Happy Birthday to me!

I'm 29 today!

It's kind of a bad week to have a birthday because there's so much crap going on right now at work. I hope I'll still be able to enjoy it and not have to work too much overtime. I'm also excited for some fun birthday festivities with family this weekend. It's my rule that I always take off a day of work to celebrate my birthday and do something fun. Because it's on a Thursday, I took off tomorrow for a day of shopping, a massage, mani/pedi, and some relaxation!

I love surprises so I make it very clear to my family that I don't like to know what gifts I'm getting. To me, if I know, it ruins the surprise and it's not as exciting. I usually make a list just so they have some ideas, but I never want to know any more than that!

Here's a few things I'm hoping to get...
Anne Klein Bambam flats
I have these in black and love them! It's so hard to find comfy flats that don't cut up my feet. I usually never spend this much, but my mom begged me to buy some shoes with real support. I figured I could use the brown ones too...hey, it's for the baby, right?
Liz Lange Trench Coat
My fleece is the only light coat I have that even zips so I'd love to have another one that's a little nicer. This looked perfect for spring and fall.
Long Sleeve Maternity Hoodie
I started to realize that my cardigans and hoodies don't zip anymore and I needed something comfy for when it's cold. I love this because it doesn't look maternity and I can wear it later too.

A scanner
I have so many old photos that I want to be able to save and look at later on. I'd really love to have a scanner so I can start archiving them.

It's been a year of growth, changes, heartbreak, and happiness. I guess I'm starting to feel more like an adult now. Though I still get carded, I feel less and less like I'm still a carefree 20-something and more like a real adult with responsibilities and soon will have another life to make a priority. This is my last year in my 20's and I'm hoping for it to be the best one I've had in a long time. I'm so excited for my 29th year to be happy, enjoyable, and filled with smiles!

  15. Happy Belated Birthday, I'm sorry I missed this post before now! I didn't realize you were pregnant either, so congrats on that too! I've been shopping for maternity clothes recently only I have the opposite problem, I'm going to need more warmer weather stuff cause that's when I'll be big:) I know this year will be filled with fun, happiness, and new experiences...wishing you all the best!
