WHAT I WORE | Birthday Girl

2012_01_04a

When I was a youngster, there was a good chance my birthday was one of the first days back to school after Christmas break. Swell birthday present, eh? Some years, if I was lucky, the earth was spontaneously covered in buckets of snow, which meant, hip hip hooray, school was cancelled (in honor of my birthday)! This year was no different when it came to snowfall, but unfortunately I was a busy beaver getting things done all day. The post office was cruel enough to have a line all the way out the door, and iMovie shut down on me four times! I give up. Time to quit working and head out for some lovely Tex Mex food with my family followed by drinks with friends. I highly doubt it will be as epically wonderful as last year, but I’m excited nonetheless! Happy birthday to me.

    Happy Birthday, beautiful Mandi! I’m remembering now that our birthdays are so close together– I’m pretty sure there was a lot of talk about birthday donuts between the two of us last year. Anyway, I hope your evening was perfection.

  19. Ohh, I hadn’t realized it was your birthday! I hope it was so wonderful – snow days are always fun!

  20. Happy birthday Mandi!
    I love how curly your hair’s looking in this – is it natural? I’ve never been sure such short hair would work with my curls…!

  21. Happy birthday! It’s my birthday too this week so I have similar experiences of going back to school on my burthday (especially one sorry year when none of my friends remembered until lunchtime!)
    hope you enjoyed your festivities :)
