It's My Birthday

Today is my birthday. I'm 33...................I think.
(Sadly, I'm not kidding. Over the past few years whenever I am asked my age, I have to sit there and think about it for a few minuets and even then, I can't get it right! Ha! ). 

This morning I am making bacon, herb cupcakes and
my mom is coming over to take me and kids shopping and then hopefully my hubby and I can have a nice dinner at home when he gets back from work. It seems like the perefct day to me, nice and simple, just spending time with family.

As you all know I recently went back to work and I got my first paycheck the other day so I decided I deserved a couple birthday presents in the form of gorgeous weight loss incentive. 
I am BIG on gorgeous clothes as weight loss incentive. 
For me, it works like a charm, every time!! It keeps me SUPER motivated.


so, I bought myself this  ridiculously gorgeous linen tuxedo jacket from EmersonMade which I will wear with EVERYTHING! I am totally obsessed and in love!

and this utterly adorable silk dress from Anthropologie

And these 3" nude, patent leather pumps from Steve Madden
I have been really needing a nice round toe nude pump but now that I'm a mama of    T*W*O   I decided to try a shorter heel.  I went with a 3 inch heel instead of my usual 4 inch with a platform. We'll see if I like them!


Happy Birthday To Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I've lost 21 pounds....................39 left to go!!! 
I'm getting there!! And yes I bought the clothes above in the size I WANT to be not the size I am now. Trust me, when you buy something that gorgeous in a smaller size you WILL reach your weight loss goals.

Firstly, Happy Happy Special B-Day to yooooo!

Secondly, congrats on the weight loss!

Being a mum and nearly 40, I never use that as an excuse to buy shorter heels. I still strut around in 5½ inch platforms.

Loving the jacket.

Happy birthday, Hanna! You deserve it! I'm right behind you. I'll be 32 in 6 weeks...and yes, I have to think about it, too. Its a "my brain is mush" mommy thing. Happens to the best of us.

Love your choices (though being 5'2", I still opt for the tall heels. I need the help. ;)

I noticed in your pic above that you looked thinner. Congratulations! Buying a size smaller...smart girl. ;)
