Not too bad being 33!

Had a fabulous time celebrating our anniversary and my birthday this weekend! Every year my husband and I get a night away for our anniversary and it is amazing how this does wonders for our marriage! We truly look forward  to this every year. To have a full 24 hrs to focus on each other without any other distraction. Makes us feel like newly weds again. Well our anniversary is actually in February but  had a busy month and decided just to combine our celebration with my birthday this year. This for sure worked out to my advantage as my husband hates to shop but he was more than willing to go anywhere I wanted since it was my birthday weekend.  He truly is a great man! We started our night off by  heading to Ceasers Palace and eating at Max Brenners. Yes I'm a proud Vegas girl! The food was really good but the dessert was to die for. Their chocolate fondue was AMAZING!  Well conveniently right across from the restaurant was the huge 3 story  H&M clothing store that I have been wanting to check out for a while. Did I mention how much I love my husband?! If you know me you would  know that I take forever to shop and  I have to check out everything! I could easily spend two hrs in a clothing store just looking without buying a single thing. In this case I walked out buying two items.
    So sleeping in is a luxury for my husband and I and the only down side to a hotel is that checkout time comes way  to soon!  I think out best sleep we have ever had has always been during this once a year over night getaways. Something about those black out curtains and  no noisy  kids to come wake us up. Our day consisted of  eating the breakfast buffet at the hotel  than checking out some other great shopping areas and finally  we went and saw  Hunger games. Wow that was an intense movie! Shame on me for seeing the movie before reading the books and a greater shame that my husband read the books before me! I now feel compelled to read them as I anxious to find out if there is some sort of happy ending to this disturbing story.We ended our night eating at Mimi's Cafe and discussing the movie. By the end of our getaways we always miss our kids and look forward to going home.
      Every year since turning 30 I have always dreaded my birthday as it just meant I was getting older. However this year I have finally learned to embrace my age because I now recognize  that  every year I seem to gain a little bit more understanding about life and value the things that matter most in it a little bit more.I have learned that this this is a good as it gets. To appreciate every day and be happy and content no matter what life throws my way. I know there are always blessings and good to counteract the bad. I have also learned the importance of taking on life one day at a time, slow down a little and putting my trust in God as my life depends on it. It feels great to be 33 today!



                                                 
                                                  Had to match my nails with my outfit!

Love these shoes but wished I had listened to my friend who said I should stash some flip flops in my purse just in case I could't walk anymore.

  5. Happy birthday:) It is always nice to be able to get away and just spend quality time with the hubby! Vegas is the best! We just went there in February. I went shopping with the girls and we stopped at that H&M store. There were soo many awesome clothing choices. I'm like you that I could stay in one store for 2 hours just looking and trying on!

  22. Oh my goodness! I loved this post! I am going to be 32 this year and I can't believe that I am in my 30s already. I do love the place I am in my life though. SO funny that I read this when I did because I am sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight to Vegas. I am itching to go shopping (especially at H&M). More than anything, I am looking forward to sleeping in. I have a 3 year old and a 6 month old (the 6 month old has been keeping us up at night). We are so exhausted and can't wait to rest!
