My Birthday...

Today is my birthday.  However, I celebrated my day yesterday as some of you may know. Many of you tweeted me 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' on my Twitter, thank you! I'm officially 38 years old.....and every so often I call myself an OLD fart - but my guy likes to fight me on that & say, "no way, you look like you're in your 20's!!
 
I always laugh when he says that, but hey, it could be worse right?! He could tell me I don't look as great or that I DO look my age....but thankfully, he knows better. 

I got a few gifts this year but my FAVORITE is the Sara Berman clutch. I've wanted a pony hair - leopard print clutch for quite sometime now...and ta da! 
Gifts are great - but I know that the things that TRULY matter the most are the time I get to spend with family & friends. Those gifts last a loooong time. 
 

I love getting cards as well...& my guy is so cool on 'special occasions'...he always seems to find the right things to say...for instance today on my birthday card he wrote, 

"You are the most incredible, most amazing, most beautiful, most creative, intelligent and perfect woman to me & I can't imagine spending a single day of my life without you, Happy Birthday." 

I'm so grateful to God for him & for all the blessings that have come my way this year....


This is what I wore on my Birthday:

Dress: Michael Kors
Shoes: Guess
Jewelry: Express & H&M
Clutch: Clare Vivier






So there you have it....one year older & here I am. Life has been good to me so far....must always be thankful. Hope you all are having a good Monday!

  6. Happy birthday sweet Jen!! You look amazing and trust me it only gets better! I turned 40 this year and I got my first "hey I hope I look as good as you when I'm your age!"
