I got to celebrate with my family on my actual birthday this year since it fell on a Saturday. I started my day with a Carlson's glazed donut just like I wanted, they seriously are the best donuts ever. The rest of the day was spent doing kitchen stuff to get it all finalized followed by dinner. We kept it low key with dinner at the Annapolis Yacht Club. Unfortunately poor Miller was miserable all day because he wouldn't nap and was teething so it was hard to enjoy my night since my little guy was so unhappy. :( My family tried so hard to help me relax and enjoy my night but it's tough to do that when you're baby's unhappy. Still I wouldn't have wanted it any other way then spending it with them, happy or unhappy baby.
I know it looks gross but it really is the best donut ever...

I'm loving the new J.Crew Merino tunic- go buy yourself one if you haven't yet!
My parents and sister gifted me with Black Hunter Boots and they are perfect! I got to test them out last week in the snow and with two pairs of socks on they kept my feet warm. They are a little awkward to walk in but I think that will just take some getting used to
Snow Snow Snow! Y'all I hate snow. A lot. We have gotten so much of it this winter. I'm over it. The only plus side was that Kyle didn't have to travel last week and got to stay home with us for a snow day- which is very rare in his book. The snow day did provide us with time to get the kitchen unpacked and organized too which really helped me feel more settled.
We celebrated Valentine's day at home this year with fajitas and sangria which is pretty much the perfect meal for us. Since my birthday is so close we really don't make a big to-do of Valentine's day but it's still fun to have a night to celebrate love. I found an adorable heart shaped cake mold at Target so I had to buy it make a cake with it. I took the easy way out and just used boxed cake mix- yellow cake with chocolate icing and it was delicious! I think the heart shaped cake is going to be a new V-day tradition in our house.
The kitchen is almost finished!! I am working on a post right now with all the before and after pictures and full details on everything we picked and how we did it. We are back living here but there are still a few punch list items that need to be taken care of. The backsplash went in yesterday so once we take care of a few more things it will be finished. I cannot wait to have all the contractors out of our house and be back on our normal schedule.
