blanket and read the Bible with a handful of Skittles to munch on while the lovely scent of the outdoor breeze eminates from a nearby candle. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a happy happy birthday!

  34. Happy Birthday! Geez I can’t pick, lol! Mmmmm vanilla candles are one of my favs… but I think I’d have to go with the Sound of Music! I hate waiting around for it to be on ABC Family, lol!

  35. I just wanted to say…I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! I saw your hallway signs on U Create’s blog and I’ve been looking at your blog ever since and I just LOVE it! I also wanted to wish you the Happiest Birthday ever!!

    So, I saw your blog early this morning and I couldn’t decide which was my favorite because I just love them all, we must be soul sister ๐Ÿ™‚ Lol… So I think I decided I LOVE the pen/office organizer thing. My husband and I just bought our first house and I’ve been doing little projects to dress it up and I think that would be perfect in my kitchen. We just keep our pens in a cup..lame! But I never thought of one of would be just perfect!!

    I *LOVE* your entire list. But if I had to choose one, I would have to choose #19 musicals! I too share in that love ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have yet to own Pollyanna…
    Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  41. #26 the Caddy is divine! I love to organize too! And I have to agree I love to use things in ways they are were not meant to be used. I have this bamboo box for tea bags that I use to store craft supplies in. I would adore adding this to my collection.

    BTW I am a follower and I have posted this giveaway in my blog.

  42. Just found you over at Studio 5’s Blogspotter. Happy Birthday! What a fun idea to do a giveaway. ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Hi Destiny!!
    Just wanted to stop by and let you know I have passed on an award to you today…check out my blog

  45. Hey there!
    Not entering the giveaway as I am a first time visitor (now, that would be cheeky!), just stopping by to say I hope you had a lovely birthday!

  46. We are very similar in a lot of ways girl!!
    I love me some candy, shoes are an addiction, flour sack towels are the best, I have too much fun with musicals and vanilla candles are my fav!! =)

  47. Happy Birthday!!!!

    Well, I am a follower. I will be honest, just became one, however, I have been reading your blog, for a while. I started reading it when you posted pics of the nursery.


  48. Happy Birthday!!!!!

    OK, my favs, from your list. That’s a hard choice to pick only one….
    I mean the lemon apron is lovely..I luurrvv lemons, I make an awesome lemonade, just planted a tree in my backyard.

    the chalkboard pens are awesome. I just started using chalkboard paint, EVERYWHERE!!!
    I love Jesus, and right now going through some touch moments, so I am in desperate need of a bible.

    The dessert plates are awesome….It’s my thought that all meals no matter how big or small deserve the proper “dress” in the form of some delish plates.

    and of course candy is the best, I especially love the orange and lemon flavored startburst. ๐Ÿ™‚


  49. Hydrangeas! Those are one of my favorites (you know because they are all over my house) I love them because if you pair a bright blue Hydrangea with yellow, they look springy and happy, but dark red or brown can look romantic and classy…either way, they are my fave to decorate with ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. oh there are so many favorite things to choose from, its so hard! ๐Ÿ™‚ I would have to say Target though because I never buy myself things like those super cute shoes, and this would give me the perfect excuse to!

    I just found your blog, I was linked here from Kind Over Matter for your hallway, and I loved it so I went to the main page & found this! I’m a little bit late (I have almost 300 blogs I subscribe to in my GoogleReader, it takes a while to get through them all, haha.) but I wanted to wish you a happy belated birthday anyway!

    My blog/store name (Okay, so I haven’t really created either one of them yet… haha.) comes from Breakfast at Tiffany’s! My name is Holly & I couldn’t come up with a good name for my blog/store and someone suggested it & it’s great!

    I love a ton of the things that you posted, haha. I’m having a hard time trying to figure out which one is my favourite! Hmm.. I’m in Canada so the sweet tea that we have tastes different, but every time I go to the States I looove getting it!

    But those dish towels look beautiful! Haha.

    I looove flowers though! My boyfriend got my some orchids for Valentine’s Day & they’re still doing great (even though I’m pretty bad with flowers! The only thing i can keep alive is bamboo. And barely! Haha.). They’re just so pretty. & I would do better with fake flowers, haha.

    And linen spray! Plus you guys have different brands and flavours in the States!

    But Paris! Ahhhh. (I actually live about 15 minutes away from Paris. Paris, ONTARIO. Haha.)

    Ooh and blankets… hahaha. I’ve got three blankets that I’m making right know (crocheting and knitting).

    Okay, I think we’re just going to have to become penpals. I’ll send you stuff from Canada, you send me stuff from the States. Deal? Hahahaha.

    Hope you had a great birthday! (and sorry this is so long!)

  52. Oh my goodness there’s so much I love on your list. Cupcakes are my fav dessert! I love my Mom’s Bible, so many encouraging words. Lip gloss is key! Spray paint is like duck tape, it fixes everything! I make a great mint green tea, lemonade that would look great in that pitcher! Big time reader, have you read Karen Kingsbury? She is my favorite Christian author, her books are so amazing.
    I think I’ve said enough! Happy belated birthday!!

  53. Destiny this is a great way to celebrate you day. I love you blog and Iโ€™m more like a stalker then a follower. LOL I have some many things I want to run out and bye now after reading this โ€ฆbut I would have to say the women’s BIBLE:0) โ€ฆJesus needs me and I need him. Thanks for sharing your special day with us. Youโ€™re amazing! HUGS ๐Ÿ™‚

  54. Ooohh, so many awesome products!! I love shoes but NEVER seem to have enough. So ..I would love the gift card to Old Navy or Target!

    Happy Birthday!!
