It's my birthday and I'll blog about myself if I want to.

Helping Mommy blow out candles :)
33. That's 2 years away from 35 and 7 years away from 40. I loved turning 30, but the closer I get to 40 I'm kind of freaked out--not gonna lie.  I proclaimed that I "wasn't a spring chicken anymore" to my husband who happens to be 12 years older than me. He politely rolled his eyes and told me to shut the hell up. ;) I may have celebrated my birthday for 3 days in a row this year. I don't know about you but I like to milk my birthday for as long as I can..especially if a weekend is close to the day.
Screw the inch, I'm takin' the mile! 
My birthday was last Thursday. My actual birthday was pretty low-key. I bought myself some birthday loot, ate dinner at Chili's {had to go the family friendly route since the boys were coming with}, and then my baby sis came over with the most amazing Heath Bar cake for me. :)

New tennis shoes, Fall faves from Bath & Body, and Starbucks!

Dinner at Chili's--which I obviously picked because Daws stays quiet the longest here.
Thank you chips, salsa, and ranch for the win!
Worth EVERY calorie.

Friday I continued the birthday festivities with dinner at Houlihan's with my middle sis. This was my first time eating here and the food was delicious! I'm such a weenie when it comes to trying a new restaurant. I'm sure it's just my neurotic type A personaity, but I always get nervous when trying somewhere new. I just don't want to have a bad experience when I'm A. super hungry or B. celebrating something. Hence why I go with the known vs. the unknown. Okay, enough about my craziness. ;) We had a wonderful time and I am so thankful I am blessed with 2 amazing sisters!!
Mini Martini's...yes, please!

Saturday we met my Dad half-way so he and my Mom could take the boys for the day/night so we could...wait for it...celebrate my birthday. Yes, that makes day #3 of celebrating. ;) We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, then did a little wine-tasting at  Buck Creek Winery. The winery is super close to our house and every time we pass it we always want to stop, so we finally did. :) Not my favorite wine, but it wasn't bad. 

My fave appetizers at Cheesecake Factory.

I think I need that cute wine tree in my back yard. ;)

We had dinner plans at a winery/restaurant but decided last minute to just cancel them and go to Target get a bunch of snacks, adult beverages, and watch a movie. Homebody party of 2 right there! Sometimes you just need a relaxing night {without the kiddos} at home! 
So see, not so high maintenance  even with a 3 day celebration. ;)

Because sometimes you just want to cancel dinner plans and eat snacks like a bed...with no pants on. ;)

Happy Monday!! XO


  1. Happy belated birthday!

    1. Chilis salsa and ranch is amazing!

    2. A night at home sans kids sounds like a perfect celebration too!

    1. Thanks, Emily!! I agree--Their salsa, ranch, and chip combo is my absolute fave! It was definitely nice to stay home and have a night in :)

  2. You celebrate the way I do! I milk it for as long as I can too!

    Happy Late Birthday! I'm a new follower so don't be mad that I'm late to the party! :)


Don't be shy, I love to read your comments! :)
