Weekly wrap up

So we're back and I'm sure you're sick of me saying this but this was a wonderful, beautiful week!  Nothing helps to teach you how loved you are better than a birthday!  People band together to celebrate with you and love on you.

I had a great week of outings, great food and drink and fabulous community!

I am so blessed!

Check out the beautiful flowers for sale at Whole Foods.  I didn't buy anything, but like any devoted Instagramer I did stop for a photo :)

After work on Friday I went out for a coffee, I loved the flower on the table :)

Birthday party prep (I'm the nerd who bakes my own cupcakes).  That right there my friends is a lot of cream cheese, butter and sour cream, I'm making about 60 cupcakes for the weekend!

My niece and nephew stayed at my parents house on Saturday night, what a cute moment they had on Sunday morning.  They're kind of my favorite.

I love when I get to snuggle a bit with my niece.  She's such a sweetie!

I did some gluten free baking and what a smashing success!  They actually rose!  (Recipe coming in June :))

Here are those same gluten free cupcakes nice and frosted.

Working Closet challenged us to a 30 day "get dressed" challenge.  This was day one (conveniently my birthday, so I totally wanted to look adorable anyway!  Can you believe that dress is from a thrift store, love!)

My sister took me out to lunch and grabbed me this finger tattoos from a vending machine.  So much fun to be had!

Look at how crafty my co-worker is!  She made this bouquet for me out of duct tape for my birthday!

All the wonderful treats I got on my birthday :)

The wonderful people who went out for birthday drinks with me.

Get dressed day 2

Get dressed day 3 (playing with stripes, I think it works).

I got to do some shopping!  I'm moving out, hooray!  Check out all those towels (I bought everything for my bathroom this week at Ross and TJ Maxx, score!)

A delicious birthday treat with my wonderful friend.  Thank you Keegan Gerhard!

Get dressed day 4

My sister and I out at my birthday dinner, I posted this picture a bit late.

Ah what a week!  It's been so busy but so wonderful, I wouldn't trade it for the world.  There is so much more to come!

I hope you had a beautiful week as well, and if not then I hope that next week you can find joy even in just the small things. Enjoy!
