Ridiculously Long Post

Birthday celebrations are ensuing! Here's what I wore on my actual birthday, when my boy took me to Navy Pier to entice me with pink cotton candy and chilly lake winds that blow kisses at your face (which gave me an excuse to snuggle in.) Afterwards we went to our first movie together (we're 7 months in- we like to take things...slow), where I hogged a whole bucket of popcorn to myself and gave the couple who sat down in front of us death stares when they made me lower my feet. Gawd.

Below are snapshots from my birthday party, a night of flower crowns, wrist bands, and tequila shots. Tequila shots that made half of the group take a cab home, groaning, and the other half wildly dance on top of surfaces that are not meant to be danced on. Ah 23, I welcome you.
