Thanks for stopping by. I love it all-it would all go so adorably into my little girl's room which is done in shabby chic. Her name is Gabby and we have a plaque that says "Shabby Gabby Oh So Chic"

I'd like to enter and I'm a follower! Cute stuff!

My 21st was kind of lame.. My birthday was on a Sunday, so we couldn't really go out on Saturday night..so we just went to Bennigans and I ordered a "Chocolate Covered Cherry" ice cream drink. It apparently had booze in it but you couldn't tell lol. Boy how things have changed since then...now it has to be red wine, martinis or beer!

Lisa said...

Pretty, pretty, pretty!

I keep thinking I need to make a faux cupcake - they're so cute.

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

Congratulations on both your 21st birthday and your 100th post. You collect such pretty things that I would love to win. I have been an early follower. You certainly have acquired a following having only started blogging in March.

I was on a company bowling team when I turned 21. I spent my birthday at the bowling lane with other ladies from work. I was the youngest among them. I ordered a screwdriver and told the bartender this is my first drink. He didn't say anything. I think he thought I meant the first drink of the evening, not my first legal drink ever. I was hoping it would be free, but not so.

Dawn said...

We've all been waiting to see what goodies you had for us. How did I know it would include a cupcake!

For my 21st b-day my best friends took me out to one of those restaurants where the chef cooks in a center island and throws knives around. That was a little over half of my life ago! No wonder I don't remember the name.

Happy BIRTHDAY! Your 21st! OMG! My son's is in Dec and he is just dieing. I said "Why? You already drink?" KIDS!
Enter me - enter me - It'd all go GREAT in my house!
My 21st birthday . . . that was 30 years ago kiddo Let's see . . . we all went out to dinner to Marina del Rey; my Mom, my boyfriend (now husband) my sister and bil. And I requested a screwdriver, because that was the only drink i knew. (don't you dare laugh!) Anyway - I got a doggie bag, and it leaked steak juice all over my new dress on the way home, and all the pictures of me with my cake and presents on my 21st birthday are of me wearing my sister's bathrobe.
How's that for stupid?
LOL
Happy day Alison! Have a great time!

vintage at heart said...

Thanks for offering!

Happy Birthday...how sweet of you to give us something on your birthday. Well, I was married 4 days before my 21st birthday...so I was on my honeymoon on my 21st birthday...and this year we'll be celebrating 16 years. I hope you have a wonderful 21st birthday!

Tracey said...

Hi Allison,
I hope you are having a wonderful Birthay celebration. I don't remember what I did on my 21st Birthday...guess it was too long ago LOL!!
Tracey :)

Sares said...

Sign me up, I'm in! What a great giveaway Alli, I like your cupcake too! I am not one to celebrate my Birthday much. I probably just stayed home. I don't drink alcohol, which seem to be how most 21 year olds celebrate, but I can't stand the taste of the stuff. Except Kahlua. I'm a lightweight. I know, I'm BORING. I hope your day is lots more FUN!

Barb said...

Allison,
Happy 21st Birthday!!!

This is indeed a huge celebration.

Love you little cupcake, and the other goodies are so sweet.

OOOPS! Forgot to tell you something about my 21st birthday!

I am 60, and can barely remember yesterday, so have no clue what happened at that time.
Knowing my lifestyle then, I probably had a "party Hardy"!! =0)

I don't know why it took 2 days for your post to come up on my reader? Hmmm....anyway, on my 21st birthday there was a surprise birthday party at my sisters house and my husband got me a 1969 yellow volkswagon beetle convertible! I loved and miss that car:( Hope you had a memorable birthday sweetie!

Adie said...

I had an amazing 21st birthday with friends and family....and a tequila dentist chair. They spun me around in the chair tipped me back and filled me up with tequila. Needless to say I did not even make it to midnight! Happy 21st, be safe whatever you choose to do!

Sandi said...

OH my goodness honey...I remember absolutely nothing about my 21st birthday. I suppose I was busy with baby number one as she was 6 months old at the time. That was a longggggggg time ago in 1980!! HA!!
Blessings~

Hi Alli! Happy 21st Birthday and 100th post. Oooh I love the cupcake. Being a diabetic I cannot have sweets so this would be one cupcake I could have. I gotta have that cupcake. I signed up to follow your blog, and would so love for you to pop over to mine and sign up as well. My sister pretty much told our story above (Debbie @ There's An Angel on My Frontporch.) We were both expecting on her 21st, and I had just delivered my daughter on my 21st birthday 2 years later, so I know we were at home. Enjoy being young just don't have to much fun. Country Hugs sweetie, Sherry

Happy birthday, a bit late but still full of blessings! Please enter me in your lovely giveaway and I hope your day was very special!

Laurie said...

Well, I wrote this in an earlier comment, but my 21st birthday was all about what I would be able to finally do legally: drink and gamble. Not that I ever did too much of either, but just the idea that I could. My favorite memory is of having dinner with my parents and my half brother at a steakhouse on my actual birthday!

Cathy said...

Hey sweetie...I am so glad that you asked about or 21st birthday!!!

My dad gave me a solid gold Britsish Sovereign charm...I was stunned!!! He had always been very generous with cash but never a really big gift giver...he even picked it out all by himself!!! I think it may be the only gift he ever gave me that my mom was not involved in!!!

Since he passed away almost 3 years ago...this has become one of my most prized possessions!!! I love the memories attached to it!!! I love that it reminds me of him...most of all!!!

Good luck with your give away!!!

Enjoy!!!
XOXO
Cathy

Cathy said...

I can't believe I missed your birthday!!! I am so sorry!!!

Howdy Alli
Well I am back .
I wrote a really long note about my 21st birthday than deleted it and left you a small but polite comment but I have really needed to come back and tell you I love your blog,your giveaway is fabulous and my 21st birthday was a sad day in our family so I had put it behind me until you ask.
Let's just say that life has its ups and downs so when you get lemons always add some sugar and make Lemonade and always share .
Blessings of love,health and joy to you always.
Big Hugs
