Blow Out The Candles And Make a Wish...

JULY 9th MY BIRTHDAY



  Alex had too much partying!
Jack wanted to party all night long!

So, now I am 35... I felt old before, now I feel even older now that it is official!!
I had a wonderful birthday.  We went out for my favorite Mexican food for dinner...YUM!  After dinner we went home for cake and presents.  I ate so much sweets this weekend...must detox. My boys made me the cutest cards and gave me a gift certificate for a massage, they picked it out themselves.  I must thank my husband for taking care of the boys this weekend so I could relax for my birthday...that was the best present ever!  I wore my new maxi dress for our fiesta...I am not sure it I like the look on me.  The large was a little baggy in the chest...never thought I would be typing that... Next time I think I might try to style it with a tank top under and a chunky necklace.  I liked how comfy it was, so I am not giving up on the maxi dress yet.

I usually love my birthday, but this year I am finding it a little depressing...


Worn to work Friday, July 8


Friday was a very long day.  Drove an hour to drop the kids at camp...two hours to Milwaukee for a three hour meeting...two hours back to the office...then two hours to get home...LONG DAY...good thing the Alien is good on gas!  Since I was going to be doing a lot of sitting, I wanted to be comfortable and this dress fits the bill.  I once wore this leopard cardi, yellow necklace combo before and remember really liking how it looked, so I threw it on again.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and your Monday is treating you well...so far!

I think the maxi dress looks great on you! It's weird, I was just noticing that Target's sizing seems to be a bit smaller than it has been, but you're finding it too big. I used to be able to go in and buy everything in the same size there. Sigh.

I really like your Friday work outfit! I love all the colorful accessories, especially that yellow necklace!

I refuse to believe that I'm only a few years away from being old, so I'll say that 35 isn't old! Really, it isn't! Glad you had a fun birthday!

Awww don't be depressed! It'll still be years and years before you're old! ;)

I almost always have to wear a tank under any maxi dress or sundress due to the big girls I've got and the fact that I don't like having them on display all the time. lol

I love both of your outfits! Especially the grey dress with the leopard cardi and bright accessories. You look great!

That maxi dress is STUNNING on you. I love it! I'm so glad you're not giving up on it yet because it's really fantastic!

I love your Friday outfit too, with the animal print and pop of yellow. So cute!

Don't be depressed about 35. That's not old. Old is 90. You're YOUNG!

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Happy belated birthday! I am loooving both these dresses!!! And I really really want that yellow necklace from the second outfit.

I'm definitely going to pick up the second dress from Target, but I'm a little concerned about the wrap bottom. I haven't seen anyone complain about it, though, so it must not fly open, huh?

Happy happy birthday! LOVE that shade of purple on you and grey + yellow is always a WIN in my book. :)

Sorry you found your birthday to be depresing this year. Getting older is a fact of life, try to not let it get to you (Easier said than done, I know). Anyway, you look super pretty in this maxi dress! Happy birthday!

Happy belated birthday! You look gorgeous in that purple maxi--that is a great color on you! I also love how you added brights to the gray/leopard print in Friday's look. Hope it was a great weekend!
