My (Birth) Day

Thank you all very much for the sweet notes, calls and texts that you sent yesterday. I had a wonderful birthday! I spent the day doing one of my favorite things, decorating for Christmas in my pajamas. About 11:00 am I got dressed and ran a few errands to grab things I realized I needed for decorating. The house is far from complete, but I did get a good amount accomplished. While running errands, I couldn't help but swing through Starbucks and purchase a birthday cake pop--of course it was pink!


My mom got stuck out of town due to weather, but we had celebrated with dinner last Wednesday, so I wasn't terribly bummed. Bryan left work a little early and surprised me with five kinds of chocolate and wine. He knows how to treat a birthday girl right! We also celebrated my birthday in Stuttgart with his family last Friday night. My gifts from him were a sewing machine and serger. I mentioned many months ago that I would really like to learn how to sew and own a sewing machine at some point. Little did I know that I would be teaching myself this winter! I know these might not be thrilling gifts to a lot of people, but I am extremely excited just thinking about all of the the creations I can produce!

Bryan and I went to IronWood Grill with a small group of friends, where I had a wedding cake martini and salmon with mango salsa. I asked the waitress for a fun drink and wondered if I could get a birthday martini instead of a wedding cake martini. Her blank stare and quick no would have been much better received had she just made up something and said yes. Can't a girl want to be festive?



I racked up on jewels, with my mom giving me a monogrammed West Avenue necklace from Max & Chloe and Dr. Ash giving me a sparkly rhinestone necklace. Love them both!


Bryan snapped this picture of me while I was getting out my lip gloss before we left for dinner. It is really the only good picture of the dress I purchased from Sosie.


That's all I've got for ya, so have a Happy Hump Day!

  1. So glad you had an awesome birthday! The necklaces are beautiful and that dress has been on my wishlist for months! I wanted it to wear to the Carolina / Clemson game but obviously it didn't happen. Maybe if I get some money for Christmas / my bday! :)
