i had my golden birthday yesterday! (24 on the 24th)
i feel old, and then i look down at my belly and i feel really, really young. too young to be a mother, that's for certain. a little too late for those feelings, i reckon.

because time is simply never on my side, we had to celebrate friday night.
russ planned a progressive dinner where we went to a different restaurant for every course so i could be sure to get my MOST favorite foods.

01. sweet corn tamale cakes at Cheesecake Factory for my appetizer.
(russ got hot wings)
02. a little hamburger with everything on it (except mushrooms) and fries for dinner at 5 Guys Burgers & Fries.
03. the original chocolate fondue pot with strawberries, brownies & bananas at The Melting Pot for dessert. (we don't mess around with any of that other stuff, no pound cake, krispies, or cheesecake necessary.)

after appetizers, we were both full. so we skipped 5 guys (i could never skip the Melting Pot.) and went shopping.

gateway was so gorgeous that night. it was snowing, the water fountains were on, and the christmas lights were still twinkling. blazer thrifted||peter-pan collar tee U.O. || elastic waist denim F21 || boots U.O.

thank you russ for making my birthday feel so special, my last birthday just me & him...
felt kind of bittersweet!
and thank you to everyone who went out of there way to wish me a happy birthday!
via twitter, facebook, calls, texts &drop-in visitors (my favorite.)
i am pretty sure i'm the only one left without unlimited text, so i couldn't respond to them all.
but they were loved and appreciated by me.
