Happy Birthday Week to me!

Yes, it is that time of year again. The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and my birthday is rapidly approaching. I love my birthday and I try to drag it out as long as possible. In the past, I have tried to celebrate for my whole birthday month. Now that Miss H also has a March birthday, I have had to cut it down to just my birthday week. (I don't mind sharing!)

I have been trying to figure out what to do differently this week to make it special for myself. One thing that has really been irritating me lately is how often I dress up. I have lots of cute dresses, skirts, and shoes in my closet that never get worn. My standard mom-iform is jeans (any variety of pants, capris, or shorts) and a t-shirt. Shoes usually come in the comfortable variety: running shoes or flip flops.

This week I am really going to challenge myself to dress like a girl if you will: dresses, skirts, and flirty shoes, oh my! I already have my first outfit picked out and I am so excited. If you want to keep up with fun, check out my Cultivating Rosebuds facebook page where I will be uploading a picture of my attire each day this week. If you want to play along, dress up in something pretty, take a picture of yourself, and upload it to my facebook page. (Wednesday, March 30, is my actual birthday, so playing along on that day would be a super birthday gift for me!)

Have a great week, y'all!

Cute, cute, cute idea! I may upload a picture of my going to dinner outfit tonight for our Anniversary dinner...can't wait to see what you're wearing!

OK, so I love the mom-iform word. You need to send that in to Urban Dictionary! And I love this whole idea! I'm curious to see if you make it through the whole week.

What a great idea! Looking forward to seeing what you put together! I often sit in stretchy yoga type pants and a tank top......every once in a while I get dressed up! This weekend we did. It was fun. ;-)

What a fun idea! And Happy Birthday week!

Erin said...

Love your idea, and I need to do the same thing. It's hard, though, when mother nature can't figure out if it's spring yet or still winter (it snowed yesterday!).

happy birthday week!

A very happy birthday week to you! I also believe in prolonging the pleasure as long as possible.
And the dressing up idea? Brilliant!

I love wearing fun pretty clothes but more so in the summer. Right now I'm still snuggled in fleece and sweats!

I'm gonna go peek at you in your pretties though.

Happy Birthday week!
