Sequins and Sea Breezes: Friday Five: Birthday Edition

Friday Five: Birthday Edition

6/27/2014


Happy Friday dolls! Cheers to making it through the first week of summer!  As I've already mentioned at least 100 times it's my birthday this weekend so I'm super excited for Friday to be over so I can start the celebrations! I'm getting my hair done after work today (trust me, it needs it) and then the festivities start tomorrow. So for this Friday Five I decided to do a birthday edition. 

Meet At The Barre


{Just for the beginning... go shawty, it's ya birthday!}


{Not sure how I feel about this song yet but it's titled Birthday so it's appropriate... I think}


1. Just a few of my favorite birthday memories! From doing shots in my house before playing mini golf to going out downtown and deciding my feet hurt so someone needs to carry me... all fun memories! 


2. My favorite birthday present. Ever. I got Novie for my birthday in 2007 and I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. I mean seriously, look at that cute little fuzzy face! How can you not want to squeeze it? :)


3. My favorite birthday cake! I'm not much of a sweets person but I love strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting. SO good. Oh and it doesn't hurt that it's pink (no pink isn't my favorite color but it makes a cake look pretty!)


4. My favorite birthday drink. I think I might be growing out of this one but for the longest time my favorite drink to drink on my birthday was a Bellini. Last year was the first year I didn't have one on my birthday but it ended up getting replaced with tequila shots. I guess that's what you get when you go to a Mexican restaurant for your birthday!


5. One of my favorite birthday/growing older quotes. It's so easy to forget that growing older isn't necessarily a bad thing. I've lost so many friends and family throughout my life that I try to appreciate every day I get and remember that so many people might not even make it to the age I am now. I'm appreciative of every year I get to spend happy and healthy.

On that note, I hope everyone has an absolutely fabulous weekend! And...
