Hey guys! I have (once again) seriously let this week get away from me! We had another kiddo under the weather at the beginning of this week (a phantom fever + super lethargic, but nothing else, thankfully) so that took up some of my time. But on the bright side, today I’m celebrating my birthday! Free birthday Starbucks, for the win.
I’m officially 35 today, and just typing that out sort of makes me cringe. I’ve always said that age is just a number, and I do truly believe that. It’s more about how old you feel! BUT…there’s something about saying you’re halfway to 40 that just seems so crazy. Yikes.
At any rate, there’s nothing I can do about, so I’m gonna just keep aging and celebrating and doing life. Cheers to that!
Since I haven’t been able to check in since last week, I haven’t been able to tell you about all of the fun we had at Jay’s company party last Friday. I finally got the chance to wear that jumpsuit I bought a while back, and I’m so glad I decided to keep it!
The party had a casino theme once again, so we all had some fun gambling with fake money. Ohhh, if only it had been real…
And, of course, since my brother and Jay work together, that also meant we got to spend some extra time with him and his girlfriend, Carissa, too!
My parents took the boys for a sleepover that night, so Jay and I were lucky enough to be able to wake up late on Saturday morning and actually enjoy a leisurely mug of coffee. Ohhh, it was fantastic.
The weekend also included some of Jay’s famous ham, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches…
Some exhausting play time out in the snow with these two cuties…
And a half birthday celebration, for this cool guy who officially turned 5-1/2!
I gave him the choice of us buying a little cake or making one together, and he chose the latter, which made my heart happy <3 He also requested blue, green, and purple homemade frosting, which I clearly need to practice mixing, since my purple turned grey.
But he was still thrilled with it, so that’s all that matters.
A quick heads up, for those of you interested in all things Beautycounter!

On top of that, I’m also offering a special deal for TODAY ONLY, which you can check out in my Beautycounter Facebook Group. Don’t miss out!

Well you sure don’t look you age. It is true, age is just a number and it is how you feel. I am twice your age and I could whip circle’s around some 50 and 60 year olds. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise and watch your diet.
Thanks Michelle!! Hopefully I’ll be rocking things just like you when I get to your age then!! ;)
Happy Birthday!!!! Hope your day is amazing and enjoy that Starbucks :)

Happy birthday! Can you tell me where you got that adorable pink mug with the heart on it? I love it, so cute!
Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great day and that your boys spoil you! :) Your blog is my favorite and I always look forward to new posts!
Happy birday Courtney! Hope you have a blessed one! I once tried to make a cake with purple frosting but it ended up turning mustard yellow!
Happy Birthday Courtney! You look amazing in that jumpsuit. Hope you enjoy your Starbucks.
Happy birthday Courtney! <3

Happy Birthday! You look amazing in the jumpsuit.
And really 35 is young! And not half way to 40.
20 is halfway.
Hahaha – I was thinking the entire time about the 30-40 range (hence my thinking 35 was half way) but you are clearly correct. Ay yi yi…thanks for the birthday wishes, Julie!
Happy belated birthday – hope your day was great!
