I'm thinking 27 is my favorite age so far

My birthday was a week ago, but I wanted to share what a fun celebration I had. I am spoiled... that's all there is to it. My husband gave me a shopping spree (guilt free spending money, a.k.a. cash in an envelope), flowers and a fancy dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. The steak was hands down-- the best steak I've ever had in my life. Melted in your mouth like butta'! My in-laws threw me a joint party with Meredith and my mother-in-law. I got spoiled with an Anthropologie gift card, Anthro bowls and a cute flower pin, a scarf from Paris (Lori brought it back from her European vacation), a book that I've been wanting called Edenbrook, and more money from my in-laws. My friend, Kim, took me to lunch for my birthday too which was great! And, I got heart attacked (I still don't know who did it!) It was a fun week to say the least! I feel so special. :)
Every year just gets better. I really like being 27. This is a good age, just might be my favorite so far. I can tell it's going to be a great year!
It was fun to get all dressed up to go out to dinner on my birthday! It doesn't happen very often as a mom (to get dressed up and wear heels on a date!) :)
Our iPhoto crashed about a week ago so I lost all of my pictures from my birthday party. Luckily, our iPhoto was saved on our backup drive, but all of my pictures are unorganized and unedited-- I cried over this. It could be worse I guess. But it kind of sucked, not gonna lie. :)
I like my purple, glowing halo in the picture above. 
Anyway, thanks for all the birthday wishes everybody! It was a great one!


  1. It was me! I heart attacked your lawn. I felt bad that some of the hearts flew away and you were stuck with sticks in your yard. I just wanted you to feel super special on your birthday!
