1. I am in need of a vacation. Seriously, something tropical like these pictures would be perfect… #inmydreams
[our honeymoons circa October 2011]
2. My friends and I had our annual ugly sweater party and I was just tagged in the pics. Given my history of over the top Christmas outfits, are you curious to see this year’s choice?
Kept it reeeeeeeal classy. Minus the face, and the wine. :) We did a “favorite things party” inspired by many links on Pinterest (including this one!) Each person brought 5 of the same gifts under $5. Just so happens all but 2 people brought booze of some sort… I did not get the memo, whoops! I highly recommend this type of party though, it was amazing! Here’s what I brought… (We can call this tangent 2a.)
A mini Bath and Body Works “Tis the Season” candle. Heavenlyyyyy scent! (Though sadly out of season/stock. I recommend you stock up next year!)
And finally a mini holiday themed Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer…(also out of season/stock) because I may or may not be a germaphobe. Let’s just say my friends were not in shock when they received one of these as my “favorite things.”
3. My birthday is in 8 days. I may or may not be internally freaking out about turning 25.
This may sound selfish, but every year I expect my birthday to be so amazing and over the top exciting, and every year *surprise surprise* I am disappointed. This year I have vowed to not have overwhelming expectations for the day. I am going to plan my own day, doing exactly what I want to do so that I am not disappointed in others for not reading my mind.
I am going to have a great day regardless of who does or doesn’t call/email/write on my facebook wall.
I’m going to keep a smile even if/when my plans for the day fall through.
I am going to rejoice and thank God that I made it to 25 years old…because not everyone is lucky enough to do so. I am a very blessed girl and I am going to remember it, on my birthday especially.
I’m also going to give my mama a giaaaaaaant hug for giving birth to me 25 years ago…because she deserves it! :)
What are your thoughts on birthdays? Favorite day of the year, or big disappointment?
