July is here, my birth month, and I am ready to start celebrating.
Those of you who know me well know that I am into birthday celebrating big time.
It takes a month to celebrate properly (in my world).
I have been telling Daniel all year that this year we need to down play my birthday because in August Dan is turning the big 4 0 and we need to focus all of our celebrating on that special day.
With this being July 1st, I have been thinking about what I accomplished this year, my 36th.
I have quickly concluded that my only real accomplishment this year was bringing my dear Roscoe into the world.
While there are so many other things I had hoped to do, I really can't think of a bigger accomplishment.
What I have missed the most this year is my beauty.
I mean, I miss feeling beautiful.
I miss the time it takes to make myself feel attractive.
So, for my birthday month, I am giving myself (with Dan's help) 13 days to make myself feel more like "me".
I wrote up a list of to do's and I thought I would share them with you, just in case you want to join in and help me celebrate turning 37.

3. Paint my nails.
4. Take myself to a movie show.
5. Do Yoga without Roscoe and Bono Baby in the room.

8. Cross a life goal off of my list.

13. Celebrate my big day.
I will be sharing photo's of my birthday month adventures and I hope you will join me and celebrate with me.
Think of me next time you paint your nails.
Paint one finger with glitter polish just because.
I am so excited.
p.s. I love that my little man Roscoe looks a little bit like me as a child.
The photo above is of a sneaky little me while visiting my Grandparents in Missouri.
Roscoe makes that same sneaky little face.
