"Free" Weekend

I'm barely hanging in today, people. This is one of those "maybe I should've called in sick" kinda days. It's casual Friday, and I came really close to trying to test the lines of "casual" today with yoga pants and a Tshirt. Almost everyone is off today because we have reached that point in the year where people need to start burning that vacation before they lose it. This year I got an extra week and I went to town on burning that up starting about March, so I'm good. And by good I mean, gotta save every last day so I'm not that pathetic "workaholic" sitting here on Christmas! 

Anywho. It has been one of those weeks. I think it's because I didn't have cake on my birthday. I plan on making up for that by having cake all weekend long to make things right in the world. I am one of those people that believe your birthday lasts a whole month, so going with that we are going out to eat for my birthday with my family this weekend. The week after my birthday. I'm super excited because we are going to the place where I had my family bridal shower just a few short weeks back. Plus both of my sisters will be there. It is hard to get us all together because one sister has 3 kids and the other sister is in college right now and plays two sports for her school. "Busy" is putting it lightly for those two. 

Hopefully this little cutie will be in attendance this weekend also...
And I get to open birthday presents. That's always fun. Especially when your tween daughter goes shopping for those presents and can't half keep her mouth shut so you already kinda sorta know what to expect....

That "can't keep her mouth shut" kid also loves chevron and was super excited to spend her OWN money (i.e. money that was left in a wallet that her grandmother gave her) on a birthday gift for me this year. Hello fall scarf!
We also have a school fall carnival and baby shower in the mix for this weekend. It's a good thing that this is our "not  busy" weekend, right?!

No cake on your birthday! That's so sad. I pretty much eat cake everyday my birthday week. Cake for breakfast...sure! Naptime cake, yes please! Red velvet with cream cheese icing, yum! Love the scarf your daughter picked out. Very cute. Have a great non busy weekend.
