Birthday Countdown....

Welcome to Polyvore!Fashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

So my birthday is about 7 weeks away. Yippee! I love my birthday! There are many reasons why but a big one is I always get myself a new outfit to wear out.  I usually spend at least a month putting it together. It's just something nice I do for myself. The outfit I have in mind looks like this little collage I put together. I'm still not sure about the shirt. I will spend some time searching for something perfect. I scored some J. Crew flip flops for $3 at an outlet. My parents are getting me the bag. Shane got me my "summer scent" for mother's day. I'm always looking for a great yellow cocktail ring.

Now here's the thing. I did something a little risky. I have been on the lookout for amazing wide leg black linen pants for a while now. Years actually. I've found them several times, just never under $200. Well, this weekend I was shopping at the Loft and found the most gorgeous pair. On sale from $69 to $30!!!! I was ecstatic. Until I realized they didn't have my size. Sooo....I bought one size too small.

Deep breath....what that means is I have to lose at least 15 pounds by my birthday to make these babies work. Possible? We will see....

Almost a week without sugar. I am eating the BIGGEST piece of cake for my birthday. Maybe two.

You are so cool. I'm so doing a tradition like that from now on! We need a little something like that to look forward to every year!

That's hilarious!!

I, too, love my birthday and may be spending in your state this year. I am hoping to be in Nashville with my family and who knows maybe we'll head to Chattanooga and eat at your favorite restaurant.

First, love the ring.
Second, love the cupcake almost as much as the ring.

Lastly, I'll be thinking of you as I avoid sweets and my favorite snacks as well. Maybe on your b'day I'll have a huge piece of cake too!!

Well, dear, you surely can do it if you put your mind into it. Just also take it easy if you don't make the pants. :)

Found your blog through Pleasant Vonnoh's photo site {I teach at her children's school} and your posts are so inspiring! Love, love, love the outfit you have planned. What a fun thing to do to treat yourself for your birthday! I think I've seen a ring like that at Charming Charlie's over at Hamilton Place. Do you know about that AMAZING place? Accessory Heaven. :)
