My birthday

Today I turn 29 for the very first time. It is strange to be turning 29 because in my head I am still 22. It seems like every birthday until 21 came so slowly and every one after flew by. It has been a pretty great birthday so far.

I celebrated last weekend with my my mom and then this weekend we had friends over for brisket with all the fixings and cake. Next weekend I will celebrate with my dad so it is really more of a birthday month than birthday day.

I got to start the day off right with birthday cake for breakfast with my coffee. Yum! And later today my order from Old Navy should arrive with this sweater and these jeans,

which I will tuck into these boots that my husband bought me.

I also picked myself up these 2 shirts and this sweater from Express last week and I love them.

Yay for birthday money and giftcards. My best friend got me a $30 gift card for Ulta this weekend that I am itching to spend. Any suggestions on what to get there?

Ooh Ulta! Fun! If I were you I'd get some kind of body indulgence thing - like a body scrub or yummy smelling cream or mint foot scrub. Although finding the time to indulge on yourself at home could be tricky! ;)

Happy Belated Birthday.

I live in TX and I'm thinking, maybe you can layer these because it is cool in the morning and then 80 degrees by noon. LOL.
