A year older.

 [source]

I turned a year older this weekend. Have I ever mentioned how much I love birthdays? Food, family, friends, fun, the one day during the year to celebrate yourself and to celebrate just being alive.

 I spent a lovely dinner with our friends,
did a lot of shopping and sported some frugal fashion,

 top: wet seal, skirt: thrifted, DI@Centerville ($6) belt: thrifted, DI@welfare square ($2) shoes: Calvin Klein, Nordstrom Rack ($12.50 w/coupon)



 
had a home cooked meal with my family, and best of all enjoyed a sweet treat with my favorite little man.

Oh, and one last thing. Received the best news...

Seriously, I can't contain the excitement.

Oh a girl! How fun! It is so neat to have one of each and see the differences. And I promise there is room in your heart for another child..because your heart doubles in size instead of asking for shared space.

CONGRATULATIONS on the baby girl!!!! After two sons who I positively adore, I gave birth to my daughter. There is just something special about mothers and daughters. I also found out I was having a girl just before my birthday. It was my favorite present. Happy birthday, cute lady, and good luck finding cute and thrifty finds for your little girl!
