Stephen and Dakota got me this little dress for Mother's Day, and I'm so smitten with it. I don't know what it is about it, probably that it falls into that cream/beige/lace category (see more about my addiction here) but I just couldn't get it off my mind. I knew I wanted to wear it as my "Special Mother's Day dress," and yes there is such a thing, just ask Stephen. We talked very seriously about it for 20 minutes via text. Anyway, the sweet Jana at August Wrinkle sent me the most beautiful, mint filled package last week, and boy was I excited! Among all the prettiness was a mint and gold ring, and I knew it was just what I needed to pair with my new dress. My mother-in-law even commented on how pretty it was! That's a sweet thing if you ask me! Lately I've been crushin' hard on anything gold, and mint. And coral. And Mustard. And polka dotted. And striped. Oh my! ps- yes, I am aware that my head looks like a lions mane. That's the Florida humidity, y'all.

Is it okay to be still talking about my birthday? I don't care, I have to share this! For my 21st birthday, my mom planned a surprise Cowboys + Indians themed birthday party! How cute is that? Hindsight really is 20/20 because looking back I feel silly that I didn't pick up on some of the things they were doing. But she manged to pull it off without a hitch! All of my favorite people were there, my beloved teepee that Stephen got me for my 17th birthday was basking in sun after being kept in a box in my closet for years, my Indian princess outfit was all ready there and waiting for me to slip into it, and she made the most deliciously adorable food. Cactus Juice anyone?
It's probably my most favorite birthday ever, with Disney World (5th birthday) and Disney Land/California Adventures (10th birthday) in close seconds! I've thrown a few surprise parties, but never been given one, and truthfully, I've always wanted one. So now I feel fulfilled in the birthday department. ;) Thanks mom, you rule at throwing one adorably sweet and fun party!
