So, in case you missed it, it was my birthday on Monday! It was a great day! It was freezing and gloomy outside. That created an opportunity for my husband and I to just chill and binge watch House of Cards while the kids were at school! I felt like we were playing hooky. We got to go out to lunch, grab a coffee and come back home to chill some more. My family showered me with the sweetest of words and gifts along with beautiful memories. It could not have been a more perfect day!
I love the way my family thinks about what I would really love on Christmas and for my birthdays. They are always thoughtful when it comes to each other and with me. It wouldn’t matter to me if I didn’t get anything, but it sure is sweet that they think enough of me to shower me with love on my special day.
Want to see what I got for my birthday? I would love to share it all with you.
one Most of my t-shirts are from church. I have a few basic tees. I usually can’t find a great t-shirt that is ultra comfy that isn’t see-through and that I would want to wear unless I am cleaning the house….until now. The kids gave me this one. It is soft and fits well. It’s sporty and I can wear it with a cap and leggings. And did I mention it matches my shoes??
two OMG! My favorite new color. The hottest thing this season and these are so cute on! I needed a new pair and the kids know me so well! I love getting a new pair of kicks. Do you see the lace detail within the mesh? So cute!!
three I guess by now you know that I love fun earrings. They just make an outfit. You could have the most basic t-shirt and skinny jeans and earrings just make it pop! My bestie sent me these and I love them so much!! I love a cute, full tassel earring.
four This is SO cute!! The kids are always telling me that I need to drink more water. What a fun and whimsical water bottle. I love the color! It’s so cheery!! And the giraffes….precious. And everyone at work will know it is mine.
five I am a sucker for a little turquoise detail! The kids were sent out by their dad to get me a couple of cute things I would love. These were one of the things they chose. They know that I really love the Sugarfix line from Baublebar at Target.
six I love the little chain detail on these earrings. A soft pink, pale blue and a little gold. Perfect! They fall at just the right place!
seven I love a good, lightweight zip-up to get me through a breezy Spring day and this is just the fit!! My kids picked this out for me and they couldn’t have done a better job! It matches my shoes, too! And it is REALLY cute on!
My mom gave a me a gift certificate for Ann Taylor. I will wait to spend it until she comes out to visit in a few weeks for Mother’s Day and my son’s 18th birthday. I only see her twice a year (you can read about her last visit here.) so I like to do special things when she is here. Although, her love for organizing usually takes over and we usually find ourselves knee-deep in projects! There seems to always be something that needs attention in my house. As hard as I try….there is always something! And she can’t help herself!
Have a great weekend, friends!!!
