A little personal update.

First off- the Big House Big Heart 5K is on Sunday! When I mention my anxiety about it, I get two different responses from people- "it's only 3 miles!" or "3 miles is like a marathon!"
It totally depends on the day for me. I was feeling strong on Wednesday, but today my run was anything but strong, and I started to get discouraged again. I guess we'll just have to see what Sunday brings me! I'll definitely update everyone after the race- I should also have a lovely photo of me all sweaty and gross crossing the finish line to post! :)
I know I'll be seeing some of you there! I hope we'll be able to find each other amidst all the craziness!

Also, as I mentioned before- my birthday was a couple of weeks ago! I totally planned on blogging about it, but was swamped with everything else going on, so I'm blogging about it now :)
On my actual birthday I had Emilie and Andrew's wedding, which the wonderful Kat Foley shot with me! Then- when I got home my sister brought over a pineapple upside-down cake! This is quite an achievement for my sister whose culinary skills are usually nonexistent. Here's the photo I took of it while everyone was singing to me (anything to lessen the attention :) )

Didn't she do a wonderful job?!

It was delicious. And I love how she put a grape in the center cause she didn't have any cherries.... :)

Then, last weekend, I took a break from weddings to celebrate my and Stevie's birthdays!Her birthday was last Wednesday- go wish her a happy birthday! Stevie flew up here on Saturday morning, and I of course immediately put her to work for our 80's party. We made these beautiful cupcakes, that I'm oh so proud of!!!



The party was totally a success! Here are a few photos from the photo booth I set up. Excuse the image quality... my flash was running out of battery power from overuse :)

First up- the birthday girls! (with our birthday wands!)

next, Kat Foley!

My sister, Tasha, came as Madonna!

And I just love this one of Stevie and Andy!

I felt so blessed on my birthday this year. It really demonstrated how amazing my friends are and that there is so much love in my life. I was so overwhelmed by the number of people who came to my party, and the birthday cards, voicemails, texts, etc I received throughout the week! The wonderful people in my life definitely make getting old a little easier!
Much love,
Nicole
