April Fools Birthday Girl + Headed My Way

Apr 1, 2011

First of all Happy Birthday to my sweet sister Taylor.

April Fools holds a special meaning for our family since it’s her birthday. When she was born my dad actually called and told everyone she was a boy as an April Fools joke. Happy Birthday Taylor, I hope you have a wonderful day! Sisters by Chance, Friends by Choice! Miss you!

Although my Birthday was over a week ago (I might still be celebrating a little bit), I have two gifts headed my way that I am super excited about.

1) IPAD2
I have been wanting one of these babies forever and they came out with the new version just in time for my Birthday. Sadly, of course all the stores are sold out, an elaborate ploy by Apple no doubt. But my parents have ordered me one and it should get here in a week. To say I am excited is an understatement.

I tried this dress on at Copper Penny last week but all they had was an extra-small and medium. I fit right in the middle of the two. I scoured online and found it in a small and Bloomingdales and bonus they are having an extra 20% off for friends and family right now through Sunday. The promo code is SPRINGFF. Go check out the website, they have tons of cute stuff right!

Have a wonderful weekend. Check back next week as I am going to do an outfits post. I had so many comments about my outfits from my birthday I am going to do a post devoted to that! xoxo
