Ahh It's Friday. I don't why but this week has seemed super long! I am thankful for the weekend and some sun!! I have big plans to try and plant my vegetable garden this weekend weather permitting.
First I want to say thank you to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday on my blog or instagram. Ya'll seriously made my day. I felt so much love. So far 35 ain't that bad!
My sister sent me a bottle of champagne that Matt and I enjoyed and my parents, my in laws and Matt all sent me flowers. I honestly cried when I came home to all the flowers, I just felt so blessed and loved.
Matt took the kids and I out to dinner for my birthday. It was chaotic but loved having the whole family with me to celebrate. I thought about just Matt and I going alone but Sterling insisted he wanted to come help me celebrate, it was super sweet.
A few days later I went out for some wine and cheese with my girlfriends to celebrate. We had a blast like we always do. We hit up the Avondale Wine Bar and enjoyed a delicious Rose and two cheese platters.
The blouse arrived in my Finicky Filly Brown Box this week- stay tuned next week for a follow up on that!
The jeans are a new favorite. I still love my white Rag and Bone jeans, but I wanted a fun distressed pair. These DL1961's really suck you in and fit perfectly. I have worn them almost everyday this week.
This week I made quite possibly the best tuna salad ever. I have to give my friend Liz credit, I found it on her blog, Beets and Bratwursts. She always has the best recipes! This tuna was outstanding full of so many fresh flavors!
Two or three 6 oz tins of albacore tuna packed in water
3/4 cup of light mayonnaise
1/2 chopped green onions
1/2 cup of chopped cucumber
1/4 cup of chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup of drained capers
2 TBS whole grain Dijon mustard
3 TBS of chopped fresh tarragon
2 TBS of chopped flat leaf parsley
Fresh cracked pepper
*Optional, add some toasted walnuts OR 1 chopped apple
Met with our neurologist again this week and got some great news. The fluid around Frances Moon's brain went away on its on, so no need for a shunt to drain it. Thank you for all your prayers, this is such a relief.
I took Sterling to see Cinderella this week and I think I loved it more than him. It was magical and beautifully done. I forgot what a beautiful message the book had in it about kindness. I want to see it again and will definitely be buying the DVD when it comes out!
Has anyone watched Bloodline? I keep hearing amazing things about it. We are almost done with House of Cards and need a new show to start.
I picked up the cutest blouse at JCREW. Pretty sure I will be wearing it often this Summer. Runs large I am in size 2.

I need a new book to read! Ya'll always have the best suggestions so tell me what to read next!
Speaking of books I just ordered the new Inspiralized Cookbook and this book on The Japenese Art of Decluttering.
I am officially obsessed with these pickles. They are so amazing. If you get lucky you can find them at TJMaxx, they also make an amazing Bloody Mary Mix as well. The spicy ones are my favorite they pack some heat.
Have a great weekend!
These ecards made me laugh:)
