purple maternity dress

maternity purple dress, long blush cardigan 6

Today's my birthday! There's something that feels very mature about turning 35, maybe it's because according to my OBGYN I'm now of "advanced maternal age" *bleh*, or maybe it's being a momma of a three-year-old with one on the way, but whatever the reason, there's something very adult about being in my mid 30s. I've loved my 30s so far - I married the love of my life a year before turning 30, finished grad school at 30, had my daughter at 31, started Teal and Polka Dots at 32 - and this year bought our dream house and am having our baby boy in about a week! All in all a very good first half of the decade. :)

I'm working today, so no big plans for the big 3-5, just a long lunch with hubby and delicious red velvet cake (my favorite) with my office mates this afternoon. My husband surprised me with the prettiest rose gold drusy earrings for my birthday and a magnifying wall mirror so my old eyes can finally, properly see my face. I love getting birthday goodies!
