28 is the new black.

Well, post birthday girl here. Oooooh OOOOOOOH (baby momma voice).

It never fails, I cry EVERY year on my birthday. Every one. HA! I always get so overwhelmed with how sweet and thoughtful everyone is. I am truly truly blessed to have so many wonderful and loving people in my life, and I don't deserve it!!

Thank you to everyone one of you who wished me a Happy Birthday. It truly means the world to me!

My morning started extra pink, when my boss had pink flowers, a pink ice bucket, and a pink Barbie cake waiting for me at the office! She's quite frankly-the best boss ever.  She said when she was making my cake her daughter said "Who is Allison, and WHY does she get a Barbie cake..." HA. 

I also got LOTS of Gigi cupcakes throughout the day. From multiple people. I guess I have a reputation here... 

I spent the afternoon having mimosas at my hairdresser's, getting a surprise pedicure, and having dinner with my family. 


It was a great way to meet 28. 

Then last night, I celebrated with my girlfriends!! They are the best friends a girl could ask for, and I don't  know where I would be without each one of them!


The girls got me THESE fancy babies for my birthday!! Aren't they glorious?!
I love them so much. 


Do you love or love? ;) 

they also got me these sassy pants that I cannot wait to wear for fall!


I have them in royal blue also, and they are hands down the softest most comfortable skinny jeans ever! Trust. Get ya some.  

THANK YOU girls!!! I am so excited to have nice sunglasses and new hot pants. haha.


I also wanted to take a minute to highlight some of my favorite tweets from yesterday. I got so much twitter love, thank you thank you to everyone of you who tweeted me! You sure do know how to make a gal feel special! tear. ;) 




The best part about birthdays are just being loved on by the ones who mean the most to you. I am so so blessed and so excited for what 28 has in store! 

I still can't believe I am 28.
