I have high expectations for this next year.

Here's a few photos to recap our lovely week.

some of it down.

The sweetest husband {ever!} surprised me with the leather jacket
I've been wanting. I was so surprised and excited.  It fits like a glove, and I still don't want to take it off. I got to wear it to my birthday dinner, and I felt like a rockstar.
 My birthday was all in all, wonderful and delicious. 

Don't forget to check in Wednesday for something new and exciting on the blog.
Tata for now,



  1. oh my word! looks like a pretty amazing birthday!

    I have been trying to track down a similar if not the same leather jacket :)

    where did you get yours?

  2. fun! love all the pics. your jacket! juu!! that is the best. and lee's card is awesome. he does make the best.

  3. @EMS, my jacket brand is Muuba, a London leather company. They are pretty much my favorite company for leather jackets. When I found them I fell in love. They are pretty pricey, but there are a few places around the web that sell them.
