Birthday Recap! Part 1


My birthday was back in December and I never got around to posting about it so I guess it's better late than never, right! I split it up into two posts because there are so many pictures. This is my actual birthday post and the next will be about my party.



 My mom is obsessed with cute plates and napkins so anytime they're on sale she buys all that the store has. I'm not even joking. So I found these cute plates and napkins in our plate/napkin stash. I got the one that says "hooray! It's your birthday!" and everyone else got the "celebrate" napkins.
A birthday tradition that my family does every year is taking the weirdest party supplies we have and making those the decorations. So I am wearing a tiger stripped boa that was my sister's tiger tail in her school play, a Finding Dory party hat wrapped in scrapbook paper, and birthday girl glasses. My mom is also obsessed with decorating our house so in our Christmas room she found a Christmas banner (which you can see hanging from the window), a Christmas table runner which she draped over my chair at the table, and she used my old curtains as the table cloth (which you can see in the picture featuring the plates and napkins).

One of my favorite drinks are strawberry daiquiris (without alcohol of coarse) and everyone drank out of these cute mason jars.

Here are some of my presents



For Christmas, I asked for the Marley Lilly scalloped clutch because the last purse I got was a Vera Bradley in middle school and I hated it. So I ended up getting it for my birthday and I was so happy! The zipper is a tassel and there is also a key chain with my monogram on it.
 I asked for a new wallet since I will be driving my self places soon and need something to put money in. I am also using a really old Vera Bradley wallet that is way to small to hold money in. I got this hot pink Coach wallet. It's not exactly what I wanted, I'm not the biggest fan of the color but that's okay. It is also the same size as my purse so if I carry my wallet I can't carry anything else in the purse.

 Every year since I was in elementary school I have gotten a cookie cake on my actual birthday which is another birthday tradition.
I opened up this gift thinking it was just a Lilly Pulitzer key fob and it had car keys on it! 
So I went outside and there was my Kia Sorento sitting in the driveway! My permit also came in the mail the day of my birthday so they wrapped that up too. 
I got quite a few more presents which I didn't really want to show but they included a pearl ring, a bath set, a few different clothing items and jewelry.

Luv Ya! ❤
