SLIDER

Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

NEWSLETTER

They say it's your birthday.

My birthday was a couple of days ago and I had such the perfect birthday I am not one for having parties for me, but I love going on fun little dates through out the day with old friends, family, and of course my hubs. Here are a few snaps through out my special day.
 Thrifting was completely on the agenda.
I really wanted to take home this gumball machine but the hubs would kill me if I brought this home.  I know he would view this treasure as junk but maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas.
No birthday is complete with out a little dessert.
Cheesecake with fresh berries. Yes I pigged it up and it was soooo goood!
I did share a bite or two.
I found a globe while thrifting and took a few snaps with my new mini instax.  It was a really special birthday and am so lucky to have such great family and friends in my little life.
Happy Monday :) Let the Mustache be with you!

Happy birthday! Well belated birthday anyway.
Great photos...I would've wanted the gumball machine too...so cute and you can still get gumballs so it would be functioning. Totally not junk :p The cheesecake looks delicious! So glad you had such a fabulous time!

Hahaha. My sister likes to draw a moustache on her finger too. I only draw a moustache on me on Cinco de Moustache.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Going to look yours over now.

Sincerely,

Sanna

Happy (late) Birthday!!!!!! Looks like a blast - thrifting and pigging out- only 2 of my favorite things ;) Hopefully, Santa read your blog and will put the gumball machine on his Christmas list. On a totally unrelated note - you look SO much like Aubrey's sister, Dawn, in that last photo!

Jess said...

Sounds like a fabulous birthday with all the thrifting! I love that Lucille Ball quote, and that gum ball machine is the coolest! My aunt used to have one when I was growing up and I thought it was so fun!
