Post Birthday Girl

Top: Walmart, Leather Skirt: Ebay, Heels: Belk

It was just last week but it seems like my birthday was forever ago. We snapped these photos on the way to a tasty Thai dinner in celebration of my 35 year on this earth. Ok. I just want to hit the pause button right now. I really like my 30s and I think 35 is a great place to stop counting.

The Thai dinner ended up being delicious as always but his time I got a Thai Sweet Tea and it was SO good!!! It was the perfect combination for a spicy noodle dish. I don't know where I have been! Why have I not tried a Thai Sweet Tea yet? Have you? They must use coconut milk because it was sweet but the tea flavor still came through. Yums.

I did get a little bit of birthday money from my sweet little dad so I have made a few purchases. I bought a really nice pair of ponte knit leggings at Kohl's that have little inserts of elastic at the waistband so I don't have to fight the waist gap that always happens to me. Yay! I grabbed a nice top to go with the pants at a little consignment shop that is my go-to for cute, unique pieces. The final purchase was a faux leather legging at Target. That purchase was a direct reflection of these photos. I can finally fit into this leather skirt I got on ebay forever and a day ago. So after wearing this little bit of leather I kind of got a bee in my bonnet that I needed more. I can't afford a full fledged pair of leather pants and I don't think I want that kind of heaviness all over my legs. I found a nice compromise at Target. They will be on here soon!!

I really forced myself NOT to use all of my birthday money on CLOTHES. I don't want to do that. I have SO much that I don't even wear now that it is crazy. I did buy something for the house and some super moisturizing body oil so I can beat the winter dry skin that is to come!

 My sweet hubs got me a pair of Maine Hunting Boots from LL Bean that I can't wait to wear. I have been obsessed with them for quite a while now. They have lingered on my Amazon wish list Christmas after Christmas. Now they are mine!! Yay!
