If you’ve been following me on social media, you already know I’ve recently thrown a yoga party and been back from a trip to Las Vegas.  It’s been a fun few weeks! My husband surprised me with tickets to Vegas for Mother’s Day, but the really amazing part was that he arranged the trip around meeting one of my favorite celebrities (you might laugh when you find out who she is at the end of this post)! Let’s get back…

I picked up these…

It was my birthday this past weekend!   Let me say, there is nothing better than waking up in bed on your special day to the kisses of your husband, children, and two wet-nosed dogs, followed by a treasure hunt of sticky notes pointing me to the location of my birthday presents!  Little did they know I had already gotten the best gift I could ever ask for! Another year older (boo!), but another year wiser, so let’s skip right to…
