They say it's MY birthday...

Hi guys!! Yes, I am still alive. I know I keep taking breaks but I fully intend to keep things up this time - *ShyScout's honor! I have had a lot of crazy going on in my life and I have been coping the only way I know how - by being a hermit, haha. I think I finally have my life together (as best I can) at this point. I couldn't think of any better way to kick off my blogging return than by starting on my birthday - to new beginnings, am I right? P.S. notice anything different? I did a bit of spring cleaning and tidied up the blog a bit. I also revamped my about me page. Be on the look out for even more changes coming soon.

Today I am twenty four years old. Wahooo!! I had a lot of ups and downs while 23 and I am hoping 24 is smoother sailing. For my birthday a group of my friends and I are going out to dinner and a bar (or two) Friday night so that more people could be on board - I can't wait. While I will not be wearing this dress out on the town tomorrow night I sort of wish I had the guts too...or that I had turned 24 in the 80's...

Maybe one of these days I will wear this crazy number out and about. What occasion calls for such a dress though?
I bought this dress at the designer charity sale back in October and it was a tad too small for me, thankfully, (down nearly 15 pounds) it fits just right now. Wahoo. Seriously, bring on 24! I will be sure to update you all on Monday about the birthday festivities.

I am back people!! Aaand I have missed you all :]

Have a beautiful weekend!

  2. Any occasion calls for such a dress haha!
    But I know what you mean. Last year I bought a stunning Disney-esque gown, but while trying it on and asking the same question to the sales woman, it suddenly dawned on me that you can wear it whenever you go outside or go shopping as people will always assume you either just came from a party or are just making your way over there. They don't know you just threw it on because you felt like it;)

  15. Happy birthday Allison! I'm glad you're back and you started off with a bang, I loooove this dress! You totally should have worn it to dinner, I know I would have. Oh and congrats on the 15 pound weight loss! I don't think I have the will to do that :)

  16. You look like a true Senorita in this dress! I am in love (even more than usual). Also, kudos on the hot bod (though it was just as lovely before!). I could just tell that you've changed a bit and when I read that, I was like, "ah! There it is!" :) But really, you look absolutely fantastic.
    I hope 24 has brought you nothing but good things thus far. <3
