Today happens to be my 28th birthday. And since Charlie’s paperwork from the humane society said that she was also born in April or May (they weren’t more specific than that), I’ve decided to share my birthday with her. I’m pretty used to sharing a birthday – after all, I was born on my Dad’s 30th!
Charlie Bug turns 1!

This year, I’ll be going out to dinner with friends and family (including Dad of course) to celebrate. I got several of my presents early, like this amazing Michael Kors watch from my parents. I’ll have to leave it off a lot with all of the messy crap going on around the house, but it’s been on my Wish List on Pinterest for a while – and I am in love.

And in case you haven’t seen the Facebook page lately, I’ve just joined Instagram. Yesterday, I received in the mail several pieces of jewelry I got from a fantastic members-only online discount store called Rue La La. It was pretty much me buying something for me – my birthday just happened to be a good excuse.

Tomorrow, I’ll have another round of HHMMF (no, it’s not a grunt, it’s an actual series that makes me giggle to abbreviate this way) and some updates about the house (hint: think color!). What have you been up to lately?

  1. Charlie is a beautiful and lucky dog. Glad to see he was safely rescued pet. We got our Jack Russell Terrier in a similar fashion. Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday! I've been wanting a good, feminine watch…and I love Michael Kors. I just may have to put that one on my birthday list as well!
