39

Hello!

It's my birthday today...39! I'm not one of those who gets all stressed about getting older. I'm grateful for all 39 years..for my health and my family and their health. Anyways I wanted to celebrate with a little giveaway...it's little but from my heart. I'm giving away my Home Sweet Home stamp set (I hope you don't mind that it's a sample...it's perfect, nothing wrong with it...just no packaging) and two products I can't live without...especially during the colder months.



Here's a sorry a** selfie I tried to do (about two months ago)...I give up on those! But I thought it would be fun to write some facts about myself...

1. I was born in Dusseldorf, Germany, grew up in Canada and moved to Croatia when I finished highschool.

2. I panic!!! I'm panicky...just call me Mrs. Panic! My uncle, God bless him, always wanted me to be a flight attendant...can you picture that!!!! A little turbulance and the flight attendant is frozen with fear! :)

3. Out of the Friends cast Monica, Rachel and Phoebe I am most like Phoebe!

4. I wanted to be an actress when I was little...in elementary school I was in so many plays and totally ROCKED it! LOL When I went to highschool I became very shy!

5. I taught English for a couple of years before I got married.

6. I talk to myself...or as I like to say it...'think out loud'! :)


There you go...nothing too exciting...hence the blog name plain jane! :) So if you'd like to participate in my giveaway which is open internationally please just leave me a comment and I'll announce the winner on Monday! xo
Pin It!

No need to enter my name in the drawing as I am allergic to Burt's Bees products:(

Happy birthday Jane! I liked reading your bio. You have had an interesting 39 years and I suspect that the next 39 will also be filled with blessings :)

sretan rođendan i sve najbolje vam želim.
Prelijepi ste na ovoj fotografiji,baš poput glumice :)
Ja isto volim razmišljati na glas pa me muž često pita dali to opet sa mačkom razgovaram(to je jako ozbiljan razgovor s mačkom hi-hi)
Još jednom sve najbolje i godine nisu bitne,bitno je kako se Vi osjećate!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Sorry to be tardy to the party but just wanted to let you know it only gets better..cherish each moment because the time keeps going faster. Love the selfie. I don't like those either. I choose not to be in pictures. Really do not like to see myself in photos. No sure why. Anyway hope it was a great day. Cheers to you. Thanks for sharing.
