Me = 23

That's right...I'm 23, and I'm not happy about it. I have this really irrational fear of growing up! I am a responsible adult, but I lament the fact that I don't have near as much freedom as I used to. I can't just pick up and go somewhere whenever I want to... I can't sleep it on weekdays... I can't wear pigtails. You see? It's incredibly sad. But, I need to move on and just enjoy my 23rd year! Thanks to everyone that wished me a happy birthday. You all made my birthday a very special day!

I'm trying not to eat out as much, so we ate in at the office! Sarah made some absolutely delicious taco soup and we had guac, hummus, and veggies to go with it. We're all trying to get our 5 veggie servings a day, so we chowed down on them! 

Just another day at the office. I was born in the 80s so I thought an 80s top would be appropriate.

top: Barefoot & vintage - I got this in her closing sale and I love it!
pants: Express. BEST EVER. I may have worn them 3 days in a row...
shoes: Kohl's
earrings: Express

The best part of my day was getting this little cupcake flower arrangement from Rhett! He's not a flower guy by any means... but I guess all my hint-dropping finally got through. I'm not big into flowers either, but I think every girl enjoys them once in a while! And he did so good finding something unique and special so I know he put a lot of thought into it. There was some confusion in the delivery process, but I got them and I was so excited :) Later that night Mom and Guy took Rhett and me out to dinner.

Thanks again to everyone that made my birthday special!

I say wear those pigtails! You're never too old for them (no matter what Stacy & Clint say on What not to Wear).
Love that '80s sweater! Lookin' good!
Happy birthday - keep on celebrating!

Hey, I'm nearly 26 and I wear pigtails :) You just need to glam them up a bit and wear them low and loose ( that sounds suspicious now I've typed it!!!) Anyhow, don't sweat it, you are as young as you feel ;)

Happy belated birthday! 23 is a great year -- you're gonna live it up! Also, I adore your 80s inspired birthday outfit. That's super clever.
