Again, I have to open this blog post with a heartfelt THANK YOU for the birthday wishes!  It never ceases to amaze me how thoughtful you are to take time out of your day to send me a sweet message, so I want to let you know that I genuinely appreciate it!

My friends took me out for a patio birthday dinner (with drinks!) and that girl time is so crucial for our well being!  I’m truly blessed to have such a great group of friends to enjoy, encourage, and laugh ’til it hurts with!

And Ali-Shaun brought mini cupcakes!

You guys are seriously the sweetest!  I’m giving each of you a big ole virtual hug around your neck for all the birthday wishes! I’m officially a big girl now, but for all of you readers in your thirties that feel a bit apprehensive about the 4o’s, I can tell you- it’s all good! I feels so much more comfortable in my own skin than I ever have before and I’m so much more aware of what’s important and it’s easier to let the little stuff go.  And, with good skincare and exercise and fashion, you can still rock your own personal style at any age!

When I was pregnant with Jordan, her due date was three days from James’ birthday.  I spent a good part of my third trimester wondering how we’d manage James’ 6th birthday if I went into labor at that time or on the day of his party.  Turns out, I didn’t need to worry because she was ready to enter the world 2 1/2 weeks early, just two days before my birthday! I never even imagined that! It’s still crazy (in the best way) that I’m 43 (today!!) with a two year old! I’m always hoping these kiddos are keeping me young instead of aging me faster!

Good morning friends! Well, more like mid-morning! I’m a little late getting today’s post out because I took some time off to celebrate our sweet Jordan’s 2nd birthday!! We had a Paw Patrol party at the house and she absolutely loved it!  I swear she seems older than 2 already because she’s learning so much and talking so well!  We just love her to pieces and are so glad she’s part of our family! I’ll do a full recap later this week after I import all the pics!

This post is a quickie to let you know about the awesome President’s Day sales happening today AND the giant Nordstrom Winter Sale!

In two days Jordan turns 2!!  I cannot get over how quickly she’s growing up!  This small person has the biggest personality and is talking up a storm!  It’s so funny the things she says. For example, yesterday she told me “put sugar on strawberries” because that’s how Grandma serves them! I love hearing how she pronounces her words and watching her figure out new things on a daily basis.  She’s also singing ABCs and loves to dance, play ball and chase. She’s also crazy about her big brother.

I asked James what we should say in this post about her and he said: 1) she’s done a lot of goofy things last year like trying to copy whatever he’s doing,
