SIGH! Another Birthday weekend has come and gone!
BUT WHAT A WEEKEND IT WAS!
*FIRST* let me just say thank you thank you a million times THANK YOU for all of your wonderful and sweet birthday wishes. Y'all truly are the bestest estest and KNOW how to make a girl feel loved!
Ok, let's get down to BIZZYNESS! Saturday day was spent going to the farmer's market, making an amazeballs breakfast, going to a baby shower (YAY) getting ready for my party and then it was time to PARTY!!!
(What comes before Part B?
Hills reference anyone!?!?)
Both of the sissys were able to come to my party this year and I was OVER THE MOON ABOUT IT! Super duper excited! They and another good friend came to my apartment before we headed out into DC for the real pre party!

|Me and my man! He helped pick out my birthday shirt!|
Shirt: Rampage at Macy's
Before we get to the party pictures, can I just say HOW MUCH I loved my birthday outfit and hair? Because I L-U-R-V-E LURVED it!
Back story shirt: Thursday night C and I ventured out to procure him some new suits and to find me a birthday outfit. Macy's = NO SUIT for C (sadface) but Macy's = SUPER CUTE pink birthday shirt (happyfacewithsparkles). I randomly saw the shirt on a rack and almost walked right by it, but THANKFULLY decided to grab it. I was worried it would be one of those awesome on the rack not on the body shirts, but luckily it was not. After receiving the boyfriend seal of approval, "that shirt is 100% YOU!" it was mine. Despite the no suits at Macy's I am happy to report C found some elsewhere and man are they fly. And he looks oh so dashing in them too, le swoon!
Back story hair: My hair was a crazy concoction I saw online somewhere and wanted recreate. I WISH I had taken a close up because y'all it came out so perfect. Basically I curled my hair earlier in the day with a curling iron for a baby shower I attended. I KNEW my hair would not keep all night so I figured I'd have to do some sort of up do. All I did was gently twist my hair, starting from the crown on each side to the back of my head. Then I just sort of pinned it up while still twisting (think Heidi braids but with a twist). Once everything was loosely secured (KEY) I gently pulled out different sections and re-curled, then brushed the curls out to create a messymissmash! I WISH WISH WISH I had done a vlog about it, to show you and I thought about doing one while doing my hair, but I was worried it would be a waste if the style didn't turn out. I'm no Pink Lou Lou, but I am darn proud of myself. Too bad I'll never be able to recreate it again, darn! Maybe I'll try and make a vlog just for the fun of it.....would that interest anyone?
Now back to the party. Saturday night was a combined birthday party, since one of my good friends and kickerball teammate's bday is 2 days after mine we decided to have a party together. The preparty was at her bf's place in DC and all of our fabulous friends were in attendance.

One of the highlights of my night was being surprised by two high school friends. The three of us were the 3 Musketeers my senior (their junior) year of high school. We literally were together every day after school and on the weekends. H and I still keep in touch now, getting together for lunch from time to time but R moved out of state and we lost touch during college. This was all prefacebook, so keeping in touch was a little harder...hahaha!
Anyway, H called to let me know she was coming and that she had a surprise. Well I thought of the randomest surprise ever and guessed R and I WAS CORRECT! It was so nice catching up with her and being together again. Some of my favorite HS memories were with these two ladies.

Sunday was my actual birthday and it was AMAZEBALLS! C made me french toast for breakfast, I hung out with the family at home, played tennis and then went out to dinner with Daddy, Sportyspice and C. We went to a Japanese steak house aka CHOP EM UP restaurant and the food was faboo! Then it was off to a soccer game and then bed cause this girl was exhausted. I am SOOOO glad I decided to skip a soccer reunion and just chill and enjoy my birthday. The weather was gorgeous and I was so happy to be able to relax with those I love.
|The birthday FAIRY aka Daddy came to visit my apartment!|
Is he NOT the cutest thing in the WHOLE WORLD!!!!???!!!
|Perfect end to a perfect day|
My honey is amazing, I am so lucky!
I know I say this EVERY YEAR, but I am such a blessed girl to have such amazing people in my life. Every birthday gets better and I am truly amazed by the LOVE and KINDNESS everyone shows me on my special day.
I could not ask for a better life, 100% true statement!
