KIMMIE'S FAVORITES HOLIDAY BLOG BASH WITH BIRTHDAY GIRL ~ CYNTHIA D'ALBA



HI ALL AND TGIF.. TODAY IS A VERY SPECIAL LADY'S BIRTHDAY! I WANT TO WISH CYNTHIA D'ALBA A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM ALL OF MY BOOK OBSESSED CHICKS AND FROM CYNTHIA'S AMAZING STREET TEAM, D'ALBA'S DIAMONDS. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING CYNTHIA AT MY VERY FIRST RT CONFERENCE IN MAY IN KANSAS CITY AT THE SIGNING. SO MUCH WAS GOING ON AT RT THAT I WASN'T ABLE TO CHAT WITH CYNTHIA AS MUCH AS I WOULD HAVE LIKED. HOPING TO SEE HER AT THE NEXT RT

SINCE IT'S HER BIRTHDAY TODAY I PRETTY MUCH LET CYNTHIA DO WHATEVER SHE WANTED BECAUSE WHO AM I TO DENY A BIRTHDAY GIRL?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYNTHIA!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                               


Yep! Today is my birthday! And I’m so thrilled to be sharing it with y’all. We won’t be discussing which birthday this is. We’ll just say I’m old enough to drink booze legally and I’m young enough to not have pre-planned funeral arrangements! J

Most of the time my favorite present is the one I give myself. This year, I gave me a Babylock Ellegante 3. Isn’t she beautiful?


Mostly I do embroidery on it but it does sew. The problem is…I don’t sew! Ha ha. But everybody in the family got embroidered shirts this year. I’m working on surprises for my street team but shhh. Don’t tell.

I started to post a couple of pictures of sexy guys that should take me out to a birthday dinner but WOW. There were just too many choices. Do I go with the standards, like George Clooney or Tim McGraw? Or do I stretch my imagination and find that new guy that makes the other women swoon? Then I thought…shoot! It’s MY birthday. I’ll let y’all find me the perfect sexy date.

So who is he? Who do you think is sexy enough to take me to dinner?
And, given though it’s my birthday, I’m giving presents to you! J

Every person who leaves a comment with a sexy man suggestion will be entered in a drawing for a $10.00 gift card to the online store of the winner’s choice! Amazon? No problem. Barnes and Nobles? No problem. Bed, Bath and Beyond? No problem. Kim’s Store of Whips and Chains? Problem. No account there!

But that’s not all! If you send me a message to cynthia@cynthiadalba.com and tell me you read this post, I’ll send you a digital short story, Texas Two Step: The Prequel . If you request a short story, be sure to tell me which digital format you need. Kindle. Nook. Epub. Etc.

Remember, to be entered in the drawing for the $10, you must leave me a sexy man!

Now, pass me my birthday cake so I can blow out the candles and we can get this party started.

  5. The Blake Shelton suggestion reminds me...I have a short story coming out next summer in Cowboy Heat. It's the heroine's birthday and her best friend sends (as a BD gift) a gigolo who looks exactly like the heroine's favorite county singer, except sometimes things aren't as they seem.

    Such a fun story! but VERY HAWT!!!

  13. I'm a dark brown-eyed brunette from Panama and have ALWAYS had a thing for blue or green-eyed blonde boys. So, if Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Chris Pine and Alexander Skarsgård had a baby, he would be my ultimate, alpha sweetie pie.

    Happy holidays,
    Michelle
