Birthday week is always the best! I mean it’s the only time of year when you are able to celebrate you and not feel guilty right? I started the week feeling super duper anxious with no real reason why. It seems like the anticipation of my birthday always just leaves me feeling a bit unsettled. Who knows why I become so crazy but thankfully I have had an amazing week blessed by more sweet words than I deserve, precious time with friends, gifts I love and time with all my babies together. It really was pretty darn perfect! Here were a few faves from my week!
I had such a great laugh with my friends Holly and Kelli after seeing this on Monday. I literally had just gotten off the phone with Kelli spilling my guts about how I had been so blah on Sunday and just had no motivation to do a thing which was making Monday feel overwhelming. After seeing this I texted her back because when I was feeling blah on Sunday I had washed/folded all the laundry, decorated my house for fall, made lunch, dinner and dessert, completed two blog posts and took pictures for another. Sadly I had not gotten around to cleaning out the junk drawer which is evidently where I stuff all the junk AND my feelings! Ha!
I am fairly confident Holly and I were just so stinkin’ excited to have time alone together and be out of the house that it never even crossed our minds to document our night with a picture! We had the best dinner and girl talk at one of my very favorite restaurants and guess what? No more anxiety! Plus she set the bar high by giving me my first gift which I am in love with!! Seriously I am now planning outfits around this camo cuff! It is so much cuter in person..trust me! Plus even when a girl is sitting in a deer stand she deserves to look cute right?
And speaking of gifts, these are the kind of fun gifts you can look forward to when you have adult children. My girl grabbed this cute cup towel along with these Kendra Scott Tessa earrings!! They are the perfect color and so dainty. Can’t wait to show them off!
We celebrated October (6th, 18th, 19th, 20th) birthdays at one of my fave restaurants with my fave peeps and my fave dessert! Don’t we look like a perfectly balanced group of Libras? So happy to have all my kids together for my birthday. PS…my Lush Top is on sale and it is still available in most sizes and several colors. I tried the Lush tunic type top multiple times last year and it just didn’t work for me but this top is cut shorter and I love it.
Happy mail, text, phone calls and good gracious what in the world did we ever do before social media??!! I would lie if I said I didn’t feel special seeing how many people took a minute from their day to post on my Facebook and Instagram. Getting “real” mail is one of my favorite things and I’m always blessed by those sweet friends who know this about me! We also had a really great laugh when we realized my mom bought me the exact same card two years in a row! Her cards are always a favorite to look back on as she always writes something special and I know I will treasure her words always.
My birthday is definitely one of my favorite days of the year! A time to be loved on and a time to reflect where I’ve been and where I see myself headed. I shared a few thoughts and this outfit on my birthday. This is 47!
I almost felt like everyone was celebrating my birthday with me and was super excited to be featured by Jennie at A Pocketful of Polka Dots for her Fabulous Friday linkup! Jennie is a stylish midlife momma too and she is so fun and definitely willing to step outside the box of fashion. Then I hopped over and saw I was also in the spotlight for Jacqueline and Larissa for the Spotlight Weekly Linkup. So exciting! Thanks so much to all of you for choosing the White Jeans for Fall look.
Well we finally have a little bit of fall here in Texas and I’m going to soak it up this weekend! I hope you are feeling all cozy wherever you are this weekend. Make it worth remembering!
