The Saturday before the cruise Mom took me shopping. We had planned on us picking out somethings together for my birthday presents but I just felt too awkward being like "buy this for me" so we instead just shopped, looked, and tried things on then I'd wait outside each store and Mom would pick a few things she liked best to buy me and then she wrapped them on my birthday :) It was SUCH a fun day and great girl time together. We BOTH starting crying in Old Navy (the girl at the fitting rooms thought we were nuts) just out of happiness that we get to be together for so many fun little things like that. I mean when was the last time Mom and I went shopping together? A LONG time ago for sure! Hopefully (once we get some money haha) it'll be a more regular outing :)
We waited to celebrate my birthday with Mom until after the cruise and actually ended up celebrating on Halloween night. (Another perk of trick-or-treating fun happening on the 30th!).
I love how he's watching me, so sweet
I have a silly mom and crazy husband
she got me the cutest pants from New York & Co (which us Valdostians still call Learner) and several matching tops along with a dress I wore on the cruise and an adorable tunic
Zach and "Deuce"
my sweet boy
instead of a cake Mom decorated my milkshake :)
26! 4 more years till 30 :(
(but my Stella & Dot Garden Party Earrings keep me lookin' stylish right?)
We bought Kye a junior milkshake but he had zero interest in it...he just wanted Daddy's
I love how happy Mom looks here, so glad to get to spend time with her grandson!
Zach gave up and drank Kye's shake and let Kye drink his haha
so good at sharing
Almost Birthday Twins!Mom's move but it just randomly started to hurt very badly. Badly enough to wear he left work and went straight to a doctor. This was on Nov 4th and we've been battling his back pain since :( He even ended up having to have an MRI done! Thankfully, he does NOT need surgery but just needs lot of rest to let it heal and has to be more careful in the future to not hurt himself again (this means when moving day comes...we need MEGA HELP!!! Any volunteers????). Anyways...even though he was in pain we still went over to Seth and Crissy's house but Zach just had to lay on the floor the whole time.
It was SUCH an awesomely fun night. I can't remember EVER laughing so hard. I really adore Seth and Crissy and love how easy going our friendship is and how we can just let lose and be ourselves. I love that we have kids and all but having adult-only time with them was SO great!!! Can we do it again soon please?
that breakdown...so I canceled). This year we didn't do a group birthday celebration and instead just Katie and I had a girl's night! It was great...we got pizza, talked, then went to her house and watched Grey's!
She hooked me up with a pedi! Gotta make plans to do it soon!
(btw I'm wearing the Rachel Necklace from Stella & Dot)
All in all it was a GREAT birthday filled with many of my favorite people...any excuse to get together is so wonderful. It makes getting older a little easier to handle :)
