Yellow Kitchen

I will get around to posting my Hawaii photos one of these days, but first I have to post some pretties from my birthday! I will openly admit I wasn't too excited about this birthday. I was not in the mood to turn 34. I was out with some friends a few weeks ago and we were discussing "the talk" you get from the doctor at this age. The "now that your fertility is waning" talk. My hope was to be done with having babies by 35, but I'm upping that to 36. Wouldn't it be great if our bodies would catch up with the times? Let us start our periods at 19 and let us stay super fertile until we are 40 +. Wouldn't that be something. No periods in our teens. Heres to dreaming. 

Anyway, I'm 34 now. Yay.

BUT, on a happier note, this birthday completely indulged my yellow obsession.

Look at this amazing summer table cloth and yellow chargers! Complements of my very stylish mother. (She got me the aluminum cups a few years back. Keeps your drinks so icy cold.) My sister Molly sent me the adorable yellow butter dish from Anthro. 

My sister Emily always knows just what to send. This is my new fruit bowl.
(Thanks for the hideous cat mug too. No photos of that atrocity, though it is holding my pens at my desk.)

My mom also brought me this little darling. Swoon.

I'm going for a yellow (all different shades), navy and white kitchen theme. 
(Thank you Abby for the white kitchen linens. They're perfect for me. Bleach-able.)

I've got yellow in the kitchen, a yellow guest room and planning a yellow nursery. 

Anyone else have a color they love this much?

Celebrated my actual birthday in Maui. Wearing yellow of course!


I know I need to choose a winner for the Shabby Apple giveaway, but my company contact needs to get back with me with some information, so I'm extending the deadline until Friday. So make sure to enter! Just think how great that grey dress would look with some yellow jewelry.....

Happy belated birthday! Can't wait to see the Hawaii photos.

34 is not so bad. I'm 36, but I just try to think how lucky I am that I've lived another year with my family. Not trying to sound Pollyanna-ish, but it really does help me keep aging in perspective.
