twenty-three

Dress: Marshall's, birthday gift to myself (because everyone gives themselves gifts, right?)
All my life I've always been excited to turn another year older. But this year? No way. Something about the age 23 just sounds old! I don't want to be 23! I think I'm going to start lying about my age now. Just kidding. But no, really. #forever22 Has anyone else experienced this? 
birthday 23

One my birthday, Friday, I did indeed go to work. All of my co-workers kept telling me I should have taken the day off, but I'd rather not use my vacation time for sitting on the couch haha. I did get off 2 hours early though and went get a pedicure. For dinner, Larry, my mom, and my sister went to eat at Coyote Blues. Of course I had to my margaritas on my birthday :)

  1. i loooove your birthday outfit!! (not to be confused with birthday suit, haha!) 23 is a good growing year. i spent all of 23 waiting to turn 24 because i don't like odd numbers, but it really ended up being a good year. i hope all of your birthday dreams come true this year!!!

  3. Happy Birthday! Love the dress sooo much! I loved 23!! I wasn't ready to be 24. Maybe it's different for everyone..? :) I plan on jamming to t-swift's 22 as long as possible though.. haha. So glad you had a good day! I loooove margaritas too! No better way to celebrate cinco de mayo, birthdays, weekends, or surviving monday (on a particularly rough week... ) :) XO-Alexandra

  4. When you're 38 you'll wish you were still *only* 23!! :-) Happy birthday! (Oh, and the one I had a hard time with was 22) Just go out and enjoy being young and wearing all the amazing things you can wear when you're in your 20s!

  8. You look so adorable!! Happy birthday girl!

    Ok, I am SO shocked you are younger than me!! I thought for sure you were older just because you were married. 23 isn't SO bad. I just feel more pressure to get my life together (and move out of my boyfriend's parents' house). The worst part is, we can no longer sing Taylor Swift's song and have it be true. Sad day.

  10. I'm turning 25 this year and I seriously had a quarter life crisis at the beginning of the year. But I've come to terms that 25 is still young. And so is 23 ;) Happy soon to be birthday! Loving the maxi. I am totally treating myself to something nice in November when it's mine LOL.
