I'm Feeling 22!




Happy Birthday to Me!! I have finally arrived at the end of my birthday month and thought I should do a recap. I was able to celebrate my birthday two weekends in a row this year. Over the weekend of October 11-13, I traveled to Edenton, NC, to visit my family. I updated to the iPhone 5--the government does not need my fingerprint, via iPhone 5s--and was give some gift cards for "big girl clothes" by my brothers, and The Little Mermaid on DVD by my mother! Watching the Little Mermaid as a 22 year old was quite shocking. It's kind of scary! And very intense with the whole Ursula situation...
     I really only had two things on my list this year: The Little Mermaid {check}, and a new purse. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but the Bag Fairy! Bringing me the most perfect specimen of a bag! My very own Dooney & Burke Chelsea Shopper in Black--just like I wanted!
     
     Probably the most amazing bag I've ever owned. Black and brown leather, so it goes with everything. Feet on the bottom to keep it off the floor. And the pockets; have I mentioned the pockets? So many pockets! And I of course love having the shoulder strap option in addition to the top handles. 
     Thank you so much to all my whole family for making this birthday a great one! My school family also got in on the action--we celebrate staff birthdays with a potluck-style lunch. For my celebration, we had the famed Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, along with some Tuscan-style soup. Yummy! Now to get ready for Christopher's birthday in just a few weeks!
