Birthday Style

This lady. Right here. Has a 3-year-old. Yes I do. A week and a half ago the husband and I celebrated the birth of our kiddo. We have a kiddo that talks a lot, knows exactly what she likes (mostly chocolate and ponies), is kind, is funny, is temperamental, she likes to visit meltdown city, she’s super silly, and is my friend. I love her so much.

For her birthday I wore this flowy green top, jeans, and my sweet t-strap flats. With a mini-bouffant. A favorite outfit of mine. A perfect “mom outfit” to run around with a bunch of kids on a birthday. The birthday party was so much fun. Unlike the previous years, I chose to go very low-key. We rented a room at a pizza spot and ordered 5 pizzas. Let those kids go wild! ANNNNnnnd, then I go home and do not clean up. Thank goodness. Tomorrow I’ll share the 3 photos I did manage to take at her birthday. PLUS, I asked her some questions. So fun chatting with my 3-year-old.

Also, I’ll be 30 soon. OHmahgoodness… Still haven’t figured out what I’d like to do to celebrate. Something small? Big party? Fly away somewhere? I dunno.

P.S. those Blowfish shoes are so so comfortable! I wear them all the time! You can also get $10 off everything in their shop. Just use the code: 10OFF. Yay shoes!

    LOVE that umbrella. You look super cute! We did Juniper's birthday party at a place called Going Bonkers this year, and my husband was excited that we didn't have to deep clean our house beforehand. (Or afterhand) Low key parties are the best.

    I love these shoes!! I feel like I need to rebuild my shoe collection after the purge before the move. WHEEE SHOES!!

    Also, I turn 30 in 6 months and I am trying to figure out what I can gift myself that's better than what a husband would have gotten me. lol

    Cutie pie! Answer to birthday conundrum: come to Seattle where I will buy you copious amounts of red wine and let you
    sqwoosh a chubby baby. It is decided then.

      Thank you. I feel like I haven't put myself on the blog in months. Feels weird.
