Becky's Second Annual Big Birthday Giveaway!

It is officially Birthday Week at Casa Wickstrom, which means two things:

1. tears
2. THE BIG BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY (click here to see last year's bounty).
The only thing more fun than waking up on your birthday morning to cupcakes in bed, two first-class tickets to Paris, 17 pairs of Louboutins and the keys to a brand new car is GIVING SOMEONE YOU LOVE A FABULOUS GIFT! This week is all about gift giving.

Tomorrow I'm giving you the (long, LONG OVERDUE) American Idol Finale Fashion Dissection (archives here). GET EXCITED!

All week I'll share share birthday tips and gift ideas (for others, not me, silly)! And even my worst birthday EVER. (Maybe you'll share yours and we can commiserate).

It's going to be an exciting week!

Feel the birthday spirit by entering THE BIG BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!

How to enter:
* Leave a comment on this post (it can be anything) by Saturday, July 11, before 11 p.m. MST. (One comment per person, please.)
* I will randomly pick a winner and send you a fantastic gift.
* In two weeks, I'll post a special "Becky's Picks," revealing my favorite items.
* Good luck!

Hi Sis, I am putting a package in tomorrows mail for your birthday. Actually it is something that you wanted, so Hooray. I can't wait for the American Idol post on your blog, so keep blogging. My worst birthday? Every birthday is great... so really can't think of a worst. Sorry. I am so glad that you and Chris have finally settled in, even if it's not your dream home. That will come in time. The family reunion was great although we missed you and Chris and Derrick. Only 9 days until your brother comes home. Have a great week, and know that I love You. Love, Mom

Did you really get 17 pairs of shoes, 2 first class tix to Paris & a new car? Or was that hypothetical? If it was real then can I please have your life?!

Happy Birthday!!!

Jessica F. said...

I am SO hoping that of all the things you got a new car. That YOU picked out! Hope you have the best birthday week EVER!!!

Totally missing you BTW!

Rachel said...

It's almost your birthday. Don't forget to open my present to you. :) Sad I'm not there to celebrate.

Kara said...

I love your perfect birthday. The only thing that would make it better is a questionable massage in San Francisco. I think this week you should go downstairs from your apt. and buy a little something for yourself from a certain store... every day.

Have a superb week!

Holly said...

I think I need to win this year, because I miss you the most! :)

DC Diva said...

I was JUST thinking about your birthday giveaway from last year, yesterday. I thought, "Only Becky GIVES to OTHERS on HER birthday. That girl is amazing and I miss her so much."

Then I log on this morning and see you're doing it again.

Please bless I win. Please bless you give me your gifts in person. ;)

Omigosh, it's MY birthday this week TOO, AND Heather told me we share the SAME BIRTHDAY!!! AHHH!!! That should definitely warrant the gift, right? :) I am your newest blog stalker :) And I told Heather I want to be friends, even though she's very protective of you and doesn't want to share... Anyway, so yeah, Saturday. Isn't having 7-11 the BEST? People always remember your birthday since it rhymes, and you get free slurpees (I mean, everyone does but it's your BIRTHDAY on top of it!)BTW, SOOOO excited about In the Toilet. Can't wait!!

Rachel said...

Happy Birthday Week!! If I win you would save on shipping! :) Let's get together sometime soon regardless! And the reason your shoes are in your bathroom is because your bathroom is HUGE! Love you!

jen said...

Alex M. said...

Happy Birthday Week! We miss you.

Harley King said...

I bet I don't win because I'm a boy. And I know you've already bought a bunch of girl presents.

But you have to play to win.

Becky said...

I think I need to win most this year because my name is Becky too!

Kelsey said...

It's really too bad I wasn't born one day earlier or you one day later because we're just out of reach of EVER sharing the same birthday week. Oh well, here's to sharing the same birthday month! AND we're coming to Utah August 15-21 so we need to start planning a get-together NOW!

aniC said...

oh please oh please oh please pick me!! i never win anything. and if there is anything i really DO want to win, it's your fabulous picks!!
i hope you have a great birthday week...even if it is in utah? perhaps my birthday gift to you will be for me to get over your move and stop bringing up the fact that you are in utah.

Sarah S said...

I'm one of Wendy's diva friends, Sarah, and I'm hoping I win! Your posts are hilarious.

Aunt Tami said...

Jessica said...

I miss you like crazy! I hope you have the BEST Birthday Week ever!!!!!

Krista said...

Happy Birthday! I hope I win. The only thing I have ever won was a bottle of wine and I don't drink. Go figure!
I hope to see you this way soon.

Nickie said...

Hi Honey, Am I eliminated if I post more than one comment on your birthday blog giveaway. It's alright, cuz I win just because you are my daughter!! You will have a wonderful birthday because you not only have a great husband, but you have great friends!! Congrats. Love, Mom

Seige said...

You are just so thoughtful! I love all the things you do for others. I hope it all comes back to you times 10 (or 10000) :)
Happy Happy Birthday!

I had to post a comment to you on your b-day. I hope you get your new car needs and wants can be mixed!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEC! I need to come visit you in SLC and go to Cafe Rio together. Do you remember when we were roommates and use to go the El Azteca weekly? You always ordered the Burrito Supreme [a massive burrito that would last you at least 3 meals]. I miss getting to lay on the floor chatting with you late into the night. Thanks for everything!

'Tis the eve of your birthday: I just got done singing "For Good" at the piano, I am sipping on a 7-eleven-esque slurpee, and I am about to watch Twilight!!! I swear that this all a coincidence...but maybe not. I think the universe must be getting ready to celebrate with you! I love you and will be thinking about you tomorrow!!!
