a pinkdelicious day


I am a big believer in celebrating birthdays.
Every single one of them no matter how many you have had.
The more years the better.


I feel I earned every one of those years. The good and the bad are all part of my journey so I am grateful to be able to celebrate another one.


By celebrating I don't mean a big party with all the works. Some of my favorite birthdays are the quiet ones I spent by myself, just doing my favorite things and then having a nice dinner with my guys. I just feel it's really important to do something special for yourself. Little things that make you feel like a star on your big day, and I mean star like a jewel in an inky velvet sky, not the Hollywood kind of star.


This year I'm particularly excited to celebrate because well, last year wasn't exactly my favorite year. But I made it and I'm more than eager to leave that old year behind. So I started getting ready for my happy cupcake day by treating myself to pale pink baby roses, a little bit of fairy sparkle and a few other girly things (because every woman deserves to be girly on her birthday).


I love these fun Sinful colors for my nails...
Cinderella and Boom Boom...



and my favorite new scent from Bath and Body Works.
They say it's "a light pairing of soft pink petals and vanilla chiffon icing" and I think that's exactly what it is. How could I resist?


Of course I can't forget the cupcake and I finally get to try our newest cupcakery. I saved my first visit for my birthday. The last cupcakery I went to was so disappointing that I didn't even buy one. I walked away very sad. Then I found out about Icing On The Cupcake and now I'm dying to try their signature Pinkdelicious (chocolate with pink butter creme frosting). Doesn't that sound yum? I wish I could send one to all of you through my computer!


So tomorrow I'm going to be one more year older and I'm ready to make it a fun, sparkly frosted day. I'll be up bright and early and after I drop my son off at school I'm going to get what else...a pink balloon. This year I also got an extra special treat. My husband took the week off to spend my birthday week with me. After all we've been through that is especially sweet.

If you're birthday is coming up too I want you to promise yourself to celebrate.
Be proud of your journey and enjoy every delicious birthday minute.

I'll be back to tell you about that Pinkdelicious cupcake!


P.S. I always think it's so cool that my birthday falls on International Women's Day and this year I even get a full moon. Yay!

Update: It's March 8!! Just after midnight and it's officially my birthday.
Thank you so much for the early birthday wishes. It's cupcake time!
