Happy Birthday!

 This was my Birthday Dress today!
Yes, today was my actual B-Day! 
As the birthday girl I would love it if you already like my blog and come back to read it please please 
become a 'follower'!
I also finally created a facebook fan page. Would you please click HERE to visit and 
'like' my facebook page?
Thank you so much.

Back to the outfit....
The inspiration came from a lookbook on Francesca's Page I was browsing one day:
This photo just gave me the idea I could wear my black and grey striped cardi over a white dress...
 And late afternoon today after the pool it was chilly enough to wear this cardigan so it was perfect...
 Of course these platforms did not stay on for long. I switched to flats so I can move easily in the house...

TODAY: 
Had a big family party at our house to celebrate my b-day. Most got there around 2 pm so we can swim in the heated pool. Afterwards my hubby bbq'd all sorts of goodies and everyone brought delicious side dishes for a nice family dinner. Followed by cake of course!


My dad loves to tell everyone I am 29. Which you know I am so far from it...
He did get the all fresh fruit cake I wanted though! It was delicious...

The whole family (that lives in San Diego) came to celebrate!

Kids helped blew out the candles...
With kids Dad and Hubby!

Gathered in the living room to have some cake and open gifts...

My sister and husband ordered all the stuff I had placed on my 'wish list' from the romwe website!

My mom got me this super cool 6126 purse! She had bought a slightly different model for herself and I had loved it. Of course she had already bought me the Michael Kors purse a few months ago as an advance gift! So this was double...

Plus these cool sunglasses to go with the purse!

This blush colored schiffon skirt is one of those romwe items. Can't wait to style it!

My cousin (he is really my cousin's cousin but easier to explain this way) and his girlfriend bought me the perfect card!

The kids both gave me the cutest presents (my husband is so sweet) a bracelet and a necklace (forgot to photo)... As soon as I opened the necklace from my daughter she put it on herself of course!

Such a cute card from my cute nephew...

Even though he had bought some of the romwe items my husband surprised me with a beautiful necklace...

Then he kept taking one box after another from his pockets until I revealed this whole set!

And my step dad gave us this amazing painting of my son when he was around 2 yrs old!

He lays in front of his painting!
 And now some more fun photos....
