Five on Friday - Birthday Edition

It was my birthday on Wednesday and I had a fabulous day. Here are the five best things about that day. Remember to link up with these ladies Darci, April, Natasha, and Christina.

I celebrated a day early with my mom by having high tea at our favorite little tea house Laura's Tea Room in Ridgeway, SC. I've talked about this before, but it really is a wonderful experience. The food is great, the tea selection is impressive, and every detail from the tea cups to the table settings are planned to a T. (pun intended.)

I had my nails done and just couldn't take anymore dark colors so I decided to go with Essie's Mademoiselle. I love it! It's a really light, delicate pink and so pretty. I've also been using Burt's Bees Almond Hand Cream and it's amazing!

If you live in an area with a Cupcake store, then you know you get a free cupcake on your birthday. I stopped by after work to pick mine up and oh was it good.

Andy really hit it out of the park with the birthday present this year: a prenatal massage! I don't think I've ever been so excited about a massage in my life, which is saying something because I'm always excited about a massage. Question is: should I use it now or wait until I'm big and achy? 

I got the very best present of my life the night before my birthday, I felt my daughter move in my belly for the first time. I wasn't sure if the little bubble was actually her, but it was and it was amazing. I just laid in bed, smiling from ear to ear, and thanking God for such a wonderful blessing.


  1. Happy belated birthday! Sounds like it was fabulous!

  2. Sounds like a great week, and I love your best present of all.

  3. stopping by from the link up, happy late birthday! That cupcake looks delicious and a massage sounds heavenly! Happy weekend! :)
