I'm wearing my birthday suit today!

1.17.2013

I didn't really plan on writing on the blog today because I didn't plan out this awesome birthday post, and I didn't have to reveal my fear of dying at a certain age like last year...

But, yes. Today I turn ... dare I even type it...Twwwwwweeennntttyyyy...gulp...SeVeN.

I'm three years away from THIRTY!?!?!? Seriously!? Didn't I just graduate high school and college yesterday!? Somebody hand me a Depends and a sack of moth balls! I'm OLD! ;) (Jk, kinda)

It is seriously unreal how fast time flies y'all.

Anyway, I am going to be celebrating today with DDHP. He's off of work today and he is spoiling me rotten.

Last night I was laying in bed watching Sons of Anarchy trying to drift myself into la-la land when Drew got up out of bed and said he was going to get a water. It was a little stuffy in the room so I asked for one too.

I was looking super cute too. Big, baggy t-shirt, no make-up, glasses, and toothpaste smothered all over my face. I mean, I looked GOOD if ya know what I mean.

Next thing I know, I hear, "Happyyyy Birthday to youuuu..." coming from the hallway by our bedroom door. DDHP had a piece of cake with a pink candle lit and he was smiling ear to ear.

He sang the song to me and then jumped on the bed screaming, "It's your birthday! It's your birthday!"

The dogs started barking like crazy and I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt.

It's seriously those small little things that make my entire life. He woke me up this morning with a bouquet of roses and breakfast burritos from my favorite hole in the wall in town. (They are SO good y'all!) I am so thankful for him.

Talking about being thankful...do you know my gorgeous, sweet, thoughtful and AMAZING friend Sabrina? 



Well you should. She and I met via blogging back in 2010 and we have become incredibly close. She inspires me on a daily basis and last year she created THIS VIDEO for me. It had me in tears. Never have I seen something so thoughtful...

And this year she has done it again.

I cried, laughed, snorted, and kept saying, "OMGOSH" throughout the entire thing.

Have a look :)



The outfit. The cupcake. The Snow. The dudes in the background. All of it. Friend of a lifetime.

It's official. I am blessed with some amazing people in my life!

Do me a favor and treat yourself to a glass of bubbly, wine, a cupcake, Mexican food, Sour patch kids, and sweet tea for me! Make today a good one!!! :)

  9. Happy birthday!! That is the sweetest video ever. And now i'm going to leave this post open so my husband can casually see it and do the same cake thing for me on Saturday night. And then I'll pretend he thought of it on his own.

    Also, I feel really dumb for having to go outside in 12 layers when it's 40 degrees. Pretty sure it's a lot colder than that in the video!
