Birthday Candy

***CANDY IS NOW CLOSED***

To celebrate my upcoming birthday I'm doing a surprise Candy.  It wasn't going to be a surprise, but as I'm awaiting a few items and because I'm going to the Harrogate Show on Sunday, where I'll probably pick up a few more goodies I thought it would be fun to do a surprise candy, so you wont know what the candy is until the candy closes. 
All you need to do to enter is leave a comment here, but there's a catch I want you to tell me what was one of your best ever birthday surprises be it a present, treat or whatever, and of course it would be fab if you want to spread the word about my surprise candy.
And if anyone happens to share the same birthday as me 17th September then please say so and you will get a second entry into the candy, please I'm trusting you all to be honest.
The candy closes on the 20th September at 11:00 p.m. (GMT), I will then reveal the candy and the winner on the 21st September.
Please only one entry, all duplicates will be deleted.  I will post worldwide and don't worry if you don't have a blog just make sure you leave an email so I can contact you.
Good Luck Everyone!!!

Oh!!! Happy happy birthday!!!!

My grandfather's birthday is also the 17th of September, not mine though, I'm unlucky enough that it's in November which means it falls on Thanksgiving every seven years. Turkey instead of cake those years... lol

My best birthday surprise was when my husband asked me to marry him. I had no idea he was even buying a ring or anything, he just came home from work that night (on my birthday) and asked me to marry him!

I'm already your follower and I've posted this on my sidebar!!!

Happy birthday Joanne and thanks for offering a surprise candy - how exciting!

My best birthday pressie was when my hubby arranged to take me to my favourite place to stay in Edinburgh, arranged it all, the time off with work, flights, my parents to come up & look after our daughter, it was such a surprise trip and a wonderful birthday weekend away. But that's in Feb, so no I don't share your birthday!

All the best

I am a follower and I will post a note about your candy tomorrow.

My best birthday is the one I just had. I had been telling my hubby that I wanted him to do something special for my 30th on the 30th birthday. My mom asked me to come to her house for a weekend visit about a week and a half before my birthday -- and had surprised me by flying in my sister and her family and throwing me a giant surprise pary (with close to 50 family and friends showing up) and got me a massage and a wii and it was simply WONDERFUL.

I hope everyone can get such a great birthday at some point in their life.

YAY candy!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!! Hope you have a fantastic day. I'd love to win the "surprise" candy and I don't believe I've ever had a "surprise" on my birthday. I've had wonderful gifts, great cakes, etc, but no surprises. I'll list your candy on my sidebar Here .

Kary Sol said...

Happy Birthday to you!!!
Thank you for the chance to win your surprise!!!
I never received a surprise in birthday.I very much love surprises, but (unfortunately) they do not love me. In October to me 30 and I am lonely. Has ceased to trust on a holiday. Birthday for me it is sad - I mature, I grow old...

What a great idea and Happy Early Birthday!!! The best birthday surprise present that I got was this last birthday I had, my boyfriend bought me a quad and a super cute helmet, I was totally blown away, definitely not something that I expected but I was definitely excited!!! Enjoy your birthday and I hope you have a wonderful day. Thanks for the chance to win.

Nunt said...

Happy upcoming birthday Joanne :) My best birthday was 3 years back, when my then new boyfriend got me a day at the spa (facial treatments and massage) and then took me to a fancy restaurant for dinner <3 Now we are living together and safe to say, no matter how many hints and straightforward requests I've thrown, I have not gotten such treatments again :D He's caught me now, he doesn't need to try anymore I guess ;P

Hi Ya Joanne, Happy Birthday!
My fav. present, and it was a surprise, was a gold tone antique style locket and matching earing set that my hubby got me ( I was working in a jewellery shop and had been eyeing it of for weeks and was very angry when it sold, little did I know my hubby brought it) It has a gorgeous pink china rose in the centre.
Our birthdays miss by a few days mine is on the 25th :(.
Enjoy your weekend.

Max said...

Yummy candy Joanne. Add my name to the list please.

My biggest birthday surprise was a few years ago when hubby secretly arranged a luxury weekend away as a special treat after I'd been recovering from a particularly complicated surgery. Had a fantastic room with all the things a girl could possibly want.
Only thing was I missed my kiddlings too much after being in hospital for so long, I came home a day early.

Luv'n'Stuff

I don't think it was a surprise but my best biirthday thing ever was on my 17th, I got my very first driving lesson at 6pm. WOW I still remember the time. All I ever wanted to do was drive so that was the best pressie I ever got!!!
Love and Huggys Hazelxoxox

Superjaxster said...

My husband shares the same birthday as you, but he would not be as excited as I would to win your candy, I'm sure lol! The best birthday present I ever got was my digital camera. My parents knew that I was really wanting one 2 years ago since I am the family "photographer". My dad used to make fun of people who took pictures of birds and flowers, til I started doing it! (well, maybe he still does, but not in front of me! LOL)

Marsha said...

My birthday falls in the same week as our county fair and for some reason we often took the kids to the fair that day. One year my kids (then in their teens and early 20's) planned a surprise for me so that when we left the fair grounds to go to the motorhome for lunch, there was a cake and presents and my parents.

Emma said...

Woo hoo you lucky thing going away for a birthday treat!! Happy Birthday for Thursday but guna see ya before then away.
My best birthday suprise was Steve taking me to Gran Canaria when I was 30...knew we were going away but didn't know where until a few days before...loved it!!

Hi Joanne, sorry I missed your Birthday so a belated Happy Birthday, hope you had a great day. Thanks for the chance of getting your surprise Candy, will pop a link in my sidebar to it.
My best birthday surprise was when my husband phoned me at work about 2 weeks before my birthday and said tell them your leaving(I was doing temp work at the time)we are going to New Zealand next week. Gob smacked to say the least. So I spent my birthday in New Zealand with my cousin who I hadn't seen in 6 years.

Tertia said...

Hope I am not too late! It is still the 20th in South Africa. Happy birthday, hope you had a wonderful time. my best birthday surprise was when my children (all younger than 12) made me a quilt from all the leftover pieces of material I had ever used to make them clothes. I call it my Story quilt and won't let anybody else, not even my grandchildren use it. After 20 years it is still my most prized posession.
