Happy Humpday! Today is extra special for me because it’s my birthday! Woohoo for cheaper insurance rates :P
25 years ago today, my loving mother gave birth to a tiny 5lb blob she would come to know as her daughter…at 3am. I know because she called me this morning to tell me so hahaha. I thought it would be fun to scan some old baby photos. If only things were digital back in the 80s!

I’ll be getting off of work early today to head to the dentist, but I actually like going to the dentist, so no big deal. Then I’ll see if I have enough time to squeeze in a run before dinner with some close friends tonight, which I’m super excited for. I’ll partying it up with more people this weekend! I think this is the most fun birthday I’ve had planned in awhile, so I can’t wait to get this party started.
I hope that your day is swell, and I’ll be sure to catch you up on tonight’s delish eats tomorrow.
Question of the Day: What were some highlights from this past year?
