Pits, Peaches, and my Pinterest Birthday

I wanted to be a little whimsical today for turning

Finally I realize this...

Let's start with a birthday edition of 
Peaches and Pits...


So the pits today are that I still get a zit, same time every month, 
even on my birthday, lovely.

My eyelids are now more paper-y than before, 
what is up with that?

Oh and the age spot too, oy vey!

Gray hair, well I have had that for years, but lately they are sure
waging a war against any attempt to hide them.  

I begged the woman at Meijer last weekend to card me,
shameless begging, she still would not play along.  
Honey, my children are as old as sympathy umph!

Somehow the last birthday I remember is turning thirty-two.
Sleep deprivation.

I realize I can dance like I used to, but it looks WAY different.
Trying not to embarrass my children.

The {PITS} Irish Blessing:
May you live to be 100 years, with one extra year to repent.

Disclaimer, these pits are really minor in the grand scheme of life,
but on my birthday I get a free pass.  


I feel more light-hearted today. 

 Left the dishes in the sink!
Livin' large I tell you!

I realize I have no want to impress anyone except my husband and kids.
I'm lucky they already think I'm pretty cool.

Being loved as sweet and as selfless as this...

Even at ninety-two my lovely Grandma, whom I absolutely adore and cherish,
still has her sass....I can be a sassy-pants for a long time.
God willing

I am healthy, I am here to enjoy my life
for that in and of itself I am blessed.
Nothing better.  

Dancing {see PITS above for more explanation}
This would be my song choice today.

and now on to...


What I would wear...
{purple and gold}
my fall favorite
Although skinny jeans and I will never be on friendly terms. 

{egg harbor cafe}

but the restaurant would come to me,
and I would be served in...

My Birthday Surprise...
{dream kitchen}

I would be whisked away on...
a return trip to 
{Kaanapali Beach MAUI}
Where 11 years ago, we honeymooned and my new husband and I danced in the sand.
He wrangled up a cd player, our song, and champagne for my birthday toast on this beach.
I would love to show my kids this place!


I'd have to change into
this sweet outfit...


We'd play in the sun all morning and then...

We'd spend a lazy afternoon driving the 
{Road to Hana}

Of course I would let Matt drive, 
because it can be a little harrowing,
so lazy for the passengers, not the driver.
We'd stop to see the waterfalls and 
eat at the stands along the way.

The kids would think it was heavenly.
This is my dream remember?

We'd make it back in time for the kids to sleep in their beds,
after all the return trip would only be an hour.
Time for a late night dinner.

Matt would have
{hi. Jamie Oliver.}

cook a special, fresh, homestyle dinner for us to eat here
{outdoor dining heaven}

My 29 candle serenade would include
{a 14-layer yellow-with-chocolate-frosting cake}

The night would end with...
{a movie}
I could just curl up here
The playlist... Serendipity, Waitress, Say Anything, 
August Rush, The Pursuit of Happyness (intentionally misspelled)...
I would probably fall asleep in about 5 minutes!

Sounds like a pretty amazing day huh?
It still wouldn't hold a candle to today, really.

The {PEACHES} Irish Blessing:

May God grant you many years to live, for sure he must be knowing, the earth has angels all too few and heaven is overflowing.

Thanks for playing along!
May all your birthday dreams come true!!
