The deets...

My B-day recap:

 Mamasita, 3 sisters, & birthday girl...
Pretty dessert, the prettiest present *ever* from my lovely sisters and mama (Does Kate know how to dress a present or what???), pretty shopping, pretty girls
The birthday outfit, complete with my pleated skirt (yes, I found one!) and my son, of course he is in the picture...(c:
(Ignore my hair, our a/c went out that day and it was HUMID...yuck)

We ate, we laughed, we ate, we shopped, we had a ton of fun and it couldn't have been more perfect!

And I'm pretty sure that I will have reading material for the rest of the summer because I got this book from the hubby and three of my Coralie Bickford-Smith books....THRILLED, I say!!!



Speaking of thrilled...




Congrats to Alicia from Shaken, Not Blurred! for being the birthday giveaway winner!

 She is just the sweetest gal and she is on the tail end of her pregnancy, this girl definitely deserves presents!!! (c:

I've been feeling like the luckiest 30 year-old on the planet...how about you, how was Memorial Day???

I've been having troubles with blogger for the past week or two commenting on blogs...so I'm going to try and comment as anonymous and see if that works. So frustrating! I have been trying to comment on your blog forever now. :)
