So we’re back and I’m sure you’re sick of me saying this but this was a wonderful, beautiful week! Nothing helps to teach you how loved you are better than a birthday! People band together to celebrate with you and love on you.
I had a great week of outings, great food and drink and fabulous community!
I am so blessed!
Check out the beautiful flowers for sale at Whole Foods. I didn’t buy anything, but like any devoted Instagramer I did stop for a photo 🙂
After work on Friday I went out for a coffee, I loved the flower on the table 🙂
Birthday party prep (I’m the nerd who bakes my own cupcakes). That right there my friends is a lot of cream cheese, butter and sour cream, I’m making about 60 cupcakes for the weekend!
My niece and nephew stayed at my parents house on Saturday night, what a cute moment they had on Sunday morning. They’re kind of my favorite.
I love when I get to snuggle a bit with my niece. She’s such a sweetie!
I did some gluten free baking and what a smashing success! They actually rose! (Recipe coming in June :))
Here are those same gluten free cupcakes nice and frosted.
Working Closet challenged us to a 30 day “get dressed” challenge. This was day one (conveniently my birthday, so I totally wanted to look adorable anyway! Can you believe that dress is from a thrift store, love!)
My sister took me out to lunch and grabbed me this finger tattoos from a vending machine. So much fun to be had!
Look at how crafty my co-worker is! She made this bouquet for me out of duct tape for my birthday!
All the wonderful treats I got on my birthday 🙂
The wonderful people who went out for birthday drinks with me.
Get dressed day 2
Get dressed day 3 (playing with stripes, I think it works).
I got to do some shopping! I’m moving out, hooray! Check out all those towels (I bought everything for my bathroom this week at Ross and TJ Maxx, score!)
A delicious birthday treat with my wonderful friend. Thank you Keegan Gerhard!
Get dressed day 4
My sister and I out at my birthday dinner, I posted this picture a bit late.
Ah what a week! It’s been so busy but so wonderful, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. There is so much more to come!
I hope you had a beautiful week as well, and if not then I hope that next week you can find joy even in just the small things. Enjoy!
