Birthday Weekend Recap

Happy October! One of my favorite months is finally here and with my birthday falling on October 1st it's a great way to start the month. First of all I need to say THANK YOU for all your sweet messages, texts, and birthday wishes. You sure know how to make a girl feel loved. 

This weekend was just about perfect. I left work a few hours early Friday afternoon and treated myself to a mani pedi. 

Saturday morning my family participated in the MDA walk and our team raised almost $3,000 for muscular dystrophy research. My niece (5th in from the left) was diagnosed with limb girdle md a year ago and thankfully with new research and medications the prognosis is quite good. 

Saturday night J and I went to dinner at our favorite steak restaurant and I was in bed asleep by 10:00pm. Wild party animals. Sunday morning involved Starbucks and a solo trip to Target and Old Navy, the perfect way to begin my actual day of birth. I usually use a 1 inch curling iron, but busted out my 2 inch and I'm loving the loose waves it creates. My sunglasses were five!! dollars from New York & Co. and a total dupe for these Ray Ban ones.

The boys took me to lunch at a brewery followed by presents and some mopping back home. I know what you may be thinking, mopping-on your birthday! And while this is usually the case (I loathe mopping) I've been dying for a Shark Steam Mop. This thing is no joke. J and I were both so excited to use it. The particular model I got can also be used as a clothes steamer and comes with attachments for steaming things other than the floor. 


We wrapped up the night with dinner, cake, and the most beautiful sunset. A perfect ending to a wonderful weekend.


Linking up with Biana for Weekending.
