I'm 20 today!

That's right, today's my birthday! And I'm no longer a teenager. It's not like I really felt like a teenager before, but it's still a little odd to be officially out of that stage of my life. Sure, I've been married and living on my own for the past (almost) year, but now I'm actually the big Two-Oh.

I'd love to do a super cool post where I list 20 awesome and notable things in my life, but since my only access to a computer these days happens to be at the library, that simply won't be happening. BUT, I do still have a giveaway for you guys. I compiled a list of 20 (see what I did there) of my favorite books. It's not really in any particular order and is, in fact, pretty darn random.
1 winner will get to choose a book from the list and if it's part of a series, then they can pick any book in the series.
Open internationally.
The list is as follows, but there's some handy-dandy pictures at the bottom too.

    My favourite birthday memory is from when I was a child. My family went all out: clown, magician, mascots, popcorn machine, cotton candy machine, an "open bar" for ice cream (I'm not sure how else to describe it. Sorry! LOL!), balloons, and you name it. =D I was the eldest, and at that time, still an only child. My younger sister and brothers can't believe how good I had it before they came along to split the resources. ;-)

    Thanks for the giveaway! I hope this turns out to be your best birthday yet!

  2. Happy Birthday!!!! Mine was just this year, but my hubby took me to see Singin in the Rain in the theater!! It was so awesome! I hope you get to do something as equally awesome!

  3. Happy birthday!! My birthday's always kind of a quiet one. It's always around or on Thanksgiving (last year). Everyone's always busy and it's tough to round up my friends so I'm usually just at home with my family, which is nice.

  4. One year not too long ago my husband bought me both a kindle AND an ipad. I was so happy (and so spoiled) all at the same time.

  5. Happy 20th birthday, Jasmine! I never realized you got married young (me too!). I hope you have the very best birthday. I was super excited about this birthday, too, because it felt so weird saying I was still a teenager and married. Ha! Enjoy your day!

  6. Happy birthday Jasmine, thanks for the great giveaway !!!

  7. Happy Birthday, Jasmine! I actually had no idea you were so young, I never would have guessed you were still a teenager. I'm actually not a big fan of my birthday, I don't like being the center of attention so it always seems odd. I just had mine in August, and it was lovely as my boyfriend got some of my favorite authors to wish me happy birthday.

  8. At one, I stuck cake in my ear. :D

  9. Happy Birthday!! :D

    My favorite birthday memories are just dancing around and being stupid with my friends. I always have this sleep over party at my house for my birthday with my closest friends and they're just so much fun!

    Hope your day is great!!


  10. Happy birthday!!

    My favorite memory is my 21st birthday. My friends decided it would be a week long celebration. On the actual day, they took me to IHOP for birthday waffles. Then two nights we went downtown to party and they paid for my drinks. Then another two nights they made me dinner. It was really sweet.

  11. During my younger years my mom and I had a tradition of going to a baseball game for my birthday. :)

    Happy b-day!

  12. This year my friends gave me a surprise party! Happy Birthday!

  13. My favorite birthday memory is when my friends gave me a surprise birthday party! I remember being all lonely because all of my friends went home early, for some reason or another. But when I came home, everyone was there, and they sprayed me with silly string (keep in mind, that's like 7 cans of silly string!). We then went to the bowling alley, where they also have go-karting. So we went go-karting and bowling for 2 hours. Best party EVER! I loved that birthday. =)

    Happy birthday! <3

  14. When I was young we went to the zoo for the entire day and ate zoo food for every meal...not the animal food of course.


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
