The Birthday Weekend To Do List

Apr 1

I am going to be playing a bit of hooky this afternoon because today is my birthday! We’ve had such a crazy schedule lately that honestly we have zero formal celebration plans at this point, which sounds kind of amazing. My mom is supposed to bring over my annual birthday cake (the same one she has made me every year since my 6th birthday) and I believe we’re going to cook something really really good for dinner tonight. But otherwise, I’m ushering 33 in pretty quietly. My afternoon is probably going to consist of taking myself out for a latte and maybe a quick trip to Target if the baby is feeling up to it. I know, I know! It’s getting crazy around here. No doubt, as you get older birthdays grow a lot tamer, but they also feel a lot sweeter in a lot of ways, too. A good cake, a cute card and a bit of champagne is about all I need to make a birthday feel complete these days. Here’s wishing you and yours an awesome weekend! Next week I’ve got a bunch of new posts in the queue that I am really excited to share with you. Until then, loads of hugs from me to you! xoxo

Considering ice cream is my favorite food in the entire universe (without even one single bit of exaggeration), I’d gladly take a couple of scoops in a waffle cone instead of cake. Yum! [Photo from Paper & Stitch.]
