Birthday Ingredients.

On Saturday night we're having a few friends over to celebrate my final descent into the big 3-0 because on Monday I'm turning 29. About a year ago I was really freaked out about the fact that teenagers consider me ancient and that my under-eye area is a complete disaster, but lately I've been relaxing into this growing older thing. Mostly because: My life is fun. If this is what getting older is like, I'm so down.

Nekos and I have always been party-throwers but even moreso since we had a baby. Because, you know, you can't take a baby to a bar. So we bring the bar to us. Classy, huh?

About once a week I say to someone, like it's a big revelation or something, that "you can't plan a good time." Because it's true, y'all. I just don't think that all the decorations and good food in the world can make a get-together good if it's not meant to be good. In fact, some of our best shindigs have been the ones that we didn't know we were having until an hour beforehand. All that's to say: Here's a little photo collage of what I have planned for Saturday. Here's hoping for a good time. Hope you all have wonderful weekends yourselves!

  1. Our birthdays are only a few days apart! Mine's next Saturday but I'm afraid I'm a few years older than you...I'm older than I look ;)

    I hope you have a fantastic birthday and I've no doubt your at home shindig will rock! I'm sure that's what we'll do for mine as well :)

  2. love the dress! i wish you a wonderful time and a happy birthday.
    don't worry so much about turning 29. i will be turning 39 in december. HA!
    yes, life gets better with age.

  3. I adore your blog! Have the greatest time at your party! xo from Sweden

  4. Sounds like a perfect party! I love that you guys still entertain, even with a baby. Brad and I entertain lots and I'm hoping to continue that even after baby comes.
    And ps. the 30's are awesome!! I was freaked out at first, but now I love it.

  5. Party it up and have loads of fun :) Happy birthday!
