The Birthday of Me


My birthday was December 27th and it was amazing. I went to lunch with some friends and when I got home this gorgeous bouquet of flowers was waiting for me. They're from Ally of Shybiker! Such a sweetheart. It totally made me squeal with pleasure. I LOVE getting flowers. I love it way more than presents. It's just so sweet and thoughtful. Anyway, THANKS, ALLY!! You're the best.

I'm wearing a casual outfit for my lunch with friends. But I'm also including the evening outfit. My husband and his parents took me to a fancy dinner. It was incredible. I really have to only eat lettuce for the next two weeks to get back to my happy weight. I've been out of control with all the holiday sweets and general yumminess.

Sorry about all the photos, but it's a two in one kind of post.

And even though a woman never tells, I'm proud to say that I'm now 48 years old.














First outfit: Tee: Vince, Cargo pants: J Brand, Jacket: June, Boots: BCBG

Second outfit: Dress: Loft, Sweater: BCBG MaxAzria, Shoes: Jessica Simpson

If I look half as good as you at 48 I will be taking out BILLBOARDS to announce my age. Or maybe have some t-shirts made. I am not kidding. I thought you were close to my age (33). :)

I'm glad you had a good day - Happy (belated) Birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday! Girl, you look great at 48! We hope we look as good as you when we are 48 :) That was so sweet of Ally to send flowers too. It's little things like that, that make you feel special on your special day.

You are NOT 48. I swear I'm not saying this to flatter you, but there is no way I would have guessed anywhere close to that. More like that minus 10 years. Holy cow girl!

My grandpa used to tell people hew as 10-15 years older than he was so people would tell him he looked really good for his age.

I bet that's what you're doing, too! ;) Haha.
