My Life

It’s My Birthday! And I Come Bearing Gift!

Yes, gift. Just one.

So, today is my 27th birthday and I’m thankful for seeing this day and being able to celebrate it. Countless blessings around me and I can’t help but smile. I don’t have much planned, but I am tempted to do hoodrat things with my friends in the name of LUVVIE DAY.

But let me get to it. I wanted to give my blog readers a chance to win something on my birthday. Sorel Footwear, maker of awesome and cute winter boots sent me these Tofino boots that are everything I ever wanted! Warm, cute and red! One of the boots is for me, and the other is for one of you. But here’s the thing: they’re size 7.5.

Here’s me wearing mine last week:

Me in Sorels

You too can getchu a piece of these. To win, leave a comment about what you’re getting me for my birthday. The answer that makes me cackle the most will win these boots. Size 7.5.

But yeah. YAYYYYYY it’s my birthday! *does the cabbage patch*

P.S. Thanks to Sorel for the boots.

Update: Winner is ICEBTS!

    Happy Birthday Luvvie!!!! As your gift I’d make Red Velvet Cake Pops for you as they’re easy to carry around. But the kicker would be I’d make some Rice cake pops too…hahaha You could have a plain rice pop, Spanish rice pop, rice & peas pop, rice & gravy pop, jasmine rice pop… Ah I’ll even throw in a rice pudding cake pop!! All on a stick! No fork or plate needed! Have a blessed day & an awesome birthday!

    I will get Tyrese & Mike Epps to sing all of the tweeter post to you while you are served flaming minyon or flay ming young (your choice) & a seizure salad!

    Afterwards, Tyrese will take you in his miracle whip colored benz (mayonnaise is GAWDY) to the club where your crush velvet stalker is so later you can see what it’s like to live in luxury instead of the bush!

    GO LUVIE IT’s ya birthday!!!! HAPPY EARTHDAY!!!! In the spirit of ratchness I would get u a red shirt to go with ur red boots and some khaki pants so we could go to Target and change prices, play with the PA system and other hood rat things. Then I would treat u to red velvet fried chicken, red velvet cake and to top it off toast Luvie Day with a Red velvet- tini LOL all while paying Amish to ur blog by tweeting, roasting and slaying all that would be ratchet. Oh and I would buy u a red cape cause ur my Internet she- ro and I’d be ur sidekick in the pursuit of drop kicking, slave slapping and moonwalking all over that fool that posted ur blog on YouTube as his own. # Lettuceprayiwintheboots…… Have an AWESOME BIRTHDAY!

    Happy Birthday Luvvie! If u use ur imagination the object above looks like a gift, n yes its for u! Lol. U better not be judging me. This is an original design called a “Ratchet Box.” Aaalll the ratchetness you’ve encountered is to go n this box, n ur welcome 2 add as much to it as ur little heart desires. I’ve taken the liberty of getting u started, as I have placed Tyrese’s entire Twitter account, Kim K.’s ass AND her marriage certificate, Justin Beiber’s facial hair AND his paternity test inside…ENJOY!

    *I promise it looked like a box as I was typing. The correct spacing must’ve gotten lost n the interwebs somewhere.

    Happy Cake Day Luvvie!!!

    Since the Repubs will clearly stop at nothing to dethrone our Prez imma send you enough pee to pass three drug #tesses. We both know that if they get in office you gon have to “give up the golden” if you want to receive yo #benalphets (welfare, busfare, food stamps, child care, and #amish)

    You’ll be receiving a booty transplant from Serena. I already got her to sign the donor card.

    You’re welcome.

    BTW, it will be a live transplant. So the minute it’s on, you’ll already be halfway through a twerk.

  24. January 5, 2012 at 10:55 am

    Happy birthday, Luvvie! I have a plus-size foot, so a 7.5 can only dangle from my rear-view mirror. I hope you have a great day full of blessings & ratchetness!

  25. January 5, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Hmmm, my feet are too big at 8.5 (#CinderellaWorldProblems) but I can certainly try for these for Mama Cheeks. That’s her (lilliputian) size!

    For your birthday, I shall formerly punish ol’ dude that stole your Intellectual Property by sending him a Tyrese Wisdom-o-gram every single day for the rest of his apology sweater life.

  32. January 5, 2012 at 12:51 pm

  37. January 5, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    Luvvie Dove, these bamas are up in here trippin, talmbout they feets is too big. WHATEVA!! I wears a 12.5, and I’d rock the mess outta those 7.5s. See, the key is ball your feets up JUST right, so you can get all of yo toeses in there. My secret is to tuck the pinkie toe up under the other toes, which clears about 3 inches by isself. ORRRRRRRRRRRRR, I could holla at that chick that made the Fauxboutins to see iffn she can make them into peep toe boots. Then I can get those gel tips on my toeses with the lime green and orange crackle polish French’s manicure. I seent this girl on the train wif the eagle claw curve tips, talmbout “Now I can REALLY drop down and get my eagle on!!!” I think I’ma ask for those. You’ont think it’ll be too cold for that do you????? I’m jus sayin, I can make it work. Or just have my daughter wear them 😀

    Now, for you, I’d treat you to a new ‘do. I think this would be BIZANGIN!!! AND it’d go with your charity work!!!!

    Then have Fee Lai Ming-Yong hook these up ova at tha spot!!

    I’m going to get you a red corset, so you can bosomtastic like the a certain young lady that walked into a lounge that I was in last week Friday. Apparently boobs up to your neck is the way to go, in Chicago, in freezing cold.

    Happy Belated birthday lady!

  46. January 14, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    I think I may have missed the giveaway (as I clearly missed your birthday). Happy Belated Birthday!!! I hope you have a fabulous year.

    Now for your gift, it’s simple. I’d give you two damns. One to keep and one to give.
