Happy Friday sweet friends! I know lots of people are off work today for Good Friday and though I too am off work, it’s not for Good Friday…its for my pre-birthday shopping day! (Ok, I lie a little. I am technically off work due to the holiday, but am pretending I’m off because its National Allison is Going Shopping with Her Mom for Her Birthday Dress Day. You all got the memo right?!
My birthday is around the corner (April 12) and though I usually obsessively anticipate my birthday months ahead, this year I’ve been a little slow on the uptake. I don’t know if its the stress I’ve been under the past few months, the focus on our upcoming move, or what, but I’ve kinda been “ehhh” about the whole thing. However, I got my Anthro birthday card in the mail earlier this week, and suddenly I perked right up!
So I’m headed home this weekend to celebrate an early birthday with my family. My mom and I have a big weekend of shopping planned (Friday is Anthro, J.Crew, Banana, Nordstrom, and Ann Taylor day, while Saturday is our big treasure hunting/thrifting day.) Of course its also Easter, and we’ll celebrate that on Sunday, but until then…happy early birthday to me! (Guess I’m finally in the birthday spirit!)
On the task list this weekend? Pick out a birthday dress for my celebration with my friends, score some new black shades, use my Anthro discount card
like crazy wisely, hit Ann Taylor’s crazy big sale (40% off everything), and find some perfect spring wedges. (God please don’t let Matt read this before the shopping day is over.) Then Saturday, we’ll do a fun birthday dinner with my family and take an obsessive amount of pictures which I’ll post later next week. On Sunday, the focus shifts to something more important though as we celebrate the joy and hope that Easter brings and give thanks for all the wonderful blessings God has given us.
So with that, I’m off to Houston! Hooray for birthdays, early celebrations, and time with family! Enjoy your weekend!
