Haiku Birthday, Trip & Contest!

Birthday twenty-eight
Another year has gone by
This time, as a mom

I received a Flip
Two copies, Haiku Mama
Contest to win one!

New slippers, photos
Framed and placed in an album
Little Man and me

A birth stone necklace
Showing off my baby's month
Wine glasses -- oh yeah!

Ear muffs for East Coast
I hope I won't need them much!
We leave tomorrow

What a joy 't'will be
Airports, waiting, long car rides
With my squirmy boy

-----

Once again, it's Haiku Friday.

I had a lovely Birthday, complete with four, count 'em, FOUR! celebrations. Yippee for me! Both #4 and #7 got me a copy of Haiku Mama, because they love me and know me so well. ;)

Since I really only need one copy of Haiku Mama, I've decided to throw a little contest here -- so if you really want a free copy, here's what you have to do: find as many of my posts that are titled with song lyrics or song titles (I don't know if you've noticed, but it's been a bit of a theme here). The person who can find the most will win their very own copy of Haiku Mama, autographed by VDog if ya like! Email your entries to VDogBlog (at) gmail (dot) com.

This contest will run from today, Friday, December 21st through Thursday, January 3rd (at midnight, PST), to give you plenty of time to search the archives. I will announce the winner on Friday, January 4th, in my usual Haiku Friday post. Two runners-up will receive lovely consolation prizes. So get searching!

*****

So as you can tell, I'm SUPER excited about traveling with the Little Man. His first plane trip -- woohoo!! NOT. We'll be off for the week, so I don't know if I'll be posting -- you know I pretty much never miss Haiku Friday, so I'll try to post next Friday.

I'll let you know if we survive the trip. Haha.

great Haiku! hope your plane trip goes well...i went on my first plane trip when i was 6 months old, and i have to say i was a model passenger! :)

as for the contest, i needs me that book, so i'm gonna have to go through your posts and see what i can find! :)

btw...Happy belated Birthday! i'm sorry i didn't see your post on the day...if I could just get myself to hit that damn "mark all as read" button, it would be a lot easier to keep up with all my blogs!!!

okay...NOW i'm going to bed! :)

Hmmm...I'll try this contest thing, but I am so bad at songs title, lyrics, anything. But I will try.

Sounds like you had a great birthday!

Toni said...

Happy Belated, VDog!

Great contest; if my hustling and bustling slows, I will have to give it a whirl.

Safe travels!

Christina said...

Happy (belated) birthday! You got a great bunch of gifts! Let me know how that Flip camcorder works out - I've been looking at those.

Have a safe trip, and an uneventful plane ride.

Oh, Dawg! I don't envy you a cross country trip. I'm so glad your birthday went so swimmingly. Sounds like you raked in the stuffs. I so want that book!! I'm searching! Happy Christmas.

Just don't forget when your through expelling watermelons, you get a RING with the birthstones. Aim for April...it's diamond. I did. HEE HEE

happy belated bday (from a fellow sagitarian) ... and have a great trip!

VDog said...

Holy mackeral, everyone! Mishi has gone and found entries with song titles that I did even realize myself were song titles!! Ay caramba!
She may very well have this thing locked up already! I DO feel like she may have missed a couple, tho....hmmm....

And don't forget, there's the two runner up prizes, which are fabulous as well (girly stuff that smells good, to give you a hint).

Good luck everybody, and thanks for all of your well wishes!

Trips with little ones
Can be a challenge sometimes.
But yours will be great!
