26!

Today I am 26.
But I really don't feel any different.
I am just having an amazing kind of day
One of those days that is perfect in its simplicity.
I started out picking up a delicious skinny mocha and cinnamon cake at Starbucks...
headed off to school... it was a beautiful clear blue day...
Class was boring, but I sat there and watched as birthday messages came through on my phone
and that made me happy!
After class I headed home to meet my soon-to-be mother-in-law!
We had some panera for lunch..
and then went shopping for a mother-of-the groom outfit
She found a beautiful navy blue pantsuit that looks AMAZING on her!
Its the perfect fit, and it was the first one she tried on!

Now i'm sitting at home waiting for Spencer to come home from work...
and imagine my surprise when my favorite movie is on tv!
It's a wonderful summer storm outside...
and I found a gorgeous clutch I may just have to get for the wedding....
....and then if my day couldn't get any better I tried on a dress I bought 10 months ago 
it was a dress I fell in love with, it was marked 85% off in a going out of business sale...
and it was 3 sizes too small....
well guess what? It almost fits!!!! Just another few inches!!!!
I think I might need to go buy a lottery ticket on the way home from dinner tonight!
I decided I want to try a new place...
I'm thinking we will be going to BRGR Kitchen + Bar
a new place in town serving
gourmet burgers, fried picks & zucchini w/garlic aoili, truffle fries and wine!
(among other things)
mmmmm the diet is out the window today and I am LOVING it!!!
I'll go back tomorrow :)

After dinner I think Spencer and I will get some type of sweet treat
come home
and settle in with a movie and our little rugrats.
The perfect end to a perfect day!

Happy Birthday Me!!!
Jenni

Happy happy birthday! Your diet & exercise plan working gives me inspiration . . . though it's so hard in the summer when all I want to do is sit outside and drink champagne and eat whatever I want. :) Hope your birthday continues to be delightful. And I loooove Panera--so delicious!

"The Holiday" is my absolute favorite movie of all time. It's so nice to read that someone agrees how brilliant it is. I always feel like I can identify with Cameron Diaz because I too cannot cry:) I am loving your blog:)
