Key Lime Pie & Clothing Haul {a february weekend}

February 26, 2017


Celebrated my fifteenth birthday this evening with grandparents!  My actual birthday is March 6th, but since Mom is having her surgery next Thursday this will be the only time we will be able to celebrate with the grandparents. :)  It was a lot of fun!  I got some aesthetic-looking tube watercolor paints and two shirts.  We had Indian Butter Chicken for dinner and key lime pie for dessert.  
I cannot believe a whole year has gone by since my last birthday post—wild!  Tempus fugit (literally)! ;)  I'm wavering between wanting to grow up and wanting to stay a little girl . . .  Fifteen is a big number . . . scary.

(Tip: the pictures below are way easier to see if you click on them) :)

jeans and a striped pink and yellow shirt
grey longsleeved shirt
chambray skirt!
i feel very authentic in these 1980s/90s looking jeans ;)
and the denim dress I was wearing earlier today before I changed for the party
 We did a big spring clothes shopping trip on Saturday! (because we're going to be stuck in the house for a while after Mom's knee surgery.)  I'm not a big shopping-lover, but overall I think we came home with a good haul.  LandsEnd is amazing.  We also hit JCPenny's, Wegmans, and the library.  Yes, it's was one of those "errand days".  Now let's just hope some more warm weather is headed our way! :D  My shortsleeved shirts are getting impatient. ;)

    Happy birthday! I feel the same way about wanting to grow up and yet stay little-I can't believe I will be 16 this fall! Scary!!!
    Wishing you the loveliest of years,

  7. Oh, happy early birthday! <3
    Fifteen was a pretty scary number for me, too, but I lived through it(yeaaaaah, barely. jk. no pressure) and made some wonderful memories during that time! :D
    Those jeans are super cool! I've been wanting some 80's/90's looking jeans, just for fun. Some high-waisted 70's jeans would be awesome, too. ;)

  8. The pictures are lovely!!!
    Happy early birthday dear! Oh I know just what you mean. I want to grow up and explore and see what life will unfold into, but at the same time I want to be little and innocent once again. It's hard.
    I'm glad to be almost 16 though. I feel older and 15 seems so almost-not quite there yet. You know?
    You are so pretty!! Your hair looks great like that! And those clothes are really cute. I love the dress the best. It's pretty and a nice length- SO HARD TO FIND NOWADAYS.
    I loved this post. It makes me feel like a close friend. Like we can just chat about clothes and birthdays and all sorts of jazz. :)

    1. Thank you, Esther!!
      Aww, thanks! I totally agree.
      I definitely know what you mean! 14/15 are weird ages. It's like you're bigger than the little kids, but then you're also not quite as big as the "big kids". ;P
      Thank you!! :D That's really sweet of you to say. Yes, isn't the dress just fab?! I can't get enough of it. They are SO hard to find! Hopefully summer comes soon! (it's shortsleeved so . . .) :)
      So glad you liked it. Aww, you are a close friend, Esther!! My posts always feel so empty without your comments and when they pop in my email I'm just like YAY! <3

    2. You are so welcome. YES I know exactly what that feels like!
      Yes! Even a winter lover like me can't wait to start wearing short sleeves again. Actually for me, summer will be upon us in about three days- Nicaragua is having the hot season right now.
      Though, on the bright side, showers will be nice since we don't have hot water!
      Oh Sophia I am so glad you think so!! I was kind of apprehensive about saying that, just in case you didn't feel the same, so I am SO GLAD you agree! Aww I'm glad about that too! I never know how much is too much. I feel really connected to you, even though we've never met. That totally needs to change some day!

  9. Wonderful, simply wonderful! I hope you had a good celebration --- ACK! FIFTEEN? You are like, two and a half years older than me. FIFTEEN?! That's one year away from sixteen and THAT'S one year from SEVENTEEN AND THAT'S ONE YEAR AWAY FROM EIIIIGHTEEEEN! Sheesh, slow down! Just because I'm as tall as you (I think...) doesn't mean I'm as old! Wait up for me! XD
    Those clothes are cute, I'm glad you like them!

      EEK I know right?! It's just wild. Haha, you're not as quite as tall as me yet. ;) Got a few inches to go. ;) lol (internally I'm like, "ahh whew! I'm not to be considered short yet!!) ;)
      Yes, they're super cute! Thanks!
