Ooh La La LO

Ruffles, butterflies, sequins, and angled… how is it that I made this page?!?!?!?? This is so unlike what I normally do. Most pages are very simple and regimented like this or this. But I am trying to do things I would not normally do. That is the only way to get better at something you do. So that is why I made this page documenting the ‘Ooh la la’ necklace from Kate Spade that Pricer gave me for my birthday.

 

I love the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan line from Elizabeth Kartchner because it is so pretty but that prettiness makes me a bit nervous because I don’t want to wreck anything! But I lept and had fun with this. I was playing around making swirls with the sequin ribbon and that make me think about using it for the O’s in Ooh. Then I just decided to make the whole title with it. Looking back on it I wish I would have pulled out my Cricut and cut a title first to use as a guide but I still like it for what it taught me to do.

An Instagramed Birthday

yesterday was my 27th birthday, man I’m old…

I had been harassing Rachel about picking a day when I could visit her and her 3 kiddos since I have so much PTO (paid time off). Last week she happened to pick yesterday and I was delighted since it would be a day off from work on my birthday.

Before heading up to the Granite State, I stopped to get some bagels from Kupels.

We chatted and had some bagels. Then the kids thought my purse was the best thing in the world and went through everything in there. There was some coupon de-organization and Nivea lip care stick stealing. Maybe some was eaten too…

Being silly with my winter headband.

Contemplated stealing this little guy…

Gnome… before she went to take a nap.

I was requested to stay and watch a movie but had to head back to have some dinner with Pricer. Must make a plan for another play-date. 🙂

I was welcomed home by these flowers from my nephews and niece!

Every year (except last year- long story) Price and I make pizza on my birthday. We went to the grocery store and grabbed what we needed to whip up the birthday pizza. It was mash-up of things in the fridge…like leftover taco meat. I forgot my pineapple for it, but it was still great. Already looking forward to the leftovers for tonight.

Then Pricer gave me my presents. He gave me the CHEESIEST card ever. I really can’t believe that 1) someone wrote it 2) it was put into production. I was cracking up because it was so awful. Love it! I had told me that I liked a necklace from Kate Spade when I went shopping in the mall last weekend. He remembered and got it for me. Plus he got me a wrap dress and a shirt to wear with it from Banana. sweet!

It was a great, relaxing birthday.
