All I want for my birthday is…..

This week has flown by, I’m 92% sure Cash has started to teethe, instead of the cheerful always full of smile baby, he’s been so much fussier, and clingy this week. I love that he loves me so much he finds comfort and is soothed by being in my arms, however that makes getting ANYTHING at all done damn near impossible. He’s sleeping way less during the day (no more naps every 2 hours, now it’s more like 30 min naps every 3-4 hours), but he does sleep through the night which is amazing for us. He just turned 4 months old on sat! Oh I love him so so much!

This morning, he was all bright-eyed, I threw my hair up in a top knot, which I have been doing a lot lately, the style is so laid back, yet so polished and still a little edgy, perfect for me to fall in love with, obvi.

My birthday is this sat! Whoo-hoo, I’ll be 26, I really feel like 25 was a great year for me, I met the love of my life, had a baby, got engaged, started pursuing my passion, and grew a whole shoe size! I can’t wait to dive into 26 and see what this year has in store: Cash’s first birthday, the birth of my niece Marley, and my brother’s wedding are all exciting and in the near-distant future! Now, I have admittedly the worst history of birthday events ever, I mean as a child my mother did such a spectacular job not only throwing us awesome birthday parties, but also making our actual birthday (parties are always on weekends so 5/7 birthday parties aren’t on ACTUAL birthDAYS) very special. So, now even though I’m fully grown, I still celebrate my birthday for at least 3 days. This year it falls on a sat, which means a whole entire birthday weekend. I try to have a big to-do dealio birthday every year. Just something with a lot of people, alcohol, and Publix cake is what I’m all about, and EVERY year, no one shows up ever, I mean, seriously no one. I would explain further, but that’s just depressing, and it’s almost my birthday so I ┬ádon’t want to be a downer. Anyway, taking all that into consideration, this year: keeping it mellow. James is obsessed with UFC and one of his favorite fighters Johny Hendricks is fighting on my birthday, so I’m compromising: he gets to watch the UFC fight on MY birthday, but we’re going to spend the whole DAY before and AFTER doing what I want to do. What do I want to do? Well tomorrow when he gets home from work we are going to spend the evening at a hotel on Treasure Island, I want to drink and be in a hot tub until 2am, then saturday during the day, we will be relaxing and I will be sipping on Mojitos at the beach, I am SO pale, that needs to be fixed, then after a nap, I want my close friends to come to my house and drink with me and distract me from the fact that I’m watching sports on my birthday, lol. And then of course I want to wrap up my weekend with Sunday Brunch at Datz. Here’s my attire!!

I can’t decide between this white dress or this black look for friday evening dinner, I’ll probably do the black just because it’s more slimming and I’ve still got baby weight to loose.

And here’s my on the beach look, the high-waisted bikini allows me to cover some heavier hips since I still have baby weight to loose, however it looks way trendier and less conservative “mom-ish” than a simple one piece.
