Bring it on 39.

Sunday afternoon, as of 3:39 this girl is officially 39! And seeing as I've been practicing saying I'm 39 all year long, I should be good at it by now. 

It was Brittany that pointed out to me that I always skip ahead a year in my age, after she told me that, I was like, yeah I am guilty of that! I think it's a coping mechanism or something. But I declare this year that I will stick to 39, all.year.long. But let me just say it just this one time......NEXT YEAR I WILL BE FORTY! HOLY COW. 

Okay, I'm finished. Back to 39. 

Friday morning when I headed into work, there were all kind of surprises awaiting me! I think I was of zero help that day at work, I was either too excited or too full of cake to be any use to anyone. 

It was a really fun work day!

But no time to let my cake digest, I had to get home and get myself ready to head out with some girlies that I love.

Brittany told Brandy and myself about this Christmas Village show in Nashville, and we decided it sounded like fun and wanted to see what it was about.

Let me tell you what it was about: ISLES AND ISLES of stuff.

Fun stuff. Unique stuff. Christmas stuff. Enough STUFF to keep you looking for hours and hours.

But we were in it to win it, and accomplished more in less than three hours, than many did all day long.

In fact many people asked us, "been here all day?" and when we told them it had only been a couple hours, their jaws would visibly drop. Ha!

I'm thinking next year I might take a whole day for it. Thanks Brittany for suggesting it! And thanks girls for the fun night. 

Sunday morning I awoke to a cup of coffee on my nightstand, and my phone a dingin' and a ringin' with tons of messages! (Yes  I have a little black girl in my frame. Maybe in my 39th year I'll get to framing a person I actually know.)

Me in all my glory, showing off a sweet necklace that my loves gave me.

Thankful to be year older, and thankful to be 39, wrinkles and all.

Bring it on 39.
