Whoopie!! A Give Away!!

A week ago today, I celebrated my 42nd birthday at Paula Deen's restaurant, The Lady and Sons in Savannah, Georgia. This is the photo of my son, serving me the most wonderful "hoecakes" (cornbread) ever (seriously--the most incredibly delicious food). Had a wonderful vacation, and I feel like celebrating a bit more...

So I'm going to draw a couple random names on Sunday for WIP kits. Be sure to leave a comment, and have an awesome weekend, ya'll!! (said in my best Paula impersonation...)

Happy Birthday! I'm 42 this year, too, and it's an awesome place to be! Beautiful kits, BTW!

Happy Birthday to you! And may I say, it would seem better than my real birthday if I could win a WIP kit! I just got my first one last month.... and oh my!! It is sooooo awesome! Thanks for the opportunity!

Happy belated Birthday wishes, my "Willow" friend... I feel your pain 'cause I will be turning 42 on this upcoming Monday, the 13th (of course it's our first night of Vacation Bible School)... Thank you for another generous giveaway! I have to admit that one of your lovely kits would really make my day, week, year, lol!

Kristi said...

I turned 42 back in April (Tax Day). We love watching Paula Deen too! I hope to someday visit her restaurant! With a woman who loves butter that much, how can you go wrong at that restaurant. I would love to have one your WIP kits! They are always so fresh and inspiring!!

CathyB said...

Happy Birthday! Apparently the world is being overrun by 42 year old women, because my birthday is next month and I too will be...42! We all rock! How neat to be able to go to Paula's actual restaurant! Thanks for the chance and you too have a wonderful weekend!

Tracy said...

Happy Birthday, Trish - sure looks like you had fun ... all birthdays are cause for celebration and I am always pleased when we acknowledge ourselves and spend these special moments with our families ...

mmmm .... that cornbread looks yummy - we don't have any restaurants serving that here in South Africa ...

(I'm being cheeky here) how about sending me a recipe if you have the time ... (gardinert@telkomsa.net)

Oh, btw, always love having WIP kits ...

Love, Tracy G (Durban, South Africa)
