Birthday – 26 Things About Me

Today I celebrate another year older. I was welcomed into the upper 20’s club with a wrinkle on my forehead and a large blemish on my face. Hi twenty-six, I like you too. As  I look back on twenty-five, I would have to say it was of the best years yet. I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by so many wonderful people and I know that has to be the reason why this year was so memorable. I can’t wait to see what this year has in-store! Be sure to check-out 26 things about me below. First, this outfit!

Around this time every year, I indulge & get myself a little bday present. Anyone else do this? This year it was the colorful Rebecca Minkoff cross-body clutch. No reason to explain why.The bag pretty much speaks for itself. I am also obsessed with these distressed Blank NYC denim. I don’t want to take them off! If my office was more casual I know I would live in them. The cupcakes & cashmere blouse is a summer staple and on-trend with the off-the-shoulder detail. Purchase locally at La Ville, call to order! 

 

One of my favorite posts to read on other blogs is “about me” posts and birthday count posts. I thought this was a great opportunity to give it a go.  I hope you decide to come back after I spill some of my secrets! #14 is a pretty funny story that will have to be shared in more detail another time. 

 

  1. I met my husband at a wedding
  2. One of my favorite times of the day is taking a shower or bath. I will never be the girl who washes her hair only 3x a week.
  3. Hot yoga can solve most of my problems
  4. I can peel off gel nail polish the same day I get it done. Most of the time my nails look terrible.
  5. Tea over Coffee. Green tea with mint is my go to! 
  6. Adam Wainwright and I have one thing in common… we both have 207 bones in our bodies. Our #207 is a cervical rib in the neck.
  7. PADI scuba diving certified
  8. I have a glucose intolerance called hypoglycemia. Meaning I need to monitor my sugar intake. If you find me snacking on almonds, it usually means I am drinking alcohol or I had just had an ice cream cone. It’s all about balance 🙂
  9. Gamma Phi Beta at Mizzou
  10. Dyed my hair brunette for one month and hated it
  11. Not a morning person. Typically takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to be pleasant 
  12. I would rather play volleyball over any other cardio
  13. No shame to be a Real Housewives junkie
  14. Passed out during my first half marathon at mile 11. Thanks to the 2.1 mile ambulance ride, I was able to complete the half marathon… according to my running watch.
  15. Paul and I were married on New Years Eve
  16. Have yet to meet someone with worse vision then myself. -7.30 if you can beat it! 
  17. Best vacation was my honeymoon in Hawaii
  18. If I had to chose between wearing something comfortable or fashionable, comfort wins every time
  19. Champagne is my drink of choice! Thanks Grandma
  20. Never tried an ice cream I didn’t like.  Not great for a girl who has a sugar digestion problem…
  21. Future goal is to get my pilots license
  22. Arielle Charnas from Something Navy inspired me to start my fashion blog
  23. Favorite book is Pride & Prejudice
  24. Favorite Movie is Roman Holiday. I could watch it on repeat.
  25. If I could live in one place in the U.S. it would be in the Florida keys
  26. Fashion icons are Audrey Hepburn, Blake Lively, and Mary Kate & Ashley Olson
