One for me, and one for you


My birthday is next week...i can't believe my birthday is next week.  That means it's October already.  Insanity.  S is getting a little disgruntled about what to get me, since he is of the school of thought that i don't need anything.  (Again, insanity.)  Though he may be right....so instead i've asked him to focus on the bedroom.  And while it might be nice to add some new furniture to the bedroom-like a bookcase headboard, or an unbroken dresser-i'd rather he just paint the darn room.

He wouldn't even have to buy the paint.  You are hearing me right.  For my birthday, I am asking him to merely paint the bedroom with paint I have already purchased.  Doesn't this seem like a no brainer?  I know all of you have worshipping husbands or partners who would happily set about this task, right?  Where did i go wrong?

I digress. 

Since clearly my thoughtfulness knows no bounds, next Friday, October 8th, my birthday, the cape on the corner will be having it's very first giveaway!!  So put your party hats on and come back for a giveaway  to one of our favorite online stores, CSN.com!


No, that is not my tattoo (though I wish it was, love that spot).  Images from we heart it.

Stopping by from NFF although I already know you so you're not a new friend!

I hope he comes through with the painting...I've definitely had to beg for stuff like that too so you're not alone. Happy (early) birthday!

To get my Hubby to paint I have to tape and tarp the room and get all the stuff out then it might happen. That's alright though because Peanut and I give him presents like, look we cleaned your car and your rims look nice now.

Girl I was thinking that was your cute little tattoo! Oh well. Hey good luck with getting your room painted. Men some have these uber cooperative hubbys and others like me are on their own! Oh and I'll be back to help celebrate your birthday!

Haha, my hubs will paint an entire room all by himself...

...cept the trim. No fun, no fair!! He just does the quick roll and says "surprise!!!". Well, he USED to before schooling anyways.

Hopefully yours comes through for you!! How fun with a giveaway too! Happy early birthday!
