Friday: I'm 30!

Happy Friday, y'all! 


Well, friends, I'm officially 30! I can't believe the big 3-0 is officially here, but I'm actually thrilled to be entering a new decade. {And on a Friday, nonetheless! Woo!} 

My 20's were fabulous: I met the love of my life, graduated college, got married, held three jobs, had two babies, had a big career move and became a stay-at-home mom, made some amazing friends and had great memories. But I'm thinking my 30's are going to be amazing! 

To celebrate, Brandon is whisking me away to Charleston for a long weekend! We're so excited to ring in my milestone birthday in the Holy City sans kiddos. We'll miss them dearly, of course, but it's going to be so nice to just get away and spend some one-on-one time together. We've had this trip planned for a while -- thanks to so many of y'all's recommendations! -- so follow along with me on InstaStories this weekend as we explore. 

I admit it. I broke my Lent "fast" of non-essential spending. I made it to the weekend before Easter, so I guess that's better than nothing, right? I couldn't help it when I saw these two dresses from Target; they were just calling my name for our vacation! And one of them had Knox's name in it so I mean, that was a must, right?! {Insert monkey covering its eyes emoji here!} But aren't these just so cute?! 

I am really loving Laura Cox Designs and feel like I'm going to be spending some of my birthday money there. ;) I love supporting small business owners {and fellow mamas}, so I think these earrings are going to somehow find their way into my Etsy cart when we get home...

And finally, speaking of all things birthday, my sweet little Knox is turning one NEXT MONTH. {Cue all the sobs!} I'm busy planning his first little birthday party for family and framily, but couldn't pass up this cute little smash cake topper for our soon-to-be one-year-old! 

Enjoy y'all's weekends, friends! Cheers to 30 years! 

Linking up with: April, Amanda, Amy, Andrea and Katie
