This weekend sissy and I celebrated our very favorite day just the way we like, with big hair, dancing, and most importantly, family and friends.

After doing a little shopping, and having Sy help us pick out something decent to wear from the clothing bomb that went off in my room, we invited over the lovely Carley Martin to help us get birthday-fied.  She seriously worked her magic, and off we went, to get our dance on.

Sunday after getting up early to hit a giant flea market with my mamacites, we went back to their house for some authentic midwestern mexican food.  After we filled ourselves silly with tacos we chatted a bit about the 2012-2013 family trip to mexico-palooza.  The one downside to an August birthday is the reminder that afterwards it starts the dreaded cold-front countdown, but the thought of being back in the Yucatan is seriously making me excited for ready to tolerate winter.

Mom’s homemade brownie-chocolate chip-ice cream cake was the cherry on top of a wonderful birthday week.  Thanks everyone, for making this birthday incredible!
