Things you can do on your birthday.  'Cause it's your birthday!

Have ice cream for breakfast
Skip the gym and sleep in
Start the day with a manicure
Have champagne with lunch
Continuously some people that it is indeed your birthday yet blush when your friends shout it across the room
Feel oh-so-loved by all your long lost friends that post on your wall
Wear pleather leggings
Buy yourself some french macaroons
Getcha hair did
Give your number to the cute waiter
Dance on a bar

I may or may not have done some of these things.
I did.

Weekly Gratitude

  • Thank you for Benadryl, which is really a clutch little drug when I have my allergic reactions (the actual cause is still To Be Determined).  Those little pink pills do me wonders when I spontaneously break out in hives.
  • Thank you for the Universal Athletic warehouse sale.  I got two new awesome pairs of shoes, (one being a pair of Asics that I've wanted for a while now), some cute hats, and some great work out gear, for real cheap. Heck yes.
  • Thank you for my awesome car. I love it. She's nice, she never lets me down, and we've had a lot of miles together.
  • Thank you for my mom, who drove to Helena with me for my job this week. Talk about selfless and kind.
  • Thank you for free wing night at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman.  Seriously.  Everyone must check this out.
  • Thank you for my brother and his safe trip to Turkey.  While I have yet to gather all the details, he had a great and safe time.  I'm so proud of him, and glad it was a success!
  • Thank you for Sam, our intern, who is so good at all the graphic design and creative things she does, and for bringing me a white chocolate mocha yesterday.

Happy Monday!  Here are some inspirations for this week!

Ummm, how delicious do these look?

Presh Pineapple coin purse from Kate Spade.
Pineapples+Kate Spade= 2 of my fave things

I'm pretty sure that if this was in my house, I would be much more inclined to grocery shop. 
And even cook.
It's almost wedding season!

Oh you fancy, huh?

Have a wonderful week!

Weekly Gratitude

  • Thank you for letting the Bozeman Hawks win state.  It was awesome. (And I feel slightly redeemed from 5 years ago when we that sad?  haha)  GO HAWKS!
  • Thank you for letting Rikka survive her 21st birthday.  I can't wait to take her out this summa'!
  • Thank you for my parents friends: They take me out to lunch, always engage me in their interesting conversations, and give me bigs hugs, as if I was their own daughter.  So sweet.
  • Thank you for fun, random Tuesday nights out with my friends. I like feeling like I just might be in college still.
  • Thank you for Saint Patrick's Day. What a wonderful holiday to celebrate being Irish and awesome.
  • Thank you for my boss, and the AMAZING cupcakes she brought us on St. Patrick's Day.  Devil's food cake with Guinness and Bailey's buttercream frosting.  Seriously.  I almost died.
  • Thank you for March Madness.  I love everything about college basketball: the games, the fans, the nail-biting endings, the hype, the comentator's random, silly comments.  It's madness, baby!!
  • Thank you for Tumblr, Pintrest, other blogs, and all the other places to find delightful little photographs.

  • Thank you for my lil' baby sista, Frix, whose birthday is tomorrow.  She turns 21 and I'm sure it's gonna get crazy.
  • Thank your for prep basketball for entertaining me for the last week (and this coming weekend) and getting me even more excited for March Madness.  Go Hawks!  (Bozeman Hawks this weekend and Jay hawks this month!)

  • Thank you for my lil' brother Henry, and his safe travels to Istanbul, Turkey, where he is on a little mission trip with Campus Crusade for Christ. I am so proud of him, and hope he has the time of his life!
  • Thank you to La Chatelaine, a wonderful little chocolate shop here in Bozeman.  They now make french macaroons, so I could finally have experience them, instead of just drooling over all the pretty ones I see in photos.
