Birthday Outfit + Extras...

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes yesterday.  Between the blog, my twitter & facebook, I was truly overwhelmed with love from everyone!  Im now officially in my last year of being 20-something.  Guess it's time to grow up, huh?  I say not.  It was a pretty uneventful day, except for my boy making me french toast in the morning, and ending the day with more lovely time with him.  Today we will celebrate with a few of our dearest friends in a very homy calm way, with a home cooked meal and a movie.  We decided not to have alot of people over for a bbq like usual b/c of Violet, we need to keep things calm for her.  And I didnt want to go out b/c I didnt want to leave her at home long without us.  Which is fine with me, I love having more intimate times with friends anyway.  

Yesterday I wore my favorite pair of homeade jeans, one of my new tops, sandals & knuckle ring from James, and some Roots and Feathers jewelry, along with my leather braided bracelet from Flourish.  I have two more colors on their way, and this one is next on my wishlist.

Here are a bunch of random phone shots from throughout the day.  I re-painted my toenails and fingernails.  Bella and Violet hung out with us while we ate french toast and strawberries.  James hung up his posters in the garage next to his screen printing station.  Eventually we are going to fix the whole room up for him, including a couch!  Cant wait.  We went to the video store to rent a few movies, so we shall have a few couch dates this week.  Are we the only ones who still go to the video store???

Thank you again for your love.



  1. Aww, happy birthday.

    We don't go to the video store anymore (mostly watch Netflix DVDs) but we've started going to the library twice a week for movies/books. One of my sister-in-laws is crazy about books, so her and I read together, and then my other sister-in-law is crazy about movies, so we watch a lot of movies together.

    ps; couch dates are the bestttt.

  2. glad you had a fun bday! staying home with your hubby can be the best bday gift! my husband also has all his music gear in the garage- we are trying to fix it up and get it insulated with its own a/c & heater and he can have his own studio! it will be fun to see how you fix up that room for him! have a wonderful 29th year! i am turning thirty in 5 months myself...and i am actually kind of excited about it. :)

  3. We stopped going to the movie store when we were late returning "Twilight." My husband didn't want to pay the late fee..so basically, we're bad people. haha.

    I'm glad you had such a great birthday. I loved your outfit, and aren't the Flourish bracelets amazing?
