Birthday Celebrations and Purchases

So I missed What I’m Loving Wednesday, as I was celebrating my birthday. But I’m sure in here will you give you some ideas on what I was loving this week!

Tuesday we went to the casino and the Cardinals vs Royals game in KC. What beautiful weather it was.

Then Wednesday for my birthday, I took myself for a little shopping trip. 



I don’t know about you all, but Target’s Champion C9 was already good, but ever since re-branding, it is even better. I love their new logo and the quality of clothing is even better than before. They are following right along with the trends and the fabrics that I love. So, of course I bought myself some items! All my items were on clearance, but I have found them online if you are interested. Click the pictures to go to the Target page.

This last tank you will see on me in my picture below, but it feels like butter. I love material like that and have made it my mission to find all clothing the feels like butter. If you don’t know what that means, then you obviously have never found clothing like that. When you do, you will know. 

So I bought myself some activewear, but then also have been eyeing these mugs and cups since the back to school line came out. They were on sale and I gave in! The colors are PERFECT! 


After shopping, I went to Fazoli’s because they had oven baked fettuccini alfredo for 3.99 and I have a free cheesecake coupon for my birthday. I bought two pastas because I wanted to have one for leftovers and also ordered extra breadsticks, because I was taking it home. I love Fazoli’s and I honestly would rather eat there than Olive Garden or most italian restaurants. Go ahead, hate on that. 🙂 

Then I waited for the boy to come home so we could continue the birthday plans. I had wanted to get take out chinese food and watch Big Brother, like we normally do. 

He said “you have 15 minutes to get ready.” I was in spandex shorts and I told him I was ready. Thinking “why would he tell me to get ready, I already am.”

We start driving and it’s not in the direction of our normal place. He says “I found a new Chinese place. We can just go in and look at it and decide.” We pull up and he says “oh but the catch is, we make it ourselves.” Totally surprised. But he came up with the menu and we made sesame chicken, fried rice, crab rangoon and brownie bites. Needless to say, I had a great birthday!

LED Light

I have been seeing those Diva Ring Lights around and been debating dropping the >$100 on one for my desk area. My desk is in a poor lit area and it makes it depressing when I am trying to work on something, especially my Project Life. I saw a DIY Diva Ring, and set out to purchase the items but then found a LED light strip that would do the job. I got a velcro wall hanger so it wouldn’t damage my wall and BOOM, in business now!


It gives off the perfect bright white light and makes photos look great! There is no filter on this photo whatsoever. 

I think I look pretty good! Much better than if I took a selfie in the apartment without the light, that’s for sure!! 

So that is my breakdown of my birthday. I appreciate all the birthday wishes and cards. Now back to regular blogging!
