Internet Besties, Crafty Mamas and Birthday Surcies!

Happy Monday, Loyals! Oh I can hardly contain my excitement about Birthday Surcie Week here at ILYMTC. So as not to detract from today's giveaway host, here's the down low on this week: I turn twenty-nine on Friday. Every day this week, I'm partnering with a super awesome mama who offered to help celebrate my birthday by giving away something, you guessed it, super awesome.

On Friday, I'll personally be giving away a little something extra special. Why? because let's face it: I love presents. And I love my Loyals.  

Birthday Surcie Week kicks off with someone near and dear to my heart. Meet Annie. Annie and I have been "internet friends" for years. YEARS. And earlier this year, during my visit to Nashville, TN I finally got to squeeze her neck IN REAL LIFE and I may or may not have teared up a little when she dropped me off at the airport later that day to return home to Maryland.

Annie is a beautiful soul, an amazing mother and an incredibly talented crafter. 
I'm so happy to be sharing her with you today!

Happy Birthday Week AP!!! 
Last year in your 20's!  Live it up sista!!!
Don't worry, 30's not near as bad as you might think! 

Hey Loyals!  I'm Annie, accounts payable, cubicle sitter by day, sewer & crafter by night, living in Nashville, TN.  I'm married to that handsome man right there in the picture with me and mommy to that little cutie pie to my right.  They are the absolute joy of my soul! 

I'm thrilled to be here on ILYMTC today!  I've been following AP long before Carter was born, back when she wined and dined, traveled and shopped and indulged in biweekly mani's and pedi's.  Boy how time changes us.  Rather, motherhood changes us.  She's been one of my favorites as long as I can remember.  I loved her as a wife to M and loving dog mom to Sheepie, but now as a mom to Carter & Maclane, I love her even more.  

Now, a little about me.  I love Jesus.  I love all things crafty, vintage, handmade.  Joann & Hobby Lobby get most of my money.  Oh, and Target.  I'm extremely Type A- loving lists and spreadsheets.  I enjoy taking pictures and finding the beauty in all things, big and small, old and new.  In my next life I'll be a hair dresser.  I have a little hobby on the side of sewing and wood working.  Slowly but surely my love is becomming more than just a hobby.   In addition to all this fun, we are building our new house out in the country, hopefully to be completed NO LATER than March 2013. 

You can find me blogging about all this craziness at The Farrar Four.  I'd love you forever if you'd come on over and follow along! 

Now, for what y'all are here for...THE GIVEAWAY!
For ILYMTC readers, I'm offering one of my life size rulers! 

What better way to watch your kiddos grow 
than to mark them on this hand stained and painted life size ruler!  
No more marking up the door frame and leaving it when you move.
This beauty can go with you.

Each ruler is 6 feet tall, starting at 6 inches and measuring up to 6 1/2 feet.
Each has a hanger on the back for easy hanging and display.
