Happy Thursday!!! Today is a fun day over here on the blog because I’m celebrating my birthday and turning another year older! Normally I’d be going crazy because I’m getting older, but for some reason I’m excited! haha I think it has to do with the fact that I’m SO HAPPY!! The fact that it’s already June is pretty insane to me, but so far this year has been the best yet! I married my best friend, my family and friends are healthy and happy, and we have multiple trips planned for the next couple of months! I have nothing to complain about and I feel truly blessed. Every day I wake up, thank God for another day on this earth, and start off with a positive attitude!
I was originally going to post a “going out” birthday outfit for today’s OOTD but I’ll save that for next week, a birthday recap if you will! LOL Instead, I decided to do a fun tutu inspired smash cake post! Hey, if you can smash a cake on your 1st birthday why can’t you do it in your 30’s? One of the biggest joys in my life is having fun and laughing, mostly at myself, so I thought it would be fun to have my own smash cake session. I’ll admit I didn’t get as crazy messy as my 1-year-old self but it was still pretty messy and oh so delicious! I also had two cakes, because let’s be honest my first cake, which was covered in gold, was way to pretty to destroy with my hands!! My adorable friend Lauren at Sweet Cheeks (where I got my wedding cake) came up with this beauty!!
As for my outfit, well it’s no surprise that my favorite color is pink and I’m as girly as they come, so I had to bust out one of my Space 46 Boutique tulle skirts. Yes I own multiple tutus! 🙂 I also added a statement necklace from Happiness Boutique (on sale), basic white tank (may favorite from Target) and finished with my new favorite white heels. I always add VIBRANCE to my hair for shine and had my makeup done by my sweet friend Stacy! I’d say this was one of my all time favorite photoshoots! The day was not perfect, but being surrounded by amazing people like my photographer Alex, and laughing for hours was the icing on the cake!! (See what I did there! haha)
Rick and I are celebrating tonight with a low key dinner and tomorrow we’re getting together with our friends to party the night away at Oxford Social Club! Then rounding out the weekend with massages and the Padre game. Overall a very fun filled birthday weekend! Be sure to follow on Instastories for all the shenanigans! 🙂
So while this may not be one of my “typical” OOTD posts, I wanted to change it up and share something with you just for fun!! I also wanted to take this time to say thank you to each and every one of you who have continued to support me, read my blog, leave me sweet messages, and encouraging words throughout the past few years either here or on IG, I wouldn’t be where I am without you, and that’s just another reason why I’m such a happy girl!!!
Hope you have the best day and if you’re celebrating your birthday today or this month, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! xo Vanessa
