I'm Feeling Twenty-Two

As of this Saturday, I will have been twenty-two for exactly a week!
Everyone keeps saying that twenty-two isn't an exciting birthday, but I beg to differ.

Each birthday that I can celebrate, I just become happier and happier.
It becomes a little less about the presents and more about the presence of those that I love.

Today I want to share with y'all the presents that I got for my birthday, even though like I just said
it's not all about the presents :)
 
My parents gave me that super cute Southern Fried Cotton tee (that I picked out myself...you know you're getting old when that happens, lol)
as well as some EOS lip balms, a really cute bracelet found at a local boutique, and some other really cute clothes that I plan on sharing on the blog another day!

My oldest sister gave me a monogrammed clutch/bag that is in Auburn colors and will be perfect for gameday!
It even had Emmy-Jay hair-ties in it in Auburn colors, which have came in handy with this ninety degree heat we've been having lately.

My other sister is still waiting on my gift to come in or something like that ;)

And Chris, well...my husband completely out did himself.

Our day started out with him letting me sleep in (which is the best gift in itself)
Then, after dropping by my parents house to open my gifts we headed to Birmingham.

We took a trip to the Birmingham Zoo and had such a fun time being big kids.
After that, we headed to the Summit for some shopping.

Chris bought me my very first official Lilly dress (the Janice in Green Heartbreakers).
I've had the Lilly for Target dresses & tops from legit Lilly, but this was my very first dress which made it super special :)

The laptop isn't actually in my possession yet, but that was my "big gift" from Chris.
I'll be using it for school & our business this year.
We have to make another trip to B'Ham with my current Dell in order for them to swap all of my files over, so that's why I don't have it yet!

And my little gift to myself was this pallet that I picked up at Target the other day.
It's a dupe for the Naked pallets and I used it for the first time today.
The colors are super pigmented & I think I really love it :)

I hope y'all enjoyed this little "haul" type post, I just wanted to celebrate a little with y'all!

Until next time. . .

xoxo,
