My birthday festivities

So this year I decided to keep things calm (for once) to celebrate my birth. Usually there is bars, dancing, large groups of people, and a dd that is an expert at drunk wrangling. 
This year I opted to hit dinner with my brother.
He picked me up and off we headed to the casino (it's kind of our thing). We at at the steakhouse above Harrahs.
It was great our sever was sweet and the view was to die for.
For those who don't know you can see the Missouri River and the downtown Omaha skyline perfectly from here. 
We had champagne with dinner. 
And I got to eat one of my favorite food in the entire world, PRIME RIB! It was delicious even though I didn't finish it. 
And since it was my birthday they brought me one of the cutest little cheesecakes.
Once dinner was over my best friend in the entire world joined us for unlimited drinks in the diamond lounge. Apparently I didn't take a picture but the view was pretty nice from there also. 
All in all it was a pretty nice and calm birthday. Cheers to 26!

Happy Golden Birthday to Me!

      So I have come back and forth over the years deleting everything from my blog and starting fresh or just writing a blog I never actually published. The past few years of my life have been a whirlwind of being insanely busy while still trying to juggle my big ideas. Well thats neither here nor there, this year I have decided I am doing to take a time out everyday to blog. I think it will be a beautiful way to commemorate my golden year of life. I have no plans on limiting my blog to any one topic. The possibilities could include makeup, beauty, fashion, family, food, kids, life with a wounded warrior, or even just interesting stories told to me by my overly dramatic children.

      Lets start in the beginning, I grew up with a single parent. My mom had two previous children and my dad had three previous children. I was just like any other little curly haired blonde girl. I grew up in a poor neighborhood in an average sized town. My childhood had its ups and downs but for the most part it was average. 

      These days I am just a mom, starting my 26th year today. I have dozens of interests and about a million creative hobbies. I change my hair like normal people change their clothes. I love getting all dressed up and painting my face however I don't frequently do it. I love my yoga pants just as much as I love mascara. You can often find me running around doing my mom thing. 

      However in other news, I drink too much and swear too much. My humor tends to be inappropriate and a little bit vulgar. Recently I have found a new love of infinity scarves. Shoes give me as much happiness as chocolate. And Im pretty sure my veins are filled with coffee and wine.

      Well heres to twenty-six... Wish me luck and enjoy this witty little endeavor I have decided to take on!
