Birthday Recap!

September 3, 2012

"Go's your birthday, we're gonna party like it's your birthday"

That was my anthem this weekend for 3 reasons: 1) it was my birthday 2) I am definitely a "shawty" considering I'm only 5'3 and 3) I had a weekend full of good times!!!

What better way to start out a bday recap than with a picture of me with my birthday surprises....

one of which happens to be what I am blogging from right now. I am SO excited to be writing my very first blog post from this baby....

My new MacBook pro---an amazing birthday gift from my sweet parents! I have always been a PC girl but I have enjoyed my other Apple products (iPhone & iPad) so very much I thought I would jump on the Mac bandwagon too! Loving blogging on it so far. 

I also had a little blue box as one of my presents. Ladies, you all know what that means! He went shopping at Tiffany's! :) he is the best boyfriend in the world. Look at this beautiful necklace he bought me....

So as you have guessed I celebrated my birthday (September 1st---the same day as the one & only fashionista Rachel Zoe's bday!) this past weekend and I had SUCH a great time!!! Friday I went up to Knoxville and met one of my best friends out for a night of dancing (and watching a little UT football). Of course first thing's for a new outfit at Forever 21. I ended up buying 3 dresses but only wore 1 as planned (neither of which are pictured below. I KNOW y'all have missed my dressing room pics...wink wink)...

A little neon yellow never hurt anyone. I was going to wear this dress out Friday til I realized I was watching UT play, and their color is orange.
Check it out HERE for $17.80 (also available in pink online!)

Little red dress. It reminded me of a Victoria Beckham style dress...although not near as expensive haha!
Check it out HERE for $22.80

As I said, I didn't wear either of these out on Friday night but instead I wore a little zebra dress I found that day in F21. And to make my outfit scream a little more "Go Big Orange" I added my new J. Crew orange bubble necklace! I feel as if I will be wearing it a LOT this football season....

Dress: F21
Necklace: J. Crew
Birthday crown: compliments of my boyfriend!

With my great friend Sherrie! :)

Watchin the Vols win!!!

So not only did I go shopping for a few dresses to wear this weekend for my birthday, I ALSO went shopping Friday for accessories to wear to a Braves baseball game on Saturday (my actual birthday) with my great friend (and previous college roomie) and her husband!!! Of course going into the mall I had planned on just buying some red jewelry, but I ended up leaving with not only a red necklace and ring but ALSO these babies.....

Yes that would be RED cowgirl boots!!!! I have always wanted a pair and these were pretty reasonable at $90.

I also bought this really adorable red purse from Charming Charlie's! LOVE LOVE LOVE. It has amazing pockets and was so easy to carry around to the game.

We had some AMAZING seats in the SunTrust Club right behind first base thanks to my roomie and her husband. It was SO sweet of her to invite me and my man & I had a wonderful time!!!! 

I am one blessed girl! I couldn't have imagined having a better birthday. Thank you to all my friends and family who made my fun day possible! I hope everyone has a great start to their week!

Enjoy your day off from work & school, and Happy Labor Day!

Thanks for reading pretties!
