Another Week, Another Year

Today is my birthday. Sometimes I feel like 27 is too old. Not that 27 is old because it's not (unless you ask my students), but I just don't feel grown up enough for one almost two children, a job, a house, and all of that. Despite all of the stress and overwhelming feelings I had (okay, still have) earlier this week, I'm going to enjoy all 27 years. And oh yeah, all 30 weeks. I'm going to enjoy those, too.



p.s. You know how I love food? Last night, I went to an award ceremony for a colleague, and before the ceremony I had this piece of cannoli that I could only describe as, "This is... AMAZING."

Right after this picture was taken, I proceeded to basically shove the entire cannoli in my mouth. Hey, it was my birthday eve. I'm entitled!

Happy Birthday to my sugar soul sister! You look AMAZING in that dress. In fact, if I looked that good in anything (pregnant or not) I would never take it off and rarely wash it to maintain it's quality. Can you smell me already?

LOVE your make-up in the canoli pic. Wow! I don't know how much of that is just great skin, pregnancy glow or Bobbi Brown but whatever it is, it.is.working!!!

Happy Birthday sugar lips! I hope you have a wonderful, amazing day!

Hillary said...

happy birthday! and happy 30 weeks to you and baby.

sometimes, I find it a little hard to believe that I'm married, have a baby, own a home and two cars, etc. I think it's because you spend your life dreaming of what it will be like?

Happy belated birthday! I am sitting here thinking, "Where was I yesterday?" Hmmm. That's what it's like to be 56!

You look stunning. You ARE stunning. And that canoli... here in Rhode Island, it may as well be the state dessert!

I hope you are enjoying each moment of 27! Much love!

I am the biggest loser in the whole wide world. I had your birthday marked on my calendar and everything and then I totally still forgot it.

DUH!

Happy birthday to the sweetest, sauciest, funniest, most beautiful 27 year old I know. You are amazing and I'm so glad you're my friend!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Sorry I'm late :(
