My Birthday Extravaganza

 


This year, I spent well over a week celebrating my birthday!! I have decided to make it a banner year in a number of ways. A renaissance year, really. And I have a sense that it's going to be good! So I felt like celebrating.

However, for a few days there, life took a challenging turn. During the weekend of my birthday, I didn't feel so good! I am highly sensitive and one of the things I am allergic to, oddly enough, is plastic. And apparently, somehow, one day I overdid it with these smelly plastic containers I got in the mail (not knowing they would be a problem) and the next day, I was allergy-and-sinus sick.




I said, "what's the BIG IDEA????"

But then decided to stay as positive as I could (even while sulking :). And then, as soon as I felt better, I went right back to celebrating. And what doesn't kill you makes you stronger! I came out of that weekend with several new insights. And every moment of celebration was precious. Plus, I took pics...



Can you guess where these next pictures were taken? Hint: two places in the same mall...




I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style, if she does it this week, to Nicole at MomTrends for this week's Monday Mingle and to Not Dead, Yet Style for Visible Monday. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, Melaina at Transatlantic Blonde for What I Wore Wednesday and A Stylish Little Lady for Life Lately (if she has it this Wed.).

  5. Hope you feel better. The pasta looked yummy. And as usual I really love how you put your outfits together. I wish my color palette worked with softer flowing fabrics, but I'm a type 4.
    There are some wonderful things in your colors and fabrics on ebay under the Eileen Fisher line. I've bought some of her things(many are brand new) for a good price.
