Happy Birthday-Blogiversary To Me!


Let me hear some noise! Blow the horns, shout out loud, let’s get ready to PAARRRTTTYYYY!

Could there be a more exciting week? I think not! On this date one year ago, Pretty Handy Girl was born. I wrote my first blog post and since then y’all have followed me through the beautiful and the ugly.

But, wait, there’s more! On Thursday, 40 years ago, I was born!

I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate my 40th birthday with you and you and you – all 3,350 of you (and counting!)

In honor of this memorable week, I will have a different giveaway for each day. In no particular order, here are some of the gifts I have for you (thanks to some wonderful companies who donated them.)

Janimie Necklace of Your Choice

Dremel Trio

A Selection of All Things Pretty Handy Girl (Sorry, I will not be included in the box.)

KILZ Primer

Gift Certificate to spend at Leen the Graphics Queen

A Selection of Irwin Tools

AND MORE!!!

So, be sure to stop by EVERY day this week to see what you could win! Who’s with me now? Can I get a woot woot!

I leave you with a photo compilation of me over the past 40 years. Enjoy!

P.s. Get a load of my wings and my hot prom date! No funny comments, that was me and Pretty Handsome Guy in the 80′s. {Baahahaha. LOL}

    BIG SHOUT OUT TO YOU! Happy Birthday & Happy Blogiversary! Thank you for sharing so much with us all. I really enjoy your blog. The hair styles may have changed (80′s = big hair ha ha), but you haven’t aged. Looking good!

  22. Congratulations! Enjoyed the photos, they made me smile (well, and laugh a little, too), because I have a daughter who turned the Big 40 in May. We have some similar pics of her prom “do,” attire & date!

  23. Just checked out your page for the first time. Liked what I saw.

  24. Bonnie P says:

    Happy blog and natural birthday.40 is good!

  25. Happy Birthday and Happy Blogiversary Brittany!!! Love the photos – so fun!

  26. Shell W. says:

    Happy Birthday & a successful year of blogging here’s to wishing you many more!

  27. Congrats on both counts! You’ve created quite an impressive blog in a year’s time.

  28. Congratulations! One year of insanity!(jk!) That’s a huge accomplisment. So glad you decided to blog for the world:)

  29. Congratulations, Brittany! You’ve accomplished so much with your blog in just one short year! And that’s no surprise, really–you’re so smart, so talented AND so kind! I am really happy for you.

    And happy birthday, too! I AM surprised that you’ll be 40–you look so young! Of course, 40 is very young–VERY young!!–but I would have guessed you were even younger. So whatever you’re doing to take care of yourself, I’d say you’re doing a great job. Many happy returns! :)

  30. Melinda KE says:

    Congrats, one year down and many more to come…I hope! Happy Birthday, and what a cool baby photo that is! I love the prom photo too, the hair cracks me up. :)

  31. Happy birthday / blogiversary! You sure have accomplished a lot in just one year of blogging!

    Those prizes look like some great ones… although I must say that photo of the couple taking “you” out of the box is a wee bit creepy. :)

    Congrats again on the milestones!

    P.S. I think that photo of you and your hubby is so cute! Hey that was stylish back then! And the fact that you married your high school sweetheart.. so romantic! :)

  32. happy birthday.

  33. Can’t wait! Happy Birthday, Brittany & Happy Blogiversary!
