Goodbye 27!

Friday is here, my last Friday as a 27 year old. Tomorrow I turn the big 2-8. Crap, I have 2 years to go before I turn 30. I better start marking things off my 30 by 30 list! Skydiving is on that list now, it may take me 2 years to get the nerve… 

It's been a pretty good week, 4 day weeks are the best. I'm really looking forward to the weekend though, more on that below. 

Kristal and I both ordered sushi for the FIRST time! I know, I know. If you remember my weird seafood issue, you know this is huge. I don't eat any seafood simply because it freaks me out (and yes I'm moving to the beach) but I'm working on it. I've been trying things and after tasting my husbands sushi a few times, we went for our own. I am kind of to the point where I enjoy the Hanson roll at our fave spot. We're big girls now… 

If you follow Jordon then you know she recently opened up her online boutique, Blue Avenue. I was so excited to win a $20 gift card to her site. I'd been trying to make up my mind on what I wanted, I went for this top, so cute!

I did a summer nail collab with Kristen over at Your Beauty Fix. It was fun and I enjoyed sharing a couple of my faves. Make sure to go check it out if you need some nail inspiration! 

I had been wanting to try out the Benefit the POREfessional Agent Zero Shine powder for a while, this shiny girl needs all the help she can get. After Becky recommended it, I decided to go for it. I am still testing it, the verdict is still out! 

Last but not least, my birthday weekend is here! Tomorrow I get to spend the day with my girlfriends then Dustin has a surprise dinner planned for me. All I know is I have to wear a dress and be ready by 5:20 pm. I am so excited to spend my birthday with my favorite people, we have a fun day planned. I will be back recap it all on Monday! 

What are YOU up to this weekend?

  5. First of all, Happy Birthday! Secondly- Sushi is definitely an acquired taste. It took me a while to really like it. ;) And lastly, that play date color by Essie--- I think I need to buy it. Now.

    Have a wonderful birthday weekend! :)

  22. I can't wait to see your 30 for 30 list! I love that I did one and it was actually the reason I started blogging. Sky diving was not on my list. So scary!

  32. Happy early birthday!!! And the Hanson roll? Did it sing MMmmbop before you ate it? Ookay I'm done. I'll definitely have to check out that online boutique! :)

  33. Enjoy your 20's and don't stress about your impending 30 showing up. In fact, 30 would be so much better. I am staring at 50 marching directly at me. I keep thinking only 20 more years and I'll be done. So having 40 more years in front of you is a good thing! Enjoy every bit of it!

  42. Happy Belated Bday!!! Sushi is amazing once you get into it. Rolls are definitely the way to start. If you're not a fan of seafood, you should try teriyaki chicken sushi, they're just as good!!
