Happy Monday friendies! I must confess… I’m unusually chipper this morning because today happens to be my birthday! *cue the confetti* Hooray! And this one has been even better than usual as I’m technically celebrating for a second time. Muahaha. This weekend, I made the drive back to Dallas for a birthday dinner with my family! We have very strict traditions when it comes to birthdays, so I couldn’t miss out. One of those involves picking whatever dinner and desert the birthday-ee wants. Of course I opted for crawfish and my mama’s home-made-from-scratch-so-good-it’s-sinful apple pie! I’m still full. Not even kidding.
If you follow along on Instagram, you saw a sneak peak of this gorgeous cerulean blue dress I wore for the occasion! I realize it’s only April, but I’m tempted to say this is going to be one of my favorite summer dresses. Just imagine how gorgeous it would be at the beach. The off-the-shoulder, scallop hem detail makes it one of the prettiest things I’ve ever seen, but what I really love is it’s billowy cut! The pictures don’t do that feature justice, but in person it’s so very darling. For sizing reference, I ordered a small! I decided to get the hem taken up a couple of inches since I’m 5’2″… a fair tradeoff considering it was only $17 to begin with!
The rest of the week is looking bright, as I’m grabbing dinner with my roomie and best friend followed by a viewing of ‘The Longest Ride,” the new Nicholas Sparks movie! Have you seen it yet? Oh y’all. It’s good. This will be my second time and I regret absolutely nothing. A bigger birthday dinner will take place Wednesday followed by a night downtown on Thursday! I wasn’t wild about my birthday falling on Monday initially, but I have to say… I could get used to this all-week fun kinda thing! ;)
Love from Texas,
P.S. Here’s a pic of me and my cutie parents at dinner on Saturday! Say hi to my little crawfish friend!
P.P.S. If you noticed my legs looking a little funky in these pics, fret not. It’s the result of a horrible sunburn I got two weeks ago! I decided it would be a fabulous idea to lay out… on a white dock… on a lake… with no sunscreen on. “I just want to get a base layer!” was the excuse I told my friends. They, along with all of you, now have permission to slap me.
