Birthday + SMASH Book

Soooo I scheduled a few wedding vender meetings a few Saturdays ago…not realizing that Saturday was actually my birthday! I think as we get older our birthdays aren’t as exciting. When I was a kid I remember I couldn’t sleep the night before my birthday in anticipation of my party, seeing friends and of course presents!!

Last year I quit my job of five years and I have certainly grown alot since then!! I have a even BETTER job as a designer for a hude land developer in Houston and having fun trying to get things done for my wedding!

Okay back to my birthday – I turned 27 on July 14th! As I went from vender to vender, each one had some sort of cake or brownie for me, it was really sweet. My dude and my dad got their wedding suits tailored and I spent the whole day with my parents, sisters and my dude! It wasn’t a normal birthday but I got alot of wedding things done and had fun!

My youngest sister made me lemon cakes with fresh strawberries for my birthday. AMAZING!!! The girls also got me a new purse, Beatles tshirt and classic horror dvd collection!

Thanks to my great family for a nice birthday!

Second part of this blog is about my obsession with SMASH book! I posted about it a few days ago, its like quick – messy scrapbooking!!! I only started a few pages, I have never been very good at scrapbooking but this is really fun. The second image is an envelope string enclosure I made with an eyelet setter and bakers twine!

Does anyone else scrap…or smash?

    Aww that picture of Dad and Jody is great. And I’m so glad you had a great birthday.
    I’m glad you have started SMASHing! I wish you would have made time so we could have done it together!!! But you taught me how to parallel park so I forgive you. πŸ˜›

    Happy (belated) Birthday! We’re the same age now XD And yum, that lemon cake looks delicious. I love desserts with citrus flavors.

    I used to schedule multiple vendors in a week, though on separate days, and that got tiring. Having multiple in one day sounds like it might be hectic, but it’s nice that you get so much done in one day! I hope your wedding planning is going well πŸ˜€

    Lol as a kid, we always have this thought, “what are these people gonna give to me” and all those… and back when I was a kid, I was such a jerk that I always ALWAYS had a plan on what to ask from my parents lol. I guess now that I know how hard it is to find money, I’m always calculating on whether i should ask my parents to buy this or that for me. Like..back then I was all, “omg celebrate my birthday please” but now I’m all, “eugh I don’t need parties. I hate parties and party wastes money so no.” :))
    lemon cake *o* strawberriessss~ <33 yummmm

    Happy belated birthday!

    Sounds like you’re keeping yourself busy! It takes a lot of courage to leave after you’ve been working at the same place for so long! I’m trying to find a better full time job and it’s such a pain >_<

    Those tarts look AMAZING! I just I could just reach into the screen and grab one!
