Birthday Revelry

On Saturday it was my birthday. I turned 29. Things got wild.

131

Meh. That's a lie. I'm still feeling a little off, so while it was a busy weekend, it never crossed over into wild territory. The weekend included family, friends, hiking, shopping for sequins, margaritas and best of all, a singing cat card from Matt. I've already talked up that card on Facebook and Instagram (myeditblog to follow along with my biggest social media addiction and to see the card...) but it made my day when Matt brought it to me in bed on Saturday morning. I used to wish that Matt would write me birthday cards full of flowery prose extolling his great love for me. Now I realize him standing in the stationary aisle picking out the perfect card prior to my birthday is better than any mushy sentences he could write inside a card.

Oh ya and that champagne that I got so carried away with? It was used to make birthday mimosas on Saturday morning. My lady friend Julie and I shot our first Thrift and Sip YouTube video that morning!!! Yeah, I'm pretty excited (three exclamation marks worth of excitement to be exact...) and you should be too... Can't wait to get it up online; it will be a glorious waste of time!

Happy Birthday! You should probably make a video of the card, so we can enjoy the singing, too.

My husband has artistic talent, so he draws me cards. They very often feature cats. They don't sing, but they're pretty great anyway.

Can't wait to see the video. Your blog really has transformed my thrifting trips. I'm thinking of hosting a few thrifting workshops in my town. Keep up the awesome work!
