{birthday weekend}


this weekend i finally get to dawn this dress, as i turn 26 (gasp!) tomorrow, the 29th!
it's been several years (if ever) since my birthday has fallen on a day with an 
open schedule, where the whole day could be spent celebrating.
(my last birthday was spent moving & i can't remember how many times 
i started school on or around my birthday. so not cool.)
so, i thought i would take advantage of it :)

i started mentioning several ideas of things i'd like to do 
on my birthday a couple of weeks ago to my hubby, 
and of course he could not keep track of them all,
so he told me to make a list for him.

here are some ways we will 
potentially be spending my birthday :

♥ enjoying breakfast outside
♥ browsing the royal oak flea market (we've never been)
♥ enjoying a picnic in the park
♥ going to a bakery that make macaroons so i can finally try one
♥ going to my favorite italian restaurant for dinner
♥ going to a cupcake shop for dessert

it's the simple things that make this girl happy :)

Happy Birthday! I wish I had seen this before I emailed you; now I feel rude I didn't say it! That Flea Market sounds so fun and you can't beat some great Italian food and a cupcake. Hope all your wishes come true.
