a wedding, birthday, and a partridge in a pear tree

(seriously obsessed with this song right now)

The birthday was grand because I spent it with my new family. Josh's cousin got married on my birthday and it was so great seeing everyone, eating lots of cheesecake and cafe rio, and fist pumping my heart out. 

We happily handed over the newlywed torch to Parker and Mary-the newest newlyweds in the family.

Thank you Joshy and everyone for a great day, and thank you readers for all of your birthday wishes! It was truly the happiest day, and I'm glad I was able to share it with such a wonderful couple. 

Quirkiness ---->

-Hubster and I recently discovered The Walking Dead. Great show. Except we always happen to watch like three episodes right before we go to bed? Not sure how that happens. But it tends to get our hearts racing, and then they don't stop sprinting like a gazelle and jumping at every creak and mousy sound when it's over. Sooo we've been having a hard time sleeping lately. Although, I did have a dream I was killing zombies the other night. Freakin sweet. (what's with the odd fascination society has with zombies these days anyways?)

And hey guys! Check out my new sponsors to the right ---->

-I did a review for eShakti which can be found here. They're an amaaazing company that offers customized dresses for every shape and size. How great is that? A dress that's literally made for you!

-The other company is Biogetica which offers natural herbal remedies that help with a range of problems, reaching from aroma therapy for stress and colds, depression, to casual medications. You're likely to find whatever you need there, and it will be the best quality out there. 


Also, I was going to do a new fashion post with some sweet new clothes I was supposed to get for my birthday. But somehow Josh's order got cancelled? So we patiently waited for the box to come in the mail, to no avail. Hopefully that little glitch will get sorted out and I'll get some new exciting clothes soon! 

But stay tuned, we're spending Saturday in Seattle, so a touristy post will be later this week :)Here's a sneak peak from when we had to run to the airport to pick up my father-in-law:

Probably my favorite city ever.
