Celebrate!!!


This Sunday (the 26th) is my 29th birthday!!  The last year of my 20s, and I am freakinggggg out.  I have to admit, though, that I'm excited to start a new year of my life.  28 was kinda challenging, (in that everything I planned for and worked for didn't work out), BUT on the flip side of that, 28 taught me to relax and enjoy the ride.  So thanks for that. :)

I have to say, that out of everything I've seen and done and made and accomplished in my life, these 2 little babies are my absolute favorite.  It doesn't get much better than Charlie and Walker...it just doesn't.  When I look at them, I receive an overwhelming feeling that life is so good.

SO, since my birthday is on a Sunday, that means this is my birthday weekend, right?!  And since January is always such a gloomy month for a birthday (you spring and fall babies have NO idea), AND since this is considered to be the weekend that people are the most depressed out of the entire year (I'm so serious! google it), I'm trying to make things extra bright these next few days, and I'd love for you to help me!

If you're on Instagram, FB, or Twitter this weekend (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday), I'd love to see something that is making you smile, or something that you think would make me smile.  It can be ANYTHING!! A picture of your dessert, your outfit, your baby, a selfie :), something sparkly, something funny...anything!!

If you'll tag me in the picture and/or use #ashley29 , I'd love to enjoy them and put them all together in a feature post later next week!

Thanks my friends...and have the BEST weekend!

Fair warning - I'll be spamming your Instagram. Sorry. AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY ASHLEY!!!!!! You know how much I love you. My big sister just turned 29 two months ago, so I really do view you as an older sister type to me in the blogging world :) I hope you have the most wonderful day. You deserve it! And geez, your smile and your boys and your outfit in these pics... perfection, much? GO HAVE THE BEST WEEKEND!

Happy Birthday!!! 29 is amazing, it was scarier then the 30 birthday I must admit! But Everything gets better. and PS I'm loving the super cute outfit!! Where is that skirt from?

Ash said...

Happy birthday, friend! I love these pictures... those are some precious little boys and a pretty mama! (And since it wouldn't be tradition if I didn't come away from a post without wanting to go shopping: I am definitely putting yellow tights on my "needs" list. =)

Happy Birthday! I freaked out when I went from 25 to 26 and probably will again when I hit 30. I have no issues at all with getting older just the fact that life seems to be moving way too fast for my liking.

I didn't know that about the most depressing weekend. I heard that up north, people sit in front of a special lamp to get a little Vit. D so they won't get depressed in the winter. I can't imagine!! You and your boys are so precious. I love their bright colored jeans too! So fun! Have a very, happy birthday!
