So I have been playing catch up for the past few weeks and I am almost caught up! I had a super big birthday in between all the fun vacation time and Dan changing jobs.
Birthdays when you are a mom sort of suck sometimes. You are just there at home, getting kids ready for school and then left wondering what bathroom to clean first. I decided to forget the messy house and spend money instead. My mom and I went to do a little birthday/shoe therapy.
I picked out these super cute Sperry pink plaid flip flops
And these SUPER comfy Merrell Barefoot sandals.
I also bought some new make up
I swear by Lancome and I love playing at the make up counters! So much fun!
I was seriously in love with this Dooney bag but decided to hold off..
What made my shopping trip even better? I have NEVER EVER met a blogger in real life. I've wanted to go to a conference or two but it always seems like something else pops up (or pops, like my tire earlier this week)
On my way out I see a familiar face at the Chanel counter with three darling blondies with her...
It was fun finally meeting her since I've been a reader of hers since the day she started her blog. I felt like a nerdy groupie when someone ELSE came up and spotted her and started gushing over her - Shelley is pretty much celebrity around here!
I have to say she is just a sweet in person as she comes across on her blog. She is just SO nice.
The rest of the day was pretty mellow since my kids weren't feeling that well. I was spoiled all day long by cute friends bringing thoughtful little gifts by! Dinner out ended up being Chili's take out.
Dan and my parents did throw me a really nice party that weekend to celebrate my "40-ness."' I loved having so many great friends and family drop by to say happy birthday. I had a few friends take me out to lunch and two of my really good friends from church took me out to dinner as well.
My 30's were great - I have had 10 amazing years of marriage to my best friend, we've moved 3 times, have had 3 beautiful babies and life is good!
Let's just hope this year goes by a little slower than the last!
