Yes, I'm celebrating all week (taking a cue from Stassi from Vanderpump Rules...or anyone from the Hills way back when). Dang, this summer has been stressful with all that's been going on in the world but this week I'm making sure to take some time for myself and spend time with the ones I love. I'm pumped to celebrate even though 26 isn't the most exciting birthday necessarily. As I get older, I'm realizing that getting to live another year is something to be really happy about and extra grateful for, so I'm gonna go for it.
Since Dave and I are doing our workouts and new diet, occasions like these are extra special because we get to indulge and really appreciate it! On Sunday, my friend Elissa and I made a piñata-- a freaking unicorn piñata, yup and she's the cutest! We're going to use her at my small birthday fiesta this Saturday. Also, we made a butt flap for the candy to go in, obviously. My mom and brother took me out for a birthday lunch at my favorite tex-mex place on Monday which was great. My mom gave me the avocado enamel pins I had been eyeing and several baby cacti- she's the best momma around. My brother gave me a sweet card that nearly made me cry too, birthdays are emotional y'all!
I'm extra excited for Thursday, my actual birthday, because I took off work and I have big (dorky) plans. I am taking a full on ME day which will consist of: a dip at barton springs pool, a stop at Lush for bath bombs (never used them but they seem, dare I say, bomb?), picking up an Athropologie candle, probably a whole foods salad bar stop, might peruse Target (alone! ladies, you know that feeling), watching Grease with a glass of wine, a bath with previously mentioned bath bombs & candle and topping it all off with dinner at my favorite steak house with my favorite guy. It's gonna be good guys, so good.
"Happy BIRD-day" to me!--- (name that show!)
