Birthday & Anniversary Recap

Last week I celebrated my 29th birthday and the hubs and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary! All of that and being 38 1/2 weeks pregnant can sure wear a girl out!

Everything was pretty low key - we went to dinner with the hubs' family, on my actual birthday we ran errands, had a dr. appt and went to my favorite lunch and dessert spots and then the next day I went to dinner with some of my girlfriends. Sounds boring but considering how big I am and how hot it is outside - it was perfect! (Sorry, no pictures to share... On purpose at that - I'm clearly feeling less than cute these days!!)

July 22, 2006


Our anniversary is two days after my birthday and sadly the hubs had to work so we just had a nice meal together at home that night. We exchanged cards, looked out our wedding pictures and talked alot about how much things have changed with the baby on the way and how excited we are. We didn't exchange gifts because we bought a Rebel T1i a few weeks ago and decided that it would be a great "family" purchase in lieu of giving each other gifts. (It's what we used to take the nursery pics - so far we LOVE it!)



I also received some super-duper sweet birthday gifts that I just have to share with y'all and say thank you to some awesome friends for!

My sweet friend, Andrea from My Chihuahua Bites sent me this cookbook that I have been wanting for a while now! It seems so great - healthy & easy. Perfect for after Trey gets here!! I can't wait to try some recipes out and share them with y'all! Thanks so much Andrea!!!


The fabulous MRM from Preppy Girl Meets World sent me this KJP headband I have been lusting after forever and super cute Lilly notecards from the ever-amazing Preppy Princess who included this pocket Lilly Pad - which I am loving to keep in my purse. I have baby brain like crazy, and notebooks are my bff's lately!


Last weekend I was able to catch up with the lovely Whitney from Whitney Caroline Designs and she gifted me with this adorable picture frame! See those cute little summer accesories? Well they're actually magnets and you can change them out each season - so fun!! Thanks Whitney - you know I can't wait to put a picture of sweet little Trey in there!!


And last but certainly not least - I came home one day to a box on my front porch with my favorite summer scent in the whole wide world courtesy of Jules from Chic N Pink! See how the shower gel looks like it's missing some? Yea, that's because I have been using it ever since it came and just got around to taking a picture yesterday!! Thanks again Jules - I just love them!!!

I'll be back tomorrow with a baby update and some baby gift thank you's!

I am so glad that you had a Happy Birthday and a Happy Anniversary. Sometimes it’s just so nice to celebrate by going out to dinner with family and friends, especially as we get older ;) I love the wedding photo that you posted. You were such a beautiful bride.

That is so awesome that you and JD got a Rebel. I hear nothing but wonderful things about that camera. With the baby on the way, it will come in so handy.

I love all of the great birthday gifts you received from sweet bloggers and I’m glad that you liked mine. The frame from Whitney is so cute. I love the idea of changing out the magnets!
