*Lots* to talk about!

I'm having a pretty hard time getting back into the swing of things this morning...

Long weekend + Birthday + LOTS going on = One tired mama!!!

But just in case you were wondering, it was FAN-freakin'-TASTIC (c:

Friday I had my very first bloggy friend meet up with the adorable and oh-so-sweet Patience of White Laquer!

We just met up at a park to chill with kiddos and chat, so perfect! 

And being the absolute sweetheart that she is, she remembered it was my birthday and brought me that little winged piggy box and I absolutely *adore* it! 

Only in the blog world could you meet someone for the first time and they can totally nail it on getting you a present! (c: Thank you, Miss P, you're the best!!! 



I had a special birthday dinner date with the hubby at The Compass Grill...a 360 degree restaurant on top of a building that *ROTATES*. Yup. A 360 degree view of the city. With yummy food. Bomb.

BTW, that dress is from Target...it's *awesome*, can you see the hi/low hem???...and that clutch is K. Slademade and I'm *so* in love {big huge HEART}

Actual birthday was zoo and hanging out with the fam...


And these cupcakes (with *pink* in the middle and sprinkles) that my hubby actually made all by himself...how adorable is that???

So thanks for all the wishes, it worked!!!

It was perfect. (c:

Hope y'all had fun with the long weekend, too! 

What were *you* up to?

And don't forget to get in on the Shabby Apple $75 GIVEAWAY!!!!


You have until Friday to get in on the action!!!

Happy Birthday! Can I tell you that I am WAY jealous that you two got to meet in person? I love Patience and so badly want to attend her wedding. I am happy you two met, how fun! Love that dress!

You are so welcome!!! Glad you loved it as much as I did. :). Looks like you had a fabulous rest of your weekend, that dress looks gorg on you, delish food and 360 views? Shut the front door! Maybe we should double there some time.

Darling! I'm so glad you had such a fab birthday! I laughed out loud when you said that only a fellow blogger could nail your birthday present the first time you meet. SO true.

I'm in total denial that I'm even a blogger. I'm approaching almost a week without posts, so I'm guessing no one is even reading anymore. ;-)
