36 & Thriving

me 2

Yesterday I turned 36.

I’m not mad about it.

In fact, it was probably the best Birthday I have had to date. That is until I got stung by a wasp all while thinking, “today was a good day.” (Quote made famous by the one and only  Ice Cube)

Then BAM Walter the wasp decided to bring me back down to earth. I was certain my arm was going to fall off so of course I had to call my Mom. I don’t care what anyone thinks, even at 36 years old I still need my Mom to reassure me of the most ridiculous things.

I’m happy to report that my arm is still intact, and there is just a small red spot where Walter attacked. I’m pretty sure he was just telling me Happy Birthday, so I can’t even stay that mad at him.

I thought you all might enjoy hearing about the highlights of my Birthday. Or you can just humor me and read them because like I said, yesterday was pretty great.

Alex took me to Mac’s Drive-In for lunch. It is a staple if you ever visit McCook. Classic old school drive-in food. I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in southwest Nebraska. Get the pizza burger and onion rings, you won’t be disappointed!

Mac's Drive-In

Not one, but TWO pairs of shoes showed up on my doorstep yesterday. It pays to be addicted to shoes. Then the shoe gods know when to reign down! shoesSteve Madden Black Wedges found here  Marc Fisher Espadrille sneakers found here

denim jumper 2Denim Jumper found here. **Side note Frankie and Jules has AMAZING clothing, don’t just check out this, look at EVERYTHING!!!

I also got this denim jumper as a birthday present to myself. I am a firm believer in spoiling myself each year on my Birthday. Or I just like to use the excuse to shop, but hey, whatever works right!!

Afternoon cocktails while floating the day away in our pool. It was a balmy 97 degrees here yesterday so it was the only way to spend the afternoon!

Watching Jersey attack the garden hose. I should have captured it on video, makes my life every time she does it!IMG_4292

My birthday ended with dinner cooked by Alex and binge watching Younger. I’m pretty sure 36 is going to be my year. So watch out because I’m comin’ in HOT!!!!!!!
