New Year ... Hey, Y'all!

Happy New Year, everyone!

We had a lovely Christmas (more on this later), and then I turned 26 on January 1st! Wait. No. I turned 36. Thirty six. Thirty six. Well, I do feel about 26 (most days) so maybe that's what counts?

For my birthday, my one standing wish is a nice family lunch out. And we did that at a spot we frequent on New Years Day, Village Tavern. I got the crabcake sandwich and sweet potato fries -- they are the best. Other than that, I like to lay low and just be.at.home.


Ian knows not to ask me about taking down Christmas decorations (that happens on the 2nd and 3rd) and it's always just a nice day for us to spend together as a family, sort of the last hurrah of the holidays!

I also had one other request this year which was lovely. At 7:30am, I kept my rear parked in bed and he went upstairs, got the girls up and freshened up, brought them downstairs, fed them breakfast after they gave me some birthday loving, brought me breakfast in bed on a tray, and I had an hour of pure bliss reading and responding to birthday texts before I came out to begin mom duty :)

He also surprised me in a BIG BIG way with new pajamas and my first ever pair of Louboutins ... this was an immense shock -- I've never asked for a pair or hinted around at anything! BUT he rocks and he said that I deserved a gorgeous pair of shoes that I would never in a million years buy for myself (that's the truth). He picked out this pair and I couldn't have selected a more gorgeous pair for myself. I immediately wore them to lunch (you can see them above). Shock of my LIFE. 


Okay friends, off to get ready to shop the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale which begins in less than 3 minutes! Hope to score some delightful goodies like a new pair of Palazzo Pants and an Elsa (I wear XS in both)!
