So, I turned 26 on Sunday. Yes, twenty-six. TWENTY. SIX.
When did I get so old?!?!
Whatever. I’m not thinking about it. Instead, I’m basking in the glorious pictures that resulted from my party on Saturday night. Wanna see? Good. Because that’s the post I have for you today. A picture post! Hooray!
And of a cocktail party, no less. Everyone had to look pretty — and they did.
(Don’t worry, I’ll be back with recipes soon enough).
Those are my lovely friends Amy and Claire. You’ve seen then both before.
Below, we have take number one…
… and take number two with my friends Caitlin (great name, right?) and a different Amy.
Lauren, who has been on the blog a thousand times…
Isn’t she gorg? And BTW, that hot dress I’m wearing? It’s hers. I love that girl.
That’s Spencer. Isn’t he a cutie? Don’t worry, you’ll see him again .
Hey! You know her! Hi, Katherine! How HOT is she?!
Two of my favorite ladies:
Combo friends pic:
Plus another Claire. Don’t you love her bow?
And Mark! Want some boy eye candy? Check it!
Spencer even “ruined” (okay, improved) a picture Claire and I tried to take together.
It’s okay, we still got one in.
P.S. — You’ll see the AWESOME gift she gave me tomorrow. 🙂
All co-workers! Catherine, Kaitlyn (another great name), and Jacky. Pretty girls!
Two of my favorite boys:
That’s Ben and Cliff. Ben’s single, ladies. Cliff isn’t (sorry).
I love that picture.
Didn’t everyone look beautiful? I’m so glad I had a cocktail party.
Oh, and there was cake!!!
My friend Laura made these delicious cupcakes.
And, in one of the absolute best surprises of my whole birthday, MARK GOT MY FAVORITE BIRTHDAY CAKE RECIPE FROM MY MOM!!!
Words cannot express how happy this made me. (That’s why I needed the caps, bold and italic.) I wish I had my reaction on camera when I found that out.
Mark executed it perfectly.
I know for sure because I had a little piece last, too, and it was just as good as I remembered. Love you, Mark. And I love you, Mom! Thanks for coordinating that!
Thank you to everyone who came to my party!
Back tomorrow with a recap of the actual birthday. 🙂
