Happy Birthday to me and Guest Blogger Giveaway!

Today is my birthday! I am one of those people that get very excited about birthdays. Excited about my own birthday and everyone else’s. I feel like I get to be a celebrity for a day. And you too can feel like a celebrity by winning a guest blogging spot here on Under the Sheets-Shhh. Go on and enter. You know you want to. Plus it's so easy and can also check out these other contests.

As I’ve mentioned to you before I’ve moved around a lot in life. So on my birthday my cell phone rings a lot from calls from my family and friends from around the world. (I am so lucky!) So today is my birthday and I am very excited to be turning ‘26’ again.

I also think that since I had a very difficult childhood, birthdays have become a day for me to reflect, think of my loved ones and reflect on the past year. So I wanted to do a guest blogger giveaway to my blogger friends to say thank you for all of your support and care to me over this last year.

So here’s how you can win a guest post on Under the Sheets:

1) I would love for you to write a post about the below pictures. All I ask is that it’s creative and fun as it’s a birthday present to me ☺
2) Comment on this post what your title would be (just the title) and then I will choose two lucky winners to guest post.
3) If you are the winner then on your blog you will link back here to Under the Sheets-Shhh and tell your followers that your guest blogging and then I will link back to you on post day.
4) Doesn’t this sound like fun?

OK so here are the random photos that I would love to hear your ideas about a title. Email me if you interested in knowing what the pictures are of at 

And thank you for my blogging present. 

How did you know it's exactly what I wanted?!

* I think that this is the best laundry mats name. There are actual socks glued to the floor. Look closely and you can see me taking the picture in the window. And yes I do believe in sock heaven. Don't you?
* "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie"... This couple at my local coffee shop was so into each other that I am pretty sure they didn't even notice me take the picture of them.

* Yes, this is a woman, dressed in a banana suit at a wonderful juice bar that I love. Should I drink the wheatgrass? No way it almost killed me :)

Now it's your turn. Turn on those creative juices and wow me. Haven't you been waiting for an opportunity like to this to fall into your lap? Guest blogging for everyone. Sorry birthday's get me very excited....

Happy Birthday Laura!
Here are my guesses
1) The Golden Gate..its just a hop, skip, and even a jump away for some
2)The missing sock..where all those extra coat hangers are actually born!
3)Church of the WTF
4)Sleepless in San Francisco
5) The S@*t is bananas ..b-a-n-a-n-a-s( you know from the song Holla back girl) :-)

Ok there are my goofy titles.,,have a great day!

Have a super Fab birthday!! Ok I have only had a 1/2 a cup of coffee but I will give this a try.
1. There is nothing clearer than a clear day in San Francisco.

2. The Missing Sock is in the same place as your Tupperware lids.

3. Actually K wins this one, Church of the WTF is perfect.

4. You left the lid off the jar of mayonnaise again!!!

5. I guess this is better than being a stripper.
